! Dominion Parliament ;
I       Dissolved,
��� ���
��� Monday,   October 26, has ',
% beeu  definitely decided  on *
��� as the date for  the  general
��� elections,  with nominations
J a week earlier, on October 19
��� ��� Neb-on News.
The date of the election, October 26,
will como as a surprise to most people
who were looking for polling the lirjt
week in November. Apparently tho
desire of Uie government is to give tho
least possible time. Why it should so
desire is easily to be seen. It is not
anxious to have its record any more
fully discussed lhan it can help. From
the standpoint of political expediency
the Kovernnmit's course is a wise one.
Every day that thc campaign is prolonged means that its misdeeds and
mismanagement become better known
and its chances of being returned to
power again become more and more
The issues between the two parties
in this election aro cloar-cut and distinct. Mr. Borden and the conservatives stand for clean progressive government, while Sir Wilfrid Lnurier and
his supporters stand for all the graft
and corruption wliich has in recent
years disgraced the conduct of public
affairs in Canada,
In British Columbia the issues are
even more particulary defined than in
the rest of Canada. Mr. Borden is
pledged to see justice done the province in the mutter of bettor terms,
while Sir Wilfrid Laurier has already
refused, and will continue to refuse, to
grant British Columbia the additional
assistance to which she is entitled by
reason of tho peculiar position which
sho occupies. On tho Asiatic question
also Mr. Borden stance for a -white
British Columbia, while Sir Wilfrid
Lnurier and his supporters stand for
the opposite These are two questions
which affect British Columbia particularly, and the people of the province
aro now called upon to declare their
position on tliem. If they declare that
justice should bo done their province
in the matter of better terms and if
they desire a white British Columbia
their duty is to vote for the conservative candidates. They have no option
in tho matter. Is is either that or vote
for tho liberal candidates and thus endorse Sir Wilfrid Laurier's refusal of
justice and tho government's record on
the Asiatic question.
Mn tho constituency of Kootenay, Mr.
A. S. tioodeve, as a supporter of Mr.
Borden, deserves the support of every
man who has the interests of British
Columbia at heart. Whether as a supporter of Mr. Borden as premier of
Canada, or of Mr. Borden as lender of
he opposition he can bo depended upon to press the views of tho people of
British Columbia on these two important questions at Ottawa until justice is
done tho province in regard to both of
thorn.���Nelson Daily News.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier can thank him'self
for the appearance of provincial premiers and ministers with Mr. Borden
nt his future meetings. Among these
will be Sir James Whitney, wlnn he returns from England, and some ot his
ministers ill the meantime! Mr. Roblin,
premier of Manitoba, Mr. Hasten, premier ot New Brunswick, and Mr. MeBride, premier of British Columbia.
Sir Jol n Macdonald wns not disposed to
mix federal and provincial politics. Mr.
Mackenzie nnd Mr, Blake took tho same
view, but Sir Wilfrid Laurier came into
oilico by an alliance with provincial premiers, three of whom lie took into bis
ministry. Ho bas thrown the whole
federal inlluence into every provincial
contest since he became premier, declaring tbat thc la te On tar 0 government
waa the right arm, tbo Premier Parent's
administration the left arm ot his own
ministry. Sir Wilfrid's right arm was
neatly amputated three yoarB ago by
tho people of Ontario. lie lost his left.
by a revolt among his own Quebec
friends. But every Conservative provincial victory has been obtained against
all tlie power that the "federal administration could exert.
Rock Drilling at Ferguson.
In a double-handed rock drilling contest at Ferguson last Thursday, the
Slocan team, McGillivray and Erickson,
were defeated by tho local team, Mills
and Macdonald, Johnson and Dunn being second, after a second contest.
In the first contest, Johnson and
Dunn were the winners with McGillivray and Erickson second, but owing
lo tho rock splitting about the thirteenth minute, whilo the latter were
drilling, a protest was entered by them
and a second drill was ordered.
This proved to be a severe handicap
