From our Correspondent.

120 acres ol fruit land to Messrs. Hess
& Guyet, two very wealthy German
gentlemen. They have also arranged'
with Mr. Abriel to have 40acres cleared

fruit farming on a large scale.

Miss Meliins, who has been visiting
in town, left for her home in Nnnainio.
Mr. J. S. Crowell is building a thirty-
foot launch for C. B. McAllister. It
will bo completed in about a month.
Mrs. McKittrick, who hns spent the
last six weeks on a pleasure jaunt
through California and the coast cities
has returnod home again..
Mr. Fred Wensley, who hns just completed building a nice houso on his
ranch, was ready to uove in when the
house was discovered to be on lire and
within a few minutes it was burned to
tiie ground. The cause of tlie lire is a
mystery.
Two weddings are expected to take
place here next week. Full report in
next issue.
Mr. Robt. Day spent a few days in
Nelson this week.
The steam launch Minerva, decorated
with Chinese lanterns, wns out on a
moonlight t ip on Monday evening.
Numerous bush fires nre reported from
different points, fires i-lill smouldering
between Grand Forks and Eholt, while
between B. C. Junction and Phoenix a
fire has been burning for several days.
C. P. R. section men are beii.g kept
busy in preventing the flames from surrounding bush fires doing damage to the
company's right of way.
The hot weather ot tha past few
weeks is in a large measure responsible
for these outbreaks, and tlie urgent
necessity of min is daily becoming
more apparent.
A ten-year old Cliicngo girl is credited
with being able to repeat the whole of
the "Merchant of Venice" by "heart."
Her head does not seem to have entered
into the partnership.
A sky scraper, 1,000 feet high, is to
bo erected in New York, where there is
already one whicli soars 900 feet into
the air. Not content, with having
bought tlie whole eiirth'the Americans
now want a mortgage on tlie heavens as
well. The chaps in- the top storey of
the 1,000 feet building may run the risk
of being scorched by lightning, but they
see a lot more than their rivals in the
street. It's tlie tlevated Yankee who
catches tlie first sunbeam.
The "Tororilo World" snys "the dirty
bills and defaced coins which are circulated among the people of this
country add no credit to the good name
of tlie dominion. If sanitary considerations do not suggest something better,
then pride of country should rise to the
occasion. Dominion dollar and two
dollar notes are permitted to circulate
until they reek with dirt and scarcely
conform in size to tlie newer notes with
wliich they are counted from time to
time."
This may be all right as farns Toronto
is concerned, but we have no opportunity of judging as it is some time since
we hnd the satisfaction of handling a
bunch of the "dirty bills." We suppose they have had to ciiculate so far
tliey iiave not yet had time to reach us.
Pay the Printer!
Touching that little affaii ! How do
yon stand with your subs. ? Is it time
they were renewed ? If io, a couple of
dollars will do tlie trick.
"It is belter to be sure than  sorry
is a wise saving and one to always keep
in   mind���especially    when   mountain
climbing.    What do you say, George ?
The first issue of the Ladysmith
Chronicle is just to band. It is tlie intention of the publishers, Messrs. Cur-
ley and Carley to enlarge it from four
pages, as' at present, to eight pages
and also to publish it semi-weekly, provided of course, that the people of Lady-
smith do tlie square thing nnd don't
starve them out through lack of support.
The publishers also state that Ihe paper
is to be nm a3 an independent one.
IT IS NOT TRUE���

