The match Monday   night  was.  well attended and a good deal of excitement  wasmanifested   in   the  Thompson-Combs affair.     Several  juniors tried their skill at preliminaries, two Stant boys   showing   remarkable skill.     J. Murdoch   and  R. Micha-deon also  tussled,  Murdoch winning two  falls.      In   the  main event,'Thompson   won   first  fall in 10 minutes by a Hi������lf Nflson  and Crotch.     After the breathing  .spell both went at it savagely.   Paddy frequently forcing ���������Thompson off  the mat and several times coming  dangerously near to flooring his antagonist.      Thompson's   superior  skill however finally prevailed and  he eecured the fall in   55  miiiutes,  same hold   as   first.     The   game  throughout was fast and furious and  is conceded to be the most interest*  ing bit of wrestling ever seen in the  town.   Paddy surprised friends of  both sides by hie display of strength  and dogged   persistence,  and   will  when better nkilled, be a dangerous  antagonist.   Andrew is wonderfully quick and saves himself well for  the supreme effort which he generally makes in an auspicious moment  At the conclusion of the match Geo  Gray announced through R.

NAPIER & PARTRIDGE MY LADY PEGGY  GOES TO TOWN  By  FRANCES AYMAR MATHEWS  Copyright 1901, by the Bowen-Merrill  Company.  ���������Twas, In eooth, ror tins mner a du-  terly sad hour which was spent in  covering the distance between the heath  and the castle. Revived a bit, no doubt  by the fumes of the liquor, her ladyship's lids quivered, contracted and  finally opened, but it was with a distraught and unrecognizing t*tare that  she surveyed her companion.  '"Sdeath!" cries she aloud, her feeble  right hand seeking her sword side. "I  tell you, Chock, your mistress is now  full fledged a man! Hist, girl, an you  love me, keep it close. Sir Percy's wed  to Lady Diana! Aye!" Peggy laughs  with such a heartbreak in her voice  and such tears in her winkers as causes  Percy a pang of crudest misery.  "Tut, tut, Chock! What's his marriage to me? Fetch the pack, Mr.  Brummel; aye, I'm at your service, loo.  crimp or whist! I, Sir Robin McTart,  Ml lay you a thousand to nothing!  Zounds, sir, fetch coffee to stain my  face with, and where, oh, where's my  precious bundle with my woman's duds  in't, my patch bos that I burned and  the long tail of my hair I cut off when  you, Chock, bought me the counterfeit  of Sir Robin's own wig at the perru-  quier's in Lark lane? Aye! So���������no,  no, no!" And now a shiver and a  lower tone, as Lady Peggy, with her  wide, wild eyes, shrank back in the far  corner of the jolting coach.  "My lady mother���������I command you.,  Chock, tell her not of my escapades, and  when Percy comes home with his bride  swear him, as will I. I was off pleasuring in Kent at my godmother's. Mother! Mother!" cries she, piteously now,  as Percy's arms enfold her and a thousand fond words jostle each other on  his lips.,  Then she sinks into the stupor again  and remains so until the great coach  .rolls through the park and up to. the  entrance of her home; unTIHPercyTwItTr  few words, lays her in the stout arms  of the faithful Cbockey and sees her  mother bending above her, her father  distract in his nightrail and cap, cook  wailing, being from Kerry and prompt  at any sort of hubbub, Bickers' toothless mouth agape with groans; sees his  lady carried up, limp, little hands  down hanging, to her chamber out of  his sight.  Sir Percy leaves Peggy's bundle,  which he had gathered up as best he  could and slung about his shoulders,  on the table in the hall. The little  scrap of paper he carries away with  him and reads when he reaches home  that night. 'Tls her ladyship's note to  bim, written on the fly leaf of the  prayer book of the young curate of  Brook-Armslelgh village. As ho scans  it, presses it to his lips, sits until  dawn, remembering many things since  -he-parted from his lady long ago in  the parlor at Kennaston, the most of  the mystery is unraveled by light of  tho scrawl, nnd tho delirium of bis  Joy at knowing himself to have boon  in her heart almost equals the mad  anxiety that consumes him now as' to  her life and well being,  look like an angel! What a blessing  of Providence the French is with their  nostrums!"  Peggy **egards herself.  "Now, my lady," cries Chockey,  "would you but borrow your lady  mother's worked head, a cup of powder and her ladyship's pink feathers  atop of it, what a sight would you be  for Sir Percy to behold!"  Peggy shakes her head. The three  feet of wire, wool, pomade, frizz and  plumage the handmaiden suggests even  causes her to laugh aloud as she figures  It above her own face.  "Chock," says she, "I'll do as I am.  Sir Percy has seen my cropped head.  Faith, he 'twas, you tell me, that fetched the tail of my locks to Kennaston  in his saddle pocket or tied upon him  somewhere?"  "Aye, my lady, Mr. Grigson says  never, since Adam and Eve began  courtin' under the fig tree, has any  young nobleman been seen in such a  frenzy as Sir Percy about your ladyship. Lawk, Lady Peggy! When a  young gentleman goes off his feed,  ceases swearin' and cursin' his man  and stops down in the country nigh  three months in tlie season, a-readin'  loud to bis deaf aunt, there ain't no  sort of doubt as to the quality of his  passion!"  Her ladyship smiles as she spreads  her train and glances at it over her  shoulder.  "Chock," says she, "look you now,  while I cross the room. Does the pa-  duasoy stand out well over my hoop?"  "Like the dishclout, my lady, when I  spreads it to dry over one of the biggest hencoops. 'Tis monstrous fine;  finer, I should swear, than anything  Lady Diana could have!" Chockey  sighs, lost in admiration. "Though belike Lord Kennaston wouldn't think  BO."  "And, Chock, look again." Her ladyship crosses back to the divan. "'Tis  thus the town ladies give the true  quality sweep to their trains. Give me  the trinket Sir Percy sent me last  night." Peggy takes a fan of most  beautiful feathers from a mother-of-  pearl box and waves it back and forth.  ���������"Tis so, Chock, the London fine ladies  flutter the fan, as 'tis called, and every  wriggle hath a different meaning!"  "Oh!" Chockey is well nigh speechless as she watches her mistress sidling,  "bridlingragitating-the-fan-back-rfopthr  CHAPTER XIX.

