interesting lecture to a fa|r sized
audience at 1 lie Bloean Hospiial, New
Denver, on TurFtlay last. The rev.
gentleman arrived tlie same day from
Kasl. where be bad been delivering a
simi'ar lecture.
He began by apo'ogizing for his  lardy arrival, and explained that a lecent
illness  has disarranged  his   itinerary,
alter which be took up the no t important matter of restocking Slocan Lake.
It was tlie lecturer s  belief that   this
eould  he   best achieved   through   the
medium of a hatchery.   He explained
that the department might nstock with
varieties ol lisli, which, while maturing
in due course, would not propognte, and
that was thc end desired.     Ila  advocated  a   hatchery    for    the  very  good
reason that the (isb whicli   were  habitants of onr  lake,   bred,   spawned,   and
when  niatiirid,  stayed   with  us,  and
consequently, tie h i al sicciisof sal
mon and trout should  be given every
opportunity   to  multiply,      Tills  lake
was not  land'ocked and other varieties
of .lie trout family  might migrate in
natural  order to    the sea.      For the
guidance of angleis he mentioned  that
the salmon  carries  14 rays  upon   the
anal fin, whilst trout showed but eleven.
This  was   infallible    in  all spo.ics  of
tbe respective families.
He  had not seen any  fi-di  from   our
waters, but he  promised  to  return in
Au_ust next,  when be- hoped to ascertain more about them and their habits.
The  rev. gentleman has  made his sublet a   life's   study,  and    for thirteen
years lie bus been endeavoring to  per-
sua'e tbe Dominion   Government   to
establish   a biological   station   in  tho
province.     He explained   that  on  an
average]a female salmon laid 4,000 eegs,
and if two firh from  that number  matured it was   well   np lo  the average.
He st or-gly  deprecated  tlie   Importation of f.ieign  li-h   for  the reasons
mentions', ns it bad been  proven   that,
varie.i s, such as black bass, might mature; but tlieir usefulness won! I end at
tiiat.    He was told  that the lake contain! tl  a species of   whitefish, but he
could not classify it without inspection,
as (heie were  four  varieties  known   in
B.C.   Undoubtedly Slocan  held   land-
lockel Ilih, but there wit' a  specie:)  of
si a Siilmon which came up and spawned
in May. ' Landlocked fish spawned  in
November.     He    would    present   the
matter to tlie Fiehery Commission, bul
lie said   nothing  would  b     done  until
after his   visit   iu  August,   and    he
inspector, and thus the delay occasioned
by vexat:ous appeal tu Ottawa would
be obviated.
B.f ne conclu ling bo expressed himself as delighted with the charms of
New Denver and the surrounding grandeur, antl thanked the T.I.S. for a book
of views whicli bad been handed to him.

The Miners' Union Hall, Sandon, was
the scene of a very pleasant evening on
Friday tlte 8tii intt., tbe occasion being
a Conceit arranged by lhe members of
the Presbyterian Church. There was
an audience of about eighty, and taking
into conslderat'on the small population
of SanJou at the present time this was
very creditable. Owing, unfortunately,
to the dale clashing with tbe lodge
night of the .Oddfellows, many were prevented from attending. Some of the
boys  were in  fiom the Eureka mine,
Among a very gootl program 'pedal
credit is due to Mrs. Towgood, who is
pjBMSsed of a very pleasing eoprano
voice, and lhe audience were awarded
a treat in hearing "A May Mornin**."
A p'anoforte duet by Mr��, Towgood aud
Mrs. Fingland, a duet by Mre. White
and M'S. Towgood, the former lady
having an a'to voice of gnat merit, ami
a duet by Mre. Robinson and Mrs.
Towgood were much appreciated.
Mrs.    Jas.    Thompson     was    very
euicrtiiiiiiiig in her recital ions  and .ever.,! of  lhe  audience  were n.ticed to
wipe aaay surrept tious tears during her.
able portrayal uf " Shamus O'Brien."
Mrs.   R'ibiiis.in  gave a very   pleasing!
item "The Dear Homeland" in a singn- *
larly sweet voice.     Mre.  Fingland deserves great   praise   from   all   for her
indefatigable accompanying, which left
nothing to be desired.
Amongst the gentlemen, Mr. Angell,
the well-known comic singer from New
Denver, was once again the star of.the
evening, and was enthusiastically te-
ceived by an audience who discerned his
groat talent. Mr. Wells (as a female
character) in a vocal effjit received
great applause. Mr. Jackson eang in
his usual accomplished manner and received well merited encores. "Sweet
antl Low" as a trio by Mrs. White, Mrs.
Towgood, and Mr. Gifford was deservedly
praised. Mr. Towgood recited "A Bumpkin's Coiiitship" id his usual Inimitable
manner, and for an encore gave a recitation of home production, relating what
the baby thought of Pa. (We should
not care to vouch for what baby thinks,
but certainly can for Ma) Mr. Pemberton gave a solo for which he received an
enoore, and a recitation which caused
much mirth.
A vmy pleasant evening was brought
to a clo*?o by a few words from Mr.
Chalmeis, lhe Presbyteiianpastor, after
which we ate and said a grace to ourselves for the gootl things kindly provided by the ladies.

