"You had too often thought    that  perhaps   you   would   never   have   the  -opportunity     of  fulfilling     .woman's  highest vocation, as you had no one  so far to  make you a proposal.     Of  course I   do not mean you had not  -������ad     many     admirers���������you are too  '   .flweet a little thing for there'to    be  any doubt of that���������but you had no  ^decided'preference, for they were all  only admirers.

Lucie sat "stunned during this.  She  .���������thought      of      the    moment   ._ when  -her (ten - year -  old nephew,  fliad  come ' dashing    upstairs      as    if  'crazy and burst into her'little room.  "Aunt, Lucie,1 you have had an  offer  ���������of   marriage!      ,Coiue    down    stairs  ^quickly!"     And  as  she., came     down  .   'With trembling steps,   Mathilda was  -waiting for her at the foot of     the  ,   ,stairs, 'and-with tears   in  her^    eyes  - had taken her in her ��������� arms and whis-  ,   pered:'    "Ah,  Lucie,, what  good fortune!" , She saw him standing before  '  2ier, ���������   and     heard'  his   quiet,  kindly'  words,   and  then thej'  all   came'sud-  <lenly' into   the  room,   and  her  , bro-.  ��������� ther-in-law   ,hnd    patted her on the  shoulder  and  said:     "Oh,   you'little  witch! for once you have done something   ^sensible.      ,1-Iave    you kissed  ^each  other yet?   t WclF,  then,  now is  sthe     right     time'!"     Then   they  had  'kissed each other, and both blushed,  ������������������ and the grown people laughed,    and  the  children, shouted,   and   the     servants  congratulated.  But no one ever asked her: "Do  .you love him? Do you want to  isnarry him?" Sbe had not even miss-  <ed it. She had a quiet, restful feeling of security when near him, ,a shy  consciousness of his worth and goodness. Was that love? She clasped  her hands together and could not say  & word.  "And    now,"   continued the young  'baroness, after she had put the smelling-bottle   to  her  delicate   nose   and  inhaled    the    pungent aroma/'"now  you are here, and it begins  Lo dawn  ���������upon you that perhaps a little more  is needed for this life-compact    than  ���������esteem, than���������than���������"  "Stop!"  cried the girl.  "No!" exclaimed Hortense,,and she  "began to' walk up and down the half-  darkened     room.       "No,  I  will     riot  stop!     Thousands  of  girls   aro  married in this way, and thousands are  <juite contented wilh it; most of them  -do  not  observe  till long  after   their  onarriage   , how     horribly   indifferent  ���������they are to each oilier;  but you, you  have  too   ideal  a nature,   Lucie.     It  ���������will be hard for you to stand it,    to  stay in that little house to bear the  forunt  of the housekeeping,   have half  a   dozen,     children     to   bring  up,   to  .have all the cares and responsibilities  -which  life   so  unfairly  brings  to   the  wife;  and   all this for a man you do  mot love."  Lucie was silent; she held her hand  ���������\ovcr her eyes and groaned as one in  ' physical     pain;     and  ber heart cried  out full of  pain  that  this  was  truc^  She could not live beside him so un-  noticed  and so  distant,  so  cold    and  debarred from all inner    companionship.  nortense kept on walking back-  ���������ward and forward. Then she came  -over and knelt down by the girl.  "Have I pained you? Forgive me!  YAh, I know well the weakness of  -men."  Two largo tears rolled down over  '���������the girl's cheeks.  "Lucie,     do    not cry;  I  love you.  You  are  the  only  one  in  the whole  -world   that  I -do  love.     When     you  it is like sunshine  And as an honest  had experience, I  must I not?

St. Jacobs Oil is ��������� a physician's  formula, established fifty 3rears ;' Ihe  pain soothing virtues are ,so evenly  balanced as to meet all cases where  pain exists, and .where an 'outward  application is generally applied. St.  J acobs Oil is truly worth, its weight  in gold, even for the cure of nerve  pains ,(and pretty well all bodily  pains proceeding from the nerves). It  illustrates how wonderfully the essential elements are combined ; its  marvellous xsenetrating power enables  it to seek out the painful spot in the  sciatic nerve, deeply embedded, as  well as the face and brain nerves. It  cures neuralgia gently ��������� and surely,  and, after the application, if the nose  of the bottle is held to patients'  nostrils for, say,' ten minutes, they  will fall into a restful, peaceful  sleep. There is no other remedy in  the world that will do so much, and  do it so quietly and'effectively as St.  ���������Jacobs Oil. J5very family should  have a bottle handy by them in the  house.