"Oh, Percy!"says she, with real roses  blooming in her cheeks.  "I know a deal," whispers he, "but  one thing I must ask. You'll tell me at  once, will you?"  "What is't?" says she, smiling, as  she leaves her two hands In the hold  of one of his.  "Why did you adventure so much?  For what, for whom? Whose sake?  Wherefore?" Tbe young man's voice is  fev-erish with anxiety.  She hangs her head; raises it proudly; wishes she had him at a distance,  and, so, leave to swing her train and  use her fan indifferent  "My beloved!" cries he. "Answer me!  'Tis your own Percy, him that worships the ground you tread upon, who  has never had a thought apart from  you, to whom every other lady on  earth's but a puppet, that asks. Eh,  Peg, for whom, who?" coaxes be, with  eyes, lips, hands, heartbeats.  "For your sake, sir, and none other,"  she answers. " 'Twas because I knew  I'd done wrong and sent you from me  careless. I would not give in; but you  up in town, Ken writing me as he did,  I could abide it no longer, and I went."  "Now, heaven bless you,1" says he,  taking her in his arms and at the same  instant pulling from his waistcoat  pocket the scrap of a note she'd written him in the eye of the scaffold.  "Peg, Peg! I'm not worthy to mate  with you, and when I learned of all  your hairbreadth 'scapes, your twice  saving of my life���������when I read this,  'slife! My lady, what's a man like me  to such as you?"  "I'll tell you," says she, laying' her  head on his shoulder. "He's tbe man  she ioves."  "Will you marry me In a fortnight,  Peggy?" asks he, rapturous.  "Nay!" answers she, laughing.   "I've  another suitor to consider, sir."  "And who is he?"  "Sir Robin McTart    He was over  yesterday to ask my hand from daddy."  "Tbe devil!"  "Nay, sir, not enough courage for  that!"  "Peggy, sweet lips, will you be mine  .the Tuesday after Transfiguration?"  "Lud,  no, Sir Percy!    That will I  not!"  __J!When will you, then,Jove?"  "Next Christmas."

