Spring is the season when your
.-system needs toning up. In the spring
3*ou must have new blood just as the
���trees must have new sap. Nature demands it. Without new blood you
���will feel weak and languid; you may
have twinges of rheumatism or neuralgia, occasional headaches, a variable appetite, pimples or eruptions ot
the skin, or a pale, pasty complexion.
These are certain signs that the
jlblood is out of order. The only sure
way to get new blood and fresh energy is to take Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills. They actually make new, rich
blood���they are she greatest spring
tonic in the world. Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills clear the skin, drive out
���disease and make tired, depressed men
and women bright, active and strong.
Mr. Neil H. -McDonald, Estmero, N.
B., says: "It gives me great satisfaction to state that I have found
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills all .that is
���claimed for them. 1 was completely
run down, my appetite was poor and
I suffered much from severe headaches. Doctors' medicine did not give
me the needed relief, so I decided to
try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. I used
only a few boxes when my former
health returned, and now I feel like a
new man."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are not only
the best spring tonic, but are a cure
for all troubles-due'to poor blood or
shattered nerves. That is why they
cure headaches and backaches, rheumatism, anaemia, kidney and liver
troubles, and the special secret ailments of women and growing girls.
But you must get the genuine, with
the full name, "Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
for Pale People," printed on the wrapper around each box. Sold by all
medicine dealers or sent by mail at
50 cents a box or six boxes for $2.50
by writing the Dr. Williams Medicine
Co., Brockville, Ont.
James Whitcomb Riley says that he
-was summoned as a witness in a case
���tried in an Indiana court, where one of
the witnesses before him eiinced some
disinclination to state her age. "Is It
very necessary?" coyly as"ked the witness, a spinster of uncertain age.. "It
;is absolutely necessary, madam," in-
.the maiden, "if I must I suppose I
must. I didn't see how it could possibly affect the case, for you see"���
"Madam," observed the Judge, with
some asperity, "I must ask you not to
further waste the time of this court.
.Kindly state your age." Whereupon
���the spinster showed signs of hysterics-
"I am, that is, I was"-    "Madam,
"hurry, hurry up!" exclaimed the judge,
now thoroughly impatient. "Every
minute makes it worse, you know."
Guarantee to Mothers
��� ""There" Is only one medicine intended
"for use among infants and young
children that gives mothers a guarantee that it is freo from, opiate and
poisonous soothing stuffs. That
���medicine is Baby's Own Tablets.
"Milton L. Hersey, M. Sa.'ynibHc an-
/alyst for the Province of Quebec, and
���.demonstrator in chemistry for McGill
Unlevrslty says:���"I hereby certify
that I have made a careful analysis
of Baby's Own Tablets which I, personally purchasod in a drug store in
"Montroal, and said analysis lias failed
to detect the presence of any opiate
or narcotic in them." These Tablots

so rapidly as the floral, which Is under the direction of Mr. N. Stewart
Dunlop, tax and insurance commissioner of the company. Last autumn'
it sent bulbs to station agents, section-
men and other employee's, from one
end of the system to the other. Some
were for outdoor planting, and are expected to bloom this spring; others
were for pots and boxes indoors, that
they might bloom during the past winter. As a result of this generous distribution, there will be one million
tulips, etc., flowering along the system
this spring. Before the department
was established, the only plants and
flowers along the company's various
lines were those planted and cultivated at the expense of those agents who
wished them for their own enjoyment.
Now the company bears all expense in
connection with the purchase of thousands of the best bulbs procurable, and
not only sends them to every employee
who wishes them, but also issues folders giving information. In addition to
this, seeds are sent every spring to
employees along the system, who have
exhibited an interest in flower culture.
For this year the money appropriation made by the company to its floral
department is almost double that of
last year, so that the coming summer
should see the stations on the C.P.R.
more attractive than ever.
The seeds���numbering over 25,000
packages���are being sent out now,
and include as fine a collection as any
gardener of the most refined taste
could wish. Mr. Dunlop, to whose energies and fondness for flowers the
success of the department is due, tells
those to whom his circulars are sent
to surround their station, section house
or office building with pretty flowers,
so that not only the employees may
enjoy the fragrance and brilliancy of
the blooms, but t hat passengers on entering stations from Vancouver to St.
John may be welcomed by the beauty
of flowers.
One of the features of railways in
England is the attractiveness of the
grounds and stations along railway
system. Money is lavishly spent on
even short mileage, so that the public
will enjoy travelling. The C.P.R. is
similarly disposed to make its system
one of the most enjoyable for travel
in America.

���John J. Burns, a prominent member
of the I, O. F. here, whose cure of
Chronic Inflammation of the Loins and
Kidneys caused a sensation some time
ago. reports that he is still In splendid health. "Yes," says Mr. Burns,
"my cure is eritirely satisfactory. I
have had no trouble since I used
Dodd's Kidney Pills. They drove away
the disease from which I suffered for
eight years.
"No. I'll never forget Dodd's Kidney
Fills. The doctor could not help me.

