I threw up my hands,  figuratively, groaned literally and with  an expletive not at all In harmony with  the best ethics of polite society declared to my tortured soul that she had the  sphinx beaten a mile.  The same not being an elegant thing  to do, I excuse it only on the ground  that I was worried to the ppint of irresponsibility. I swore by all the gods,  from the little mud god of the Digger  Indian to the war god Thor, never to  have anything more to say to her. Fifteen minutes later I was back on the  hotel veranda watching that tantalizing, inscrutable glint in ber eye. For  I was human, *nd she was very dear  to me.  And the worst of it was she knew  It Once let a girl know you love her  and you are lost.  "And you don't wish me to go out  with Mr. Blakeslee?" she said with pro-  vokiug mildness.   "And why, please?"  "First," I broke out, "because you're  going to marry me, and that in itself  ought"���������  "Indeed! And will you kindly tell  me just when I promised to marry you,  Mr. Jack Weston?"  She wasn't angry. I had not even  that satisfaction. But I was both angry and in love.  "You���������well, you know it's as good as  settled," I began, but she interrupted  me.  "As���������good���������as���������settled!" she murmured dreamily. "Watch me now!" she  Bald. She lifted her hand toward-a  brilliant butterfly which had alighted  upon a rose at the edge of the porch.  Her fingers opened. "See!" she said  breathlessly. VI reach my hand���������my fingers nearly touch him. Have I got  him, though? It seems all I have to  do is to close my fingers so���������ah!" The  gaudy creature eluded her just aa her  -finger3-br.Ushedvhis_stidpei_wJngs.__JiI,  didn't get him!" she sighed. "And I  was so euro of htm!"  She jumped up, gave me a teasing  smile and ran dowritbe steps. Presently I saw her with Blakeslee going  toward the boat landing. A little later  they were moving briskly up the river,  and then I saw-  It made my heart stop. Blakeslee  palpably was,the rawest club in a canoe, and a canoe with an unskillful  MIHH MIMVOOIl,   HTUANni-r.Y  QIMWT,   I!lJl>  i*m*i* in 'inu norion ow tun oanub.  hand on tlio paddle In about aa dan**  Borons iih if powder mill with a livo  coal I'liii-'I'ing about in It,  l Hinricil Involuntarily toward tlio  boat binding whore my own canoe  lay.

