To The Independent Voter.
There are thousands uf voters in Canada who have never allied themselves
wilh any particular party; that is, they
have never tied themselves permanently
to any parly; and there are thoueaiuls
more in both parties who prefer the interests of Canada to the interests of
their party.
The question ior them is, how can
they best mako their influence felt for
the public good?
At present I his influence is greatly
minimised by the fact that they vote
apainst each other.
All efforts at uniting this large and intelligent class of electors by Third Party
organisations have hitherto failed, as
witness the history of the Patrons of
Industry and of the numerous parties
now represented in the British Columbia legislature.
The result of the independent electorate voting effectively would be to bring
about in Canada the rotation of parties
in office which prevails in England.
The elector who conscientiously believes that bis own party is keeping
faith with the country, respectfng its
principles and fulfilling its pledges, Is
right to support his party. The elector
who regards both parties as about
equally good or equally bad can do much
to improve both parties hy generally
voting {against the Government of the
day, if recreant to its profound princi*
pies, aud so leaching the politicians of
both sides that they are the servants,
not the master*?, of the country.
In any country where the electors are
in the habit of briugingup Governments
with a sharp turn there is a wideawake
susceptibility and sensitiveness to public opinion which secures a robustness
in politics which makes entirely for the
public good.
On thc other hand, if a party docs
wrong and is returned to power through
blind partisanship, the men who rule
the party became emboldened to dare
more, and tbe country is plunged into
extravagance, because the schemers,
lioviog just come through an election,
realise how easy it iB to hoodwink the
electc-s.
After twelve years of power the Liberal parly have grown arroganty conceited. What benefits favored members
of iheir party MUST suit the country;
if not, so much the worse for the
country.   It is time for a change.
This situation gives to tho great independent vote a splendid opportunity to
benefit the country and to teach tlie
party politicians oi both sides tbat above
them stands this great independent
vote insisting that the politician is the
servant, not the master, much less the
owner of Canada. Again we say, it is
time or a change.
he does, it will be a warning to both
parties and will do Canada immeasurable and enduring good.
Ask Your Liberal Friends.
There never was a campaign where so
little definite answer wbb, or could be
made by those in power to definite accusations of mismanagement, graft and
extravagance. The Liberal seems to
assume that the very magnitude aud
multiplicity of these accusations will
prevent the average voter from either
roalizing or believing them. Surely it
is time then for every intelligent man
to inform himself on these definite
allegations made against the Liberal
administration and to ask his friend,
who is ordinarily a Liberal voter, the
following questions:���
Would you continue to entrust your
business your business to an agent or
company who habitually paid two and
three prices to special friends for articles easily obtainable at normal prices
iu the open market ?
How do you defend the employment
by the Laurier Government of W. T. R.
Preston and J. B. Jackson as highly
paid Government officials?
Can you approve of an administration
which raises the expenditure of the
country by 105 per cent, while the population increases only 85 per cent?
What do you think of the giving away
of part of your land, worth at the very
least .6.00 an acre, to party friends at
$1.00 per acre?
Why should the census of 1901 have
cost more than double that of 1891?
Why sbould not the Government be
condemned for absolute lack of business
capacity when you realize that the G.
T. P. is going to cost nioie lhan three
times the estimates brought before Parliament?
Why should yon and I, as taxpayers,
and the country at large, have to foot
the whole loss in connection wilh the
Quebec Bridge disaster wheu it was ostensibly being built for the benefit of a
private company, who would have
reaped the profit if it had been successful?
Why should not the country own the
G.T.P., FOR WHICH IT IS PAYING?
Just see what answer any intellent
Liberal can give you to plain questions
like these.
Yes; the most serious question before
the electors to-day ia this: Do you want
the business of the country to be managed on an honest and economic basis,
or are you willing that reckless extravagance for the benefit of a favored few
should continue?
Cold Reef 100 Miles Long.
R. Edwards, editor of the Calgary
Eye Opener is up against a criminal lilt is up to tbe independent voter to Ibel action and will appear before the
! take control and make tbat change,   If' supreme court on November 3rd.
Although not generally known there is
in British Columbia a body of gold ore
which in point of size Is the largest in
the world, far discounting the great
reefs of South Africa, ears the Omineca
Herald. Tales of this enormous body oi
ore have been told as a romance in the
mining camps of Ihe Northwest, where
miners gather for gossip. It was no
secret among the early seekers for placer
gold. Somo of the men who made the
journey into tho Omineca river diggings
thirty or forty years ago may have been
discoverers of the great lode; and since
first telling the tale of its extent it has
been the subject of dreams. Was there
not somewhere in the miles of its extent
some shoot of phenomenal richness, or
at least of such value that it could be
worked at a piofit? The question is un
answered. Except for a short distance
along Bear lake nothing like prospecting has ever been attempted. But in
that region where the outcrop has been
described as a mountain of quartz, it
has been sampled a good many times,
and at least one well equipped expedition has gone in lo explore and prospect
the deposit. In yea is past many claims
have been staked, but the locators, overcome by the tremendous difficulties
presented by the transportation problem and the low grade of the ere, were
compelled to let their clains lapse.
Some of the men are here in the countrp
still, ready to re-stake their claim j whenever there is any movement in that
direction.
Beginning away up noth near Bear
lake, and some say still further to the
nortb, this most gigantic of all lodes extends southwards, passing to the end of
Bear lake, where it crops out in bold
bluffs, standing 800, 400 and even 500
feet high. On the southward into the
watershed of tlie Driftwood river, which
it crosses, and still on till at last It terminates 25 miles southwest of tbe
head of Tacla lake, the known distance
between the farthest cropptngs is over
100 miles and tho lowest assay that is
known to have b.en made yielded $1.80
to the ton in gold. Most of the assays
have shown a value af about $0 to the
ton. There are streaks which it ie
claimed will return from .6 to if 10 to the
ton, and one man reports an assay of
(30. Three years ago an expedition
went in to prospect, taking with them
a cyanide outfit. They did not attempt
io secure any holdinge, as the values
were considered to be too low. One
other expedition that went in took samples to Vancouver for testa which apparently were satisfactory, as on telegraphed instructions claims were located. The bead of this party, Mr.
McKinnon, died in Vancouver the day
he was to have left for the north, which
put a stop to operations.
The lode itself is a conglomerate and
from what is learned from prospectors
is apparently the remains of what was
once a placer deposit, covered up by
tbe tremendous lava flows which once
inundated this country, and again
brought to the surface by an upheaval
of nature or by glacier erosion.
As remarked above, there are streaks
which are known to be of greater value
than the general run of rock. With tbe
completion of the Grand Trunk Pacific
railroad and the consequent steamboat
seryice to the head of Tacla lake, mining
in that country would not be too expensive for evon a low grade ore.