Scientific observation justifies the estimate that a daily average of G,500,000  tons of water is received into,tbe Dead  sea from the Jordan and other sources  during the year.   During the rainy season,  says the Chicago Record-Herald,  the amount is .very much greater; dur-  ,ing the'dry season it is of course very  'much  less,   but ,this average' will   be  maintained year after year.    There is  no.outlet, and the level is kept'down by  evaporation only, which is very rapid  because of-the intense heat, the'dry atmosphere and the dry winds which are  constantly blowing down the,gorges between the mountains. This evaporation  causes a haze or mist to hang over the  lake at al] times;, and when it1 is' more  rapid' than  usual   heavy  clouds   form  and thunderstorms sometimes rage with  great violence in the pocket between  the cliffs even fn'the dry season.    A  flood of rain often falls upon the surface of the sea when the sun is shining, and the atmosphere is as dry as a  bone half a mile from the shore.'  The  mountains around  the  Dead -sea  are  rarely seen with distinctness because  of this haze. , ,  TEA  ROOT  CARVINGS.  "An. Ear  For' MnsJc."  --Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Some, indeed, may adA'ise couples to  marry before they are out of their teens  and settle down before the distractions  of the Avorld can attempt to shake their  allegiance to each other, but this settling doAvu too often   proves  to be a  mere temporary phase and is followed  by an unsettled condition that lasts for  tbe rest of their unhappy lives.

In her heart of hearts she could not  quite decide which one she loved, best.  ���������Hans, she .had to confess, had some advantages which weighed with her. Mr.  ' Barton, the man who owned the place  across the street, was particular about  '  '��������� his  furnace  man,   and  she   knew  he  Jiked Hans. Eesides, Hans could speak  Swedish, and she couldn't rdeny that it  jwas pleasant to talk with him in the  accents of the dear old home she had  left so far behind.  But whenever his plain, open countenance, with the blue eyes twinkling below' the yellow hair, was pictured in  her mind she blamed him for being a  ,"   little, too ^ordinary. ,Ske  could  see a  "dozen  such any Sunday in tho  little  ��������� Swedish church.  Now, with a man who  iwore a long blue coat with a five pointed star on the front of it and carried a  mahogany club ,it was  different.    No  one who, looked athim could fail to see  v    that he,  being a part of the government, was superior to the common run  '.of men.  -,   James had toid her that he was "the  ���������'. right arm of the "law," and  she- had  looked her'admiration.  She had known  ' 'him almost as long as She had ;Hans,  , and he was so -good to her.-  On Sun-  ' /days in the park h'e would get h'er a,  Beat close up to the band stand.   Tlien  ,.   fwh'en the concert was over he would  ' buy some peanuts, and together they  ' (would stroll, through the part of tlie  ,   park, that had signs'to  keep  off the  i, grass stuck-up all over it.    Of course  <'he,could go anywhere. ,  , ?James knew that Hans was his rival,  , for one Saturday night h'e had como to  ;   see Hulda and' had found Hans there.  "' Hulda had said:   ���������  ,   "Hans, this is Mr. Daniels."  ,    And Hans had said, "I am vaar glad  oto'see you," while James had mumbled,  ,���������*'How d'ye do?" and,tlien sat scowling t  at6the sink all the rest of tho evening.1  After that James never came on a  '' Saturday.   He asked to'bo shifted'to  '- " another platoon, so that he could do his  calling On Monday or 'Tuesday nights.  ', Hans did not-'change his night, and so  * they never'met at Hulda's home again.  ,jIndeed-. James took so little pains to  "Cultivate-Hans', acquaintance that he  never, even learned what, his rival did  for a living. And this disdainful indifference proved costly in the end.  ��������� " How Hulda would kave learned to  know her heart had not Hank O'Day,  . the iceman, set in motion a fateful  train of circumstances one cannot even  guess. Hank did not know Hulda. lie  does not know her to this day; Aud  yet it was none other than Hank who,  all unknowing, unmasked her heart's  desire.  Hank O'Day drove to his ice wagon  ft pair 'of high spirited horses. One  morning when his wagon was empty  his aesthetic instincts led  him to  lay  ��������� his route back to the ice yards along  '  the street that skirted the park.  