IS    RICH,    RED    BLOOD���������DR.   WILLIAMS'  PINK   PILLS   MAKE  NEW BLOOD.  Good blood���������rich, red blood���������is the  only cure for such complaints as anaemia, decline, heart, palpitation, skin  eruptions, rheumatism, kidney troubles and a host of other every-day ailments. Good blood makes you less  liable to disease of every kind, because  It strengthens and stimulates every  organ in th body to throw off any ailment that may attack it. Good blood  Is the secret of life, and the secret of  good, rich, red blood is Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills for Pale People. These  little blood-building pills have saved  lives that doctors and nurses have dis-  palred of. They have cured thousands  of others���������they will cure you too. Mrs.  Wm. Boothe, Montrose, Ont., says:  "For,a couple of years my daughter  Meta was in failing health. She complained of headaches and distressing  weakness, and seemed to be rapidly  going into decline. We consulted several doctors, but they did not help her.  She was apparently bloodless, and we  were afraid she would not recover.  She had no appetite and was greatly  reduced in flesh. At this stage a  friend advised me to give her Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills, and.in a few  weeks we noticed some improvement  In her condition, and that her appetite was improving, We continued  the treatment for a couple of months  longer, and by that time, she was  again In he best of health. She had  gained thirty-two pounds in weight,  had a good color, and was in the best  ���������of spirits. I do not think I am putting  it too strongly when I say I think Dr.  .Williams' Pink Pills saved her life."  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills do only one  tlaing, but they do that well. They do  not act upon the bowels; they do not  bother with mere symptoms. They  actually make the new, rich red blood  that goes right to the root of the disease and drives it from the system.  But you must get the genuine with the  lull name "Dr. Williams: Pink Pills  for Pale People," printed ������h the wrapper around every box. All medicine  dealers keep these pills or you can  get them by mail at 50 cents a box or  ���������six.boxes for ?2.50 by writing The Dr.  ^\vj"Hittms' Medicine Co., Brockville,  Out.     " " ?~ '���������  Col. John T. Mosley, a famous Confederate scout in the civil war, now an  efficient special agent of tne Department of Justice, said one day in Washington, apropos of success: "The  other morning I met Blank, hurrying  along in his brisk, energetic way, the  hopeful light still shining from his  eyes, and the confident smile still playing about his firm mouth. "My heart  ���������went out in pity to Blank. He was a  hard worker, very hard worker, yet In  everything he undertook he failed.  Three times In the last ten years Blank  had faild in business. "So I stopped  tho poor fellow, and shook him by the  hand. "Blank, said I, it ls too bad.  With all your push you don't seem to  succeed." "I don't, eh? Blank replied,  Haven't, I made a success of my several failures?" "And he hurried off to  mako, as he informed me, another fat  deposit In his wife's name."

Doings  KIDLJNEY  V PILLS  ,r**'l\v  Over 12,000   Women in   Quebec With  More Than Twelve Children���������Rewarded by the State.  There are not less than twelve thousand heads of French-Canadian families in the Province of Quebec who!  have a family of twelve children or  more, and entitled to a gift of one hundred acres of land from the Provincial  Government.  The French-Canadian farmers, or  habitants as th*;y are generally called,  are a very prolific race, but when the  Jaw was passed In the Legislature in  1890, by the late Hon. H. Mercler, in  order to create a new popularity for  himself and his Government, he never  for a moment calculated that the number of parents was so great, or it ls  questionable if he would have entertained the idea of passing a measure  that is now looked upon with much concern by his living successors in office.  The law providing one hundred acres  of Crown lands deeded to every parent  who can prove tha.t he or she has twelve  legitimate living children is now proving an incubus to the Parent Government, on account of the thousands who  are applying for the right, and the  thousands yet to be satisfied in this respect. The French-Canadian farmers  marry young, and as they are a strong,  healthy race of people, the percentage  of families with twelve children in their  parents' train is indeed very large. The  fathers of these interesting families  were .not long in discovering this established right to a lot of land, and as they  invariably choose the land they are entitled to in the vicinity of their own  homes, from timber preserves purchased by lumber merchants for the  wood thereon.and which they are bound  to relinquish by the terms of their purchase when the land is claimed for settlement, notwithstanding that the limit-  holder has paid the price of his purchase to the Government, the latter naturally are very much exercised over  the law.  