Aa briefly announced In these columns
a short time since the Molly Hughes
has been eold to M. Zatloni, of the Reco
mine, Sahdon, the necessary documents
having been duly signed and the deal
completed. A crew of eight or twelve
men will pe put to work the 2nd of next
month.
The property, which up to a short
time ago was worked with a small crew
periodically for eight years has always
shown a credit on the right side of tho
ledger, and during that time over
.30,000 worth of silver-gold ore have
been shipped from it.
During the last two years a deal of
improvement work has been put in,
and the property at the present time
is looking exceedingly well.
Have conditions iu this province been
better or worse since a Conservative administration assumed the reins of office?

CHAl'TKU   XX.
I HAVING Fort St. Louis upon their
right, the travelers pushed on-
g ward as swiftly as they could,
for tbe sun was so low In the
heavens that tho bushes ln the clearings threw shadows like trees.
Then suddenly as tbey peered ln front
of tbem between the trunks tho green
t,f tho sward turned to the blue of the
Milter, mid thoy saw a broad river
running swll'tly before tbem. Amos
and De Catiuat had both been upon
thrj bosom of the Richelieu before, and
their hearts bounded ns they looked
upon it, for they know that this* waa
the Rtralgbt path which led them, the
one to home and the other to peaco and
freedom.
Across the liver was the terrible Iroquois country, and at twa points they
eould sec lbe smoke of Ores curling up
Into the evening air. They followed
tho track which led down the eastern
bank. As thoy pushed on wind a stern
military challenge suddenly brought
them to a stand, nnd they saw the
gleam of two musket barrels which
covered tliem from a thicket overlooking the path.
"Wo aro friends," cried De Catlnat.
"Whence como you, then?" asked an
invisible sentinel.
"From Quebec."
"And whither aro you going?"
"To visit M. Charles de la Noue,
seigneur of Ste. Marie."
"Very good. It is quite safe, Du
Lhnt. They have a lady with them
too. I greet you, madame, ln the name
of my father."
Two mon had emerged from the
bushes, one of whom might have
passed as a full blooded Indian had It
not been for these courtoous words,
whicli he uttered in excellent French.
He was a tall, slight young man, very
dark, with piercing black eyes and a
grim, square, relentless mouth which
could only have come with Indian descent.
The other was undoubtedly a pure
Frenchman, elderly, dark and wiry,
with a bristling black beard and a
fierce, eager face. Leaning upon Uls
long brown gun, he stood watching the
party, while his companion advanced
toward them.
"You will excuse our precautions,"
said he. "We never know what device
these rascals may adopt to entrap us.
I fear, madame, tbat you have had a
long and very tiring journey. My
mother will be very glad to welcome
you and to see to every want. But you,
sir, I have surely seen you beforo."
"And I you," cried the guardsman.
"My name is Amory de Catlnat, once
of the regiment of IMcardy. Surely you
nre Achllle de la Noue de Ste. Marie."
"Yes, It ls I," the young man answered, holding out bis band and smiling
in a somewhat constrained fashion. "I
do not wonder that you should hesitate,
for when you saw me last I was In a
very different dress from this. We have
one life for the forest and one for the
cities, though, Indeed, my good father
will not havo It so and carries Versailles with hlm wherever ho goes. But
It Is time for our relief, and so we may
guide you home."
Two men In the rude dj*ess of Canadian consitalres, or farmers, but carrying their muskets In a fashion which

