STREET IMPROVEMENTS AGAIN.
Our editorial of lust week has met witli
many responses, all of them, so far, in hearty
accord with ur in the desire for street improvements. Hut some, while admitting the need
of a sidewalk to thc Posl-ofilce* pe-inl out the
equally pressing need of an extension of a few
hundred feet of sidewalk from the Cumming
store to the Government offices.
Without having to set aside the Project
already advocated we readily endorse this
ncw suggestion. The fact that it hns come
from sources which do not often give sugges
lions respecting public matters, leads Ui to
believe that uur town is not dead.
Much can he said in favoi of the immediate completion of the sidewalk to the Government offices. The expense of the extension
cannot be mentioned as a hindrance, for a
score of dollar? will supply the material. A
preference mny be advocated for this extension, foi wni'e tiie Post •Office is used
only four days of the week, tlie business a!
the Government offices is continual.
The statement that this town Ims been neglected while outside woik lias been pushed
may be a. fact in favor ot the member for this
district, who does not wish the town in which
he lives tt> be pushed ahead of oilier places
in llie district,. Hui this reason can hardly be
given to explain why some of the most important buildings in town, such as the Court*
house, Government and Telegraph offices,
have been left without sidewalks leading up
tu them, while other places have these conveniences. Not that others havo not needed
them, but the need in front of these buildings is equally great.
GETTING INTO SHAPE.
While we suggest improvements we .slmu'd
not close our eyes to the excellent work carried on in this district within thc last two
vears. Two years ago thc Bridge Riv. r trail
was the cause of" more profanity among pack-
_ts ami prospectors, than all other disputes
put together. The very pack-mules preferred
U) tread the virg 11 Foil rather than to go along .he uian-made obstacle route Even last
year while the trail was good as far as Gib,
Ward's, from that point to the Brett Ranch
ii was nothing but hills and holes. The trail
would pass around the ends ol fallen trees,
and then double bnck tu what might liave
been a straight load.
All thi- is now passing away. There is a
good road Frsm the Steam boa I landing ai the
Mission on past the Brett ranch and at least
half way up to Bridge River. The Government deserve commendation   for this work.
In many other places the roads have been

Dr.    Tulmu-e     Thinks    tho    Prophecy
Ban Ileen in   Part aud I.    Bain,    lul-
fllled—1 .ii.u.-ll to  Death.
Entered ncoordingtoActof I'-rllnmcnt of Canada, in tho year 1001, by William li-lv. of Toronto, at ibo Dop'i. of Agriculture, (jitawa.
Washington, Pec. S.—In this dis-
conrso llr. Talmage recite- sonic
great events and shows that lhe
world is advancing in the right direction; text, Joel il, 30, "I will
show wonders in the heavens and in
the earth."
Dr. Cumming—great nnd good man
—would have told us the exact time
of the fulfillment of this prophecy.
As 1 stopped into his study in London nu my arrival from I'aris just
after the French had surrendered at
Sedan the good doctor said to me:
'It is just, what I had told you
about France. I'euple laughed at nie
because I talked about the seven
horns and the vials, but 1 foresaw
all this from the book of Daniel and
the book of Revelation." -Not taking any such responsibility in the interpretation of the passage, I simply assert that there are in it suggestions of many things in our time.
Our eyes dilate and our heart
quickens in its pulsations as we read
of events in tlie third century, the
sixth century, the'eighth century, the
fourteenth century, but there wero
mure fan-caching events crowded into
the nineteenth century than into any
other, and the last twenty years
eclipse any preceding twenty. We
road in the daily newspapers of
events announced in one paragraph
und without any special emphasis —
events which a Herodotus, a Joseph-
US, a Xenophon. a Gibbon, would
have taken whole chapters or whole
volumes to elaborate. Looking out
upon our time, We must cry out in
thc words of'.the: text, "Wonders in
the heavens and in tho earth!"
I propose to show you that the
time in which we live is wonderful
for disaster and wonderful for blessing, for there must be lights and
shades in this picture ns in all others. Need I argue that our time
is wonderful for disaster? Our world
has had a rough .time since by the
hand of God it was bowled out into
space. It is an epileptic earth—convulsion after ' ' convulsion; frosts
pounding it with sledge hammer of
iceberg and fires melting it with furnaces seven times heated. It i.s a
wonder to me it has lusted so long.
Meteors shooting by on this side and
grazing it and meteors shooting by
on the other side and grazing it,
none of them slowing up for safety.