The fathers of twelve children, in the  meantime, who have come forward during the past fourteen years, to claim  the one hundred acres have become so  numerous that up to June 1904, no less  than 3,400 received their claim, and  since then another thousand have applied, and every month brings in from  one to two hundred applicants to have  their claims investigated by the officials  of the Crown Lands Department. The  tax on the limit-holders who are called  upon^to give up land from their timber  limits has become s6~~gfeat~that-they-  are in a quandary how to protect their  Interests, especially as the claimant has  the right to choose his one hundred  acres wherever he wishes to, from Government limits under lease for the  wood they contain, by the limit-seller.  Tho applications became so numerous  last year that the lumber merchants  were seized with serious alarm, and  waited in a body on the Government to  protect them.  Premier Parent, who Is Administrator of the Crown Lands Department,  gave the question his study and In a  desire to protect tho Interests of both  parties, last session amended the law,  which now allows the heads of families to choose between accepting $50  in cash In lieu of the ono hundred acres  of land they are entitled to, the money  to be found by tho limit-holder, and  in return the Government guarantees  the latter that the same lot of land ls  debarred from settlement for a term of  flfteon years. Tho Government and the  limit-holders were convinced that this  new arrangement would In a large  measure end the voxatlous difficulty,  but thoy soon learned that they had  only created a new domand from an another unthought-of direction.  Previous to the amondmont of the  law there existed a large number of  heads of families,who had twelve living children, who would not take the  troublo to claim tho one hundred acres,  but just as soon as they heard that  they could obtain $60 in cash Instead,  thoy lost no time In coming forward  with their claim. Tho result Is, the  Government Is now overwhelmed with  parents of twelve or moro children, who  domand tho favor they aro entitled to.  Mr, A. Dumals, the Crown Lands Department official, who has charge of  tho Investigation and aottloment of  thoso claims, states that besides tho  land allotted to 3,400 claimants up to  June last, ho has paid tho sum of $34,-  000 to others who havo accepted tlio  $50 tn placo of tho land, and will re*  qutro another $100,000 to pay off the  balance boforo tho situation Is eased.  This monoy, he said, Is collected from  tho limit-holders, who In return retain  thoir limits against sottlemont for fifteen years. Mr. Dumals Is also tho  authority for tho statement that thoro  aro not lent than twelvo thousand families la tho Province ot Quebec comprising twelve and moro children In  each family circle. mmmm  niatorta Baby Dottier-.

GOING TO A FIRE IN CHINA.  "I was in Peking," said an American  tourist, "when a fire,broke out very  near the house in .which I was lodging and, at the first alarm, I rushed  out and into the burning structure to  see what could be saved. I was at  ouce arrested, and later on discovered  the Chinese way of fighting fire. A  policeman first repuired an affidavit of  the head of the household to the effect  that he did not deliberately set the  blaze, and for this purpose took him  before an official half a mile away. A  second was stationed to see that no  one removed any furniture until the  papers had been made out. After a  lapse of forty minutes the firemen arrived. They looked at the burning  house and decided that It was on fire.  After much argument it was further  agreed that it would be a waste of water to try to put out the flames. Two  members, who ereced a ladder and  climed part way up, were duly reproved for too much zeal, and, after the  name, age and habits of the owner had  been taken, the fire department retired  in good order. As the flames were unhindered, the house burned to the  ground, and when the owner returned  he was beaten by his neighbors for endangering their property. I was held  in durance vile for two hours and then  lined forty cents."  