First, the committee were not instructed to call for tenders . but to  purchase articles mentioned by the  annonymous writer. This committee went to the(, several store?,  asked to, have ��������� prices quoted on  articles required to be purchased  with the . understanding that the"  lowest, quotation, on any article'  would be accepted. The articles in  question;- blankets, the ,committee  specified grey color to the merchants. * None of the grey on which  prices were quoted were, satisfac-.  ,  ��������� <���������      ���������_,.-. -,      -    ��������� ^  to.ry as to, quality in any of the  stores." In the last store visited,  viz.,Simon Leiser's, a. red - blanket  was shown which met   the require-  t -��������� ' **  ments both as   to  weight,  quality  and price.    -The   committee   here  unwittingly violated a rule of busi-'  ness courtesy by  not .immediately,  going to the other stores   and asking quotations.for. sifnilia'r blankets,  they,having decidedv to   take  none  of the grey   blankets/upon  which,  prices had been quoted   but closing  at once on' the red < blanket   above  ��������� ,'      "V,  -       ���������        ' *- ���������.  mentioned. -  ~" ���������'        .'      .---       '  .- Now, when .the "committee'*s ' at-  tentioD whs called to. tneir'.'bVe^eh.  of buhintss etiquette, thej' immc;di-x  ate[y   apologized,    cancelled    the  alj ve mentioned purchase, and no-*  ������������������tified the several  stores   interest* d.-  that they were at liberty to  tender-j  011 the blankets' in question^on the  following Saturday evening   at the  regular meeting of the Board.