Whole fleets and navies nnd argosies
and flotillas of worlds sweeping all
about us. Our earth like a lisliing
smack off the..banks of Newfoundland, while the Majestic and St. Paul
and the Kaiser Wilhelm der Qrosse
rush by. Besides that, our world
has by sin been damaged in its internal machinery, and ever and nnon
the furnaces liave burst, and tho
walking beams of the mountains
have broken, and the islands have
shipped a sea, and the great hulk of
the world has been jarred with accidents that ever and anon threatened
immediate demolition.
But it seems to us as if the last
hundred years were especially characterized by disaster — volcanic,
oceanic, epidemic. I say volcanic because 'an earthquake is only a volcano hushed up. When Sfromboli
nnd Cotop.ixi and Vesuvius stop
breathing, lot the foundations of the
earth beware! Seven thousand
earthquakes in two centuries recorded in the catalogue of the British
association! Trajan, the emperor,
goes to ancient Antioch and umid the
splendors of his reception is met by
an earthquake that nearly destroys
tho emperor's life. Lisbon, fair olid
beautiful, at 1 o'clock on the 1st of
November, 1775, in six minutes 60,-
000 have perished, and Voltaire
writes of them. "For that region it
Wns the last judgment, nothing wanting but a trumpet!" Europe and
America feeling the throb—1.500
chimneys in Boston partly or fully
destroyed.
But the disasters of other tithes
have hud their counterpart in inter
times, in 1812 Caracas was caught
in the grip of an (|vrthqUftke, in 1882
in Chile 100,000 square miles of hind
b.v volcanic force upheaved to tour
and seven feet of permanent elevation, in 1854 Japan felt the geological agony; Naples shaken in 1857,
Mexico in 1858; Mendoza, the capital
of the Argentine Republic, in 1861;
Manila terrorized in 1808; the Hawaiian Islands by such force uplifted
and let down in 1871; Nevada, shaken in 1871, Antioch in 1872. California in 1872. San Salvador In 1878,
while In 1883 what subterranean excitement! Ischia, an island of the
Mediterranean, a. beautiful Italian
watering place, vineyard clad, surrounded by all natural charm and
historical reminiscence; yonder Capri,
the summer resort of the Roman emperors; yonder Naples, the paradise
of art—this beautiful island suddenly
trippled into the trough of the earth,
8,000 merrymakers perishing, nnd
some of them so far down beneath
the reach of human obsequies that it
may be said of many a one of them,
as it was said of Muses, .'"lhe Lord
buries him." Italy, all Europe
weeping, all Christendom weeping
where there were hearts to sympathize and Christians to pray. But while
the nations were mei 'iring that
magnitude'of disaster, measuring it
not with the golden rod like ■ that
with which the ungel measured heaven, but'with thc black rule of death.
Java of tho Indian archipelago, the
most fertile island of all the enrth.
is caught in the grip of the earthquake, and mountain after mountain
goes down and city after city until
that island, which produces the best
beverage of all thc world, produced
the ghastliest catastrophe. One hundred thousand people dying, tlead!
(Joining nearer home, on Aug. 31,
188*1, the great earthquake which
prostrated one-half of Charleston, S.
C.
But look at the disasters cyclonic.
At the mouth of the Ganges are
three islands — the Hattiah, the Sun-
deep and the Dakin Shabazpore. fn
the midnight of October, 1S77, on
all those three islands the cry was,
"The waters!" A cyclone arose and
rolled the sea over those three islands, and of a population of -10.-
000, 215,000 were drowned. Only
those saved who had climbed to the
tup of the highest trees! Hid you
ever see a cyclone? No? Then I
pray Ood you may never see one. I
saw a cyclone on the ocean, and it
swept us 800 miles back from our
course, and for thirty-six hours during the cyclone and afler it we expected every moment to go to the
bottom. They told us before we retired at y o'clock that the barometer
had fallen, but at 11 o'clock at night
wo were awakened with the shock of
the waves. All the lights out. Crash
went, all the lifeboats. Waters rushing through the skylights down into
tho cabin and down on the furnaces
until they hissed and smoked in the
deluge. Seven hundred people praying, shrieking. Our great ship poised a moment on the top of a mountain of phosphorescent tire and then
plunged down, down, dowu until it
seemed as if she never would again
bo righted. Ah, you never want to
see a cyclone at sea.
But look at the disasters oceanic.
