A MEMORY.
Hetwlit td* blown until and the tttrini net
Via Howl it nlKlitlall.   In tlio liollow wont
Tlie ultimate torch ol day fturcil fur a space,
Sank   and   expired.    A wind  Whined  round  tlie
il uttets,
And ragged shreds of vapor, palt and chill,
Went liy ua ln the flaw.   We had no tear
To shed, no word lo say.   Onr stricken heads
Were bowed together, and her suramin;., hair
Swept o'er ray cheek,   Swiftly the gray night fell
And like a huge hand blotted aca aud shore.
I heard her garmenta rustle tn the gloom;
A moment on my breast she laid her brow.
Then turned, and (rom the darkness whera she
fled
A bob csme down the gust,   ""'was ages since,
But memory still broods on that black hour,
—James 11. Kenyan la Mpptncott'a Magazine.

BY  HORACB  WYNDHAM.
It was a quarter to 12 on Saturday
night—a time when, standing as one does
on the threshold of a new week, It Is only
appropriate that new resolutions should
he formed. This, at any rate, was Pbyl-

"Never mind that—you can catch another."
I resigned myself to the inevitable and
sat down again. The pause that followed
was broken by my companion.
"I called you back because you'd forgotten something," she remarked Insinuatingly.
"I don't think so. My overcoat Is ln

"It's something more Important than

Phyllids rose trom her seat and crossed
over to my side. Looking at the matter
impartially I cannot regard her subsi*-
quent action as being strictly in accordance with the dictates of propriety. It
was. however, distinctly tranquillizing—
■nd then there were no spectators.
"Very well," I observed, as sbe returned to her own chair. "Ask me anything
yon like."
"Now, you're nice again." she answered
smilingly. "You csn't think how attractive It makes you. Welt, wbat 1 want
you to do Is to describe all tbe girts you've
fallen In love wltb since last Monday."
"All of tbem?" I echoed, somewhat disconcerted at the unexpectedness of tbe
demand,
f'byllida nodded scqulescence.
"I'm afraid I shall have to go In ten
minutes," I 'replied, looking at my watch.
"I suppose tbat means you couldn't ci-
haast the list before 12 o'clock," she answered sadly.   "I'm disappointed In you
—and after all your solemn promises too."
"I have no wish to deprive you of any
legitimate grievance," I  returned, "but
you wrong me tn thinking"—
"Then   you   haven't—er—yon   know—
wltb any one?"
"Precisely."
"Oh, I'm so glad," she exclaimed
brightly. "I knew I could trust you. You
csn't think wbat a weight you've taken
off my mind, though. Do you know,"
sbe sdded softly. "I think I admire your
frankness more than anything else."
"I hope, Phyllids," 1 answered proudly,
"that you will alwnys Und me meriting
your good opinion In this respect. Such
experiments ss from time to time 1 have
conducted in the matter have ever convinced me that a rigid adherence to truth
Is tbe mora excellent way."
"One should scorn resort to falsehood
from higher motives than those ot mere
policy," retorted Pbytllda severely. "Isn't
there a proverb about It?"
"I hsve heard It said that ■ lie In time

