London, Nov. 7.���������Very little has,  taken place in the war situation  since last despatches. A majority  of the people here have been convinced that war between Great  Britain and France is in view sooner  or later. Many expressions of regret were heard to-day.. ��������� Meetings  of military and other clubs that  a conflict apparently, is not to take  place right away. It's the general  belief that the army and navy are  in a perfect state of' preparedness.  The general ������eeiio<2 mjthe country  is such as would endorse any warlike action upon the /part of the  government. The "(officials have  strict orders not tot ,talk.

Nov. 7.���������Sev  en men were killed and three fatally injured  at  Exeter  Colliery   on  the Lehigh Valley Coal Company's  grounds :u West Ptlsjn, near  hure,  this morning.    The accident is  alleged to.be,due to the  carelessness  of the engidieer, David  Price, who,  by  disobedience of  orders, caused  thre.i cars to run into the top shaft.  The cars loaded and   weighing   11  tons, fell down the 360  foot  shaft  and  crashed  with   frightful  force  upon a carriage carrying  ten men;  seven were almost instantly..killed.  Price, in charge of the engine, was  shifting loaded   cars.     Hia  ordeis  were to approach the breaker   with  tbe engine at the head of the train.  A few days ago he was caught push  ing cars and wab threatened  with  discharge.    To-day he did the same  thing,    ai;d    instead    of    curving  around the  shaft  the  cars  dashed  into it.  mo  X.003C  OUT!

HALLOWE'EN ENTERTAINMENT.  If you want a good nights entertainment, find out < when the Ladies' Aid  Society of the Comox Presbyterian  Church are giving one and you will be  well repaid for attending.  Last Monday night they gave a Hallowe'en Social that was in every respect a  perfect success.   Music, vocal and instrumental,   readings,   shadow    pantonine  tableaux and dialogue In character, con-  . stituted just a splendid programme. "  Mr.Mundell's   reading   was as usual  with him well 'executed.    Mr.   Landells  gave a reading that pleased all immensely; it was suitable for the occassion,' and  tellingly-given.   -.Frank Smith's selection  " was alsoagood one and'verv-well given.,  Perhaps Mrs! Eric Duncan's piece took  the best. ' She  is an   elocutionist of no  ordinary merit.    Mr. Martindale  favored  the audience   with a few   sacred songs.  His voice should make a fortune for him;  we weie   all   delighted.    Mr.   Ball is a  very modest young man, so I won't say  anything about his song; he is  always a  favorite.    Mr.- William Duncan  sang a  very nice little ballad, into which  he put  much feeling ;\you could almost seethe  anticipations   on his   face of  the happy  meeting the song  portrays in   its closing  lines.   The Misses Carter and Mr/Carter  are a great help  on these occasions with  song   and   violin,   (almost   rivaling  the  musical     family), which   was   given   to  the great delight of all.    "I'd - like it  to  last forever.'    Can't   we go through life  as it suggests?  The pantonine solved a riddle how  ONE M vn can be a crew, a captain, a  boatswain, a cook and all the rest 6f.1t. >  The dialogue could not have been improved on by professionals. The "aunt"  was just Al in^get up���������meddling giving  advice, managing things to come out as  she wanted. The young "lady in love,"  no doubt, felt some embarrassment at  expressing her heart's leanings to the  sympathizing aunt before so large an  audience, bu������ she stood it bravely. The  two young fellows who sought her love���������  what will 1 say about them? The rejected one will survive. May the other be as  successful in life as he was in filling his  part on thib occassion !  Rev. Mr. Tait, the chairmap, gave a  few happy remarks at the opening speaking mostly on the manner of spending  Hallow'en.  Bounteous refreshments were then  served. "Auld Lang Syne" was sung and  "God save the Queen" closed *s pleasant  a night as I have spent in Courtenay.  J. A. H.  LAW INTELLIGENCE.   . ���������  The proceedings taken by   the  plaintiff,  Alexander Unjuhart*  as 7executor  of   hi*  brother V estate, are of some public interests.  inasmuch aa it has successfully resulted   in ���������  the  payment  of a sum of   nearly   $3,400  in the priority of the simple oontraei ored>  |tora of this Laing estate.    It  appears, that  Mr. Alex. Urqukart recovered  tiro  jndg-   <  meats against the late   Andrew D.   