to tho Slocan team, who had to temper their stools under conditions they
were unaccustomed to. and Mills and
Macdonald with steels more suited to
tho rock, won first money, Johnson and
Dunn, who were second, breaking three
steels, whilst McGillivray and Erickson
had to contend with a fitcherod steel.
In the single-handed contest McGilli
vray won first prize and Erickson sec*
Entertainment in Bosun Hal!
An entertainment was given In the
Bosun Hall on Wednesday evening by
the Messrs. Slmms and Sherrah quart**
et!e of vocalists and Instrumentalist
(two Indies and two gouts).
There was only a moderate attendance, but those who wore fortunate enough to be there were rewarded by witnessing an entertainment of the highest
character. The two indies, besides being accomplished musicians, charmed
tho audience with then* delightful singing ami were repeatedly encored.
The entertainment was a niOEt meritorious one throughout, with scarcely a
dull moment from beginning to end, and
wo feel sure that when they next visit
lis thoy will meet wiih a heartier response from the public.
Tliey are due to appear at Slocan on
Friday, and the people of that city
should not mi*s the oppoi .unity of bearing iheso talented entertainers.
\l ���������;*.';'���<*_S.
There is plenty ot fine fruit in the district to make a good display in the Bosun Hall next Monday, and to select a
creditable exhibit at Nelson. We want
every possible variety represented and
it will he a grand chance to loam the
names of the different kinds. It will
also be a good chance to get varieties
named of which thc growers are uncertain.
I have not yet received word from
any of the growers along the Slocan
river valley as lo what they mean to
exhibit. We ought to get some fine
fruit from tho young trees there. Thero
Is moro fungus disease showing in the
apples and plums this year than 1 havo
seen before and when you nre looking over
your fruit lo find lbe best sort of specimens to exhibit it ia annoying to find a
smell bla k epot that disqualifies what
would otherwise have been a splendid
specimen. Wo shnll bave to use more
Bordeaux mixture and spray our trees
thoroughly if wo are going to do our
neighbourhood full justice at next year's
We want you to send whatever fruit
you can and wc want you to como to
the Bosun Hall on Monday afternoon
to enjoy the display and to bo encouraged by seeing what can be grown in
onr district.
Preserving the Forests.
"It you draw the attention of the man
in tlio street to our rapidly diminishing
supplies ol limbor bo will in nine cases
out of ten say, 'Yes, thnt's so. Why
the government ought to go to work and
plant up tbe open spots.' Let us examine the practicability ot sucli a scheme.
With a large and well-equipped nursery
for the growing ot forest tree seedlings,
nnd with labor at .2 per dny it is possible to reduce the coat of planting, fiyc
feet apart each way to between $7 and
$8 per acre. Forsake of argument let
ua assume that it can bu done for . 5 au
acre, or _3,*000 per square mil**. At ihis
rate the planting of a township only six
miles square would require tbo enormous expenditure ot .$115,000. The
'man in tlie street' will do some, pfetly
hard thinking beforo he will consent to
pay his abate ot the coal of such an
undertaking, yet he will read in his
morning paper that thirly townships, or
more than a thousand square miles ol
woodlands in northern Alberta, Saskatchewan or Manitoba have been destroyed by fire, and scarcely give the
matter a second thought.
"Would it not be very much more to
the purpose to take time by the forelock
and use the money required to plant up
a single township for the maintenance
of an efficient lire ranging system, similar to tbo ono already established in
Ontario'.' To my mind the problem
pressing hardest upon Hie Dominion
forest service tor solution is the protection of tbe western woodlands from lire.
The new railway being built through
tliem imd the settlement that will quickly follow will be a constant source of
danger, but if fire rangers who feel the
responsibility of their position, and
possess the necessary diligence, firmness and tact, lo faithfully perform their
duties and secure the oo-operalion of
the seniors nnd tho railway companies
can be found and retained in tbo service a greal deal may bo done to save
invaluable forest areas from ruthless
destruction."���A. II. It. Roes, MA,,

