Arc the Cry of the Xerves for
Better Blood.
Enrich Tho Blood and Neuralgia will
Disappear- it is Only Those Whose
Hlood is l'oor cad Watery That
Xo   pnrt   of   the   human system is
Inore sensitive than the nerves, lluny
of  the most  excruciating  pains that.
Stllict    mankind    come    irom      wi'.ik,
Bhaky,   shattered   nerves,   and   among
the nerve pains there is perhaps none
causes   more   Intense   suffering   than
aouralgia,   which   .generally   attacks
the    nerves    of    the   face   and   head,
(oinetiiiii's    causing   swift,    darting,
agonizing    pains—at    other    times    a
dull,-* heavy    aching    feeling     which
makes life miserable.    There   is   only
ononway  to get rid of neuralgia und
otlier nervous troubles,  and that is
through    the   blood.      Poor,    watery
blood  makes    the    nerves    shaky  and
invites disease.  Rich, red blood makes
tho   nerves  strong   and   banishes    all
nerve  troubles.     No   medicine   In the
world   can  equal   Dr.   Williams'   Pink
l'ills  us a  blood    builder    and    nervo
tonic;   every dose helps   to   make  rich,
red    blood,   and   every  drop  of    this
new  blood  feeds  and  st lengthens  the
nerves   and   banishes   all   nerve   aches
and    pains.    Among   those   who   oiler
strong  proof  of  this is Blr,   .John  Mc-
lK'i'mott, llond Head, Ont.,  who says:
"A   lew  years  ago,   while   Working  us
a carpenter in Buffalo, l got wet.    1
neglected to Change my eh.tins, und
next morning I aw,ike with cramps
and pains throughout my entire
body. 1 was unable to gn to work,
so called in a doctor, I lollowed his
treatment, but it did not help me.
As I was unable to wink I roturnod
to Uiy home at Bond Head. Here I
consulted a doctor, who said I was
suffering from neuralgia, but though
he treated me for some time he ulso
failed to help me. 1 had often read
of -Dr.'' Williams' Pink Pills, so decided to try them. 1 had not used more
than three boxes In-fore I felt they
were helping me. Prom that on I
gained day by day, and after I hnd
used some ten boxes I had fully recovered my old-time strength, and
have* since been able to work at my
ttede without any trouble. The pains
and aches no longer torture me and
I have gained in weight. 1 think Pr.
Williams' Pink l'ills an invaluable
medftine and shall always have a
good word to say  for theni."
Neuralgia, sciatica, rheumatism,
St. VHua dance, and the many other
blood and nerve troubles all vanish
when Dr. Williams' Pink Pills aro
used—but you must get the genuine,

If we may judge by its effects on
those who obey its command, our slung
motto, "Get there," i.s not an elevating
or ennobling one. On the contrary, it i8
brutalizing, It appeals to the lower
and tot the higher instincts in man.
Yet tliis motto is quoted all over our
land. It is demoralizing the law, it is
creeping into the pulpit, it speaks from
our schools, it looks out of tlio eyes of
tho ambitious, it undermines health,
nnd it frequently destroys all nobility
of character.
The old fashioned slow nnd sure
methods of attaining a competency are
tabooed. The man who spends half a
lifetime in making :i fortune is regarded as "slow." Short cut processes, at
any cost, ure the demand of tho hour.
From the time a boy enters school he
is goaded on by unnatural ambltlona.
He is not satisfied with steady, p<jrma*
neiit growth. Uo must progress by
leaps'and bounds, Hoys and girls tire
encouraged by their parents to gel
ahead in their classes, even If they
must burn midnight oil ami risk their
health in order to do so.
lt is pitiable to watch n typical American going to business in tho morning.
He is oot content to sit quietly and relax until tho train curries hiin to his
destination In the city. Long befori
that l.e leans forward in Ills seat and
makes ready to leap off while the train
is moving, Willi every muscle tense,
nn anxious, worried expression In his
face iiud a nervous twitching of the
hands, clutching his cano, umbrella,
parcel or the bnck of the seat In fronl
cf him, he wastes enough en rgy nml
strength beforo he reael.es his office to
execute Ihe labor of balf the day.
Tho life of lho average American Is
feverish, unhealthy and unnatural, We
are U) too great haste with everything
nnd  consequently   lack   poise.     In  tlie
perpetual rush to "got there" we nre in
very great danger of losing our equilibrium.—Orison Swelt Mal'den In Success.