Spokane Interstate Fair.
NO LIQUOR TO BE SOLD.
Nothing lint temperance drinks will
be sold at the Spokane Pair grounds
thij_year, as the sale of liquor is a
tiling of the past at tiie Fair. There
will be no bar on tlie Spokane Fuir
ground this full. This wns tlie unanimous opinion of tlie board of directors
at the last meeting of tiie Interstate
Fair Association.
Tlie abolition of the bar was deemed
necessary, so the liquor selling con-
ce-sion will be omitted from tlie list
of privileges to be auctioned to the
highest bidder on the 29ih of August.
The long bar under the grand stand
will be devoted hencefoilh to other
purposes.
"The management of the Fair has
long desired to take this step, and
has tuken it on their own voli ion,
believing it to be the wish of the people.," slates President George T.
Crane. "We have always tried to conduct the Fair to please the public. We
have had tlie matter under discussion
since tlie Fair last fall, and it has been
practically understood that the bar
privilege in future would be suspended.
Conditions have changed and I want lo
assure the public that we are trying
always to manage tlio fair to please the
greatest number."
The former bar room under the big
grand stand will, in all probability, be
turned into a poultry show tlrs year.
This poultry exhibit litis fall will be
one of the most extensive in the history
of the Fair.
IN AID OF THE FERNIE
FIRE SUFFERERS.
"Brush Fires"
And Forestry.
(From the New York World.)
Tlie forest fire that swept away nearly ���"���10.000,000 worth of properly and destroyed many lives in British Columbio
started from camp fires in tlie "clash
nigs" of a lumber company.
These slashings aie tlie limbs ai d
topB of trees left by lumbermen as they
cut, together with smaller stuff, cleared
away to make roads and get out tlie
logs. Dry as tinder in summer, the
slashings leap lo flame at the first invitation. They should be burned nfter
by the lumbermen svhen the ground is
wet, or when there is snow upon it,
leaving tlie lumbered forest clear of tinder-like rubbish. Butthatcosts money.
Forest fires are as preventable as typhoid fever. When engines on forest
railways are run by electricity or have
spark arresters, when flashings are
burned by tlie men who make thom,
and when Betting fire by carelessness
or intent is severely punished, the c million forest heritage which man is 'o
shamefully wasting to make tlie earth
a  desert will   eland a better chance.
At the Irrigation Convention, which
has been he'd at Vernon this week, a
resolution was passed asking the government to take drastic measures for
tlie protection of forests and for the
punishment of offenders under the Busli
Tires act.   -
Several bush fires have broken out
this week. One started on the C.P.R.
track west of Denver Siding Tuesday
morning antl has burned down to the
lake shore. Two others etartr-d the
Fame day ut Slocan, one near tlie Put-
lick Lumber Co.'s property, and another
along lhe Slocan river. In the present
condition of tlie weather thc forests are
like tinder, and much   alarm   is  felt.
Tlie "Review" acknowledges the receipt ot a copy ot "The Forests and lhe
People," a publication issued by the
Canadian Forestiy Association. It is
published witli a view lo making the
people of Canada understand Ihe tremendous significance of properly conserving our forest wealth.
Copies of the above, along with any
other literature bearing upon forest
topics may be obtained from Mr. F. W.
Jacoinbe, of the Canadian Forestry
Branch, Ottawa.
It is reported fiom tlie Slocan dislrict
that although tlie tiwn of S.indon iu
just now at as low an ebb as it has been
for many years, yet for all that tlie
mining properties In ihe diatrict arc
looking well and there aro more men at

ICE-CREAM SOCIAL AND DANCE
TO BE HELD IN BOSUN HALL
ON TUESDAY THE 18rn
During tbe past week snggest:oi)8
hnve been made Unit the people of New
Denver and district shou'd do sonie-
tning towards relieving tbe distress
caused by the recent disastrous fire at
Pernio, nnd a meeting for that purpose
was held in Bosun Hull on Thursday
evening.
There wns only a moderate attendance and after a short discussion it wns
unanimously decided to hold an Ice
Cream Festival and Concert to conclude
with a Dance on Tuesday afternoon and
evening next, in tiie Bosun Hall, the
whole of tlie proc *eds to be d.voted to
tlie Fernie relief fund.
Mr. H. Cue was elected secretary,
and the following were appointed to
superintend the airangements: Messrs.
G. Smith, B. P. Baker, H. Cue, J. 3.
Smith, A. Thompson and Ed. Angrignon
Miss Cue, Mrs. Thompson, and Mrs.
were the ladies appointed, wilh power
to add to their number. Messrs. R. P.
Baker, R. Bluemenauer and C. J. Vallance were chosen to make arrangements
for the holding of a dance at the conclusion of the Social.
Already many generous offers of assistance have been received. Mr. J. C.
Harris has given tlie use of the hall for
the occasion, and other donations of ice,
cream, etc., have been offered, whilst
it is confidently expected that tne other
requisites will soon be forthcoming.
All that now remains to be done to
ensure tlie Festival being n success is
the whole-heated support of the people
in backing up the efforts of the promoters and to show their lympathy in
a practical manner by attending ih largo
numbers ou Tuesday next.
Mr. Herbert Cue, the secretary, will
thankfully acknowledge any sum, however small, from those persons who
though unable to attend, nre desirous of
contributing towards the fund.
Mining is quite active in the vicinity
of Grand Forks nnd Nelson on the,
smaller properties. More work is being
tone in a development way this year
than has been done lor some years past.
J_bis is no doubt in view of tlie improved
condition ol the market for small but
meritorious mining properties, which is
quite noticeable here iu the west.