Just as the chariot of fate was near-  Ing Hulda's home the chain at the  back of the wagon slipped and let the  end gate drag upon the ground. Hank  swore   softly,   stopped   his   team   and'  ��������� jumped to the pavement to fasten the  chain. He .ierked it quickly through  the iron rings and then���������swore .again  as the team, alarmed by the  sudden  , noise, galloped madly down the avenue and made straight for the nearest  entrance to the park.  The horrified Hank stood still long  enough to see the end gate banging out  defiance. Then he started after the  runaways as fast as his rubber boots  would let him run.  When Officer .Tames Daniels turned  from his faithful guardianship of a  bevy of simpering nursegirls in tbe  park, he saw coming toward him at  full speed a pair of wild eyed horses  and an.ice wagon swaying from side to  aide. Behind the . seat of the wagon  stood a man trying desperately to get  hold of the reins.ii Y  In an instant James recognized the  [waving yellow, hair and pale features  as those of Hans Peterson, and in the  , same moment, like an inspiration, there  came to him the .realization of his op-  . pprtuuity. He ran out into the roadway and as the flying wagon passed  caught .the chain of the end gate and  swung himself into the box.  As he gained his feet the wagon  slowed suddenly, and he lurched forward to bring up against the back of  the sturdy Swede. Seizing him firmly  by the collar, Officer Daniels gasped:  "I arrest you���������in the name���������of the  law!"       y  Hans did not quite understand, but  ���������the hand on his collar in the moment  fcf his success made him angry.  "Whad yo' say?   Led me gol"  "I say you are under arrest." James  Hvas getting his breath again. "This is  against the law, you know."  "Whad is agains' da law ?"  "Driving traffic teams in the park.  Come, you'll have to go with me to the  station."  The officer tried to pull Hans out of  the wagon, but the latter'still held the  reins and refused to go. In-his broken  English he explained, he expostulated,  he all but exploded. Another officer  was approaching.  ���������'Come on now; drop those ](ines. This  other officer will take care of your  team."  Hans dropped the reins andlappealed  to the other policeman. But the_new-  comer was indifferent. If Hans ��������� had  been arrested, why of course he would  have to go to the station.        ,       ���������  !3:he magistrate,, was busy when they  arrived., and it was upon the officer'''  recommendation that Hans'was allowed to- go untilc afternoon, 'when he  would have his hearing. To have Hans  released was the scheme', James had,  evolved. Hans would have to explain  where he wanted, to go, when he ,left  the house in the afternoon.' Thus his  employer would learn all and Hans, at  least disgraced, might'possibly lose his  place. Would she of the' flaxen hair  and the - wide, admiring eyes hesitate  any longer? James smiled as he strolled  back on post.  ��������� In   the   afternoon   Officer > Daniels,  Hans' Peterson, Hank O'Day and^Mr.  Barton,   the, man   Hans   worked  for,  came into court., The officer told the  circumstances tof the arrest and dwelt  at length upon the plain case of violation of the city ordinances.  Then Hank  O'Day explained who ho was and,how  his    horses, had 'become    frightened.'  Hans took the stand and said he "yust-  yuinp in' da  wagon' to, stop id,"  and  finally Mr. Barton informed the court  that Hans  worked  forc him  and had  'never driven an ice wagon in his life.  '���������",  . The judge  turned 'to James  again,  and when the officer  had  nothing I������  say began to talk himself.    He talked'  for quile'.awhile, and most of the time  he  addressed  his  remarks  to   Officer  Daniels.   ' - _ .  When the >butle'r had read to Hulda  fiom'that evening's paper .the account  of the runaway and"the trial, what the  judge had said to James and what he  had said about Hans, she went out into  .the kitchen and sighed and thought.  That night Hans came and talked long  and earnestly, and as he talked the  fading glimmer of that five pointed'  star went out, and naught remained  for her but the light in Hans Peterson's  blue eyes.  saves from fire all,those who wear it  and that.Cbaricles wa.s preserved-by a  topaz from the fiery vengeance of Ar-  saees, queen of Ethiopia.

A gray  parrot was introduced one day, butithe  ' Brazilian,' haughtily ���������declined to have  anything to say to the gray. Then another friend who'had just been given a  newly imported green Brazilian brought  the newcomer to call. ' The moment  the parrots caught sight of each other  they, broke into a torrent of apparently  articulate language, consisting, as' it  seemed, of questions and answers, but  what tho language was no one present  could tell, and a few days later, when  they met again, exactly the1 same thing  happened.

