THIS RACE ot'l'.STION,
There ia a great deal being laid, es-
peuially by the Conservative leaders
about the stand taken ity tlio people oi
Quebec in the recent general cleotlon;
Clarke, Wallace and Sir [Ilbbert Tupper
ilo nol iie-it;iiti 10 stigmatise the French
in d|.!.' of Quebec as disloyal and the
word "train r ' appears with deplorable
frequency in I heir speeches.
Of comee 1 lot reason in ch ar: the Conservative partv being beaten at the polls
is endeavoring to explain away its de-
lent liy Stirling up racial strife nml
Leading Tory sheets as the Uamilon
Spectator and the Toronto mall nnd
Empire are moat bitter in their denunciation ui the French. Not only is their
course unwarrantable but it is most cle-
liiclcdly ruinous to the good foeliny which
itmti* exist between tlie different ele-
incnls in Canada, if as we all trust we
tie some day to lie a great nation.
Instead of Irving lo unite the two
P"Ople, ot welding into one hainorione
whole 1 tie divi rse elements in oir popu-
lution, lint Conservative leaders who
formally made such I oasta of their
pattiotisin nro deliberately straining
•and destroying litu good feeling which
wiib existed between the English nml
French, No language can lie too strong
f. r men who strive to tnalie political
c -t'ilnl out of a couiae which may lend to
untold bitterness and disunion.
Sliii-e   1763   when   the  French   sur-
r< ndeied Canada to the English,   there
nave been two invasions of Canada, both
y the people i f tl.e United States  one
11   1813 I i Both   tailed; but  the  Btaiid
inker, by the French during   both   nt-
wcks iu defence of the English   government ii a fact in Canadian History; and
1 the   fiUndly   relation,  between   tlie
wo peoples were alloned to hold   sway,
the Imi milt would undoutitedly again, ii
lange   called  rise in Canada's   behalf.
There is no mo'e loyal Canadian   than
Sir vVilfri : Laurier and it  is very fortu-
i tatu ii deed for Canada that Ids tact will
lo much to allow   the ill   feeling   which
he Tory lenders are causing.
I'.ittw In tire the Conservative railingso
nudly nt tint French? When Sir .John
.il. !» maid used in poll his vast majorities
111 Quebec, did they then complain ol
he stress of French rule? Kvery province iiul one in tiie recent elections liar.
■::;•; fifii'i: 1,11 u:'.(•■, and Ileal ly all ol
them went, more Liberal in proportiot
thnn Ontario Went Conietvative Nei-
her was it. in Quebec that Sir Chas.
Tupper, Hugh John McDonald, Darien,
\I011ta_n, McNeil, Foster and man)
other stalwart Conservatives went
down. The hue and cry ngainsl Quebec
is utterly without ground and liable to
cniHc inii-t serious consequence if both
parlicd do not combine to step it.
We print, in another   column a   letter
from the Hev Mr.   Wright   on the  subject of a public library fur Lillooet.   Tun
I'tioscKi roit   con.-iilerers" the suggestion
I a very good one ami is  very   glad   that
Mr. Wright ha,  taken the initiative.   A
t well    conducted   and   a     well   chosen
j libriiry is a boon to any place nnd ns we
j have no earnegio   to provide one for us,
j ae have to buckle down and provide   foi
onrselvep. A united efhrt on tbe part
of tho citizens of Lillooet would procure
a good library at a very low cost, as
books when bought by the lot nro sold
very cheaply, lint nlibraryisonly an r.s
so.into good; we need and need very
badly, a reading room where our young
men can enjoy an hours rend away from
the smoke of ihe bar-room Then arrises tin: question of a building. A good
sized building would have to be erected,
one that would comprises club room fur
athletic sportB a reading room and
library and wo know, for we have seen
tl.e same thin'.' done in other places that
tlie citizens will be more, thnn amply repaid for the expense Incurred, We
only offer this as a suggestion to receive
the consideration of tho town's tolks,

