Jack Warner thought that he had
made an important dlseoyery, and the

steps, however, when he found himself
face to face with a tall, determined
looking man and a gun.
Tbe two men scrutinized each other
narrowly, while balf a dozen ruffians
gathered round. The man with the
gun finally broke thc silence by saying:
"It's a bad business, your coining
bere, young fellow; but since you bave
come we'll bare to attend to you, I
Wltb that he made a motion to tbe
otber men, and tbey speedily bound
Jack hand and foot.
"Wbat does this mean?' Warner demanded.
"Ob, nothing much," the man with
the gun replied. "About all tt means
Is tbat you will bave to take a both In

In there never comes out"
Warner comprehended tbe man'a

"Great Godl Do you mean to drown
"We mean to put you where yon

Warner tried to collect bis reasoning
faculties und speak calmly.
"liefore going any further let's sit
down and talk tbls matter over. There
Is a misunderstanding," be began.
The otber slowly shook bis bead.
"I guess," be replied, "there ain't no
misunderstanding-on our part, at
least You made tbe mistake wben you
camo bere to spy on us."
"Right tbere you are wrong," Warner said. "I did not come bere to spy
on you."
"Ah. cornel You can't fool us. If
you ain't one of tbem rcvenuers sneaking round to locate our still, wbat are
you doing bere at tbis time of nlgbt
and In all this storm?"
"Well, in tbe first place I am the
new schoolteacher tn this district I've
been bere a week, and you bave probably beard of me. In tbe second place,
tbis being Saturday, I spent tbe day
fishing, remained too late, nnd wltb
this rainstorm I lost my way. In tbe
third place In my wanderings around
tbls morning I accidentally stumbled
on this spot Now there's tbe truth,
the wbole truth and nothing but tbe
truth, so help me."
After a pause tbe man wltb the gun
'Tbnt may be so, but still I don't see
tbot It changes matters any. You'd be
roost sure to report on ua for tbe sake
of the reward."
"I'll pledge you my word of honor

"Maybe you won't; but you see, we
csn't tell about that Sometimes a
man's word and honor don't amount to
nuch. and we can't afford to take no
grent chances. There's no use of all
this talk. We know our duty to our
selves, and we propose to do It Boys,

Two men advanced and took Warner
by the arms to lead blm nway to the

After covering about thirty yards

A cold chill of horror went over

The men began to push Warner forward. In his struggles tbe rope slipped from his arms.' Finding his bands
free, he wrenched himself from thef
grasp of one of tbe men and, striking
blm a quick blow, sent blm reeling
back toward tbe spring. There was a
scream, a heavy splash In tbe water

England by criticizing in a scviaon
King Edward's actions in trying his
hand at brewing beer while on a visit to a brewery, and in breaking .the
Sabbath by attending a Sunday concert.   The Rev. Mr. Parker asked  his
auditors what might be expected of
English churihuieii when the head of

The father of Thomas Jefferson died
In 1757, and tbe son's situation was
tourhingly described by him years afterward tn a letter written to bis eldest
grandson wben be was sent from home
to school for the first time. It is given
ln "Tbe True Thomas Jefferson," by
William B. Curtis. Tbe letter was as
"Wben I recollect that at fourteen
yen/s of age the wbole car* and direction of myself was thrown on myself
entirely, without a relative or friend
qualified to advise or guide me, and
recollect tbe various sorts of bad company wltb wblcb I associated from
time to time. I am astonished that I
did not turn off wltb some of tbem and
become as worthless to society as they
"I bsd tbe good fortune to become
acquainted very early wltb some characters of very high standing and to
feel tbe Incessant wish that I could become as they were."
His father left Instructions for his
education and especially enjoined upon the widow not to permit blm to
neglect "tbe exercise requisite for his
bodye's development" Tbls strong
mnn knew tbe value of strength snd