The Nelson Daily  News published a
statement under reserve yesterday to
the e.'lect that the long awaited decision of the U. S. Supreme Court in ths
matter of fluty on  zinc ores crossing
from Canada has been given.   If, as is
suggested   ly the News,  sulphide of
zinc is im:' dutiable, there will be great
rejoicing   by  the mine owners of the
Slocan.   The zinc ore which has heretofore been produced in B.C. has been
marketed chiefly in the United States,
at Pueblo, Colo, and  several points in
Kansas, a quantity  having  also been
shipped to Europe.    At  the present
moment there is no  Canadian market
for tho product; the smelter at Frank
never  rising above the experimental
stage, and the Canada Zinc Co. 's electrical plant being yet in course of con-
stuction.     There are  various   causes
that    have    militated    against    the
shipment of crude zinc and the milled
article to Europe, the chief being that
the smelters there contract for large
quantities of ore a long time ahead,
and a long delay is caused by shipping.
The Americans   have  the advantage
that they receive their entire ore suii-
ply by rail, and they puchnse from a
multiplicity of small mines from weel,
to week, and the business is in all respects far simpler than with the European smelters.   Through the tactics of
bulls and bears,  the London price of
zinc is invariably a little  lower than
the American price, so it will be seen
there are solid reasons for desiring the
removal of 20 per cent,  ad volorem on
zinc blende.
In 1905 there was produced in the
Slocan 13,820 tons of ore, averaging
42 p c zinc, ami as most of this waa
shipped to Iota or Pueblo, the trine*
owners of that district, fearful lest the
better class of ore coming fiom the
Slocan should seriously affect their
market, stiffened their hacks and talked
"duty." Up toto that time zinc was
classified as calamine, which was duty
free. Ca'ainine includes both the carbonates and both the silicates of zinc,
although the U S. Treasury Department .
and the Board of Appraisers, 15 months
ago, ruled to the contrary, nnd that
ruling has just been tested by the
smelters who desire British Columbia
W. R. Ingalls, the greatest authority
on zinc extant, has conservatively estimated that, when the necessary facilities have been provided, Slocan and
Aiasworth are capable of producing
30,000 tons of blende per annum of an
average zinc content of 50 per cent.
This would correspond to a spelter production of upwards of 13,000 tons, or
approximately four times the present
consumption of the Dominion.
The Slocan is at this moment suffering a nervous strain, which will continue until corroborative news of the
rendering of the Supreme Court is received. As a matter of fact there are
hundreds of thousand.*, of tons of zinc
lying upon Slocan dumps owned by the
poor prospector and tho wealthy gorgon,

Fire at Sandon Destroys Home
The home of Geo. Waite at Sandon
was destroyed by fire on Wednesday
night. The alarm was tuned in at 7.45
and at 8.30 nothing but the shell remained. Two hoses were attached to
to the hydrants, one near the burning
building and the other near the post
office, but although a few of the personal effects of the occupants were
saved, the major portion of the home
was destroyed. The origin of the outbreak is unknown, but we understand
some insurance is carried. Mr. Waite
is at present engaged upon the detective force of the Vancouver police, but
his wife and family were residing at
the cottage at the time of the fire.
The family will move to Vancouver as
soon as the insurance is adjusted. The
adjoining building was saved. �������������

There was a fresh grave made in
the churchyard nnd another chair vacant at the cottage, when Maddy was
, at last alone. Unfettered by care
and anxiety for sick ones, her aching
heart wns free to go out after the
loved ones over the sea. go to the elm
shaded mansion she had heard described so olten, and where now two
brides were busy with their preparations for the bridal hurrying on so
fast. Since the letter read in thc
smoky October woods, Maddy had not
heard from Guy directly, though Lucy
had written since, a few brief lines,
telling how happy she waB, .how
strong she was growing, and how
much like himself Guy was becoming. Muddy Hud been less than a
woman if the last intelligence hud
failed to affect her unpleasantly, She
did not wish Guy to regret his decision ; but to be forgotten so soon nfter so strong protestations of affection
vas a little mortifying, and Maddy's
heart throbbed painfully as she read
the letter, half hoping it might prove
the last she should receive from Lucy
Atherstone. Guy had left no orders
for any changes to be made at Aikenside; but Agnes, who was largely imbued with a love of bustle and repair, had insisted that at least the
suite of rooms intended for the bride
should be thoroughly renovated with
new paper and paint, carpets and
furniture. This plan Mrs. Noah opposed, for she guessed how little Guy
would cam Ior the change; but Agnea
was resolved, and as she had great
faith in Maddy's taste, she insisted
that she should go to Aikenside and
pass her judgment upon the improvements. It would do her good, she
said���little dreaming how much it
cost Maddy to comply with her
wishes, or how fearfully the poor,
crushed heart ached, as Maddy went
through the handsome rooms fitted
up for Guy's young bride; but Mrs.
Noah guessed it all, pitying so much

"It was wicked in her to fetch you
here," she said to Maddy one day
when in Lucy's room she lound her
sitting upon the floor with her head
bowed down upon the window sill.
"But, law, she's a triflin' tMng, and
didn't know 'twould kill you, poor
child, poor Maddy I" and Mrs. Noah
laid her hand kindly on Maddy's
hair. "Maybe you'd better go home,"
she continued, as Maddy made no reply- , ,  ,
"No, Mrs. Nonh," and Maddy s
voice was strangely unnatural as she
lifted up her head, revealing a laeo
so haggard and white that Mrs. Noah
was frightened, and asked in much
alarm if anything new had happened.
"No, nothing; I was going to say
that I'd rather stay a little longer
where there are signs and sounds of
life. I should die to be alone at Hone-
dab to-morrow. I may die here. Do
you know that to-morrow will be
the bridal?"
Yes, Mrs. Noah knew it; but she
hoped it might have escaped Maddy's
"Poor child," she said again, "poor
child, I mistrust you did wrong to
tell him no."
"Oh, Mrs. Noah, don't tell me thatj
don't make it harder for me to bear.
The Tempter has been telling me so
all day, and my heart is so hard and
wicked I cannot pray as I would. Oh.
you don't know how wretched I am!"
and Maddy hid her face in the broad,
motherly lap, sobbing so wildly that
Mrs. Noah was greatly perplexed how
to act, or what to say.
Years aeo, she would have spurned
the thought thnt the grandchild of
the old man who had bowed to his
own picture should be mistress of
Aikenside: but she had changed since
then, and could she have had her
way, she would hnve stopped the marriage, nnd, brintring her boy home,
have given him to the young girl
weeping so convulsively in her lap.
But Mrs. Nonh could not have her
way. The bridnl guests were, even
then, assembling in thnt home beyond
th. sea. She could not cnll Guy bnck,
, and so Rhe pitied and caressed the
wretched Muddy, saying to her at last:
"I'll tell you whnt is impressed on
my mind; this Lucy's got the consumption, without nny kind of doubt,
nnd if you've no objections to a widower,  you  mny "
She did not finish the sentence,
for Maddy stnrted in horror. To her
there wns something murderous in
the very idea, nnd she thrust it quickly nside. Guy Remington was not
for her. she said, and her wish was
to forget him If she could get
through the dreaded to-morrow, she
should do better. There had been a
load upon her the whole dav, a nightmare she could not shake off, and she
had come to Lucy's room in the hope
of leaving her burden there, of praying her pain nway. Would Mrs. Noah
leave her a while, and see that no one
The good woman could not refuRe,
and going out, she left Maddy bv
the window watching the sun as it
went down and then watching the
wintry twilight deepen over the landscape, until nil things were blended
together in one grent darkness, and
Jessie found her at last fainting upon
the floor.
Maddy was glad of the rackine headache which kept her in her bed the
whole oi the next dny, glad of any
excuse to stay away from the family,