Shall 1 call the roll of the dead shipping? Yo monsters of the deep, answer when I call your names. Tho
Villo do Havre, the Schiller, the City
of Boston, the Melville, the President, the Cambria, the Oregon, the
lloliegnn. But Why should I go on
calling the roll when none of them
answer and the roll is as long as the
white scroll of the Atlantic surf at
Cape  Hatteras  breakers?'    .
Look at thc disasters epidemic. I
epeak not of the plague in the fourth
century that ravaged Europe and in
.Moscow antl the Neapolitan dominions ani Marseilles wrought such terror in the eighteenth century, but I
look at the yellow fevers and thc
choleras and the diphtherias aiul the
scarlet fevers nnd the typhoids of our
time. From Hurdwar, India, where
every twelfth year 8,000,000 devotees congregate, the caravans brought
the cholera, and that one disease
slew 18,000 in eighteen days in Bos-
sorah. Twelve thousand in one summer slain by it in India and 25,000
in Egypt. Disasters epidemic. Some
of the finest monuments in Greenwood and Laurel Hill and Mount Auburn are to doctors who lost their
lives battling with southern epidemic.
But now I turn tho 'cat in :ny subject, and I plant the white lilies and
tho palm tree amid tue nightshades
aad the myrtle. This age nu me.«
characterized by wonders of disaster
thun by wonders of blessing—blessing of longevity; the average of human life rapidly increasing. Forty
years now worth 100 years once.
Mow I can travel from Manitoba to
New York in less than three days.
In other times it would havo taken
three months. In other words three
days now nro worth three months of
other days. The average of human
life practically greater now than
when Noah lived, with his 950 years,
and Methuselah lived his illiil years.
Blessings of intelligence: The Salmon F. Chases and thc Abraham
Lincolns and the Henry Wilsons of
the coming time will not be required
to learn to read by pine knot lights
or seated on shoemaker's bench, nor
will the Fergusons have to study astronomy while watching the cattle.
Knowledge rolls its tides along every
poor man's door, and his children
may go down and bathe in them. If
the philosophers of a hundred years
ago were called up to recite in a
class with our boys and girls, those
old philosophers would be sent down
to the foot of the class because they
failed to answer the questions! Free
libraries in all the important towns
and cities of the land. Historical alcoves and poetical shelves and magazine tables for all who desire to
walk through them or sit down at
them.
Blessings of quick information:

Wonders of self sacrifice A clergyman told me !n the northwest tti.it
for six years lie was a Missionary at
the extreme north, living 4.00 milea
from a post iiffl-O, and sometimes,

zero, he slept out of doors in winter,
wrapped in rabbit skins woven together. I said: "Is it passible?
You do not. mean 40 degrees below
zero?" He said. "I do, and 1 was
happy." All for Christ! Where
is there any other being thnt will
rally such enthusiasm? Mothers

These things I say because I want
Vpu iu le alert. I warn you to be

une of ihe depots in Dakota said,
"When will you get un Ihe locomotive and lake a ride with .us?"
"Well," said 1, "now, if that suits
you." So I gut un une side uf the
locomotive, and a Methudist minister, whu was alSO invited, gut un
the other side, and between us were
the engineer and the stoker. The
train started. The engineer had his
hand on the agitated pulse of the
great engine. The stoker shoveled in ihe coal and shut
the door with a loud clang.
A        \ast plain      slipped    under
us. and the hills swept by, and that
great monster on which we rode
trembled and bounded and snorted
and   raged   as   it   hurled   us  on. I
said to the Methodist minister on
the other side uf the lncomotive :
"i\ly brother, why should ministers
quarrel about the decrees and free
agency? You see that track, that
linn track, that Iron track; that is
the decree. You see this engineer's
arm; that is free agency. How beau-
ii'ully   they   work   together! They
are going lu take us through. We
could not, do without the track, and
we could not do without the engineer."
So I rejoice day b.v day. Work
for all to do, and we may turn the
crank of the Christian machinery
this way or that, for we are free
agents. But there is the track laid
so long ago no one remembers it—
laid by the hand of the Almighty
Ood in sockets that no terrestrial or
satanic pressure can ever effect.
And along the track the car of the
world's redemption will roll and
roll to the Grand Central depot of
the millennium. I have no anxiety
about the track. I am only afraid
that for our indolence nnd unfaithfulness God will discharge us and
get some other stoker anil some
other engineer. The train is going
through wilh us or without us.
So, my brethren, watch all the
events that are going by. If things
seem to turn out right, give wings
to your joy. If things seem to turn
out wrong, throw out the anchor
of faith and hold fast.