Editor ProBpoctor sir:
Will you allow me, through tlie medium oi"
your paper, to address ihe people of our town
in regard to matters in which we are all, more
ur less interested
A former correspond ent h„s shown lhe
ii ed th) ii i-. for a small hospital in this town.
We wish to second the remarks made in reference to that need. It will not be possible, always, to secure private homes for the injured,
nnd moreover, no home can he expected to
make adequate provision on the shartest
notice. The need we think is evident to us
all, We trust that something will soon be
j done to remedy this defect in our social
organization. The question of a public library
and reading room has been repeatedly discussed in our hearing. There are many men
[n town iwi the winter who, after taking their
metis at the hotels, want some place where
they can go and sit down for a quite read.
Our Iriends at Clinton are far ahead of us in
the respect. Also permit me to draw your attention tti the condition of tlie town cemetery.
The Indian ami Chinese residents in this
locality ore, in touth, setting us an example
iiul we .should follow in thcii steps, by placing
a neat fence around our burying plot.
May we venture to suggest that a subscription list be started in "THE PROSPECTOR11
for one or move of the above objects.
Who will set tlie ball rolling and what will
be our first aim?
Yours Sincerely,
John H. Wright.

The London Chronicle enumerates these
"Oddities" of public life; Lord Salisbury has

leader's death, when the chance.-, of their having met ate exceedinglyremtoe,Mr. Gli■■; one

When God's dear justice is revealed—

Ilia children all will equal stand
Aa flowers in the field.
There each one haa a goodly space—
Each yeoman of the flowery race;
Each has a foothold on the earth,
A place for bii-ineaa and for mirth.
No privilege bars a flower's access
To earth's whole store of preciousneas;
The (lowers stand level on God's floor
With equal nearness to his store.
And flowers, they have no private ends,
Hut stand together as close friends;
They send their beauty on all things,
Au equal gift to clowns and kings.
They worry not; there Is enough
Laid by for them of God's good stuff—

Bends buding on their blameless cheer.
This noble blessedness can be
In kingdoms of equality.

That each one takes what it can use—
Takes what its lifted cup can hold
Of skyey rain and beamy gold,
And all give back, wilh pleasure high,
Their riches to the sun and sky.
Yes, since the first star they have stood
A testament of brotherhood.