and when the clock struck four, flhe

"They were to be married nt eight
in the evening. Allowing for possible delayR, it's over before this, and
Guy is lost forever!"
Mrs. Noah had no consolation to
offer, and only pressed the hot, feverish hands, while Mnddy turned her
face to the wall nnd did not speak

what was before her. Both Agnes

and in this way the time wore on.
until the anniversary of thnt day
when flhe had come from New York
and found Guy waiting for her at
the station. To ptay that day in the
hoiiRe so rife with memories of the
dead was impossible, nnd Flora wns
Rurprised and delighted to hear that
both were going up to AikeiiRide in
the vehicle hired of Farmer Green,
whose son officiated as driver. It
was nearly noon when they reached
their destination, meeting at the gate
with Flora's brother Tom, who said
to them:
"We've heard from Mr. Guy; the
ship is in; they'll be here sure tonight, and Mrs. Nonh is turnin'
things upside down with the dinner."
Leaning back in the buggy, Maddy
felt for a moment aa if flhe were dying. Never, ljntil then, had she realized how, all the while, she had been
clinging to an indefinable hope, a
presentiment that something might
yet occur to spare her from a long
iifetime of pain, such as lay before
her if Guy were really lost; but the
bubble had burst, leaving ber nothing to hope, nothing to cling to, nothing but black despair; and half bewildered she received the noisy greeting of Jessie, who met her at the
door and dragging her into the drawing room, decornted with flowers from
the hothouse, told her to guess who
was coming.
"I know; Tom told me; Guy is coming with Lucy," Mnddy answered.
and relieving herself from Jeflsie, she
turned to Agnes, asking where Mrs
Noah was and if she might go to hei
"Oh, Maddy. child, I'm sorry you'vi
come to-day," Mrs. Noah said, as she
chafed Maddy's cold hnnds, and lending ber to the tire, made her sit down.
"I did not know it, or I should
have stayed away," Maddy replied;
"I shall not stay, as it is. I cannot
see tliem to-day. Charlie will drive
me buck before the train is due; but
what did he say? And how is Lucy? '
"He did not mention her. There'll
the dispatch," nnd Mrs. Noah handed to Maddy the telegram received
that morning, and which was simply
as follows:
"The steamer is here. Shall be at
station at five o'clock p. m.
"Guy Remington."
Twice Maddy read it over, experiencing much the same feeling she
would have experienced had it been
her death warrant she was reading.
"At five o'clock. I must go before
that," she said, sighing as she remembered how, one year ago that
day, she was traveling over the very
route where Guy was now traveling
with his bride.- Did he think of it?
Think of his long waiting at the depot, or of that memorable ride, the
events of which grew more and more
distinct in her memory, making her
cheeks burn even now as she recalled
his many acts of tender care.
Laying the teleeram on the table,
she went with Mrs. Noah through
. the rooms, warmed and made ready
for the bride, lingering longest in
Lucy's, which the bridal decorations
and the bright fire blazing in the
grate made singularly inviting. As
yet, there were no flowers there, and
Maddy claimed the privilege of arranging them for this room herself.
Agnes had "almost stripped the aon-
servntory; but Maddy found enough
to form a moat tasteful bouquet;
which she placed upon a marble
dressing table; then within a slip
of paper which she folded across the
top. she wrote: "Welcome to the
"They both will rceoenize mv handwriting; they'll know I've been here,"
flhe thought, as with one long, last
look nt the mom she walked nway.
They were Inyine the tnhle for dinner now, nnd with a kind of dizzy,
uncertain feeling, Mnddy watched
the servants hurrying to nnd fro.
bringing out tbe choicest china, and
the glittering silver, in honor of the
bride. Comparatively, it was not
long since a little, frightened, homesick girl, Rhe flrst Rat down with
Guy at that tnb'.e, from wliich the
proud Agnefl would have banished
her; but it seemed to her an age,
so much of happiness and pain had
come to her since then. There was a
place for her there now, a place nenr
Guy: but she should not fill it. She
could not stay; and she astonished
Agnes and Jessie, just as they were
going to make their dinner toilet, by
announcing her intention of going
home. She was not dressed to meet
Mrs. Remington, flhe said, shuddering as for the first time she pronounced a nnme which the servants had
frequently used, find which jarred on
her ear every time she heard it. She
was not dresfled appropriately to meet
an Kngliflh lady. Flora of course
would atnv, she snid. as it was natural
she fihould. to greet ber new mistress;
but she must go. nnd he bnde Charlie
Green  bring around  the  buggy.
Agnes was not particularly surprised, for a vague suspicion of some-
thing like the truth had gradually
been creeping into her brnin, br she
noted Maddy's pallid face, and the