told De Catlnat's trained tansel that
they were disciplined soldiers, had suddenly appeared upon tbe scene. Young
Ho la Noue gave tbem a few curt in.
junctions and then accompanied the
refugees along the path.
"You may not know my friend here,"
said he, pointing to the other sentinel,
"hut I am quite sure that his name is
not unfamiliar to you. This ls Qrey-
solon du Lhut"
Both Amos and De Catlnat looked
with the deepest curiosity and Interest
nt the famous leader of coureurs de
hols, a man whose whole life had been
spent In pushing westward, ever westward, saying little, writing nothing, but
always the first wherever there waa
danger to meet or difficulty to overcome. *
"What do you think ef those ���_**���
over yonder, Du Lhut?" asked youm
De la Noue.
Tho adventurer glanced over at the
two Utile plumes of smoke which stood
Straight up against the red evening
sky.   "I don't like tbem," said he.
"They are Iroquois, then?"
"Yes."
"Well, at "east It proves that they
nro on thc othvr side ot the river."
Du Lhut lit liis pipe from a tinder
paper. "The Iroquois nre on this side,"
snid he.   "Thoy crossed to the south."
"And you novel told us! How do
5011 know tbat they crossed, aud why
did you not tell us?"
"I did not know until I saw the fires
over yonder."
���   "And how did (hey tell yeu?"
"Tut! An Indian papoose could have
told," snld Du Lhut Impatiently. "Iro-
ouois ou the trail do uothlug without
au oo.ect. rney nave an o'l.eer, tnen.
ln showing that smoke. If their war
parties were over yonder there would
be no object. Therefore their braves
must have crossed the river. And they
could not get over to the north without being seen from tbe fort."
"Then they may be in the woods
round us. We may be in danger!"
cried De la Noue.
De Catlnat cast a glance round him
at the grand tree trunks, the fading
foliage, the smooth sward underneath,
with the long evening shadows barred
across it. How difficult it was to realize that behind all this beauty tbere
lurked a danger so deadly and horrible
that a man alone might well shrink
from It, far more one who had the woman whom he loved walking within
hand's touch of hlm! It was with a
long benrtfelt sigh of relief that he
saw a wall of stockade in the midst
of a large i learlng In front of him,
witb the stone manor bouse rising
nbove It. In a line from the stockade
were a dozen cottages, with cedar
shingled roofs turued up In the Norman fashion, In which dwelt tbe habitants under the protection of tlie seigneur's chateau. At either corner a
smnll brass cannon peeped through an
embrasure. As thoy passed tbe gate
the guard Inside closed It and placed
tlie huge wooden bars Into position. A
littlo crowd of men, women and children were gathered round the door of
the chateau, and a trtan appeared to
be seated on a high backed chair upon
the threshold.
"You know my father," said the
young man, with n shrug of his shoulders. "IIo will have It that be has never left his Norman cnstle and that he
Is still the Seigneur de la None, tho
greatest man within a day's ride of
Rouen and of the richest blood of Normandy. He Is now taking his dues and
his yearly oaths from his tenants.
He would not think It becoming, if
the governor himself were to visit him,
to pause in tbe middle of so august a
ceremony. But, if It would Interest
you, you may step this way and wait
until be has finished. You, madame, I
will take at once to my mother, If you
will bo so kind ns to follow me."
Tho sight was, to the Americans at
least, a novel oue. A triple row of
men, women and children were standing round In a semicircle, the men
rough nnd sunburned, tho womeu
homely and clean, with white enps upon their heads, the children open mouthed and round eyed, awed Into an unusual quiet by the reverent bearing of
their elders. In the center, on his high
backed carved chair, there sat an elderly man, very stiff and erect, with an
exceedingly solemn face. He was a
fine figure of a man, tall and broad,
with large, strong features, clean shaven and deeply lined, a huge benk of a
nose and strong, shaggy eyebrows,
whicli arched right up to the great
wig, which ho wore full nnd long, as
it had been worn In France In his
youth. On his wig was placed a white
hat, cocked jauntily at one side, with
n red feather streaming round it, and
he wore a coat of clnnnmon colored
cloth, with silver at the neck and pockets, which was still very handsome
though It bore signs of having been
frayed and mended more than once.
As the seigneur rose, his son, who
had returned, took De Catlnat by the
sleeve.
"Father," said he, "this ls M. de
Catinat, whom you may remember
Borne yenrs ago at Quebec."
The seigneur bowed with much condescension.
"You are extremely welcome to my
estates, both you and your body servants"���
"They are my friends, monsieur. This
Is M. Amos Green, and Captain
Ephralm Savage. My wife Is traveling
with me, but your courteous son has
kindly taken her to your lady."
"I am honored���honored Indeed!"
cried the old man, with a bow and n
flourish. "I remember you very well,
sir, for it ls not so common to meet
men of quality In this country. Now
that I think of It, the second son of
your- great-grandfather married tho
niece of one of the De la Noues of An-
dclys, which Is one of our cadet
branches. Kinsman, you are welcome!"
He threw his arms suddenly round Dc
Catinat.
The young guardsman was only too
delighted to find himself admitted to
such an Intimacy.
"I will not intrude long upon your
hospitality," said he. "We nre journeying down to Lake Champlaln, and
we hope In a day or two to be ready
to go ou."
"A suit of rooms shall be laid at your
disposal as long as you do me the honor to remain here. Peste! It Is not every dny that I can open my gates to a
man with good blood In his veins. Ah.
sir, thnt Is what 1 feel most hi my exile, for who Is there with whom I can
talk ns equal to equal? You are weary
and hungry, you and your friends.