"It Is rather a peculiar ease," he began.
I smiled wisely. Every one thinks
Ills case peculiar, lu reality It geuer-
nlly proves unusual only to tbe one
concerned In It.
My book wns turned, face down, on
the window sill. I was ready to listen,
hut Alyn did not go on at once. lie
snt quietly gazing out of tbe wludow
across the river. The smile was still
on my face as I suggested:
"This 'peculiar case' certainly has
Its heroine."
"It has a heroine, yes."
Alyn's eyes were so frank as tbey
met mine. His gaze bad not been so
direct nor his face so clear the last
tinnf I had seen him. A year's absence
from his old associate had certainly
been good for him. It was n pleasure
to look ut him.
Just now his expression puzzled me.
I could not fathom It, but It luvited
me to continue.
"Have you her photograph with
you'!"
"Yes."
He drew out of his breast pocket a
small red leather case and, opening it,
banded It to me. It needed but one
glance nt the painted oval to make me
exclaim Impetuously:
"You love her. No one could doubt
tbat un Instaut."
Such a picture! A dainty little head
covered with short, curling hair; a delicate, loving, tensing face; dark, full,
ben-Itching eyes. The throat was bare,
nnd an Indistinct mass of white gauze
ended the portrait.
"You must love her." I spoke with
conviction.
"I do," returned Alyn—"most sincerely-"
Still his expression puzzled me. An
Inscrutable smile played over his face,
but he delayed begiuulug tbe story be
bad volunteered to tell.
"And she?" I hesitated over the Inquiry remembering what manner of
man It was wbo had gone from us n
year ago.
A gentle expression passed over
Alyu's face.
"1 think she Is fond of me," he replied simply.
I stretched out my hand and Alyn
grasped it warmly.
"I do believe," be said earnestly,
"that If ever a man was fortunate thai
man Is I. Will you care to listen? I
used to tell you things when I was a
boy," he added apologetically.
I picked up my sewing, always lying
ready against such times as this, aud
leaned back lu my rocker.
Alyn reached for the picture. He
leaned his head on oue hand and bis
elbow on the table. In the other hand
ho held the case where his eyes could
rest on the face. His own face became grave.
"It was a year ago. One night—or
morning, rather—I landed on the ferry
on the way to my lodgings. I couldn't
get a street ear or a cab. In fact, I
wns too drunk to think of either, so I
stumbled along just keeping straight
enough to escape the police. In front
of my lodgings Is an electric light A
slight fall of snow had whitened the
pavement and ninde distinct this ease
beneath the light. 1 bad Just strength
and sense enough left to pick It up,
tumble up the stairs aud stretch myself
out ou my couch."
Alyn snapped the case shut nml
paused a moment
"Some time the next day I awoke
and the Brat thing that attracted my
attention wns this—open on the Iloor
nnd her eyes looking up at me—me In
that condition."
An expression of disgust good to see
came over the man's face.
"I quickly shut the case nnd put my
self and my room In order. Then 1 sat
down nnd studied her."
Still absorbed In his narrative, Alyn
opened the case again nud dropped his
eyes ou the photograph.
"I told you this wns a peculiar ease.
and you will think, 1 fear, thnt I am a
peculiar man. Hut the more I looked
nt her the more I wanted to look. I
never parted with the miniature. I
carried It around In my pocket and
thought and thought about her until
she became a living presence to me, a
beautiful woman always with me. I
became nbsentnilnded. The fellows
complained, but I came to have an engagement always when they wanted
me. My engagement was with thls-
the lady of the miniature.   I had lost
my heart to her. About the original of
the photograph 1 reasoned this wny:
She would uot be carrying her own
miniature around in nil probability. It
must have been lost by a friend, and
probably—here was the bard part of It
all—by her lover. If I advertised it,
he would claim It, and I should not
meet her.
"1 didn't advertise. I did something
far more Irrational. I spent my spare
hours searching. I visited stores nud
walked the streets. I haunted the residence part of the city. I went to the
opera and scauned the boxes rather
tlitiu the stage. Needless to sa3', I did
not find her; yet I never lost hope. 7
felt I must And her and look at her.
I felt this afresh every time I opened
this case. I would not give up the
search. When I had exhausted every
resource of my own, 1 did something
which I had shrunk from doing before;
I haunted out the best detective In the
City and told hlin to spare neither time
nor money In finding her.
"Within two weeks I received a note
from him. He was obliged to leave
the town suddenly. He wrote something like this:
" 'I've found hernt 320Water avenue.
Imogcno Munroe. Will give you particulars when I return tomorrow. She
Is anxious to recover the miniature.'
"ltut I could not nwalt the next day,
and saw no reason why It would be
necessary. I hnd the photograph and
would take It to her. Because of It I
should Insure myself a reception at
least.
"I went to 320 Water avenue that
evening. It is nn elegant residence In
perfect keeping with the case nnd face.
I had scribbled on my card, 'The tinder
of the miniature.' The maid who admitted me said that Miss Munroe wns
at home. She took the card and left
me In tbe reception room. It was one
of the most—what shall I call it?—delicious rooms I wns ever In. One side
was lined with deep windows draped
In soft, dainty curtains and tilled with
plants aud flowers. The nlr was heavy
with the scent of roses.
"I stood before one of the windows
looking at the blossoms when she
came. She eunie so quietly nnd gently
that I did not hear her. It was only
when the sweetest, lowest, clearest
voice I hnd ever heard said, 'At last I
am to have my miniature,' that I knew
she was In the room. I confess I trembled ns I turned and took the hand
of"-
Alyn stopped and smiled. It was a
half sad, half amused, wholly Inscrutable smile. My sewing had fallen
Into my lap, and I leaned forward listening breathlessly.
"The baud of the original of the picture. These eyes, this mouth, this delicate complexion, tills same soft curling hair. 1 was looking on It nil. the
same but"—
Alyn raised his eyes. The amusement had faded away.
"Tbe hair wns snowy white, nnd the
skin wns wrinkled. Hers was Indeed
the face of the miniature, the face of
CO years ngo. My foolish fancy wns
destroyed, but In Its place came the
sweetest little white haired lady that
mau was ever privileged to call friend
Aud this miniature! Some way I had
a strange reluctance to part with It,
and s'o here It Is with me now. That
Is nil," concluded Alyn abruptly.
"That Is enough," I said quietly. *1
think that face has stood Jetween you
and"—
Alyn broke In hastily:
"Oh, thnt Is nothing. I couldn't carry this," holding up the photograph,
"Into such places as I bad been.frequenting, nud so—well, It's all right."
Alyn buttoned up his eont and smiled
at me frankly as he went out by way
of the otHce door.