"I cannot permit you to asperse an innocent lady who is not here to defend

was entirely mine."
"Ah, you only say that because you're
a man," returned Phyllida, obviously
softening a little.
"It is the truth," I asserted proudly.
"Never sball it be said of me that I stood
by and saw the character of a woman
assailed in her absence without raising a
voice in her defense."
"Rubbish!" wns the inelegant retort.
"She's a designing minx, I'm sure—and a
cat tool So there! I expect, though,"
she added in another tone, "if only tbe
truth were known, she led you on."
"Well," I admitted reflectively, "her
behavior might certainly be considered—
er—er—encouraging."
"There! I was sure of it all the time,"
cried Phyllida triumphantly. "Tell me,
new, wbat did she do?"
"My dear," I expostulated, "yon really
oughtn't to ask me such things."
"Why, was it so bad as all that?"
1 am afraid I must have unconsciously
nodded an allirmative.    Phyllida came to
my side.
"You poor old  thing,"  she whispered
softly.    "Did  she put ber arms  round
your neck like Ibis wben sbe kissed you?"
This time I notified purposely.
"Oh. the minx!"
"Don't condemn her unheard."I pleaded.
"Yon dear, good natured old goose,"
said Phyllida gently, "it's only your generosity that makes you lind excuses for
her."
"But she was very young." I urged.
"Young, Indeed! H'm—quite old enough
to know better, I'm sure."
"Indeed, Pbylllda. don't think tbls was
the case."
"Well, how old was she?"
"Oh. I don't know exactly; It's not considered polite to ask a lady ber age, yon
know."
"Well, you seem to bsve got on such intimate terms with her that I should bare
thought you would have aaked ber anything."
"I did ask ber mother." I admitted.
"Ah—well, that's something," returned
Phyllida  in  a  decidedly   more  satisfied
tone.   "Tell me, though." she continued,
"slid you ask on the day that she made
this disgraceful exhibition of herself?"
"Meaning?"
"Oh, you know perfectly well—the day
when she kissed you?"
"Yes."
"Weil, how old wns she then?"
"I don't think I ought to tell yon. Phyllida.   Consider, bow woultl you like"—
"But 1 want to know such a lot."
"How much?" I demanded sternly.
"Very much Indeed—please."
"All   right.  I hen:   but  promise you'll
never tell her."
"Of course I  won't— now!"

A New York paper, which seems to
be interested in decrying Canada, allows that there Is every -Jromiso of ti
magnificent crop in Manitoba, but
takes upon itself to say that the
Manitoba farmers "will receive precious little benefit as the proceeds
will bs* devoured by thc Canadian
Pacific monopoly, whose rates are
exorbitant."
Without doubt Canadian Pacific
wheat rates are higher tliun rats-s
for a corresponding distance in Eastern Slates and the Eastern States,
_ut this is merely saying that rates
ln a new and sparsoly settled region
am higher than rates in oldor and
more thickly populated countries,
which Ih not a grievance peculiar to
Manitoba. A fairer test ia to woo how
rates from Manitoba to Fort William
compare with rates from Minnesota
and IHikota to Duiut-h.
Here, too, one would expect to find
Manitoba rales somewhat higher.
While wages are pi-ui.tieully the Hume
In Manitoba as in Minnesota antl the
lliikot.ns, llu> cost of l'olling slock,

states contain a fur larger population than Munilohn. tint output of
grain from them wit'll the volume of
return freight from Lake Superior iH
vs-ry much greater, and the amount
of local t rattle more considerable.
Nevertheless, rates from Manitoba,
that is, the rates in force last year,
to Fort William compared very favorably indeed with rats* from Min-
ncHotn and  IHikota to   Duluth.
A glancu at the map shows that, the
wheat   belt south of the line is considerably  nearer  Lake .Superior  tliun

rather at Portage and Brandon.     It I

in Manitoba,  is 021) miles from Fort

Great Northern, Mr. J. J. Hill's rond.
equi-distant  from  Duluth,  wo would
find    ourselves   landed  in   Montana,
Where no wheat to speak of is grown
and  where,   consequently,   no  special
rate is quoted.   A nominal local rate
for wheat is quoted, but it would be
clearly unfair to the Great Northern
to compare it with tho through rate
on the Canadian Pacific from  Uelor-
aine  to  Fort William.      It  is  necessary,   therefore,   :'n   order  to  be  perfectly  just to    con-fine     ourselves  to
rates from points  in Minnesota and
the Dakotos that are well within the
wheat   belts of those states; In other
words, to compare rates on the shorter hauls of the Great Northern with
thosi' on the longer hauls of the Canadian Pacific.
Tlie Croat Northern is selected for
comparison because it used io be
charged that thu Northern Pacific
was in league with tho Canadian Pacific to oppress the farmer. The wheel
tariff in force lust fall on the Grs'iit
Northern was known as G.F.O. <14(K),