changes whicft panned over it whenever Guy was mentioned. Agnes pitied Maddy, for in her own heart there
was a little burning spot, when she
remembered who was to accompany
Dr. Holbrook. So she did not urge
her to remain, and ahe tried to hush
Jessie's lamentations when Bhe heard
Mnddy was going.
One long, sad, wistful look at Guy's
and Lues's home, and Maddy followed i.ljariie to the hucev _v_alt!_Sst.ior
or, oiuuing Him rtnv_ rapidly, aa
there was every Indication of a coming storm.
Tho gray, wintry afternoon waa
drawing to a close, and the December
night was shutting down upon the
Honedale hills in sleety rain, when
the cottage was reached, and Maddy,
passing up the narrow, slippery walk,
entered the cold, dreary room, where
there was neither fire nor light, nor
friendly voice to greet her. No sound
save the ticking of the clock; no welcome save the purring of tbe house
cat, who came crawling at her feet
as she knelt before the stove and tried
to kindle the fire. Charlie Green had
offered to go in and do this for her,
as indeed he had offered to return
and stay all night, but she had declined, preferring to be alone, and
with stiffened fingers she laid the
kindlings Flora had prepared, and
then applying the match, watched the
blue flame as it gradually licked un
the smoke and burst into a cheerful
"I shall feel better when it's warm,"
she said, crouching over the fire, and
shivering with more than bodily cold.
There was a kind of nameless terror stealing over her as she sat thinking of the year ago when the inmates
of three graves across the meadow
were there beneath that very roof
where she now snt alone,
"I'll strike a light," she said, rising to her feet, and trying not to
glance at the shadowy corners filling
her with fear.
The lamp wan found, and its friendly beams soon dispersed the darkness
from the corners and the fear from
Maddy's heart, but it could not drive
from her mind thoughts of what might
at that moment be transpiring at
Aikenside. If the bride and groom
came at nil thnt night, she knew they
must have been there for an hour or
more, and in fnncy she saw the tired,
but happy, Lucy, as up in her pleasant room she made her toilet for dinner, with Guy standing by and looking on just as he had a right to do..
Did his eye, when it rested on her,
light up with the same expression
she had seen so often when it looked
at her? Did he commend her taste
and say his little wife was beautiful,
as he kissed her fair, white cheek
or waB there a cloud upon his handsome face, a shadow on his heart,
heavy with thoughts of her, and
would he rather it were Maddy there
in the bridal room? If so, his burden was hard indeed, but not so hard
aa hers, and kneeling on the floor
poor Maddy laid her head in the
chair, and, 'mid piteous moans, ask
ed  God  to help  them  both to  bear
their lot.
The prayer ended, Maddy still sat
ipon the floor, while over her pale
face the lamplight faintly flickered
showing the dark lines beneath he.
eyes and the tear stains on her cheek
Without, the storm still was raging
and the wintry rain, mingled witi.
i.leet and snow, beat piteously agains:
the curtained windows, while the wind
howled mournfully as it shook the
door and sweeping past the cottage
went screaming over the hill. But
Maddy heard nothing of the tumult
She hnd brought a pillow from the
bedroom, and placing it upon the
chair, sat down again upon the floor
and rested her head upon it. She
did not even know that her pet cat
had crept up beside her, purring contentedly and occasionally licking her
hair, much less did she hear above
the storm the swift tread of horses'
feet as someone came dashing down
the road, the rider pausing an instant
as he caught a glimpse of the cottage lamp and then hurrying on to
the public house beyond, where the
ORtler frowned moodily at being called out to care for a stranger's horse,
the stranger meanwhile turning back
afoot to where the cottage lamp shone,
a beacon light through the inky darkness. The stranger reached the little
gate and, undoing the fastening, went
hurrying up the walk, his step upon
the crackling snow catching Maddy's
ear at last and making. her wonder
who could be coming tnere^on such
a night as this. It was probably
Charlie Green, she said, and with a
feeing of impatience at being intruded upon she arose to her feet just
as the door turned upon its hinges,
letting in a powerful draught of wind,
which extinguished the lamp and left
her in total darkness.
But it did not matter. Maddy had
caught a sound, a peculiar cough,
which froze the blood in her veins and
made her qunke with terror quite as
much as if the footsteps hurrying toward her had been the footsteps of the
dead, instead of belonging, as she
knew they did, to Guy Remington-
Guy, who, with garments saturated
with rain, felt for her in the darkness, found her where from faintness
she had crouched again beside the
chair, drew her closely to him, in a
passionate, almost painful, hug, and
said, oh! so tenderly:
"Maddy, my darling, my own! We
will never be pnrted ngain."

