GREEN  About one hundred voters assembled  in Mercantile Hall on Saturday evening to hear the speakers who had  oosao to attend the Conservative Association meeting here.  ??S_Qtily Rafter 8 o'clock the speaker*  awived. S.E. Watson was the rf_tfr-  man of the evening. The first speaker  called upon was J P. Fink,, of Cranbrook. He expressed his pleasure in  being present; - Referred to the last  occasion on which he? visited Creston  during the Fall Fair. He hoped Oreston  growers would again go to Cranbrook  to exhibit their fruit and wished them  success in?their, work. He spoked"?a  long acquaintance with Hon. -j&.??_y  Green and thought we were fortunate  to have him as a representative tijs.i  Ottawa.  He was followed by A. E. Watts,  of Wattsburg who also spoke very  highly of Mr. Green.  The chairman then called upon the  speaker of the evening and all eyes  wers, turned to the platform and  during the half hOur; or so that followed the a ttrention of the whole meeting was rivetted on the speaker. He  said there waB really very little of  Dominion affairs that affected us  vitally although we were interested  iii Other affairs indirectly.  He spoke of a visiirhe rmade to our  Post Offlce?and said that whereas he  could not promise _ InuHi-g because  the" population of th������ fown was. too  snaall to^'justify the government in  putting one up at the present time,  he would endeavor to procure an added  appropriation for the renting of a  larger and betterb-nildln*. He mentions  ed the telephone matter and said  that he thougrht that was more par-  ticulary a matter for the Provincial  government.  He spoke of the Frnit Marks Act  and the parfc. he had. in its introduction  and used it to show that tho government was really doing something for  the benefit of the agriculturist. He  mentioned also the lead bounty and  tne great advantage it has been Co  tho miner. He said that the next  groat movement would be in the mining  interests of the province.  He told, of tbe millions the government was spending on the Fad do  ooaBt and ended a most interesting  speoh with a strong appeal to the  loyalty of his hearers to Buppirt tbe  naval policy of the Borden administration. His address made a very fine  Impression and when he finished the  audience showed their interest aud  approbation iu demonstrations, of rapturous applause.  After the address tho members of the  Conservative Association remained and  enjoyed a smoker. There wns a line  i-us-ial program and a httlo bnilness  was transuoted. aiid just boforo midnight the mooting broke up by singing  tbe national anthem.

Barney Barnato's Comedy  In the journal South Africa.tho lato  Sutton Vane, the dramatist, one told  this story of Barney Barnato: He  ���������was. tht hest amateur melodramatic  actor I ever met. A little rough, so  is a diamond, but the fire is there.  He played Claude Prollo in Victor Hugo's Esmeralda splendidly. I playing  Quasimodo, the hunchback, -with him.  In the great scene on the parapets the  hunchback cries to throw the monk  (Frollo) into tlio street. Mr. Barnato  resisted vigorously. He seized ine by  my bump, which came off in his hand.  It was a sponge bag stuffed witb various articles. He slook his fist at  ma and then, with a quiet smile,  threw the hump from the cathedral  roof. Looking over, he exclaimed:  Good heavens!

Scully's  reminiscences.      It was J\nr.

Cultured Hindus  In Bengal there aro about 70,000.-  000 of people and they boast of perhaps the best culture in India at th������  present? time. The languago as a  writen language is only fifty yoars  old. Though for ovor a thousand  years it has heen a dialect, thoro is in  Indian history unfortunately no trace  of Bengftll having been an important  literary tongue. Th languago originates from Sanskrit, th mother tongue  from which ovory jthor Indian languago has borrowed its alphabet, grammar and vocabulary; but unlike the  othora, Bengali nover shrinks from  gathering now materials. There are  numerou$ Persian, French, Arabic and  ISnglish words incorporated in it. and  tho wonder of it is "that, instead of  having been degr-uK.l into some vulgar form like pidgin English.

When the smoke had cleared away  and the wreck, which wasn't a serious  affaii*. was pulled apart. Pat's friends  found him sitting beside the track  holding his head in one hand and his  leg in the other, said members of  course, not being detached.

A youngster was much depressed  by loneliness. His own brother had  gone away for a week, .and the lad  across the street, with whom he played occasionally, was ill in bed. Moreover, there were no toys that he  found amusing.  In this sad.state his mother found  him. Perhaps, she suggested, I can  play with you. What is it you wish-  to play, Indians?  No. mam, sighed the boy. I wish I  was two little dogs, so I could play  together.  Exhausted -Torn Asthma. Manv  who read these words know the terri-  rible drain upon health anC strenKth,  which comes in the train of asthmatic troubles. 7������any do not realize,  however, that there is j.p true remedy which will surely stop this drain.'  Dr. J. D. Kellogg's Asthma Remedy  is a wonderful check to this enervating ailment. It has a countless record of relief to its credit. It is sold  almost everywhere.  He had been around from church to  church trying to find a congenial congregation, and finally he stopped at a  little church just as the congregation  read with the minister:  We have loft undone those things  which we ought to havo dono, and we  have dono thoso things which wo  ought not to have dono. \  Tho man dropped into a pew with a  sigh of relief.  Thank goodness, ho said. I've  found my crowd at last.

