ANARCHY.
While the people of the United Slates
have given vent to quite natural express*
sions (if grief at i\\- assassination (if President McKinley, their attitude against anarchy has taken a must inconsistent farm.
Unless incorrectly reported, ma y prominent
men have been making most inflamimtory
remarks, and among thin number are several clergymen, who, instead of preaching
the reign of law ami love, are urging a reign
of terrorism. The Rev. T. DeWitt Talmage
al Ocean Grove is reported to have said. '1
wish with all my heart that the policeman
who arrested Czolgosz had, wilh the butt
end of his pistol, dashed his life out.' I
would.have blown the scoundrel to pieces'
was the remark of the Rev. J. II. Taylor
in Washington. The Rev. John LlnydLce
in New York said, 'Until a belter way is
found, lynch him on the spot. When an a-
narchist makes red-flag speeches, then, and!
not when he has killed a president) he done*
with liim.'
There can he hut one result of such sentiments expressed l»y men of larije influence,
and that is—anarchy. The word 'anarchy'
mtians 'no law.' Countries in which lynch
law dominates, and is advocated by leading
men, are certainly not governed by law; a
country which is not governed hy law is in .1
state of anarchy.
Thc New 1'ork 'Nation', a leading periodical, says: In the last few months our
annals have been blackened by many crimes
of violence; and mobs, no longer content
with banging negio ravishers, have bu_;iin to
burn and torture with a malignity worthy ot
the veriest savages'. If this is not anarchy,
we have no desire  lo see the real article.
The antidote for anarchy is not anarchy,
but law. There is only one way to crush
forever this wide-spreading menace to all
liberty-loving peoples, and lhat is hy compelling absolute obedience to lhe' law,
Fanatics like Emma Goldman will succeed
In their efforts in favor of anarchy, if governments resort to anarchy to extirpate  them,

MORE VALUABLE THAN GOLD.
During the last two years the price
of platinum has been steadily advancing, and now exctede that of fine
gold, having reached as hi^h au $21 per
ounce. Tbia is a little more than double tbe price quoted in 1805, when it reached about tbe lowest p mit in recent
yean-, about $10 an ounce. At the op
euiugoi' 1899 platinum was qu.ted at
properties, ' Tbe affairs of this company
fee in a very bad state, and it is greatly to bu hop id that something will bt
done to Utiprove^them. The property
is recognized everywhere a. a go^d ont
but a certain amount of capital \v

[£00(1 results can be ott.ined.

We und rstand that litigation has
commenced between the Lorne owners
und the Mi es Exploration Co., Messrs'
Martin and Deacon being counsel for
the owners. Tbe li igation is in connection witli the o stamp mill built by
the Exploration Co. on the AWo.lchuk
laim. The owners demand that the
mill and mill-site be handed over to
them, or, in lieu thereof, $7, 500, as
tbev claim that these conditions are
implied in the bond.
Tbis is only another instance of tlie
bad luck which seems to be tho fate of
Lillooet mining properties. The Lome

proposition in B. C.,yet it ha-s been

Thin Boy is Alright.
A story is Iold ol an Irish pedagogue who
flered a prize to tlie boy who could write
the best composition in live minutes on how
to overcome a habit.
The following is the prize essay.
"Well, sir, habit is har.l to overcome.
If you lake off the lirst letter it does not
change 'ahii.' If you take off another you
still have a 'bit' left. If you take off slill
another the whole of 'it' remains. It you
take off another it is not wholly used up, all
of which goes to show that if you want to
get ritl of habit you must throw il off altogether."   Ex.

Its Charm   Illustrated  and Commended by Dr. Talmage.