The First to Grow it extensively Were

Grown by American Settlers _.
Very few of the Canadian settlers
* in the Northwest seem, to have any
thought of growing flax; but the Meii-
nonites who settled in the;*, districts
.known as the "Mennonite Reserve"
in Southern Manitoba between Rosen-
feld, Gretna, Plum Coulee, Morris and
Emerson have grown it quite extensively for many years, The farmers
of Minnesota. Nortli and South Dakota; Iowa, Kansas and Nebraska
have grown large quantities of flaxseed for many years and as these farmers began to migrate into the Canadian Northwest the cultivation of
flaxseed was taken up in some of the
districts where they settled. It is
most extensively cultivated on the
Canadian Pacilie Railway Soo* line
between Estevan and Moose Jaw, on
the Canadian Pacific Railway Areola
branch between Areola and Regina.
and on the Canadian Northern Railway between Regina and Prince Albert. It is grown here nnd there by
American settlers in other districts
throughout the Canadian West, but it
is from the districts named thut the
largest quantities of flaxseed come,
probably because they nre so largely
settled by Anfericans who have had
experience in flax growing in the
Northwestern States and know that
tlie Canadian West is equally well
adapted to th i�� crop both as regards
soil and climate. The Huccess of flux
growing in thoHe districts where it
hns been cultivated will probably
cause farmers in other parts ol the
Canndinn West to devote some attention to it in future.
Afflicted this bright little girl
Mr*. P. Miner, of 311 Suffolk Street, Guelpb, Ont., says:   "A year
since, while while living in Oshawa, Ont., my little daughter Lorinda, six
years of aga contracted a skin disease on the upper part of her body.     This
first broke out like tiny water blisters, ���lit r wards taking lbe form of dry scabs.  These
would disappear for a short time and then reappear worse than ever.      The clothes
coming in contact with the skin set up such a severe irritation that it was impossible
to keep her from  scratching.      We  tried various preparations yet obtained no
good results until we began using Zam-Buk.     Witb each application the irritation
and soreness waa greatly relieved, and the child rested easier.      Thro' continued
using, the eruptions and scabs last disappeared ahd in a short space of time Ihe skin
was completely cleared from the disease.     It is now some months since we used

Origin of Thimbles.
The thimble was originally called a
thumb bell by the English, because
worn on the thumb, then a .humble,
and finally its present name. It was
a Dutch invention, and was first glass
and pearl. In China beautiful carved
pearl thimbles are seen, brought to
England in 1695.
Thimbles were formerly made only
of iron and brass, but in comparatively late years they have been made of
gold, silver, steel, horn, ivory, and
even glaBS and pearl thimbles are
seen, bound with gold and with the
end of gold. Tlie first thimble introduced into Siam was a bridal gift
from the King to tlie Queen; it is
shaped like a lotus bud, made of gold
and thickly studded with diamonds arranged to B*jeJi,the Queen's name.

Care  With  Which  They  Are  Treated
by Amateurs and Collectors.
How careful collectors aud amateurs
of fine engravings are of their treasures Is illustrated by a wrltteu agreement that a local firm of dealers ln
such thiugs had to sign recently wheu
they wanted to borrow several particularly rare engravings for an exhibition
they were to have In their galleries.
The owner of tbe prints insisted that
from the time the box In which the
prints were sent to the dealers was
opened In the shop no hands but those
of the junior partner of the firm were
to touch them. The owner stipulated
expressly tbat the member of the firm
was to take them out of the box, frame
them himself, bang'them on tbe walls
and when the show was over follow
the prints back through these various
stages uutll a porter was ready to
screw the cover of the packing box on
again. The prints were so rare and
fine that the junior partner cheerfully
agreed to all of these condltlous for
the sake of showing the engravings.
That the prints were extremely rare
may be appreciate*] from the fact thnt