Seville's Tower of Giralda  From   its  great  antiquity   alone  if  from nothing elsa it is plain that the  Giralda at Seville could not have been j  studied from the tower oC the Madison Square Garden in New fork which I  the American will recall when he sees  it.     If the case must be reversed and  we must   allow   that   the    Madison  Square tower was  studied from the  Giralda, we must still recognize that  it is no servile copy, but in its frank  imitation has   a   grace   and   beauty  which  achieve  originality.   Still,  the  Giralda  is   always  the  Giralda,  and  though there had been no Saint Gaud-  ens to tip it  summit with zueh a flying  footed nymph as poises on our tower,  the figure of Faith which crowns it is  at least a wood weather vane and from,  its office of turning gives the mighty  bell tower its name.     Liosg centuries  before the tower was a belfry it served the mosque, which the cathedral  now replaces, as a minaret for the muezzin to call the faithful to prayer, but  it was then only two-thirds as high.  There is much spaculation ovor tho  question, but llttlo " .ope that Colombia  will, so to speak, put on a silk hat for  tho canal opening and discard its Panama. *   "  Brino'ia It Home*  s wuh wending an���������aw���������account of  a wooinn lining i-on-d lo rirath by u  beaiitly r-w rlonirlwr Irrum*, i-r*inarked  young Diullelgh. \V- lly, 1 can't lm'-  ������������lnr> a iiion.

I secured tho position through a relationship on his wife's side. I have held  tli������ position for -hree years. Before  that I read law. For some time l  have known that Blr. Fleming used a  drug of some kind. Until a week  ago I did not know what it was. On  the 9th of May Mr. Fleming sent for  me. . I was in Pittsburg at the  time; and he was at home. He was in  a terrible condition���������riot sleeping at  all���������and he said he was beiDg followed by some person who meant to kill  him; Finally he asked me to get him  some cocaine, and when he had taken  it he was more like himself. I thought  the pursuit was only in his own head.  Ke had a, man named Carter on guard  In his house and acting as butler.  There was trouble of some sort in  the organization; I do not know just  what.. Mr. Schwartz came here to  meet Mr. Fleming, and it seemed  there was money needed. . Mr. Fleming had to have it at once. He gave  me some securities to take to Platts-  burg: and turn into money. I went on  the 10th.  Was that the day Tvlr. Fleming disappeared? the chief interrupted.  Yes. He went to the White Cat  and stayed there. No one but the  caretaker and one other man knew  he was there, On ths night o- the  21st I came back, having turned my  securities Into money. I carried it in  a package in a small Russia leather  bag-that never left my hand for a moment. Mr? Knox here suggested that  I had put it down and it had been exchanged for one Just like it, but I did  not let ft out of my hand on. that  journey until I put it down on the  porch at the BeUwood ho--se while I  tried to get ih. I live at Bellwood  ���������with the Misses Maitland. sisters of]  Mr. Fleming's deceased wife. I don*t|  pretend to know how it happened, but  while I was trying to get into the  house it was rifled. Mr. Knox will  bear me out in that. I found my  grip empty.  1 amrmed ix in a word.  What was in the hag? the chief  asked.  Waldrop tried to remember.  A pair of pajamas, he said, two military brushes, arid a clot-heshrush. two  or three soft bosomed shirts, perhaps  a half dozen collars and a suit of  onderwear.  And all this was taken, as well as  the money?  The hag ..as empty, except for my  railroad schedule.  -Go on, if you please, the detective  aaid cheerfully.  : think Wi.rurop realized the absurdity of trying to make any one believe that part of the story. He threw  up his head, as if he intended to say  aothing further.  Go on, I urged. If he could clear  himself he must. I could not go back  to Margery Fleming and tcjl her that  her father had been murdered add her  lover was accused cf the crime.  Tho bag was empty, he repeated,  t had not been five minutes trying to  open tha shutters, and yet the bag  had been rifled. Mir. Knox here  found it among the UoT/ers below the  veranda empty.  The chief eyed me with awakened  Interest.  You also live at Bellwood, Mr.  Knox?  No; I am attorney to Miss Letitla  Maltland aud was thero ono night as  her gueBt. I -"ound the bag as Mr.  Wardrop  described,  empty.  The chief turned back to Wardrop.  ��������� How much money v.-as there in It  when���������you left it?