CHAPTER XI.
DE CATINAT In the meanwhile
was perfectly aware of the
importance of the mission
which had been assigned to
hlm. He knew enough of the Intrigues
nnd antagonisms with which the court
was lull to understand that every precaution was necessary in carrying out
his instructions. lie waited, therefore,
until night had fallen before ordering
his soldier-servant to bring round thc
two horses to one of the less public
Bales of the grounds. As he and bis
friend walked together to the spot he
gave the young American a rnpid
sketch of tlie situation at the court nnd
of the chance that this nocturnal ride
might be an event which would affect
the future history of France.
"Are you armed?" he nsked.    "You
have no sword or pistols?"
"No; If I may not carry my gun I
had  rather not  be  troubled by  tools
that 1  hnve never learned to use.    I
have my knife.   But wliy do you ask?"
"Because there mny be dnnger. Many
have an Interest In stopping this marriage.    All the first men of the kingdom nre bitterly against It    If they
could stop us. they would stop It, for
tonight nt least."
"But I thought It was secret."
"There is no such thing at a court
There   is  the  dauphin   or  the  king's
brother.  Elrlipr of thorn or any of their
friends would be right glad that \r*
should be in the Seine before we reached the archbishop's house tbis night
But who is this?"
A burly figure lind loomed up through
the gloom on tbe path upon which they
were going.   As it approached, a colored lamp dangling from one of the
trees shone upon the blue and silver of
nn officer of the guards.  It was Major
de Brissac of De Catlnat's own regiment
"Hello!  Whither away?" he asked.
"To Taris, major."
"I go tbere myself within an hour.
Will you  not wait, that we may go
together?"
"I nm sorry, but I ride on a matter
of urgency."
"Very good. Good night, and a pleasant ride."
"Is he a trusty man, our friend the
major?" asked Amos Green, glancing
back.
"True as steel."
"Then I would have a word with
hlm." The American hurried back
along the way they had come, while
De Catinat stood chafing at tbis un*.
necessary delay. It was a full five
minutes before his companion joined
bim, and tbe flery blood of the French
soldier was hot with impatience.
"I think that perhaps you had best
ride into Paris at your leisure, my
friend," said he. "If I go upon the
king's service I cannot be delayed
whenever the whim takes you."
"I am sorry," answered the other
quietly. "I had something to say to
your major, and I thought that maybe
I might not see him ngain."
"Well, here are the horses," said the
guardsman as he pushed open*, the
postern gate. "Have you fed and watered them. Jaques?"
"Yes, my captain," answered the
man.
"Boot and saddle, then, friend Green,
anil we shall not draw rein again until
we see the lights of Paris."
For a mile or more the comrades
galloped along. The road was very
dark, and it was hard but for the loom
upon either side to tell where it lay.
De Catluat at least found it so, and he
peered anxiously over his horse's ears
and stooped his face to the mane in
his efforts to see his way.
"What do you make of the road?"
he asked at last.
'It looks as if a good many carriage
wheels had passed over it today."
"What!   Mon Dieu!   Do you mean to
say that you can see carriage wheels
there?"
"Certainly.   Why not?"
"Why, man, I cannot see the road at
all."
Amos Green laughed heartily. "When
you have traveled in the woods by
night as often as I have," snid he,
"when to show a light mny mean to
lose your hair, one comes to learn to
me one's eyes."
"Then you had best rido on, and I
f-liall keep just behind you. So! Hola!
What Is the matter now?"
There had been the sudden sharp
snap of something breaking, and the
American had reeled for an instant in
(lie saddle.
"It's one of my stirrup leathers.   It
has fallen."
"Can you find it?"
"Yes, but I enn rido ns well without
It.   het us push on."
"Xcry good. I can Just see you
now."
They had galloped for about five
minutes In this fashion, De Catlnat's
horse's head within a few feet of tbe
other's tall, when there was a second
snap, and the guardsman rolled out of
the saddle on to the ground. He kept
Ills grip of the reins," however, and
was up in an Instant nt his horse's
head.
"A thousand  thunders of heaven!"
he cried.   "What was it that happened
then?"
"Your leather has gone too."
"Two stirrup leathers  in  five minute..?"
"It Is not possible Hint It should be
chance," snld the American gravely,
swinging himself off his horse. "Why,
what Is this? My other leather is cut."
"And so Is hiino. I enn feel It when
I p:ihs iny hand along. Hnve you a
tinder box?   Let us strike a light."
"No, no; the man who is in the dark
Is In safety.    I  let my  enemy strike
lights."
"My rein Ih cut also."
"And so Ih mine."
"And the girth of my saddle."
"It is a wonder that we came so far
with   whole   bones.     Now,  who   has
played us this little trick?"
"Who  could  it  be  but  that  rogue
Jaques?   lie has had the horses ln his
charge. By my faitn, he shall know
what the strappado means when I see
Versailles again!"
"But why should he do It?"
"Ah, he has been set on to It He
has been a tool in the hands of those
who wished to hinder our journey."
"Very like. But they must have had
some reason behind. They knew well
that to cut our straps would not prevent us from reaching Paris, since we
could ride bareback or, for that matter, could run It If need be."
"They hoped to break our necks."
"One neck they might break, but
scarce those of two. They could not
have thought to stop us. What did
they mean, then? They could only
have meant to delay us. And wby
Bhould they wish to delay us?"
"For heaven's sake"��� broke In De
Catinat impetuously.
"Why should they wish to delay us.
then? There's only one reason that I
can see���In older to give other folk
time to get in front of us a.id stop us.
That Is It, captain. I'd Iny you a
beaver skin to a rabbit pelt thnt I'm
on the track. There's been a party of
a dozen horsemen nlong this ground
since the dew begun to fall. If wo
were delayed they would have time to
form their plnns before we came."
"By my faith, yon may be right."
laid De Catlnat thoughtfully. "What
would you propose?"
"That wo ride back, and go by some
less direct way."
"It Is Impossible. We should have
to ride bnck to tlie Meudon crossroads,