The manor house was high and
strong, built of graystone In a frame>
work of wood. The large Iron clamped
door through which they entered was
pierced for musketry fire aad led Into a
succession of cellars and storehouses
lu which the beets, carrots, potatoes,
cabbages, cured meat, dried eels and
other winter supplies were placed. A
winding stone staircase led them
through a huge kitchen, flagged and
lofty, from which branched the rooms
of the servants, or retainers, as the
old nobleman preferred to call them.
Above this again was the principal
suit, centering ln the dining ball, with
its huge fireplace and rude homemade
furniture. The seigneur explained that
he had already supped; but, having allowed himself to be persuaded Into
Joining them, he ended by eating more
thau Ephralm Savage and drinking
more than Du Lhut.
CHArTETTXXT.
TWO dnys were spent by the travelers at the selgneury of Ste.
Marie, and they would verj
willingly have spent longer,
for the quarters were comfortable and
the welcome warm, but already the
reds of autumn were turning to brown,
and they knew how suddenly the Ice
and Bnow came In those northern lands
���ind how Impossible It would be to finish their journey If winter were once
fairly upon them. The old nobleman
had sent his scouts \>x land and by wa
ter, dux mere were no signs-ot tnearo-
quols upon the eastern bank, so that it
was clear that Du Lhut had been mistaken. Over on the other side, however, the gray plumes of smoke still
streamed up above the trees as a sign
that their enemies were not very far
off.
The refugees were rested now and
refreshed and of one mind about pushing ou. i
"I am not frightened, Amory, and I
am quite rested now," said Adele.
"We Bhall be so much more happy
when we are In the English provinces,
for even now how do we know that
that dreadful friar may not come with
orders to drag us back to Quebec and
Paris?"
It was Indeed very possible that the
vindictive Franciscan, when satisfied
that they had not ascended to Montreal
or remained at Three Rivers, might
seek them on the banks of tbe Richelieu. The seigneur was friendly, but
tbe seigneur could not disoBey the governor's order. A great hand stretching all the way p6m Versailles seemed
to hang over them, even hero In the
heart of the vlrglu forest, ready to
snatch them up aud carry them back
Into degradation.
But the seigneur nnd his son, who
knew nothing of tlieir pressing reasons for haste, were strenuous In urging Do Catlnat the other way, and in
this they were supported by tbo silent
Du Lhut.
"You have seen my little place," said
tlie old nobleman, with a wave of his
beruftied, ring covered hnnd. "It Is
not what I should wish It, but, such
as It ls, It Is most heartily yours for
the winter If you nnd your comrades
would honor me by remaining. As to
mndame, I doubt not that my own
dame and sho will find plenty to nmuse
and occupy them, which reminds me,
De Catlnat, that you have not yet been
presented. Thcuiiet, go to your mistress and Inform her that I request
her to be so good as to come to us In
the hall of the dais."
De Catinat was too seasoned to be
easily startled, but he was somewhat
taken aback when the lady, to whom
the old nobleman always referred ln
terms of exaggerated respect, proved
to be as like a full blooded Indian
squaw as tbe hall of the dais was to
a French barn.
"Allow mo to present you, M. de
Catlnat,"   said   thc   Seigneur  de  Ste.
It Was Odd.
There was a poor old carter whose
sole means of livelihood was an old
white horse that was periodically
troubled  with  colic.
On these occasions a neighboring
veterinary attended to the needs cf
the suffering animal, and the frequency of these spells and their fortu-
na.e endings caused the owner to
look upon them with unconcern.
But one night the old horse made a
few desperate kicks and breathed hit?
last.
"Well," said the doctor, "old Jim
will  work  for you no more."
"Is he dead?" exclaimed the bereaved carter. "That's odd. He's
had the colic twenty times already,
but lie's never done tliis before."