broken down all the barriers of caution, and be seemed for the instant to
see that countless throng of men, women and children of bis owu faitb, all
unable to say a word for themselves
and all looking to bim as their champion and spokesman.
"Do not sign it, sire," he cried. "You

For a moment tbe king bad hesitated
.is be listened to tbe short, abrupt sentences in whicli the soldier pleaded for
his fellows, but bis face hardened
ngain as be remembered bow eveu bis
own personal entreaty bad beeu unable to prevail witb tbis young dandy
of the court.
"France's religion should bo that of

"Very good, sin*."
"And I am to serve you no longer?"
"You aro too dainty for my service."
De Catlnat's ai ns fell listlessly t��
his side, nnd his head sank forward
upon his breast, Then, ns he realized
the ruin of all the hopes of his life
and tbe cruel Injustice with which he
bad boon treated, he broke Into a cry
of despair and rushed from the room
with the hot tears of impotent anger
running down his face. So, sobbing,
gesticulating, with coat unbuttoned
nud hut awry, he burst into tbo stable
where placid Amos Green was smoking his pipe and watching with critical
eyes tin* grooming of the horses.
"To Tiirls! To Paris!" shouted the
guardsman frantically, If I nm ruined
I may yet bo In time to save tbem. The
horses, quick!
It was clear to the American thnt
some sudden calamity bnd befallen, �����
he nlded bis comrade nnd tho grooms
to saddle nnd bridle. Five' minutes
later thoy were flying upon tbelr wny,
nud in little more than nn hour thoir
steeds, nil reeking und foam flecked,
were pulled up outside the high house
in the Hue St. Martin. De Cutinnt
sprang from his saddle and rushed upstairs, while Amos followed In bis own
leisurely fashion.
Tbe old Huguenot nnd his beautiful
daughter wore seated nt one side of
the great fireplace, hor hand In his,
nnd they sprang up together, sbe to
throw herself with n glad cry Into
the arms of her lover and he to grasp
the band which his nephew held out
to bim.
At the other side of the fireplace,
wltb a very long pipe In his mouth
and a cup of wine upon a settle beside
huh, sat a strange looking man, with
grizzled hair nnd board, a fleshy, red,
projecting nose and two little gray
eyes, which twinkled out from under
huge brindled brows. Ills loug, thin
1'iico was Inced nnd seamed wltb wrinkles, crossing and rccrossing everywhere, but fanning out In hundreds
from tbe corners of bis eyes. It was
set In an unchanging expression, and
ns it was of the same color all over,
ns dark as the darkest walnut, it might
bnve been some quaint flgurebend cut
out of a conrse grained wood. Ho wa3
chid Iu a blue serge Jacket, n pair of
red breeches smeared at the knees
with tar, clean gray worsted stockings,
large  steal  }��� *<*kles  dvor  bis  coarse
square toea BtiOes, una Beside mm,
balanced upou the top of n thick oaken
cudgel, wa3 a weather stained silver
laced bat. His gray shot bail* was
gathered up behind into a short, stiff
tail, and a seaman's hunger, with a
brass baudle, was girded to bis waist
by a tarnished leather belt.
De Catinat had been too occupied to
take uotice of this singular individual,
but Amos Green gave a shout of delight at the sight of bim, and ran for-
wnrd to greet him.
"Why, Captain Ephralm," cried
Amos in English, "wbo ever would
have thought of finding you here? De
Catinat, this is my old friend Ephralm
Savage, under whose charge I came
"Anchor's apeak, lad, and the
hatches down," said the stranger In
the peculiar drawling voice whicli tlie
New Engenders bad retained from
the English Puritans.
"And when do you sail?"
"As soon ns your foot Is on her dock,
if Providence serve us with wind and
tide. And bow has nil gone with thee,
"Right well. I have much to tell you
De Catlnat and his relatives wore far
too engrossed with their own affairs to
give n thought to the others. He Catinat told his tale 111 n few short, bitter
sentences, tho Injustice that had been
done him, bis dismissal from tho king's
service and the ruin which had come*
upon the Huguenots of France. Adele,
ns is tlie angel Instinct of woman,
thought only of her lover and bis misfortunes ns she*listened to his story,
but the old merchant tottered to bis
foot when ho heard of tbe revocation
of the edict.
"What nm 1 to do?" he cried. "What
am I to do? I am too old to begin my
life again."
"Never fear, uncle," said De Catlnat
heartily. "There aro other lands beyond France."
"But not for me. No, no; I am too
old. Lord, but thy hand is heavy upon
thy servants. What sball I do nnd
Whither shall I turn?" He wrung his
hands in his perplexity.
"What Is amiss with bim, then,
Amos?" asked the seaman.
"He and his must leave tbe country,
"And why?"
"Because they nre Protestants and
the king will not abide their creed."
Ephralm Savage was across the
room in an instant nnd had inclosed the
old merchant's thin hand iu his own
grout knotted fist. There was a brotherly sympathy in his strong grip aud
rugged, weather stained fnce.
"Tell this mnn that we shnll see him
through, Amos. Tell him that we've got
a country where he'll just tit in like a
bung in a barrel. Tell him that religion is free to all there. Tell him that
if be wants to come the Golden Kod Is
waiting wilh her anchor apeak aud her
cargo aboard."
"Then we must come nt once," said
De Cntinnt ns he listened to the cordial
message which was conveyed to his
uncle. "Tonight the orders will be out,
and tomorrow it may be too lute."
"But my business!" cried tho merchant.
"Take what valuables you can nnd
leave the rest. Better that than lose
all, and liberty inlo the bargain."
And so nt last it wns arranged, That
very night, within live minutes of the
closing of tho gales, there passed out
of Paris a small party of five, three
upon horseback nnd two In a closed
carriage which bore several weighty
boxes upon the top. They were the
first leaves (lying before the hurricane,
the earliest of that groat multitude
who were within the next few months
to stream along every roud which led
from France.
Thanks to the early tidings which
the guardsman had brought with him,
liis little party were now ahead of the
news. At ltouon all was quiet, nnd
Cnptain Ephralm Savage before evening hnd brought both them and such
property as they bnd saved aboard his
brigantine, the Goldeu Kod. It was but
a little craft, some seventy tons burden, but at a time when so many wore
putting out to sea in open boats, preferring the wrnth of nature to that of
the king, It wns a refuge indeed. The
same night the seaman drew up bis
anchor nnd begun to slowly mnke hla
way down the winding river.
Wltb tho early duwu tbo river broadened out nnd encb bnnk trended nway,
leaving a long, funnel shaped estuary
between. Ephralm Savage snuffed the
air nnd paced the deck briskly, with a