When he received notice ol" his appointment as a High Court Judge he
was at Guildhall conducting a case,
and the court had just adjourned ior

became greatly excited, took oil his

Lord Brampton, better known as
Sir Henry Hawkins, now living in
retirement, was much feared by hardened criminals. This is illustrated by
an incident that occurred when the
lato Sir James Stephen actod as
judge for the last time.
A policeman was in tke box, and
His Lordship asked:
"What did the prisoiwr say, eon-
"He said, my Lord, that he didn't

There  was a   certain philanthropic
judge  who,  being  on  a  visit  of    inspection to a penal institution, trusted himsolf on the treadmill, and, with
:  a  view   to   gaining  a  little   practical
experience, desired the warder   to set
it in motion.
I     This was accordingly dene, and His
Lordship commenced  Ih'ting  his feet.
In a  few  minutes,  however,  the   new
hand had had quite enough of it, and
called  to  be released.   But  this  was
! not easily done.
j      "Please-, my Lord," said tho warder,   "you  can't  got  oil yet.    It's  set

Neglected Study.
A legal paper told this of a late
eminent judge. Several lawyers gathered one day in the judge's room after an adjournment of court, and
were discussing the retirement of a
member of the Bar. Iii the company
was one whoso practice wus worth a
good many thousands a yoar. Ho
"I have been practising for many
years now, and have made a considerable fortune. 1 have thought I
should like to retire and devote my
remaining years to studies I have

A Coincidence.
'lhat   eccentric,   but    kind-hearted,
judge, Sir James    Allen Parke,     acquired,    among    other     inconvenient
habits, a trick of thinking aloud.
One day, when trying an old woman for stealing faggots, he unconsciously ejaculated:
"Why, one faggot is as like another faggot as one egg is tike another
egg!" ,
The counsel defending the prisoner
caught the aside, and naturally mado
a strong point of it in his defence.
"Stop! slop!" cried His Lordship.
"It is an intervention of Providence.
This was tho vor.y thought that
passed through my own mind! Gentlemen, acquit tho prisoner."
Friendly Advice.
One of tlie best known of thc judges
of former times was Justice Maule,
ubout whom a great many stories
are told. A mnn was once indicted
before him for breaking open a young
lady's jewel case and robbing her of
the contents.
What have you to say?" asked tho
"My Lord, I did it with her consent," said the highwayman,
"in the future." said the iiid>;.\
blandly, "you should get the consent

And he gave him a stiff term of imprisonment,

It seems that one of the Irish judges of reoont times had n habit of
dozing (luring tin' more or less in-
torcstlng speeches of counsel, and,
from time to time awakening, ejaculating an odd remark iu the course of
the s| iceeh.
An eloquent counsel wa.s addressing
His Lordship oil the subject of certain town commissioners' right to n
particular waterway, and in his address he repeated somewhat emphatically:
"Dut, my lord, wo must have water, we must have water."
The learned Judge therefore awoke,
and start led the Par with the remark:
"Well,    just   a    little    drop,   thank
you; just a little.    I  liko it strong!"