'    ,    -      ^  Nearly every coarse fisher- who has  b������en 'down to the Norfolk waters to  ledger for bream knows the Red House  at  Cantley,  on  the  Yare.    The  present  ,'building is modern, but there was a i-.od  House on the same spot many years he-  fore . the existing licensing laws were  heard of���������when the landlord used to orew  bis'own beer and a cnsfc'or two, of spirit.-:  that had never paid duty could be smuggled up the, river. -       ''  \t the beginning of the century Bill..  Daniel earned a precarious livehhondby  eel fishing. His home was an old iai-  mouth vawl tarred over', with a sbedlike  edifice o%;e'r the stern that made a su.U-  cient cabin for the oft man when be was  sober enough ol" nights to scull down to  it in his punU'rom the Red House, Hi*  elementary houseboat always lay in  tne  ��������� dike against the Devil's House that now  is, but then was not. and Billy had tush-  ioiied a large eel tank beneath it and kept  " his "slimy riches therein. Ho sent up u  load to Norwich, when he had one, by an  up bound wherry and disp.osed of his  small catches at the Red House or at the  village inland. '  Billy was getting old and began to be  dissatisfied with his houseboat as a dwell-  in" on the misty, autumn nights and in  the biting east winds and frost and snow  of -winter. His desire was toward-a brick  and he' grumbled to hims-W  He was-a lonely-man and did  l'J':-  I-!?'  Of  cottage,  about it.    ��������� - ,  much self communing aloud. He did.not  live in'the savor of sanctity.o He drank  he swore, he-smuggled, and he poached  and was a thorough paced rascal, i-lus  did not influence Parson Sparrow aga n^t  him. The. worthy divine was one ot the  hard drinking Norfolk parsons of the old  school and conlfl drink1'and; swear with  Billy himself. Indeed the two were good  friends, each looking on the other as a  sportsman. Many,a good day's pike fish-  in"' did they have together, and many a  tree pound eels did Billy take up io tne  parsonage to be stewed in sound port.  Before the nets went down for the autumn "run" Billy got most of his eels by  bobbing, at which he was an expert.    ^  One summer Billy had not been doing  as well as usual, \vhethcr it was that  his hand was selling'shaky or his luc*<  ��������� bad'"does not appear, but it. is certa.n  that his prospecls of getting a cottage  seemed to him poorer than ever. ^  On a hot night in June he was out booking half a mile below his houseboat.  The night was darfc. There was ho moon.  ������ond the stars were clouded over. There  -was scarce a breath of air. It was ni-ar  midnight, and the silence was only broken by a white owl and the ceaseless  whisper of the reeds on the road���������a perfect night for bobbing, but Billy fared  badly and cursed as he sat with a pule  in each hand waiting for the tugs that  were few and far between.  "Dura it!" he said. "The devil's in the  eels. I wish I had the old varmint here  along o' me. Perhaps he'd give us a bit  o* luck���������bouse an all.'*  As he spoke he heard a mutBed sound  of sculls coming up the' river. "Now. I  wunner," he continued, "whew that be  a-comin up hare this time o' night dis-  tarbin the eels, blarm him!"  A punt came quickly and very quietly  up. A gaunt figure clad in dark fenman's  clothes was sculling backward. He cased  against Billy's punt and "held" up till  the way was stopped.  ���������"Wheer be yew a-comin tew?' said  the old mtui.    "Yew sling your hook."  "What's the,matter/William?" said the  stranger. "I've come to do you a good  turn if you'll help me."  "I'll help yew,out o' this sharp enow  if yew doan't sheer off." growled Billy.  "Don't he a fool, William," said the  stranger.   "Listen arid see."  Pointing to the four quarters in  the stranger spoke again.  "By the murmur otitic rend,  By the whisper of the reed,  Hail, from river, broad, and pond!  Hail, ye goodly tribe <-#eels     ,  Ere the daw-n upon ye steals!  Hero is that on which lo feed."  Billy declared to Parson Sparrow afterward    that    the . poles    were    almost  chucked out of��������� his hands and he "worn-^t  sartain as how he worn't to be the fewd.  He hauled up and landed what he called  a  "skepful."     The   whole  water  around  was alive with eels. .,   ..   '  "There you are, William," said the  stranger.    "Don't be frightened."  "It'ud take an uglier face than yewrn  to frighten   me,"  said  Billy,  who  knew  not fear.   "But whew be yew, maester.'  he continued, smitten suddenly civil.  "Never mind that. Would you like to  alwavs get as many eels as you want-  enough  to build yo-your cottage and set  you up for life?"  "Who naturalligh." said Billy, and nil  the time his punt rocked with the motion  turn  "Aye. bor: that will I," said Billy, for  whom fa'nev swearing had no terror.  The stranger laid a lobworm, an eel  and a piece of ribbon in Billy's hand.  "Repeat after me," he said, and in the  manner of the bridegroom in the marriage-service Billy swore:  "By the worm of the dewy night.'by  the scalcless fish of the mud and by*, the  snalcy  ribbon   of  the__river.   I   swear  to  obey."  "Very good���������William."-.said the stranger. " ''Now all you have to do is this:  Whenever'you want eels, come here alone  and call them near midnight as I did.  They will 'come." He repeated his incantation until Billy knew it, aud the  river boiled with eels.  "At midnight," the stranger went on,  "on the third night of the third month in  everv third year from'tonight you must  kneel in a corner of the house you will  build and say: , '  "I'll join the devil on Slrumpshirc hill,      <���������  I'll dance with the devil round Strumpshiro null.  When my breath is out and my heart is still,  My soul to the devil with all good will.  "You must then follow what comes to  you.    Swear!" . -  "All right, bor: I swear," said .Billy.  "But that ',ud be a masterpiece to see  me a-dancin round Strumpshiro mill, devil or no devil." -. - '  Billy knew Strumpshiro mill. It stood  and still stands on 'the top of the only  decent hill in the' neighborhood. iar-  mouth roads can be seen from it- on a  clear dav. Evidently it .was a Norfolk  bracken at the beginning of the century.  and Billy was in for a local Walpurgis-  nacht. ". .- ' ,  ��������� The stranger,said no more, but backed  out and in hdlf a dozen strokes had disappeared, leaving the old man;, half dazed,  but jubilant. When his punt was, full.  he  paddled  back  to  his   houseboat  and  slept.' ! ��������� --  The next morning be picked out a tine  brace of eels and went up to- see his  friend, Parson Sparrow. He told his  adventure of the previous night and held  up the two' eels as corroborative evidence.  "Ha, ha!" laughed the parson. "Why.  Daniel, you were drunk!''; .,.������.���������,  ''I tell yew I worn't, parson, retorted  Billy! "Do yew tome a.n look at the  catch." ,. .   .  "Well, well." said Sparrow, "youM beL-  ter try the dodge, and if it is successful,  why, vou must build-a round house, without a' corner in it and cheat the devil.  Ha. ha!   Eh?" ���������    '  "That I will, bor," said Billy, delight-.  ed. "I'll cozen Old Nick yet. But don't  yew tell nobody on it, sir, will yew?"  The parson chuckled and promised to  "keep the secret. - "���������  The dodge was successful. Night art-  er night did the well get filled, .and with  fine eels. Billy grew tired of bobbing  and made a large, line meshed scoop net,  and <after repeating the charm he simply  shoveled out as many-fish as he -wanted.  He was drunk all day, but sobered up at  night, when he wanted eels, for he found  the incantation too much -to get his  , tongue around'when he was in liquor, and  the eels would not come  for misquota*-  ,-tiohs.        " __ " "  He? soon saved enough to build a cottage.    He leased a few acres against-his  boat from' the lord of the manor at a rent  of four stone of eels per annum, planted  his willows and engaged a local builder.  A round,  thatched  house  was  soon   run  up under  Billy's supervision,  without  a  corner in it.    The old man got the parson  to come to the housewarming, and under  the influence of Red House old ale and  smuggled brandy the Rev. John Sparrow  concocted  a halting screed to -be 'cut in  stone over the door.    He said,    Hie,  a  shervant o'  tho Lord c'n rhyme   s well  's the dev'l."   This was it:        .  "The devil may come, and tho devil may go;     -  The devil mav rave, and tlie devil may swear;  r won't care a curse for the old hoodie crow  While   my   house   stand9   round   as ��������� it   is,   not  square."        ���������  The s������?eed was duly cut, and Billy set-  - tied* down  in" his  cottage to * many  eels,  much drink and great content. .  The third night of the'-third month of  the third year came in the .course of time,  and Billv went to sleep-drunk and hiccoughing. "I can't kneel in mo; coarner,  'cause there ain't no coarhef."'   '     -       ���������  The" night was unusuklly^ close io)\  March, and. what was still more' unusual,  shortly after midnight a heavy thunderstorm' broke over* Cantley. The. people in.  the Red House said afterward that, the  lightning played all around Billy's "house  and the crash of the thunder-was.terrific,  and the storm made off to the northeast,  Strumpshiro way, without disturbing; the  drunken man. He woke in the morning  in the sunshine with a great thirst and  a desire for a small beer. ' He staggered  out of bed. across to his*, cupboard, where  the cask was and  suddenly stopped.^  "Wha, blame my old heart alive." he  said, "hare's a coarner!" . He looked  " 'mazedlike" about him. Everything  was as usual save that his house was  square, not round. ",���������"...        . .-.      .  As quickly as he could he went out:  Tho screed over the door was gone. A  black smear like an eel was in its place.  He lost no time in getting to the parsonage, where he found Parson Sparrow  breakfasting off home brewed ale_ and  roast beef. The parson looked a bit serious at first after hearing of the transformation, but after a-mighty pull at the  ale he cheered up. "Why. Daniel, man,,  you must sell your house-now; that s all.  You only swore to kneel to ^ the devil in  the house you were A build."  "Right yew be, bor!'-' said Billy, roaring with laughter.  The parson bought the house for a -fishing box._and there .the tale ends. Whether the magic of the incantation continued  history saveth not. That is all that is  known of the-way Billy Daniel cheated  the devil. .'���������������������������..   ,i'  I do not vouch for the veracity of* all  the details of the legend, but I know the.  cottage is now square, and there is no  screed over the door. The whole house  is so dirty that .the mark of the scaleless  fish has merged in the general blackness.  The probability is that the devil got  both Billy and the parson, after all, so he  may have got his own back in the end.-  Blaek and White.   .  ���������tne tngaie mrd relies on his skill in  taking advantage of every varying cur-  runt of air, and the skeleton of the one  indicates great muscular power, while.  thnt of the-other shows its absence.  No other bird has, such proportionately  great muscles as the humming bird. rrhe  keel of the sternum, or breastbone, from  which' these muscles arise, runs from one  end of the body to the other, while- at  the same- time it projects downward,  like the keel of a modern racing yacht.  These muscles drive at the rate of several hundred strokes a minute a pair of  small, rigid wings, the outermost bones  of which arc very long, while the- innermost are very-short, a feature calcn-'  kited to, give the greatest amount of motion at the tip of the wing with the least  movement of the, bones of the upper .arm.-  to which the driving muscles are attach-'  cd.        '��������� '','���������,'  .