about a mile below. When we reach
it we can strike to the right nlong the
south side of thc river and so change
our course."
They mounted and rode on. Suddenly De Catinut's eye caught something In the gloom which brought a
smite to his fnce. Away in front of
them, between two dark tree clumps,
lay a vast number of shimmering, glittering yellow points, as thick as flow-
srs In a garden. They were tho lights
of Paris.
"Sec!" he cried, pointing. "Tbere is
the city, and close here must be the
St. Germain road. We shall take it,
so us to avoid any danger."
"Very good! But I should not ride
too fast, when your girth may break
nt any moment."
"Nay, come on. We are close to our
lourney's end. The St. Germain road
opens just round this corner, nud then
we shall see our wny, for the lights
will guide us."
He cut his horse with his whip, and
the two galloped together round the
curve. Next instant they were both
down In one wild heap of tossing heads
and struggling hooi's, De Catinat partly covered by his horse, and his comrade hurled twenty paces, where ho
lay silent aud motionless in tho center
of the road.
M. de Vivonne had laid his ambuscade with discretion. With a closed
carriage aud a baud of chosen ruffians
lie had left tlie palace a good half hour
before the king's messengers. Ou
reaching tlie branch rond he hnd ordered the conehnian to drive some little distance along it and had tethered
nil the horses to a fence uuder his
Ciarge. He bad then stationed one of
the band as a sentinel some distance
up the main highway to flash a light
when the two couriers were approaching. A stout cord hnd been fastened
eighteen Inches from the ground to the
trunk of a wayside sapliug, and on receiving the signal the other end was
Hed to a gatepost upon the farther
���aide. The two cavaliers conld not pos-
nlbly see it, coming as it did at the
very curve of the rond, and as a consequence tlieir horses fell heavily to the
((round und brought them down with
i hem. In nn iostnnt the dozen ruffians,
���rho had lurked in the shadow of the
'recs, sprang out upon them, sword in
hand, but there was no movement from
��� Jther of their victims.
M. de Vivounc lit a lantern nnd
rlnslied it upon the faces of the two
unconscious men. "This Is bad business, Major Despard," said he to the
man next him. "I believe that they
are both gone."
"Tut, tut! By my soul, men did not
die like that when I wns young!" answered the other, leaning forward his
(Serce, grizzled face Into the light of
the lantern. "Pass your rapier under
the third rib of the horses, De la
Touche. They will never be fit to set
hoof to ground again."
Two sobbing gasps and the thud of
their straining necks falling back to
earth told that the two steeds had
come to the end of their troubles.
"Where Is Achille Latour?" asked De
Vivonne. "He has studied medicine at
Montpeliier."
"Here I nm, your excellency. It Is
not for me to bonst, but I nm ns bandy
a mnn with a lancet as with a rnpler.