The life and,growth of wool and'hair  are not identical with tlie life of the  <bocly, but they will grow after? the  death of'the animal'in wliose skin they  have taken rooti" The root of tho hair  exudes the haii\pulp, which is formed  into cells containing tlie .pigment which  gives,color to the hair itself. Each row  of these cells forms a' ring. As the  rings of'cells are pushed away from  the skin by the' giving out of fresh  pulp from the roots the cells dry, forming scales which curiously resemble  miniature fish scales. A hair is simply  a long tube formed of these rings into  a sort of sheath. Theso "saw teeth,"  which the older writers mention as being one of the characteristics of- the  human hair,, are formed by rings of  these dried up cells, which are very  fine and closety set. '  Goat's*hair has a more rapid growth  and longer cells, so that it is less regular and. straight than that of the human species; consequently it shows little of the toothlike edge. The hair of  the sheep of the common sort is irregular, with a tendency to curl or wave,  but, unlike that of the goat, shews  marked toothlike edges. Wool has  barbed projections along the "hairs,"  which is one of its distinguishing peculiarities. The "wool" of the negro is  really hair, but is loss perfect than  straight hair. The same may be said  of "kinky" hair in the white races.

Every man and woman of us who has  lived long enough in the world to gain  wisdom by experience will be obliged to  admit the strange sad union of love and  quarreling. But every one of us who  has lived deeply enough to know that  experience worketh hope will admit  that when love quarrels with its beloved it is just because this noble ideal  of unity has run off the track, so to  speak; a virtue lias gone to seed; a divine quality has developed a defect.  The outlook for quarrelsome love is not  so hopeless when we can understand'  this. See how It would work if those  t\yo squabbling sisters would either of  them stop to remember'that it is only  love, foolish, exasperating, unbalanced  loye, that is responsible for the ill bred  domestic criticism that spoils the home  life. If Jane once honestly believed that  Mary's love made her so unpleasant  she would stop, aghast, amused no  doubt and very likely touched, but almost certainly silenced. And that would  be the end of the quarrel.���������Margaret  Deland in Harper's Bazar.        -^  At   the   Masked   Ball.  Male Dancer���������1 know who you are,  my fair partner.

We have known  it for a long time ourselves. The  Parker cure is .only one of many of  ���������which wo can furnish proofs.1 ,  A Specialist's Prescription. >  " The troubles in these cures have  been   made    by    what is termed    a  ',patent> medicine.'   Had  they     been  made  by a  physician in the - regular  wa3r,     and  that    physician had been  able to tell exactly how he brought  them   about,   they, would   have   been  talked   of learnedly from one end of  the country to the other.   But when  people talk about our cures there is  a tendency to say,  ' Oh that.is only  a. patent medicine advertisement.'  ���������   " They forget that Dodd's Kidney  Pills  are the life work of a  doctor.  That  they have  been  uniformly  successful in treating all diseases of the  Kidneys,   and  that  the  only  feature  .-in   which   they   differ   from   regularly  obtained medical  advice  is  that  the  prescription  oi" a specialist is    given  the public at popular uriccs.  2sro Koom for JDoubt.  " Now, you have seen the particulars in the Parker case. , Nobody can  doubt  for am instant  that that  was  a  veritable  case  of  the   ' incurable '  Bright's Disease,  neither can anyone  -doubt that the cure was effected by  Dodd's Kidney Pills and by no other  agency.    Of course, .it took time and  perseverance ;     but  the  patient   was  in the last stages of the disease before she started to  use Dodd's  Kidney Pills.      Had she  started  sooner  the work would have been easier and  the results would have been obtained  treme  case and. took  time."  "You know of other cases of  Bright's Disease that havo been cured by Dodd's Kidney Pills ? " queried  the reporter. ^  The manager walked over to a safe  and produceda bundle of letters.  Holding them tip, he said : .���������"Everyone of those letters tells of ;a. case of  Bright's Disease cured by Dodd's Kidney Pills, and every,.case, has .been  thoroughly investigated and verified.  Let me read you -a.'few of them.  Bobt. Bond Cured.  "This one, you see, i's signed,  .'Robert Bond, Mt. Brydges, Ont.'  