And then I determined that, come  what might, I would do so no more. It  might break my heart, but I was determined. Then, too, my heart -was all  crushed to frazzles anyway, so a little  more breaking would be a mere incident not worth considering.  A mutter of thunder in the west, and  I glanced up in apprehension, A black  cloud was rolling up through the pines,  and already the wind was beginning to  sway the tree tops, I rose and looked  up the river. No canoe was In sight  Filled with alarm I climbed into my  canoe, a tiny thins?, and naddled tur*-  ously up tne stream ahead of the rising  wind.  Half a mile up the river, and no sign  of the canoeist*. The wind swept down  and almost instantly the water waa  beaten into whitecaps, and the little  shell bobbed like a cork, but I held it  straight ahead and watched it with the  instinct of one trained to the paddle.  And then the rain came!  As I rounded a bend in the channel  I saw them. They were huddled under  a heavy pine near the water's edge.  The waves were trying to drag the canoe away from the bank, and Blakeslee. the uicture of woe, was struggling  to get it asnore.  I ran my canoe close in and sprang  upon the bank before they saw me. It  was growing dark, what with the  storm and the lateness of the hour.  Miss Milwood turned and gave a glad  cry. . "  "Oh, Jack," she said piteously, "I'm  so glud! We've been unable to get  home! Our canoe was beaten back by  the storm, and it upset and we were  thrown into the water, and it was a  mercy it was near the shore, else we'd  have drowned!"  "How did you escape?" I asked  stiffly.  "We���������we waded! And I'm chilling to  death, Ja������k!" Her lips were blue with  cold, and she shivered miserably. Poor  Blakeslee. was in no better plight.  I hastened to right the other canoe  with Blakeslee's help. Then I put the  luckless boatman aboard, paddled him  across to the mainland and bade him  sprint for the hotel and get a roaring  fire ready. I then recrossed the river,  lifted the terrified girl into the large  canoe, tied the other behind and set out  in the teeth of the storm. Doggedly  and steadily, keeping as much as possl-  .bJejn^th.e_lea_oXjthe_jh^^  down the angry sheet of water. Ml-ss  Milwood, strangely quiet, huddled in  the bottom of the canpe and said not  a word. But I could hear her teeth  chattering and I felt love and pity  struggling hard with my new resolution to be grimly firm and uncompromising.  My muscles were aching and my  heart throbbing as though it would  burst when at last we drew into the  shelter of the boathouse. I fastened  tho canoes and lifted tho wet figure  ashore.  "Oh, Jack," she quavered, "I should  have died if you hadn't"���������  "I beg you won't mention it, Miss  Milwood," I said with exaggerated politeness. It was a moan thing to say. I  realized it at the tlmo, but it was necessary if I was to crush tho fierce longing to take her in iny arms.  I hurried her ,up to the hotel. From  time to time sho pushed back her wet  hair and gazed at me with a pathetic  wlstfulness which I affected not to see.  The storm hnd blown swiftly away,  and the big white, moon was sailing  through the sky dotted with scudding  cloud drift.  I resigned bor to the enro of the solicitous Mrs. Kerens, who was all  sympathy aud bustling mothorllness,  Blnkesloo was thero iii an agony of contrition. I wont nwny, changed my wot  clothing and sat down within tho half  lighted library, gloomily watching tho  pluo logs In tho wldo fireplace,  After about nn hour a 11 in Id hand  parted tlio curtains, and I know without turning my bend who It was. She  cii'iuo In slowly.  ".lack," sho auld tremulously.  I sprung to my foot and offered her a  chair. (Sho refused to notice It. Sho  held out her hand.*. 1 lu turu refused  to notice thoin.  "Jack," she whispered, "are you nn������  KIT?"  "Not at all, Miss Milwood!" I rejoined, still excessively pollto and proper,  "I inn merely going to reform."1  She know,  For a moment she stood sllont with  hor bond bont^ dowu, 1 stood giwlng  ovor her head with eyos which dared  not look for a moment nt hers, else all  wore lout Thon I hoard hor sob.  NO DOUBT ABOUT  ROBT. BOND'S .CASE  HE WAS CURED OF BRIGHT'S DISEASE BY DODD'S KIDNEY PJLLS  Doctors   Said   There   Was   No   Hope  For Him but He is a Well  Man  Now  Mount Brydges, Ont., Jan. 9.���������(Special)���������That Dodd's Kidney Pills cure  Bright's Disease completely and permanently has been clearly shown in  the case of Mr. Itobt. Bond, a well-  known resident of   this   place.    Mr.  Bondv does not hesitate to say   that  he owes his life to   Dodd's   Kidney  puis.   ���������;-' ..'"  "Mjr; attending physician," Mr. Bond  states, "said I was in the last stages  of Bright's Disease and that there  was no hope for me. I then commenced to ij.se Dodd's Kidney Pills  and no other'remedy. I used in all  about "twenty boxes when my doctor  pronounced me quite well. I have  had no return of the trouble since."  Bright's Disease is Kidney disease  in its worst form. Dodd's''. Kldtfej*  Pills always cure it. They alsd easily cure milder forms of Kidney -Complaint.  . -  Sudden  Ian Maclaren recounted this story  in a lecture on Scottish humor: -In a  dull Scottish village, on a dull morn-  ing, one neighbor called at another's  house. He was met at the'door ;;by  his friend's wife, and the conversation which ensued was thus: "Cauld?"  "Ay." "Gaxin to be / vyeety- (rainy),  I'm thinkin'." "Ay." "Is John in?"  "Ou, ay! he's in." "Can I see him?"  "Na." "But a wanted tae see him."  "Ay, but ye canna see him. John's  deid." "Deid?" "Ay." "Sudden?"  'Ay," "Verra sudden?" "Ay,, verra  sudden." "Did he say onything aboot  a pot o' geen pent afore he deed?"  A puff is a poor prop.  Convictions create character.  All power involves privileges.  Fast living is but faster dying.  Only a fool's tomorrow ruins today.  Right motives make good manners.  Blessings are hidden in the blows  of pain.  We do not earn heaven by pining  for paradise.  A Novel Theater.  Probably the -most .novel theater in  the world is that which was recently  opened at Thale.in Germany. The theater Is on the summit of a mountain  and is surrounded on all sides by steep  rocks,'the seats for the audience are  hewn'put of the i-ock and accommodate- 1,000 persons, and the stage,  ���������which is also hewn out of the rock, Is  eighty/' feet long by fifty-four feet  wldevv No artificial scenery is used, but  the background is formed by tbe dense  forest and by the outlines of the mountains in the.distance. ���������  Culinary Protsreas.  Germans have long, sinee accustomed  us to the edible fork, and now, says a  contemporary, English hotel keepers  have started art odlble menu card. It  Is made of biscuit and not meant to be  eaten, of course, until the end of the  meal. A menu card and a glass of  wine will, however; it is thought., satis-*  fy many who like'a quick lunch. If  progress is made.nlong these'lilies we  shall", soon have edible waiters.���������London-iBystander,  \.

Every mother should always, keep a  box of Baby's Own Tablets in tho  house. This medicine acts promptly  and speedily, cures such ills as stomach and bowel troubles, teething  troubles, simple fevers, colds, worms,  and other little ills. And the mother has a guarantee ,that the Tablets  contain no opiate or harmful drug.  One wise mother, Mrs. Geo. Hardy,  Fourchu, N.S��������� says: "I have used  Baby's Own Tablets and. find them a  blessing to children. I am not satisfied without a box in the house at  all times." If your dealer does not  keep these Tablets In stock send 25  cents to Tho Dr. Williams' Medicine  Co., Brockville, Ont., and you will  get a box by mail postpaid.  How's This!

