This is tlie hardest time of the yeur to cuter to one's
appetite. Cooking over a hot stove does not help it
any, so to avoid this discomfort and have something
palateable, try some* of our Meats, ready cooked:
koAST MUTTON,  ROAST BEEP,  VEAL LOAF,  CHICKEN.
TONGUE, TURKEY.
Then for f-omething nice in Tnble Fruit, try a tin of
Pineapple, one of the nicest fruits for thr. hot weather.

There were no absentees from lust
Monday evening's meeting of the city
council.
At tlm outset Aid. Arnot moved the
amendment of lust week's minutes by
striking oul tho clause, regarding the
appointment of city clerk, "and such
other duties as the council may see fit
to request hiin to perforin." lie stated
the clerk objected to tlmt clause and
asked ti) have it expunged.
Aid. Teeter and McNeish did not
quite see tho point, ns thev thought
tne clerk was to perform all the duties
of tbe city.
It was explained the motion of appointment enumerated all the offices
lie was called on to perform, and he
objected to being callsM on to do street
work.
Aid. Worden seconded the motion
and it carried.
Correspondenceread! From the city
solicitor, advising that tke city was
liable for keep of prisoner committed
under small debts court.
Aid. McNeish held that tke council
may be compelled to pay the bill, but
he did not think it right.
Aid. Arnot said the bill had Iwn
sent in merely to prove liability of the
proper persons to pay. II** believed
the party i.uiu:- sliould pa"" the bill,
City Solicitor Joraud.bemg present,
said he had gone inti the case thoroughly, and as the commitment «•"**•
in the interests cf justice, tbe city
was thorefore liable. The prisoner
had been committed for contempt aa...
u.it for not paying his d -lit *.
A discussion followed, in which fi

It was a dull day for bulldogs,  ruffs,
whose bull baiting ancestors bad bequeathed bim a love of adventure, sat
on tlie veranda of the villa and
yawned.
A Rrs?eu automobile rolled along the
driveway of the bouse. When it stopped at the veranda, a pretty, brown
haired girl of twenty laughingly greeted her enthusiastic friend, who leaped
upon her, regardless of tbo damage
whish dirty paws inflicted on a white
Bfirge dress.
"One would think I bud been away a
year instead of n week," the girl said
Bayly. j
'■Is it only a week since I first met !
you?" replied ber companion,  "I seem
to have known you always."
Florence Hastings' face became serious as she putted the wriggling I'iiITs.
"1 am afraid your Imagination is over- ;
powerful, Mr. Oakley," she said. "Any- ;
way, you've saved uie a  dismal  railway journey from tbe N'ewlons'.   I was '.
glad to let my trunks take lt alone.  So,
whatever your condition of mind, you
must come lu and meet papa."
"Is he at home?*'
"He comes ou tbe 5 o'clock  'relief ;
express.'    That's  what  lie  calls  uny
train which takes bim away from Wall
street."
"He leaves his ollice at 4?"
"Yes.   Do you hesitate at the ordeal