Those of you who are in midlife
may well thank God that you have
seen so many wondrous things, bul
there are people alive to-day who
may live to see the shimmering veil
between the material and the spiritual world lifted. Magnetism, a
word with which we cover up our
ignorance, will yet be tin explored
realm. Electricity, the fiery courser of the sky, that Benjamin Franklin lassoed and Morse antl Bell and
Edison have brought under complete
control, has greater wonders to reveal. Whether here or departed ibis
life, we will see those things. It
does not make much difference whero
we stand, but the higher thc standpoint thc larger the prospect: We
will sec them from heaven if we do
not see them from earth.
Years ago I was at Fire Island,
Long Island, and I went up in the
cupola from which they telegraph to
New York the approach of vessels
hours before they come into port.
There is an opening in the wall, and
the operator puts his telescope
through that opening and looks out
and sees vessels far out at sea.
While I wns talking with him he
went up and looked out. He said,
"We are expecting the Arizona tonight." I said: " Is it possible
'-on know all those vessels? Do you
know them as you know a man's
face!" He said: "Yes. I never
make a mistake. Before I see the
hulls I often know them by the
masts. 1 know them all—I have
watched them so long."
Oh, what a grand thing it is to
have ships telegraphed and heralded
long before they come to port, that
fiiends may come down to the wharf
and welcome their long absent
ones! So to-day we take our stand
in the watch tower, and through the
glass of Inspiration we look oil and
see a whole licet of ships coming in.
That is thc ship of peace, flag with
one star of Bethlehem floating
above the top gallants. That is
the ship of thc church, mark of salt
water high upon the smokestack,
showing slie has had rough went bee,
but the Captain of Salvation commands her nnd all is well with her.
The ship of heaven, mightiest craft
ever launched, millions uf passengers
waiting fur millions mure, prophets
nnd apostles and martyrs iu the
cabin, conquerors at Hie foot of tho
mast, while from the rigging hands
arc waving this way as if they knew
us, and we wave back again, for
they are ours. They went out from
our own households. Ours! Ile.il,
hail! Put ull the black and put
on the white. Stop tolling tho
funeral bell and ring the wedding
anthem. Shut up the hearse and
take  the   chariot.
Now the ship conies around tho
great headland. Soon she will
strike the wharf and we will go
aboard her. Tears for ships going
out. Laughter for ships coming in.
Now she touches the wharf. Throw
out the planks. Block not up that
gangway with embracing long
lost friend*!, for you will have eternity of reunion. Stand back and

Specimen Annwci- Culled From
Public School i:\aiiiiniitieii** That
V* rile u 11**1,1 Text For a Sermon on
the Method, of Teacltlnir.
The following is from  Mark Twnin's
introduction    to    "English    as    She    Is
Taught," by Caroline B. Le Row, published hy The Century company.  Miss Be
Bow vouches for the genuineness of all
the answers to questions iu public school
examinations that are quoted in the hook:
Every   ono  has   sninpled   "English   ns
She T.s Spoke" nnd "English ns She Is
Wrote."   This little volume furnishes us
an   instructive   nrrty   of   examples   of
"English as She Is Taught" in the public
schools of—well,  this country.   The collection was mnde by a teacher in those
schools, and nil the examples in It are
genuine.   None of them have been tnm-
pered with or doctored in nay way.  Here
nro soia- qunint definitions uf words:
"Alias, n good nian in the Bible."
"Ammonia, the food of the gods."
"Emolument, a headstone to n grave."
"Ipecac, a mnn wdio likes n goud dinner."
Hero is one where the phrnse "publicans nnd sinners" has got mixed up ia the
child's mind with politics, and the result
is n definition which takes one iu a sudden and unexpected way:
'Republican, a siuncr mentioned in the
Bible."
And in Democratic newspapers now
and then.
As to sentences,  hero is ono which—
well, now. how often we do slnm right
into tho truth without ever suspecting it:
"The men employed by the gns company go round and speculate tlie meter."
ludeed they do, dear, and when ynu
grow up many and ninny's the time you
will notice it in the gas bill.
"The coercion of some tilings is remarkable, ns brend and molasses."
"Her hat is contiguous becnuse she
wenrs it ou oue side."
Here is an odd but entirely proper use
of a word and a most sudden descent
from a lofty philosophical altitude to p
very practical and homely illustration:
"We should endenvor to avoid extremes like those of wasps nnd bees."
And here, with "zoological" nnd "geological" in his mind, but not ready to his
tongue, thc small scholar has innocently
gone and let out a couple of secrets
which ought never to have beeu divulged
in any circumstances:
"There are a good many donkeys in
theological gardens."