"But whnt Is the matter with tlie

Tbo old merchant had been leaning
over tbo bulwarks, looking buck with
a drawn fnce nnd weary eyes nt the
red curving truck behind thorn whicli
marked the path to Purls. Adelo bad
como up now with not n thought to
spare upon the dangers nnd troubles
which lay In front of her as she chafed
the old mnn's thin cold bands and
whispered words of love and comfort
Into his cars.
"Wo nro nlwnys In tbe hollow of

Adele, It is n dreadful thing to feel his

"Come with us, uncle," said De Cnt-
Inat, passing bis arm under that of tbe

When father mid daughter had left

again to where Amos Green nnd the

"I am glad to get them below,
Amos," said he, "for 1 fear tbat we
may have trouble yet."
"And how?"
"You see the white road which runs
by the southern bunk of the river.
Twice within the last half hour I
have seen horsemen spurring for dear

thither it was that these men went. 1
know not who would ride so madly at
such an hour unless they were the messengers of the king. Ah, see, there is
a third one!"
On tbo white band which wound
among the green meadows a black dot

with great rapidity, vanished behind
a clump of trees, nnd then reappeared
ngnin, making for tbe distant city.
Captain Savage drew out his glass and

Do Catinat, who, though he could

looked anxiously nt Amos (irci'ii. "I

Tales of Their Gloomy Darkness and
Silence  Denied by  Modern Writers.
The travelers who first penetrated
the vast equatorial forest of Africa
fixed the world's attention with word
pictures that are now believed to be
partly fantastic. Some of them told
how they wandered months without
seeing the sun. They lived at noonday in semi-darkness. The undergrowth almost prevented progress, no
fresh breezes could penetrate the area
of gloom, and even the animals were
silent, like every other phase of nature existing there.
To-day writers seem to take an entirely different view of the tropical
forest, so that one is forced to the con-
elusion that either the old-time writers or else those of modern days regard the public as a collection of
stupids ready to swallow anything so
long as it is thrilling or unusual.
Maurice Delafosse, one of tho leading
colonial officials of France, contradicts many statements of earlier travelers. He says that nowhere has he
found tho African forest darker than
any other dense woodland. The vegetation in it is certainly more luxuriant
and more crowded together than in a
European forest, but it is an exaggeration to say they arc covered with impenetrable vegetation. Wherever the
natives live, well worn footpaths lend
in all directions. Traveling is hard
on some of them, but many of the
paths are very useful highways. Delafosse had none of tlie experience of
travelers wbo assert that their garments havo practically been stripped
off thorn by thc dense and thorny
undergrowth. He lived for month's
In forest without greater damage to
bis clothing than in any other parts
ol Africa, except that when traveling
rapidly on a hunting path his sleeves
have become unduly worn at the elbows.
As for darkness in the forests, ho
often took his compass bearings without artificial light when pitching
camp at nightfall. The forest traveler
has tbis advantage, that he is always
in shadow, nnd on the hottest days
he can pursue bis journey the whole
afternoon, which would be impossible
in the open country.
As for the reputed feeling of discomfort and oppression in the depths
of the forest, this is partly true. When
there is no stir in the atmosphere it is
more difficult to breathe in the forest
than in the open, nnd as there is less
chance for evaporation the discomfort,
of excessive perspiration is manifest.
It must bo remembered, however,
that if under such atmospheric conditions a man breathes more easily
in the open land he is at the same
time much hotter and so far more uncomfortable. When a breeze stirs
anywhere it penetrates the woods also
with  refreshing effect.
Dolafosso records that ho has had
few such delightful experiences in
Africa as on his morning walks in the
depths of tbe forest. He has never
fcund forest travel as uncomfortable
as marching over the savannahs
where the high grass is above his
bead. It is then that a man without
air, horizon or shade feels as though
he would melt.
There are plenty of sounds in the
forest to attract attention also, and
they help to keep ennui at a distance.
Something is going on ull the time.
In addition to the ceaseless murmur of the streams there are the humming of insects, the song of birds, the
chatter of the monkeys, tlieir gymnastic feats from branch to branch, tho
occasional falling of doad branches
and tree trunks, and at night time
the wonderful harmonies snd discords
of animate and inanimate life that
awaken when darkness comes and
sleep again at sunrise.
Legitimist Leader Mystified Over Revelation by Prefect Lepine.
Paris Gil Bias gives tbe world an
''lustration of the workings of the
French secret police In an anecdote
which It publishes witb au assurance
'hat the Incident happened recently.
A distinguished member of Parisian
iociety sent out invitations for a largo
loiree at his house In the Faubourg
it. Germain. He Is a Legitimist, and It
was hardly concealed that the gathering was to bave a certain political slg-
j ulficance.
As soon as he heard of It Police
Prefect Lepine called upon the host
aud with the utmost politeness solicited a couple of invitations for agents
on his staff.
"M. Ie Comte." said he, "I give yon
my word of honor the men to whom I
Intrust tbem will look like perfect gentlemen; thoy will act like gentlemen���
In n word, tliey will be worthy of the
honor you confer on them by making
them your guests."
Tbe count was very haughty, however. He explained with ill concealed
lisdnln that bis party would be mnde
up of the bluest blood iu France aud
any outsider would be at once conspic-
SI, Lepine nppenred to be convinced;
at least he yielded the point gracefully,
merely adding: "At least, M. le Comte,
you will allow nie to see the list of
your guesto. My duty compels me to
know who will be there."
M. le Comte mnde uo objection. He
produced the list, nnd Lepine scanned
It carefully. He wns wreathed in