of passing the interval with nie'r" Florence was smiling again.
Porter Oakley laughed protesting!"*,
"I was hesitating because of an important business affair," tie said anally.
"Is there a telegraph ollice iu the village?"
"There Is, aud 1 will send a groom
with your message."
Oakley looked at his watch. "Quarter of 3," he murmured. "Will you
pardon me If I go to tbe office In thc
automobile?" be asked. "It will save
fifteen valuable minutes."
As the machine puffed along the
driveway Florence watched it musingly and Inwardly resented bor feeling
of relief — It seemed like weakness.
When she first met Oakley at the New-
tons' country bouse, sbe vaguely dls-
liksnl him. As she watched the automobile speeding toward the village
she thought of Trilby and smiled.
Then she grew serious and felt sorry
that sho had asked Oakley to stay, but
she knew tbat If tbe little scene near
the veranda were to be reacted she
would ask him again.
"Do you believe in hypnotic influence. Puffs?" slu* said softly, putting
an arm uround the bulldog's muscular
neck.
Puffs did not. Every line In his
sturdy figure expressed disbelief. Then
he conveyed sympathy and encouragement by extending a few Inches saf
damp pink tongue toward bis mistress'
cheek.
Tbat evening Florence sat on the
veranda with Porter Oakley. Her father did not arrive on the "relief ex*
press," nor bad word come from bim.
Oakley bad waited for the older nmn,
bail accepted an Invitation t'i dine, and
now he sat with Floren e and watched
the moon creep toward ths. Orange
mountains.
"There Is still an hour or so of moonlight, aud I sball have a bright road
to New York," he said.
"I tbougbt father would surely be
here on the 8 o'clock train," paid Florence.
Oakley held tbe face of bis watch to
his cigar tii).    "Half past 8 now," he
answered.   "When does the next train
arrive?"
"At 0."
"Your father may be on that. Why
don't you run down to the station with
uu* and meet bim?" Oakley snid.
Florence looked up at bim quickly.
"Why, I-I"— she began, but Oakley
was leaning toward her, the mo mllght
shining on bis face and lighting bis
gray eyes, which were fixed on hers,
Five minutes later the automobile
was running nlong the country road,
containing one uneasy and one triumphant person und followed by a
white, four legged creature whose under jaw protruded at the ancle of determination und who patiently blinked
nway tbe dust aroused by tbe (lying
monster In front
The hands of thc little red faced
clock ln the tower of the station pointed to n quarter of tbe hour, and they
passed on, Oakley saying that they
would have five minutes of speeding
before returning to wait for tho train.
Tbe lights of the village dl inppean d,
ond tho moon was bidden by tlie overhanging trees of the raid along wblcb
tbey   Hew.     Puffs   stretched   his   legs
and galloped bis hardest Tin* machine
drew rapidly away from blm, but he
followed, with the perseverance of his