All Europe was In pangs of terror
when Iu lS3i: lt was announced thnt
P.iolu's comet woultl cross tho earth's
path, reople died of terror, and bo serious did the scare become that a Parisian prof&isor begged the Academy of
Science to publicly refute tho assertion.
The comet came, blazed awhile in the
sky nud vanished. Its period of revolution round the sun being just under
seven years, lt came again in 1S30 nnd
was due once more early ln 1840. But
lu that year, instead of one comet, two
appeared! The original comet had divided iuto two parts, each of which
had a separate existence, though their
paths were the same."
In 1852 the two comets again came
flying 'Into sight. Their path in 18o9
was too close to the snn for telescopic
scrutiny, but iu 18B0 it was expected
that they would be plainly visible. But
the double comet never turned up. Nor
has lt ever been seen since.
Comots are naturally somewhat unreliable. They are of very flimsy texture. One great astronomer indeed has
said that ypu oouhl pack the tall of the
average comet in a portmanteau. So If
they pass too near to Jupiter or any of
the big planets they are very apt to get
caught and so to disappear completely.

The two expressions "by and by" and
"by the bye" ure really derived from
the same original word, and the words
"by" and "bye" have the same general
sense. But tbe spelling "bye" has long
been used in the second of these
phra-ses without any real reason fnr
the change. We should not speak of
a bye law or a bye path, nnd yet many
are careful to writo "by the bye" aid
"by Uie by." In "goodbye" there might
be some reason for keeping the limil
"e," since it stands for the word "ye"
in the shortened form of "Cod be with
ye;" but where so much lias been
dropped the "e" is hardly worth keeping, especially as the old meaning is
seldom recalled.

Chief Wonder and Attraction of Ilia Island
at TrlniMlaal-Nattwal  Aiphall ln
■lata af Parlaotlon.
Asphalt, in its natural form, is too
brittlo when cold and too sticky
when warm to mako a. serviceable
road, but when mixed with sand,
gravel and tar, answers every requirement. In its natural state, it is
found in many parts of the world,
but in only ono place to perfection,
and that is tho Island of Trinidad,
one of Great Britain's numerous
possessions in tho West Indies.
Trinidad's great pitch lake, which
is tho chief wonder and attraction of
tho island, is situated in a low,
sandy stretch of tho southwest coast,
near' Capo Corbaray. Tho surrounding country is low and malarial, in
striking contrast to the high hills
und rich woodlands to tho coast
further back.
Tho laborers aro all negroes, even
the coolies shrinking from the heat
and low fevers of tho place.
Tho lake itself is about a mile in
diameter, hard at tho edges and
softening toward tho middle. The
surface is continually changing, apparently from subterranean action.
Little oases of dry land, und even
trees and shrubs, will disappear in a
singlo night and fresh islands ot soil
lio reared  in  other <»li\ccs.
Tho lako is in all probability merely
an unusually largo deposit of bitumen or soft ooal, that has undergone
its transformation from decaying
vegetable matter in contact with
wutor, and too near the surfnro for
the oorth pressure above to harden
It thoroughly.
Hundreds of negroos the year round
toil at tho lako's edge, taking out
oargO after cargo from tho supply
that  seems never  to diminish.
The n.sphalt crust Is broken up
with picks and crowbars, ani is
loaded on dump-carts, drawn by a
single mule. 'Iho carts crunch
through a long, siuvdy road down to
the wharf at tho water's edge, where
the load is dumped and carried by
wheel barrows on board of lighters,
which in turn carry it out to ships,
lying a half milo out in tho shoal
The rough lumps of pickings are
hoisted on board in bnskets and piled in tho hold, where they sink
down into a compact mass, requiring
a fresh tilling tlie next day, and so
on  till  the  solid  enrgo  is  completed.
When the vessel reaches its port of
discharge the asphalt has to be broken up again before it can be removed
from the hold.
Owing to the viscous quality of the
native "pitch" it has, in the course
of nces. filtored through the sand soil
around tho lakes, and of the8e great
fields the asphalt is, if anything, better after its filtering process than
tlie original deposit.