to try Dodd's Kidney Pills. Now I am

To Pastors and Sunday School Work-
The  Twenty-sixth  Annual  Conven-1
tion of this Association will be held;
in Portage la Prairie on May 30th, [
31st and June 1st, opening at 2 o'clock
on the first day.
Appoint your delegates.���Every Sunday school within the constituency
covered by our Association, including
Rat Portage and Fort Frances on the
East to Estevan and Areola on the
Vvest; South to the International
Boundary and North to Erwood on
the C.N.R. should send delegates. In
addition to the pastor and superintendent, who are ex-officio delegates,
eevry school is entitled to two delei-
gates for one hundred members, or
fraction thereof, and one delegate for
each additional one hundred or fraction thereof. The names of the delegates should be forwarded to the General Superintendent as early as possible.
Members of the Provincial Board.���
We should have a full attendance of
the members of the Board at this convention. The exceedingly rapid
growth, the difficulties confronting us,
tue constantly changing conditions
and the absolute necessity for correct
information from all parts of the field
renders it necessary that every member be present at meetings of the
Railway Fares.NThe usual liberal
arrangements, granted by the railway
companies, of a single fare for the
round trip, have been secured, provided 100 delegates, who have paid railway, fares, attend the convention. In
order to secure this, however, each
delegate must obtain from the agent
who sells the ticket a certificate showing that full fare has been paid to
Portage la Prairie.
Entertainment.���The Sunday School
workers of Portage la Prairie have
guaranteed that ample and suitable
accommodation will be secured for all
delegates, and If possible at reduced
rates. No one need remain away for
fear of not finding a comfortable place
to stay^
Programme.���The most interesting
and helpful programme ever offered
to a Sunday School convention In this
country Is being prepared. It will
contain several new features. An outline of it will appear in May issue of
" A-rogress."
Rev. John Potts^DD., of Toronto,,
writing underrate" of "March 22nd, definitely promised to be with us and assist at our convention. He is well
and favorably known all over the
"United States and Canada, not only as
an effective preacher but also as a
powerful exponent of the best in present day Sunday School work., As
chairman for twelve years of the committee who has selected the lessons
for the weekly study of twenty-six
millions of people, and in other ways
closely Identified with the modern Sun!-
day School movement, will make his
addresses well worth the time and
money necesary for every pastor and
Sunday School worker to be present.
iui'B, Mary Foster Bryner. of Peoria,
Illinois, a member of the International
Staff will be with us on that occasion,
���she is one of the most popular
speakers on the Sunday School Platform. Calls for her expert services
come from almost eevry part of the
continent. The teachers of Primary,
Beginners' and Boys' Classes will be
especially helped by her addresses.
The General Superintendent heard
Mrs. Bryner deliver several addresses
while oh tho Mediterranean cruise

Paralysis is loss of power of motion.
Movement is the result of contraction of muscles. .   '
Muscles cahot contract of themselves but are entirely controlled by
the nerves.
As a result paralysis is almost always due to lack of nerve force.
Increase the nerve force in the
body by the use of Dr. Chase's Nerve
Food. Revitalise the wasted and depleted nerve cells. Restore vigor to
the weakened nervous system and paralysis must disappear.
But it is not on theory that Dr.
Cfca.-v"; Nerve Food is recommended
as a'cure and preventative for paralysis.
It has established a surprising record of cures, and the cured ones are
willing and anxious that other sufferers should know aoout it.
But do not wait for helplessness to
bvertake you before beginning treatment.
If you suffer from weakness, sleeplessness, irritability, headache, twitching of the nerves and muscles, trem
bling of limbs, loss of memory and of
power to concentrate the mind. Dr.
Chase's Nerve Food will prove of incalculable worth to you. Put it to the

Man., writes:���"In February, .1903, I
was stricken with paralysis, fell helplessly on the floor and had to be carried to bed. The doctor pronounced
it a bad case as I had no power in my
tongue and left leg. I remained in
that condition for six months without
obtaining benefit from the doctor's
prescriptions or other medicines.   -
"My husband advised me to try Dr.
Chase's Nerve Food, and by the use
of this treatment all symptoms of the
disease disappeared. I can now talk
plainly, my leg is all right and I can
do my housework. How grateful 'I am
to be cured by so wonderful a remedy,"

"I want two eggs," said he to the
waiter. "I want one fried on one side,
and the other fried on the other." The
waiter bowed obsequiously and withdrew. A little later he returned. "Beg
pardon, sir." said he, "but I am afraid
I didn't quite catch your order. Would
you mind repeating it?" "Not at all,"
said the Minnesota man solemnly.
"I want two eggs, one of them fried
on one side and the other on the
other." "Thank you, sir," said the
waiter. "I thought that was what you
said, but I wasn't quite sure, sir." Five
minutes later an apologetic waiter returned to the lawyer's elbow. "I beg

The President of one of the largest
of the many Scotch societies in this
country has a bonnle young daughter,
whose rendering of the beautiful songs
of her father's native country is particularly pleasing. Her absolute command of the dialect is ever a matter
of wonderment to her' numerous admirers when they are made aware of
the fact that she has lived all her life
in this land. A few evenings ago,
after a charming rendering of the
quaint "Logic o' Buchan" at a friend's
house, one of the most enthusiastic of
her friends exclaimed: "Say, she sings
Scotch so plain you can't understand
a word sho says."
"I wish I could find some one who
would tell me the absolute truth about
my government," said the Czar plaintively. "Your Majesty can find a num-

Once in a  burst of girlish confidence sjie had told  him how she hated young men and new  houses. It was childish of him, he told  himself, to expect her to know her own  mind.  "What can I eat?" she beamed at him  with shining eyes. "Anything, from a  nice young man to an oyster!" Here  was the opening, sooner than he expected.  "Judith," he began gravely, "it is of  the young man I wish to speak now.  Did���������did���������they say it Is young Travers?  Shall I release you?" The last, to the  ear of the girl, seemed an anxious,  frenzied appeal for freedom. So this  was what made him so gloomy, so unlike himself. He was tired of her. He  wanted to be free. She was pulling a  . rose to pieces and fitting the petals over  her finger tips. "Shall we ring the curtain down on our little comedy?" he  asked In an "it's all for the best" tone.  She nodded slowly. She was beginning  to see more clearly every minute, just  as one's eyes grow accustomed to darkness after the first bewilderment���������ho  .wanted to be free.  "Judith," he said,' "I shall ask only  one favor of you."   He hesitated.  "It is granted," she returned coldly.  "Perhaps I shu*U have the honor of  congratulating you���������also." The "also"  was added as an afterthought.  "It is that you will tell it all to me."  He hesitated through a sense of deli-  ���������^-caey-r-���������If-you-^iind,_dear,'LMjaMM_  gently, "then don't!"  Did she mind? she asked herself. No;  ���������he gloried In the opportunity. If be  sighed for his freedom, he should have  , it. She would make no effort to hold  * him, but he should understand before  she let him1 go that other men thought  her desirable. Then he could go with  his freedom, and she would marry any  one of the others. It made no difference���������she would take the one who next  asked her. She was eighteen and infinitely young. The middle aged man  opposite felt that he would barter his  Immortal soul to be twenty-four���������to be  ypung with her.  "Shall I begin at the beginning?" she  asked in weary tones.   He winced.  '"No," he replied. "That would include me. Spare me that." There was  a long silence. "It is of young Travers, your engagement"���������  "Until tonight," she reminded in a  dull voice, "I was engaged to you.  But"��������� Her voice stuck, He was  waiting for her to begin.   ,  "Mrs. Carr, from New Orleans, was  at the Springs," sho began. "She is  ono of, my mother's oldest frionds. Mr.  Travers is her nephew. It was at ono  ot hor receptions tbat I met him first.  Shall I tell you everything?" Her  volco had a new ring. He thought it  was from speaking of her lover.  "Your roses camo just as I was starting," sho continued. "I woro tbe blue  dross, tho ono yon used to llko mo in"���������  "Child," ho interrupted, "you do not  Understand"���������  "Yes, but I do," gnyly. "I remember  Jt, every bit.