of road,
Oakley consulted bis watch. "After

can't meet your father now. Shan't
we keep on?"
"I prefer to go home," Florence replied coldly.
Oakley leaned over thc steering lever
as the machine sped on Its way. Then
he turned and his eyes met Florence's,
"I am the chauffeur," he said quietly.
Florence looked steadily at bim. I'or*
ter Oakley returned lu'r gaze, but the
trilling power that hnd made her forget conventionalities was dissipated by
the honest wrath which glowed In tbo
girl's eyes.
"Mr. Oakley, will you turn back'/"
sbe said sharply.
"'Miss Hastings*, we are not going
back." Oakley replied mockingly.
"What slu you niciiu:"
"1 mean that 1 have known and

takes less than a Week for tne to get
anything I want. You will go home,
but it will be tomorrow—and it will

"Tbls was our plan: Some years ago .

Oakley seized ber arm, but she strug-   llK^-OOO-OO-OO^dl-
gled. His grasp on tbe steering lever
became unsteady, the machine swerved
violently, and be gradually brought it
to a standstill at the side of the road.
Florence jumped to the ground and
started toward home, but Oakley
placed himself ln her way.
"You shall not go back." be said. "If
you won't go on, we can stay in this
lonely place, and in the morning, when
it is known that you have passed tbe
night with me, you may be more willing to accept my proposals."
Florence stopped and faced Oakley.
Her hands were clinched, but sbe was
trembling pitiably, lie smiled aud
came toward ber.
"Come, now. Marriage is easy In
New Jersey," be said. "We can go"—
A white, panting form shot from tho
road nnd came lietween them. Florence threw herself on tbe ground,
clasped ber arms uround a muscular
neck aud sobbed: "Thank God, you
bave come, ruffs! Thank Ood, you
have come!"
Oakley drew back. He was not smiling. "You don't think I shall let a dog
Interfere with my plans, do you?" he
asked.
He stepped to the nutomobile, placed
bis band under the scat, and when he
withdrew it it held a glittering object
Florence gave a low cry, and a white
streak flew from tbe road. The next
instant Oakley was kneeling on the
ground, Puffs' teeth were firmly hold-
lug his wrist, nnd tbe useless weapon
was lying in tbe dust.
Florence looked at him helplessly;
then her eyes brightened, "Come,
Puffs, we shall go home," she said,
"and he will take us."
Half an hour later a green automobile drew slowly up the driveway of
the Hastings country house. Seated in
it were a young woman and a sullen
looking num. Between them, with his
back to tbe girl and his eyes lixetl on
tbe man, was a stolid and dusty lwill-
dog.
When Mr. Hastings arrived on tbe
11 o'clock train, he found bis daughter
In a subdued mood.
"What is the meaning of this?" he
asked, waving a telegram before ber.
Florence took the paper and read:
Meet ir.e at thc uptown ferry, 10 o'clock
toi.Ight. FLORENCE.
"This is why you stayed In the city,"
sb'* said slowly. Then, ns she realized
the meaning of the message, "It must
have been Mr. Oakley's Important business."
When Mr. Hustings had recovered a
degree of equanimity after the story
of the automobile, he looked fondly at
Puffs.
"I'll buy one of those machines some
day," be said, gravely extending his
hand, into which a responsive paw was
placed; "and wben I do I shan't have
to look far for a chauffeur."
Vcrj- Old  ehnreh.
The Chnrcb of San Miguel, at Santa
Fe. is claimed by New Mexicans to be
the oldest In the l'nited States. There
is much dispute over the exact date of
its erection, but it was certainly built
be'.ween 200 and .'00 years ago by the
fifi-t Indian converts under the direc
tion of the Spanish padres—some say
ns long ago as 1545, Insisle it is like a
vault, blnck and crumbling, with
cracked adobe walls and roof, and a
gallery whose woodwork still shows
traces of the figures painted there by
the Indians, designs like those tbey put
upon their pottery today.
But tbe most Interesting thing In San
Miguel is the old bell, St. Joseph.
Black with age, it looks like a mass of
old iron In its dim recesses. But strike
It, and it gives forth a mellow note of
silvery clearness, echoing with marvelous sweetness through tbe vnultlike
old church. The quality of tbe bell
niB'tal make:; tbe richness of the note,
nmi there is a tradition that it was
made of the gold and silver ornaments
of iho Spanish as n thank ottering for
a victory over tlie Moors.
At any rate, the old Spanish padres
brought the bell, already ancient,
across the seas from Spain and over
mountains and plateaus from Mexico.
The Moors uro gone, Spain's great empire of the west has vanished, and still
the old bell mauda tbere, older than
American civilization.
Thr Fun In Illtstory.
As in a mirror, the fan, the origin of
which ls lost in the twilight of oriental
legend, reflects tbe habits, customs, art
nud taste of every country which has
made a friend of an artldle so useful
nnd ornamental. Greece was the lirst
European country to adopt the fan-
two birds' wings-one of Its uss-s being
by acolytes in the temples to drive
nway the flics from tbe sacrifice. It
served the early Christians in tbe catacombs a similar purpose when the
bread and wine were spread for tbo
sacrament, a custom Which lasted In
the Roman Catholic cburcb to the fourteenth century.
In this same century the fan made
an almost simultaneous appearance
throughout Italy end France, in England and Spain. Its most artistic flights
bave been achieved In France, but not
even to France will Spain yield in its
use of the fan as "an important weapon in tbe mimic warfare of coquetry
nnd flirtation." Whether the Spanish
lady Is In church or a place of amusement, whether visiting or walking, It
ls always ln her bands, frequently
portraying the honors ol Ilie bullfight
Corresponding with these, certain
French revolution funs represent Charlotte Corday carrying a dagger in one