"Well," she answers, looking up to  where her father and mother stand in  the doorway, "an daddy and my lady  mother consent, you shall have your  , way, sir."  The young man glances up, following Peggy's eyes, springs to his feet,  raises her from the old divan and leads  ber before them.  "My lord and your ladyship," says  he, "will you consent, as Peggy has, to  our being made man and wife on October tho 5th, and will you give my  lady and ray unworthy self your blessing?"  They kneel down, and tho carl puts  out his hands above their heads, tho  words stumble, for there aro drops in  his old eyes as he looks and beholds  about their faces that most splendid of  all aureoles, the light of lovo nnd faith,  honor with youth, and hope and wholesome minds to guide.  THE END.  NORWAY AND SWEDEN.  Tho Gentle RnKltiohman.  Mortimer Mcnpes, tho English artist,  In a book on India tolls of the brutal  conduct of some British soldiers toward tho natives in the Victorian era.  Ho writes: "Ono day a subaltern got  Into a first class railway carrlago and  found sitting thoro a 'colored gontlo-  man.' In a fit of rngo ho seized tho  poor man by tho shoulders and shouting  out to bim, 'Out you go, you black  beast!' pitched him and his portman-  toaus on tho platform. This, to his  groat astonishment, caused consldor*  ablo disturbance, and when bo inquired  what tho pooplo meant hy putting  themselves out ovor a black man, an  Englishman who was passing by answered, 'Well, perhaps you don't know  It, but you havo thrown ono of hor  majesty's judgos out of tho train.'"  rrfeta.   ,   ���������  Tlio Date fl-ililer,  T! o glont of the whole spider family  Is t-o "hound" or "dog" spider of Mad-  ogaacar, Its body weighs ulmost a  pound, and each of Its eight legs la  longer and larger In illaine.tur tbuu tho  common cedar pencil.

There is danger that the long-drawn-  out quarrel between Norway and Sweden over a separate consular system for  Norway, may disrupt the bond of union  between the two countries. Both have  for the last five years been preparing  for the conflict, making extraordinary  army appropriations, and now that  King Oscar, of Sweden, who has been  friendly to Norway, has appointed his  eldest son, Crown Prince Gustav, as regent, war seems more probable, as the  latter has always been in favor of forcing Norway to retain the present system, by remaining ih the union.  The Crown Prince Gustav is understood to have a secret understanding  with Emperor William, which would  bring Germany into the threatened  conflict.  King Oscar's Rule.  A short time ago Crown Prince Gustav said in a public Bpeech in Stockholm, that he would like* nothing better  than to lead a Swedish army into Norway and force the Norwegians to remain in the union. His appointment  as regent, in the face of these recently  expressed sentiments, may, therefore,  be taken as ominous.  The retirement of the venerable  King Oscar II. of Sweden and Norway,  at this partioular time, removes from  the arena of international policies the  man who has been called the ablest  ruler of the age, and who has certainly been the most democratic king  that ever lived. As referee in national  complications, he had had an importance in world politics out of all proportion to the rank of his kingdom, and  at hoine he has ruled with perhaps  greater tact and diplomacy than' any  other sovereign. He has, however, been  unable to firmly weld together his two  kingdoms, and now, at the moment  when they are more ready than ever before to fly at each other's throat, he  has given up his power to his eldest  son.  Basis of the Union.  Norway was for 400 years, until 1814,  joined by an act of union to Denmark,  and had for 100 years before that been  a sovereign kingdom. Therefore, when  It was, in. 1814, ceded to Sweden by the  Danish King, Frederick VI., the Norwegians repudiated the terms of tho  cesion, and a short war took place,  tending in fhe defeat of the Norwegians.  A bond of union was drawn up, however, under which Norway was to be a  "tree, independent and indivisible king-  Horn, united wlTh~~SwTdeTr"'under~one"  king."  *)   Over and over again attempts have  j been made to amend this act of union,  ijbut it has remained intact. Norway has  ] always successfully resented   Swedish  | attempts to meddle in Norwegian affairs, and, except that thero is one king  "and a combined consular service, the  I two kingdoms havo nothing In common.  They have separate and distinct constitutions ad cabinets, armies, navies and  flags, and a subjeot of either country is  a foreigner in the other.   Norwegians  f feel that in a number of ways they are  at a disadvantage in the union.  Cause ef Trouble,  They have b*en for 70 years quarreling over tho question of separate diplomatic services, and the issue is today more grave than over before,   Nothing was settled in tho act of union  of 1814 as to diplomatic intercourse, aiid  the Swedish diplomatic service has always represented Norway.   For somo  years past there has boen friction between Norway and Sweden because few  Norwegians were appointed tu foreign  posts, and because tho Swedish Minister of Foreign Affairs oould not be held  responsible by Norway.   Threo years  ago committees wore appointed by each  country to consider tho diplomatic service question, but they recently reported that they wero unable to agroo.   Tho  rosult has boon the growth of a sentiment In Norway favorable to separation  from Swedon. .  A fow days ago Premier Hagorup, of  Norway, addresBing the Storthing at  Chrletlanla, said ho rogretted that the  negotiations betweon Swodcn and Norway on this question had failed, The  situation, he addi-d, was very serious.  The present conditions could not bo  oontlnuod without endangering the relations between the two countries, Norway must thoroforo make provision for  taking up tho national and International  position to which she is entitled as a  sovereign state. If this could not be  aohloved within the terms of the existing treaty of union now forms for the  co-operation of tho nations must be  oonsldurcd.  The Two Countries.