Washington, Oct. 0. — Tlie charm
of an exalted religion Is by Dr. Talmage in this discourse illustrated
and commended; text, .lub xxviii,
17, "The crystal cannot et.uul it."
Many of Lhc precious BtonCti of the
Bible have conn' to prompt recognition. But fur the present I take
up the less valuable crystal. Job,
in my text, compares saving wisdom with a specimon ol topaz. An
Infidel chemist or mineralogist
would pronounce the latter worth
more than tlie former, but Job
makes an intelligent comparison,
looks at religion and then loo I.s at
the crystal and pronounces the former as of far superior value to the
latter, exclaiming, in the words of
my text, "The crystal cannot equal
it."
Now, it is not a part of my ser-
monic design to depreciate the crystal, whether it be found in Cornish
mine or Harz mountain or Mammoth
cave or tinkling among the pendants of the chandeliers of a palace.
The crystal is the star of the mountain; it is the queen of the cave;
it is the eardrop of the hills; it
finds its heaven in the diamond.
Among all the pages of natural history there is no page more interesting to me than the page of crystal-
logrnphic. But I want to show you
that Job Was right when, taking religion in one hand and the crystal
in the other, he declared that the
former is of far more value and
beauty than tlie latter, recommending it to all the people and to all
the ages, declaring "The crystal
cannot equal  it."
Jn the lirst     place,  I remark that
religion is superior to thc crystal in
exactness.     That  shapeless  mass    of
crystal   against  which  you   accidentally     dashed    your foot is  laid out
with more exactness than nny earthly city.    There are six styles of crystallization   and  all   of  them  divinely      ordained.        Every   crystal   has
mathematical p ecision.  God's geometry reaches through it,  and  it is a
square,  or it is a rectangle,  or it is
a rhomboid,  or in somo  way  it has
a mathematical      figure.     Now,  religion  beats      that in the simple fact
that      spiritual     accuracy      is  more
beautiful     than      material   accuracy.
(Jod's attributes    are exact,     (iod's
law     exact,      tiod's      decrees exact,
God's management   of  tho  world exact.     Never  counting   wrong   though
lie counts   the  grass   blades  and   the
stars  and   thu  sands and  the cycles.
His  providences  never  dealing    with
us  perpendicularly   when  those   providences ought to be oblique, nor laterally  when  they ought to   be vertical.     Everything  in  our  life arranged   without  any   possibility   of     mistake.     Each  life a six-headed  prism.
Born at the right time; dying at the
right  time.     There    are  no   "happen
bo's"  iu our theology.     Jf I thought
this    was      a    slipshod   universe,     I
would be in despair.    God i.s not an
anarchist.    Law,     order, symmetry,
precision,  a perfect square, a perfect
rectangle, a perfect rhomboid, a perfect circle.     The edge  of (.Jod's robe
of government never frays out. There
are no      loose screws  in the world's
machinery.     It  did   not  just  happen
that Napoleon was attacked with indigestion at Borodino so that he became   incompetent   for   the   day.     It
did      not    just      happen   that  John
Thomas,  the missionary,  on a    heathen      island,   waiting  for  an  outfit
and   orders      for  another missionary
tour,   received  that  outfit and   those
orders in a box that floated ashore,
while     the     ship and the crew that
carried tho box were never heard of.
1  believe in a particular providence.
I   believe   God's   geometry   may      bo
seen in  all  our life more  beautifully
than  in  crystallography.    Job     was
right.      "The    crystal    cannot  equal
it."
Again I remark that religion is superior to tho crystal in transparency. Wo know not when or by
Whom glass was lirst discovered.
Beads of it have been found in the
tomb of Alexander Sever US. Vases
of it aro brought up from the ruins
of ITorculaneum. There were female
adornments made out of it It,000
years ago — those adornments found
now attached to the mummies of
Egypt. A great many commentators believe that my text means
glass. What would we do without
the crystul? The crystal in the window to keep out the storm and let
in the day; tho crystal over the
watch, defending its delicate machinery, yet allowing us to see the
hour; the crystal of the telescope,
by which the astronomer brings distant worlds so near he can inspect
them. Oh, the triumph of the crystals In the celebrated windows of
Rouen and Salisbury! But there is
nothing so transparent in a crystal
as in our holy religion. It is a
transparent religion. You can put
it to your eye nnd you see man —
his sin, his soul, his destiny. You
look at God and you see something
of the grandeur of his character. It
is a transparent religion. Infidels
tell us it is opaque. Bo you know
why they tell us it is opaque? H is
because they are blind. "The natural man receiveth not the things
of God because they are spiritually
discerned." There is no trouble
with the crystal. The trouble is
with the eyes which try to look
through it. Wo pray for vision.
Lord, that our eyes may be opened!
When the eye salve cures our blindness, then wo find that religion is
t r.ui. parent.
II   is a   transparent Bible.     All tho
in. unlaiiis of  the Bible come out —
Sinai, the mountain of thc law; J'is-
gaJi, the mountain of prospect; Olivet, the mountain of instruction;
Calvary, the mountain of sacrifice.
All the rivers of the Bible come out
—llidekel, or the river of paradisaical beauty; Jordan, or the rive:- of
holy chrism; Cherith, or the river of
prophetic supply; Mile, or the i iver
of palaces, ami the pure river of life
from under the throne, clear as crystal. While reading this Bible, after our eyes have been touched by
grace, we find it all transparent, and
the earth rocks, now with crucifixion
agony and now with judgment terror-, and Christ appeal's in some of
liis 256 titles, as i.w as I can count
them—the Bread, i he Uock. the tho
Captain, tin- Commander, tin- Conqueror, the Star, and on and beyond
any capacity of mine to rehearse.