The Rev. Charles Aloysius Hall
would scarcely have been taken for a
minister of the gospel ns he sat in the
corner of a downtown hotel that
morning, Intent ou the columns of a
time table. There was uo "Prince Albert," no high hat, no clerical collar, no
high buttoned vest. His clothes, of not
tho latest cut, yet carefully brushed
and pressed, would have stamped him
a young business man, and nfter a
glance at his face—a firm, clean shaven
face, with thc brows at that moment
knit in a frown—one would have said
that business was not all the gentleman in question could have wished lt.
It was a favorite remark of tbe Rev.
Mr. Hall tbat if his dally life and
deeds gave no Inkling to his profession
tho symbols of tbe cloth never would.
For the first time In the long fight the
Rev. Charles Hnll was discouraged.
He realized that now Indeed the church
at Ccdarvllle, bis church, was lu tbe
last ditch. The roof leaked and that
cracked tbe plastering, the carpet was
ln tatters, the paint was losing faith ln
the clapboards and tho spire was so
badly out of plumb that the town
board had threatened to take lt down
unless lt wns given prompt attention.
Some subscription papers, circulated
through the town, had netted returns
pitifully small. The envelope weekly
offering system had been woefully inadequate to cover the pastor's salary,
and the Ladles' Aid society, with
three suppers and a fair, had raised
just $08.37. He smiled grimly as he remembered that last year his salary
had been $200 short and this year bade
fair to be another hundred shorter.       i
There had remained yet one hope.
Cedarville was quite a summer resort,
and during the hot months numerous
well to do men from the neighboring
city stayed there with their families. ,
Some of these nttended the church.
As a last resort Rev. Mr. Hall had come
to the city to make personal appeul to
these  men.    But  Brother Jones  and j
Brother  Hayes  aud   Brother  Benton i
had other channels for their currency, I
and when Hall, weary and heartsick,
sat down in the corridor of tbe hotel, :
ho had raised but $20 In cash, with .
pledges of perhaps $3S more.
He had opened bis time table again
when some one touched bis shoulder.
"Oh, I say, Bplder," said a voice in j
deprecation,   "this   isn't   just  square,
you know.   We've been hunting high
and low for you.   Why didu't you scud |
us word?"
Hall looked up. Two young fellows,
evidently college men, stood before
bim.
"Were you aildressing me?" said
Hall.
"That's pretty good," said the other
young man. "You're funny when you
hnvo a try at dignity, old boy."
'There's no use mincing matters,"
sai'l No. 1. "If you're going to back
down, we want the deposit back; that's
all."
"Gentlemen," said Hall curtly, "I'll
givo your seeming Impertinence tbe
benefit of the doubt. Ihere Is evidently some mistake bere."
"Oh, ring off; ring off!" said tbe first
speaker wearily. "You've led us enough
of a chase already."
"See here," said Hall, rising angrily;
"I've no IntentiiAii"—
"Have you the nerve to say you're
not Spider Median?" said No. 2 while
be favored bis companion with a pon
derous wink.
"Most certainly I'm not," said Hall.
"Would you mind letting ns ss*e your
left forearm?" saiil So. 1. with tbe air
of a man who has trumped the trick.
"Certainly not," said Hall, with some
asperity, "If It will be a means of convincing you."
He bared his left forearm, and the
twsi bent over It critically.
"Ry Qeorgel Ths're aren't any tnttsso
marks here," said the shorter of the
pair. "We owe you every apology,
sir, for a very stupid blunder. Will
you join us?" He nodded toward a
pair of swinging doors from behind
which the dink of glusscs was plainly
audible.
"No, thank you," said Hall shortly
nud turned again to his time table.
Again be felt tbe touch ou bis shoulder.
"We don't mean to intrude," said a
respectful voice.
Hall looked up and found the young
fellows again before hlm.
"Well?" he said.
"You see," began the taller chap,
"we're in the deuce of a fix. nnd we
thought perhaps—bare chance, you
know—you might care to help us out
and Incidentally make a neat bit out
of it There's several hundred lu lt
for some one."
Hall thought of the church nnd his
morning's work for the $'',s.
"I'm certainly open to suggestions,"
be said, smiling grimly.
"Can you box?" said his Interlocutor.
Hall's face wore a puzzled expression at the inquiry. "1 havo In years
past," be admitted.
"Oood:" said tho other. "If we can
come to terms, yon are the very man
we need just at present. This gentleman is Mr. Burns. I am Robert
Dix.
"Ymi see." nix continued, "at the
gym there Is n trainer called Hefty
Burke, He's put out every man In college wlm has had the courage to give
him a go, by virtue of which Mr.
Burke has begun to think himself the

make very much difference when yon

Hall was thinking deeply.  "For the
church!   For the cburcb!" ran through
his head.
"Gentlemen,"  said he,  "Spider  McGaun pro tetn. Is at your service."
"You're a brick!" said Dix, wringing •
Hall's bund.    "Meet us here at 5, nnsi I
we can talk it over at dinner.   And"—
Bailing In bis pocket—"here's fifty to '

At Ts Hall was pacing the corridor,
when Burns and Dix came In.   After !
dinner, at which Hall was given many
valuable points as to Hetty's style of !
boxing,  tbe three entered a   cab  ami
were driven rapidly to the Macedonian
club.
It wus precisely 8 o'clock when the