YOUNG WOMEN
Ancemia, or thin, watery blood, is increasing to an alarming extent among the school girls and young vromen of our
land. Pale gums, tongue and eyelids, muscular weakness, in-
ability for exertion, deficient appetite, impaired digestion, short
breath, palpitation of the heart, attacks of vomiting, swooninir,
hysteria and irregularities of the feminine organs are among the
unmistakable symptoms of ana-mia or poor qualify of blood.
Anaimic persons arc frequently said to be going into a decline, and as a fact do usually contract consumption or some
fatal constitutional disease if they neglect to restore normal
vigor. Fresh air, sunlight, moderate exercise and the regular
use of Dr. Chase's Nerve Food after each meal will restore new
vitality to the body and new color to the cheek of any ana-mic
person. Gradually and thoroughly it forms! new red corpuscles
in the blood and wins back perfect health and strength.

NOT A CASE OF LUCK.
CemntsMk Lede Discovered Aft**
Hard "Work and I'erseveraiser,
Just beyond "the divide" two men kep*
• store. They wero Jumcs L. Flood nu'
Willinm O'Brien. They had saved soma
money after a few years of trading witli
the uiiuers, Were ready for a deal ln one
of the milieu uml had faith In Mackay
and Fair. So, when Mackay walked int»
their store one morning and remarked,
"Jim Flood, if you nnd O'Brien will put
up the money, Fnlr nnd 1 will put up ths
brains, nnd I think the four of us can buy
Ihe 'Con' Virginia and umka something
otit of It."
"How much do you want, John?" said
Flood.
"nighty thousand dollars."
Tho tleiil waa cIuhiiI on the spot. Tha
history of tho "Con" Virginia Is as well
known almost as the story of Washington and Iho cherry tree. Before the four
miners had struck the "load" they had «•
hnustcd their money and their credit.
There seemed to be nothing in the rock
they broiiuht out of tho earth. Other minors met them day after day and laughed
at their apparently hopeless task. They
were jeered and made fun of. . ut they
ki'pt serions faces and sober minds and
were not to be thwarted by the idle talk
ef idlers.
One morning, when the prospect seemed Ihe blackest, a friend suid to Mackay:
"John, luck hus gone ngninst you. Why
don't you quit and go prospecting?"
"The man who figures on luck in mining," snisl Murkily, "is a fool. The man
who figures on doing a lot of hard work
nnd not losing his grit will get something."
Tho four partners did not lose their
grit, nor did they rely on luck. One afternoon the rumor sprend over Virginia City
thnt the " 'Con' Virginia men" hnd struck
a bosly of ore. It spread as wildfire often
swept over the Nevada prairies. The foul
men left their mine at sundown and
walked down C street amid a babel ot
cheers. The next morning the ConBolidnt*
cd Yirginin stock hud gone from 80 centl
to $-."iii a share anil in another dny up ta
$r*00 a share. In three days it was an-
nouncesl thnt the body of rock wns s«
large that its vnlus. could not be estimated. In two weeks the Uuited States gov-
eminent wns negotiating with the owners of the mine for the retlemption of
bonds whoso vnlties had been affected by
the civil war. ln two months the financial centers of oh] Kurope hnd felt thi
shock, and nbout the same time Mackay,
Flood, Fnir nnd O'Brien wero able to an*"
nounm thnt they wen* millionaires beyond tho dreams of avarice.—Success.