he. "Methlnks thnt It were well for mc

"Not for your life!" cried the leader.
"If he die without wound, tbey cannot

Tne man Deni over Ve Catinat ana
placed his hand upon his heart. As he
did so the soldier heaved a long sigh,
opened his eyes and gazed about him
with the face of one who knows neither
where he is nor how he came there.
De Vivonne, who had drawn his hat
down over his eyes and muffled the
lower part of his face in his mnntle.
took out his flnsk nnd poured n little
of the contents down the injured man's
throat. In an instant a dash of color
had come back into tlie guardsman's
bloodless cheeks and the light of mem
cry Into his eyes. He struggled up o*
to bis feet and strove furiously to n"-'
���way those wbo held bim. But his
bead still swam, nnd he could scarco
hold himself erect.
"I must to Paris," he gasped. "I
must to Paris. It is the king's mission.
You stop me at your peril."
"He bas no hurt save a scratch," said.
the ex-doctor.
"Then hold him fast. And first carry
the dying man to the carriage."
The lantern threw but a small ring
Of yellow light, so that when It had
been carried over to De Catinat Amos
Green was left lying In the shadow.
Now they brought the light back to
where the young-man lay. But there
was no sign of him.   He was gone.
De Vivonne caught the false doctor
by the throat and, hurling him down,
would have choked hiin upon the spot
had the others not dragged them apart.
"You lying dog!" he cried. "Is this
your skill? The mnn has fled, nnd we
arc ruined!"
"He has done It In his death struggle!" gasped thc other hoarsely. "He
cannot be far off."
"That Is true. He cannot be fnr off,"
cried De Vivonne. "He mis neither
horse nor arms. You, Despard nud
Raymond tie Caruac, guard the other,
that he play us no trick. Do you, La-
tour, and you, Turberville, ride down
the rond and wait by the south gate.
If he enter Paris at all he must come
In thnt way. If you get hlm, tie him
before you on your horse nnd bring
him to the rendezvous. In nny case, it
matters little, for ho Is a stranger, this
fellow, nnd only here by chance."
The' two horsemen rode off in pursuit of the fugitive, and De Catlnat,
still struggling desperately to escape,
was dragged down the St. Germain
road and thrust into the carriage,
which had waited at some distance
while these incidents were being enacted. Three of the horsemen rode
ahead, the coachman was curtly ordered to follow them, and De Vivonne,
having dispatched one of the band
with a note to his sister, followed after
the coach with the remainder of his
desperadoes.
The unfortunate guardsman had now
entirely recovered his senses and
found himself with a strap round his
ankles and another round his wrists, a
captive inside, a moving prison which
lumbered heavily along the country
road. He bad been stunned by the
shock of his fall, and his leg was badly
bruised by the weight of his horse.
His mind, however, pained bim more
than his body. He sank his head Into
his pinioned hands nnd stamped madly
with his feet, rocking himself to aud
fro in his despair. What a fool, a treble fool, he had been! He, an old soldier, who had seen something of war,
to walk with open eyes into sucb a
trap!
But then came a return of that common sense which lies so very closely
beneath the impetuosity of the Celt
The matter was done now, and he must
see if it could not bo mended. Amos
Green had escaped. That wns one
grand point ill his fnvor. And Amos
Green had heard tbe king's message
and realized its importance. It wns
true that he knew nothing of Paris,
but surely a man who could pick bis
way at night through the forests of
Maine would not be hulked in finding
bo well known a house as that of the
archbishop of Paris.
And then the thought of escape occurred to his mind. Might he not even
now be in time perhaps to carry his
own message? Who were these men
who had seized him? And where were
they taking him to? Full of curiosity,
he peered out of the windows.
A horseman was riding close up on
either side, but there was glass in
front of tlie carriage, and through this
he could gain some idea as to his whereabouts. The clouds had cleared now,
and the moon was shining brightly,
bathing the whole wide landscape in
its shimmering light. To tbe right lay
the open country, broad plains with
clumps of woodland and the towers of
castles pricking out from above the
groves. On the left, but far away, lay
the glimmer of Paris. They were leaving it rapidly behind. Whatever his
destination, it wns neither tho cnpltal
nor Versailles. Theu he began to count
the chnnces of escape. His sword had
been removed, and his pistols were still
In tho holsters beside his unfortunate
horse. He was unarmed, then, even if
be eould free himself, nnd his enptors
were nt least a dozen iu number. There
wero three on ahead, riding abreast
along the white moonlit road. Then
tbere wns one on each side, nnd he
should judge by the clutter of hoofs
tbat there could not be fewer than half
a dozen behind. Thnt would mnke ex-
nctly twelve, Including the coachman���
too ninny, surely, for an unarmed mnn
to hope to bailie. At the thought of the
coachman he bud glanced through the
glnss front nt the broad back of the
man, and he had suddenly in the glimmer of tho carriage lamp observed
something which struck him with horror.
Tho man was evidently desperately
wounded. It was strange Indeed thnt
he could still sit there und flick his
whip wilh so terrible nn Injury. In
the back of his great red coat, just under thc left shoulder blade, was n gash
In the cloth where some weapon had
passed, and all round was n wide patch
of dark scarlet which told its own tnle.
Nor was this nil. As he raised his
whip the moonlight shone upon his
bund, nnd De Cutinnt saw, with a
shudder, that It also was splashed and
clogged with blood. The guardsman
craned his neck to catch a glimpse of
the man's fnce, but his broad brimmed
hat was drawn low, nnd the high collar of his driving coat was raised, bo
that his features were lu the shadow.
And now they had come to a spot
where the mnlii rond ran onward, but
n smaller side track wound nway down
lhe steep slope of a hill, and so ln (he
direction of lhe Seine. The advance
guard had kept to the main rond nnd
the Iwo horsemen on either side were
trotting in the same direction when, to
DeCatinat's amazement, the carriage
suddenly swerved to one side and in
Bi. iusiuui plungeu down the steep incline, the two sto*:t horses galloping
at their topmost speed, the coachman
standing up and lashing furiously at
them and tbe clumsy old vehicle bounding along in a way which threw bim
backward and forward from one seat
to the other. Behind him he could hear
a shout of consternation from the escort and then the rush of galloping
hoofs. Fast as the coach went, Its
pursuers went faster still. The rattle
of their hoofs was at the very back,
and suddenly at one of the windows
there came into view the red, distended nostrils of a horse. Slowly it drew
forward, the muzzle, the eye, the ears,
the mane, coming into sight as the
rider still gained, and tJien nbove them
tbe fierce face of Despard and the
gleam of a brass pistol.
"At tho horse, Despard; at the horse!"
cried an authoritative voice from behind.
The pistol flashed, and the coach
lurched over as one of the horses gave
a convulsive spiing. But the driver
still shrieked nnd lashed with his whip,
while the carriage bounded onward.
But now tbe road turned a sudden
Curve,   and   there,   right  In   front   of