Learning n I.iuiKiiiifrc.
How Is It that Englishmen nre not
the best linguists In Europe? Simply
and solely because of the general and
absurd "deaf and dumb" method of
studying foreign languages. Foreigners learning English know better than
to waste years over books; they simply
"chatter" and learn one word and expression after another, and become
familiar with them by constant repetition, wltb the result that hi a few
months they can speak and write our
language sufficiently well for all practical purposes.—London Mall.
A Submenned Forest.
There Is a submerged forest on the
Columbia river between the Dalles nnd
the Cascade mountains. According to
Mr. G. K. Gilbert, the submergence
took place 350 years ago. and since
then the roots have been under water,
while the upper pnrts of the trunks
have been bared yearly at low water.
The bark Is gone and the wood partly
wasted a way, but some of It Is llrm
nnd looks fresh. This fact seems owing to the durable quality of the wood
of that species—namely, the Pseudot-

Tin' Shortness of Life.
What always strikes oue so forcibly
Is, I think, tbe shortness of human
life, compared with other works of
nature. The lougest life—how short
It is! And half of it one cau hardly call
life, being spent in sleep, which Is
not real existence.
A French preacher I heard once
brought tbe shortness of life strougly
before me by relating in his sermon
bow a saint, in olden days, wishing to
Impress on himself the rapidity of life's
race, when he came to years of discretion, placed 80 marbles lu a glass
Jar, each marble to represent a year of
human life, taking SO years as 1111 outside limit very far exceeding that
Then, taking another glass Jar, from
the first one be took the number of
marbles representlug the years he bad
already passed, and placed them lu the
empty jar, nnd then year by year extracted a marble from the other, till,
more rapidly than he could have
dreamed, tho two Jars contained 40
marbles each. Then still more swiftly
did each year seem to speed away, and
what had so short a time before been
the full Jar became the nearly empty
one, till three, two and then only one
marble remained, nnd life, which
had fooked so long at starting, hnd
swiftly nnd silently melted away.—C.