DOG  AND  DIPLOMAT  By LOWELL OTUS REESE  Copynght.   1904,   by   LoweD   Otm   Reese  Magnolia was one of those quiet little towns by the southern sea where  many people go to spend the winter.  Ita chief beauty lay in the wide forest  of live oaks all about, through which  wound the level driveway, with ita accompanying bicycle path. The sea  knocked lazily at the door, but never  with enough energy to cause the quiet  little town to give it any attention beyond that of an occasional midwinter  bathing party or a clambaking expedition up the coast, where the rocks  were large and black in the moonlight  and the scene peculiarly adapted to the  telling of ghost stories and the walks  home eminently well suited to the telling of love stories which, while not so  thrilling, were infinitely more satisfactory.  Carleton saw her on the avenue one  morning. He watched her enter a certain house with magnolias in the front  yard. She entered with an air of proprietorship, and Carleton promptly decided that it was her home. He strode  away to the nearest drug store and by  skillful diplomacy elicited from tbe  benevolent old gentleman with spectacles that the house was,occupied by  Colonel Barclay of New York, and���������  But Carleton promptly forgot the  rest of it as being "irrelevant, incompetent and immaterial." He remembered the name, however, and be saw  her again that evening���������afar off.  He was a modest fellow, and he tried  to keep out of sight. However, he  ���������thought about ber most assiduously,  and finally he dreamed about her. This  was getting serious. To think all day  about a girl you've never met and to  dream about her all night is alarming  and an indication that it is time for  you to leave town or hunt up a mutual  friend.  Carleton knew no one in Magnolia,  and he could  not induce. himself to  -_lea.ve._i He  continued   to   haunt  tbe  beach and drive and tell his troubles  to the big pointer, who always listened with an appreciative thump of the  tail and a, tremendous droop of hia  cavernous jaw.  One evaning Carleton was lying upon  the grass half a mile from town when  suddenly the pointer sprang up with  a startled bark and rushed out into  the middle of the bicycle path, frisking  and ready for a romp. He was just in  time to collide with Miss Barclay's  wheel and send that frightened, young  lady to the ground in au undignified  beap.  Carleton ran out In a perfect agony  of contrition. "It's all Don's fault!"  he cried. "I hope you won't���������are you  hurt?" he finished anxiously.  The young lady was regarding her  muddy costume with mingled wrath  and mortification. Her faco burned a  rosy red, and she sprang quickly upon  her wheel and started with all speed  from the scene of hor tumble.-  "IIo's a horrid, muddy beast," she  half sobbed, "and if I owned him I  would havo hhn shot." Thon with a  half glance at the abject young man,  who stood hat In hand, she swept  around a bend in the road and wns  gone,  Carleton stood benumbed. "Tt'a all  over now," ho sighed, "Don, you've  done It this time all right." The poor  pointer hung his head and slunk away  to Ho down behind a treo und watch  his master with agonized, apprcliou.  ���������lvo eyes. Ho was guilty, but so sorry.  Carleton regarded him long" nnd  thoughtfully.  "Don, old boy," ho said, "It's up to  ,you,   You've got to be sacrificed.   It  goes hard with ma, old chap, but she  has condemned you, and thut Bottles  It."  Don wagged his tall anxiously nnd  with doubt. IIo didn't understand, on-  ly that things woro not at all right and  that thero was troublo ahead.

"Well!" ejaculated Miss Barclay  when she had read it. "Oh, my!" She  glanced furtively up and down the  street and across the way and seemed  about to run. Nobody was in sight,  however, save a ragged negro boy carrying a valise around the corner. "How  foolish of me!" she smiled. She reread the note and looked at the dog.  ���������Don wigwagged her a friendly signal,  and the tears came to her eyes. "Kill  such a dear fellow!   Never!"  She sat down on the grass and puckered her brows as she thought. Presently a light came into ber eyes and  she gasped. Then she frowned and  smiled. "  "Impudent rascal!" she said. "He's  trying to get acquainted with me. It's  perfectly outrageous of him!" She  tried to be angry���������very, very angry.  But somehow she did not quite succeed. She remembered the picture of  a tall, flushed young fellow with a  well bred face standing before her  with a look of miserable apology, and  she was bound to confess that sbe was  not able to feel just as indignant as  she ought. She read the note once  more.  "Impudent!" she said to Don. "IraV  pudent���������but���������but clever!" and she  laughed. The dog laughed back and  whacked the ground violently with his  tail.  Then the real serious part of the puzzle occurred to her. She did not" know  the man's address. How then could  sbe send this valuable animal back to  him? And really did she not owe him  ah apology for her rude remark to him  yesterday? He had not been to blame,  and be bad tried so hard to apologize.  After awhile she decided to advertise  ���������discreetly. It seemed'the best solution of the distracting problem. She  untied the rope and led the dog around  to the rear of the house, where she  turned bim over to the housemaid, and  went in to telephone her advertisement  "EoT3Ie~pTFper.  ~   "       ~~��������������������������� , , ���������  Fifteen minutes later she found herself-out in the back yard again. Don's  eyes met ber reproachfully. He was  conflued ignomiuiously in a chicken  coop.  Miss Barclay tried her best to think  it was all right. Then she gave it up.  He was such a splendid dog after all!  She took hiiuVfrom the coop and allowed him the freedom of tbe back  yard. Don did not abuse the privilege.  He seemed to understand that be was  on parole. He lay down at her feet and  watched hor adoringly. She wandered  away to the ���������hammock and tried to forgot the whole incident in a book. Don  followed, sat down aiid peered solemnly over the edge of the hammock with  grave eyes which seemed to ' say,  "What are you going to do about it?"  That evening Carleton picked up the  paper and read:  R. C���������Your dog has beon pardoned and  releasfMl on his own recognizance. Please  come and got lilm. L. H.