It is a pretty dross. I  wore your roses to tho rocoptlon. Thoy  wero glorious ones!" Sho was leaning  on hor elbows on tho table, hor big oyos  full of mystery.  "Whon   Mrs.   Cnrr   presented   Mr.  Travers," sho proceeded, "ho told mo  that ho had beon knowing mo for a  long, long tlmo anil waiting for me  to como, bocnuso his hands wore tied,  as It woro, and ho couldn't como after J  me.

The red of the roses found brilliant  rivals in her cheeks. "Then���������then one  night," she hesitated, "it was moonlight���������down on the beach���������he kissed  me"���������  "He kissed you?" the man exclaimed.   "How dare he���������how dare you?"  "Don't "be too hard on him," sht  pleaded. "He said something about  men not despising a thief if he steal  to satisfy his soul when he is hungry."  Bob had risen angrily. A. determined  little hand pulled him back.  '���������Remember," a cold voice reminded,  "you desired me to tell you."  "Judith 1" he reproved sharply.  "And that wasn't all," and sho flashed defiant eyes at him. She remembered how Jealous he had been. Once she  laughed and asked him if he thought m&  the enamored air went sighing after  ber too. But that was when he had  really cared for her. Now be was trying to get rid of her. "I had numerous  other lovers at the Springs, Bob.  It  may be"���������she tapped a gay little tune  with ner ran���������"tnat you might nna  them diverting. There was Dave Cary"  ���������she assigned her little finger to him���������  "and Fred Langles," the next finger  to hliin, "both of whom proposed to me  at the picnic on the fourth day of July.  Then there was Mr. Greyner, who proposed to me at the dance at Judge Bir-  row's son's birthday���������the son also proposed for that matter. Dr. Spauldlng  set my wrist when I sprained it, and  when he dismissed me he asked me to  be his wife. That's all the proposals I  had at the springs. There were five  more when I stopped to visit Lucy Kil-  dare on my way home." The man  made a gesture of entreaty. Truly, he i  had not dreamed of it being this bad, !  His heart felt like a church on a week  day. How could he have ever been fool  enough to expect Judith to love him  against all these young men? |  "If you marry Travers"���������   It was a ;  cowardly subterfuge to get her away j  from the others. His voice stuck.   She  sat alert, with brilliant eyes.  "If I marry Travers, what?" she asked.  "I don't know," miserably.  "I haven't exactly decided which one  I' shall marry."  She leaned back languidly. She was pushing her hair back  aen oi uaen, witn youth that is fresh  and genuine and eternal. Yes, you art,  child!"  Oyatert- "With ot Without.

Lundqulit'i  Wonderlal  Breaking;   ol  ,   All Women'i Bacon's (or Travel,  The Dawson News tells an interesting story of a courageous woman ol  the northland:  The Hannah, one of the strangest  craft that ever made their way down  the Yukon, arrived in Dawson on  July 8, 1904, in charge of Mrs. H.  C. Lundquist, woman skipper, master, owner'and general director. The  craft is a diminutive scow, carrying  besides the master her little daughter, Elmirit, and one man, Carl Swan-  son, as a crew. The party was bound  for Rampart with the intention of  eventually landing in Tanana.

"Bob," the girl suddenly demanded,  "what's that you told me once about  love lying deep?"  Could he release her? "Tho hunger of  a man's soul" kept running through his  head. Could he do it?

She thought vaguely of  ships cut loose from their moorings.  She bated young men,  She rememborcd the first time she  ever saw bim. She was doing a skirt  dance boforo the long gilt mirror in  the back parlor. She turned to get a  sldowiso vlow of herself, and there ia  the door bo was calmly watching her.