Not a Question of Ownership.
President Eliot of Harvard told this
story at a dinner:
"A friend of mlue, a college professor, went luto a crowded restaurant
in New York city for luncheon oue hot
day Inst summer. The negro lu charge
of the big corridor where the tint
shelves stood was an Intelligent look-
lug fellow, and his bow and smile were
not of the obsequious, stupid kind so
often affected by colored waiters and
doormen In hotels. He took my friend's
bat and gave no check for It lu return.
An hour later, when the professor
came out of the dining room, tlie negro
glanced at him in a comprehensive
wny, turned to the shelves and handed
him his hat
"My friend Is a man who prides himself ou his powers of observation, aud
the negro's ability to remember to
whom each article of clothing belonged
struck him as being something very
wonderful.
" 'How did you know this was my
bat?' be asked.
" 'I didn't know It, sah,' was tbe reply.
" 'Then why did you give It to me?'
tbe professor persisted.
"'Because you gave It to me, sah.'"
The Conntess of Ayr.
At a dance lu tlie country a gilded
youth from town was complaining that
there wns nobody fit to dauce with.
"Shall I Introduce you to that young
lady over there?" asked his hostess.
"She Is the daughter of the Countess of
Ayr."
Delighted, the young man nssented,
nnd, nfter waltzing with the fair scion
of a noble house, ventured to ask after
her mother, the Countess of Ayr.
"My father, you mean." said the girl.
"No, no, no," said the bewildered
youth, "I was asking after your mother, the Countess of Ayr."
"Y'es," was the reply, "but that's my
father."
Utterly at a loss, the young man
rushed off In search of his hostess and
wild the girl she had made him dnnce
with was "quite mad; told him the
Countess of Ayr wns her father."
"So he Is," answered the lady of the
bouse. "Let me Introduce you to him.

Museles of the Month.
An elastic play of the muscles of the
mouth Is necessary, not ouly for distinct utterance, but for expression of
the face ns well. Next to the eyes, the
mouth has the greatest significance in
the play of the features. When all
the muscles of the mouth nre In normal tension, the line of the mouth Is
waving and benutlful. In singing and
speaking, as well ns In repose, all undue tension of the muscles must be
guarded against, else the mouth may
assume a forced and strained expression.

A DISMAL FAILURE.
The Lost  Joke  He  Tried  to  Piny  on
llis Dear Wife.
"I don't think I'll try any more practical Jokes on my wife. Tbey don't pan

"Elucidate."
"You see, she has a habit of hoisting
the window In our room every night
As 1 usually go to bed last she depends on me to hoist it. Sometimes
1 forget It, and then there's a wild
squabble. Frequently she wakes me
up in the night and asks me to see if
it is open. If I don't she nags nt me
until morning. A night or two ago I
resolved to give hep a hard scare. I
lolled up n lot of old newspapers Into
n long bundle and laid I he package
down by the window. Of course she
was asleep and didn't hear me. Then
I opened the window a little ways
and crept Into bed. Some lime afler
midnight she nudged me and said:
Mini, I'm sure you didn't open that
window. It's like 11 bake oven in lhe
room. Get 1111 nnd see.' So 1 got up,
went to the window nnd threw the
fiisIi as high as it would go. As 1 did
so I gave a little shriek and then Hung
my bundle down lo the wall; below.
It struck wilh a dull thud, nnd I
dodged behind the curtain to nwalt
developments. The room wits very
dork, and I couldn't see my wife, lint
I heard her mine herself to 11 silling
posture. Then she spoke. 'Poor old
Jim.' she quietly said, 'lie's tumbled
out of the window lu his raggedest
nightshirt Wlltll a spectacle he'll be
when they find him In the morning!'
Then she lay down ngiiin and went
to sleep."

It Is by no means impossible that
the newest world lecturer will allude
to the delays of the single until reform. The one meal a day plan wns
successfully practiced by some 80.000,-

and most Intelligent nations of antiquity for nearly  1,000 years.
No unprejudiced observer can deny
that for the vast plurality of our fellow men there Is no other practicable
way to live up to the principle of the
sanitary maxim, "Never to cut till
we have leisure to digest."
Nine out of ten laborers have to hurry from the breakfast table to their
dally work und cannot count upon
more than a few minutes of afternoon
meal rest. The same lu rolling mills,

Less thnn a year's time would suffice
to give tiie one meal habit the force of

like to form an idea of Its universal

of antiquity should lend Peter Hnyle's

Athens and Rome" or De (joinery's
humorous essay, published in the second volume of miscellanies under the

