economical basis.
Now, boys, it won't do. If you want
to put up a good thow against the visiting hose teams you've got to get in and
"drill." Of course vou have enviable
reputations as (Ire-lighters and all that
soit of thing, but your reputations will
look as sick as a skinned jack-rnbbit if
you don't make a decent show on Labor
Day. It's up to you. Stop chin wagging
and hustle some. Let's see the hose
carls doing a few stunts next week.

an Mot, the only laundry in Sandon.
There is an abundance of good water
for household, laundry end garden,
which is one of the best. House is perfectly secure from Bnowslides. Also a
first-class hen-house stockod with selected winter layers, which gave two dozen eggs per day all last winter. Hens
have access to open ground. Very convenient for wood, with good cellar for
same. The price of tho whole is a
startler,   Get interested and see White.
Fire-warden Strathearn passed through
Sandon to-day. Mr. Strathearn is suffering from a sprained ankle sustained

Train Arrangements For Our
Labor Day Celebration
Are Ideal
A Special Ball Train.
The dan-era from the lake towns who
are intending to lake in the big Celebration Ball will appreciate the efforts of
the committee to make train arrangements compatible with comfort. For
the rooming after the ball a special
C.P.R. train has been chartere 1 to take
lakesides back for boat connection. By
this arrangement visitors will be able
to gyrate to the dulcet strains of the
" Home Sweet Home " waltz, and then
refresh themselves with several hours'
sleep before train time. The Committee
have been put to great expense chartering two special trains, but it goes without saying that their enterprise will be
appreciated by citizens of New Denver,
Silverton, Slocan, Rosebery and other
lake points. The auditorium of the
Opera House i. unquestionably one of
the mobt capacious and comfortable for
dancing purposes to be found in the
Interior.
Sandon'a Labor Dav Celebration is an
assured financial success! The amount
of money required to meet the estimate
of the committee is even now guaranteed, and all that will be necessary to
complete the most enjoyable day in tho
history of the camp is fine weather. So
far as train and boit facilities aro
concerned to convey the crowds to the
great silver-lead camp, they are ideal.
A full days' enjoyment will be obtained.
The large contingent from Kaslo will
leave the K. & S. <hp>t at 8 a.m. accompanied by the Kaslo brasB band and
the hose team. It will be a record crowd
from Kaslo. The K. & S. officials have
done handsome for the occasion. A
special rate of single tare for tho round
trip has been announced from the
Queen City and all way points. The
return train will leave Sandon at 7 p.m.
Those staying overnight for the Grand
Ball will bo able to return the following morning.
The arrangements made by the C.P.R.
aro as near perfect as we can conceive.
An excursion steamer will leave Slocan
City with a big crowd at 5 a.m., calling
at all way points to Silverton, where
hundreds moro will embark. At New
Denver the crowd will bo a g'gantic
and happy one. Sandon emptied itself
for tho celebrations of the two last
named towns, and now they are boosting ours. At Rosebery where train
connection will made, more will join
the holiday making throng. Three
Forks" will close the town for tho day,
and Moir'a mule will bo left in charge.
The roturn train will leave Sandon at
6.20 p in. and connection for lake points
will be made with the steamer tit Rosebery. A special train will leave Sandon
for Denver Siding and Rosebery the following morning to suit the convenience
of the crowd attending the ball.

The Sandon School Trustees aro to be
congratulated on obtaining a teacher of
some experience and boiling a " life
certificate," when there is a shortage of
teachers with such qualifications in
British Columbia.
Great interest ia displayed in Prof.
Fletcher's lecture on " Orchard Insect
Pests," and copies of the lecture are
selling like hot rakes. Should anyone
l.cture on the " White Plague," a hand
ful of people turn out. The intelligent
support, both moral and financial, of
the people towards building and maintaining a sanatorium for the prevention
of tuberculosis in British Columbia .is
more important. Why will people remain luk-warm on thia all-important
question ?
What would not tourists give to see
Towgood's 30-string pack-tram start
with sappliea for a mine? It heals
going to see a lump of ice on the summit of a mountain on Kootenay lake
which Kaslo and Nelson are scrapping
about. 'Pshaw ! glacier nothing. One
of the residents of Snndon threatens to
demolish it in a whisky and soda the
first hot day. Now, if tourists are looking for something novel and exhilarating
wc recommend any morning at daybreak
when the frost is on the pumpkin and the
mule-skinners have irrigated unwisely
the previous night. But, if it is glaciers
they want, and n fu*e all worthless
su' stituti p, they must go to New Denver, where they have one specially
adapted to the rcquirepients of tourists
A 1 ig advantage from the point of many
iB���that it can be seen from the bar of
Count Siege's hotel.
We celebrate the first anniversary of
our birth neit week. A year old ! That
sounds big, doesn't it ? We feel us
though we had been here a century
when we soliloquize upon the tionhle
we have ribbed Up, Thank goodness
our conscious is normal. Say I how's
yours ? Please remit that two-spot for
a birthday present. We are laying in a
complete and well-assorted line of
troubles for the new year. Get in on
the ground floor and have two dollars'
worth. We are also likely to run a
social and personal (very personal)
column, and if that proves unsuccessful we shall commit suicide or go to
live at Nelson. It's immaterial which,