Y   ,;  Wardrop flushed.  He was not himself, anil���������well, it  meant a great deal to him. And he  was out of cocaine. I left him raging, and when 1 went home?I learned  that Miss Jane Maitland had disappeared, been abducted at the time my  satchel had been emptied. It's no  wonder I question my sanity.  . And then, tonight? the chief persisted.   .  Tonight I felt that some one would  have to look r.fter Mr. Fleming. I  was afraid he would kill himself. It  was a bad time to leave while Miss  Jane was missing. But when I got  to the White Cat I found him dead.  He was sitting with his back to the  door and his head on the table.  Was the revolver in his hand?  Yes.  You are sure? from blunter.    Isn't  fl      ..       11. .X      TIT���������        ITT 3...N.

Wardrop's face twitched nervously.  You have been misinformed, he replied, but no one was impressed by  hie tone. It was wavering, uncertain.  From Hunter's face I judged it had  been a random shot and had landed  unexpectedly well.  How many people knew that Mr.  Fleming had been hiding at the White  Cat? from the chief.  Very few���������besides myself, only a  man who looks after the clubhouse in  the mornings and Clarkson, the cashier of the Borough bank, who met  him there once by appointment.

You are right about the automobile,  Hunter said. The mayor sent his car  away as I left to follow Mr. Wardrop.  "i'he sounds you he-ftrd w^re not shots.  It is s strange thing, the chief reflected, that a revolve.- could be fired  in the upper room of an ordinary  dweiliusr house, while that house was  filled with people, and nobody hear lb  Were there any powder marks on the  body -  None, Hunter said.  The chief got up stifily.  Thank you very much, gentlemen,  Hunter. I would like to see you for a  few minutes.  I think Wardrop was dazed at finding himself free.

We took  a night electric car to Wynton and  walked three mil^3 to Bellwood. Neither of us vas talkative, and I imagine we were both thinking of Margery  find the news she would havo to hear.  It had been raining, and once Wardrop turned around to where we could  hear the detective splashing along.  They came up together presently, and  tll_   fllT*cv���������   f\V   lie   l-rlirlr C.A    r.n     tfiilrlrirm   r.f  Immaterial things.  At the door Wardrop turned to the  detective with a faint smile. It is  raining again, he said. You'd better  come in. You needn't worry about  me. I'm not going to run away, and  there's a couch in the library.  The detective grinned, and in the  light from the hall I recoguiaed'the  man I had followed to the police station two nights before.  I guess I will, he said, looking apologetically ..at his muddy clothes. This  thing is only a 'matter of^form, anyway.  But he didn't lie down nn the couch.  He took a chair in the ha** near the  foot of tho stairs, *v '. wo left him  thero with tho evening paper and a  lamp.  Wardrop looked so wretched that.I  asked him into my room and mixed  him somo whisky and water. When  I had glvon him a cigar he began to  4ook a littlr less hopeless.  You have been a darned Bight better to me than I would hav* been to  you under the circumstances, ho said  gratefully.

Recent astronomical  work suggests that "le sun and its  planets form a single unit in a vast  system, the stars^ in which, though  separated by enormous distances,  have a common centre of gravity, and  in response to gravitation all' move  in unison like a stupendous machine.  The paths of these stars, instead of  being nearly circular, like those of  the planets around Yne sun, are mufeh  like the osciliatiohs of a pendulum.  The calculations show that on this  elongated course our sun must travel  400,000,000 years before completing a  revolution and that it passed near the  center less than a million, perhaps riot  nacre than 300,000 years ago and is  now-on the outward stretch?

An Irishman was fishing in a river  when it began to rain heavily. Pat,  Dot rieRiHrig to ������*et soaked "through  sought shelter under a railway bridge  spanning ihe river, and here he plied  his rod with true Waltonic zeal, utterly regardless of the trains that incessantly thundered to and fro overhead.. Presently another individual  appeared on the scene and politely  asked.Pat what lie was doing.  Fishing, was the laconic retort.  ,Tli'S* -stranger laughed. Pray what  Is tlie use of fishing, under the bridge  while*such an inf������.-nal ribise continues.'  Oh, shut up, man, replied PaV 'inv  dirrnantly. Sure, ye don't Imow these  flsh.

The principal  advocate of the establishment of a new  department says that the proper work  of a hygiene minister is now scattered  over five departments, and what he  asks, would become of tho national de-  fenso if military and naval affairs wore  administered piecemeal.