"Yes," said Miss Barclny, with a shy  smile, "bo's almost as great a diplomat  ns his master, nave that ho lacks hia  master's Impudence."

McClure  I  0  5J>  ������  is-  ������  i  a*  ty  9  i  Barbara stood at the gate drinking  in the mountain air, which was like a  draft of wine to her. The sun, hanging  just above the crest of Bald Hill, had  lifted the early morning fog and set  the dew covered spider webs on the  grass shimmering like so many clusters  of crystals. Adown the road linnets  and thrushes were chirping merrily in  tne woods, and occasionally the breeze  wafted the scent of pines to ber. The  woods were calling her. She would  not disregard such an invitation.  She ran lightly into the house and  presently reappeared with a parasol  and a small red volume. Aceoutered  thus, she started down tbe road, followed by her aunt's admonition to be back  "PARDON MB, DOCTOR, BUT THEY'VE JUST  GOT HER."  to dinner at noon and to remember not  to cross the Johnsons' pasture, where  rattlesnakes had been seen recently.  Barbara went briskly toward the  woods with a feeling that on such a  day it wns indeed good to be alive.  Well down the road she passed the  groat arched gateway of the sanitarium, and, looking up the steep driveway, sho could see tho buildings perched on the hill. She had not been down  this road for ton years, but sho suddenly remembered, with a little thrill  of pity for its Inmates, tbat the rod  brick building on the extreme left was  the insane pavilion.  She took the little footpath which  led across tho lower ond of the sanitarium grounds and Into the pine  woods, She found a place where giant  pines towered many feet skyward and  the ground was covered thickly with  pine needles. Horo sho sat down and  listened for a time to tho tinkle of a  tiny brook hard by and the sighing of  the breeze through the pine tops. She  hnd just opened tho little red volume  when tho cracking of a twig warned  her of some one's approach. Sho looked up. Boforo her, hat lu band, stood  a handsome, woll groomed young man,  who regarded her with n steadiness of  (ttv/.e decidedly disconcerting' As sho  looked up he bowed gravely.  "Good morning, I'rincoss I.oulso," ho  said in a cheerful volco. "Really delightful morning, Isn't It?"  Barbara's mouth curved scornfully.  Then, all nt once, the truth flashed upon hor, This man boforo her wns a  st rayed Inmato of tho Insane pavilion.

"Oh, no, indeed not," she assured  him, at the same time extending her  wrist to him. He pulled put bis watch  and took her wrist lightly in his hand.  Presently he dropped it and returned  fie watch to hia pocket.  "Ah, thank you," be said as he drew  a tablet from his pocket and began  writing rapidly on one of the pages  with a pencil. He laid the tablet aside,  and as it lay on the ground near her  Barbara read in, the round, full hand  on the page:  "Janet Tolman.  "June 14. Tucker's Grove. Eyesun  usually dilated. Conversation rational.  Pulse 83."  "And now, Princess Louise," the  young man was saying, "1 think we'd  better seek the banquet hall."  He rose and slipped the tablet and  pencil into his pocket  "I'm���������it's very comfortable here," she  said, and then as a forlorn hope she  added, "but don't let me detain you."  "But really "I insist," he said, with  well bred firmness.  Barbara dared no longer hesitate.  "Henry IV." assisted her to her feet,  and as she gained them he slipped her  arm through his own. She felt hia  arm pinning hers firmly against his  side and realized that opposition waa  useless. Together they started through  the grove^ and Barbara was surprised  to find they took the path leading to tbe  sanitarium. They gained the grounds  and started up tbe hill toward the  buildings, "Henry IV." meantime conversing pleasantly and Barbara answering him as best she could. She  breathed more freely now, for she was  sure they would soon encounter an attendant, who would relieve her of her  dangerous escort.  Tbey had nearly gained the summit  of the hill when an attendant in white  coat came running toward them.  "Pardon me, doctor." he said, addressing Barbara's companion, "but  they've just got her."  "Who?" said the oth-'r quickly.  "The Tolman woman. Found her in  the laundry," said the attendant "Here  they come now," he added, pointing to  two men who led a struggling woman  between them.  "Good Lord!" gasped the erstwhile  "Henry IV."   "Wbo have I got. then?"  "Then���������then you're not insane?" said  TJarbaniTlpIgl^  sudden removal of the tension.  "I wasn't an hour ago," he said, rub-'  blng bis forehead in a bewildered  fashion.  "A woman named Tolman confined  here escaped, as we supposed, this  morning," he explained. "You are the  image of her, which accounts for my  actions in the grove. She thinks she's  Princess Louise and everybody else is  some othor celebrity. Henry IV. fell  to.my lot. I'm particularly interested  In the case, and because I was wondering what effect the quiet of tbe  woods would have I took your pulse  and mado thoso notes In the grove.  It's a terribly absurd situation. I  dou't know how to apologize to you,  I presume you thought me insane and  tried to humor me,"  "Precisely," said Barbara, and tboy  both laughed heartily.  "At least, lot me got my automobile  and take you home." be said, "I presume you've hnd quite enough of the  grove for one day."  "Thank you," said Barbara, "but It's  only a step to whero I am staying with  my aunt, Mrs. Durgln."  "Mrs. Durgln's!" snid the, doctor.  "Why, I spend half my evenings  there."  "Oh, then you must be Dr. Dennett,  my aunt's Idol," said Barbara.  "A fallen idol, I fear," ho returned,  "when she hears of my latoat escapade."  Three months later thoy sat one  evening before tho fireplace at Mrs,  Durgln's.  "Really, Barbara," tho doctor laid,  "I domnnd an answer,"  Barbara lifted her downcaBt *y*t  ind flushed becomingly.  "I supposo I should humor you, aa I  did once before, 'Henry IV,'" she said.