Mining and Smelting.
The announcement that the management of the Hall mines Smelter has
disposed, or arranged to dispose, of its
supply of ore now on hand and is taking, stock of the situation before announcing its policy for tho future will
cause no surprise, says the Nelson Daily
Canadian. The decision has baen
expected by mining men In Kootenay
for many months, and hints have been
given to the public from  time  to time.
When the Siiver King mine was
closed down a few years ago, the Hall
Mines Smelter became dependent for iis
operation entirely upon custom ores.
The use for which it had been designed
was gone. Ita sole pin pose had been
the reduction of the ores of the Silver
King, which was and is, the chief property of the company.
With tho Boundary dislrict served by
three large reduction plants and Ross-
land ore treated at Trail and North port
the local smelter'e only source of supply were the Slocan anil Yinir districts
and a small part of East Kootenay.
The character of those sonrrcsof supply
constitutes Ihe explanation of the
chequered history of the smeller, and
probably of the decision just announced.
For the last .even years, mining in
the Slocan has been in a depressed condition. For a while it was explained
by the low price of lead; after that had
been offset, first by the government
bounty, nnd later by the advance in the
price, the reason assigned for continued inactivity, was tho high freight and
treatment charges. These have since
been reduced to a figure at which no
reasonable complaint can be mad* The
only explanation now available is pending litigation. Probably all the causes
mentioned have been co.itributary factors in retarding the devo'opment of the
Slocan ns a mining district, But probably the chief reason is that the first
strikes of silver which made the Slocan
famous were near the surface and soon
exhausted. The real wealth, the only
possible source of permanent wealth
is at depth. Iu one mine only, the
Rambler-Cariboo, has the necessary
work been undertaken to reach the main
ore bodies of the mine. Beginnings have
been made in several otheis. ' But in
the great majority the beginning of work
on a large scale has yet to bo made.
Whether it is that tho owners, as a rule
have not the means of undertaking such
work, or lack faith in the valuo of their
properties, the present effect is the same.
The result is a ridiculously small and
irregular output from a distiict containing more partly developed properties of
great promise, than any other district
of the game size in Canada.
Such has been the character of the
chief source of ore supply of the Hall
Mines Smelter. The first necessity in
smelter operation is economy in handling and treating, and for the ex* rcise
of economy it is essential that tho manager Bhould know from month to montl
how much ore and of what character he
can count upon. That knowledge has
never been available to the management
of the Hall Mines Smelter since its has
been engaged in thc treatment of custom
ores.
There are, however, two hopeful- features of the situation. The Silver King
mine, on ihe testimony of several who
know it well, has yet many years of life.
Its ores must be reduced at tho local
plant. The Slocan, according, not to
chronic optimists* but to men wbo have
known and believed in the distiict
through good times and bail, is on the
eve of a revival, which will see all its
developed properties back on the shipping list with many additions. If their
hopes are realized the element of uncertainly ns to the oro supply which has
handicapped the smeller management
so heavily and persistently may be eliminated.

CHAPTER XXJH*.
lALQOa started off at once fo?
the castle, his heart singing.
In the darkness of the night
he kissed the message which
had come to him from "her highness."
The envelope had been closed with the
official seal of Yetive, princess of
Qrauatark, and was sacred to the eyes
of any one save the man to whom It
was directed. The words It contained
were burned deep In his brain:
You are ordered to report for duty ln
the castle. Come at once. Her highness
haa sent an official command to Colonel
Quinnox. Count Marlanx has been here.
You are not expected to desert until you
have seen me. There ls an underground
passage somewhere. B.
Baldos went alone and swiftly. The
note to Colonel Quinnox had been Imperative. He was to serve as an inner
guard until further orders. Some one,
It was reported, had tried to enter Miss
Calhoun's room from the outside during the rainstorm of the previous night,
and a special guard was to be stationed near the door. All of this was unknown to Baldos, but he did not ask
for any explanations.
He was halfway to the castle when
the sharp report of a gun startled
him. A bullet wblzzed close to his earl
Baldos broke into a crouching run, but
did not change his course. He knew
that tbe shot was Intended for him and
that Its mission waa to prevent bim
from reaching the caatle. The attendants at the castle door admitted him,
panting and excited, and he was taken
immediately to the enchanted boudoir
of the princess, which but few men
were fortunate enough to enter. There
were three women In the room.
"I am here to report, your highness,"
said he, bowing low before the real
princess, with a smile upon his flushed
face.
"You are prompt," said the princess.   "What have you to report, sir?"
"That nn attempt has just been
made to kill a member of the castle
guard," he coolly answered.
"Impossible!"
"I am quite certain of It, your highness. The bullet almost clipped my
ear."
"Good heavens!" gasped the listeners. Then they eagerly plied him with
more agitated questions than he could
answer.
"And did you not pursue the
wretch?" cried the   princess.
"No, your highness. I was commanded to report to you at once. Only the
success of the assassin could have
made me���well, hesitate," said he
calmly.   "A soldier has but to obey."
"Do you think there was a deliberate attempt to kill you?" asked the
Countess Dagmar. Beverly Calhoun
was dumb with cousternntlon.
"I cannot sny, madame. Possibly It
was an accidental discharge. One
Bhould not make accusations unsupported. If you have no Immediate
need of my services, your highness, I
will ask you to grant me leave of absence for half an hour. I have a peculiar longing to investigate." There
was a determined gleam in his eyes.
"No, no!" cried Beverly. "Don't you
dare to go out there again. You are
to stay right here in the castle, sir.
We have something else for you to do.
It was that awful old Marlanx who
���hot at you.   He"��� .
"I left General Marlanx In Colonel
Qulnnox's quarters, Miss Calhoun," interposed Baldos grimly. "He could
not have fired tbe shot.   Far two or
three nights, your highness, I have
been followed nnd dogged with humiliating persistence by two men wearing
the uniforms of castle guards. They
do not sleep at the barracks. May I
ask what I have done to be submitted
to such treatment?" There was a
trace of poorly concealed Indignation
in his voice.
"I assure you that this ls news to
me," said Yetive iu amazement.
"I am being watched as if I were a
common thief," he went on boldly.
"These men are not your agents; they
are not the agents of Graustark. May
I be permitted to say that they are
spies set upon me by a man who has
art object ln disgracing me? Who that
man ls I leave to your royal conjecture."
"Marlanx?"
"Yes, your highness. He bears me a
deadly grudge and yet he fears me. I
know full well that he and his agents
have built a strong case against me.
They are almost ready to close ln upon
me, and they will have false evidence
so craftily prepared that even my truest friends may doubt my loyalty to
you and to the cause I serve. Before
God, I have been true to my oath. I am
loyal to Graustark. It was a sorry
day when I left the valley and"���
"Oh," cried Beverly piteously, "don't
say that!"
"Alas, Miss Calhoun, It Is true," said
he sadly. "I am penned up here where
I cannot fight back. Treason is laid
against me. But, beyond all this, I
have permitted my loyalty to mislead
my ambition. I have aspired to something I can cherish, but never possess.
Better that I never should have tasted
of the unattainable than to have the
cup withdrawn just as its sweetness
begins to intoxicate."
He stood before them, pale with suppressed emotion. The women of Graustark looked Involuntarily at Beverly,
who sat cold and voiceless, staring at
tbe face of the guard. She knew what
he meant; she knew that something
was expected of ber. A word from her
and he would understand that he had
not tasted of the unattainable. In one
brief moment she saw that she had deliberately led him on, that she had encouraged him, that sho actually had
proffered him the cup from which he
had begun to sip the bitterness. Pride
and love were waging a conflict ln this
hapless southern girl's heart. But she
.was...silent.   She..could not say the