"Some of the best fossils are found in
theological cabinets."
The chapter on "mathematics" is full
of fruit. From it I tnke a few snmplcs
nininlv in nn unripe state:
"A circle is n round straight line with a
bole in the middle."
"Things which are equal to each other
are eqttnl to anything else."
"To find the number of snunre feet in a
room you multiply the room by the number of the feet. The product is the result."
These pupils did not hunt geography
with a microscope; they hunted with a
shotgun. This is shown by the crippled
condition of the gnmo they brought iu:
"The Rocky mountains arc on the
western side of Philadelphia."
"Cape Hatteras is a vast body of wnter
surrounded by land nud llowdng into the
Gulf of Mexico."
"Ireland is ended the Emigrant Isle
becnuse it is so beautiful nnd green."
"The two most famous volcanoes o'
Europe are Sodom and Gomorrah."
We come now to historical matters—
historical remains, one might sny:
"Washington wVote thc Declaration of
Independence in 1402."
"Queen Isabella of Spain sold her
watch nnd chain and other millinery so
thnt Columbus could discover America."
"The Indians pursued their warfare by
hiding in bushes nnd then s.'.ilping them."
"The Puritans found nn insane asylum
in the wilds of America."
"Hem. Fight was famous for being n
grent widower, having lost several
wives."
"Lord .lames Gordon Bennett instigated the Gordon riots."
"Abraham Lincoln wns born in Wales
In 1500."
In a chapter hended "intellectual" I
find n great number of most interesting
statements. A sample or two may be
foiled not amiss:
"The 'House of the Seven Gables' wns
written by Lord Bryant"
"George Eliot left n wife and children
who mourned greatly for his genius."
"Holmes is a very prutiigute nud amusing writer."
When lhe public school pupil wrestles
with tl.e political features of the grent n>-
onblic, they throw him sometimes:
"A hill becomes a law when the president vetoes it."
Truth crushed to earth wull rise again,
ns follows;
"The constitution of tho United States
Is thnt part of the book nt the end which
nobody rends."
And here she rises once more nnd untimely. There should be a limit to public
school instruction. It cniinot be wise or
well to let the young find out everything:
"Congress is divided into civilized, half
civilized and savage."
The chapter on  "physiology" contninn
much that ought not to be lost to science:
"We hnve nu upper nnd a lower skin.
The lower sk!r moves nil the time, nud
Hie upper skin moves when we do."
in tne stomach starch is changed to
cane sugar and cane sugar to sugar
cane."
If a Inagh is fnir here, not the otrug-
gling child nor the unintelligent teacher
or rather tlie unintelligent bonrds, committees and trustees are the proper target
for it. All through this little book one
detects the sign? of a certain probable
fact, thnt a 1-rge part of the pupil's "instruction" consists in cramming him wdth
obscure nnd wordy "rules" which he does
not understand and has no time 'o understand. It would be as useful to cram him
with brickbats. They would ot least stay.

"There is something rather curious to
me about the distances thut men mny fnll
without getting hurt, observed n New
Orleans contractor, "hut it is not always
the case that a drunken man cnn fnll farther than other men without getting
bruised up or killed. In my own experience in construction work I have observed a few instances wdiere perfectly sober
men liave fallen great distances without
getting hurt. Of course, as a general
thing, a man wdiose muscles are thoroughly relaxed on account uf the inllu-
ence of liquor is less liable to injury thnn
the sober mnn, who will make all kinds
of efforts to catch himself nud who wall
in this wny endanger his limbs by making them rigid and stiff.
"But I recall the case of a man who
was working on a building wdth mo several years ago, nnd at the time he'was
engaged on thc fifth story. Ho was working in ono of tlie windows in the side of
the building. In some way he lost his
balance and went head over heels down
the side of the building toward the sidewalk. The sight mnde me sick, and I wns
actually afraid to look on the sidewalk
below, because I felt certain that my
friend had been mashed into pulp by thc
long fnll. We got down to the ground ns
soon ns possible. I wns surprised when -
failed to sec my friend.
"He hnd not stopped on the sidewalk,
but went crashing into the cellar, and you
can imngine the surprise I felt when I
met my friend with a smile on his face
and making his way to the short, durnmj
steps that led up out of the cellar. I
nsked him if he wns not hurt, nnd he replied thnt the fall jolted him a little and
that his blood chilled somewhat while he
wns going through the air, but he was
not hurt. He had struck nn iron gate
that worked rather ensily on its hinges,
nnd this apparatus allowed him to slide
wdth ease into the basement, and it was
this simple device thnt snved ids life. He
was perfectly sober nt the time too.