In consequence of  Sir Nowell Salmon's retirement, Admiral Seymour succeeds to the Devon-  port command, and hoisted his flag  on the Impregnable as Admiral of the  fleet. The flag was saluted by Vice-  Admiral Hendemon from the Cambridge, and several other ships Big*  naled congratulatory messages.  DICKENS A3 POLITICIAN.  1  Lord Halsbury Thinks He Was a Liberal Bordering on Radical.  Tht great Influence of the work of  Charles Dickens as a soolal reformer  was emphasized in the discussion which  followed the "Boz" Club dinner, held  at the Savoy Hotel recently to celebrate  the anniversary of the birth of the famous novelist.  Lord Halsbury said that while he  was full of admiration for Charles  Dickens and his writings, he rather  protested against the, mixture ot poll-  tics, morals and general observations  presented by the chairman. He absolutely disagreed with the statement  that Dickens was not a party politician.  He was one of those persons who believed that party politics were a very  useful part of our constitution���������(Hear,  hear)���������and going through the novelist's  works he thought almost every portion  of them might be pointed to show that  ho was (*, Liberal politician, verging on  the Radical.  It did not detract from his (the  speaker's) admiration of Dickens that  he was a party politician. (Hear,  hear.) He had no doubt that Dickens  had strong views on other things besides party politics. He had strong  feelings on the administration of the  poor law, and no one could read what  he wrote in "Oliver Twist" without also  feeling great indignation against the  administration.  In some respects, no doubt, hia writings effected some improvement in the  poor law, but we must not forget that  the poor law was then and now a very  different question. TVe still had to  consider what was to be done in respect  to those people who were perfectly  willing and able to work, but who could  not get work to do.  Charles Dickens in his great poems���������  they were poems though they were In  prose, for they were works of imagination���������taught what all great poets tried  to teach���������truth and right. He recognized that we no longer needed the  6pear ^and tournaments to establish  "great" .^d'^Ble^d^^BT-^*^-hearr)'-  Dickens' characters moved us because  they were natural, and we knew what  they were. It was doubtful whether his  fame would be Increased by putting  him forward as a social or political re-  former.���������London Standard.  ���������������;  iV  He Wa* Firm,  The comptroller of the treasury Is  an autocrat whose decision overrides  even that of the chief magistrate of  tho nation.

He takes a keen Interest in  all forms of sport, and assists in every movement for the welfare of the  community. He is secretary of the  Blkhorn grain growers association.  For several years he has been president of the local Conservative association and also of the local football  club, an' organization, famous for its  victories. He is a notary public, a  magistrate and a commissioner, and,  altogether, one of the busy men of the  west, who believes in Longfellow's  motto "Something attempted, something done," every day for the betterment of himself and the community. I  Mr. Thompson recently joined the  ranks of tne benea������cts, marrying last  January, the daughter of the late John  McLeod, the pioneer merchant at Elk-  horn. He has a beautiful home in  the village, and takes a great interest  in trees and gardening. Most of tbe  trees and shrubs that can be grown  In Manitoba may be found on his  grounds, which in summer time are  a paradise of floral beauty.

