Aunt Sarah Bobee, after whose father Bebee's Corners had been named,
was a widow puat fifty tbe day n
sporty looking man drove up to her
farmhouse in a fancy rig'nnd wanted
to arrange with her to cover tbe front
of her barn with circus pictures.
"Why, bless your heart, I never went
to a circus in nil uiy life!" she exclaimed in reply.
"But you are uot too old to begin,"
he suggested. "Let ine put the pictures up, and I'll leave you teu tickets
of admission. You can go and take all
your friends."
"Land o' massy, but you dou't know
Bebee's Corners! Everybody around
here Is a Methodist or Baptist or Presbyterian—everybody but me—and they
won't even attend camp meeting if
lemonade ls to be sold on the grounds.
I don't exactly know what my religion
ts, but If I went to a circus nobody
Would ever speak to uie again."
The circus man wanted his bills on
thnt barn, nnd he argued and reasoned
for half an hour. lie saw that Aunt
Sarah was an Independent character
and that If he could get her started
she'd be ready to defy public opinion.
The result was that she finally saisl:
"Well, go ahead with your pictures.
I never saw nu elephant or lion or tiger
In my life, and I'll go and see the
menagerie part anyhow. There '11 be
an awful row around bere, and folks
will think that Sntnu has got hold of
me, but I'll have to stand it."
The pictures wero hardly up when
Deacon Danforth happened along the
highway nnd saw them. lie turned
pale and trembled. Not in twenty years
before had a barn on the Red Mill road
been thus defiled. When he had recovered a little from the shock, ho walked
to the house and confronted the widow. Kor the first fifteen minutes the
conversation wns devoted to Satan,
hiiiies, Lot's wife, Judas Iscnriot and
siiliiT interesting subjects. But It gradually tapered off to hyenas, boa constrictors and alligators, and the deacon
was almost smiling when he left the
house.
Next day Deacon Bidwell saw those
pictures as he sat in his buggy behind
bis old white horse. The horse saw
them before he did and stopped so suddenly thut the deacon was pitched
against the dashboard. For a long
minute the good old man thought his
eyes deceived him, but the true state
of affairs finally dawned upon him,
and he groaned and sighed and drove
up to the widow's gate.
"Wldder Behee, havo you sold your
llvin' soul to Satan?" was his greeting,
and then the fur flow. It was neatly
tat hour before he left the hous". but
he wasn't Rlghlng and groaning as lie
went. On tbe contrary, he looked rather cheerful, and he called bask from
the gate:
"Yes; I s'pose there '11 be camels
there with two humps, mebbe witli
three, and they'll be wuth lookin' at."
There was one more deacon In the
neighborhood, Deacon Burton. He was
driving to town to get a pitchfork
mended nnd was humming the air of
"I Want to Be an Angel" when lhe
col'ired posters suddenly confronted
him. There were short skirted, long
legged damsels poised on barebacked

"I wouldn't 'a' believed it, widder—I
wouldn't 'a' believed It!" he began as
he entered the house. "It's the awfnlest

"No, I dou't 'spose it's nny more

There were others besides tlie den*
cons. There was old Mrs. Gaynor, lor
Instance. She wasn't exactly u zealot,
but she never took a dozen eggs to
market without asking Heaven to bless
them and make the price 11 cents a
dozen. She wasn't a bigot, but she
contended that her own brand of iv
llgion was the only one to lie saved
by. She wasn't narrow minded, but
when she heard of those circus posters
She went dowu to see Aunt Sarah and
to say:
"I've Just stepped ln a mlnlt to say
that If you go to that circus I can't
never let you enter my doors ag'ln."
Aunt Sarah started in to nrgits*. but
Old Mrs. Gaynor was on her guard
against the wiles of Satan and
wouldn't wait for farther tall;.
The day of the circus arrived, nnd
the widow drove into Medina to attend it. Kor some reason not to be explained a dozen farmers around her
had business In town that day and
made un early start—some of theni before daylight Some of them also lin
gered and drove home nfter dark.
It was all over the neighborhood that
Aunt Sarah defied public opinion, and
It was old Mrs. Gaynor who determined to bring her to book. She went

should remember that colleges were
first founded in tlio early middle ages I
' to  teach   the  classics  to  prospective j

at n time when these languages were

Just coming into use In Europe, north
| and south, had ln them neither litem*

Colleges so begun became the fashion.
Every college man was a classical man,
and  naturally  then,  as now,  a   man
would feel that his own college culture
wa:i the right one.   It sum became a
common saying that the only education worthy of tlie name was Greek
nnd Latin. But now modern languages