Laing, 7,  and after Mr. Laing'a death- took   proceedings for the  administration   of  tho  Laing.  estate..   The adidavits filed by the executrix, Mrs. Laing, early this'-year, , were , to .  the af&ct that her-husband's estate was  vof.,  the value ot about $12,500 or . thereabouts,  whereas it now appears that.the estate does/  not exceed $3,924.    After the7deoree in this,, /  action was niade the plaintiff. obtained 7the# *'  appointment of a receiver"for" the 'purpose X  of receiving the aum ot $4,000 .out  of1' the   '  moneys coining to the said 'deceased  under  the Behring Sea award.' The debts -of   the ���������  Laing estate were certified by   the   deputy...  register at $5,711.23,  which makes the   as-  sets insufficient to pay the creditors in  full,  io other words, the estate to  be   insolvent.  Yesterday this matter came before Mr. Ju- ���������  tice Martin for farther   consideration  and  for directions as to receiver's enumeration,    <  etc.-   Mr. S. Perry Mills, under whose advice the above proceedings have been taken,  appeared for Mr. Alexander Urquhart,   and  contended that his client was entitled to be  paid in fall in .priority to the  simple   contract creditors, notwithstanding sec.   16   of  the Supreme Court Act, which is similar to  tbe Imperial Act, 32 and 33 Vic. c 46.    Although the   distinction  between   specialty  and simple contract debts in  the   administration of assets is abolished, it dues not deprive a judgment creditor of his right to  be  paid in full in priority oVer all other credit-  ors.    Mr. Moresby (Drake,   Jackson & Hel-  mcken), appeared for   the   defendant,   and  several legal gentlemen present  were   also  simple contract   creditors.'   Mr.   Moresby  stated that Mr. Mills had   given   him   the  authorities that he (Mr.   Mills)   had   cited,  and that he was unable to find ca������es to  the  contrary.    Mr. Justice   Martin   made   the  order, allowing the funeral expeubea aud the  plaintiff's claim to be paid iu full after payment of costs, and thanked   Mr.   Miila   for  the argument he had urged for   his   client,  ���������Victoria Times,  KNEW  HIM.

"H'm   And   you   scarcely   remember  your mother, I suppose ?"  "No, Lucian; 1 was such a mere babe  when she died. I have often wondered  what it would be liko to have a mother.  Auntie Hagar was always very kind to  me, however; so kind, in fact, that my  stop-father, fearing, ho said, that-1 would  grow up self-willed and disobedient, sent  hor away, and procured the services of  ��������� tho ugly old woman you saw in the  garden. Poor Auntie Hagar," sighed  the girl, "sho was .sorely grievod at our  parting,' and, that she might'bo near mo,  bought the" little cottage in the lield  yonder." , #  "Oh!" ojacuiated  the  man, more as if  he felt that he was expected to say something, than as if really   interested in the  subject under discussion.    "Ah���������er���������was  i���������a���������was'the old lady a property  holder,  then?   Most" '��������� discharged   servants go   up  f and   down   on tho earth,   seeking   what  they may devour���������in another situatipn."  "That  is   tho' strangest   part   of   the  ������flair, 'Lucian; 'she   had' money. .'Whore  It. came   from,,1 never could guess,-, nor^  "' ���������  would she ever give me any,, information  ou the subject. It was a legacy���������that was  all I was to know, it seemed.  "I remember, " she continued, musingly, "how very-much astonished ��������� I was  "to receive, from my'step-father, a lecture  on this head! He took the ground that  my childish curiosity was uupardonably  rude, and angrily forbade me to ask fur-,  ther questions.. And I am sure that  since that one instance of wonderful re-  . gar'! for the feelings of; Aunt Hagar, he  l���������fts not deigned to consider the comfort  and happiness ot any, savo and always  ''   himself." '     ��������� ' <  As   the   girl's voice took ori a  tone f of  scornful   sarcasm ;  as her cheeks  flushed  and   liar eyes flashed-whilo   memory   re-'  called the many,' instances   of  unfeeling,  cruelty,  aud   neglect, that   had   brought'  tears to her childish eyes and pain to lier  lonely hear."���������the   eyes ot Lucian  Davlin  became   bright 'with   .admiration,    and  something more';   something that   might  have   caused   her honosr, eyes to   wonder  and question,   if she  had bur, interprete.l  the glance. , But hor thoughts Had taken  a backward turn.