Marie solemnly, "to my wife, Onega

the hereditary chieftainship on the
distaff side of the nation of the Onon-
dagas. My angel, I havo been endeavoring to persuade our friends to
remain with us at Ste. Marie."
"At least leave your white Illy at
Ste. Marie," said the dusky princess,
speaking lu excellent French and
clasping with her ruddy fingers the
ivory hand of Adele. "We will hold
her safe for you until the ice softens
and the leaves and the partridge berries come once more. I know my people, monsieur, and I tell you that tho
woods are full of murder."
De Catlnat was more moved by the
Impressive manner of his hostess than
by any of the other warnings which
he had received. Surely she, If any
one, must be able to read the signs of
the times.
"I know not what to do!" he cried in
despair. "I must go on, and yet how
can I expose her to these perils? I
would fain stay the winter, but you
must take my word for it, sir, that it
Is not possible."
"Du Lhut, you know how things
should bo ordered," said tho seigneur.
"What should you advise my friend to
do, since he Is so set upon getting to
the English provinces before the winter comes?"
"There is but one way," said Du
Lhnt, "though even ln It there Is danger. The woods are safer than the
river, for the reeds are full of cached
canoes. Five leagues from here is the
blockhouse of Poitou, and fifteen miles
beyond that of Auvergne. We will go
tomorrow to Poitou through the woods
and see If all be safe. I will go with
you, and I give- you my word that if

safe we shall come back for her. Theu
In the same fashion wo shall advance

until you hear where tlieir war parties
are. It ls my mind that It will not ho
very long before we know."
And so It wns at last agreed, and
Adele was consigned to the care of the
lady of Ste. Mario, while De Catlnat
swore that without a pause he would
return from Toltou to fetch hor. The
old nobleman and his son would fain
have joined them In their adventure,

DANGEROUS OPIATES.
Most of the liquid medicines advertised to cure stoinueii and bowel
troubles and summer complaints contain opiates and are dangerous. Whon
the mother gives Baby's Own Tablets
to her little ones she has the guarantee of a government analyst that this
medicine contains no opiate or narcotic. And she has the assurance
that no other medicine will so speedily cure stomach and bowel troubles,
it they eiiine unexpectedly. Give the
well child an occasional dose of those
tablets nnd they will prevent sickness
by clearing the Btomach and bowels
of offending matter. Mrs. Wilbert

Plans  For Giving  a  Pretty but  Inexpensive Wedding.
Details of a wedding depend much
upon the amount of money that Is
spent, yet a simple and Inexpensive
ceremony may be more charming than
one on which a fortune is lavished.
Unless the bride's family can afford
to have a church decorated with palms
and flowers It Is better to hold the ceremony either in the bouse or In a hall
only large enough to accommodate the
guests. By this arrangement the chill
and bare effect sometimes met with lu
churches Is avoided.
Bear in mind always that practically
every expense In connection with the
wedding belongs either to the bride or
her parents, and often It Is necessary
to consider how a limited amount can
best be laid out
To arrange not an altar, but a special part of the room or hall, where the
clergyman nnd bridal party Btand, ls
easily done. For this a few ferns and
palms may be hired for a small sum
and grouped together to form a background. Should tables or stands be
required they may be covered wltb
white cotton.
One bride, whose bouse wedding was
so pretty that her f .lends have remembered it, arranged a kneeling stand for
herself and the bridegroom by laying
ou the floor a piece of carpeting about
six feet long rolled twelve Inches deep.
Over thiB wns placed a white fur rug.
Tho effect was charming, nud the padding was comfortable for the knees.
Cut flowers of course ndd greatly to
thc charm of the room, and at a summer wedding blossoms of tbe season
are not expensive.'
The flowers carried by the bride and
her attendant, If Bhe has one, are sup
plied by the bridegroom.
If the wedding ls a small one and it
Is Intended that the reception shall V*
Informal it Is quite proper for frieavis
to be bidden by note Instead of engraved cards. In this way money ls
saved. The notes, If written by the
bride elect, must be sent ln the name
of her mother or guardian���that Is, the
girl to be married does not issue the invitations, and should It be necessary for
ber to do the writing she should say:
Dear Mrs. James���I am writing ln behalf of my mother (or father) to ask If
you and Mr. James will not give us the
pleasure of your company on the occasion of my wedding to Mr. Charles Jones
and the reception afterward at such and
such a place on Thursday, May the Sd, at
12 o'clock.   Yours sincerely,
JESSICA FR08T.
For this communication small, plain
note paper should be chosen, and the
writing should  be on  the flrst page
' alone.   Such an Invitation requires an
answer from all Invited.
The simplest refreshments may be
served. Sandwiches, cakes, coffee and
chocolate are quite good form. When
one can afford them it Is nice to have
salads, bouillon and Ices, but they
sbould not be considered necessary.
Wedding cake ls not an essential, but
at a small wedding there may be one
big round cake, cut nnd distributed by
the bride.
KEEP OLD  SHEETS.
Rhodes and Matrimony.
Cecil Rhodes at one time had a prl*
tate secretary of whom he entertained
��� high opinion and whose services h#
greatly valued. One fine morning this
favorite abruptly announced that he
was going to be married. The colossus
was speechless with indignation for a
moment, and then, glaring nt the culprit, be growled out, "What on earth
Bin I going to do for another secretary'!!"
Without waiting for a reply he strode
from the room, slamming the door behind him with great violence. His
good nature, however, prompted him to
extend the forgiving hnnd Inter on.
nnd he gave to the bride some fine
diamonds. In addition, he lent them
his own carriage and horses for use to
and from the church.
It never entered his head to give his
erstwhile favorite secretary any more
employment. Such a crime as matrimony, though forgiven, could not be
condoned.