Scottish shrewdness is occasionally
overmatched by Irish wit. The handful of people who inhabit a certain
little island ill the Atlantic, off the
coast of Donegal, enjoy so much health
and bo little wealth that there is no
doctor on the spot. In rare coses,of
em rgency a physician is brought in a
boa I from the nearest village on the
mainland.
On one occasion somo Islanders who
were obliged to summon the doctor
found that he had gone to Dublin on
bu- Iness. As the case wns urgent, they
lnv iked the services of another practitioner. This gentleman was n Scotsman, with the proverbial cannines; of
Ids race, and he declined to undertake
the voyage unless he received his fee,
a golden sovereign, ln advance.
There wns no help for it. nnd the
money was paid. The physician went
to the Island and attended to the case.
But when he Inquired for a boat to
taka* bim nway he found that not a
boatman on tbe Island would ferry
him back again I'or any less consider., -
tion than £J, paid in'advance.
The doctor had to part with tho money and to admit that be hnd been beaten at bis owu game.

Ever since they had come to Perkins-
ville De lVysts't- and his mother had
failed to adjust their respective standpoints ton mutual harmony.
To begin with, It was spring. With
the delicious odor of resinous smoke
from the boughs that hud banked the
house assailing one's nostrils, who
could resist joining the dancing silhouettes that circled the bonfire and
daring one's fate by leaping across it
ln swaggering competition as the
flames died down?
But she drew lurid pictures of bis
certain fate if he should repeat the of
tense. Blind defiance rose Insurgent
Within hlm-lie would go! And then
nil of a sudden be remembered what
his father said and hung his head to
think how those grave, kind eyes of
his wouisl look at blm now.
"Take good care of mamma," he bad
said at the last. "You must, be bor big
brother and never let her worry about
you, she's so little and delicate." And
then he had whispered over two or
three times, "My pretty little wife—my
dear little girl!"
And De Peyster had tried with all
his might to remember. But often it
did seem ns If it would have been a
little easier if she could have understood that one was disgraced if one
did not keep neck nnd neck with "the
other fellows" In every prank they
played.
There was a long nnd weary period
of door-yard discipline after tbis episode. There wen. a good many times
when De Peyster had to clinch his
fists as tight as he could and remember his father very hard.
By and by June came, quivering with
gold green sunlight, perfumed witli a
universal blossoming and pungent with
the joy of living. At this time every
true boy thrills with the half realized
rapture of it all and finds the fullest
expression of his ecstasy In going
swimming.
Every bright morning In some part
of tho town there was sure to be a
group of boys toeing a line, their necks
bobbing eagerly forward and their bodies giving anticipatory jerks nnd
twitches ns they waited for the word.
When the leader said "Go!" they darted forth, and there was a kaleidoscopic and dissolving view of h'gs racing
madly down a side street that led to
the river. Then collars came off, coats
followed, as they ran with undiminished speed, the fellow who was farthest ahead sometimes slowing up with
magnificent daring to get off his shoes
and stockings while the others were
still hampered by shirts and trousers,
and by the time they tumbled In lia-ad-
long competition over the bank the
nimblest carried their entire wardrobe
on their arms and flashed wbitely Into
the water while the laggcrs fumbled
at their shoe lacings. The unfortunate
who popped Into the river, flushed and
panting, after all the rest were in was
greeted with taunting cries of: "Lubber last!   Lubber last!"
De Peyster had never been told not
to go in swimming. It had not occurred to his mother as among the list of
his possible perils, as she was in blissful Ignorance of the fact that "the other fellows" did it.
So it was witb the thrilling exult
ance of the Greek runner that he set
his toe on the line with the rest and
hurled himself forward, head up and
elbows in.
The first few rods it felt liko flying.
His feot scarcely seemed to touch the
ground. Then a pair of legs Bashed by
him, and another and another. He
gathered his strength und shot forward again, but another pair of legs
went by, and another and another.
They were teariug off their coats;
thoy were stripping off their shirts.
He felt nt his collar, wrenched it off
and flung it nway, to have both hands
free for his coat and shirt. They were
almost at the bank now. lie could seo
Mi.ky Daly's white skin dazzle In the
sun as be took a splendid dive ahead
of the rest. His own feet were crowing heavy, and there was a ml"*, before bis eyes. The knot In his -hoe
lacing would not coins* untied. A Ravage rage tilled him, If he could have
cut off his foot to rid himself of the
ha tap.'ring   shoe,   he   would   scarcely
have hesitated.   You were ruled out if
you went into the water with anything
left on. As he struggled and perspired and agoni/ed the two or three
whom he hail distanced leaped past
blm, and as ho shook the shoe off at
last and made his dive he heard tho