Beautiful in its symmetry. When it
presents God's churactcr, it does not
present him as having love like a
■/.real pertuberunce ou one vide of his
nature, hut makes that love in harmony with his justice — a love that
will accept, all those who come to
him. ami a justice lhat will by no
means clear Ihe guilty, Beautiful religion in the sentiment it implants!
Beautiful religion in the hope that
it kindles! Beautiful religion in the
fact that it proposes to garland and
enthrone and cmpnrndi.se an immortal spirit. Solomon says if is a lily.
Paul says it is a crown. 'I'lie Apocalypse says it is a fountain kissed by
the sun. Ezekiel says it is a foliaged
cedar. Chrisl says it is a bridegroom
come to fetch   home; a   bride.     While
Job iti the text takes up a whole
vase of precious stones — the topaz
and tho sapphire ami the chrysopras-
US — he holds oul of this beautiful
vase just ono crystal and holds it
up until it gleams in the warm light
of the eastern sky, and he exclaims,
"The crystal   cannot  equal   it."
Oh, it is not a stale religion; it is
uot a stupid religion; it. is not a
toothless hag, as some seem to have
represented it; it is not a Meg Itfor-
rilies with shriveled arm come to
scare tlie world; it is the fairest
'laughter of God, heiress of all his
wealth; her cheek the morning sky,
her voice tlie music of the south
wind, her step tin; dance of the sea.
Come and woo her. The Spirit and
the Bride say come, and whosoever
will, let him come. Bo you agree with
Solomon and say it is a lily? Then
pluck it and wear it over your heart.
Do you agree witli Paul and say it
is a crown? Then let this hour bo
your coronation. Bo you agree with
tho Apocalypse and say it is a
springing fountain? Then come and
slake the  thirst of your soul. Do
you believe with K/ekiel ami say it
is a foliaged cedar'.' Then come under
its Shadow. Iio you believe with
Christ and say it is a bridegroom
come to fetch home a bride? Then
strike hands with your Lord and
King while I pronounce you everlastingly one. or if you think with
Job that it is a jewel, then put it on
your hand like a ring on your neck
like a bead, on your forehead like a
star, while looking Into 'he mirror
of God's Word you acknowledge,
"The crystal cannot equal   it."
Again, religion is superior to the
crystal in its transformations. The
diamond is only a crystallization.
Curboidte of lime rises until it bo-
comes calcite or arngonito. Hed oxide of Copper crystallizes into cubes
and octahedrons. Thoso crystals
which adorn our persons ami our
homes and our museums huvo only
been resurrected from forms that
were far from lustrous. Scientists for
ages have been examining these wonderful transformations. But I toll
you in the gospel of lln- Son of God'
there is a more wonderful transformation. Over souls by reason of sin
black as coal and hard as Iron God,
by his comforting grace, stoops and
says. "They shall bo mine in tho
day when I make up m,\  jewels."
"Whatl" say you. "Will God wear
jewelry?" If ho wanted if. he could
make the stars of Um heaven his
belt and have thc evening cloud for
the sandals of his feet, but In; does
not want that adornment.      He will
-l.LU_-_. --.-' ' : .     .  ' _
not have that jewelry. When God
.vants jewelry, ! ■■ comes (lown and
ifjzs it out of the ■■■ pi lis and .lark-
rieKs of sin. Those souls are all crystallizations nl mercy, lie puts them
on. and he wears them in the presence oi the whole universe, lie wears
'hem on the hand that Was nailed,
over tho heart that was pierced, on
the temples that were stung. "They
shall be mine," saith the Lord, "in
the day when I make up ny jewels."
Wonderful t ransformation! Where
sin abounded grace shall much more
abound. The carbon becomes the solitaire. "The crystal cannot equal it."
Now, I have no liking for those
people who are always enlarging in
Christian meetings about their early
dissipation. Bo not go Into tho particulars, my brothers. Simply say
you wero sick, but make no display
of your ulcers. The chief slock in
trade of somo ministers and Christian workers se.-ins lo be their early
crimes and dissipations, '"he number of pockets you [licked and the
nuniher of chickens you rtolo make
very    poor prayer meeting  rhetoric.
I'e ides that, il discourages ot her
Christian people who never go1 drunk
or stole anything. But it is pleasant
to know that those who were farthest dowu have b.-en brought highest up. Out of Infernal serfdom into
oternal liberty. Out of darkness into
light. From coal to the solitaire.
"The crystal cannot equal  it."
Bill . my friends, tho chief transforming power of the gospel will not
be seen In this world, and not until
heaven breaks upon the soul. When
that light falls upon the soul, then
you will see the crystals. What a.
magnificent set t ing for t heso jewels
of eternity 1 sometimes hear people
representing heaven in a way that
is   far   from   at tract ive   to  me. It
seems almost a vulgar heaven as
the;/ represent it. with great blotches
of color aud bands of music making
a dea I en ing racket. John represents
heaven as exquisitely beautiful. Three
crystals' In one place he says, "Her
light was like a precious stone, clear
as crystal." In  another place    he
says, "I saw a pure river from ui.der
the throne, clear as crystal." In another place he says, "Before the
throne there was a sea of glass clear
as crystal." Three crystals! John
says crystal atmosphere. That means
health. Balm of eternal June. What
weather after the world's east wind!
No rack of storm clouds. One breath
of that, air will cure the worst tubercle. Crystal light on all the leavye.
Crystal light shimmering on tho topaz, of tho temples. Crystal light
tossing in the plumes of the equestrians of heaven on white horses. But
"the crystal cannot equal it." John
says crystal river. That means joy.
Deep om\ ever rolling. Not one drop
of the Potomac or the Hudson or
ihe Rhine to soil it. Not one tear of
human sorrow lo embitter it. Crystal, the rain out of which it was
made. I 'rystnl, I he bed over which
il. shall roll and ripple. Crystal, its
Infinite surface But "the crystal cannot equal it." John says crystal sea.
That means niultitudiuously vast.
Vast in rapture. Itapturo vast, as the
sea, deep as the sea, ever changing
as the sea. Billows of light. Billows
of beauty, blue wilh skies that, wero
never clouded and green with depths
that were never fathomed. Arctics
and Ant a relics and Mediterraneans
and Atlantics ami Pacifies in crystalline magnificence. Three crystals!
Crystal light falling on a crystal
river. Crystal river rolling into a
crystal sea. But "the crystal cannot
equal   it."
"Oh," says some one, putting his
hand  over his eyes,   "can  it be    that
I   who  have 1 a  iu so much sin and
trouble will ever come to those crystals?" Yes, it may be — it will be.
Heaven wu must have, whatever we
have or have mil, and we come hero
to get it. "Ilow much must I pay
for it?" you say. You will pay for it
just as much as the coal pays to become the diamond. In other words,
nothing. The same Almighty power
that makes the crystal in tho mountain will change your heart which is
harder than stone, for the promise is,
"I will take uw:iy your stony heart,
and I will give you a heart of flesh."
"i 111," snys some one, "it is just
tho doctrine I want. God is to do
everything, and 1 am to do nothing."
My brother, it is not the doctrine
vou want. The coal makes no resistance. It hears the resurrection voice
iu the mountain and it comes to
crystallization; but your heart resists The trouble with you, my
brother, is the coal wants to stay
coal.
1 do not ask you to throw open
the door and let Christ in. 1 only ask
that you stop boiling and barring it.
My friends, we will have to get rid
of our sins. I will have to get rid of
my sins. und you will have to get
rid of your sins. What will we do
with our sins among the three crystals? The crystal atmosphere would
display our pollution. The erystal
river would be befouled with our
touch. Transformation must take
place now or no transformation at
all, Give sin full chance in your
heart and lhe t raiisforinu t ion will bo
downward  instead (jf upward. In
stead of crystal  it will  be a cinder.