Finally,  he assured mc that he was 'tired- of seeing  my sickly, ugly face,' and that, as I  would have to look after myself when  he was dead and gone, I must, ba eduoat-  ed.      Therefore, I was sent to  tlie dreary  Convent school at   M .    And  there   3  studied hard, looking forward to tho'time  when, having learned, all they could  loach me, I might; breathe again outside'  the four stone' walls; for, by my step-  papa's commands, I was not permitted to  roam outside the sisters' domains uutil  my studies should reach an end. Then  they brought me back, and my polite  stop-papa called mc an 'educated idiot.;'  and my good old Hagar cried over me  aud I made friends with tho birds and  tho trees. Ever since, always avoiding  my worthy ancestor-iu-law, I have beer  wondering what it would be like to be.  happy among true friends;, in a bright  spot somewhere,'' far away from this  place, where I never have been happj  , for a day at a time, even as a chlid.';  "Nover, little girl"?"

She. was fn no haste tc  answer his eager question, and he smiled  again; and once more the lurking devil  laughed out of his eyes. But he held her  tenderly to him, in silenco for a time, and  then lifted the blushing face to Ms own.  ''Look up, Aileen my own ! ls*t to be  as I wish ? Will you leave this place with  me to-morrow night?"  The girl drew back with a start of surprise.    "You���������you surely are   not   going  to-morrow,Lucian," and tho gentle voice  trembled.        j  "I rhust, little oue-  a   letter   calling   me  * ������������������    *~gjw*v   >r**i  -have  just received  back  to   the city.

She loved him  only too well, and yet this peremptory  wooing and, sudden ' departure struck  upon her naturally sensitive nerves as  something ��������� harsh and unpleasant. She  would not leave behind much Jove, would  be '-missed by few friends, and yet���������to  leave her homo once was to leave it forever, and ' it was homo, after all. She  looked ��������� at the man before her, and a  something, hor good angel, perhaps,  seemed, almost against herself, to move  her tr> -wuHoi  ������������������Wny ,musc i go like a runaway,  Lucian? I can't bear to bid you go, and  yet, if you must, why not leave me for a  little time? ,My father will never consent, I well know, but let me .tell him,-  and then go openly, after he has had  time toJjecomo familiar with tlie idea."  "After he has had time to lock you up!  Recollect, you' are ' not of age, Aileen."  After he has had time to force you into  a''marriage with your broken-backed old  lover.. After he has had time to poison  your-mind against me���������'-' X  '.'Lucian!   as   if   he could   do that, he,  indeed!".    The girl laughed scornfully.  It is   not   difficult  to .guess how  this  affair would have terminated.'   The man  was handsome   and persuasive; the  girl  trustful,,.loving,   and, save for him,   60  she thousht. almost friendless,  nut   an  unexpected event   interruptea  the eloquence flowing from tho lips pf  Lucian Davlin, and set the mind of the  girl free to think one moment, tin biassed  by tho mesmeric power of-his mind, eye  and touch. / ,  They were standing in a little grove,  near which ran the footpath leading into  the village pf Bellair. .Suddenly, as if  ho had dropped irbm one' of the wide  spreading .'trees, a very tat boy, with ' a  shining face and a general air of "know-  ingness"' appeared beforo'them.  ".I beg pardin', sir," proclaimed he,  "but as you told me if a tellergram come  for you, to fetch it here, so I did.  And staring at Madeline the while, he  produced a yellow envelope from some  interior region, and presented it to  Lucian Davlin, who_tore open the.cover,  and-took in the purport of the-messag3  at one glance. His face wore a variety of  expressions. Annoyance, satisfaction,  surprise, atl found place as he'read. . He  stood in a thoughtful attitude for a brief  time, and then, as if he had settled the  matter in his own mind, said:  "A1J right, Mike.    Go  back   now, and  tell Bowers to prepare to   leavo to-night.  I'll   come   down   and send the   required  answer.immediately.      Here,  take this.''  Tossing  him a piece of money j Lucian  ���������turned   to   Madeline, over..whose' faced  look of sorrowful wonder   was   creeping.  " 'Man   proposes,'   my dear!     Welli I  am   'disposed of   for a time.    Ic is  only  one night sooner, Maidie.    Nay,I see you  hesitate still,,and time just now is   precious.  Think till to-night, then; think^of  the lonelycdays here without  me;   think  of-me, alone in   the   big  world, wishing  and longing for   you:    I   could not  even  write you in   safety.    