Mrs. Lundquist is one of tha admirable, rugged specimens of womanhood of which old Scandinavia  and tho. new north of this continent  boast as a typo that does deeds of  outdoor heroism and endurance as  well as maintaining the accomplishments of life more strictly "domestic.  Last winter Mrs. Lundquist broke  all records of the world for travel  single-handed and alone by a woman  in the Arctic regions in tho dead of  winter. Sho mushed from Rampart  to Whitehorso every foot of the way  with her own team, and oftentimes  was out when it,, was 50 to 60 bolow  zero, and it was declared by tho  miners that during, some of tho time  sho was on tho trail tho thermometer was down to 70 bolow. The total  distance from Rampart to Whito-  horso is 1,450 miles. Road housoi  can bo made nightly ovor tho greater  port of this route, but on tho Ram-  part-Tanana stretch and on tho Cir-  clo-Dawson stretch thoy wero not always convenient at nightfall, and  several times tho traveler camped out  alono, slooping wrapped in hor groat  Arctic dog, robos, and with only tho  thin wall of a dimimitivo tont  strotchod between hor and the sombre, loadon sky.  At tho outset of tht trip fourteen  woro in tho party, but they scattered after a time, and as each traveler had his own dog team, and had  to manage it, virtually tho woman  was thon travoling alono. Aftor  loavlng Fairbanks mushors woro mot  by chance at times, but she did not  dolay if thorq was no on* else witb  whom to travel. At tlmos tho dense  fog caused by tho oxtromo cold mado  it impossiblo to soo ahead or tho  toams, and tho trail was bo dim tho,  woman had to tramp boforo hor dogs  and break tho way. Most of tho tlmo  it was too cold to rldo, and the  ran tho greater part of tht great  journoy by holding to tht handlebars  of tht iloigh.  On arriving at Whitehorso Mrs,  Lundquist had lost twolvo pound!  from hor weight at tho start at Ram-  part, but was in excellent spirits and  health, and could havo tumid   back  There was a flash so blinding that  Dr. Tom Howard closed his eyes and  the horse threw up his head with a  whinny of terror, then almost instantly came a crash as of a thousand cannon, which rolled across the mountains  in a reverberation of receding echqes.  After that all was as It had been before���������Inky black. ���������>,  Dr. Tom bent his face to avoid the  slant of rain, at the same tl-n^e touching the horse's flank encouragingly  with his hand. But they -c*t3r*d go no  faster, as he knew, for the horse was  picking his way down the mountain  side step by step, with nose forward  as though smelling the way and with  ears alert for sounds that might indicate their course.  Ahead were patients who might bt  needing him, to whom his coming  might be the difference between life  and death. Henceforth his life must  be his work. His patients were not to  be divided even with the girl he had  hoped to make his wife.* At first he  had thought she would reconsider, relent, but her sudden departure, without note or explanation, had meant it  was to be tbe end. He did not even  know to what part of the world she  had gone.  He had already been away from  home twenty-four hours on a journey  of forty miles into tbe mountains to  save a man who had been accidentally  shot, and now, against the advice of  hardy mountaineers, was forcing his  way back in.the very teeth of one of  the fierce hill storms.  From time to time his band wont  back to pat the horse's flank encouragingly, and at every contact of the.  hand the horse started forward a little  more briskly in an effort to please him,  only to return almost instantly, however, to the slow, cautious gait, as if  realizing that it was absolutely necessary to their safety.  Soon there came  .'another' blinding  flash  even. as  tbe  hand  once  more  dr6ppeoT~upon���������tHe~"  flank, and Dr. Tom's face blanched-a'  little, for directly in front of them was  a yawning fissure.  After that for a time be allowed the  horse to choose the way, with the reins  hanging loosely across his neck. The  horse's nose and ears and instinct were  ?</  tuiiuiif; trcea wnere tne branches almost swept him from the saddle, Dr.  Tom could only judge the course by  the lightning. In the darkness the  horse had his own way, and in the  darkness the horse persisted in choosing the one which Dr. Tom believed to  be wrong. But apparently there was  no help for it, and at last, defeated,  he allowed the reins once more to hang  loosely upon the horse's neck.  Gradually above the roaring of the  storm there had been rising another  sound���������peculiar, menacing in its persistency and suddenly intelligible. Dr.  Tom drew a quick breath, and hia  hand went to the horse's neck in caressing apology. The branch which  had been easily forded ou the way u*>  had become a raging torrent with the*  gathering of the heavy rainfall audi  was now tearing down the mountain,  unloosening rocks and uprooting trees  in its wild course. Had they stumbled  Into its 11 waters in the darkness  there wo...; have been little chance of  emerging .uhe. And the horse's altered course meant that he was picking his way toward the bridge at-the*  ferry road, the only way to get beyond,  the branch and river aud so home.  A.n nour went Dy, ilua .������ne steeper  slopes were left behind. They were*  coming to a move level country that  could be crossed with greater speed.  Dr.'Tom was mentally counting up tha  miles and the hours it would take to  traverse them when ho saw a light  twinkling just ahead. Apparently it  was a man with a lantern going.in tho  same direction and running as well as  he was able to. in the darkness. Dr.  Tom urged his horse forward.  "Hello!" he shouted cheerily as ho  drew near. "What are you doing out  in a night like this? Better go back to  your bed!"  Iu the storm's roar the voice sounded  hoarse and unuatural. The man put  his hand to his ear inquiringly and  waited for the horse to approach. Dr.  Tom could see the figure dimly by the*  lantern's light, but was himself almost  invisible.  "Goin'���������for���������a���������doctor!" the man  yelled as the horse came opposite. "My  daughter's-hurt'an' must have help at  once. Are you p'iuted toward the ferry;  bridge?"  "Yes."

And I da, despise lies���������they are most  disgusting and utterly wicked. Forgive  ma for all the horrible sins I've com-  mitted"-  Pootsteps now resound in the corridor, and the voice of Mr. Bruinm-M's  own man says blandly, "This way. ..Ir.  Chalk," as he raps gently at the door.  ���������"ana for all those I shall have to  commit!" concludes her ladyship as  ���������he springs to her feet and unfastens  tha door, admitting the tailor a la  mode.  That night, the suit of grays well  brushed, her wig recurled and her  pocket napkin richly perfumed, her  mother's brussels veil stripped "up and  made into a cravat of so ravishing a  dw-vice' as  caused  her host  almost a  r>VA^>c>gxyi  "Snip, clip, and away with you I"  spasm when he beheld It, Sir Robin  McTart sat at honor place at dinner and  was, to make a long story short, the  cynosure and toast of the occasion.  The duel with Sir Percy, the rescue  *t my Lady Diana, the invention of a  cravat, the nimble wit, the handsome  face, soon bespoke Peggy into a favor  that, considering all other things, waa  well nigh incredible, and when the  following day sho appeared In one of  the BUlts Mr. Chalk had made, with a  dash of powder on her wig and a  bronzed complexion duo to surreptitious purchase at the players' cosmetic  ���������hop in Drury lnno of sundry brown,  red and black pastes while making  feint of bolng a comedian, tho satisfaction of her host was unbounded.  "Robin, my boy," snid this ono, with  aside glance at his guest, "an you're  e bit Bhort of money I'll put a fow  hundreds to your account at my banker's:'' Young gentlemen will bo wild  and spendthrift at times. London's  ���������., now to you, I fancy, and"���������  "I thank you, Mr. Brummel, from  my heart," returned Peg, "but I'vo  ������������������������{300 now Idlo lu my pocket. That will  last mo, I'm confident, until I reach  home, ond, by your leave, Tm thinking I'll quit town tills evening."  But Mr. Bruratiiol hns no oars for  ���������ny such scheme Tlio Beau's crrntlo  fancy Iiob not boon en tight by a new  object for tho mcro sake of losing it;  his Joy In the dnsli and buoyancy, tho  originality and nnlvoto, of IiIh lutcBt  dtscovory Is genuine, nnd no argument  of the very few Lady Poggy can offer  but he breuks down nt onco.  "Zounds, Hlrl Aro you a fool, sir?  Tour sire wns not ono boforo you. To  have half London n-tiilklng about you,  til the prlntH a-chronlcllng your movements, all tho Indies n-dylng for a  gllmpBe of you, and you only up In  town theso fow dnys, and a-propoRlng  to go bnck nnd bury your talents for  tying brussels In Kent! Flo upon you,  sir! I listen to no such whims. Here's  my basket loaded with Invitations for  ym- -itrondv T.ndr Hwnkwond's rout  tonight!" with a sly glnnco at Peg's  ronlly blushing fnco.