air ringing with, "Lubber last! Lubber last." and slowly realised that lt
was nii-ant for him.
He tried manfully two or three other
days, but It was nlways the same wny.
Ills muscles were flabby from tho door-
yard discipline, nnd ho could not pick
up in a few Weeks what the others had
acquired through joyous years of summer vagabondage.
He took It quietly nnd good natured*
ly, but it went deep.
His mother found out the custom
shortly and forbade him to go near the
water.
As for De Peyster himself, the numbness of despair settled upon him. Now
he could uever learn to redeem himself, to have some day perhaps Uie Ineffable joy of being the first lu, ahead
of Jimmy Spratt, ahead of Micky Daly,
ahead of everybody. Ills career was
ended before It had begun.
"But 1 put to not let her worry,"
was the rueful conclusion lie always
reached. And then he breathed bard
nnd winked fast.
Jimmy was his constant friend ond
brought hlm alleviating messages from
time to time, such as that the other
fellers all said he had lots of sand and
could do as well a:, tbe next feller if he
had halt'a chain e.
When even these encouraging remarks ceased to comfort, he gave him
his own horned toad as u last desper
uie resort. The effect was wonderfully
efficacious, but transitory.
"I'd oughter been a girl," said De
Peyster many times to himself, "but 1
wish she didn't want to make believe I
nm one when 1 ain't."
This was the neurest to a reproach
that he allowed his loyal little heart to
entertain, but a bullied, unchlldllkQ
look grew in his eyes as he watched
his mates go off without hlm day alter
day.
In July a light epidemic of scarlet
fever prevailed. The oldest Inhabitants culled it "walking scarlatina," the
Illness was so slight.
Mrs. Van Voort kept D« Peyster ln
the house.
One day De Peyster caught lt.
Ile regarded it rather In the nature
of a festal occurrence thau otherwise,
for all the boys who had had It enme
up to see him, and, although they were
not allowed to stand long, It cheered
him amazingly to hear what thoy were
doing, for he hail constantly the hope,
that these new delights they told of
one after another would not be on the
forbidden list when he was out again.
But after awhile he did not seem to
care whether they caine or not and
one day When told that Micky Daly
waited below said languidly, "1 guess
I don't care about seeing hlm just now
-I'm sorter tired—but tell hlm lt Ml be
bully to have hlm come tomorrow."
But when tomorrow came no oue
was admitted, for lie was tossing about
in a weakening struggle with something he did not understand that
those who watched by him realized
only too well.
He heard a voice as if from very far
away:
"You'd better tell him, doctor," It
saiil. "I cnn't Stand It to see him fight
for his life like a little Trojan when it
Isn't any use."
The voice broke and then went on:
"He's a bravo little chap, brave
enough to face anything, and It Isn't
treating him square not to let hiin say
goodby."
I le Peyster opened his eyes. The ductal' was standing over bim.
"You don't have to tell me," said
lie Peyster, fsir he dimly saw thut the
oid doctor's lips were quivering. "I—
1 guess—I know."
lie felt for his mother's hand.
"I'd like to hear you sing just once
lir; i. mamsic," he said.
"There's a bully song one of the fellers taught me, 'One Wide Blver.' I've
liked It specially much since—since it
ivorried you to have me go In swimming."
iiis mother sobbed out a few lines,
faltered ami stopi ed.
A look of patient disappointment
came over his face.
"Never mind, mamsle, you needn't,"
he gasped. "I'm going to sa'e it. ymi
know, so it doesn't matter. Won't the
cool water feel good, though! And
don't you worry, niamsio. Who's
afraid?   Father '11 find mi'!"
He lay quite still a moment; then lie
whispered:
"I would 'a' liked to try one more run
with the fellers-Micky Daly was most
always ahead lie's a peach sprinter.
You tell him and Jimmy nnd the other
fellers about—about nie and the wide
river. Tell 'em this time I- I ain't
lubber last!"
And he slipped away to find that unknown river, the bravest of little pioneers.
What Ws-itrlril  Blm,
A friend once nsked an aged man
what caused blm to complain so often
nt eventide of pain ami weariness.
"Alas," replied he. "I have every day
so much to do. I have two falcons to
tame, two hares to keep from running
away, two hawks to manage, a serpent to confine, a lion to chain and a
sick man to tend and wait upon."
"Well, well," commented his friend,
"you are busy Indeed! But 1 didn't
know that you had anything to do with
a menagerie, How, then, do you make
that out?"
"Why," continued the old man, "listen. Two falcons are my eyes, which
I must guard diligently; the two hares
nre my feet, whieh I must keep from
walking In the ways of sin; tin' two
hawks are my hands, whieh I must
train to work, that I may provide for
myself and those dependent on nie us
well as for a needy friend occasionally;
the serpent Is my tongue, which I must
keep ever bridled lost it speak unseemly; the lion Is my heart, witli whieh I
have a continual light lest evil tilings
come out of it, and the sick man is my
whole body, which Is always needing
my watchfulness and care. All tliis
daily wears out niy sl length."