At the time of the destruction of the  Bastille the most remarkable of the unfortunate wretches who had been confined within its Avails was the Comte  de Jorge, and he was brought to Mme.  Tussaud that she might take a cast of  his face. He had been incarcerated  for thirty years, and when liberated he  begged to bo taken back,to his prison.  Tlie people flocked in thousands to see  the dungeons, and Mme. Tussaud, was  prevailed upon to accompany her uncle  and a few friends for the same purpose. While descending the narrow  stairs her foot slipped, and she was oa  the point of falling when she was  saved by Robespierre, who held out his  protecting bond and just prevented  her from coming to the ground. "It  would indeed have been a great pity if  60 young and pretty a patriot should  have broken her neck in such a horrid  pl������ce," said Robespierre, in his own  peculiar complimentary style.���������"Memoirs of Anna Maria PJekering."

As Eugenie entered her .oom her  cousin's clear tones floated through the  open window.  "She is having one of her Bpells  -againSbecause^she_isr������t_a_JH.eIeQ���������pJL  Troy, and it reminds me of our school  days. Do you remember when she cut  off her hair in a rage because it was  brown and straight instead of yellow  and curly like mine?"  "Now, I call that mean of Julia," Eugenie thought, her face growing crira-  Bon as she heard them laugh. If she  had not shut tbe window just then she  might have heard the doctor's answer.  "No one but Eugenie thinks her face  Isn't good to look at."  By and by Julia ascended the stairs  and tapped at her cousin's door.  "Dr. Hunt has his auto here and  Wishes us to ride with him. Get your  hat and come on."  "Thanks. I have another engagement."  "All  right,"   answered the  widow  sweetly. "I'll try to make up for your  absence."  "I don't doubt It," observed Eugenie.  Mrs. Knox weut down live steps and  paused. She-wrinkled hor white brow  unbecomingly, sighed and wont back.  "Honoy," she called softly, her pretty  lips at tho koyholo, "did no ono evoi  tell you that along with the Barnett  nose you inherited the Barnett trick of  making folks like you?"  Eugenie's grim features relaxed.  "Good little Julia," she sighed as the  red auto puffed away.  Bor mind trailed back into the past.  Bho was a llttlo, dark faced girl again,  playing with Fraukle Hunt, hor sworn  champion until her cousin, Julia Epps,  camo to school. Personified daintiness  was Julia Epps, from tho blue bow ou  her yellow curls to the bluck bows on  hor tiny slippers.  One miserable, lonely noon hour Bu-  goiile poored around tho boocb trot  where she and bo had always played together and saw soiuothlng the memory  of which evon aftor a dozen years  made a groen flame leap Into the woman Eugenie's eyos. Frank lo Hunt  was putting on Julia Epps' finger the  ring which he had been digging out of  a black button for her, Eugenie Barnett.  Another day sho nnd Julia sat on Julia's mother's porch eating cookies.  With her free hand Julia smoothed her  ruffled white apron complacently.