A TAX ON Til LIFT.
The conditions existing in New
Zealand are shown in the following
interview in the Toronto Globe with
Mr. Thomas Fleming a leading miller and grain merchant of Invorcar-
yill, N. Z., who recently visited Canada :
In every other country, I__ngland,
Scotland, Ireland, Canada and the
United States, I find that every inducement is given to people willing
to start local industries of any
kind, whereas in New Zealand, per
contra, every obstacle is thrown in
your way. Take, for example, the
railway department. Jn New Zealand, if you wish to start a manufacturing establishment of any kind
you have first of all a tremendous
up-hill fight to get the Biding granted to your mills or manufacturing
establishment. Then you have to
pay every cent that the siding costs,
the railway department reserving the
right to pull up that siding at any
time and take uway aB the material
for which you have paid. Then they
charge you a rental of £ft0 per annum   for   the   siding   that  you     hnv<-
id for. In addfl ion lo all thai
you have to guarantee before get -
ling tlie siding. I.ven the local bodies tax us unduly. I'or instance, in
our own town the corporation
charge us for tlie water wo pump
out of a running river for our boilers and condenser and afterwards return  to  the stream.
"Compulsory arbitration i.s simply
a gigantic failure. The papers are
full of nothing else. Tlie work of the
judge is far in arrears and general
dissxU.is.netion exiists. This government rolled in on the labor troubles
and strikes and have kept the pot
boiling  ever  since.
"The old-ago pensions are a great
drain. The recipients aro not bound
to contribute to the fund; so long us
they keep clear of the jail they get