You see what he says : ' My attending. physician said I was in the last  stages of Bright's Disease. I commenced using Dodd's Kidney Pills in  July, 3.894, .and used in all about  twenty boxes, and have used no other remedy or medicine of any kind  since, and I feel well, sleep well, and  I have a good appetite, etc'  "That is away back in 1S94.  Here's another letter from the same  Robert Bond, dated May 2nd, 1902.  You see what    he says in it.   .' The  cure is permanent as, far as I know.  lMy general health is good.'   -  C. A. ilarriSiCured. t  " Here is another case. If you'll  take the trouble ^to'look at this'letter you'li' see it is written by, tho  Postmaster at'JLovett, Ont., Mr. C.  A. Harris. Notice what" he "says :  'In 1897 I was at the point of "death  from Bright's "Disease, and4-was a  complete-wreck, could, not oven dress  myself or turn-'in my.bed, but now I  am, 1 may/say, a well man, and I  attribute , ,it all. to (Dodd's Kidney  Pills.' That's from .a postmaster, a  man who undoubtedly - knows what  ho is talking about, and' there's *no  uncertain sound "about" what he says.  <J))iia. Ingram Cuied."   '  " Here's 'one from a Toronto man,  Charles Ingram, 58 Humbert Street:  He's' a stonemason/ and well known  among the working men in the building trade. See what he says : ,'For  ten 3*ears I have been troubled with  the first stages of Bright's Disease.  3 tried several other medicines, but  could not4 get cured. A friend < . of  mine fold" me to try-> Dodd's Kidney  Pills. 1 rhavc usbd four boxes, jind  am now cured ,of the first stages of  pains.' .. ��������� >'  '  ,    ;     '     G. H. Kent Cured.  " I could go on showing you "similar letters most of the afternoon.  But I'll,,just������i give > you one more���������  that'-of G-..H/Kent, of 408 Gilmour  Street/ Ottawa. , His was a remarkable case, indeed, so remarkable that  we afterwards got him to make 'his  statement under oath before a not-  nry public.  " Mr. Kent is a printer in the employ of the American Bank Note  Company. He suffered for four  months from Bright's Disease, and-  had actually reached the stage when  the doctors declared he .could mot  live till the " next morning." While  the sorrowing wife waited by his  bedisde watching for the end, her  eye chanced to fall on an advertisement which said that Dodd's Kidney  Pills   would cure Bright's  Disease.  " As a drowning man grasps at a  straw, so this despairing woman  grasped at this last chance to save  her husband's life. A messenger was  procured, a druggist roused out of  his bed, a box of Dodd's Kidney Pills  bought, and the dying man given his  first dose. That dose brought an  improvement, gradually the pain  ceased and health returned. It took  seventeen .' boxes to cure him complete^". But that's seven years ago,  and he's been working every day  since. Surely a cure like that is  enough to make the whole world believe that Dodd's Kidney Pills will  cure Bright'o Disease.  ���������    Where t.l������e Trouble Ucs.  " The whole trouble is in making  people believe. This is a skeptical  age. It used to be ' If you see it in  the paper's it's true. Nowadays it  is 'If you see it in the papers don't  believe it.' If we could bring the  people here one at a time and let  thorn read these letters, or bring  them face to face with the men and  women who wrote them, our struggle  would be over, for the whole world  would admit that Dodd's Kidney  PjIIs will cure Bright's Disease.  X/ots More   Cnres.  " As y������u can see these are only a  few cures  of Bright's Disease picked  at random from the many. There are  dozens  of others  equally as remarv-  able   and   all   carefully   investigated  and    attested    to by reliable people.  Surely you would think that as doctors    can    give no    hope    to    those  threatened with this terrible disease,  thero should be, no hesitancy in giving Dodd's Kidney Pills a trial. And if  Dodd's Kidney Pills can cure Bright's  Disease, the    most    deadly form i of  Kidney Disease, how sure it is that  they can cure those earlier stages of  Kidney    Disease,     such as Diabetes,  Rheumatism,    Lumbago,   :   Sciatica,  Pain in the Back, etc.   Remember, as  1 said before, Dodd's Kidney Pills are  a specialist prescription for diseases  of the kidneys,     and in the    twelve  5rears they have been before the public they have    proved     their  worth  by    curing    thousands    of    sufferer*  from    all forms    of    kidney disease.  They are no cure-all ;     but they -do  cure    all forms  of    kidney    disease.  Time    and the   public have    proved  that.'.'-  THE GUGGLETY GiRL.