Reed visited some friends  at their summer residence and missed  the train, the last Boston bound train  stopping at Westerly that night. As  Mr. Reed had an imporant engagement in Boston early the next day he  seemed worried until he learned that  there was a Boston express which  passed Westerly at 9 o'clock. Then  he smiled. Going to the telegraph office he directed a telegram to the superintendent of the road in Boston, and  sent the following message: "Will you  stop the 9 o'clock express at Westerly  tonight for a large party for Boston?"  The answer came: "Yes. Will stop  train" Mr. Reed read the message  a"hd smiled again. When thq .train  pulled in Mr. Reed quietly started to  board it, when the conductor said:  "Where is that large party we were  to stop for?" "I am the large party,"  repled Mr. Reed, and he boarded the  train.  W. J. THOMPSON.  Editor and Proprietor of the Elkhorn  Advocate.  Mr. W. J. Thompson ?s one of the  oldest and best known newspaper  men of the Canadian West, having  been in the country since 1892. He is  a practical printer, like the majority  of the editors of the weekly press of  the west, and learned the art in h.is.  native town of Tilsonburg.  On coming west he first located in  Vlrden, but after engaging in newspaper worjk there for less than a year,  "he" wenO^EIEHSrnrwhere^the-'A-dvo-,  cate was established. For a year Mr,  Thompson was foreman in the office,  and for five years was manager.   Dur-  "I see that a prominent statician  says that considerably more than one-  half of the world's population is feminine." "I don't believe it. If that  were so, how would we account for  the fact that one-half of the world  doesn't know how the other half  lives?"  One of the infielderS; had, made an  error.

Few men have done morei  to develop the district in which he resides than Mr. Thompson. The workj  he has done in the Elkhorn vicinity:  is being duplicated in hundreds  of other centres by editors and other  pulic spirited men, who found their  reward in the rapid promotion of  what a few years- since would be regarded as idle dreams. These men  are nation builders in the highest  sense, and it is to   the   credit of tlie  as to  what had happened and what all the  fuss was about.

The art of pi-fating being one  of the trades taught the inmates. In  1898 the school closed down their industries, and Mr. Thompson purchased the Advocate buying a new plant  for the purpose of continuing the pub-1  llcation of the paper,  The Advocate is Conservative in  politics, and in its comment on public  matters speaks with no uncertain  sound. It is recognized everywhere  as one of the most aggressive members of the Western Canada conservative press.

A. A LUCKY GIRL  SAVED    FROM    DEADLY DECLINE  BY DR. WILLIAMS' PINK PILLS.  "When I think of my former condition of health," says Miss Winnlfred  Perry, of West River, Sheet Harbor,  N.S., "1 consider myself a lucky  girl that I am well and strong today,  and I owe" my present good health entirely to Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. I  suffered almost all that one can endure from weakness and nervousness.  I was as pale as a sheet, and wasted  away. The least noise would startle  me, and i was troubled with fainting  spells, wheu 1 would suddenly lose  consciousness and drop to the floor.  At other times my heart would palpitate violently and cause a smothering sensation. Night and day my  nerves were in a terrible condition,  and I seemed to be continually growing worse. No medicine that I took  helped me in the least until I began  taking Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and  after I had taken half a dozen boxes,  I felt so muchobetter that 1 stopped  taking them and went on a visit to  Boston. I had made a mistake, however, in stepping tho pills too soon,  {uul I began to go back to my former  condition. 1 then called on a well known  Boston > doctor; and after explaining  my/case, told him how Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills had helped me before. He  told me to continue their use, saying  I could take nothing better, and 1 got  another supply and soon began to regain health. I took about eighteen  ticxes in all, and they fully and completely restored my health, and I have  iiad no sickness since."  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills can do just  as much for every weak, nervous,  pale-faced young woman, who is slipping from anaemia into deadly decline. They make new, rich health-  ���������giving blood, and that is what every  growing girl and woman ��������� must have  to retain their health, it is because  these pills actually make new blood  ���������that they strike at the root of all  common ailmens of life, such as  headaches and sideaches and backaches, indigestion, palpitation of the  Heart, kidney troubles, sciatica,  rheumatism, ... neuralgia, St. Vitus  Dance and paralysis. But only the  genuine pills can do this, and the  sick one should see that the full  name, "Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for  FaJe People" is, printed on the wrapper around every box.