'Buck to  Kent,' forsooth!   No, air; not yet."  A few hours Inter, ns Lndy Peggy  got Into hor iiiiij-tniH-i'iit unit <if *Tiiti!"<in  t*ntln, gold embroidered, ns ulie Mmld  ...h^r-lmngo In the glass nn-l ������������������nm-iit tin*  hilt of her sword in her hand, the blood  thnt fcUi'-ed over her face nnd tltrnnt  wns nilij* red, nnd. nt lur wit's ������������������ml*  for what to do. the elrl's tears forced  themselves to her eyes once again.  She was to bo off soon to Lady  Brookwood's. Here she should encounter not only Lady Diana, but doubtless  Percy himself; mayhap Kennaston, if  be had been able to get him a decent  coat to wear in pljco of the gray velvets. Doubtless, too, all those others  she had met in Lark lane.  For tho hundredth time she cast  wildly about in hor mind as to how she  could now at this present moment rid  herself of the hatt'd disguise, get into  her Levantine, get home to her mother's arms, hide her head forever, and  never, no, never, look into face of man  again!  But Peggy saw no road. Every path  seemed barred save those that would  forever damn her In the eyes of foes  and friends alike.  "Oh," cried she In desperation, "how  easy 'tis to get into breeches, a coat a  waistcoat and a wig; but, mercy, will I  ever be able to get out of 'em?"  It is to be put down to the credit of  my Lady Peggy's up bringing in the  country, with most times only a lad for  her playmate, that now she bore herself with not only a fine ease and grace,  but also with as splendid a swagger  and daring as any young macaroni that  carried a sword.  "An I'm to be a man, I'll be one!"  cnea sne. "Ana if L.ady Diana ogies  I'll give as good as,she sends. Little  bim as I love '11 know 'tls of his sometime Peggy he'll be jealous."  So it was with a prodigious fine flutter of her napkin and a mightily impudent twirl of her eyeglass (purchased  not two hours .since) that her ladyship  made her bows and kissed the finger  tips of Lady Brookwood's handsome  daughter.  "I am your most grateful, Sir Robin!"' cried this one, "and more pleaoed  than I can express to welcome you. I  only regret that Lord Brookwood is at  Brookwood Hall and not here to thank  you for rescuing his daughter." And so  forth and on, with presentations to  a dozen of fine ladies, dowagers and  damsels, and a precious lot of fine gentlemen, and it seemed to Peggy, in her  simplicity, as if the whole of Mayfair  were a-bowing and scraping and making her out a hero, which indeed was  i:yt far off the fact.  Two watched her as she came in on  Beau Brummel's arm. These were Sir  Percy and Kennaston���������one green with  anxiety for Grigson's return from his  ^TraMrium^iii^'TrtfBrynSoliM7"n"irv""  ing left word both at Lark lane, his  coffee house, as well as at home, where  he had gone, that Grigson should report to him at once he arrived; tbe other green with envy of Feggy and any  other who neared. his divinity, yet  afraid and too diffident to approach  her closer than with the devouring  gaze of his eyes.  "That puppy again!" cries Percy under his breath as he surveys Peg in her  satins. "By gad* sir, every lndy In the  room's turning spite eyes on t'other,  your incomparable Diana included, for  four he won't stop and pay her a compliment."  "Ah," Blghs the young poet "Percy,  an you loved like me 'twould be bllsa  to even gnze upon your fair. Think  you I dare make bold now to cross und  make my bow?"  "Why not?" returns tbe othor gloomily. "Forgive my humor, Kennaston,  Truth is, sir, I'm mnd, mart for Peg,  and my cars are cracking nnd my  brain splitting until thnt rascal Grigson gets back with answer to my letter. He's been gono long enough to  have mado tho journey four times  ovor."  "Oh, Percy," returns Teg's twin. "I  lovo you as a brother, nn' could I but  physic your lady Into'complaisance I'd  give my life for It. What owe I not to  you?" adds tho young man with deep  feeling. "You've fed mo, and, nooks,  sir, tonight you've clothed mc, for since  tho scurvy knaves that frightened  Lndy Di stolo my suit of grays ntid my  sword and hat, what had I left?  Whero would I bo now wore 't uot for  you?"  "Tush, Ken, lad; I lovo you for yourself nnd ton thousand times moro for  her siiko. Ken, I lovo her so thnt, as I  told hor, If Sir Robin were a bottor  man I'd cry off an sho said she loved  him,"  "What snid sho?"  "Not thnt sho loved lilm, but thnt she  might," ho continues with Biidness ns  his oyes follow Peg on her nlmost royal progress nbout the dm whig rooms,  " 'Tls n proper fellow enough, nnd I'd  nlwnys heard ho wus a fright and a  coward."  Koiiunston presently took benrt of  Bruce and crossed to pay bin duty to  Lndy Dlnnn, who, 'twus plnln to bo  seen by every othor thnn this bashful  A pang shot through Peg's heart  and the tears were like to force their  way. She made an excuse and left the  long drawing room, taking refuge in a  small apartment where the tables were  ready for cards. She sank into a chair  and buried her face in her hands. The  candles were not yet lighted, and she  was totally unobserved. Dashing the salt  drops from her lashes with her hand  she cried in her bitterness: "What am  I that I cannot abide to even see  him a-bendlng over her hand? Ain't  you no spirit, Peg? No pride? He's  not thinking of you, my dear. Didn't  he say plain if Sir Robin was the better man he'd give up to hlra? What  kind of a suitor is that, Peg? Lud!  I'd not give him up to any one, whether  they were my betters or no!"  Could my lady but have postponed  her exit for a few brief moments she  would have beheld Sir Percy, at a word  In his ear from the footman, quit Lady  Diana's side with but the smallest ceremony, dash out Into the vestibule, seize  with a viselike grip the man who stood  there pale and trembling and gasp out:  "At last!   The letter, tbe letter?"  Grigson shook his head and got even  whiter.  "No letter?" Percy says in a dazed  way.  "Only your own, Sir Percy." handing  back the missive. "Her ladyship was  from home, sir."  "Well, what of that? You Infernal  rascal, did I not command you seek  her, if 'twere at the other end of the  world?"  "Aye, sir, and the quickest way of  settin' about findin' her, ladyship was  for me to get back to town, sir, as fast  as the cursed beast I was cheated into  hirin', sir, would fetch me."  "Speak out! Is her ladyship up in  London?" asked Sir Percy, actually  shaking with impatience and astonish-  uient  ungson noas ana witnout more auo  proceeds to give an exact if somewhat  rambling account of* his entire experiences from the moment he had quitted  his master until the present.  'Twere idle to attempt to describe  Sir Percy's state of mind. Up to uow  there had ever lingered in his heart the  hope���������nay, one of those unconscious beliefs men have���������that in the end Peggy  would be his. This news that Grigson  brought crushed every such thought  from his brain, but put in its place  ���������S.uch_a_.hati"ed.