get il. It is simply a premium on
thriftlessness, a tax on thrift. New
Zealand last year did not increase
in population 2,000 against Canada's
increase of 70,000. There is absolutely no inducement given to Europeans to settlo there. There is no
sign of improvement from present
conditions, and I am going back
with a firm resolve that if I can
leave the country I will do so after
40 years, as I think Canada or Arnica,hold out so much better inducements lo people to get along."
In speaking of tho railway rates
ou the government railways in New
Zealand, Mr. Fleming said that he
found that grain can be carried from
Chicago or Manitoba and thence
across the Atlantic to Britain at as
small a cost as it can be carried
in New Zealand on the government
railways 500 miles. He approved of
the government ownership of railways as they had it iu New Zealand
formerly, when the railways were
under ihe control of an independent
board of commissioners but tho
present government abolished lhat
board and assumed direct control of
the railways with bad results.
FADING OF BUTTER.
How the Genuine Article Ma. I.O..
ltd Attrnctiv. netts.
This Is tlio season of the year when
butter fades In the market and loses
much of its bright yellow, attractive
appearance, writes William Conway in
the Boston Cultivator. Merchants are
considerably bothered with this sudden change in the butter, and it sometimes causes them loss as well as tlie
producor. The cause of this loss of
color Is not always easily ascertained.
It was supposed nt one time that faded
butter was simply artificially colored
butter, losing its coloring matter added
after churning, but this is not necessarily true. Some pure butter that has
been made without any artificial color-
lug seems to bleach out almost the col
or of clean tallow. Naturally butter
thus bleached out does not sell well.
The cause of this is partly due to the
poor handling of the butter.   It Is necessary to keep all the butter at a low
temperature   In   summer   to   make   It
keep, but In transferring It from cold
storage to the store this temperature
is frequently changed quite violently.
The sudden change causes the butter
to undergo ft chemical change In extreme Instances.    It is not nt all unlikely  that this causes  the color to
change nlso and produce the bleached
out appearance.    The greatest care In
handling butter In hot weather _> Inst
ns urgent on the part of commission
merchants  as   the   farmer.     Without
doubt u good deal of the spoiled butter
that sells down  at nominal prices Is
due to the carelessness of the shippers
and  city  merchants.    On  tho   other
hand, this should not release the milkers  from  responsibility,  for much  of
the   poor  butter   Is   duo   to   slovenly
methods of the farmer.    Bleached out
or faded butler may he saused by the
hick of the proper Incorporation of tho
Bait in the mass,    if the salt Is not
thoroughly worked through every part
of the butter there will be some of It
that will become rancid.   This rancidity In a very small part of the butter
will   spread   and   In   timo   cause   the
whole  mass to  undergo   a   chemical
change.    A peculiar tallow or greasy
flavor develops, nnd tho natural yellow of the butter fades to a pale, sickly hue that Is  very  unprepossessing.
In extreme cases, where a high or sudden change of temperature hastens the
process   of   degeneration,   the   butter
may become almost worthless on account of Its appearance.   Tho sale ot
first class butter depends as much upon Its looks as upon Its actual taste.
It Is consequently essential to guard
against anything that will  make the
mass   lose   Its   color  and   bright,   attractive appearance.