THS PREFIX "HONORABLE."  command that retired Executive Councillors of Canada may be styled by some  other title, and, therefore, I maintain  that it Involves a less flagrant disrespect of authority to style a retired  Executive Councillor "Your Lordship"  than to style him "Honorable," because the latter Is the1 one title Hia  Majesty has categorically declared he  Is not to enjoy.  The ostentatious disregard of the  authorized regulations which you excuse or defend, scarcely seems to me  justified by the argument that this Is a  free country, and a man can call himself what he pleases in it.  I am equally unable to share your  view, that because members of the  King's Privy Council for Canada retain the tltlo "Honorable" for life,  therefore retired Executive Councillors  of provinces should be accorded the  same privilege. A cursory examination  ol the authorized table ot titles would  show that it ls based on the principle  of gradation���������that the more honorable  position should enjoy the more honorable distinction. Few persons will be  found to dispute that the advisers of  His Excellency the Governor-General  in respect of the Government of Canada, are charged with higher duties and  responsibilities than the advisers, of  the Governor-General's deputy in respect of the local affairs of one province of the Dominion. So impressed  was Sir John Maodonald by the dignity of the office of Privy Councillor,  that he desired that the title "Right  Honorable" should appertain thereto,  and he thus gives his reasons in 1867:���������  "Canada will soon have as large a population as Ireland, and the duties and  responsibilities of .Privy Councillors of  Canada are much greater than those  attaching to similar offices in Ireland."  Lord Monck, the first Governor-General of Canada, agreed with his chief  adviser in this matter, for he writes to  Sir John:  "My own wish would be to treat  the Privy Councillors of Canada, both  as to title and tenure of office, exactly as the Privy Councillors of England  and Ireland are dealt with. I have  stated this view very strongly in conversation as. well as in a formal despatch to the Duke of Buckingham, but  up to this time I have had no intimation of his views on the subject."  In conclusion, and with regard to the  practice of the indiscriminate application of the title of "Honorable," I would  recall the wise and true remark made  by Mr. Edward Blake on the floor of  the Ontario Legislature when the attributes of the Lieutenant-Governor  were up for .discussion many, years  agtj, "That it adds to no man's dignity  to assume unjust and unfounded pre~  -tensions^1��������� = ���������-���������������������������-������������������  The Flrat Alitor and the Poet.  John Jacob Astor and his son rigidly  attended to business in the same office,  a little one story building in Prince  street, just east of Broadway. Their  constant companion there was Fit*-  Greene Hailed*���������Marco Bozzaris Hal-  leek. Halleck became a clerk for Astor  in 1832 and worked seventeen years.  The employment, he himself said, was  not "profitable, but permanent" Astor  warned him when he began not to talk  to any one of his wealth. The two men  became great friends. Halleck spent  months with his patron at his country  seat and became one of the trustees of  the Astor library. The poet frequently  rallied the old man on his wealth.  "Why, Mr. Astor," he would say, "if I  had $200 a year and was sure of it I  would he content." The great landowner took him at his word, and in his  will, much to the amusement of bohe-  mlan New York, left Halleck an annuity of $200.���������Burton J. Hendrick In  McClure's.