THOUSANDS OF ANAEMIC GIRLS  HURRYING TO THE GRAVE.  A Young liady at - Cobourjc,   Out., Whose  ' Case Was rroiiounced Hopeless, Tells  HotrShe Regained Health and Strength  ���������A tebson to Mothers'.  Anaemia is the term used by doctors  to indicate poverty of the blood., The  alarming, especially among young  girlsr and a large percentage of the  altogether too 'numerous cases of consumption which annually ravage the  country have their origin in this  trouble. The first indication of anaemia is a pale, sallow or waxy complexion. This is folloAved by loss of  appetite, frequent headaches, indispo-  tion to exertion, swelling or "limbs,  violent heart palpitation and frequently' fainting fits. These symptoms  may not all be present, but the more  there are the greater the urgency for  prompt and effective treatment,which  should be persisted in until all traces  of the trouble have, vanished. Among  the thousands who have been brought  near, to the. brink of the n'rave \\-b\n  this trouble,, and ultimately restored  to health through', the use, of Pr.  Williams' Pink 'Pills,- is Miss Bella  Boyd, an estimable young lady whose  home is at Cobourg. Miss Boyd gives  her experience as follows :--��������� <  "It is nearly ten years since my illness first commenced, and although I  was doctoring more or less' I received  little or no benefit, as the doctors  did not" seem to understand my trouble. Xwo years ago my health became so bad that another doctor was  called in; and he stated that my case  was a most severe type of anaemia,  and that* while He could help me the  trouble had progressed to such a  stage that ,ho 'could hold out little  hopes of a'cure. ��������� At this time I was  as pale, as chalk,*-my eyelids were  swollen and would hang down over  my eyes like sacks of water. My feet  and limbs would,swell,-and were always cold. I was subject to violent  headaches, severe palpitation of the  heart, and if. I stooped .'iver I would  be so dizzy that I,could scarcely regain an upright position. My appetite failccl ,me almost entirely, and I  grew ��������� so weak that I was a mere  wreck. While in -this .condition I  read in a newspaper -*f tlie cure of  a young girl- whose case was much  like mine, through the use of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and I determined  to try them." ��������� Those who knew me  did not think any medicine'could do  me any- good or that I would ever  get better, but I determined at all  events to give the pills' a fair trial.  I have used them for nearly a year  with the result'*that I feel like a new  person. The "swelling in my eyelids  and limbs has disappeared; my appetite is good'and my face is regaining  the'color which left it years ago. I  can sow and do work about the house  and this great change in my" condition is clue solely* to the use of Br.  Williams' Pink Pills.- It is not too  little to say that they have saved my  life and !��������� strongly. urge girls who  are similarly alhicted to give them a  thorough' trial. ������  -WHAT  IT LACKED.  is the deadliest and most  painful malady to which  mankind is subject.