The International Congress for Ap-
plii'd Chemistry held u second plenary silting in Uorlln recently, during
which Sir William Crookes dollvored
an udilress entitled "Msuluru Views
on Matter; 'J'ho ileali/.ulion of a
Dream " The lecturer saiti thut for
nearly u contury men of science luul
bwn dri'itming of atoms, molecules,
and ultraiiiuudanu particles, und luul
been speculating as to tho origin of
mutter. Tiny luul now got so far us
to admit tho possibility of resolving
tho chomlcal oloiuouts Into simpler
forms of matter, or even of refining
thorn awuy altogothor Into ethereal
vibrations or electrical energy,
Sir William Crookes then    gave   a
brief account of some Investigations
bearing on  the    constitution of matter und    Uie possibility of dissociating the chemical elements.      lie   remarked    that a   number of isolated
hypotheses    as to     the    existence of
ninl ier iii iiii ultra-gaseous state, tho
oxiBtenco of material particles smaller Hum  atoms,  the existence of electrical atoms or electrons,    tho    constitution of Iloentgon rays and their
passage through opaque bodies,    the
emanations from uranium,    and   tho
dissociation    of the    elements    wire
now    welded    Into   one harmonious
theory  by  I lie discovery of    radium.
After paying a high tribute    to   tho
labors of M, und Mmo,  Curia and "M.
Bemont,    ho   proceeded to    describe
soiiiii of the characteristic of radium.
He snid thai   ihe  most   striking property  of radium  wus  its     power    to
scud forth torrents of emanations. A
convenient method of observing these
OmanatiOUS was to fit a blende screen
at thu end of a brass   tube   with  a
speck of radium salt in front   about
a  millimeter ofl  ond to have a    Ions
nt the other end.     The   emanations
could  then be observed in  tho    form
of  scintillations   on   tho  screen.      In
conclusion, Sir William Crookes    remarked With regard to this and other experiments:
"Indulging in a 'scientific use of the
imagination' and pushing the hypothesis of tho electronic constitution
of matter to what 1 consider its logical limit, we muy be in fact witnessing a spontaneous dissoeiution of
radium—and we bi'gin to doubt the
permanent stability of mutter. The
Cliemical atom may bo actually suffering u catabollc transformation,
but ut so slow a rato that, supposing a million atoms Ily off every
Second, it would take a century for
its weight to diminish by one milligramme
"It must never be forgotten thnt
theories are only useful so long us
thoy admit of the harmonious correlation of facts into a reasonable system. Directly a fart refuses to be
pigeon-holed und will not be explained on theorotic grounds, tho theory
must go nr it must be revised to
admit the new 1'n.i-t. The nineteenth
century saw the birth of now views
of atoms, electricity, and other. Our
views to-day of the constitution of
mutter may appear satisfactory to
us. but how will it be at. lli" closo
of the twentieth century? An* we not
incessantly learning the lesson that
our researches have only a provisional value? A hundred yeurs hence
shall we acquiesce in the resolution
of tho material universe Into a swarm
of rushing electrons?
"This fatal quality of atomic slis-
sociation appears to be universal,
und operates whenever we brush a
pi.ro of gloss with silk: it works In
tho sunshine and raindrops, and In
ile.' lightnings and flame; it prevails
In the waterfall and the stormy sen.
And although the whole range of
human experience is all too short to
afiord a parallax whereby the date
of the extinction of matter ran be
calculated, 'protyle,' tho 'formless
mist,' onee again mny reign supnsp.o
and the hour-hand of eternity will
have Completed one revolution."—

Mere wear in a shoe is comparatively
easy—plowman's hobnailed brogans to wit.
Foot comfortu as exemplified in your
easy going house slippers, does not imply
either beauty, shape retention or street-wear
durability.
Yet wear in a brogan and comfort in
a slipper are secured by a modicum of shoe
making skilL
But to produce a shoe of wear, oi
comfort, of beauty and then to challenge
public criticism under the limelight rays of
advertising requires art, shoe making art—
not the art which hides by cleverly concealing defects but the art which assembles in
thc shoe -ill the elements of wear, of foot
comfort, of shape retention and shoe beauty.
' iSuch shoe art the M Slater Shoe"'1
makers are compelled, by advertising, to
impart to the " Slater Shoe."
That's why the man or woman who
buys and wears a "Slater Shoe "is assured
c! all he or she has right to expect in a high-
grade shoe bearing upon it the stamp of the
maker's responsibility as does