CURE THE MOST  EXTREME CASES.  STONE IN THE KIDNEYS CANNOT  STAND BEFORE DODD'8 KID-  NEY PILLS.  Mr. S. A. Cassldy, of Ottawa, Permanently Cured After Years of Suffering  by the Great Canadian Kidney Remedy.  Ottawa, Ont, May 22.-��������� (Special���������  Wnile all Canada knows that Dodd's  Kidney Pills are the standard **emedy  for all Kidney Complaints, It may surprise some people to know they cure  such extreme cases as Stone in the  Kidneys. Yet that is what they hsva  done right here tn Ottawa.  Mr. S. A. Cassldy, the man cured, is  the well known proprietor of the Bijou  Hotel on Metcalf street, and in .an In-  MiM������wjii|jagsj "My friends all know  tha������t I ha*ve been a martyr t5"Stone~!n"  the Kidneys for years. They know  that besides consulting the best of  doctors in the city and trying every  medicine I could think of, I was unable to get better.  "Some time ago a. friend told me  Dodd's Kidney Pills would cure roe.  As a last resort I tried them, and they  have cured me.  "I could not Imagine more severe  suffering than one endures who has  Stone In the Kidneys, and I feel the  gratest gratitude to Dodd's Kidney  Pills."  If the disease is of the Ktdheyi or  fro*n the Kidneys, Dodd's Kdney mil  will cuve it.  AWAKEN THE LIVER   *  And You Remove the Cause of Indigestion.  Biliousness and Constipation.  DR. CHASE'S KIDNEY-LIVER PILLS.  <;1  *"* I  The liver, when In health, filters bile  from the blood, where It is poison, and  pours It into the intestines where It is  necessary to digestion and   a   proper  working of the bowels.  Once the liver becomes torpid and  sluggish in action the "bile poison" is  left in the blood, where It causes biliousness, Jaundice, Indigestion and  headache.  Tbe tongue ls coated.  The breath bad. $  The stomach sour. ;*;  The complexion muddy.  The bowels irregular.  The kidneys clogged.  Besides the pains and aches consequent on the poisoned condition of the  system, there is the greatest danger  from such diseases as Bright's disease  and appendicitus.  Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills thoroughly cleanse the kidneys, liver and  bowels, and by their direct action on  the liver cause a healthful flow of new  bile to aid digestion and ensure the na.  tural and healthful action of the bowels.  There is no means known by which  Indigestion, biliousness and constipa-  tion can be so promptly and thoroughly cured as by Dr. Chase's Kldney-Llv.  er Pills.  Miss Julie Langlols, Manor, Assa.,  writes:���������-"For a long time I suffered  from liver complaint and biliousness  and could flnid nothing to help me un-  til I used Dr.- Chase's Kidney-Liver  Pills. I have recommended these pills  to many of my friends and they have  all been well satisfied with the results  You can use this letter for the benefit  of women who are suffering as I did."

Chase, the famous receipt book  author, are on every box.  President William J. Tucker of Dartmouth College tells the following story  on himself: Some years ago he passed  several weeks in a Maine country  town. The next season he received a.  letter from his boarding mistress asking him to return. "In reply he stated  he should be glad to pass another summer vacation with her, but should require some changes. "First," said the  college president, "your maid is, persona non grata. Secondly, I think the  sanitary conditions would be improved  about your house if the pigsty could  be moved a little farther from the  house." President Tucker was reassured when he received the following  in reply: "Mary has went. We hain't  had no hogs since you were here last  summer.   Be sure and come."  The Canadian Pacific Railway Company are running low rate excursions  from all points in Ontario, Manitoba  and the Territories West of Port Arl  thur, to all points In the Okanagan  Valley, B.C. The tickets will be on  sale June 7th and l������ui and good to return within thirty days which will  give the farmers and business people  of tho Northwest an opportunity of  seeing the fruit orchards of British  Columbia.  While tho session of farmers -was  under way at New Hope, Ark,, a maid  with musical talents in tho bud opened  up a piano across tho way and began  that process known ns cultivating tho  volco. "For goodness sake," exclaimed General Crowloy, "what nolso is  that'" "Gently, General," oxplalnod  Will Burton of Caddo township, who  had just boon elected one of tho delegates. "That nolso is from a young  lady who Is having hor volco cultivated." "Cultivated, huh," said tho Gen-  oral; "thon it is evident tho procoss  of cultivation has reached tho harrowing stage."