Many Places In the Household Where
They Are Utilized.
There are a number of ways In which
every scrap of an old sheet may be
utilized if one will give the subject
thought First, there are very few
housekeepers Ignorant of the fact that
if the sides nre sewed together and the
sheet cut through the center It will be
given a new lease of life. Twilled
sheets, by reason of their softness, combined with their substantial weave,
make excellent polishing cloths and
good undercovers for ironing boards.
Old cotton sheets make good bags
for inclosing gowns and coats ln the
wardrobe, one large sheet being sufficient for two wardrobe bags. An old
sheet will cut up Into several slips for
use on the pillows over tlie ticking. Another plan is to take the best parts for
making sheets for cots and cribs, where
there are children, reserving the very
thin portions for use as dusters.
A large apron for covering the skirt
to be used for bedmaking can be made
from half a discarded sheet
Very soft old sheets may be cut in
pieces 40 by 20 and devoted to baby's
wear.
In the sickroom there is no end to the
possibilities of an old sheet One-half
laid across the bed under the patient
will serve as a draw sheet Small
pieces may be substitutes) for a handkerchief and then burned. In infectious cases an old sheet may be dipped
in a disinfectant and hung outside the
door of a sickroom.
On sweeping days there Is a need for
old sheets for covering the furniture.
Aa linen wears well and keeps Its color
to the last thread, many very pretty
pieces of decorative work may be
evolved from It An oblong piece,
hemstitched all the way around, then
embroidered, will make a cover for

make a dressing table cover.

Is Pe-ru-na Useful
for Catarrh?
Should a list of the ingredients of Peruna be submitted to any medical expert, of whatever school or nationality,
he would bo obliged to admit without
reserve that the medicinal herbs composing Peruna are of two kinds. First,
Btandard and well-tried catarrh remedies. Second, well-known and generally acknowledged toui. remedies.
That in one or the other of these uses
they havo stood tho test of many years'
experlenco by physicians of different
schools. There can bo no dispute about
this, whatever, rerunaia composed of
some of the most efficacious and universally usrd herbal remedies for ca*
tarrhal diseases, and for such conditions
of the human system aa require a tonic.
Kach ono of tho principal ingredients
of Teruna has a reputation of lis own
iu the cure of some phase of catarrh or
us a tonic medicine.
Tho fad in, chronic catarrh is a disease which i3 very prevalent. Many

chronic catarrh. Thoy have visited doctors over and over again, aud been told
that their ease is one of chrou Ic catarrh.
It mny bo of the nose, throat, lungs,
stomach or soma other internal organ.
Thore ls no doubt as to tho naturo of
tho disease. The only trouble is tho
remedy. This doctor has tried to cure
them. That doctor baa tried to prescribe for them.
No other household remedy so universally advertised carries upon the

inspection of tho critics.
THE BUCKBOARD.
Invented In the Year 1820 by a Pennsylvania Doctor.
Though the name "buekboard" is applied to thousands of carriages, few
people know how the word came to be
used.
Back around 1820. says the American
Vehicle, In explaining It, when the
transportation of goods, wares and
merchandise was almost entirely by
wagon, a Dr. Buck, who for many
years afterward was thc military storekeeper at Washiugton, was ln charge
of military stores en route to army
posts In the southwest.
In east Tennessee much difficulty
was experienced by reason of the rough
roads, and there were frequent mishaps, mostly from 'the wagons overturning.
Dr. Buck overhauled the outfit and,
abandoning the wagon bodies, long
boards were set directly on the axlea
or hung below, nud the stores were
loaded ln such a manner that there
were no further delays from breakdowns, and the stores safely reached
their destinations, ln special emergency, too, the load could be shifted
or taken off in a hurry.
The Idea was probably not new, but
Dr. Buck's example was followed,
especially whon roads were rough, and
soon much hauling wns done by the
use of wheels, axles and boards only.
Now wc have the buekboard, both In
carriage and automobile forms, conforming closely to the original Idea,
though few suspect the source of it