Think   fast, ��������� little  woman; and when   evening comes, meet  ��������� me here with your answer.   If it must be  separation for a time, dear, tell me when  I shall come back for you."  The.girl drew a breath of relief. He  would como back���������that would be better.  But, seeing his anxiety to bo gone, she  only said: "Very well,. Lucian, I will  be here."  "Then, good-by till evening."  A swift kiss, and a strong,hand-clasp,  and he strode away.  Trampling down the wayside daisies  and tender spring grasses; insensible to  the beauties of earth and sky; smiling  still that same queer, meaning smilu lie  took the path leading back to the village. Reaching the site, where tho woody  path terminated in the highway,- he  turned. Yes, she was looking afrer him ;  sho'-would 'be, be knew. He kissod his  hand, lifted'his hat with a,- courtly gesture", and*passed.out of her sight. ���������'���������  "Gad !''��������� he ejaculated, half'aloud, "she  is a1 little'beauty-';" and 'tog,lf 7inclined to  ���������'rebel, tpo. ��������� She won't go. with me tonight, I think; but a few weeks of- this  Solitude without,me, and'my Lady Bird  will capitulate. The old Turk, her stepfather, won't raise much'of a huo and  cry at her flight, 1 fancy. \Vouder what  is tho secret of his antipathy to Miss  Payne."  Ho paced on, wri-nkling his brow in  thought a moment, and then whistling  .softly as his fancies shaped themsolves to  his liking. Suddenly he stopped, turned,  and looked sharply about bim.-.   ,  "I'll do it!" he exclaimed. "Strange  if I can't.extract from a brokou-down old  woman any items of family history that  might serve my purpose.; I'll call on the  nurse���������what's her .name���������to-night. "   '���������  He glanced across the meadow, to where  stood tne cottage of-nurse Hagar,, .and, as  if satisfied with himself and his'brilliant  last idea, resumed his walk. Presently  his pace slackened agiin, and he looked  at the crumpled paper which he still retained in hi.s hand, saying:  ��������� "It's queer what" sent Cora to the city  for this flying visit. I mUst .keep my  Madeline out of her way. If they should  meet���������whew!"  Evidently   direful things might   ensue^  from a meeting between  Sladeline Payno^  and this unknown   Cora, for after a prolonged whistle, a brief moment of silence,  and then a short laugh, Davlin said:  "I should wear a wig, at   least,"    and  he/laughed again.    "I   wonder, by Jove'.!  CHAPTER  II.���������THE  OLD TREE'S  REVELATIONS.  Meanwhile, strange feelings filled the  hflart, jirirt troublesome thoughts the  head, of Madeline Payne.  .She looked about her sorrowfully. The  leafy wood seemed one of her oldest,  truest friends. Since her mother's death  she had lived, save for the faithful regard of old Hagar, an unloved life. In  the only home sho knew, sho felt herself  on object of dislike, aud met only cold  neglect or rude repulsion. So she had  made a friend of the shady wood, and  welcomed back the birds in early springtime with joyful anticipation of summer  rest under green branches, lulled and  soothed by their songs. '        ,  Wandering hero, the acquaintance between herself and Lucian Davlin had begun. Hero six long, bright weeks of  the springtime had passed, each day finding tJiem lingering longer among tho  leafy shadows, aud drawing closer about  them both the cords of a destiny sad for  one, fatal for each.  Standing with hands clasped loosely  before her, eyes  down dropped, and foot  tapping the mossy turf, Madeline presented a picture of youth and loveliness  -such as is rarely seen even in a beauty-  abounding land; A form of medium  height .which would, in, later years,  develop, much of stately grace ;<. a complexion ofJily-liko fairness; and eyes as  deep and'brown, as tender and childlike,  at; if their owner were gazing, ever and  always, as infants gaze who see only  great, grand wonders, and never a woe  or fear.    -  With a' wee, small mouth, matching  the .eyes-in expression, the face was one  to strike a casual observer as lovely���������as  childishly sweet., .perhaps.' Yet .there, was  something more than childishness in tho  broad brow and firm chin. The little  white hands were shapely and strong,  and the' dainty feet pressed down tho  daisies softly yet firmly, ' with' quiot but  steady movement. v ' '  Ma?iy a'man has been mistaken in baby  mouth and swee>y-smiling eyes. And  whoso'should mistake Madeline Payne,in  the time*to come, for "just a child and  nothing more, " would reckon unwisely,  and mayhap learn this truth too late.    '  Madeline sat .down upon a fallen tree,  where she had1 so often talked with her  lover. She looked up, ���������into ������������������ the wide  spreading branches overhead. There was  the crooked bough where sho had,n often  and often, in past days, sought refuge  when troubled by her father's harshness,  or haunted by dreams "of the mother she  had hardly known. It looked cool and  inviting, as if she could' think to better  purpose shrouded by the whispering  leaves. She stenned .unon the fallen  trunK, and. springing upwara, caugnt a  bending'limb, and was soon seated cosily  aiofr,- smiling at thought of what Lucian  would say could he see her there. Long,  she pondered, silent, motionless. Finally,  stirring' herself and shaking lightly <an'  overhanging7 friendly branch, she exclaimed:        '      ' ' r  "That will 'be hc^tJ I'll' stay hero for  the present. I'll tell step-papa that I lovo  Lucian, and will nover marry his friend,  Amos Adams, tho old fright! I'll try  and bo very calm, and as dutiful as maybe. Then, if he turns me out, very well.  If he shuts me up���������" Her eyes flashed  and she laughed ;   biit there was littlo of  mirth in the laughter���������"Why, then, I  would lead him a life, I think ! Yes, I'll  bid Lucian good-by, for a little while,  and I'll try and not miss Jiim tco much,  for���������Oh!"  She"had been very busy with her own  half-spoken thoughts, else she must havo  sooner discovered their approach, for now  they wore almost underneath her, and  they were no less personages than hor,  step-father. John Arthur, and her would-  be suitor, Amos Adams.  Madeline was about to make known  her presence, but her ear caught the  fragment of a sentence in which her  name held prominent place. Acting upon  impulse, she remained a silent, unsuspected listener.  And so bogan in her heart and 'life  that drama of pain and passion, sin and  mystery that should closo round, and  harden aixi blight the darkeuiug future  ot Madeline Payne.  A.more marked contrast than the two  men presented could scarcely be imagined.  John Arthur might have been, evident-  ly had been, a handsome man, years ago.  But it did not seem possible that, even  in his pahhiest days, Amos Adams could  have been called anything save a fright.  He was much below the medium height.  His-- head' was -sunken '-between. ,his  shoulders, and thrust forward, and each  feature of his ugly face seemed at war  with every other; while tho glance of  his greenish gray eyo was such as would  cause a right-minded person involuntarily to cross himself-and utter, with perfect propriety, tha Pharisee's prayer.  "Tho mischief fly away with you,  man," said Mr. Arthur, seating himself  upon tho fallen tree, and striking at tho  ground fiercely with liis cano; "what is  my dead wifotoyou? Madeline makes  my life a burden by th*!se samo'queries.  It's none of your business why the departed Mrs. Arthur left lier property to  me during my life,aud tied it up so as to  'mako me only nominal master���������mine to  use, but not to sell, riot one acre, not: a  tree or stone; all must go intact, to Miss  Madeline, curse her, at my death."  "Um-ni, yes.    Does tho girl know anything of this?".     : ,.  "If she did, your chances would be  slim" said tho other, scornfully. "No; I  have taken good Ciire that, she should not.  She has a vixenish temper, if she should  get waked up to imagine herself 'wronged', or any such school-girl nonsense. I  shall not Jive many years���������this heart disease is gaining on me fast, and If the  girl is your wife, in case of my death the  fortune is as good as yours, you know.  I want to have peace while I do Jive; and  for this reason, I say, I will give you my  step-daughter in marriage, and you shall  give me the note you hold against me for  that old debt, the payment of which  would   comuel   mo to live like  a   bnercar  ior tne remainder or my aays, ana tno  sum of ten thousand dollars."  ' "It's making a wiff a-rather expensive  luxury," quoth old Amos,- seating himself; "but the girl's a beauty���������no disputing that point; and���������"  "Of course sho is," broke in Arthur,  impatiently; "worth that, and riioro. to  whoever wants her, which, fortunately  for you, I don't; she is only a kill-joy to  me. If you want the girl, take her, and  be blessed���������I'll give away the bride with,  all the pleasure, in the world���������and live  happy ever after.' "  Thero was not much room for Argument between these two. Ir, was simoly  a question of exchange, and whon old  Amos had decided that ho was not paying too dearly for. so fair a piece of flesh  and blood,1 they c.imo to terms without  more ado, and being agreed that "its always best to strike while the iron'is'hot,  Mr. Arthur suggested that his friend return with him, accept a seat at his hospitable board, and hear himself announced formally' to Miss Madeline as her  future lord and master. John Arthur had  ever exacted and received'passive obedience from hi.s stop-daughter. Ho had littlo i'oar of rebellion now. How, could  she rebel? Was sho not dependent upon  his bounty for her daily bread, even?  