"I think I know what you mean, Baldos," said Yetive, seeing that Beverly
would not Intervene. "We are sorry.
No one trusts to your honor more than
I do. My husband believes In you. I
will confess that yon nre to be arrested
as a spy tomorrow. Tonight you are
to serve as a guard ln the castle. This
should prove to you that I have unbounded faith ln you. Moreover, I believe In you to the extent that I should
not be afraid to trust you If you were
to go out Into the world with every
secret which we possess. You came
here under a peculiar stress of circumstances, not wholly of your own
volition. Believe me, I am your
friend."
"I shall revere your highness forevor
for those words," said ho simply. His
eyes went hungrily to Beverly's averted face and then assumed a careless
gleam which Indicated that he had resigned himself to the Inevitable.
"I am constrained to nsk you one
question, sir," went on the princess.
"You are not the common goat hunter
you assume. Will you tell me In confidence who you really are?" The others held their breath. He hesitated for
a moment.
"Will It suffice If I say that I am an
unfortunate friend and advocate of
Prince Dantan? I have risked everything for his sake, and I fear I have
lost everything. I have failed to be of
service to him, but through no fault of
mine.   Fate has been against me."
"You are Chrlstobal!" cried Dagmar
eagerly.
He gave her a startled glance, but
offered no denial. Beverly's face was
a study. If he were Chrlstobal, then
what of the game warden's daughter?
"We shall question you no further,"
said Yetive. "You enlisted to serve
Miss Calhoun. It ls for her to command you while you are here. May
God be with you to the end. Miss Calhoun, will you tell him what his duties are for tonight?   Come, my dear."
Yetive and Dagmar walked slowly
from the room, leaving Beverly and
her guard alone.
"I nm at your service, Miss Calhoun,"
he said easily. His apparent Indifference stung her Into womanly revolt.
"I was a fool last night," she said abruptly.
"No; I was the fool. I have been the
fool from the beginning. You shall not
blame yourself, for I do not blame you.
It has been a sweet comedy, a summer
pastime. Forget what I may have said
to you last night, forget what my eyes
may have said for weeks and weeks."
"I shall never forget," she said. "You
deserve the best in the world. Would
that I could give It to you. You have
braved many dangers for my sake. I
shall not forget. Do you know that we
were watched last night?"
"Watched?" he cried Incredulously.
"Oh, fool that I nm! I might have
known. Aud I have subjected you toto���don't tell me that harsh things have
been said to you, Miss Calhoun!" He
was deeply disturbed.
"General Marlanx saw you. He has
threatened me, Baldos"���
"I will kill him! What do I care for
thc consequences? He shall pay dearly
for"���
"Stop! Where are you going? You
are to remain here, sir, and take your
commands from me. I don't want you
to kill him. They'd hang you, or something just as lind. He's going to be
punished, never fear!" Baldos smiled
In spite~*ef his dismay. It was Impossible to face this confident champion
ln petticoats without catching her enthusiasm.   "What have you done with
���with thnt rose?" she asked suddenly,
flushing and diffident. Her eyes glistened with embarrassment.
"It lies next my heart. I love it," he
said bravely.
"I think I'll command you to return
it to me," vaguely.
"A command to be disobeyed. It is
in exchange for my feather," he smiled
confidently.
"Well, of course, If you are going to
be mean about��� Now, let me see," she
said confusedly, "what are your duties
for tonight? You are to stand guard
ln the corridor. Once ln awhile you will
go out upon tlie balcony and lake a
look. You see, I am ufraid of some
one. Oh, Baldos, what's the use uf my
trifling like this? You are to escape
from Edelweiss tonight. That is the
whole plan���the whole Idea in u nutshell. Don't look like that. Don't you
want to go?" Now she was trembling
with excitement.
"I do not want to leave you." he
cried eagerly. "It would bo cowardly.
Marlanx would understand that you
gave aid nnd sanction. You would be
loft to face the charges he would make.
Don't you see, Beverly? You would be
Implicated; you would be accused
Why did you not let me kill him? No;
I will not go!" Neither noticed the
name by which be bad called her.
"But I insist!" she cried weakly.
"You must go away from me. I���I
coiniunud you to"���
"Is it because you want to drive me
out of your life forever?" he demanded, sudden understanding coming to
him.
"Don't put it that way," she murmured.
"Is it because you care for me that
you want me to go?" he insisted, drawing near. "Is it because you fear the
love I bear for you?"
"Love! You don't really��� Stop!
Remember where you are, sir! You
must not go on with it, Baldos. Dou't
come a step nearer. Do go tonight!
It ls for the best. I have been awfully
wicked In letting It run on as it has.
Forgive me; please forgive me," she
pleaded. He drew back, pale and hurt.
A great dignity settled upon his face.
His dark eyes crushed her with their
quiet scorn.
"I understand, Miss Calhoun.   The