-of.Jhe_vo.ung_man._naw-  de Bohun, and, having had either the  good or the ill fortune to unintentionally overhear your remarks concerning  Lady Peggy Burgoyne, I feel it my  duty and pleasure alike to defend her  from the unjust and unworthy attack  which you, sir, have just been pleased  to make."  "Sir Robin McTart!" exclaims Percy,  with a start and in a prodigious anger. "I deny your charges, sir, and  would remind you that eavesdroppers  are ever the cumberers of dangerous  ground."  "Sir." responds Lady Peggy, her temper rising the more at the sense of the  tasting the sweets of hero worship (in  little) in the adjoining room as caused  his fingers to itch for his steel and  t'other's flesh to meet once more, and  to the death.  He. drew Grigson in from the vestibule and, unobserved in the crush,  down the corridor to the darkness of  the enrd room, where Peggy still sat  disconsolate in her faroff corner.  She for the moment ls even unconscious tbnt nny one hns entered until  the voices arrest her attention.  "By gad!" Sir Percy cries* in a low  tone, falling Into a sent and clapping  his brow. "Up in London! The woman, vowing Sir Robin had crossed your  entrance, inquiring for her ladyship!  Your mooting not Sir Robin, but nn ill  conditioned llttlo popinjay with squint  eyes nnd of the height of tho dwarf  that waits upon my Lndy Brookwood?"  "Aye, Sir Percy," returns Grigson.  ������������������No more like Sir Robin, whlcli, sir,  begging your honor's pnrding, Is a very  pretty young nobleman, with a good  eye nnd n proper height."  Sir Percy nods.  "Then," speaking as If to himself and  motioning the mnn nwny, "slnco she's  up in town without her parents' knowledge and with a cock and bull story  stuck Into her Abigail's'mouth, It must  be sho's doped with tho scoundrel out  of Kent!"  Grigson, going, ventures to ask: "Any  more borders, Sir Percy? Will I cover  the town, all tho luns and taverns,  sir?"  Tho young mnn shnkes his head, and  tho servant bows himself away.  A  Her color came and went as Ken  niiHtoii, blushing to match his lady,  ventured to fipout his odu to her, and.  leaving tlio pnlr to gallop on this pleasant path, Sir Percy nt n dlstnnco unconsciously followed Lndy Peggy, nt  It'iiHt with his gnze,  Peggy iiii'-tiitinit', denying right and  left tho Mory of hor prowess, with  tjtilpM -.ml jt ..'.,* it ml i. ���������'.-..-. uf \Ue f.dv,  still kept hor eye on Percy,    Not yot  illlll   fillO   MTU   lum   ii|>|,n.;irll   I,inly    i>|-  nnn. Yet hold! Kvon now, catching her  tiu-tj giue fixed iijim. him, he turned  nnd was pro-unit ly liemlltig over tho  little beautv'j flmror*  CHAPTER VIII.  this precise moment Lndy Peggy, scarce ablo to contain  liorsplf longor and rookloss of  every possible consoquonco,  being about to cost horsolf upon hor  quondam lover's protection and to bo  rid forcvor of being n mnn, Is stopped  short of her purposo by the words thnt  now full slowly from tho young mail's  lips.  "To docolvo, to Ho, to sohomo nnd  plot and bring shame and troublo upon  hor fathor and mother! Gild's lifo!"  Sir Percy brings his clinched hnnd  down -frith a thump upon tho card  table. "I had novor believed tlmt of  Poir-rv! I'd hnvo tolled htm thnt hnd  hinted she could ovnn plnn a lie or nm  swum, xvxx* by no mentis Uio iiiUulor^ 0ff to a secret marriage with tbo best  out to him sho would felgu play off." ^nn tun*; nvog('������  ������'vAt whlcli speech my  lady's color  burned as never before slnco sho wns  t.nrrt, nnd tier eltnlor moo nt thr������ tlnnhln  charge, both tho ono that was truo ns  to hor deceit and tho ono that was not  as to hor secret nuptials.  Palpitating with rage and wotmdod  sensibility, with romarso and wretchedness, brought to bay with a situation  sho could not endure, Peg now utterly  forgot hor brooches or her shnnio nt  these, nnd, Mopping boldly forth Into  tho small circle of light shed In nt the  d-onviiy from the candle* In tho corridor, she saluted Sir Percy and spoko:  "A bid vou good cvoulna". Bir Percy  "Tell me, or I'll bruin you where you  standi"  Injustice and falseness of her whole  tenure, "you coupled just now tho name  of a lady with that of Sir Robin McTart. I demand how you dare to assume such a responsibility, sir, until  at least either the lady in question or  I gives you our confidence or our  leave."  " 'Our,' forsooth; 'our!' " comes fiercely from between Sir Percy's clinched  teeth, while his hand files to his sword  hilt.  "Why the devil, sir���������an you've been  so lucky as win the lady for yonr bride  ���������make off with her i' the dark, shut  her up lu some unfindable hole, cheat  her. parents, and go strutting like some  vain peacock up and~~down~other Indies' drawing rooms?   Be a man, sir,  and publish your triumph broadcast;  nor let the town presently go gossiping  and countryside wagging witb the  scandal of an elopement! Zounds! Sir  Robin McTart, that''���������flipping a stray  curd from the table almost in her lady;  ship's face���������"for your gallantly and  yo**r honor!"  "What do you mean, sir?" cries Peggy, struck with horror all n-heap and  with terror as well, yet keeping up a  brave show with her drawn rapier and  sparkling oyes.  "Whatever you please, sir," returns  Percy, now white heat, too, and most  reckless of tlmo or place.  "I've too much regard for Lndy Poggy, sir, not to postpone the climax of  this matter until our next meeting.  Let It bo when you soo fit!" cries Peg,  with woman's wit nnd wisdom too.  " 'Slife, sir, I nsk you as ono gentleman to another���������nny, I Implore It of  you," cries Sir Percy, rent betwixt  cholor, lovo nnd apprehension, "most  humbly���������Is Lndy Peggy your wlfo?"  Her ladyship was now llko to laugh,  so near nkln aro mirth and sorrow, but  sho replied very loftily:  "I decline to discuss tho mnttor, sir,  and would remind you that report hath  your attentions engaged In quito another direction."  "You know whero Lady Peggy Bur*  goyno ls at this moment?" says Sir  Percy hotly, dotoruilnod to push his  matter to Its ending this very night,  and nlmost crazed by his passion and  Its bnlklng.  "That I do, sir," returns her ladyship, with a covert smllo,  "Toll mo, or I'll brain you whoro yoa  stand!" Torcy iimltes an ugly lungo at  bis opponent with his (1st, but merely  ns a threat.  "That will I not," snys sho firmly.  What might hnvo further ensued ii  Bt this crisis put out of tho question  by tho entrunco of Keiinnston, who,  espying Porcy tho first, cries out Joyfully:  "Porcy, Porcy, Lndy Dlnnn hnth given  mo loavo to toll you sho consents"���������  "Tush, sir!" interrupts Porcy, jorklng  his bond townrd tho other occupant of  tho room.