them, not a hundred paces aw*ay, was
,the Seine, running cold nnd still in the
moonshine. Tlie bank on either side
of the highway ran straight down without any break to the water's edge.
There was no sign of n bridge, ami a
black shadow In the center of the
stream showed where the ferryboat
was returning nfter conveying some
belated travelers across, Tbe driver
never hesitated, but, gathering np tho
reins, he urged the frightened creatures into the river. Tliey hesitated,
however, when they first felt the cold
water about their hocks, and even as
they did so one of them, wilh a low
moan, fell over upon her side. Des-
pard's bullet had found its mark. Like
a flash the coachman hurled himself
from tbe box and plunged Into tho
stream, but the pursuing horsemen
were all round hlm before this, and
hnlf a dozen hands had seized him ere
ho could reach deep water and hnd
dragged hlm to the bnnk. His broad
lint had been struck off lu the struggle,
and De Cntinnt saw his face in the
moonshine. Great heavens! It was

APPENDICITIS
PREVENTED
In Seven Out of Ten Cases by Avoiding Constipation With an Occasional Dose of Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills.
Appendicitis is the direct result of
constipation, or n cold settling in the
abdomen, starting inflammation of the
appendix. Of those 75 per cent, 'are
the result of constipation. Besides
nbdoiiiiiial soreness, nnd the colicky
pains wliich finnlly centralize in n
persistent localized pnin in tlie right
abdomen, the patient may be subject
to vomiting, the stomach upset, and
occasionally chilly sensation.
Operations are dangerous and expensive, so, naturally, it is important
to avoid those symptoms. Banish
constipation and you are safe. There
is no preparation that holds tlie confidence of tlie people for a constipation cure ns does Dr. Chase's Kidney-
Liver rills. Besides loosening the
bowels they put the liver and kidneys
in n healthy condition. It is the
combined notion of this medicine on
liver and kidneys that makes these
filtering organs effective in eliminating poisons from the system.