That is enough.   I shall go tonight."
The girl was near to surrender. Had
It not been for the persistent fear that
her proud old father might suffer from
her willfulness, she would have thrown
down the barrier and risked everything
ln the choice. Her heart was crying
out hungrily for the love of this tall,
mysterious soldier of fortune.
"It ls best," she murmured finally.
Later on she was to know the meaning
of the peculiar smile he gave her.
"I go because you dismiss me, not
because I fear an enemy. If you
choose to remember me at all, be just
enough to believe that I am not a
shameless coward."
"You are brave and true and good,
and I am a miserable, deceitful wretch,"
she lamented. "You will seek Ravone
and the others?"
"Yes; they are my friends. They
love my poverty. And now, may It
please your highness, wheu nm I to go
forth, and in what garb? I should no
longer wear the honest uniform of a
Graustark guard."
"Leave It to me. Everything shall be
arranged. You will be discreet? No
one Is to know that I am your"���
"Rest nsaured, Miss Calhoun. I hnve
a close mouth." And he smiled contemptuously.
"I agree with you," said she regretfully. "You know how to hold your
tongue." He laughed harshly. "For
once In a way will you answer a question?"
"I will not promise."
"You say that you are Dantnn's
friend. Is It true that he Is to marry
the daughter of the Duke of Matz,
Countess Iolanda?"
"It has been so reported."
"Is she beautiful?"
"Yes; exceedingly."
"But Is he to marry her?" she Insisted, she knew not why.
"How should I know, your highness?"
"If you cnll me 'your highness' ngaln
I'll despise you!" she flared miserably.
"Another question: Is it true that the
young Duke Chrlstobal fled because his
father objected to his marriage with a
game warden's daughter?"
"I have never heard so," with a touch
of hauteur.
"Does he know that the girl is dead?"
she asked cruelly. Baldos did not answer for a long time. He stared at her
steadily, his eyes expressing no emotion from which ahe could Judge him.
"I thiuk he Is ignorant of that calamity, Miss Calhoun," he said. "With
your permission I shall withdraw.
There ls nothing to be gained by delay." It was such a palpable affront
that she shrank within herself and
could hnve cried.
Without answering, she walked un
steadily to the window and looked out
Into the night. A mist came into her
eyes. For many minutes she remained
there, striving to regain control of her
emotions. All this time she knew that
he was standing just where she had
left him, like a statue, awaiting her
command. At last she faced him resolutely.
"You will receive Instructions as to
your duties here from the guard at
the stairs. When you hear the hall
clock strike the hour of 2 In the morning go Into the chapel, but do not let
any one see you or suspect. You know
where It ls. The door will be unlocked."
"Am I not to see you again?" he nsked, aud she did not think him properly
depressed.
"Yes," she answered after a pause
tbat seemed like an eternity, and he
went quietly, silently away.

Boycott British Goods.
The Mullahs of Afghanistan have
started a boycott of British goods.
At a meeting of Mullahs, held at
Kabul, the Ameer was denounced foi
his liberal tendencies, and especially
for bringing foreign innovations inti
the country.
The Mullahs resolved that it wai
unlawful for Mahometans to pur
chase foreign goods, as being ngains'
the interests of Afghanistan. Thev
especially condemned the use of Brit