When  Charlotte Bronte first -saw George  Henry Lewes she said that he was  wonderfully like her sister Emily, but  this is unfortunate for Emily since  Lewes was very much like a baboon.  Possibly the comparison was due to a  sisterly candor that so seldom,errs on  the side of mercy. Thanks to photography, the historian of the future  wii! not be in doubt as to the appearance of celebrities of the present generation, but'he is likely to have his  own opinion as to those worth knowing about.  Corns cripple the feet and make  walking a torture, yet sure relief in  the shape of Holloway's Corn Cure is  within reach of all.  Origin of the Dead Letter Office  What was the reason for our office  getting its name of the dead letter office, as it is often called? said an Glacial in the returned letter office.'Well,  it was originally started In order to  return to ihe senders ail letters, etc.,  addressed to people who turned out to  be dead. The need for such an arrangement became. evident from the  number of valuable inclosures contained In such missives, and that the old  ..wi.ii.Oa     Oi-lii     Jiilgs^iS     iii     UiS     UUJJilit-  ment is evident from the fact that the  bags containing 7returned letters are  black In color.  Yes, there are people who Imagine  us to be mystenously connected-.with  death itself, and some time back we  received* a peculiar letter from one  of them. Within a week of- having a  letter returned to her-a certain person  living in the same house had died, and  consequently the writer, evidently associating her fI'lena's death directly  with us, begged us in future never to  send back letters again, but to burn  them instead.

Mrs. Burns���������Yes, she said she must  havo a month's notice before, ehe  would think of leaving.  Yellow hair Is seldom a running  mate with genius, according to a wise  C-y from England.

The Intention was to make a torpedo ^assault on  the vessel, but after the attacks of  the finest firing ships in the flrst three  battle squadrons, which were witnessed by Mr. Churchill and other admiralty lords, the Empress of India turn  ed turtle and disappeared.  The flrst onslaughts were made by  individual ships, w? ich severely pep  pered the target with tfreir, smaller  weapons. Thon the 12-inch guns  were used, and finally the 13.5 inch  guns were fired at range of over 8  miles. When the? squadron firing by  the second battle squadron took place  the Empress of India showed signs of  doom. Flames burst out, and a pause  was made in the bombardment, while  tugs pumped water on to the burning  ship.

Ba_cn__M_M���������_H_n_c__acaa   Is* it WoVth It?  Does it cost more in doctor's fees  to keep 100,000 persons in health today than it did 50 years ago? I put the  question to two very eminent Philadelphia physicians���������or rather any physician and one surgeon.  They both answered yes, but they  both qualified their answers in Insisting that the 100,000 persona are kept  in much better health than half a cen-  [ tury ago, and also that they live, on  the average, considerably longer.  Said the physician: The average age  of adults is now greater than it used  to "be." Medical science does prolong  life. In proportion to population we  have more old people, although it often happens that science -keeps incurable invalids alive, where formerly it  could not. * That process, of coursejj  is sometimes expensive.?���������  Y- J  The surgeon was quite emphatic;  Surgery saves some lives in Philadelphia every day which the surgery of  the sixties could nofchave saved. Then  there was riot even an attempt iri  many cases.  "This saving costs money, and tha*t  ls why 100,000 people now pay much  more to the doctors every year than  100,000 people paid when Lincoln was  president.     But isn't it worth it?  An  Experienced  Horseman  Solemnly  Declares Nothing Is so Satisfactory as _Nervilfne  Says Nerviline Is Fine   Liniment  "After fifty .ears' expeiience in  raising horseo I can safely testify that  no remedy gives such good results for  an, all-round stable liniment as Nerviline." Thus opon.. tho very earnest  letter of J. J. Evanston, who lives  near Wellington. "I had a very valuable horao that took distemper a  month ago, and was afraid I was going to lose him. His throat swelled  and hard lumps developed. His nostrils ran and he had a terrible cough:  I tried different remedies, but was unable to relievo my horse of his pain  and suffering till I started to, use Nerviline. I mixed a bottle of Nerviline  and sweet oil and rubbed the mixture  on the throat and chest three, times  a day, and you would scarcely believe  the way that horse picked up. Nerviline cured him. I also have used  Nerviline for colic in horses and cows,  and earnestly recommend it to every  man that is raising stock."  For strains, sprains, swellings, colic, distemper, coughs, and colds, no  liniment will prove so efficacious in the  stable as -''Nerviline"���������it's good for  man t beast, for internal or external  use. Wherever there is pain, Nerviline will cure it. Refuse substitutes  Large size bottles. 50c.;; trial size, 25c,  at all,dealers, or the Catarrhozone CO.,  Buffalo, N.Y.,,and Kingston, Ont. .    A.