Even such a cool headed, seasoned orator as John Bright once said, toward  the end of his career, too, "I suppose I  ought to be ashamed of myself, but ths  fact is that I never rise in the house  without a trembling at the knees and  a secret wish that somebody else would  catch the speaker's eye and enable me  to sit down again." And Disraeli, who  boasted that he had no nerves, declared: "The blare of trumpets, a thousand lookers on, have induced men to  lead a forlorn hope. Ambition and  one's constituents have induced men  to do a far more desperate thing-  speak In the house of commons."���������London Mail.  The skin becomes reddened and inflamed and pimples are formed that  burst and discharge a watery, sticky  fluid, which dries and becomes a sort  of crust or scale.       ,  In other cases thero may be ulcers  or sores. Suffering is always intense  on account of the frightful stinging,  burning and itching.  The surface of the body should be  kept clean by frequent bathing with  tepid water and castile soap, and Dr.  Chase's Ointment applied night and  morning.  The control which Dr. Chase's Ointment exerts over eczema and similar  skin diseases is a wonder to all who  have tested it. This most extraordinary healing power has made' Dr.  Chase's Ointment the standard Ointment the world over.  There is no guess work about Dr.  Chase's Ointment. It is applied directly to the diseased part, and you  can see exactly what it does.  By its cleansing, soothing, healing  action It allays inflammation and irritation, heals the raw, sore flesh,   and  leaves the skin soft, smooth and natural.  Mr. Wm. Castle, Eagle Hill, Alto.,  writes:���������"About Nov. 1, 1903, I broke  out with small red blotches on my  an-qs and they afterwards spread all  over my body. It was so itchy that  I could not sleep at nights for scratching. I suffered untold misery and  was almost driven to desperation. I  tried everything1 at hand an J my  friends recommenced numerous remedies all to no avail. ,  "When I began the use of Dr.  Chase's Ointment 1 had little hope of  relief, but the result has been wonderful. From the first this preparation  gave relief from the dreadful itching  and it has now brought about a cure."  Wherever there is itching of tho  skin or a sore that will not heal Dr.  Chase's Ointment can be used with  positive assurance of relief and cure.  60 cents a box, at all dealers, or Ed-  manson, Bates & Co., Toronto.

Do Provincial ex-Ministero Retain the  a        Title for   Life���������Mr.  Joseph  Pope Says "No."  Mr. Joseph Pope, of Ottawa, In reply  fto The Mall and Empire gives some  authorities in the course of-an interesting letter respecting a current subject of interest as follows:  I have read with no little surprise  roiir criticism of tho timely protest by  The Halifax Chronicle against tho practice of continuing to style members of  the provincial Executive Councils  '"Honorable" after they have retired  ilrorn office.  You say that this province "ls not  Groing to penalize anybody for continuing to use tho tltlo 'Honorable' when  tcMref-slng an ex-minister." That Is  b doubt truo.

I refer to the constant use in the press and elsewhere  of the word "Parliament," meaning  thereby the Provincial Legislature.  This is altogether a misnomer, as the  most casual reference to the Act of  Union will show. That Act declares  that there shall be "one Parliament  for Canada," and a Legislature for Ontario, and throughout it carefully differentiates between the two expressions.  This incorrect use of the word "Parliament", has frequently been called  attention to, notably by Sir John Maodonald, as Minister of Justice, In his  report on the Statutes of Ontario, dated 1st July, 1868, and by Hon. Edward  Blake In his review of the legislation  of Manitoba and Quebec for the year  1876. In the latter report Mr. Blake  explicitly states that the expression  "Parliament" is "objectionable," aa  applied to the Local Legislature.

Going to bed in India is a very different process from going to bed at  home. To begin with, it is a far less  formal process. There is in the hot  season no shutting of the door, no  cutting yourself off from the outer  world, no going upstairs, and, finally,  no getting into bed. You merely lie  down on your bed, which, with its  bedding, is so simple as to be worth  describing. The bed is a wooden  frame with a webbing laced across It,  -and-each~*bed-has~a-thin-cotton-mat--  tress. Over this one sheet Is spread,  and two pillows go to each bed,  bolsters not being used. That's all.  Some people do not even have, the  mattress* preferring the coolness of a  piece of fine matting.  Peculiarities ot Ferretn.  Ferrets are usually, rather shy and  sometimes are very cross and bad tempered. If tbey take a fancy to people  they are llko squirrels and can be caressed and made much of and enjoy it  very greatly. Ferrets were originally  brought from England. They are of  great value to clear premises of rats.  When not hunting tho ferrets should be  kept in a dry box or pen, with tho top  off, the depth to bo about threo feet,  tho bottom filled in with sawdust or  earth. Tho rat is tho natural prey and  tho favorite food of the ferret. When  there are no more rats raw meat Is the  very best thing to feed, although bread  and milk or any other food, with tho  exception of salt meat, can be given  them, together, with milk and water,  tbo same as founts. At first tho ferrot  should bo handled by tho tail or back  of the neck, the lattor bolng the preferred Way. A strango ferrot should  never bo handled from tbo front, as he  may blto.