Ameer's eldest son, the Sirdar Innya

TEA   TABLE   TRIMMINGS.
Little Dainties to Pique the Appetite
at Afternoon Affairs.
Since tin* custom of taking afternoon
leu is not only well established in this
country, but now lu danger of becoming an untimely feast It Is astonishing
to note the numerous little dainties
and extra trimmings which are being
served to pique nnd delight the appetite. It is uo lunger merely a cup of
ten and :. slice of thin bread and butter thnt may be expected between 4
and r>:"10 o'clock, ,1am bas been added
to the list and often hot Scotch sconea
und Knglish muffins. Beside the ten
table proper there stnuds usually n sort
of rack table, pyramidal ln shape aud
having three shelves, one above the
other aud round like plates. Each one
Is covered with uttractlve china holding some fascinating biscuit or cuke.
Jam of one or two kinds ls suggested
In between tbem, and after the hostess
has ascertained which Jam and biscuit
her guest prefers she spreads It for
him herself before passing it on n small
plate. This little attention appears
very gracious.
Among the biscuits those of "health
food" reputation ure often found nnd
the jam Is spread over them to add to
their somewhat questionable tnstluess.
Other hostesses have fine, small, flat
wafers of whole wheat covered witli
chocolate In their own kitchens before
serving. They arc then above reproach to pass with tea. The biscuit
Itself ls digestible, the chocolate tasty
and UOUl'lshlng. Biscuits covered witb
cheese, on the contrary, whilo highly
agreeable) to the taste, arc avoided bj
those hypercareful about their diet.
Strawberry Jam Is undoubtedly the
favorite for spreading on English muffins. Blackberry jnm or guava Is
chosen to spread on the health food
biscuits, especially those made of graham or whole wheat. Scotch scones
are spread only through the middle
with fresh butter. These scones are
very similar to old fashioned soda biscuits and are Invariably served hot.
In size tbey nre little larger than a
quarter of a dollar. The number that
some peop'e can make disappear ls
therefore ruadlly countenanced.
Wnfer toast finds a place at afternoon
ten. In making It the bread Is cut ns
thin ns possible, and it Is then toasted
until extremely crisp. It ls eaten dry
or with jam, but It is never buttered.
When cake appears at afternoon tea,
the fashion rages for a rich pound cake
showing through It mnny large raisins.
Europeans Invariably refer to It as
"American plum cuke" and regard It
as n specialty of this country. In entertaining foreigners, therefore, it Is
perhaps the most acceptable cake to
offer.
TOUGHS  OF  PARIS.
They Are Known as "Apaches" and
Work In Gangs.
Les Apaches���
They work in gangs. In the underworld their associations are complete
and distinct Fame has come to them
���to the gang of Bebert of Montparno,
of Gegene of the Courtllle, the Green
Cravats, the Costands of the Vlllette,
the Mont-en-l'air of the Batlgnolles.
Against these bands the police war In
vain. Tbey wage their battles In open
day���for some "mome" that Bebert has
stolen from Gegene. A band comes
down from the heights of Belleville or
of Charonne and raids a peaceful quarter���a home going cab Is surrounded,
tbe passenger stabbed through the window and robbed. They prey on the
public. Band wars upon bund. ^There
are nightly duels on the fortifications
or under the bridges���when the Beau
Totor meets Poigne d'Acier, knife to
knife, in a savage and not unloyal way.
Young nil, from sixteen to twenty-two,
rarely older. Where do they come
from? Everywhere. They grow on
the pavements of Paris, along the gutters���foundlings or deserted children,
sons perhaps of that laboring class
which Is on the edge of crime and beggary. The life of the Apache ls short,
but for every one sent to the Jail or
the guillotine two stand rendy at the
door of the slums. They used to haunt
xhe den of the Pere Lunette.���From

There have been many strange things

An Old Proverb Verified Many Times
and Oft.
"Never trouble trouble till trouble
troubles you" is a very neat and very
true proverb. How many of us almost court unhuppiness by meeting it
halfway���nay. more, a large number
of us positively welcome it because It
gives us a grievance and we like to
feel like martyrs. There is a sort of
feeling of glorious heroism in suffering
"untold mental anguish" that tugs at
the heartstrings and makes all the
world look black, especially when we
take n frieud into our confidence and
he or sbe condoles with us.
But we must all learu to keep our
troubles to ourselves and not tell them
to all nnd sundry. True heroism lieu
in patiently bearing our worries nnd
anxieties in solitude. Bury your sorrow in the depths of your own heart
Things thus securely covered are often cured without a scar, but when
they nre once published and confided
to meddling friends there is uo cud to
tbe trouble they may cause.  _
If your feelings arc Injured, don't
brood over your poor wounded self.
Rather prny fur that poor misguided
sister who slighted you. Perhaps sho
may have done so quite unwittingly.
Perhaps some of ua have husbands,
brothers and sisters who ure very unkind, who wound us cruelly by bitter
words, angry retorts and much selfishness.
If this snd state of things exists, we
must keep it to ourselves even if It Is
only for the sake of those who offend
us, for by taking any one luto our confidence we must necessarily divulge to
our friends the shortcomings of our
fellows. To do this Is adverse to nil
laws of Christianity. We must be
charitable; we must patiently bear
with those who cause us stabs of pain:
we must ask that their hearts be softened and thnt they may be brought to
see with n true, clear nilud tbe misery
tliey bring to others by their unruly
tongues. Best assured that those wha
utter bitter words and unklud criticisms have moments of regret und remorse and pangs of conscience. Were
the truth known, they actually suffer
far more than the recipients of their
busty nnd ill judged attacks.
After all. troubles are transient
things, aud when they are all passed
nnd sorrow Is outside the door what a
comfort It is to say:
"No oue ever knew until it wns over
with us."
MEN  THE   BETTER  COOKS.
They Pay Heed to Perfection of Details, Says an Authority.
M. Bscoffler, the great chef, say men
are better cooks than women because
they watch trifles with thoroughness
and Insist upon having ull needed ingredients, while women will manage
with whatever they have at bund. The
average woman lias hud always to
make out with what wns handy and
has not had the management of the
purse strings. She bus not cooked for
profit, but from duty. When men cook
they ure either In camp or do it for n
lurk to concoct some chafing dish
llllnty they hnve had at a club or they
ire professlonnl cooks.
Women In homes know the fulling-**
uf their servants, nud any house mother
will tell you that she bus always taken
the overdone muffins and the piece of
streaky cuke, the nicked cup aud the
wing of the chicken to hide failures oi
to make the family contented. Give
women of like intelligence the same Incentive and the same training and supplies to do with and then see in time
what kind of cooks women will become.