March Through  Fire.
Six thousand Hindus and a select
few English officials have recently
witnessed in the neighborhood of Madras a remarkable religious ceremony,
thc principal actors being Solvrastas,
a sect of Brahmins.
The festival was called "the march
through fire," and it is appropriately
enough named.  The proceedings were
i*i honor of Brahma and Vishnu, the
-gods of water and fire.
Preparations for the ceremony had
been going on for a month, says The
London Globe. A trench 23 feet long
and 19 feet deep waa dug, and in it
a fire was kindled. At sunrise 40
fanatics, who were to demonstrate
their asbestos nature, slowly marched around the furnace bearing the
curious idols. The Solvrastas were
clothed in yellow tunics," and without
hesitation entered the fire trench singing a hymn, the refrain of which was

model for the bridegroom. Boon after
the artist bad begun to paint the model turned deadly white. "Are you ill?"
asked Sir Luke anxiously. "Naw,"
said thc man; "1 be all ruight, zur."
However, tho painter made him rest
awhile, but when he resumed work a
little later the unfortunate "bridegroom" became even paler than before, and in serious alarm Sir Luke
nsked him what was the matter. "It's
hawthing at all except the 'olding of
rue breath so long." replied the model.

Stomach Was

Sufferers with nervous dyspepsia
deserve sympathy. Bordering upon
the verge of a. nervous breakdown,
with tho nerves of the stomach paralyzed, so that the work of digestion
is impaired, remedial steps should
4 bo taken nt once. When the stomach
becomes irregular, the whole system
responds. Thc tired feeling takes
possession, ambition and energy are
stolen, and one finds himself robbed
and in despair.
Dr. Chase's Ncrvo Food nourishes
the weakened nervous system back to
bealth nml strength by sending new
vitality  through  the  whole body.
Mr. Ferdinand Buteau, Berthier,

"For over a year t suffered from nervous dyspepsia and. could not pet relief, though I tried many remedies.
My doctor told me that my stomach

says n correspondent. "Browning was
not the only poet with peculiar views
on the subject. One of Byron's chlet
fears was that of becoming fat, and to
avoid it he often resorted to extraordinary systems of diet. At Athens he
lived mainly on rice and vinegar and
water. Later he confined himself to
six biscuits a day nnd tea. In 1816 ho
had so restricted his diet that he was
obliged to keep down hunger by chewing mastic and tobacco. 'Don Juan'
was 'written on gin and water.'"