Mooda and Mystery That Are Embodied In a Piece of Steel.
A cutlery company will make a hundred razors from the same piece of
steel by the snme process, and part of
the razors will be good and part of
them bad. It may be fifty of one kind
or seventy-five or twenty-five���nobody
knows. The maker doesn't know; the
buyer doesn't know. Barbers say that
eveu the price doesn't seem to make
much difference. You may get a good
razor for a quarter or a bad one for $5.
And the same razor will get a contrary
edge today, so that you can hardly
shave with it, and tomorrow, without
additional sharpening, It will work like
a charm.
One tap will go on a bolt easily and
stay there. Another tap will hardly go

Tnwaft! cleansit**** is* 99 necessary as outward bathing. To keep the
Dowels free and regular is of even greater importance than to keep
the skin-pores from becoming clogged. The neglect ol either invites disease. Everyone needs a natural laxative occasionally, to
free the bowels of accumulated impurities    For this purpose take
the greatest boon ever offered to those who suffer from the ills
that follow constipation. For over fifty years Beecham's Pills have
been famous as a Stomach corrective, a Liver regulator and Bowel
laxative. They never gripe nor cause pain. Powerful purgatives
are dangerous. Avoid them. Use Beecham's Pills. They give relief without doing violence to any organ. Their action is in harmony with physical laws. Take them regularly and the necessity
for their use becomes less frequent. They are a natural laxative
and a positive cure for Constipation, Biliousness, Indigestion, Sick

Men That Might Have Bean Called
Human Encyclopedias.
It has been said of Macaulay that
not only did he retain in his prodigious memory all that he had ever
learned, but that he had learned all
manner ot things no other scholar
would have retained. Aside from his
astonishingly comprehensive grasp of
many branches of human knowledge,
he was specially proud of the fact
that he knew whole libraries by heart.
It was his boast that in the event of
a wholesale destruction of certain
classics he would be able to supply
the deficiency out of his memory. It
was claimed among other things that
he could recite "Paradise Lost" without a moment's pause for refreshing
his recollection and that to reel off all
the plays of Shakespeare was only
child's play to  him.
Another English scholar of astonishing erudition was Lyulph Stanley,
oi whom Lowell said, "He knows
three times as many facts as any man
whatever had any business to know."
Stanley is said to have had only
one rival, Palgrave, the compiler of
"The Golden Treasury." "It's an
even chance which " will return
alive," was said when Stanley and
Palgrave went on a trip together.
When they did come back, it is related, Palgrave was pale, emaciated,
silent. But Stanley seemed unmoved

Another human encyclopedia waB
Buckle, author of "The History ol
Civilization." One night, it is said,
he was laying down the law on sundry topics with a pomposity that
caused the table to quake. At last he
put forth some statement about the
burning of u witch, setting the date
about a century out of the way. S'an-
ley, who was present, had borne some
preceding inaccuracies very well, with
only a shaking of the head and a
reddening of the face.
But at thia juncture his self control gave way and he leaped to his
feet. Extending his hand, lie piped
forth in a vigorous treble: "I beg your
pardon, sir, but the last witch was
burned at such and such a place, in
such and such circumstances. And
her name was So-und-so, and you will
find all about it in a book to which
I can easily refer you and which you
evidently don't know."
And so torrents of imprisoned
knowledge were poured on Buckle's
head until the historian of civilization sat wrathful, extinguished, mute.
But in a little while he had his revenge. Some one had mentioned a
new dictionary as a good one. "It
is," said Buckle most solemnly, "one
of the few dictionaries I have read
through with pleasure."