She had been brought up so irreproachably that her prudence passed Into a  proverb among her friends.  Peggy walked circumspectly through  a careless world. So correct was she  that her mere presence was the stamp  of propriety, and had she been a little  older she could have sidetracked all the  young matrons as chaperons. Peggy  represented the phenomenon of an old  head on young shoulders. She looked  ahead and was never taken at a disadvantage,  Old maids' children are proverbially  flawless. Her aunt expected Peggy to  love with discrimination and marry  wisely, a fitting crown to so exemplary  a girlhood, but the appearance of  James   Dunbar  proved   a  stumbling  "BEA.D,"  SUGGESTED   HEB   IiOVEB  AS HE  HELD THE COPY BEFORE HEB.  block.

"Which you can't spend until you  earn. No, Jim, I'm not extravagant,  but how could we live and save for a  rainy day?"  "Not much to save at first. Surely  you care for me, Peggy? Why, I worship you, so nothing else matters. I  won't let you want, and we can wait  for luxuries."  Peggy shook her head. Tho struggle  was so great sho dared not trust her  voice.  "Well, be engaged���������promise to wait  forme."  "Oh, Jim, you tear at my"���������  "Your prudence." Dunbar's voice  grew a llttlo hard.

As  she bought her ticket the agent inquired whether she wished Cheltmore in  Pennsylvania or New York.  "Pennsylvania," said Peggy.  It seemed more expensive and a  longer trip than she had anticipated,  but It was not until late In the afternoon that she suspected a mistake.  The conductor informed her that the  train was due at 7. Peggy remembered  Stella's writing that ir sue took tne a  o'clock train she would arrive In ample  time for dinner.  The train had pulled out at 3:15, and  Peggy had charged the discrepancy to  her watch. Now she grew anxious.  Her preparations had not been made  with her usual forethought. She had  cared only for the fact that she was  going to Cheltmore and that Jim was  there.  On reaching her destination the worst  was soon known." There was no such  address as Stella had given, and the directory proved that she did not reside  in Cheltmore. Pa. Peggy, a little frightened, retracea ner steps to tne station  to inquire for the next train for Philadelphia. The first person she ran Into  was Dunbar.  "Peggy-why, Peggy!"  Then, remembering their difference,  he thrust his hands into his pockets and  turned silent.  "Jim���������I���������I've done a stupid thing.  ���������I've come to the wrong Cheltmore."  Peggy sank crestfallen into the nearest  seat and strove to force back her tears.  Dunbar's heart softened. "Explain,  dear."  "I'm to. visit Stella at Cheltmore. I���������  I thought there was only one. When is  tbe next train back?"  "To Philadelphia?" inquired Dunbar  slowly.  "Of course. How soon?"  He evaded the question.  "Peggy, is cold reason so satisfactory? Didn't you miss me just a little?"  "Oh, Jim, but the train. It will be so  late. What will aunt say?"   ....  "I'll satisfy all questions If you answer one of mine. Do you love me  enough to share my struggles?" "  Peggy tried to take her eyes from  hj*j?i_hut he held her with the strength  of love that shone in his.   She smiled"  a little mistily.   "It's not wisdom perhaps, but"���������  "You trust me absolutely?" demanded  Dunbar.  "For all time," murmured Peggy.  "Then come, dear!" I-Ie hurried her  to the telegraph office, which was empty, and began rapidly ticking off a message. Then he scrawled a few words  on a blank form.  "Sweetheart, prepare to be brave.  Your reputation for prudence is shattered beyond repair. But as it brought  you to me I have no complaint. There  is no train to Philadelphia before noon  tomorrow."  "No train"- she faltered.  "I hated to tell you. That's why I  secured your promiso first. I'll take  you now to a friend of mine, Mrs.  Davis. She's a monument of propriety."  "What will Aunt Margaret say?" repeated Teggy dismally.  "I'm not sure, but she rather likes  me," snid Dunbar, smiling. "Anyhow,  wo shall know when we get her answer to my telegram."