Coffee In Ilnd Enough, and Pine Lumber I* Still Worst-, but the Funic*
From Warm. Moist Sugar Are
Knoimli to Kill an Ordinary Mini.
It waa iu one of the little river front
cut ing houses iu Brooklyn frequented
by sailors from the coasters which are
loading or unloading. A big, powerful
sailor who looked ns if he had never in
his life known what it was to he sick
for a day entered und took a chair opposite a longshoreman who had already
ordered and was waiting for his dinner.
As the sailor was looking over the bill of
fare with that critical and hesitant eye
thnt characterizes Jnck nshore from n
long voyage with n discriminating sen
appetite upon him, the waiter brought in
n cup of steaming coffee and set It down
before the longshoreman. As the odor
of it renched the sailor's nostrils he bent
upon ihe cup a gaze of eou centra ted
disgust aud hatred. Then he turned
deadly pale, rose from his sent nnd stng-
gored toward lhe door.
"Been drinking n little too much for
your tonnage, mate?" asked the proprietor, helping him to the door.
"Haven't had a drop today," said the
man huskily.    "It's that coffee."
"What's the matter witli the coffee?"
asked the proprietor angrily. "There
ain't nay belter coffee than that ou the
river front."
"That's nil right," replied the sailor
wiih an effort, "hut I just got In off a
coffee ship tins morning."
"Oh," snhl the proprietor comprehend
ingly. "If that's the case, I'll fix you off
iu the corner,where you'll be all right."
A table was set for him far from the
others, ami there he nte his dinner in
apparent peace. Now, there was in the
eating house a landsman of an inquiring
turn of mind who failed to understand
the wherefore of all this, so he questioned
Ihe proprietor, who has been long on the
river front and is himself n graduate
from before the mast nnd hns sailed in
many waters of the world.
"Nothing queer nbout that," he said in
response to the landsman's question,
-"lie's been out on a coffee ship; that's
all. He won't waul to see or smell coffee for weeks, let alone taste it."
"Do they feed them nothing but coffee
on the coffee ships?" asked the landsman
in tlie Innocence of his soul.
"Keed 'em? 'Tisn't the feed; it's the
smell that knocks 'cm. For a week or
ten days it isn't bail; it fact. It's rather a
pleasant smell, that of the green berry,
but after thnt it begins to get on your
mind. In damp weather, if it's a long
voyage, it's something terrible.
"There's other cargoes," continued the
ex-sailor, "that's just us hnd. You might

IF THE LIVER IS DERANGED
There is Sallow Complexion, Fulness About the
Stomach and Pains in the Shoulders and Back —
Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills Act Promptly and
Directly on the Liver.
By a careful consideration of tho following Fyiuptoius yon cau deoirio for
yourself if yonr liver is torpid aud iu-
activa. Tlie liver ia the largest organ
couueoted with the digestive system,
and uh a filterer of bile from the blood
is to a very large extent, responsible for
the health of the whole body.
A sense of fnllnesB and oppression
about tho stomach, a pale, sallow com-
plexiou and pain iu the shoulders and
bnok are among the first indications of
a disordered liver.
Then there comes   indigestion, wind
on the stomach, headaohe,   coated ten
gim,   a   bitter taste in the month, depression of spirits aud despondency.
The bowels become Irregular aud
oonstipation nnd looseness tilteruato.
The bile left iu the blood by an iuac
tive liver poisons *,he blood and causes
liver spotB, blotches and pimples.
So great is tho iufluenco of tho liver
over the health of other organs that
physicians have called the liver the
governor or controller ot the bony.
The prescription from which Dr.
Ohase's Kldmy-Liver  Fills  ore  pre
pared was perfected by tho doctor in
his imuicnso practice aud has proven
the greatest liver regulator ever discovered. It acts directly and promptly ou tho liver, making it activo and
vigorous aa a filtering organ. At the
satuo time it regulates and touoa up
the kidneys aud bowels and gets the
whole filtering uud excretory system
iu healthy winking order.
Notwithstanding tbe fanio of Dr.
Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills throughout
this continent, you will never fully
realize nud appreciate their value until
yon have actually used them, aud ouly
then can you fully understand why
they have such nn enormous salo.