health—perhaps even life itself— to
lir.Willinins' I'ink Pills In Mrs. Alex.
Fnlr, a well known and highly esteemed resident of West Willinms
township, Middlesex Co., Out. For
nearly two years Mrs. Fair was a
great sullercr from troubles "brought
on by a severe attack of lugrippe.
A reporter who called was cordially
received by both Mr. and Mrs. Fair
and was given tho following facts
of tho ease; "In the spring of 1890
I was attacked by lugrippe for Which
I was treated by our family doctor
but iiiKti'utl of getting better I gradually grew worse until my whole
body became wrecked with pains. I
consulted one of the best doctors in
Ontario, nnd for nearly eighteen
months followed his treatment, but
without uny material benefit, I hatl
a terrible cough which caused intense
pains in my bead ant' limns; I be-
ciinie very wenk, could not. slooop,
and for over a year I could only
talk in a whisper and sometimes my
voice left DU entirely. I came to regard my condition us hopeless, but
my husband urged further treatment
and on his ndv'ce our family doctor,
with Iwo others, held a consultation
the result of which was th*at they
pronounced my rase incurable. Neighbors ndvisetl tiie to try Dr.Williams'
I'ink Fills, but after having already
spent, over $500 in doctors' liuili-
ditl not have much faith left, 'n nny
medicine but as a last resort 1 finally
decided to give them a trial. I had
not taken ninny boxes of the pills before 1 noticed on improvement, in my
condition, nnd this encouraged me to
continue their use. After taking the
pills for several months. I was completely restored to health. The cough
disappeared ; I no longer suffered
from iho terrible pains 1 once endured; my voice became strong again ;
my appetite Improved and I was
abls* to obtain restful sleep once
more. While taking the pills I gained
37 pounds in weight. All this I owe
to Dr. Williams'i'ink Pills and I feel
that I cannot say enough in their favor, for I know tbat tliey have cst-
ta'nly saved my life.'
Tn ensos of this kind Dr. Williams'
I'ink Tills will give more certain and
speedy results than nny other medicines. They net directly on the blood
thus reaching the root of the trouble
and driving every vestige of disease
from the system. Sold by all dealers

CONVULSIONS.
GKO.H. SHAW,
Trtsf. M gt
They   Arc  Moro   Serions  For  Adults
Tlsnss For Clilltlren.
The sifrht of n person in convulsions is
terrifying, hut in the great majority ot
eases the sufferer is in no Immediate danger. Whether or not the convulsion foreshadows u serious eiuling depends upon
n variety of causes, As a rule, convulsions are more serious in adults than in
children, especially very young children.
Two tilings arc necessary tor the occurrence tsf convulsions—first an unstable
condition of the uerVOUS system—the predisposing cause—and. secondly, some exciting cause sufficient to disorder the
weakened nerve centers. The instability
of tlie nervous system is more pronounced
in children than in adults ami seems of-
icn to he hereditary, the members of certain families being more prone to fits
than others.
Certain chronic diseases of nutrition,
such «is rickets, nre associated witk nn
Irritability of the bruin nnd spinnl conl,
mil convulsions nre peculiarly frequent
in slsilslien snlTeiiiig from such diseases.
Convulsions In children nre very common nt the onset of one of the acute fevers, such ns scarlatina or measles. At
that time the convulsions have no special
significance, but when occurring Inter
liming in attack of scarlet fever tliey
mny point to the existence of a kidney
disease, In whooping cough convulsions
nre sometimes produced in conseQuencs
of deficient aeration of tbe blood, owing
to a partial collapse of tbe lungs.
In children convulsions nre perhaps
most commonly the result of some disorder of the digestive tract, caused by tbe
presence of Indigestible material in the
stnmm h or bowels, or sif Intestinal
worms.
, Inllnmmiition of the car is another com-
iiism exciting cause of convulsions, bul
toothing, which is blamed fs>r so ranny
fits, very seldom causes convulsions unless the eruption of the teeth is exceed*
ingly difficult uml painful.
In children, as in adults, convulsions
niuy he tine to hysteria or to epilepsy.
They mny be caused by n great shock In
the nervous system, such ns a severe
fright. Meningitis or n tumor of the
brail] may nlso cause them, both in chil
Iri'ii nnd in adults.
Whatever the eanse, it will be safe to
put a s'hiid with convulsions Into s not
too hot bath—soy nt a temperature of
ibotit Hi! or i>" degrees.
Nerve sedatives are usually prescribed
in the hope of preventing ,". second convulsion, but the cause, if discoverable,