"Frowse, the charwoman's daughter,  vowed she'd found it a-lying in the  entry under the water tub. There's aa  end of your dispute, sirs, I trust"  glancing from one to the other. "Come,  come. Sir Percy, and you, Sir Robin,  whom indeed the letter your brought  me from Lady Peggy the other night  doth most highly commend to my good  offices, must be friends," taking a  hand of each. "Nor let Dame Rumor  split ye asunder with her lies about my  little twin's being up in town. Gad-  zooks, sirs, the child's not a notion of  a difference betwixt Mayfair and���������  Drury lane!

"Cards, cards! Spades, clubs, diamonds, hearts!" exclaims the Beau,  touching the queen of hearts with the  toe of his high heeled shoe as it lies on  the floor where it was shot from Sir,  Percy's hand.  "Split me, but 'tis them that are at  the bottom of every quarrel, sirs!  Whisk me, but if a spade or a club or  a heart, provided it be a lady's, or a  diamond, ain't the.only causes for disagreement in this world!"  "Correct as your own toilet, sirl" cries  Wyatt.  "Now, 'twas hearts of course, and  the queen of 'em, that's roused both  your tempers, but, zounds, gentlemen,"  taking now the hand of each, which  had slipped clear of Kennaston's fingers, "bethink you, if the lady, whoso  name I cau't even guess, whom you  both adore, stood here, what would  her pleasure be? Robin, my lad, answer me, for of brawling there can be  none here and fighting no more. Speak,  sir!"  "Faith," answered Lady Peggy, with  splendid valor and a rise in her color  nnd her heels, "to my certain knowledge the lady 'd have her name put out  of the matter wholly, and she'd soonor,  die, sir, than have any fighting over  ,heE_prefanences_by-either-Sir~PerGy-d.d,  Bohun or Sir Robin McTart."  The which being taken to be, by all  present, a most prodigious itnd amazing  gentlemanlike and politic speech, Sir  Percy was feign accept, mock-smile  nnd bow. while all the rest blew thoir  lungs hollow applauding nnd prnlsing  his still hated and still suspected rival.  Peace restored outwardly, whatever  else raged In the breasts of the two opponents, the gallants sat to their tables,  Kennaston managing to whisper to Sit  Percy across the deal:  "As I was telling you when I entered,  Percy, Lady Di permits mo to let you  know sho consents to my dedicating  the ode to her. nntl Mile, at the corner  or Beauford Buildings m the Strand,  hath engaged to publish It at once."