Another Modern  Miracle
Paralysis Permanently Cured.
The Sufferer Paralysed From Waist to Feet-Encased in Plaster ol
Paris for Nine MDnths-Dr. William-' Pink Pills Cure After Four
Doctors Had Failed���Thc Cure Vouched for by a Well Known
Clergyman.
Paralysis, no matter how slight, is
a terrible affliction, but to be para-1
lyzed from waist to the feet, to he a
helpless cripple, totally dependent
upon what others do for you, is a
condition as wretched as man could
possibly bear. Such was the state of
Mr .Allan j. McDonald, of Rice Point,
P.E.I. For over a year he was n
helpless invalid. He was paralyzed
from his wnist to his feet and for
nine months lay in bed encased in n
'duster of Paris cart. Four of the
best doctors in Prince Edward Island were unable to help him nnd he
seemed doomed to a life of misery
and despair. But hope came to him
when lie read of what Dr. Williams'
Pink PilU had done for other sufferers from paralvsis. He procured a
supply of Hie Pills and began taking
them. Gradually tliey broke the
chains of disease that bound him,
mil filled liis whole body with new
blood, life and vigor. Mr. McDonald
says:���"I am a farmer nnd in consequence have a grent deal of hard
work to do. One day while about my
work I injured my back, but at the
time 1 paid little attention to the injury and continued ray work. As
time went on, though, the pain became more severe, and I soon found
myself unable to lilt anything, no
matter how light. It was not long
before I had to stop work altogether
nnd consult n doctor. He treated me
but his treatment did not help me
and I rapidly grew worse. I hnd to
take to my bed, and in the hope that
my spine might receive strength, 1
was encased in a plaster of paris cast.
This did not help me and I could
feel the paralysis slowly creeping
over me till I wns totally paralyzed
from my waist to my feet. I lost all
control over my bowels and bladder
and my legs had no more feeling than
if they were mnde of wood. Three
other "doctors strived to cure me, but
their treatment also was a failure,
and for over eleven months I lay in
bed unable to move. Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills wore then advised nnd I
was shown testimonials of others who

them. 1 bought a supply and in less

LEARNING  TO WALK.
mafkable change in me. I was able
to get out of bed and crawl along Hie
floor on my liands and knees. Gradually my limbs became stronger. Soon
I could walk with the aid of a cane
and inside of nine months after I.had
begun Hie use of the Pills I was totally cured, and once more able to do
light work. Noiv I am as strong as
ever I was and can do my work about
the farm without the least trouble.
f think Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are
without equal, for, besides my own
case, I know of two other cases of
paralysis cured by them. Two young
*-'irls who had been cripples and
whom I advised to try Hie Pills."
In corroboration of what Mr. McDonald says, the Rev. D. MncLean of
Charlottetown, P. E, I. writes:���"I
visited Mr. McDonald many times
during liis illness. He was attended
by three or more doctors and put in
.plaster paris, and everything iningin-
i able wliich might be of benefit was
done for him without success. Ho
had lost all power of liis body from
liis waist down and I think lie was
nearly a year under treatment before
lie began to use Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills. 1 was with him the day lie lirst
moved his big toe and from thnt time
on he gradually improved and for the
last few years he has been perfectly
well. I can vouch for Hie cure Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills effected in his
cafee."
If you are sick and the trentment
you are now taking does not help
you, give Dr. Williams' Pink Pills a
fair trial. Tliey have cured thousands
after doctors and other medical treatment had hopelessly failed. These
Pills actually make new, rich, red
blood, feed the starved nerves and
bring health and strength to every
part of the body. This is why Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills cure such apparently hopeless cases as Mr. McDonald's, and it is why they have
cured thousands and thousands of
sick, discouraged people in every part
of the world. Sold by all medicine

made originally by the Spaulsh and

A story told by Mr. Sandham, the
well known American artist. Illustrates
the then state ot discipline which prevailed among the 8,000 ruffians who
bore the courtesy title of "the army."
Mr. Sandham and an Irish friend
who resided In the island were one day
watching the commandanta of the Haitian army reviewing his troops.
"Would you like to see me break up
the whole lot?" asked the Irishman.
"Of course," replied the artist
The Irishman then took five sliver
coins from his pocket and, with a loud
shout, threw them up ln the air. Instantly the whole army leaped forward
and scrambled for the money, the com-
mandantn himself securing the first
three pieces. After pocketing them
with dignity and restoring order among
his men he ordered tho Irishman to be
arrested for bringing discredit on the
army. The Irishman was sentenced to
three weeks' Imprisonment, but five
pieces of silver and a bottle of rum secured his instant release.