The questions raised by the growing  inability of the modern mother to  nurse her own children were discussed  at a conference held the other day at  the Sanitary Institute, London. They  are causing disiinct alarm among medical men and sociologists, for it is considered that such inability as this must  have a profound effect upon the future  of town dwelling humanity.  Prof. Bunge, of Basel, in the course  of exhaustive inquiries into the subject, came to the conclusion that ths  diminution In the function of naturally feeding children was increasing  throughout civilized Europe. Thc difficulty at present is to find a cause and  a cure. An eminent doctor who not  only is connected with ooe of London's  greatest hospitals but is much sought  after as a consultant said:  "My experience seems to point to the  fact that, however a mother may be  fed, her own nourishment has no effect upon her power of nursing her children.  "During the siege of Paris women  who were in a state of semi-starvation  were able properly to nurse their babies, and again the tall, healthy, athletic modern matron of ths better  class is markedly failing in her powers in this direction. One might almost  trace a connection between the improved physique of the modem woman  and the diminution in this important  function, but statistics to prove this  never have been compiled. My own  Impression is the cause is deeper and  more subtle. It may be nature's protest against the unnatural town life,  or it may be connected with the decreasing birth rate and prove, that  England being fully populated, nature  wishes by these means to prevent overcrowding., The most alarming aspect  of the sltaution ls the fact that breast  fed children undoubtedly have the best  chance of surviving. They escape the  many dangers that the artificially fed  infant Is-subjected to, and when the  mother's milk is suitable usually are  healthier.  "I have noticed that Jewish women  in the east end not only have large  families but are, as a race, perfectly  capable of nursing their children. Again,  the explanation is difficult unless it  lies in the elaborate and scientifically  sound hygienic code of that race. Tho  Irish peasant women, too, as a body  are able to nurse their children, and  they also have large families. They  lead a more natural and less sophisticated life than the town,women, and  _this_also_pj*i'nts to the city dwcllin������r_as  a factor in the mischief."

Never before have there been for rem  so many mansions of the great nobility  In London, and magnificent old country  places in the Provinces, Life nowadays  in the United Kingdom Is so frightfully expensive, with all the numerous  calls of one, kind and another on the  purse, that the old aristocracy finds it  almost impossible to keep their'various  country places up/ There ls an authentic Instance of an English duko with a  large nominal Income���������a qaurter of a  million dollars a year���������who actually offered to let his immense and historic  country seat in the midlands, not merely rent free but likewise to pay his tenant $50,000 a year, provided tho lessee  would undertake to keep the place up  properly and in thorough repair.

Time saving is one of the most important considerations iu all surgery.  Any major operation lasting more thaa  an hour aud a half entails an additional risk. In operations of long duration the chances of recovery are comparatively small. This is due to shock,  to the cumulative effect of the aa-  aesthetic, to loss of blood and to lowering of the patient's temperature by the ���������  exposure of internal areas to the air.  Because of this the best surgeons work  with a mechanical precision and economy of movement. Everything is ready,  before the operation commences; an assistant is at band to look after the details ot actual work, such as hoJdlaj**  back the edges of tlie Incision, adju***- ���������  ing the ligatures, etc.; an expert In a***-'  aesthe3ia handles the chloroform and".1  watches the subject's pulse and respK  ration In order that the operator's time'  may be devoted wholly to one point,  and a deft' nurse, adept in the use oft  every instrument, needle and chemical  preparation, Is at the surgeon's elbow,  ready to hand out at a word���������sometimes before the word���������the shining implements already filed In the order oi.  their probable use.