NERVES GAVE OUT,
ALMOST IN DESPAIR
Two Severe Cases of Nervous Prostration With Which
Doctors Could Do Nothing Cura_l By
Dr. Chase's Nerve Food,
Mr. William Graham, Atwood, I
Ont., writes: "My wife bad been ill
for some time with nervous prostra-:
tion, and we bad two of the best doctors we could get, but neither of them
did her any good. She gradually became worse, could not sleep, and lost
energy and interest in life. She was
a1 most giving up in despair, when a
friend advised a trial of Dr. Chase's
Nerve Food.
"From tbe first box of this preparation my wife used we noticed an improvement, and after using six boxes
she is completely cured, and as well
as ever she was���eats well and sleeps
well, and feels fully restored. I cannot say too much in praise of this
valuable medicine, and um satisfied
that my wife owes her life to the use

Raises Deer    For    Market.
Only about a couple of miles from
Stella is one of the most unique industries in the state. Browsing
about in perfect contentment in a
deer park is a herd of beautiful deer.
This deer park consists of fifteen
acres, and at present there are seven
deer on the premises, eleven having
already been sold this season. The
young deer are sold each year, and
bring $35 a pair. They are shipped
in August or September. A Mr. Hose-
berry lias been raising and selling
deer for fourteen years, having as
many as twenty-five on hand at one
time. Tbe herd usually doubles in
number each year.
Occasionally, if frightened suddenly or tempted by . thc "call of tho
wild," an older deer will scale his
stockade and head for the bills. But
he always comes back home, apparently penitent.���Kansas City Journal.

In an interesting paper M. Moure

took of bis voice.
At night Nero lay on his back with
a thin plato of lead on his stomach.
He purged himself with enemas and
, emetics. He abstained from fruits
i and all dishes which could hurt his
1 voice. In order not to damage the
purity of its sound he ceased haranguing the soldiers and the senate.
He attuched to his service an olli-
cer specially deputed to take care _i
his voice. He only talked in the
presence of this singular official; who
warned him when he spoke too loudly or forced his voice, and if tho
emperor, carried away by smile sudden fit of passion, did not listen lo
his remonstrances it was his duty

A police court story which is said
to illustrate "the indifference of the
average chicken to good advice" wai
told recently at Kingston, England
when a carter was charged witli stealing a fowl.
"I am guilty of stealing tbe fowl,"
he admitted. "It wus eating the
corn out of my horse's nosebag, and
I said to it, 'If you dou't go away
I'll make you,' and struck it with the
whip. When I saw it was dead I
put it in tho wagon; I didn't know
who owned  it."
"I judge it was the chicken's
fault," remarked the prosecutor,
"and I'll not press tho charge
against tho man."

Success of the  Dominion  Pavilion At
the  Dublin   Exhibition.
The Canadian Pavilion, and its contents, at the D ilin Exhibition is an
*"*p essive display, as an illustration of
the great industrial, agricultural and
mineral resources, as well aB possi-
b':ties of Canada, yet in the initial
stage of its development. The scheme
*}f decoration of the interior of the
Cin-irlian Pavilion is beautiful in con
eeption and of artistic design, in
which the corn, wheat and grasses of
the country, with landscape of Northwest farms and ranches in the back-
���.rn-rif* thnt lends a beautiful effect
and a source 6f study for the European.
Tho refrigerating machinery in the
"������litre of the large hall is kept in con-
tiimnl nnorntion and of special interest to the visitors. Tt is utilized for
th" "������""""rvation of butter and other
oerisheble products on exhibition.
A unique feature in the Pavilion is
*,**,e ���**,.,1..] nf n Canadian farmhouse
and v*i*yI. entirely constructed in butter, which is n marvellous piece of
work. The house, barn, trees, water
o'tpfta cows grazing, fowl and little
chickens nre entirely made of butter,
and nre beautiful in their artistic
construction. Wreaths of roses form
the f'-nmo-wnrk, the shape and curve
of each pet.i] being brought out with
nn c--netitude that suggests the real
article.
The nnnornmie view of the fauna of
the country is another of the many artistic features of the Canadian Pn-
vi'i*->n. Here nre shown the settler nnd
the various stneos of progress made
by him. ommencincr with the first,
to his tenth yenr, together with fine
specimens of b"ffalo, moose, bear,
beaver, wolf and a variety of other
animals of the Canadian wild, con-
s-IHntii*-' n verv interesting museum.
Tbe exhibit also contains n lnvish display of minerals, fruit products, forest oroducts and agriculture.
There nre also a number of pictures
executed by means of n new art of
phntifi-nphy on canvns, which present
various stages of the Canadian farm
life, mill industries, etc., that are
turned into transparent effects at
night, nnd prominently before the
gnze of the visitor is the life-size
pninting of Kinc Edward nnd his Royal consort, while opposite at either
side of a large advertising card of
Canada's greatness nnd progress nre
portraits of Sir Wilfrid Laurier, Sir
John A. Mncdnnuld, Earl Grey, and

The --".i-mds in front and at nil sid^s
of the Canadian Pavilion are splendidly laid out in garden plots and arranged with Canndian plants, flowers,
etc., that give the surroundings a
most pleasing appearance, and at once
catch the eye of the visitor.