Some years ago there enme to an

native tongue. When he had been here
several months and had secured a moderate number of pupils, ho went one
day to the mother of one of them and
to her great surprise asked for her
daughter's hand in marriage.
"But, my denr sir," said she, "my
daughter has no fortune."
The suitor smiled upon her ln nn expansive generosity.
"Me, too!" snld he reassuringly.
"And, although we are nol rich, we
have thus far been able to give her
every comfort. She is indeed used to
luxury."
"Me, tool" was the smiling rejoinder.
"But, Ilerr von Blitz, she will never
be able to manage affairs."
"Me, too!" rejoiced the lover.
"And I feel obliged t„ tell you that

"Well, sir," sold Thonuis, "I should

The dork: smiled. Thomas might
manage horses, but workingnien—that
was a different matter,
"Perhaps you'll think It over and let
me know your method," he finally suggested.
Thomas promised nnd, being appealed to a few days later, wus ready with
his "method."
"And you think you have hit on a
plan to get workingnien to church,
Thomas?"
"I think so, sir."
"And how would you?"

| Montreal, July 20—(Special).—The
case ol George Robertson, of 392
James street, this city, ls looked
upon by thoso interested in medical
matters as one of the most interesting os*. record. Mr. Robertson was a
sufferer from Dropsy, and was so bad
that tapping was resorted to. Dodd's
Kidney Pills cured him.
i Interviewed regarding his cure, Mr.
Robertson said: "I was troubled
with UropBy and Uhoumatism for
five years. I was a total wreck before I started to use Dodd's Kidney
Pills. Before I got out of bod ln the
morning I could hardly put ray feet
on the floor, they were swollen so
much from Uropsy.
"My arms used to swell at times,
bo that I could not put my coat on.
Before I had taken two boxefl of
Dodd's Kidney Pills I felt greatly re-
lls.vs'd. Seven boxpfl cured me com-
pltitsuly. I also had lumbago, but
since I used Hodd's Kidney Pills I
don't know what it Ib to be sink."
Dropsy, Lumbago and Rheumatism

There can be no diseased Kidneys
when Dodd's Kidney Pilla are used.

is   practically only  ono bloodsucking
Vuinpiro Hul,  although thero    is    h

In tbis way the blood oozes slowly
from the small capillary vessels
when the Vampire Bat ai onco begins to suck and goes on sucking the
blood until its small body can contain no more.
Horses, sheep and cattle are often
served in tliis way; and es the operation apparently causes little or no
pain, tho animals are not cognisant
of what is going on; but should the
attacks bo repeated, they become
weak and thin, and finally become
wrecks.
Although this is the only hat whieh
subsists entirely on blood, it is possible that occasionally a few i>f tho
Javelin Mats may vary their ordinary
diet in this way.
Gei'sai Are Ilnrily.
Geese are extremely hard and loni»

lands which would not be suitable
(or fowls. Old pasture is best suited
to their requirements, as they crop
the grass very short and would lik,-
ly destroy the voots of newly sown

Opposition to the Chinese is no mere
idle talk with Conservatives. The
government has ruled for no Chinese
underground in coal mines, und last
week Dunsmiiii's manager was lined
for going contrary to tlie law up at
Cumberland, Duusmuir is no longer
czar.
Aa fullv expected, 11. A. Bradshaw,
postmaster of this city, has received
the Liberal nomination for the Slocan
riding. He is an upright, honest man
and deservedly popular among his
acquaintances, and may be expected
to carry the full weight of Ids party
vote. But his candidature ends right
thoro, simply because the Liberals
cannot develop the necessary strength
away from this place. The farcical
character of tlie Grit convention may
be so»n in the fact that only four
places in the riding were represented,
thore actually lieing but .seven dole-
gates present in person, with three
proxies. More judgment and less enthusiasm would hare convinced the
delegate*! from their scanty representation that their cause was hopeless.
Despite Mr. Bradshaw's nomination,
The Drill reiterates that tlie contest
in the Slocnn riding lies between the
Conservative and the Lai or candidates. Any strength-developed by thc
Liberals will tend to help tlio Tory
oaua» just that mu 'h.
ment line of railway, stretching from
tlm Atlantic to the Pacific, and failing
thnt was prepared to endorse tho
building of the line by tho (Land
Trunk Pacific from ocean to ocean,
with lilieral aid from the federal twa-
sury, provided that one-third of the
net revenue went into the Dominion
exchequer. These suggestions of his
weut unheeded. He had not. a Bingle
supporter in the cabinet, hence he
stepped down nud out."

strong objection to tho non-onforce-
inent of the pound bylaw here. Not
only are our gardens iu constant danger, but people's rest is disturbed
night after uight by the wandering
horse3 and cattle, When women are
compelled, during the absence of their
husbands in the bills, to get up and
drive away stock from their premise?,
it is little short of A disgrace. As one
of these sufferer.-,! consider the action
of the city council in allowing this
condition of affair." to exist as shameful.   Yours truly,