Cure it by Enriching the Blood
with Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
There is only one way by which
rheumatism can be cured. It must
be treated through the blood. Liniments and outward applications may
give temporary relief, but they can't
possibly cure the trouble. And while
you are experimenting with liniments the trouble is every day becoming more firmly rooted in the
system, and more difficult to cure.
The poisonous acid that causes rheumatism must be driven out of the
blood, and you can only do this by
making new, rich, red blood through
the use of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
Mr. Chas. H. Lumley, of Brickford,
Ont . is one of the best known farmers in Lambton county. About three
years ago, while Mr. Lumley was engaged in threshing, he became overheated, and this was followed by a
severe chill that smarted the rheumatic pains. Mr. Lumley says: "I did
not think anything of it at the time
as I was accustomed to being exposed
to all kinds of weather. As a result
I was unable to go about next morning. I haa severe pains in my arms
and legs which I treated at first with
the usual home remedies. As these
did not help me, and the trouble was
growing worse, tlie ianiily doctor was
sent for, but he did not have any
better success. He told nie I was
suffering from a severe attack of
rheumatism, and there can be no
doubt about it, as I was confined to
my home about four months before I
was fortunately advised to try Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills. I sent for a
supply, and it was not long beiore I
found they were helping me, and by
the time I had taken a ha'f dozen
boxes the trouble had entirely disappeared. In other respects the pills
also greatly improved my health, and
I never 'elt better in my life than
I have since taking them. I therefore most cheerfully recommend Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills to other similar
Dr. W'lliams' Pink Pills make
cures of this kind after doctors and
aommon medicines fail, because they
actually make new blood. They don't
cure the mere symptoms. They go
right to the root of the trouble in
the blood. That is why this medicine
cures anaemia, indigestion, neuralgia
palpitation of the heart, and the headaches and backaches brought on by
the ailments that fill the lives of so
many women with misery. Do not
take any pills without the full name,

Some of the Trials of Writers.
Professor Lounsbury of Yale calls attention to some of the difficulties of
EngllBh grammar with which writers
have constantly to struggle In their desire to avoid obscurity and be correct
at the same time. In Harper's Magazine Professor Lounsbury takes up tbe
use of "whose" as a relative pronoun
referring to Inanimate objects and justifies its use since nothing better can
be devised. He discusses the use of
the singular pronoun with the word
"everybody," as in "There everybody
met his friends." This ls manifestly
Inadequate, and "his or her friends" ls
clumsy. Jane Austen, writes the professor, avoided the difficulty by using
the plural pronoun, as iu her sentence,
"They say everybody Is In love once
In their lives." He thinks no satisfactory solution of this problem can, in
tbe nature of the case, ever be reached.
A Feast of Kisses.
"I once visited tbe little town of Hal-
magen, in Roumanla," said a strolling
player who used to wander Into the
odd corners of the world, "but even I���
and my hair is getting a little thin, and
I wouldn't take first prize In a beauty
contest���got enough kisses in one day
to last au average lifetime. It seems
that Halmagen from time Immemorial
bas had au annual festival, and on this
day the population of about eighty villages come swarming In. Every young
woman of the town, married or single,
goes out on this duy carrying a vessel
of wlue and a small garland of flowers.
To every visitor they offer a sup of
wine and a kiss."

A Glimpse of the One Time Methods
In Scotch Schools.
To the work of supervisor of schools
ln Scotland Mr. Johu Kerr devoted a
number of years. In his bonk, "Other
Memories, Old and New," he hns set
down some amusing Illustrations of the
unintelligent way in which the school
work was sometimes conducted.
Tbe revised code of education which
was iutroduced in 1SII2 made provision
for nothing but reading, writing arid
arithmetic In tbelr barest forms. There
was no suggestlou about grammar, geography, history or Intelligence in any
study. Explanation of the reading lesson was uot demanded, and therefore
It was neglected in some of the schools.
The following is au example:
The lesson was one giving an account of a clever dog which had rescued a child from drowning. It was
said that the dog wus caressed by the
parents of the child. I asked wbat was
the meaning of the word "caressed,"
and the answer came at once, "Made
of fond led."
On referring to tbe list of words at
the top of tbe pag<* I found the explanation given was, "made of, fondled."
Wishing to find out if any child ln
the class had got a glimmering of tbe
meaning, I wgut from top to bottom
and got from every child nothing but
"made of fond led," prououueed as four
words, to which they attached no meaning whatever.
The teacher was surprised that I was
not satisfied with the Intelligence of
the teaching.

Roger, tbe great French tenor, a sensitive bouI, was prone to take offense

flrst song magnificently, but no one
paid him the slightest attention, -and
the guests continued to talk their loudest Presently tbe host thought tthe
time had come for another song and
sent for Roger. He could not be found
and that evening was seen no more.
Next day tbere came a note from him.
accompanied by 1,500 francs. The note
ran something like this:
"I have the honor to return the 1,200

Book Auction Back In 1732.
John Montgomerle. governor of ths
province of New York, died on July L