Fighting for cards to entertainments,

tilings are essentially opposed to "that

These Influences are very widespread. To "get on" Is the great object of every one, and to get on one
must drop ua niany refinements as pos-
llble. Tliey "do not pay." Thin may
gct'in cynical, but lt is unfortunately
true. Cheek, push and cash are tht
three essentials to success, and If the

jasfiry for its getting.
This Is all false, unworthy. It la
onlv the veneer of a butterfly class.
Tbo aristocracy is one with the upper
middle classes in its rejection of these
Influences. Refinement is not dead

There is a well known weed witb

with the utmost seriousness by an old
woman that "whore you find them

long ago."
Tho same diune once seemed rather
In a hurry when buying a setting of
efrgs from nie about tea time, nnd I
found the reason was that she believed you had no luck with eggs if you
did not set thetn before sundown. This
is curious, for, though the modern
poultry keeper might make tho nest
and place tho eggs In lt during the
daytime, he would probably defer putting tlie "broody" on them till dusk
tint she miffht bave tho best chance
of settling down quietly.
The other day in n neighboring cot-
tage I was admiring a line baby and
ventured to suggest that If Its nails
were left so loug It might scratch its

them, but the grandmother burst ln
with: "You'll do nothing of the sort,
my dean, asking your pardon, sir. You
dmi't seem te know, sir, that to cut it

old makes it light fingered." And I
am perfectly certain tlie nails will not

Nova Scotia.   Awful!
When  you're   in    for a  drubbing

Alas!   The west  proved the graveyard of Tory hopes and anticipations.

the Pacific joined in tho chorus.
.British Columbia, we're ashamed of
you. Not a seat secured for Toryism
und tho party candidate in Comox
dropped out.    Wouldn't tluit jar you.
A wholesale gerrymander and Laur-
i.'r's sunny smile failed to swerve good
old Ontario from its Tory predilections.
One cabinet minister got licked and
another was pressed to tbe limit.
Toronto and vicinity did nobly by
the Conservatives, a solid delegation
being' elected. Clarke, McLeftn and
Poster are three of the bunch, and
they are good enough for the remnants of the party to rally around.
Defeat is bitter at any time, but at
this juncture the Conservatives feel it
doubly so, in that their revered and
respected leader, Hon. K. L. Borden,
was among those slain on the political
field. He fought a noble tight and.
for the main part, alone. Ho offered
himself a willing sacrifice for his party, neglecting his own constituency so
that lie might assist his followers in
the other provinces. Throughout the
campaign he bus been courteous, dig-
ni/ied and manly, winning the respect
and admiration of his opponents. It
is safe to say that though defeated,
Hon. Mr. Bordeu lias more friends today than ever before, while the Conservative party owe him an obligation
they will never be able to requite.

Though handicapped by a defeat in
the general contest, the Conservatives
iu Kootenay and Yale-Cariboo owe il
to the party to rally stronger and
more determined than ever around
their candidates, and seek to place
them in the lead on the 22nd. Had
these elections taken place on the 3rd,
both ridings would have gone Conservative beyond a doubt, and there is
jio just reason why even now the same
result cannot be achieved. Iu Kootenay Hon. Charles Mackintosh is conducting a strong canvass anil his personality has won for hiin a host of
friends. Conservatives, don't be discouraged, but see to it that your
every vote is polled on the 22nd. (ial

if those who believe in Conservative
principles will but do their duly, vie
tory for the (lovernor is certain,
'I'he dominion campaign  is over,
with the exception of a few scattered
Utul delayed contests, and the verdict
of the people is emphatically for the
Liberal party, they securing the largest majority iu the history of Canada-
Two things contributed to their success: the lack of harmony among Con
Servative leaders on the railway issue,
and tho continued prosperity nf (he
country due to the bountiful crops in
the west. In Nova Scotia the Liberals
made a clean sweep, retained almost
their wonted strength in Quobec,gain
ud slightly in Ontario, and practically
monopolized the west. The Conservatives have a majority iu Ontario and
Prince Edward Island, and ihey did
well in New Brunswick and Quebec,
A majority of the deferred election-