"About two hours, sah."
"How long the second time?" asked

The Effort of Hia Life a Failure.
W. S. Gilbert bad a novel experience
before he wrote for the stage, when
he was a barrister waiting for his flrst
brief. It was long ln coming, and
when fit did come Mr. Gilbert determined, of course, to make the effort of
his life.
He was Intrusted with the prosecution of an old Irish woman for stealing
a coat, and when he began the speech
that he had prepared and rehearsed so
carefully, the old dame at once began
to Interject: "Oh, ye dlvil, Bit down!"
"Sure, now, he's a loler, yer honor!" "Sll
down, ye spalpeen!" "He's known te
all the perllee, yer honor!" After some
minutes of this abuse Gilbert asked
the recorder's intervention, but that official was too busy laughing. So the
effort of his life was not a success.
Lumber Conditions Necessitate Small*,
er Cut This Winter.
Because of the conditions prevail*^
ing at present the big lumber firms
operating in the Georgian Bay and
Ottawa Valley districts will curtail
their cut in the bushes to a very appreciable extent during the coming
winter.
The demand for lumber is not at
all good at present and has not been
for spme ".me. Following close upon
the financial troubles of the fall of
last year came the curtailment in
building operations, leaving all the
big dealers with a big stock on hand
in their yards. The mills closed down
early and a good supply of logs is
still to be sawn up. The dealers do
not anticipate anything abnormal in
next season's demand, and think that
by cutting off the stocks now in the
yards thoy can get along without
much cutting in the bush tho, coming winter, though the gangs will
take out a little, possibly on a conservative estimate, about one-half ol
last year's light cut.
The following winter, 1909-90, will
see the gangs in the bushes as usual,
to replenish the supply of logs at
the mills. The loss in wages to the
bushmen will be a considerable hardship, as last year, during the seven
months the mon were in the camp,
September to April, the 20 big companies put something close to $5,000,-
000 into tlie bush. This year there
may bo half that figure paid out.
The other losses to bo considered are
tlie loss to the merchants who supply
tho provisions for the camp, and the
loss in rovenue to the Government ior
lumber taken out, which is considerable. The talk of a bush (ire changing the whole face of affairs ia not
taken seriously by lumber men, as
they say the danger period for that
haa passed already.
Another feature that has had a part
in the present drastic measures by
the lumber kings ia the American
competition, which is very keen.
There ia no duty on the goods and
the men from across the line dump
it in at a price the Canadians cannot afford to Bell at.

In the Drayton household it is sa'd
that the father of the family has a

"I wish you would speak to Bobby,'

doesn't want to take the medicine and
he doesn't want to go to bed!" i
Mr. Drayton stepped to the door of
Bobby's room and stood there, tall,
grave and impressive.
"Bobby," lie said firmly, "if you
don't take your medicine at once, and
then jump into bed, you will be put
to bed, do you hear? Put to bed without having any medicine at all 1"
Upon wliich Bobby, alarmed and
confused, swallowed his allotted portion and meekly retired for the night.

For the present, however, a memory
of the runner remains in that the
Longboat special cigar, at four for a
quarter, is still on sale, with a good
representation of smiling Tom on tho
lid.
Tom was not in any sense a business man. When the store was purchased for him by the different interests around town, palpably to silence the cry of professionalism in
sport against him, emanating from
across the line, he looked to be in
clover. But people would go and try
the door only to find it locked and
Tom elsewhere. This sort of thing
could not last long, and the transient
purchasers drifted back to their old
haunts.
Then Tom secured a boy to look
after it, but that was not a success
either, and finally ho store has drifted into the control of Charles Rosa.

must leave the door open all day

to know why tlio "Tom Longboat"
was still on the window in big letters, and their removal three days
later leaves only the bottom line,

Terms In Science That Belie the Products to Which They Apply.

applied.
The word "oil" in Its more comprehensive and indiscriminate uses Is
made to include hydrocarbons, like petroleum, and also many other substances that have an oily appearance,
like "oil of vitriol," which is not oil at
all, but sulphuric neld.
Strictly speaking, the mineral oils,
Including all petroleum products, are
not oil, although we speak of "coal
ell" and "kerosene oil."
The best classifications of oils do not
Include mineral hydrocarbons, like
naphtha, paraffin and petroleum, but
treat only the two well defined groups
���fixed oils aud fats and the essential
or volatile oils.
"Copperas" is not copper, but sulphate of Iron. "Salt of lemon" has
nothing to do with the fruit of the
lemon tree, but is potassium blnoxalate
or potash treated with oxalic acid.
"Carbolic acid" Is not an acid, but a
phenol. In structure it ls allied to the
alcohols and has only slight acid properties. "Soda water" has no trace of
soda. "Sulphuric acid" contains no
sulphur. "Sugar of lead" is Innocent
of sugar.
"Cream of tartar" has nothing to do
with cream nor "inllk of lime" with
milk. "German sliver" Is a stranger
to silver, and "black lead" 1b not lead
at all, but graphite. "Mosaic gold1*' ls

One of Judge Grosscup's Distinctions.
Judge Peter Grosscup Is never referred to as "tbe Junior partner of the
junior partner of Abraham Lincoln."
Although the judge ls only Qfty-alx
years old, It is a fact that he enjoys
this distinction.
For years he was the junior partner
of Leouard Swett of Chicago. Gross-
cup was a mere boy then and Swett
was In the sere and yellow. The old
sign of "Swett & Lincoln" ls, I believe, ln possession of the Chicago
Historical society.
Judge Grosscup himself never mentions this. I hnve often wondered If
the experience of Roscoe Conkling's
father has anything to do with this
reticence.