Mr. John S. Plaskett. B.A., of the.
University of Toronto, gave a most
Interesting address at the Toronto
Camera Club (he other night, explanatory of tlie methods of photography in natural colors. For the
illustration of the subject no less
than live electric projection lanterns
were in commission. Mr. Plaskett
gave a very lucid description of a
n.ost complicated and difficult process, and wouid up by showing some
jnir.ellons pictures in natural colors. The | h jtogtaphs of the Foresters' Anh. and some of tho University of Toronto and the Parliament

is something at which ordinary mortals will not be successful. It calls
for expensive and carefully and sci-
entilii ally constructed apparatus,
and intelligent und most, precise
manipulation. Mr. Plnskett's lecture
was one of the best ever given in

A mctaaafiil llu.a.
A couple of thirsty fellows who
had been loaling all Iho forenoon on
tho quays at .Stockholm wore struck
with a brilliant idea. They borrowed
an old brandy keg and half fllletl it
with water. Th.*n one of them slung
it on his shoulder and took it to the
nearest spirit vault, where he stated
lhat ho had been sent by ono of the
skippers in port to have the keg
filled with brandy.
"Tho captain is sorry he only got
it half full yesterday and thinks It
would be bettor to have it filled to
the top."
Tho keg was accordingly held under the tap till it was full, and the
fellow hoisted it on his shoulder, but
ns ho was about to walk off with it
ho was stopped by the clerk, who demanded payment for the spirits.
"Hasn't our skipper a running account?"
"Certainly not."
"Bless me! 1 must hnvo none to tho
wrong ihopl Thero Is nothing for It
but to empty half i hs* keg back
This was no sooner said than done,
after which our hci'o merrily went in
search of his companion.

hired out to a farmer up in Vermont-'
that le, I wae to have my board and
lodgings for shoveling snow during
the winter, and I thought I bad struck
a soft snap. I had nothing to do but
eat and loaf around for the first two
weeks, but one morning the farmer
roused me up and said tbere was a
trifle of work for me. I stepped out
to find the snow four feet deep on ths
level and still falling, but I tackled the
job wltb proper ambition. I believe 1
lifted fifty tons of snow that day, but
when night came I wasn't much ahead
of tbe storm. It was tbe same the
next day and the next, and after five
days of It, with no signs of letting, up
end every rail fence burled out of
eight, I stopped work loug enough to
ask the farmer:
•"la this thing going to keep right
on for a week longer?'
" 'A week longer?* he repeated, with
a broad grin on his face. 'Why, man,
this is ouly the 3d of December, and
we never figure ou stopping work before the 10th of April. Just buckle
right to It and keep up your appetite.'
"I thought tbe matter over that

WHEAT-The wheat market in the
America,, speculative centres have
shown incre-i-M-d activity during the
week, accompanied by a good deal
of nervousness which at times resulted in some excitement.   .
The immediate cuuse of the increased interest and trading has undoubtedly  been  the apprehension of probable widespread deterioration of the
winter wheat crop over the west and
southwest.    States owing to '.nek  of
sufjicienl  rainfall.   The  rainfall  over
that country has been below the normal ever since the crop was planted
and although there has been no long
period    recently without some rain,
thu quantity received has been very
inadequate, and unless copious rains
coino soon the crop so circumstanced
will |,o much short of a good yield.
Thvio    is, however, a large increase
in  the acreage of winter wheat and
this is by some being depended on to
compensate for the probable smaller
yield.   The spring  wheat  acreage  in
the    United   States    is   expected to
show a fair decrease from last year,
with a corresponding increase in the
oats, corn and barley.     There is no
change    to   report   this   week as to
crops in  Euroke.     They continue to
come along well.   A matter of much
interest  to all concerned in tlio wheat
trade has this week transpired in the
imposing    ol   u   tax   on wheat and
Hour imported into the United Kingdom.   'J lie duty on wheat is 'id and
on Bour fid per hundredweight of 112
pounds which  is equal to about SVic
per  bushel  of OOIhs.  on  wheat.   The
amount   is    probably    too small to
make   any    appreciable diltereiice to
the trade in any respect.
Manitoba wheat has advanced during the week in about Uie same proportion as in the American markets
but the demand has been dull and
trade by no means active. Most of
Our exporters have not bein buying,
us thoy sny it is impossible to pay
the prices for export, and they evidently prefer to be. doing nothing in
the meantime. Navigation at Fort
William opeued last Saturday but
shipping has not bwn so active during the week as was expected. Nevertheless the blockade has now been
relieved and the movement of wheat
from country points is increasing