A Pretty Custom That Is Peculiar t.
Coffee as a wedding gift Is peculiar
lo Brazil. The custom in coffee raising
countries Is unknown lu other parts of
the world. When a child Is born in
the coffee country a sack of the best
grain is set aside as part of the inher-
ilanco, to be received on attaining its
majority. Usually the sack is the gift
from some close friend or relative, and
. is guarded as sacredly as If It were
:i gift of gold or bonds. No stress
would induce a Brazilian parent to use
coffee which was mnde the birth gift
of a child. As a rule, It is sealed with
the private seal of the owner and bears
a card giving all particulars about tho
variety of grata* its age on being
sacked, the birth of the child to whom
It Is given and other details which
are very Interesting when the gift
is due. Generally the coffee la
opened for the first time when the
child marries. Tlio coffee for the reception or marriage feast is made from
the legacy, nnd according to precedent
Ibis must be the first time the sack Is
opened. After the coffee is made for
the wedding feast the sack Is carefully
closed and sent to the new borne of the
young couple nud should keep them In
this staple for a year at least. When
both bride and bridegroom have the
birth gift of coffee thoy have started
life miner very hopeful conditions, so
fnr as ono necessary Is concerned. Few
people know that the older tbe nn-
parched grain of coffee is thc better
the flavor. Like wine. It grows with age,
nnd that which Is dver twenty" yenrs
mellowing under proper conditions will
bring from $1.50 to $*i a pound from
connoisseurs. The giving of pounds
of green coffee is a common practice
In the coffee belt Friends exchnnge
those gifts and compare results. When
one cannot nfford to give n sack of
coffee It frequently is tbe case thnt ten
pounds of the best grain are packed In
a fancy case and bestowed on a newly
born child, with directions thnt It must
not be opened until the wedding day.

She Should Not Necessarily Tell the
Whole Truth.
With so mnny people seemingly unable to tell the truth, tlie very title of
a new book, "The Girl Who Couldn't
Tell a Lie," is refreshing. One wishes
to make her acquaintance. She would
be a gladsome oasis In many an arid
waste of lies.
Hnve you paused to think how mnny
people fail to connect with the truth?
Not that one' advises wholesale truth
telling. Indeed, It is only common decency to bo silent, say, on the subject
of hanging when one member of the
party has hnd n relntlve hanged. A
little tact will usually prevent one
from snying tbe rude thing. A very
good rule is never to ask a question
which In the answering may prove
unpleasant and never to make thoughtless remarks whlcb may make somebody unhappy, uncomfortable or downright angry.
In the end the heroine in the story
returns to her people, penniless and
broken spirited, crushed by the discovery that iu this hard and cynical
world the uncompromising truth teller
must pay tbe price of her heroic virtue.
Poor Paulino! One feels to whisper
to her that It really ls unnecessary,
even unwise, to tell unpleasant truths.

Unless the Blood is Made Rick
and Red Health Cannot Be
Throughout Canada there nre
thousands of growing girls and women held in the deadly clutches rf
anaemia. Slowly but surely a deathly pallor settles on their cheeks; their
eyes grow dull; their appetite fickle;
their steps languid. Daily they are
being robbed of all vitality and
brightness. Their sufferings grow
more acute if neglected until the signs
of early consumption become apparent. If your wi'e or daughter or sister
complains of weakness, pains in the
side, headaches or backaches; if lier
appetite and temper are uncertain
and she is cl'ten low spirited anaemia
has her in its deadly bold. What she
needs is new, rich, red blood. Give
her Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pnle
People without loss of time, for they
actually make new, red blood. They
make girls and women well and happy
impart an appetite and steadily bring
back tlie charm and brightness of
perfect,   regular   health.
Miss Carrie McGrath, 2G Femviek
St., Halifax, N. S., says:���"I believe
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills saved my
life, Throe years ago ] suffered from
anaemia in n seven* form. 1 was nil
run down and as pnle as a sheet. I
could scarcely eat anything, and
what I did take did not seem to
nourish me. My bands and feet wore
much swollen nnd the least exertion
would leave me breathless and my
heart boating violently. I seemed to
have pains and ncbes all over, i was
so weak I could not even sweep a
floor. At different times T was under
the care ot three doctors, but did not
get any better. One doctor said I
hnd dropsy and that my blood had nil
turned to wnter. My friends thought
I was in a decline nnd thnt I bad but
a short time to live. I was completely discouraged myself, when one day
a lady 'riend called to see me, and
told me Dr. Williams' Pink Pills had
cured her daughter of anaemia and
urged ine to try tbem. I decided to
try them, and in the course of a few
weeks felt somewhat better. I met
the doctor one day and he remarked
how much better T was looking, I
told him it was not his medicine but
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills that were
helping me, and he told me I hud
bettor keep on taking them. I continued to do so until I had tnken nnother half dozen boxes, when my
health wns perfectly restored. I nm
more than grateful for what these
pills have done for me and strongly
.eopmmend them to all weak girls."
Thousands of men and women, now
well and strong, praise Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills for having cured anaemia,
general weakness, indigestion, rheumatism, neuralgia, nervous disorders,
paralysis and the ailments of girlhood ' and womanhood. These Pills
do this by making new, red blood

drives out disease and strengthens
every organ in the body. Sold by

Learn to smile, not giggle.
Nothing is more Infectious and

It Is no wonder that young men
speak with utter scorn of the giggling
girl. They seem to think her the least
attractive maiden on earth. It Is trying to attempt to hold uny kind of conversation with a girl who will punctuate her every remark with giggles.
It Is not always possible to know nt
first tnnught whether or not you nre
one of the girls who giggle. Stop and
think nbout It. Watch yourself the