"But now mark what happened to nnother friend of mine while he wns under
the influence of wdiisky. He wns not
drunk, hut he was in that condition
called comfortably full. He wns walking
along n sidewalk that was as smooth and
as even os any I ever saw. For some unaccountable rensou he fell. His hend hit
first, nnd it struck in such n wny that it
threw him over on his back. The turn
was sudden, spasmodic, und seemed to
hnve been caused hy a muscular relaxation. He never regained consciousness.
His skull wns fractured badly, nnd he
died in n few hours. These things go to
show that it is not so much a question of
how far a mnn falls. How a fellow hits
seems to he far more iinoortant than the
matter of distance."

How Onr Ancestor. Quarreled.
A study of medlmval rural life Is apt
to give tbe impression that the principal part of the life of the people was
spent In quarreling or In the commission or prosecution of offenses. Our
ancestors certainly were a very litigious and n very disorderly people.
The records teem wltb Instances of men.
and women drawing knives ngnlnst one
nnother, of breaking Into bouses, of
prosecuting ono another for slander.
Then we hnve such entries as these:
"It Is ordained by common consent
that nil the women of tbe village must
refrain tbeir tongues from all slandering." "Thomas, son of Robert Smith,
is lined 12 pence because bis wife Agnes beat Einmn. the wife of Robert,,
the tailor, and Robert, the tailor, sixpence becnuse bis wdfe Emma swore nt
Agnes, the wife of Thomas." "It Is en-
Joined upon nil tbe tenants of the village that none of tbem attack nny others In word or deed, wdth clubs or arrows or knives under penalty of paying
40 shillings."
Such entries, frequently occurring, in
addition to tbe innumerable instances
of Individual attack, slander, petty
(heft and other Immorality seem to
show a community of far from perfect
virtue.
Italian* Love Tomotoei.
Italians more than nny other people

be surprised to learn tbat many of the

BRUMMEL'S SNUFFBOX.
Fear Scots and   Hebrews.
Is it true that a Scotchman can never
he employed in the Bank of England*
London? A gentleman who has traveled
in England nnd Scotland a number of
times recently made the following statement :
"No Scotchman has ever been employed
In the Bank of England either as a clerk
or in nny subordinate enpneity for the
reason that the English controllers of the
bank believe that if they once admitted
a Scot to the bank he would eventually
control its affairs. In fact, it may be
snid, going in nnother direction, that no
Hebrew can make a livelihood iu Scotland for the reason thnt the Scot is quite
ns acute in financial and commercial matters ns tlie Hebrew, and even more so.
This statement may be a little hazy, but
wdiat I wish to sny to you is this—the
controllers of the Bunk of England would
not admit a Scot to any place in the bank
any more than they would a Hebrew for
the reason that the Scot nnd the Hebrew
would eventually control thia great bulwark of  English  finance,"**
The  Breach   Between   the   Bean  nnd
-tin  ltoyn.1  I-tron.
One of the most touching and in its
way pathetic incidents in the drama
"Beau Brummel" is in the last net when
n poor, broken down dandy henrs that his
old patron and prince is passing through
Calais. Nerving himself with n grent effort on his pnrt wdth his Inst remaining
snuffbox, he sends it in the shnpe of a
pence offering nnd token of contrition to
his former royal friend.
No bigger sacrifice wns possible to the
actual George Brummel. In the days of
his prosperity lie had no greater fad than
the collection ot all sorts of snuffboxes.
It amounted, in fact, almost to a mania,
and by his sagacity and good taste he
possessed at one time nn unrivaled collection. During his palmy days of London life there was among his collection
] one box which the regent especially admired.
"Brummel," he said, "this box must bo
mine. Go to Gray's nnd order any box
you like in lieu of it." Brummel of course
assented and nt the snme time begged
thnt the new box might have a miniature
of the prince as its chief ornament, to
which the Intter, much pleased, consented. The box wns ordered, and in its manufacture Srummel took the most active
interest, an interest shared by the prince
himself, wdio suggested several alterations and improvements in the design.
When it wns almost completed, the
qnarrel took place at Clareinont betw*een
the prince nnd the benti, which was the
primary cause of the latter's ultimate
downfall. A day or two after its occurrence Brummel went to the jeweler's to
Inquire about tlie box and was then told
thnt tlie regent had sent express directions that it was not to be delivered.