Old Amos troublod his ugly head littlo,  if any. on this point, He recognized no  higher potentate than gold. . Ho liad  ���������bought him a wife; ho had but to pay  the price and take possession of the  p rope'rty.  Madeline Pnyne sat long on her leafy  porch thinking fast and hard! tho expressions of her face changing rapidly as she  revolved, in her mind, different phases of  the situation. Surprise gave place to  contempt, as she eyed tho departing plotters from her green hiding-place. Con-  tcmxJt merged into amusement, as she  thought of the wonderful contrast between the two wooors who had proffered  their , respective suits, in- a manner so  viery different, beneath . that selfsame  tree. A ��������� look of fixed rosolvo sottlod  down^upon lier countenance at last, anfl  uncurling' herself, she r,droppod lightly  upon tho ground. ��������� '  Madeline had made up her mind. That  it would bo useless to say aught of Lucian, she now knew too well. That sho  could never defy her father's commands,  and still dwoll beneath hor father's roof,  sho also knew. She hesitated no longer.  Fate, stronger than sho, had decided for  her, she reasoned. Her mind once made  up, she gave in it no placo to Joars or  misgivings. TIsj strength of'will and the  spirit of rebellion," that were dormant in  her nature, began to stir into ilfo, roused  by the injustice that would rob her of  her own. Sho not only had a way, of  escape, but that way lier own inclinations  lured hor. With never a fear, never a  thought of the days to comej she turned  from her mockery of a home, from hor  parent, unnatural, unloving, and unloved, to an unknown, untried worlJ,which  was all embodied in one word���������Lucian.  The past held for hor many- dark  shadows; th,q future held all that she  craved of joy "and love���������Lucian. ��������� . " ,  - In he.r, outraged 'heart there was. no  room fur grief. She had heard hor dead  mother scorned, and by him who; more  than, all  >:otners, should-havc   cherished  i '  "her memory, and ^lowored h^r namo. Slie  had heard herself bartored away, as a  parcel of goods, and her very life weighed  in the balance as a most objectionable  thing Hor happiness was' scoffed at; ,bor  wishes ignored as if without existence,  and, contrary to all nature; even her  liborty was menaced.  Slowly Flip txirned away, and very  thoughtful was hor faco .ts she went,  but fixed in its purpose <as fate itself;  and fearless still as if life had no dark  places, no storm clouds, no despair.  Oh,   thoy ��������� were lovely,  innocent   eyes;  nnd   oh !   it was a sweer.   sweet   mou'Ii!  But   the   eyes never   wavered,    and   the  mouth   had   no trace of weaknoss  in   its  dainty curves.    You have reckoned with  out   your   host, John  Arthur.

Saved from being: a Nervous Wreck  BY  MILBURN'S HEART AND  NERVE PILLS.  For the benefit of Canadian mothers,  who have daughters who are weak, pale,  run down or nervous, Mrs. Belanger, 128  Rideau Street, Ottawa, Ontario, made the  following statement, so that no one need  suffer through ignorance of the right  remedy to use: "My daughter suffered  very much from heart troubles at times.  Often she was bo bad that she could not  speak, but had to sit and gasp for breath.  She was so extremely nervous that her  limbs would fairly shake and tremble.  Frequently she would have to leave school;  and finally she grew so weak that we were  much alarmed about her health. I gave  her many remedies, but they did not seem  to do her any good.  Then I heard of Milburn's Heart and  Nerve Pills, and got a box of them, and  they have indeed worked wonders with  her. I can recommend them very highly  as theT/best remedy I ever heard of- for  complaints similar to those from which  my daughter suffered."  Milburn's Heart and Nerve Pills never  fail to do good. They cure palpitation,  faintness, dizziness, smothering sensation,  weakness,nervousness, sleeplessness, anaemia, female troubles and general debility.

Virgil occasionally indulged in humor at the expense of his friend Maecenas.

"And what was it that bored  you, amicus" meus?" "The augurs, of  course," was Virgil's quick response.