It was a wild, rocky way, ending in  this long climb up the face of the  mountain, but his glance flashed over  it In a swift, comprehensive scrutiny.  All was desolation, solitude, save at  the base of the very slope up which  he was struggling, where a compact  group of men were following his trail  aa surely and unrelentingly as bloodhounds. Even as his glance flashed  down at them there came the returning flash of sunlight on a leveled rifle  barrel into his eyes, and he ducked and  slipped around the bend. As he did so  a bullet flattened against the rock  behind where his head had been.  "Steve Finter," he thought grimly.  "No other man can shoot like that  He must have seen my head up.

She was already rods away,  plunging through the bushes with tho  one thought of being at the bend In  advance of the sheriff's posse.  They were edging cautiously across  a narrow shelf only a few rods below  when she reached the desired point and  threw her rifle In position. It was too  good a chance to be lost,  "Hands up l" she ordered sternly.  Ten pairs of eyes flashed at ber In  consternation as the same number of  hands rose Into the air, but as they  j.aw_the-faee_beyond the rifle barrel the  hands went down with simultaneous  relief. They had thought it Sels. Some  of the men began to laugh.  "I said 'Hands up!"* Luisita repeated slowly. "I am not making words,  and most of you know how I can  shoot Senor Sels is escaping from  you now, and I shall keep you here until he ls safe.

The London Times says: The Queea  received at Buckingham Palace recently the Rev. W. Carllle, Honorary  Chief Secretary of the Church, Army,  who laid before Her Majesty a statement of the operations of the institution. We learn from a statement furnished by Mr. Carllle that when toll  that her generous gift of ������ 50 at Christmas had stimulated others to provide  in all over 6,000 dinners for those who  would otherwise have had none, Her  Majesty said; "I was deeply touched.  by the accounts I read of the affectionate sympathy with which the poor dear .  people received the mention of my  name." Her Majesty made special enquiries after the prisoners' wives and  children, and seemed most thankful  that the Princess of Wales and others  were helping the Church Army to get  work for them till their husbands cama  out. She made special enquiries concerning the respectable married men,  with wives and families, Who were being relieved by the Mansion . Houst*  fund. "I am so glad," she said, "that  aid can come through you to, hundreds  of those who cannot qualify ��������� by six  months' residence for the Mansion  House relief." Her Majesty then referred to two special cases which had  been assisted by the Church Army-  one being a bricklayer, whom she badi  herself assisted. She thanked tha  Church Army for finding him Immediate work, as it had enabled him to begin getting his furniture out of pawn.  She was grateful to the Church Army  for enabling a woman whom she had  recommended to find work. She sent  affectionate greetings to all the earnest  ���������^fSfKeT^Of"^lre~ehurchr;A*rmy-throagh���������  out the world, encouraging them to livu  and labor for the good of others.

Arsenio  in Beer Barrel.  Extraordinary evidence was "given;  at an inquest at Bury St; Edmunds,  England, on Robert DIckman, a farm  laborer, who died after drinking a glass  of home-brewed beer at the North  Stow Farm, on the Culford estate.  The county analyst stated that an  analysis of a sample of the beer ot  which DIckman had partaken had revealed the presence of 98 grains of arsenio per pint, sufficient-to kill; 25 ot  80 persons. ,.''-,  , (  The barrel from which the beet,  was taken was shown to have originally contained a double-strength weed  destroyer, consisting of a strong solution of arsenic. When sent outby the  manufacturer it bore large,,brass labels  at either end, warning' users' of the  dangerous contents pf the-barrel.  The career of tho barrel was traced  through various hands Until it Was finally Bold by auction to a. West Stow  butcher, who afterwards sold -It to  Dlckman's brother-hv-lavtf "th6'"lonant  of North Stow Farm, who used* It for  browing boor.  Arsenic was found by the analyst  still clinging to the sides of the barrel,  and he estimated that there was sufficient to kill ovor 2,400 person*.