They were  unknown to lilm, and, perceiving now  their estate, he formed the conclusion  that a couple of footpads had nearly  made an end of him, and walked away.  But of his rescue? Tho manner of It?  The mysterious flight of his preserver?  The boat ready at the pier's end? Tho  twin shots just in the nick of time?  .What of all this?  ��������� Percy was feign return to his uncle's  house, thrice puzzled now, since ho  had not alone Lady Teggy's oblivion to  unravel, but the miraculous saving of  his own life to match It.  Her ladyship, once safe in the boat,  'pulled hard to the upper' pier, paid the  boatman and back by devious ways to  Peter's Court and into her room, shut  door and latched, down on her knees,  wig thrown on the hearth, a-thanking  God Percy was safe.  Tears? A shower of 'em, and trembling legs and arms and heart beating  to burst after the mad strain of tho  past eight and forty hours.  "Now," said her ladyship to herself���������  "now I can go back to Kennaston and  spend the remainder of my Ufa making  cheeses for the vicar to munch o" Sundays, brewing cider for daddy to accelerate the pace of his gout withal,  breeding chicks as will win prizes and  pigs as will be the envy of all, and"���������a  sob occurred here���������"presently a-readlng  in the London print of the grand marriage of Sir Percy de Bohun with Lady  Diana Weston. And me without the  chance of wedding even that little ape,  .Sir Jtobiu McTc*ujj_But_i������s_all right  as 'tis," adds her ladyship." "Had-1"  hung on Armsleigh hill 'twould not  have been too bad for one reared as I  have been In a God fearing fashion,  and who, for naught save jealousy, envy nnd all unchnritableness, did go  nnd so unsex myself. Lud! Is't I?  Peggy Burgoyne, spinster, a-sitting  here In breeches and waistcoat, a guest  in Mr. Beau Brummel's house without  any other lady to keep me In countenance! 'Tis said one gets broko in to  anything, but 'tis false, false! Pm not  broke In to being a man, and I never  should be. I detest, abhor and can't  endure tho being one. I that hnd always figured to myself tho happy day  when I'd be taken up to town!"  Lady Peggy is now pacing tho room,  ft trick, as has been set down earlier,  that she'd borrowed from her twin.  "I'd thought to be of the ton, a most  genteel young lndy, monstrous flno, a  lovely creature,n-taklng a dish of ton  nt Rnnolngh, a-rldlng to court In dad's  old coronet coach and with all tho  feathers I could borrow on top of my  frizzes and powder, nnd two swoot  patch"*-- set luRt nt the corner of my  Oimpies.   That's whut I'd dreamed of,  with Percy a-sturiug at me, lost In admiration, and ���������love!" Iler lndy ship  stamps her foot. "But what 'Ua ��������� is  this I" And she now picks up tho wig  from tho hearth and flings It on tho  couch bcBldo hor coat and sword.  " 'Talu't no moro in this world fine  gentlemen sighing and dying for mo; no  wedding favors and cake; no husband,  no children 1 Novor, for there's no war-  trying in heaven nn I over get thoro!  Nay, 'Peggy Burgoyno* il bo writ on  my tombstone, and llko as not tho lines  following il bo 'a maker of most uncommon lino sweetmeats and chooses!' "  Another flood of tears, and then my  Lady Poggy, obeying that well balanced head of hers, brushes thoin away  nnd proceeds to plan out hor homeward  journey und to administer a cunning  rotouch of tho cosmetics sho hnd erstwhile bought of tho players' apothecary In Drury lnno.  But homeward wny there could bo  nono Just yet, for Beau Brummel had  mado proposition of n most lively affair, which Indeed ho hnd already sot  afoot, for tho celebrating of "-"Ir ltobln's  restoration to his friends by tlio tlmoly  arrival and prowess of Bir Porcy. This  was numing ci������u uum homo io Y.-u*-  Liiii hi vtuiwi' u.i Twi..v.l.ij' ji'o'1-1 and In  musks. A ficuru tit' ladles mid gentlemen hnd been bidden to Join, Including  tho Ladles Dlnnn nnd Biddy, tho Hon-  orablo Dolly, the Misses Lovell, Lady  CheliiiKioitl, wmi uiuy -.uuuivrtuou iu  net as duenna for the unmarried fair.  In vain Lady Peggy protested; sworo  iilio could not, would not. Theso gentlemen would not take no for an answer, and onco again hor ladyship per-  t:i:'vt,d, a a Fhe r-.'liiot;itiHy nooi<do<\ to  tho junsquerud**, how far more dltllcult  'l.wurt to be out uf LixccLta V...L'.i Into  'em.  