V  CUMBERLAND, B. C.  WESTERN CANADIAN EDITORS.  A Series of Articles Describing their Lives, their Alms  and their Influence.  30.  A. STEWART.  'Xai*>i<a:'i<ai*'x*W'iaX'X<aia>i'iaia>  among his fellowworkers. Mr. Stewart is the emsodiment of quiet  strength and modest ability. He has  a judicial temperament which prevents  him from taking any step without mature consideration, and saves him from  the errors into which more impetuous  natures Inevitably fall. For the same  reason he seldom has occasion to modify any position once taken. It is thus  no wonder that the personal and editorial opinions are treated with the  greatest respect by all who know  either him or his paper.  And it is undeniable that both the  Advocate and its editor have opinions,  and strong ones. Neither the paper  nor its editor are' spineless wobblers.  But neither is offensive or dictatorial  In the advocacy of the views professed.  Both recognize that there is something  to be said on the other side, and treat  those who differ with them with the  respect due to intelligent opponents.  In their moderation is the secret of  the influence of both. Blind, unreasoning partyism has no supporter in  Mr. Stewart. He always appeals, not  to party allegiance or great party personages, but to sound and inteliible  principles. He uses no rhetorical exaggerations, no catch phrases that obscure while pretending to enlighten.  Two young lawyers from adjoining  districts had been trying to make repu(i  tations as orators. When a certain  one of them spoke for three hours  against a certain bill the other young  man took the floor for another lengthy  ebullition in favor of the measure. In  his peroration he said he was sorry to  find his brother on the wrong side,  for there was every reason why they  should agree. "We were raised together, we studied together, we played  together, we were born in the same  yar���������yesi even on the same day."  "Did I understand you to say that you  were bom on the same day?" interrogated a member from Philadelphia  "Yes," came the prompt reply. "On  the very same day?" "Yes, sir."  "Then it must have been a very windy  day."  ������*  99  II  19  ���������  A. STEWART.  Editor and  Proprietor of the Prince  Albert Advocate.  Many men engaged in newspaper  work in the Canadian West have a  larger circle of acquaintances, but few  have warmer friends than Mr. Andrew  Stewart, the editor and proprietor of  the Prince Albert Advocate. On a  casual knowledge, this may seem somewhat strange. At first glance Mr.  Stewart does not impress one as a particularly attractive personality. He  Is a better listener than talker., He  "nWeT^tfOT������s~KiB-viewsr���������There-is  nothing histrionic or spectacular about  him���������nothing that would appeal to the  ordinary observer as remarkably keen  or brilliant. He is not reserved- or  taciturn but he certainly displays to  a less degree than the average western  newspaper man that hail-fellow-well-  met camaraderie, that exuberant good  fellowship which in its heartiness Is  apt to be undlstinguishing in its friendliness, that characterizes the generality of western newspaper men. Mr.  Stewart lacks that Bohemian buoyancy  which is the hall-mark of many of his  fellowworkers. He abjures the "wild  and woolly westerners." He is sound  and sane, thoughtful and earnest. In  the northernmost frontier town of the  prairie section of the Dominion he has  stood for professional ideals that are  conservatively progressive. To pick  up a copy of the Advocate���������not merely  now, when Prince Albert is one of the  most important cities of the West, but  for years past, when it was popularly  regarded as hanging on to the outside  edge of civilization���������none would ever  think, either by its makeup, by its editorial opinions, or by its news columns  that It was published in a town that  was the farthest Canadian limit of  agricultural effort. Indeed, If the imprint was not noticed, the general Impression would be that the Advocate  was a typical representative ot that  class of capable journals publshed in  an old established, populous and prosperous community.  In this respect the Advocate Is merely the ro flection of Its owner. The  Ilnost qualities of older civilizations  havo in tho person of Mr. Stewart boen  transplanted to tho new conditions of  plonoor journalism, Without losing  ono whit-of the endowment he brought  with him, ho has adapted thoso qualities to tho environment ot tho West,  and with such conspicuous success  that It has  passed  Into  a proverb  You know the medicine that  makes pure, rich blood���������  Ayer's SarsiparflU.

One may  differ with Mr. Stewart's conclusions,  but none can deny him the respect  due a thoughtful, moderate and logical  thinker.  Mr. ��������� Stewart, like many another  Western editor, is a graduate of the  case. Few printers in Canada have  had a more thorough or more varied  training. He is an Irishman by birth,  having been born in County Down  ,some_thirtyj;ft*m_ymr^^^  to Canada with his parents in the year  of the great western boom, in 1882*  The family located at Emerson, which  at that time was a typical boom town,  two daily papers being published there.  In one of these offices young Stewart  went as errand boy. and. devil. .After  a short time he removed to Brandon,  still in the same useful and lowly capacity. A year or two later he came  to Winnipeg, working here a summer,  and then, desiring to see somewhat  moi-e of the world, and to secure a  wider knowledge of the business,  moved to St. Paul, where another year  was spent In various offices. Another  year was, spent lh New York, principally in the employ of Bradstreet's.  But the call of the West came to the  young printer again, and he came back  to Manitoba with a determination to  farm. The life of a pioneer on a homestead, however, proved uncongenial.  ;The smell of printers' ink called him  to the newspaper office as irresistibly  as that of the sea does the sailor to  his ship. Mr. Stewart struck out for  the Western States working in the  principal offices in Helena, Anaconda,  Spokane, Tacoma, Seattle, and the  State, printing office at Olyrapla. In  these he gained Invaluable experience  In every branch of th printing and publishing business.  It will thus be seen that few printers  In the Canadian West have had a moro  complete mechanical training and experience than Mr. Stewart,  Mr. Stewart wont to Prince Albert  In 1894 to take charge of ho newly organized paper and after a few  months was so satisfied with its  prospects that ho decided to purchase he business, which he has  conducted ovor slnco. From a vory  modest beginning it has grown till it  ls now an eight page, all homo print  papor, taking natural rauk as one of  tho four or flvo host papers In tho Territories.

Typographically, editorially  mid roportorlolly, tho Advocate Is a  paper of which any placo might well  bo proud, In this respoct tho city on  tho Saskatchewan has much for which  to thank Mr, Stewart, who, with unflagging energy, enterprise and wisdom,  has helped It grow from an outpost  trading village to Its present Btatus,  u'iti whoHo vilone lu tho iiuiuti will  not bo ihe least of thc factors to Its  continued progress.