"Well," said- the prominent citizen  proudly, after having conducted his visitor around in one of the finest automobiles ever built, "What do you think of  the place, anywayV"  "Oh, it's-quite a metropolis in some respects. Still, of course, it's'really only a  one horse town, after' all."       "   c ���������  "Wh-what?" gasped the man who had  been twice mayor and once the representative in congress of his beloved city, "a  one horse town! My dear fellow, have  you seen the new census reports'?' Look  ,at the population we have! Here, let me  ' show you our figures as compared with  some of the other large"���������  '"Yes, I know all^about that. You have  made a fine gain during the last ten  years, as far as people go. But it'isn't  people alone .that count."  "1 know that. Still. 3-011 must admit  that we have some, fine public buildings  and that our business streets are well  built   up."  "I know. Your postoflice, courthous-.-.  city hall, public library and art gallery  are all very fine.

Your Chamber of Commerce .struck".me  as being particularly fine from an architectural standpoint, and your public-  school, buildings seem to be models of  their kind." "   t  The. prominent citizen ran his fingers  ���������iip through his hair and shifted his  weight from one leg to the other. He  looked doubtfully at his visitoffor a moment, as if not quite sure that he had  understood.  Then he said, half bitterly:  "And yet you think it is a one horse  town?" .  "Why, yes, certainly," was the reply.  '"You have only a nine hole golf course  here,   you   know!'  The   Innocent   Victim.

Is that the  secret of their success. I wonder? It  must have something to do with it. 1 am  sure, says a writer. I was also told that  the game of golf had exerted an influence  ,on women which was apparent in a failing away of the talking habit and the  vivacity which occasioned 'it. A vivacious woman is helpless on the -golf links.  The calm woman, steady of eye and  brain, is the only one who can hope to  become a good player. Fussin-ess is' sib  solutely ridiculous iu the game, and feminine eyes are quick to, note it. If golf  will'do for the sex what lectures and  medical advice, even ridicule, has failed  to 'accomplish, let us welcome the game  with arms strelchc-d even wider than they  are at present: It has a rule which forbids one to talk while another, plays, and  the task of hunting the elusive little  white ball, is one that does ,not require  companionship; hew*.! speech, is,' out ot  the question.'

"Tt's'mighty hard for a clerk to be  suave aud polite all the time," said a  department manager in one of*the big  stores. "A clerk' is* like any ot' or bu-  man being, subject to headaches and  Indigestion and lits of irritability, and  occasionally he will be a little gruff  without intending it. When I was  younger, a few thoughtless,words once  came near losing me a good ,job, and  the way I escaped being tired was  rather amusing. It happened like'this:  "I had charge of the men's furnishings counter in a large'clothing, store,  and the pay being (irst rate,and chance  of promotion excellent I was naturally  anxious to bold oh to the job., One  morning, however, I was feeling all  out of sorts and was just developing  an ugly headache, when a man came'in  nnd, asked-to see some cravats.  - "1 could tell from his general appearance he was from* the north", and he  had a curt, semisupercilipus manner  that irritated me , immediately.

With  that 1 hurried over to where the* floorwalker was standing. ^Vbat's the matter?' I asked in a low tone.  " 'Great Scott, man,' be whispered,  "that's the boss!'  "The store, as I should ba'ye explained,-was the southern branch of a New  York establishment, and during .the  time Tbad been there the head of the  iii-m had never before paid it a yisit in  person/' Consequently I-didn't-know  him by sight, and my -blood ran cold  when 1 "realized bow hopelt-ssly 1 . bad  'rammed" my foot into it.

" 'What are you up to?' be asked.  *' 'Never mind,' said I., ,'You do exactly as I,say. Let him just hand me  the paper and walk off.