Eugenie wore no apron. She  had been forced to start with one. but  It was lying InglorioUsly under a stone  In a fence corner. Retribution lay  within its crumpled folds, but retribution could wait  Just before recess she looked at  Frankie Hunt. His eyes had been Axed upon her all the morning, and now  he smiled entreatingly, Eugenie modestly lowered her eyes. At recess she  itayed In her seat bain* vary busy  with her geography. Frankie Hunt  was tying a refractory shoe string.  When the teacher was out of sight he  jumped over four intervening deska to  Eugenie's seat.  "You look awful nice, Genie. Will  you be my girl?" he said.  And Eugenie answered, solemnly, "If  you'll cross your heart and hope to die  you'll always love me better'n Julia  Epps."  The woman  Eugenie laughed and  came back to the present.  "History sometimes repeats itself,"  she remarked.   "I don't see now why  Julia Knox"���������  A half mile from Mrs. Knox's cot-'  tage the red auto, puffing back, came  upon a surprising sight A young woman, looking at once defiant and apologetic, her white dress mud spattered  and blood stained, her brown hair  blown about by a saucy sea breeze,  stood by the roadside holding in her  arms a dilapidated yellow mongrel,  one leg swathed stiff in plaid silk bandages, it ',  "Eugenie, where in the world are  you going with that dirty dog?" shrilled the widow.  "Home," answered Eugenie laconically, turning toward a short cut across  the hill. I  "What's this?" and Dr. Hunt stepped  out of the auto. "Broken leg, eh? Well,  old fellow, you are in luck to get a  capable surgeon in your hour of calamity. Silk bandages, too. I wonder if  the splints are gold or ivory."  "1 had forgotten my handkerchief, bo  I had to use my neck ribbon," she explained, starting to go.  "Get in here, Genie!", He used the  pet name as in the old days. "This ls  better than walking."  "Oh, don't!" shrieked Julia Knox.  "Don't get in here with that awful  TRiin"~rclnpn5eair^^  She closed her eyes shudderingly.       ������  The little dog whined softly and tried  to lick Eugenie's face. Her pulse leaped as she met the doctor's eyes.  "You did it scientifically, and you  aren't a bit pale. Shouldn't you like  to be a doctor?"  "Or a doctor's wife?" suggested Julia  Kriok, a trifle maliciously.  "Will you, dear?" he asked eagerly,  watching the color flood her dark  cheek. "Will you be this doctor's  wife?"  "Well!" said the pretty widow explo-  sively, "I guess I'm not needed here.  Eugenie, if you can guarantee that  little beast not to bite I suppose I can  take him home for you."  "I can't," said Eugenie happily, starting for the third time across the hill.  "But," Interposed the doctor, "you  haven't answered my question. Will  yon be my girl, Genie?"

A wealthy Frenchman has started a  home for aged animals at his country  place and now has a mule seventy-  three years old, a goose thirty-seven  and a cow thirty-six.  A Milford Haven (England) trawler  recently landed twelve fine sturgeon  caught in one haul. Some of them were  six feet long. Such a catch had never  been known previously.  A Vermont hen which has never been  able to raise any chicks of her own  has mothered the eggs of bantams,  geese, ducks and even pigeons. Her  latest exploit was to discover and  hatch a nest of bald eagles.  One of the curiosities of this curious  _age of ours was caught in the waters  of the Choptank river some time ago/  It was a good sized terrapin with a  healthy, well developed oyster on its  back and was both literally and figuratively an oyster on four legs.  In Champery, Switzerland, the Sight  '   Cuusea  No  Comment.  It win probably be news to many advocates of feminine dress reform to  hear that the women of Champ'ery, a  primitive mountain district of the Canton Valais, Switzerland, have worn  trousers from time immemorial. The  Champery region is in the southwestern part of tlie Canton Valais, the village of Champery itself being at the  foot of the Dent du Midi, well known  to Lake Geneva tourists.  The men of Champery are noted for  their lazy habits, and beyond acting as  guides to mountain climbers in tlie  summer months they lead an absolute-  ly Idle life. The women perform all  the hard labor required of a mountaineering people. It is they who pasture  the cattle on the steep and often dangerous Alpine slopes, cut the timber  and mow the grass. It is a usual  sight to see a Champery woman, her  daily toil ended, -.returning- to the village dragging her husband on one 'of  the wooden sleighs in general use  throughout Switzerland, ber lord and  master all the while lazily smoking his  pipe.  Under such circumstances it Is riot  surprising that the women of Champery should have adopted the masculine attire. Their costume is of the  simplest kind���������a jerkin of rough, dark  blue material, with trousers to match,  and a red foulard to protect the head.  While desperately practical, nothing  more unprepossessing in the way of  feminine dress could be imagined than  this costume of the Champery dames  and damsels. Moreover," these ' wives  and mothers, of Champery, who are accustomed to all the work generally  supposed to be the Jot of the sterner  sex, not unnaturally seek what consolation they can in masculine comforts.  Chief among these is the short briar  pipe, which they all smoke and evidently enjoy as much if not more than  their husbands and fathers.  POOR TROMBETTI!  The  and  POINTED PARAGRAPHS.  Business, like* your salary, might always be better.  The croquette is the old fashioned  hash ball after it gets into society.  Some, people are too insistent on the  right to be fools in their own way.  Sad  Tale of the  l'rofeiiaor  the Journalist.  Professor Trombetti, whose praises  were so much sung in the foreign, press  as knowing the ��������� greatest number of  languages of any one ever born, relates  an anecdote of himself which occurred  just after he was "discovered." In  Rome he was so pestered by journalists that his patience at last gave way,  and when cornered by the gentlemen  of the press his language became distinctly lurid.  .One day as he was coming out of the  central postoffice a frank looking  young man stepped up to him, and,  holding out his hand, said: "1 am so  glad to make your acquaintance; I  have been trying to find you for days."  "And may I inquire with whom I am  'speaking?" "Why, I am X! Not a  near relation to be sure, but near  enough to offer you congratulations,"  etc. Professor Trombetti, reassured,  and glad to get hold of some one to  unburden himself to, took the stranger's arm, and, as they went down the  street, gave, in emphatic terms, a"  description of his sufferings, his opinion of journalists, and, incidentally,  much information about himself which  the papers had been vainly sighing for.  Finally they parted with an engagement for dinner the next evening.  That night the professor was sitting  tranquilly in a restaurant, the observed  pf all observers, Avhen suddenly be waa  seen to spring to his feet with a smothered exclamation. His friends crowded  about for an explanation, but he could  only sit down weakly and point to bis  newspaper, the Giornale d'ltalia.  There, in large print, were his imprudent revelations of the afternoon. He  had been "done" by a journalist���������Pall  Mall Gazette.  THE PERFECT NUMBER.  THE COOKBOOK.  A loaf of stale bread is almost as  good as when newly baked when  wrapped closely in a towel and steamed  through thoroughly.  Do not invariably throw away tho  oil from the can of sardines. It is a  very good substitute for butter when  codfish balls or made over dishes of  fish are on hand.  Tbo fishy taste can he removed from  canned salmon or lobster by putting It  in a colander, pouring boiling water  over it and then lotting it stand long  enough to drain and cool.  COLLEGE AND SCHOOL.  81. ��������� Iind Her War*  The late Counselor E,, chairman of  the quarter sessions for, Dublin, was so  remarkable for his leniency to female  culprits tbat a woman was seldom convicted when he presided.  On one occasion whon this humane  barrister was in the chair a prim looking woman was put to the bar of the  commission court, at which presided  the equally humane though perhaps  not so gallant Baron B.  She was Indicted for uttering forged  bank notes, According to UBual forms  of law, the clerk of tbe crown asked  the prisoner If she was ready to take  hor trial.  Wltb becoming disdain sbe answered  "Nol" She was told by the clerk sbe  must give ber reasons why.  As If scorning to hold conversation  with the official, sbe thus addressed  his lordship; "My lord, I won't be  tried bore at all, I'll be tried by my  Lord H."