Refe/ring to the recent meeting in
Glasgow of agriculturists and others
interested in the removal of restrictions on Canadian cat lie trade The
Herald of thtjt city suvs:
The importance of the meeting
held to devise steps for the removal
of the restrictions on the importation of Canadian cattle, may be
measured by the diversity of its
composition. Those who are promoting the movement are not farmers abme. or tleshers uhuie. or cattle
salesmen alone, or shipowners alone,
hut all iu combination, ami tl.ev
are supported by representatives of
the Local Authority, of ihe Harbor
Authority, and of the general public.
Apart from his intei'CSl in the sub-
Jecl as a consumer of beef every citizen   of  Glasgow   has   an   interest       iu
ii as part proprietor of tho extensive sheds n-ud si ores erected by ihe
corporation for a trade which Was
killed by Ael of Parliament. The
restrictions were imposed in LS92 by
order of the Board of Agriculture.
as a temporary precautionary expedient, ll wns stated, intended and
expected that when all fear of the
import at ion of contagious ploutO
from Canada wns removed ihe restrictions would be withdrawn, and
the importation of Canadian cattle
Into lhe country—and not merely into the slaughter-house — would be
tree once more.
So far, however, from being removed, the restrictions were made
pormonenl by Act of Parliament in
1806, without the production of
nny evidence that the disease which
Was supposed to be guarded agaii *.t
was prevalent in  Canada.    Into   the
reasons urged for that legislation at
lhe i hue we need not now enter.
Certain il is that many who were
then in favor of lhe restrictions now
desire  thai   i ue;,   should   be removed.
The fanners are as anxious to
have Canadian slock for their herds
as the dealers are anxious lo have
free trade in cattle. The point at
present is not whether the restrictions were Justifiable when they were
imposed, but whether there ift any
good reason for continuing them.
As Lord Provost Chisholm defined
the question, if is—"Is there any
evidence lo warrant the maintenance
of these most offensive restrictions?"
Then' appears to be none, but there
is abundant evidence to the contrary. For instance, the Dominion
Minister of Agriculture positively
affirms that contagious pi euro does
not exist in Canada; nml that even
if it did exist, it could not be exported, so thorough are 1 lie regulations anil precautions in force in
Canada. And it was stated by one
of the speakers, who doubtless can
substantiate Ids statement, that in
800,000 Canadian cattle landed on
uur shores nol a. single case of
plcuro   has  been  delected.
If, then, the evidence shows no
cause for the retention of restrictions which can only be justified as
precautionary, il is desirable in the
interests both of t his country and
of Canada to have them removed.
Dut as they are established by Act
of Parliament an Act of Parliament
is needed to abolish them. That is
whero the trouble comes in. It is
always dillicult to gel Parliament to
rev<ike its own deeds. What is
necessary most of all is to elicit a
Strong  expression   of   public  opinion.
The conference was important in
this respect, and as it wns thoroughly representative of all classes, the
resolutions passed by it cannot fail
to have weight wiih the Government
and wiih Parliament. Dut its example should be followed vigorously
hy other communities in Scotland.
It must be demons! rated that this
is no mere question between 'l.e Canadian breeders and the Scutch feeder, but a question of real lutcresl
and vast importance to the whole
community. If Canadian cattle are
healthy we should have ns free uud
unrestricted Importation of them as
we have of  Canadian  wheat.