a law that no subject Bliall touch the

Alfonso XIII nearly suffered a severe fitll from this rule in his childhood. Au iiuut of his made liiiii a present of a swing. When he used it for
the lirst time, the motion frightened
him, and be began to cry, whereupon a
lackey lifted him quietly out of it and
so. uo doubt, preserved hi in from falling.
The breach of etiquette, however,
was flagrant and dreadful. Tbe queen
was obliged to punish it by dismissing
the man from his post. At the same
time she showed hor real feelings on
the subject by appointing liim Immediately to another and better place in
the royal household.
In another case a queen of Spain
nearly lost her life in a dreadful way
owing to this peculiar rule. She had
been thrown when out riding, and, her
foot catching in (lie stirrup, she was
dragged. Her escort would not risk
Interference, and she would have been
dashed to pieces but for the heroic Interposition of a young man wbo stopped the horse and released her from
her dangerous position.
As soon as they saw she was safe
her escort turned to arrest the traitor
who had dared to touch the queen's
foot, but he was not to be seen. Knowing well the penalty he had incurred,
lie made off at once, (led for his life

"What do you mean by starting the

"Can't wait all day for you, lady,"
the conductor snarled. "Just step inside there."
In a uiomeut the western woman,

There is a gray haired joke current
among would be wits depicting the horror with which u woman discovers her
first gray hair and Wie frantic haste wit!)
which she seeks lo remedy it. Hut gray
hair is uo longer a sign of age. Tin
rush and nervous tension of American
life are bringing whitening locks to the
comparatively young, aud the woman
who finds streaks of silver in her brown
or golden tresses should set herself at
once to discover the good and had points
of the change and  lo dress accordingly
Gray hair is uot only beautiful in
itself, but softening to the complex ion
and so picturesque that its coming often
transforms a hitherto plain person into
a distinguished looking individual. Nature seems to have provided it especially
for the time when the darkening and less
clear complexion needed something to
lighten and relieve it. This by its reflected lights it does in n masterly fashion, darkening by contrast the eyes
which age has paled and softening and
clearing tlie skin. What prettier sight is
there than a gracious elderly woman
with waves of soft, snowy hair above
her brow?

What   iiMiiitiri-M".   tail   to  Comprehend.
Soft water for washing is preferable to
hard for various reasons. Iu the hist
place, because it uses less soap, more soap
being required to make a lather with hard
water than witli soil, in the second place,
because hard water contains a deposit ol
lime, which is not good for the clothes,
tending to rot the libers. One soon leains
lo know tin; difference in feeling between
hard aud soft water. There is no substance so hard that it cannot be dissolved
sooner or later with water. Water dissolves the dirt, and water without soap
will do this. We use soap, however, to
soften the grease winch holds the particles of dht, which loosen us the grease is
softened, if. therefore, the water which
you an? Compelled to use is hard, use bo
rax to soften it.—Woman's Hume Com