"One day I happened to read some

and after taking them for a week
I noticed a change for the better.
So I kept it up, and after using
twelve bottles I was perfectly cured.
"I also gave the medicine to my

On maps of German East Africa the

Cuba's Forts Are Now Show Places.
The forts of Cuba are interesting
from a historic p^lut of view us wol,
as for the purpose to which they huve
been put since lhe establishment of tho
republic. During the early days of
Spanish rule these l'orta were some
times called upon to defend tbe Island
from foreign invasion and often Trom
pirates, but during tbe last fifty years
tbey were generally used as prisons
for the custody of natives who may
have violated the law or Incurred the
displeasure of the authorities. Today
they are mere shjw places, although
some are occupied by the constabulary
of tbe island, who are known as the
rural guard. These peace officers were
organized lu 1800 and were chiefly recruited from the ranks of the Cuban
army. Many of those youug men aro
now stationed nt forts where tlieir fathers met death in their struggle for

sentence? it appears to be tbe guillotine, which is employed publicly ln

in two cantons of Switzerland. The
gallows comes next In the running and
Is favored publicly In Austria, Portugal and Russia and privately In Great
Britain and the United States. Death
by the sword obtains In fifteen cantons
of Switzerland, in China and Russia
publicly and In Trussin privately. Ecuador, Oldenburg and Russia have
adopted the musket, nil publicly. Iu

the cord and In Spain tho garrote, both

dumped ou the British public regardless of price. Now It happens that
"shoes" to the British mind menu only
what ln America are known as "low
shoes," American "high shoes" being
known here as "boots." Tbe British
public wears "boots" ln tho winter,
and aa this extremely enterprising
American company advertised their
stock as "shoes" ln the winter It Is not

AMONG INDIAN HILL TRIBES.
Charming Account of a Visit Paid to
Strange  People.
In a recent number of The Tour du
Monde, Mle. Menant, the well-known
authority on Parsee life and customs,
has a charming account of a vie.t pa; J
to Mahableshwar. She appears to
know all about this lovely plateau,
and describes the hill tribes, the
Kolis, Kumbis, Dhangurs, and
DhavarB with kindly enthusiasm.
While recognizing their defects, she
doeB not share the old Hindu prejudice against the wild folk of the hills.
Describing the marriage customs of
the Dhangurs she says:
"When they want to ascertain the
favorable moment for the performance
of the rites (in case the Brahmin is
not able to consult the sacred books),
the young couple are made to sit before the door of a hut from which a
eow and then its calf are driven forth.
If tho calf runs to its mother on the
right of the Beated pair, the ceremony can proceed. If, on the contrary, it passes them on the left, the
proceedings must be suspended, and
the trial must be begun over again.

Hardships  In  Forest.
Mile Menant recognizes the peculiar hardships to which these people
of the IuIIb and the forebt are exposed.
"Life is hard for these poor creatures," she says. "Theirs is an incessant struggle against poverty and
the elements. Tlieir food, composed
of the simple products of the forest.
iB rarely sufficient. During the long
months of the monsoon, when the
skies close down on the mountains,
and when the wind Bhakes the trees
of the- forest, what ia their lot? You
have onlv to visit tlie miserable huts
into which they crowd with their
cattle to understand the decrepitude
of the aged, withered and wrinkled,
men and women alike with lean
shanks and deformed limbs. Between
the baby aborigiii-iil. lively and joyous in bis innocent nudity, and the
hoary, hairy old grandfather, bent
and impotent, it is easy to guess the
long years of labor that intervene, and
the ravages and inclemency of tlie
seasons. The notions of good and
evil, as we understand them, are
floating and vague in tlieir minds. In
their hearts and on their lips is the
eternal excuse of primitive man-
human weakness, the sole cause of
sin. Perh=**p>* that is the best excuse
of all. They wilfully avoid the civilizing influences of the mission and
the school.        -*a��__k"_<-
Fear  thefcvil   Eye.
You meet the young ones, laughter
in their eyes, their ready tongues
prattling some picturesque jargon,
Borne dialect of Mahrathi or Hindustani. But do not press them too
closely with questions, do not even
look at them too long. For tbey
are imbued with quaint old-world superstitions; they are haunted by the
fear of the evil eye, especially for
theit children, cunning and light of
foot as little satyrs, ready to disappear with a sudden bound into the
forest thickets.
"Often in our walks our only guides
were tlieir womenfolk, and we followed them without hesitation, sure
of being led aright. They munched
jungle berrieB, they laughed and jested, and cast defying glances at one
another as they leapt from rock to
rock. But a single incautious word
would have put the gay, gentle things
to flight, and what a pity that would
have  been!"
Peers' Who  Live Abroad.
There nre three British peers, if not
more, who belong to families who
have for generations been settled in
distant countries, and who have practically had nothing to do with Britain for many years. Indeed, some
of these peers have never even set
foot  in   England   at   all.
There is, for instance, the Earl of
Seafield. Early in the last century the
then earl emigrated to New Zelmind
and married there. His sons hnve
never seen their father's native land.
The family has remained, and today James Grant Ogilvie of New Zealand, 30 years of age, nnd also married, is the undoubted Earl of Sea-
field, though he never uses the title,
but works hard with his hands to earn
his living, just like any new-comer inlo the colony.
Then there is Baron Fairfax of Cameron, whose forefathers went out to
Virginia long ngo. The present lord
wns born in America in 1870, and certainly never used his rightful title,
nor oven visited England until he was
well pnst 30.
Even more striking is the esse of
Rnron Aylmer, who is a Canadian in
every way, for both "lie and his father
were born in Canada. Lord Aylmer is
nrnctienlly unknown in the United
Kingdom.
Oxford  Students.
The annual census of tho University
of Oxford was taken some little time
back nnd affords some interesting figures. There are in all 2,863 men in
residence at Oxford, an increase uf
only five upon th-a total number last
year.
Considering the fact, however, that
t]ie number in 1904 was 2,724, and
2,752 in 1905, a steady increase is
Bhown.
Number one as regards thc greatest number of resident members
comes New College, with 223, next to
which is Christchurch, with 206, and
third comes Baliol, with only 180
membero. Next on the list are Keble,
173; St. John's, 167; with Brasenose
in the  ruck with   104  residents.
The total number of men in residence at the University on the Cam
far exceeds that of Oxford men, for
at the commencement of last term
there were 3.939 residents at Cambridge.
Gamy Mackerel.
It Is not generally known to amateur
fishermen that the common mackerel
of commerce is u game fish and when
at all hungry will take the fly and
fight ns plucklly as the brook trout.
They have to be played skillfully, ns
tbelr mouths are very tender, but the
hooking nnd successful landing of a
No. 1 mackerel, which often weighs
two or three pounds, with a rod anil
reel are worthy of the most skillful
fisherman.