Is better than a silly giggle.
Distinguishing Pur* Linen From
Counterfeit  Is  Easy.
Of the goods sold ns "all wool" tbere
Is uot one-tenth thut Is genuine. Generally the main component Is cotton.
The test for this Is simple. All that
Is necessary Is to pull out a few
threads aud apply a lighted match.
Cotton will go off in a blaze; wool will
shrivel up.
To distinguish pure linen from counterfeit Is even easier. The Intended
buyer need but wet her finger nnd np-
ply It to the goods. If they nre pure
linen, the moisture will pnss straight
through; the spot touched will be soaked at once, and almost immediately
one side will he us wet as the other.
Frauds nre more numerous In silk
tban in any other fabric, but here also
the material of adulteration Is cotton.
Its presence can rendily be discovered.
Draw a few threads out. Tbe pieces of
cotton will snap off short when pulled,
while the silk will stretch and permit
a considerable pull before brenktng.
The bousted silk of our grandmothers
that "stood by Itself" ls not necessarily
the best. Modern Ingenuity has devised
means of giving tlie poorest article the
body requisite for this purpose.

Socialism Offers Peace and Friendship
Instead of Conflict.
Our present system of society is
based on a state of perpetual war.
Do any of you think this is as it
should bo? I know that you have
often been told that tbe competition
which is at present the rule of trade
s a good tiling and that it stimulates
the progress of the race, but the people who tell you this should call competition by its shorter name of war
if they wish to be honest, and you
would then be free to consider whether or no war stimulates progress
otherwise thnn ns a mud bull chasing
you over your own garden may do.
War or competition, whichever you
may please to cull it, means at the
best pursuing your own advantage at
the cost of some one else's loss, and
in tho process of it you must not be
sparing of destruction even ol your
own possessions or you will certainly
corns by the worst in the struggle.
You understand that perfectly as to
the kind of war in which people go
out to kill and be killed���that sort of
war in which ships are commissioned,
for instance, "to sink, burn and destroy"���but it appears that you are
not so conscious of this waste of

that other war called competition.
Observe, however, that the waste ia

would form one great, community,
agreeing together as to the kind and
amount of production and distribution needed, working at such and
such production whore it could be
best produced and avoiding waste hy
all moans. Please to think of the
amount of waste which thoy would
avoid; how much such a change would
add to the wealth of the world!���William Morris, British Manufacturer and
Landse.r's Valet.
Sir Edwin Landseer, the famous
animal painter, had an old servant
��� his butler, valet and faithful slave
���named William, who was particularly assiduous In guarding the outer
portal. No one could by any possibility gain direct access to Sir Edwin,
The answer would invariably be, "Sir
Hedwin is not at 'ome." The prince
consort himself once received this
answer when he called, amplified on
that occasion by the assurance that
"he lind gone to n wedding," an entire fiction on William's part, as the
princo found out, for on walking boldly in nnd nround the garden be noticed Sir Edwin looking out of his studio
window. This was the faithful attendant who, one day, when a lion
had died at tbe zoo nnd his corpse
came up in a four wheeled cab to ht
painted from, startled his master with
the question, "Please. Sir Hedwin,
did you holder a lion?"
Dysentery corrodes the intestines
and speedily eats away the lining,
bringing ubout dangerous conditions
that may cause death. Dr. J. 1). Kel-
logg's Dysentery Cordial clears tho
intestinal canals of the germs that
cause the Inflammation, mid by protecting the lining from further ravages restores them" to healthy condition. Those subject to dysentery
should hot bo without this simple
yet powerful  remedy.
Eggs Were Rigid.
In his early days it was suggested
to Mr. Meredith, the novelist, that he
should take up his residence with
Rossetti at Queen's House, Cheyne
Walk. The novelist agreed to take a
couple of rooms, and one morning,
shortly after Rossetti had moved in,
Mr. Meredith, wbo was living in May-
fair, drove over to Chelsea to inspect
his new apartments. "It was past
noon," relates Mr. Meredith; "Rossetti had not yet risen, though it was
an exquisite day. On the breakfast
table in a huge dish rested five thick
slabs of bacon, upon which five rigid
eggs had slowly, bled to death! Presently Rossetti nppenred in dressing
gown, with slippers down at heel, and
devoured the dainty repast like an
ogre." This decided Mr. Meredith.
He did not even trouble to look at
his rooms, but sent in a quarter's
rent that afternoon and remained ia
May fair.
Byron's Proposal.
Lord Byron in 1330 seriously turned
his thoughts to matrimony. He confided to a friend liis intention of proposing te Miss Milbanke, the daughter
of Sir Ralph Milbanke. The friend
thought some other lady more suitable and agreed with Byron to write
a proposal for him. One day as thc
two were sitting together Byron received a refusal from the lady. "You
see," said he, "that after all Miss
Milbanke is to be the person. I will
write to her." Accordingly he did so,
and the friend, who was still opposed
!o his choice, on reading over the
letter remarked: "It really is a vory
pretty letter. It is a pity it should
not go." "Then it Rhall go," said
Byron. It went, and the result was
the miserable marriage which is now
�� matter of history.
Two  Points of View.
An old Scotchwoman was walking
to church with ber family. The aula
kirk minister rode past at a tremendous rate, and the old lady said to
her children: "Siccan a wey to be
ridin', and this the Sawbath day.
Aweel, aweel, a gude man is marcifu'
to his beast!"
Shortly afterward her own minister
rode past just ns furiously, and the
worthy old wifie cried: "Alls there he
Roes! The Lord bless him,-puir man I
His heart's in his wark, an' he's eager
to bti at it."
Feeding an Eskimo.
It is said that an Eskimo will devour twenty pounds of meat ip a day.
When tbe meat trust strikes the"
iroz/'ii north the native ought to
aianage to worry along on half rations to keep down the price of living.
The Farmer's Sign.
According to the Atluuta Constitu
tion, a Georgia furmer posted this sign
on his frout gate:
"Candidates will pass on. No time to
talk to 'em."
One morning his little boy shouted
from the garden walk:
"There's cne o' them canderdates
here, an' he says he'll come In anyhow!"
Tbe old mnn looked toward tbe gate
and said:
"Let him In. There's no harm ln him.
I know him. He's been runnln' ever