Advises Him to Use Dodd's Kidney Dills—They Have made a Well

Ottawa, Ont., April 21-(Special.)
Frank Charrand, a railway man,
whose home is at 130 Little Chau-
diere Street, has acknowledged that
•Dodd's Kidney Dills have done more
for him than anything '.-lse in tlio
world has ever done. He says: "I
suffered with backache and was always drowsy and had a very heavy
feeling in my limbs.
"1 had frequent severe headaches
and more times very sharp pains in
the top of my head, which gave me
much annoyance in my work.,
• "My fingers would cramp and 1
would have an uneasiness in my legs
and occasional pains in the loins.
"I was dizzy in spells and short of
breath. If I ate a hearty meal 1
would have a pain in my leit side.
My appetite would sometimes be
very good and sometimes I couldn't
eat anything.
"I had a constant soreness and
tenderness over the spine and tired
feeling in the region of my kidneys.
T suffered quite a little with a
dragging heavy feeling across the
"Dodd's Kidney Dills were recommended to me by a friend of mine
who had been cured, and 1 began to
use them.
"Almost from tlie start I began to
feel tho wonderful improvement,
which continued as the treatment
proceeded, till the unpleasant symptoms had one by one entirely disappeared .
"Dodd's Kidney Dills have worked
a _wonderful cure in my case and I
cannot speak too highly of this
great and good remedy."
What Dodd's Kidney Pills have
done sfor Mr. Charrand they have
done for thousands of others, and
they'll do the same for you if you
give them a chance.
There are many railway men in
Canada to-day who find Dodd's Kidney Dills Indispensable. They are the
railway man's surest and best lYicnd.
The constant vibration on trains
and engines is very hard on the kidneys and Dodd's Kidney Dills make

The following correspondence, ending In true Irish fashion, actually
passed between two men in England
some years ago :
"Mr. Thompson presents his compliments to Mr. Simpson, and begs
to request that he will keep his doggs
from  trespassing on his grounds."
"Mr. Simpson presents his compliments to Mr. Thompson and begs to
suggest that in future he should not
spell 'dogs' with two gee*3."
"Mr. Thompson's respects to Mr.
Simpson nnd will feel obliged if he
will ndsi the letter 'e' to the last
word in the note just received, so as
to represent Mr. Simpson and lady."
"Mr. Simpson returns Mr. Thompson's note unopened, the impertinence it contains being only equalled
by its vulgarity."

Quinine Wine, wben obtainable in a sound,
unadulterated state, a remedy for many and
grievous ills. By its gradual and judicious
use the frailest systems are led into convalescence and strength by the influence which
Quinine exerts on nature's own restoratives.
It relieves the drooping spirits of those with
whom a chionio state of morbid despondency and lack of interest in life is a disease,
and, by tranquilizing the nerves, disposes to
sound and refreshing sleep—imparts vigor
to the "ction of the blood, which, being
el insulated, courses throughout the veins,
strengthening tho healthy animal functions
of the system, thereby making activity a
necessary result, strengthening the frame,
and giving life to tho digestive organs, which

bill applicable immediately upon the
dissolution ofthe house.
The Dominion government* lu s
made a pronounced move in thcrigln
direction, in that it has introduced
legislation compelling the arbitration
of all disputes on railways between
employers and employees, thereby
ensuring immunity from interruption

prists mentioned are in keeping with
the newly awakened public spirit in
panadas to develope the natural re-
sources  and  conserve  tho benefits
therefrom for Canadians.   It is well
that it should be so. but the one big