How a Chicago Husband Proved Himself the Meanest of Men.
"I've just beard of tbe meanest man
In tbistowu."
"What did he do���break open some
child's bank?"
"It was worse tban that. His wlfi
had made hlm promise to help her plot
out a new spring bat. nnd a few hours
before Ihe lime at which be bad agreed
to meet her lu tbe millinery depart
ment of one of the big stores he went
to the place, made a few compliment
ary remarks to one of the youug wo
men on duty there and then told her
wbat be bad agreed to do
'"The woman who lives next door to
us,' ho explained, 'has a new hat which
cost $,13. Now my wife will want one
which ls worth at least $5 or $10 more.'
"Then he whispered some Instruc
lions to the bewitching saleslady and
departed. When he returned with his
wife, he skillfully managed It so that
sho was wuited on liy the young wo
man with whom be bud arranged matters. A number of hats were brought
out for Inspection, but ouly oue of
them seemed to be satisfactory. There
was a hat marked $42 which the victim
of tbo plot liked pretty well, but ber
husband threw up bis hands and declared that It was outrageous for ber
to expect a man lu his circumstances
to pay any sueh price for a wisp of
straw and a feather.
" 'But, Henry, you want, me to look
respectable, dou't you.' tho wife pleaded.
" 'That's all right. If 1 could nfford
It, nothing would give nie greater
pleasure than to buy this bat for you.
But $121 That's more than I pay for
a whole suit of clothes. No. You musl
take something cheaper.'
"Well, they looked at every hat ii
the store, but always thu lady got bad;
to tlie one which was marked $41*.. Al
last Henry found that he would have
to go. Ho couldn't neglect bis busi
ncss all day to help his wife pick out a
hat, nud he went away, desperately In
forming her that she might go ahead
and select anything she wanted.
"When he gjt home that night his
wife put her arms around bis neck and
said:
" 'I suppose It was awfully extrava
gant of me, Henry, but I really could
not find anything else that I would
wear. I hud the forty-two dollar ha I
charged to you. You won't think I'm
silly, will yon, dear?'
"Uo you know whnt that wretch hnd
done? He'd Induced the youug woman
lu the millinery department to take a
twenty-one dollar hat nnd put a forty
two dollar price tag on it, and there hi)
poor wife is witb a hat which actual),

An English  lady has become po
sessed    of    a    mysterious    necklac
which has brought her persistent il
fortune since the day she received ii
as a gift.
"The necklace, which is composed ��� ���'
pearls and turquoises, has a curiou
history. Originally it belonged ti
the Maharanee of Cooch. While i
was in her possession she was robbc;
of a quantity of valuable jewelery
Her husband, the Maharajah, also lost
some of his best racing ponies by
death and breakdown.
At last, matters reached such a
crisis that it was determined to ask
the advice of a "wise man" or pun

declared that the necklace was to
blame���and that it brought bad for

He prescribed a change of ownership
and a voyage across the sea for the
necklace, in order that the spell
might be broken.
Accordingly, the beautiful string ot
precious stones was given as a pre

good fortune has returned to the

Guillotine For Stingy Rich.
George Bernard Shaw, the British
dramatist and critic, addressing a
meeting of the national, art collection
fund recently in London, referred to
the deficit cor the year and the urgent
need of money. He regretted that tbe
people with big, unearned incomes did
not take much interest in the society's work, says a special cable from
London io The New York Sun.
There was, he Baid, $2,500,000,000
in England belonging to people who
did not work. Therefore the society
must tell the rich class that more
moony was needed because it wat
coming in sharp competition with
America. If wealthy people did not
respond to ihe demand they oughl
lo  be  *;uillotined.

Pick Pockets with Their Feet
"The best pickpocket," said Lecoq,
the detective, "are the Hindus. You
have to call them light toed as well
as, light fingered, for they can lift a
watch or purse as easily with their
feet as with their hands.
"Trained from childhood, these
barefooted rascals are wonderfully
skilful with their toes. This gives
them a great advantage. A Hindu
ostentatiously folded and sneak with
his foot the wallet from your trousers

Nearly all infants are more or less
subject to diarrhoea and such complaints while teething, and as this
period of their lives is the most
critical, mothers should not be without a bottle of Dr. J. D. Kellogg's
Dysentery Cordial. This medicine is
a specific for such complaints and is
highly spoken of by those who have
used it. The proprietors claim it will
cure any case of cholera or summer
complaint.
"Drunk again!" said a Scottish

"Och, sure," said the prisoner,

One night two lovers sat spooning
under an apple tree in an orchard.
It was autumn and the ripe apples
were falling around them when the
young man said to the girl: "Dearest Ann, will you give me a kiss for
'very apple that falls?"
To this the girl readily consented.
The apples did not fall very fast and
there  were   few  kisses  exchanged.
Soou afterwards he called on the
.iri "again and they lost no time in
hiding their former seat in the orchard. He again told her he would
;iss her for every apple that fell,
ind this time they fell bo fast he
could not count them, but kept near
the number.
Along towards midnight they were
startled by a voice, coining from
some foliage overhead, exclaiming:
"Sister Ann, if you think I am going
to shake apples down all night for
your measley ten cents you are very
much mistaken."���Buffalo Times.