Brummel's chagrin and surprise were intense, nnd it was this somewhat ungenerous act which first induced him to bear
himself with hostility against the prince
and by his own acts nnd foolish words to
widen a breach wdiich wns to extend for
Ilia   Firat    Elevator.
Tie wns evidently from the country,
this little old German* nnd ns his eyes
rested on the elcvntur, undoubtedly for
the lirst time, his sense of the ridiculous
wits touched.
For a few minutes he stood in wonderment and then, laughing softly to himself, he stopped the first person he chanced to see, wdio happened to he the janitor,

CAREWOKX MOTHERS.
Life  Often  Made a Burden   Through
Nursing a Cross and Fretful Baby.
All babies should be good natured;
well babies, if there is no outward
reason for discomfort, are always
good-natured, and yet now many
mothers permit themselves to be thorough y worn out caring da. and
night foi a sick, cross and fretful
bab,', when a little care and foresight would remove all the tr< able
and muke both mother and bal y
happy The little one's suffering and
crossness may be canst- by any one
of the numerous ills that make l.aby
lives v. misery to themselves and a
constant source of worry and discomfort to the moth'.'r, , suph as colic,
worms, indigestion, constipation, the
irritation accompanying the cutting
of teeth, etc. When baby is cross do
no'., if you value your child's future
welfare, give it any of the so-called
"soothing" medicines, ns they only
stupe.''/ und deaden without removing the cause of the trouble. What is
needed is a simple, vegetable compound such as Baby's Own Tablets,
which reach the root, of all the minor
ailments of little ones, making them
well and happy. The best proof of
this is tht high praise all mothers
who have used this medicine award
it. Mrs. W. S. Beaverstock, Church
street, Brockville, says : "1. have used
Baby s Own Tablets in my house
for several years and know of no
medicine for little ones thut can
equa) them. When my baby wns
teething she was restless, cross and
peovisli and I could do very little
with her I gave her the tablets und
they quieted her when other medicines tlid no good. When baby was
troubled with constipation the tablets always gave prompt relief, but
j above all things 1 think they are
most excellent in indigestion ; she
von.itc _ a great deal, was very cross
and would scream with pain, and I
had lo get up with her many times
during the night. No matter how
much she ate she kept growing thinner. It was then I began ths use of
the tablets, and she grew plump and
fat, and I had no further trouble
with her at night. I can recommend
the tutl-ts to any mother who has a
sickly, cross or fretful baby, and I
am sure she will never be without
them again." Baby's Own Tablets
are easily administered, antl dissolved in water can be given safiiy to
the youngest infant. If your druggist does not keep them send 25
cent** to the Br. Williams Medicine

A
MURE TO BE DREADED THAN AN
OUTBREAK   OF SMALLPOX.
No Epidemic in the Last Quarter of
a Century Has Carried OH as
Many People as Annually Fall
Victims  to Consumption.
Appreciative.
"You have a lino pedigree," said
the American multi-millionaire to
the nobleifntn.
"Y'es," was the nonchalant answer.
"And I want to tell you I appreciate such tilings. If there is anything 1 Kike an interest m it is a
pedigree. Why, whon I was younger I could go. to the races and name
over the ancestry of every horse at
the track."
L'Avenir du Nord, St. Jerome,  Que.
Throughout Canada much alarm
has been felt during the past few
months al the outbreak of smallpox
that has occurred in various localities, and thousands of dollars have
been expended—and rightly so-in suppressing it. And yet year in and
year out this country sutlers from a
plague lhat claims moro victims an-
nuiill,* than have been carried off by
any epidemic during the past quiu-
ter of a century. Consumption—the
great white plague of the north-is
more to be dreaded than any epi-
de le. Its victims throughout, Canada are numbered by the thousands
(Icmic. Its victims throughout Can-
annually, ami through its ravages
bright young lives in every quarter
aro brought to un untimely end.
Why ? Then* are two reasons, the insidious character of the disease, and
the all too prevalent belief that
thos,! who inherit weak lungs are
foredoomed to an early death and
that, the most that eun be done is to
give the loved ones temporary relief
in the journey towards the grave.
This is a great mistake. Medical
science now knows that consumption,
when it has not reached an acute
stage, is curable. But better still, it
is proventible. Su/Terers from weak
lungs who will clothe themselves
properly, who will keep the blood
rich and red, not only need not dread
consumption; but will ultimately become healthy, robust people. Among
those upon whon. consumption had
fastened its fangs, and who have
proved the disease is curable, is Mr.