Hurt a Convict's Pride.
A church army missioner had :>
letter recently from a convict begging him to reform tbe writer's wife,
wbo  was ulso in prison.
The convict���who is serving a long
term���wus very anxious ubout the
mutter, because, us be said, "it was
no credit to him to receive letters
from such a place ns prison."

While we may pick and choose aad
���do exactly as we please about our
' I'lothes, there have been ln times gone
"by, In many countries and even iu our
own, what were known as "sumptuary
laws." These laws regulated expenditure for dress, for ornament, for food
or for whatever refreshments you
might give company when they came
to take ten.
Among tho lirst of these sumptuary
laws was one made in Home In -15 13.
C. and called the "Oppian law." It declared that no woman should possess
more than half nn ounce of gold, wear
���a dress of different colors or ride in a
vehicle In the city or within a mile of
it except on occasions of public religious ceremonies. This lav/ lasted only
twenty years.
Italy and Franco are the countries
where most of these laws have been
passed, and some of tbem read very
Gtrangcly. In 1330, In Italy, no woman
was allowed to wear a dress with figures painted on it; she could only havo
them embroidered. And In 1348, ln the
same country, neither dark green nor
Iihick dresses were allowed to be worn
ln the morning.���St. Nicholas.

The Oi*I*_l*nr.l of tlio Hero of Marlc
Twain*. '*GHdod Arc"
The real name of the hero of "Tbe
Gilded Age'' was Eschol Sellers, and
ho was an inventor and an active promoter very well known in the early
days of the new west. His father wns
one of the flrst locomotive builders in
the United States, with works at Philadelphia. Eschol Sellers and Charles
Dudley Warner occupied adjoining
houses some years beforo "The Gilded
Ago" was written. Sellers at that timo
was developing a coal field near Shaw-
neetown, 111., nt what was then and is
Still known us Sellers' Landing. He
was also Inventing a process afterward largely used In making paper
out of Indian weed pulp. He was also
experimenting with the camel back
engine. Notwithstanding the fact that
Sellers' enterprises were destined all
to be successful, Charles Dudley Warner conceived tho Idea that he was a
typical Visionary dreamer. He therefore suggested the name of Eschol
Sellers for the hero of "The Gilded
Age," and Mark Twain used the name,
believing It to be fictitious. One of
the first copies of the book happened
to be seen by Eschol Sellers, who went
at once to Hartford and enjoined the
publication. A compromise wns effected by which the publishers pnid
Kellers $5,000 for damages and cut all
of the plates, removing the name
Eschol and substituting that of Mulberry. Eschol Sellers (lied at a very
advanced ngo at his pleasant homo on
Missionary ridge, near Chattanooga,