How "Private" John Allen Got Himself
Elected to Congress.
Here ls Champ Clark's defense ef
humor, if tt needs one:
"The dry-as-dusts solemnly asseverate that humor never did any good.
Now, let's see. How did 'Private' John
Allen of Mississippi get to congress?
Joked himself in. One bit of humor
sent him to Washington, a national
lawmaker. Opposing him for the congressional nomination was the Confederate General--Tucker. They met on
the stump. General Tucker closed one
of his speeches as follows:
" 'Seventeen yenrs ago tonight, my
fellow citizens, after a hard fought
battle on yonder hill, I bivouacked under yonder clump of trees. Those of
you who remember as I do the times
that tried men's souls will not, I hope,
forget their humble servant when the
primaries shall be held.'
"That was a strong appeal ln those
days, but John raised the general at
his own game. 'My fellow citizens,'
he said, 'what General Tucker says to
yon about bivouacking under yonder
clump of trees ls true. It is also true,
my fellow citizens, that I was a vedette
picket and stood guard over him while
he slept. Now, then, fellow citizens,
all you who were generals and had
privates to staud over you while you
slept vote for General Tucker, and all
of you who were privates and stood
guard over the generals while they
slept vote for Private John Allen.'
The people caught on, took John at
his word and sent hlm to congress,
where he stayed until the world was
filled with his renown."

Marriages In Manitoba.
A number of marriage ceremonies
have been solemnized in Manitoba by
visiting clergymen from the UniteO
States. When his faet was brought te
the attention of Attorney-General
Campbell he stated that marriage
eeremonies performed in Manitoba by
a visiting clergyman from across the
lino are illegal. United States clergymen have no legal status in Manitoba,
and have, therefore, not the right to
perform marriage ceremonies. They
are liable to the penalties provided by
statute. Ho pointed out, however,
that all marriages performed in the
province by unauthorized persons bo-
come legal after the expiration of two
years, provided the two parties have
lived together as man and wife during
that time ar.d the validity of the mar-

A COMEDIAN'S TRICK.
But by Which He Racaprd Afreet
and Had Ilia Debta Paid.
Many amusing stories are told of Joe
Haines, a comedian of the time of
Charles II., sometimes called "Count"
Haines. It ls said that ho was arrested
ano morning by two bailiffs for a debt
of f 20, when he saw a bishop to whom
he was related passing along In his
coach. With ready resource he immediately saw a loophole for cs.ape, and,
turning to the men, he said, "Let ma
speak to his lordship, to whom I am
well knowu, and he will pay the debt
and your charges Into the bargain."
Tho bailiffs thought they might venture this, as they were within two or
three yards cf the coach, and acceded
to the request. Joe boldly advanced
and took off his hat to the bishop. His
lordship ordered tho coach to stop,
when Joe whispered to the divine that
the two meu wero suffering from such
scruples of conscience that he feared
they would hang themselves, suggest*
ing that his lordship Bhould invite them
to his house and promise to satisfy
them. Tbe bishop agreed, and, calling
to the bailiffs, ho said, "You two men
come to me tomorrow morning, and .1
will satisfy you."
The ���jaen bowed and went nwny
please,*, and zarly the next day waited
ou his lordship, who, when they were
ushered in, said, "Weil, my men, wbat
are these scruples of conscience?"
"Scruples?" replied one of flicm. "We
hnve uo scruples! We are bailiffs, my
lord, who yesterday arrested your cou,
sin, Joe Haloes, for a debt of ��20, and
your lordship kindly promised to satisfy us."
The trick was strange, but the result
was stranger, for his lordship, elthei
appreciating its cleverness or considering himself bound by the promise he
bad unintentionally given, there and
then settled with the men ln full.
THE BULGARIAN.
A  Pocollar Fellow,  He la  ICHh.r a
Soldier or a I'eaaant,
It Is a strange country of contrasts,
this Bulgaria that people have so long
watched as a danger spot The peasant
ls a heavily built fellow, with a Knl-
muk uoso if he happens to be pure bred
from Uie original Samoyede stock,
which ls not ilhily. His language has
become Slavic, wUoh menus a language in which "beefsteak" ls "mplph*
teki" and "omelet soullle" Is "omlet
cup hie."
The Bulgarian ls a peasant or a soldier.  He kuows uo other trade.  As a
farmer the sheep ts all In all to him,
food and clothing aud compauioiiship,
Bays a writer lu The Era. He lives ln a
; hovel,  does uot understand why he
j ehould ho taxed aud makes his women
slave in the Held.  He ls called close-
' fisted, churlish and suspicious aud haa
some of the virtues thut often go with
those qualities.
When  Bulgaria  became practically
1 free of the sultan, there wero many
Turks left In the couutry.  These are
: grndually being crowded out, hut there
is still a mosque lu Christian Sofia, and
in the palace of the sobrauje, or parliament, where the members have better
accommodations than the lords of Britain on the Thames embankment, some
twenty Turkish deputies always sit together and exert nu influence that they
never could do In their own land by
I voting always with the party in power.

| francs a day, all in stiver five franc
pieces. These peasant lawmakers knot
I It up in handkerchiefs, grin slowly and