Symptoms
A Warning to You
That thc blood is losing its richness and the very life itself is being sapped from brain and nerves. You feel weak
and run clown. You get pale and sallow, with dark rings under the eyes. You lose flesh.and the food you eat does not
seem to nourish you. Your hands and feet get cold. You
are nervous and irritable. Litlle things worry you. You
suffer with headache, neuralgia and nervous dyspepsia. You
grow melancholy and depressed at times, find your memory failing  and feel  unable to  concentrate your thoughts.
This is the train of symptoms which lead to nervous prostration and paralysis or land their victim in the epileptic hospital or insane asylum. Nearly everybody needs a nerve restorative and blood builder at certain periods-m their life. When
nerve cells are being wasted away more rapidly than nature can
replace them collapse is certain, unless some means is used to
assist in enriching the blood and creating new nerve force. Dr.
Chase's Nerve Food is the most effective preparation obtainable for thoroughly restoring richness to the blood and strength
and vitality to thc nervous system.

lhe Local Paper Publishes a Column
About His Case—Worst. Form of
Ithcumatisin—Dodd's Kidney Pills
Have Proven a Blessing to Him.
Bundrldgo, Ont., Oct, 7.—(Special)
—The 1'lcho of this place has published a signed statement which cannot fail to interest all who understand the full meaning of thc word
Hheuiuatism from personal experience. A representative of thnt paper
Interviewed Mr. William Doeg, awell
known farmer of Strong Township,
who was cured of Rheumatism by
Dodd's Kidney i'iils this spring, nud
he gave out, the following statement.
for  publication :
"For four years i suffered excruciating torture, during Which time 1
was scarcely an hour free from pain.
The trouble commenced in my back,
Where it often remained stationary
for months, nnd so intense was the
pain that I could not lie down or
take rest, bmt had to sit night, and
day In a chair. The pain would then
remove to other parts of my body,
and when in my knees, disabled me
from walking, confining me constantly   to  my  room.
*'l was treated by several doctors
and also tried many medicines, without receiving any benefit. Almost in
despair I feared f would never again
experience the pleasure of being free
from pain.
"Early this spring uiy attention
was called to some reinurkafble cures
of Kheumalism effected by Dodd's
Kidney Pills. 1 procured a box. and
soon found they wero doing me good,
so I kepi on. until now I can sny I
am a new man, entirely free from
pain and have continued so ever since
being aide to attend 'to my daily duties on the farm und feel strong and
able to work. I verily believe this
great change was effected by Dodd's
Kidney Pills nntl I think it my duty
to make this statement public for the
benefit   of all atllicted  as I was."