11 It lege St. Ceorge, of St. Jerome,
Que. His story as related to a reporter of L'Avenir du Nord. will be
of interest to similar sufferers. Mr.
St. (ieorge says : "Up to the nge of
fifteen years I had always enjoyed
the best of health, but at that age I
became greatly run down. I lost
color, suffered constantly from headaches and pains in the sides; my appetite left me and I became very
weak. For upwards of three years—
though I was having medical treatment—the trouble went on. Then I
was attacked by a cough and was
told that I was in consumption. Then
the doctor who was attending me ordered me to the Laurciitinn Mountains in thc hope that the change of
air would benefit me. I remained
there for some time, but did not improve, ami returned home feeling
that I had not much longer to live.
It was then that my parents decided
that 1 should use Dr. Williams' I'ink
Pills, ami I began taking them. After using several boxes my appetite
began to return, and -his seemed to
mark the change which brought about
my recovery, for with the improved
ippitite eame gradual but surely increasing strength. I continued the
use of tile pills, and daily felt the
weakness that had threatened to end
my life disappear, until finally I was
again enjoying good health, and now.
as those who know me can see, 1
show no trace of the illness I passed
through. I believe Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills saved my life, and I hope
my statement will induce similar
sufferers to try them."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills make new,
rich, red blood. With every dose the
blood is strengthened, the quantity
increased, and thus the patient is enabled not only to resist the further
inroad of disease, but i.s soon restored to active health and strength.
If you are ill or weak, or suffering
from any disease due to poor blood
or weak nerves, take Dr. Williams'
Pink Pilb: at once, and they will soon
make you well. These Pills are sold
by all dealers in medicines, or will
be sent post paid at 50 cents a box,
or si.*: boxes for S2.50 by addressing
the Dr. Williams' Medicine Co ,

A Nice Story of the Prince.
M. A. P. tells the following pretty
story of our recent, royal guests: "I
hear a pretty story of .the Duke and
Duchess of Cornwall and York, who,
walking in tlie country near San-
dringham a few days before the beginning of llieir present journey,
came across a woo-begone little boy
sitting at the roudside crying bitterly. The liltle chap, on being
questioned sympathetically by the
Duchess, sobbed out that he had lost
himself. A liltle further cross-examination showed Ilea the youngster
lived in a village about a mile distant, and the Duke and IHtchess determined to see liim home, lint as
the child was evidently tired out,
the Duke stooped down and told him
lo clamber on lo his _houlde._, a
feat which, with Hi" Duchess' help,
lie accomplished, encircling the Duke's
neck with his chubby arms ami
spreading his small Iocs across the
royn! heck. In this fashion lie was
curried triumphantly across tlie meadows and down tin* lanes till the village was reached, to the amazement
and dolight of tl"1 mother end hor
neighbors ul such a restoration. Bo-
fore leaving' the visitors extracted a
promise from llie women that the
hurti *.f this royal pick-a-Jmck should
not liave the 'spanking' lie possibly
deserved."

Testifies to the Powers of the Famous Dodd's Kidney Fills—Cured
of Backache Like Thousands More
Spreads the flood Work Among
His Friends.
Oak Lake, M__f, Nov. _„.—Frank
Colleaux, of this place has turned
missionary. A conscientious sense of
duty has impelled him to spread a
certain good work among his friends
and neighbors. The work in question
is tho work of Dodd's Kidney Pills.
Somo time ago Mr. Colleaux was
cured of Backache. He,had it for
years. Though he didn't know it,
his kidneys were affected, and it was
his kidneys that caused him such
misery.
But he found relief. He ditl more,
ho found a positive cure. He read
that Dodd's Kidney Pills cure Backache. So they do ; they've cured
thousands of cases of it, simply became they act on the kidneys with
siedi splendid effect nnd thus get at
the cause of thnt fearful disablement.
So Frank i.s spreading the good tidings among his friends as fast as he
can. If he meets a man suffering
with backache he tells him right
straight what is really the mattir
with him and recommends Dodd's
Kidney I'iils. In this wny he is thc
means oi helping many a poor victim ef Kidney Disease who might
never have understood that in Dodd's
Kidney Pills he has a sure escape
from his  afflict ion.
"lt gives me a. great amount oi
ple/t.'iire," says Mr. Colleaux. "to recoil, mend Dodd's Kidney Pills to all
niv neighbors and friends. I can testify ti* their excellent curative proper! i.'s for Backache because two
bo*"S cured me."