From  tho Acadien,  Wolfville,  N.  S.
At White Hock Mills, within sound
of thu noisy swish of tin* Gaspereau
river, is a pretty lil tin cottage.
In this cottage there dwells with
her parents Mi.ss Belle Cohoon, a
very bright and attractive young lady who takes a lively Interest in all
the church and Bocicty work of the
little village. A short time utfo an
Acadian •epresentatlvo called upon
Miss Cohoon for lhe purpose of ascertaining her opinion of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills—which remedy he
had been informed she bud been
using, lie was very cordially received
and found both Miss Cohoon und her
mother most enthusiastic and ardent
friends of this great Canadian remedy which is now so universally used
throughout the world. We give bo-
low in essentially her own words
Miss Cohoon's story:
"Three years ago this spring my
heallh was very much run down. I
had not been feeling well for some
time, and when spring opened up and
the weather became wanner my condition became worse. The least exertion exhausted nie and wns followed by an awful feeling of weakness and a rapid palpitation of the
heart. I seemed to lose my ambition
and a feeling of langour and sluggishness took its place. My appetite
failed me and my sleep at night was
disturbed and restless. In fact I was
in a very sorry condition, i suffered
in this way for some time. Then I
began tlio use of Dr. Williams' I'ink
Pills, and they soon began to work
a change for the better. My strength
and spirits Improved wonderfully,
and the old feeling of tiredness began to leave me. My appetite returned and my weight, increased
steadily. By tlie time I had used
less I han half a dozen boxes I felt
stronger than I had done for years.
Since that time whenever I feel the
need of a medicine a prompt use of
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills has always
brought me speedy relief, and in future when ailing I shall never use
anything but these pills, and strongly advise others to follow my example."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills create new
blood, build up the nerves, and thus
drive disease from the system. In
hundreds of cases they have cured
after all oilier medicines have failed,
thus establishing the claim that they
arc a marvel among the triumphs of
modern medical science. 'Ihe genuine
Pink Pills are sold only in boxes,
beiliing the full trade mark, "Dr.
Williams' I'ii.k Pills for Pale People." Protect yourself from imposition hy refusing any pill that does
not bear the registered trade mark
around  the  box.

After some hesitation came an answer lu tlie affirmative, "Y-y-yes."
"Does not her singing please you?"
"Well, no. Why dues she howl?" declared one of the boys, with vexation.
"So you wish lo protest against her
singing?" nsked Lyeff Nikolaevitch In a
serious tone.
"Yes."

A Famous London Tavern.
Tbe Mermaid wns the name of a famous London tavern frequented by
ncted literary men nnd actors during
the reign of Queen Elizabeth. All tbe
wit nnd talent of the time assembled
there for convivial enjoyment. Authors have made It the scene of great
mind combats between such men as
Shakespeare, Ben Jonson, Keaumont,
Fletcher, Seldeu, Carew, Donne nnd
others of reverential memory. It was
the gathering place of the celebrated
Mermaid club, tbe origin of which Is
ascribed to Sir Walter Raleigh. The
Mermaid tavern wns located In Bread
street and was handily reached from
three thoroughfares, so that It lias been
often referred to in various wuys. The
Mermaid lu Bread street, the Mermaid
In Friday street nud tbe Mermaid in
Cheap street were, however, all one
and the same. It was the nearest to
Bread street. The Mermaid was destroyed In the great London lire. There

Invited a friend to go to the theater
with him.
"What play?" queried his friend.
"Nat Goodwin in 'Nathan Hale,'"
said the playwright.
"I'm very sorry," said the friend,
"but you'll have to count me out."
"What's the matter?" asked Hoyt In
surprise.
"Well, to be frank with you, I don't
like Nat (Joodwin in anything. I bate
him personally aud can't enjoy htm as
nn actor, and, as far as I am concerned, 1 wouldn't mind seeing him dead."
"Then this Is your play." slyly added
Mr. Hoyt in bis peculiar Yankee dialect. "You don't want to miss it. They
hang him In the last act."—News Letter.

How Needleii Are Hade.
Needles are all made by machinery.
The piece of mechanism by which the
needle Is manufactured takes the rough
steel wire, cuts It Into proper lengths,
files the point, flattens the head, pierces
the eye, then sharpens the tfhy instrument and gives It that polish familiar
to tho purchaser. There is also a machine by which needles are counted
and placed In the papers In which they
are sold, these being afterward folded
by tho same contrivance.