"Why. is it-  tbat Dr. Chase is honored and esteemed as a true physician of undoubted skill? Why is it that Dr.  Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills arc kept  in the family medicine chest as indispensable for everyday ills' which  arise from constipation and slug-gisli  action  of the liver  and kidneys ?'  It is because Dr. Chase's remedies  arc all honorable medicines. Medicines  that have been tried in the severest  cases and proven to be of most unusual value. They are immensely successful because everybody has learned'  to have confidence in them and confidence in their discoverer. Dr. Chase's  Kidney-Liver Pills have for nearly  a quarter of a century taken the lead  as the greatest seller which medicine  dealers handle, and this enormous  sale is entirely due to the downright  merit which they possess. They cure  when others fail.  It is when there is a bitter taste in  the mouth, hea.vine.ss aboitt the stomach, headaches, backaches, pains in  the shoulders and limbs and depressed, languid feelings, that people turn  to Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills.  Torpid liver, inactive kidneys and irregular bowels are the cause  of    at  least seven-tenths of human ills. Dr.,  Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills invigorate  these organs as no'other preparation  was ever' known to do; and .what is  best of all, they not merely, afford relief, but strike deeper and make thorough and lasting cures.

"Hearin<]- of a similar case that was cured  by Dr. Chase's Rernedi, s, I commenced by  taking Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills, six  boxes of which entirely cure my kidney and  liver ��������� troubles. I then began Dr. Chase's  Nerve Pood for my nervousness. It strengthened my stomach and whole system, nnd I  gained in flesh.

On the  "way home she did "nothing but lament:  "Only a tailor's daughter!   Only a tailor's daughter!"    The general made a  ' .deprecatory   gesture.    "All  right,   my  dear, all  right.    Console yourself.    I  am going to see things."  .As the carriage rolled along the single: street-of thp little province town  *.*' the news that the general had arrived  spread like, wild Are, and at the market  square a small boy yelled: "Won't tai-.  Iors get it, though!    The general has  arrived."  But.the prodigal son, he who  '.;    jeopardized the-family honor, was'.nowhere to be fouud. as he had'Vleft the  /'. <��������� house early inthe morning.1       ...    ,..r ;  "Never mind."  said the - general. \ "1'  have come to see to things with regard  to the girl.

I will manage without  you,"--and' straight-, as a, ramrod be  started on his errand to the loud clank-  ' ing of his sword, which struck the side-  , walk at every step, .until he reached  ; the*, hut in wrhich the. tailor patched  and steamed the pants of the poorer  citizens of the town. He was followed  at a respectful distance by a small regiment of barefooted children, who star-,  ed in awestruck admiration at bis belligerent mustache and gold embroidered collar and who whispered among  themselves. "He is going to the tailor's,  and he will murder Este with that saber!"  \ .  The general finally noticed the crowd  of. little  ragamuflins,  and  their  sight  ,   made him furious.    He could not very  well disperse them, for a general could  not so far forget bis dignity as to notice the children of the rabble, but on  reaching  his  destination   he gave the  (V; door such a tremendous pull that the  tailor,  who  for  the  last  five minutes  had been trying to look dignified, near-  ,     ly fell off the,table.  The general remained standing on  the threshold. He looked the tailor up  and down and then dowir-aiid up and  finally thundered in his most military  accents. "Are you the bossV" If the  tailor had dared to answer truthfully,  he would have answered, "Not ex act-'  ly." As it was, however, be answered  with humility, "1 am, but I hope you  will kiudly excuse it." .  The general looked the frail little  man over once more and thought within himself: "What an acquisition to  one's family! Something truly to be  proud of!" ... From  Here the Mrs., who, to do her justice, patch,  had much more presence of mind than  her husband and was much the cooler  of the two, offered a chair to.the general, saying. "Won't you accept a section of our modest little home?"  But the general frowned her down  and remained standing. "Thank you,"  ���������mid he stiffly, "I have no intention of  sitting down.