ZINGGl  ������'������������������������������������   Editor  and   Proprietor  of  the  Wapella  Post  1/  *��������� Mr. E. S. Zingg of Wapella is a  living illustration ol the truth of the  saying current among newspapermen,  that the man who has the ability to  conduct a successful country journal  has all the characteristics necessary  to success in almost any undertaking.  As an editor Mr. Zingg has a splendid record, but, such is his irrepressible activity, that his editorship is  ,'only one of the many forms of his  'Proteau activity. The production  weekly of such a newspaper as the  Wapella Post might well demand and  ^cpjiSAii7ae���������tkc,*.yhole_.o.0.he_time_ahd;  ttalent of its proprietor.   But with Mr.  , Zingg it is otherwise���������a    mere  segment of his work,    nothing    but    a  necessary and incidental part of the  ' week's, -routine.        ., ,.-.'-��������� ������������������  Mr. Zingg not only writes the editorial and local matter for the Post,  rustles the ads and looks after subscriptions and the accounts, but runs  a furniture business, does a'ilttle in  real estate and dabbles in insurance.  Even those do not keep entirely occupied the energetic Wapella'editor. He  Is the president of the local board of  trade/Into which institution he has  Infused much of his own spirit of  progressive onergy, and which is one  of the most virile forces for local  improvement In the Territories. And  Mr. Zingg's local patriotism does not  stop hero. He is a member of the  Wapella town council/and one of the  foremost and most forceful figures in  municipal and local life In the community.  Undoubtedly tlio real test of ability  and worth is the regard in which a  iiian ls held by those with whom he  dally associates. True, It is said that  a prophet Is not without honor,,save  ' In his own country. This may be  the crtse when a man goes into the  profession of prophecy, but It "has no  application In commercial, and least  of all in editorial, life. In tlio realm  of journalism, in which a man Is under tho Bpot-llght of ' publlo observation and criticism every, ;������)lniit0- of  tho time ho Is awake, ���������ln'vvvhich his  notions and opinions aro canvasserl,  judged and Wolgliod by \ tli'e^wholo  . community, a fakir, a humbug, or a  hypocrite Is soon slaed up and sol  down at his true valuation. Tf a. man  wears well, and steadily appreciates  In pulblle ojUoujii, it la boc'itine ho Is  "all wool and a yard wide," and  shoddy does not outer Into his composition. That Mr. Zingg is in this  clasa, and that his jivogroaBlvonoss,  hia ability, and his trustworthiness  aro host recognized by those who  know lilm most liit.lniai.oly, tho In-  fliioneo of the Post, and tho public  positions he occupies, aro tlto most  convincing proofs.  The editor In tho average Western  ' town has to go up ngalnst somo  pretty hard propositions. He Is not  In the position of his brother In a  city, who can how to tho lino nnd lot  tho chips full where they will.