SNAKE'S   TA-TE   IN   MUSIC.
Rnpture   Bhown   by   n   Serpent   Over
One of Cbopln'f  Noeturne..
"Dining our first year in Colorado,"
said the ex-ranchman's wife, "my daughter uml myself were desrerati ly lonesome, nnd for the gill's suae more than
tor my own I urged my husband to try
his utmost and tut :i piano brought there.
A Colorado ranch wns then much further from any point of civilization than
it is today, and for a long time the feat
seemed hopeless, Lut at lust, after long
and tedious effort, aa instrument found
its way to our wilderness.
"My daughter hnd u fairly good mo-
sienl education before we went to the
ranch, ami after the arrival of the piuuo
she spent all her leisure time at it. Une
evening, about two weeks utter it enme,
siu* bad spent a couple of hours practicing some *,1* Chopin's waltzes; then she
struck Into the uocturaeB. Chopin is my
favorite among the composers. While I
snt there listening Intently, my elbow
resting on u table l»sMf me and tny head
on my hand, I fell myself Impelled to go
to the window and look out. I bad heard
no sound, everything was us sii.l us
dcutli, but there wus just a consciousness
thnt something mus outside.
"I moved cautiously, peered out slowly
and drew backwsudderily. A Uuge snnke
wns coiled up close tinder the window.
Its body wns perfectly still. Its head
poised in a listening attitude uml swaybig
slightly from side lo side, us ir in rhythmic movement with the music. 1 did not
see this all at oure. I took in tho situation niter I returned to the window und
stood (here watching the creature out uf
range of bis eye nml wondering if iny
presence wool.I mnke Itself fell nnd divert its interest from the music. Hut no;
I don't believe even speeeii would hnve
broken the spell. The creature seemed
dazed, entranced, fnsolnated!
"After watchiug him for a time 1 went
quietly over to my daughter and without
startling her l.y so much ns a hint of my
strange discovery I asked her to desist
foi: u few moments from the minor and
semiweird notes she .wns playing and
strike into one or two lively oil's. She
did so. while I returned nud watched the
reptile.
"After u couple nt minutes of the rattling music the sunke begun to grow restive. I; reared its head, beat it from side
to side and showed other symptoms of
restlessness or anger. Tlie music kept
on; the sunke began to writhe nml shiver
ns if in distress; finally it uncoiled nnd
glided away oui of Bight in the underbrush.
"When I told my discovery to tiie male
portion of tlie family, they were ull ready
to watch for thnt snake nml kill him at
the lirst opportunity, bul I forbade thnt.
I desired to make n further study of liis
love ni music, uml 1 did so. I prepared
my daughter to look for his advent ngnin,
ami his snnkeship did not disappoint us.
Again nml again we watched him creep
to his musical rendezvous, und ngnin und
ngnin we tested the quality of hi.; mil-
Bieal tastes. Wu proved beyond the
shadow of a doubt that low, (wool music,
minor, sad or weird notes, fnscluated that
snake, and that anything lively or noisy
repelled him.
"I grew positively interested in iho
study and oven found "myself bestowing
n sort of hum.'i. pity on the reptile, but
it resulted iu in good, for the other members of the family did not shore my feelings, and I must finish my story by saying thnt tbe creature's love for Chopin's
noetuwes cost lilm his life during oue of
liis visits under onr window."

"I can tell you one thing," said the retired burglar, "we gentlemen of the road
know* a groat deal more ot the value of
tbe small things of a household than tho
families do who own them. Now it would
naturally appear that a creaking door
v.ou_d be an alarm to thc sleepers as well
as to the person entering n house at midnight, but it isn't ko in either case.
"You know there's a saying that creaking dooas hang long. Tho people who
live In a house that has a creaking door
pet so used to it that they never hear it.
Or if they should waken they sleep again
us soon as they recognize the sound. The
best work I have done has been in a
house where the duors creaked and groaned at the lightest touch.
"The next best aid to us is a clock. You
cnn havo no iden how noisy a clock is
until you have been without one in your
Bleeping room and then start in with one
of those round nickel plated timepieces

hows on 130 street, New Vork. I at once obtained a bottle of asthmalenr. My wife
commenced taking it about the first uf November. I very soon noticed a 1 ad;cal
improvement. After using one bottle her asthma had disappeared and she is entire!)
free from all symptoms. I feel that I can consistently recommend the medicine
to   all    who   are  afl.icied   with   this    distressing   disease.    Yours    respectfully,