' The general turned to the tailor and  asked in a considerably milder tone of  voice, "Is this your daughter?"  But the girl opened the door into the  sitting room and said firmly, "Kindly  step this way, general." The next moment the' general saw himself alone  with her in the scrupulously clean sitting room. He took a chair, while'she  remained leaning against the mantel.  , But the general did not remain seated  long. He almost immediately arose  again. He walked' out of one corner  of the room into the other, furiously  twirling his mustache. He looked  right and left and up and'down and  then became aware that he did not;  know'how to begin. Finally the girl,  said, "l thought you wanted to speak  tome?"        ��������� , ^    c  The general struck a martial attitude, grabbed his sword and stuttered,  "Yes, yes. but perhaps you have'already guessed what I'have come for?"

An unaccountable feeling  akin to fear began creeping over him,  and in order to do something ana relieve the tension, he said in a voice of  thunder, "My nephew is a good for  nothing, God forsaken reprobate!"  Something like a red flame'shot into  the girl's eyes. ."Do not slander him iu  my presence." said she threateningly. ���������  The general was effectively silenced.  JHe felt as if his mission was at an end,  and yet he did not want to acknowledge himself beaten nor yet leave without having made- his peace with the  girl. He"'had the need of saying something comforting to the girl , without  exactly apologizing. He approached  her again and said in a soft, hesitating  voice": "Excuse me. my r-bild! . I am-so  sorry!"

More than two centuries have passed since the Commercial world    was  lirst attracted by___the. resources'   of  the Hudson Bay country, and its development lirsL begun.     When on the  second  of    May,'  167-J, .'King  Charles  granted  the  royal  charter   that- gave  to 'the Hudson Bay' company a'll that  vasti    stretch     of  territory  north   of  what-was   then  French   soil,   extending from  the .Atlantic to   an     ocean  they .knew no't where, ,he gave away,  far  more  than, ho   knew.     But  King  Charles was deeply 'in the debt of his  ,royal     cousin,     ' Jlupert,     the   Black  Prince,   one  time  terror   of  the  West  indies islands,   for soldiers and treasures  furnished  him  when hard .pressed 'in the wars.    In fact,  it might be  said   that  King   Charles   was   almost  'indebted     to' Prince 'Bupert  for    this  throne,  for  without the  soldiers- and  treasures 'which  he   furnished' it    -is  ���������hardly probable that a .Stuart would  ever have ,'a'gain'ruled  over England.  So   it   happened      that     when,,this  royal   cousin   asked   for .a   grant     of  'the  territory' in  North 'America     encircling*     Hudson's   Bay   and  stretching westward  for unknown distances'  King Charles was quite well  pleased  at  being  able   to  pay  his   debts , so.  easily.,   That  charter   completed    the  organization   of   "The   Governor,-and  Company     of    Mcrchants-Adventtirers  Trading   Into  'Hudson's   Bay.'-'     The  same   company   exists   to-day,      aiid,  though   an   almost   countless   number,  of fortunes Ka-ve- been  taken from the  land which an "early king of England  gave-away",   thuy" .have  not   impoverished it,  and many more fortunes remain   for   others   to   gather   in   years  to  come.   - ' '  For more than two centuries this  same company, now commonly called,  tho Hudson's Baj- Company, has opera! ed in the country granted by  royal warrant to Jfrince Rupert and  his merchant, companions.

The girl was probably nor unprepared, for she stepped through a half open  door and said, *'Here I am, general!"  Then the general did quite unconsciously what so far he had forgotten  to do. He saluted, at the same time  critically examining, tho girl who  threatened his family with a misalliance.  She was slender, but of a majestic  figure. She had an exquisite head of  soft blond hair aud magnificent blue  eyes suspiciously red around the edges,  as if they had shed a good many tears.  Thoughtlessness.  Thoughtlessness is at a discount in  this practical, workaday world. An'  .employer once asked a clerk why he  failed to take advantage of an opportunity to make a good sale. "I didn't  think, sir," was the reply. "That is no  excuse," very justly rejoined the merchant "You are paid to think!" Perhaps half the failures to achieve success in life come of thoughtlessness.