Evidently  from the bonon accorded him E. 8.  Zio-fg Um   accompllihod   all   thit���������  which Is only to say that he has approved himself a diplomat and an  able man.  To readers of this journal the Wapella Post, which is among the most  looked for and carefully read of their  Territorial exchanges,������ is the best  recommendation that. Its editor could  desire. Its news is brightly written*  and well arranged. Its editorial utterances are moderate and sensible,  evidently the reflection of a thoughtful mind. Its advertising patronage  is proof positive as>to the appreciation  in which it is held by the lecal-merchants, aiid the care and taste. wifch  which their" business* news Is set up,  and the general caro as to typography and make-up, shows that the mechanical department is fully the equal  of the others under Mr. Zingg's management.  While the professional ability of an  editor can always'-be -best 'estimated  by the appearance and standing- of  the newspaper he controls, it is altogether silent as to his, personal  Ihisto'ry, and the few facts 'following  concerning Mr. Zingg will be welcomed by those who . hitherto have  known him only through the Post, or  as one of the most reliable members  of the Western Canada Press association.  E. S. Zingg was.born at Hamburg,  Waterloo County, Ontario, April 18,  1872, and is therefore but a young  man. He was educated at the public  and high schools of Walkerton and  Hanover, after which he entered the  office of the Hanover Post. Commenc-.  ing as "devil" he climbed until he  reached the rank of ' full-fledged  journeyman. Then he removed to  Toronto. He continued in the printing business until he was 20 years  of age, when he went on the road  as "drummer" for a wholesale furnlf  ture house, travelling in Ontario  and Quebec. For six' years he remained in this business, receiving a  .thoroiigh-traihing-therein?  Millionaire Fire FluhttM.  A number of millionaires who live ia  one of the Philadelphia suburbs have  formed a fire department of their own  and are to build an engine house and,  fully equip it with allthe necessary up  to date apparatus at their own expense. They will "employ a large fire  company ' and so ' protect their own  summer homes. Among the members  of the organization are John Wana-  maker, P. A. B. Widener and 0. A,,  Barney.

As said before, Mr. Zingg Is yet  young, like most Western editors, and  as cau be; seen by his "counterfeit  presentment" at the head of this  article, more than passably good looking. He is deservedly popular with  his fellow scribes in the West, and  fow were more welcome than he and  his amiable wife at the annual Press  pilgrimages which marked the palmy  era of the Western Canada Press association. Mr. Zingg has already done  much in the realm of journalism since  he came West, and more is expected  of him, for ho is justly, regarded;by  his follows as one of the most able  and promising of the editors Of the  Canadian West.  ,.    ,<f������������������^- ._'  A Smnll Pill,    Imt l*owerf!il.--Thcy  'thatijuag-o of tho powers of a pill by,  it's size* would consider Parmeleo'a  Vegetable, Pills, to be lacking, It is  a little wonder among pills.

On Friday next, the Irishmen  and sons of Irishmen, of all creeds  und parties, resident in Cumberland  and vicinity, will celeorate the festival of 0their patron Saint. The  love of all islanders for their native  land is proverbial, and the Celtic  peoples in particular have ever  been famous for their attachment  to the homes of their race, but there  is something unique in the love  - which the Emerald Isle inspires in  all her uona, whether their lineage  be Celt or Saxon Irishmen have  been unhappily divided by racial,  religious and political strife during  nearly all tbe history <-*������������������ thrir liu.e  _falftr>dtbiit:thea������niverBaiieBoftbeir  Saint's day and tbe sifchtof a green  ribbon or a bunch of Shara-ocks,  edtabliftWa bond of sympathy and;  affentibn which is stranger than any  spirit of fiction, and they unite to  toast the Hieen laid and to glory in  the achievements of Irish name and  blood of every cause. It is in military achievement that Ireland's  eminence is most marked} the little  island that has given Wellington  and Beresford, and in our own day,  Wolsely, Roberts/Kitchener and  White, has no rival as a nurse of  great soldiers. During the last  century three prime ministers, Lord  Castlereagh, the Duke of Wellington and Lord Palmerston, were of  Jrish birth. There is soarcely a  land in Europe or America that  does not treasure among its proudest memories the name of one or  more great Jriuhman.  Good luck to the Emerald Isle  and all Irishmen under all flags so  lpng as they revere and honour the  home-land*  INDISCRIMINATE PRAISB,  To say that encoring or uproariously applauding a  young performer needi a little discouragement is perhaps, putting the matter  too broadly, but we venture to say  that li ii an encouragement to me-  dioority, und if there is any native  talent likely to be injured by unjust applause, we should be within  the truth.  What every writer, musi  clan, singer, or lecturer needs is  criticism���������cool, discriminating, relentless critipi������ra.    A   provinoipl  itai.da.d oan no longer be accepted,  There are always countloBi numbers  of people at public entertainment!  wbo affect a musical education they  do not possess.    Theae smile pa*  tronliingly at every number given  by peiaon* oho mc not their particular friends, but when one in  whom they are interested appears,  then a rousing encore, often undeserved, if accorded t hem.   Wt often  hear of the constant wreck of promising talent, of cruelly di*c"*nraR������^  genius.    It ia not altogether an  ideal world for justice or (or the  appreciation   of new departures.  For one artist who has been denied  a career by want of pubiio appreciation,   ten  have been ruined by  foolish encouragement and indiscriminate praise.    Over-praise has  made them vain and self-conscious,  and unfitted them for the labor that  is needed to make them accomplished workmen. They lack knowledge,  discipline and high purpose.   They  take themselves seriously, but not  their art, and the public is often at  fault for the failure.