BLACK  FOREST CUSTOMS.
Youngest Son Inherits Property and
Cares For the Old Folks.
The pensunt farms of the Black forest are hauded down from father to
son In a direct line, often dating back
400 years, says Antiquary.
There Is no division as In France.
All falls to the heir, only here it is not
the eldest, but the youngest Bon, who
Inherits. It ls rare that a bur (peasant) dies as reigning head. When he
gets ou In years he abdicates In order to end his days In tbe leibgedinge-
haus (dower house), which stands beside each hof (steading).
That he does so in favor of his
youngest son is very sensible. Were
It the elder he would have no peace,
for ns soon as he married he would try
to Induce his parents to retire just at
an age when power ls sweetest and
best exercised. For this reason the
practical farmers of bygone generations decided to hand over the succession to the youngest, since when Benjamin Is a full grown man father Jacob
ls old and glad to rest.
This law of Inheritance goes by the
name of vortel. Should the heir of his
own free will desire to resign In favor
of his elder brother the latter must
buy the property from him. In such a
case the younger may be termed a
kind of Esau.
Birds That Fight Eagles.
In Foula, one of the Shetland Islands, the natives make a business of
rearing skau gulls In order to rid the
Island of the eagles that congregate
there aud commit many depredations.
The magnificent red sandstone cliffs
that skirt the northwestern coast became a favorite haunt of the eagles,
and In this Inaccessible spot they increased so rapidly that they became a
terror to the farmers and fishermen
who dwell ou this Isolated spot The
skau gulls are also strong and fierce
and tbe Inveterate foes of the eagle.
In battle the gulls are nearly always
victorious, and so the Inhabitants of
Foula hit upon the novel plan of feeding nnd caring for the skau gulls,
which, though formidable to their
feathered enemies, are very peaceful
and docile when brought ln contact
with man.
A Delicious Custard.
The recipe for this delicate dessert
has been hauded down In my family
for many generations: Into each individual custard cup put the yolk of pne
egg, add one heaping teaspoonful of
sugar, two gratings of nutmeg nnd five
tablespoonfuls of sweet milk. Incorporate thoroughly and set the cups in a
pan of hot water. Bake ln a moderate
oven until firm. When cool, cover with
a meringue, using the whites of the
eggs for this purpose, and allow one
tablespoonful. of powdered sugar to the
white of each egg. Through the very
tiptop of each suowy mound drop a
teaspoonful of orange marmalade.���Delineator.
Ins and Outs,
"What's that noise?" asked the visitor In the apartment house.
"Probably some one In the dentist's
apartments on the floor below getting

"But this seemed to come from the

"Ah, then it's probably the Pojileys'
baby getting a tooth ln."
What They Said.
Maybe It didu't mean just what to
tbo casual listener It seemed.to mean,
but this Is what the farmer was overheard to say to his wife as they looked
over tho market reports ln the dally
paper:
"Well, M'rla, hogs Is qp, an' tbat

A strident laugh arrested bis operations and lie beheld by the moonlight Hie novelist silting up in bed,
liis sides aching with laughter.
"What is it that makes you merry?" demanded the burglar.

A Cure for Rheumatism.���A painful and persistent form of rheumatism is caused by impurities in the
blood, the result of defective action
of the liver and kidneys. The blood
becomes tainted by Hie introduction
of uric acid which causes much pain
in the tissues and in the joints. Parmelee's Vegetable Pills arc known to
have effected ninny remarkable cures
and tlieir use is strongly recommended. A trial of them will convince
anyone of tlieir value.
An old Scotchman, not feeling very
well, called upon a well known doctor, who gave hiin instructions as to
diet" nml exercise and rest. Among
other things lie advised the patient to
abstain from all forms of spirits.
"Do as I say," lie said cheerfully,
"and you'll soon feel better."
Tlie Scotchman rose Bilcntly nnd
wns nbout to withdraw when Hie doctor detained him to mention Hie all-
important topic of the fee. "My advice-will cost you ,*.2," lie snid.
"Aw, mebbe," snid the old Scotcli-
mnn, "but I'm nae gaun to tek yer
advice."

opal was long ago promised to anybody who could discover If. It liiy hidden away, so the old fortune teller*
used to say, at the place "where the
sunlight and the .moonlight joined"
each other, and whoever could find
tbat spot would be rewarded by a
quantity of large, beautiful opals. After a long search for the place "where