Percy was to be thoro; nt lon������t he  Was Invited. So much she know from  Mr. llrummol, and as Lndy Diana was  positive (o come up Jo town tor uuch a  iM������v������'Hy u������ it. luuiy lu uu.tv'.ua'.id.i of  court* bor lultor was certain to attend  hat, ...        ...  very well-! "Why should she, whose  whole life was to be passed In the compounding of cream cheeses and the visiting of poor old women, not give to  herself one more cause of vain regretting, one more glimpse of him she  adored?  At that hour, when Mr. Brummel  and his guests were doing honor to the  supposed Sir Robin, the real baronet  was called upon to receive two most  lamentable looking blackguards who  followed the boots up to the gentleman's room, unheeding both remonstrances and ugly words on the way  thither.  At sight of Mr. Bloksey and his companion in arms, each lame,'bound up  and wound up of leg and buck, with  their bonnets pulled down over their  brows, Sir Robin skipped from his easy  chair, with a gasp, half terrified at the  appearance, wholly eager to learn the  outcome of the plot.  " 'Tis done," both nodding In concert,  "and," adds Mr. Bloksey, "we're both  nigh done too. Wot with bullets apiece  hinside of us from the gentleman's pistols, and wot with gettin' our heyes  knocked hout of us and most bein'  caught by the watch when we was  a-lowerin' Lord Gower's heir hiuto the  Thames, we're 'ere, Sir Robin McTart,  to 'umbly remind you that we wants  more."  The baronet shakes his head, hands  thrust in pockets clutching purse and  pence. '  "Oh, no," answers he; "the job was  paid for in advance; my good men. Not  another groat will you get."  "Werry good," murmurs Bloksey,  turning on his slipshod heel. "We'll  just go down to the roundhouse, and  If it turns out as your lordship gets  hadmission to the Tower free you  needn't be too much surprised. We  doesn't mind a-tellin' 'owwe saw you  n-prickin' Sir Percy de1 Bohun last  night and a-weightin' of his mangled  corp and a-throwin' of the same hinto  the river at the old Dove pier! Oh, no;  we doesn't!"   This at the doorsill.  "What," What, you knaves! Here,  come back! Come back, I say!"  shrieks the terrified little gentleman,  seizing a shoulder of each and forcing  them into seats.  After which simple application of  lpnnTaTy~methods^lTr-Bloksey~and~his-  friend find no difficulty whatever in the  way of wresting from their patron another ������100, with which they make off,  again and again rehearsing to him how  great risks they had run in decently  interring the body of his hated rival.  Once rid of them, Sir Robin rose,  stretched himself and yawned.  'Twas an abject soul, one of those  creatures born of a good and honest  stock on either side which sometimes  cumber the earth as if in ribald jest  against the accepted laws of birth and  breeding.  With no misgiving save that of a possible detection Sir Robin, now that this  even had been disposed of at an expense of 100 guineas, felt nothing if  not jubilant, and on the morrow proceeded to order hlra a suit of satins  In crimson, a hat of tho latest fashion,  ruffles, cravats, silk hoso, a muff and  a lot of other fallals at M. Jabot's  in Holborn. For tho baronet, freed,  ns ho fancied, of his enemy and feeling positive that Lady Peggy \vouId  soon, out of tho overflow of hor vast  affection for him, contrive n message  through hor obliging Mr. Incognito, desired to bo equipped In tho lntost modo  for that summons to his lady's presence which ho believed must ultimately  ind perhaps presently arrive.  It ls true ho oxpoctod that his entrance Into tho gay world of fashion,  which ho promised himself by,.way of  Introduction should bo nt Vauxhall,  might bo a bit hampered by tho no  jounts ho must hour of tho sudden dls-  ipponranco of Sir Porcy do Bohun, but  llils seemed a trlllo In the path of a  pmtlomnn for whoso snko Lady Peggy  Burgoyuo had come up to town, w  maincd Invisible, employed an Incog*  n I to as Mercury, and of whoso name,  albeit falsely, tho prints had mado  most marvolouB mention.  Now, Sir Robin hnd not neon tho  tenth part of theso last. No, not any  of 'em, In truth, snvo tlio ono ho had  shown to hor ladyship the evening  they had encountered ench other at tho  Dovo pier.

"What's to prevent me  buying a couple of masks and, with,  our cloaks set out by our swords,  a-joinlng in this gay diversion?" The  little gentleman's eyes twinkle with  sweet anticipation.  "But," hesitates tho vicar, "would  such levity be' counted seemly for one  of my years and profession?"  "Tut, tut, sir!" cries Sir Robin. "I'll  not take a refusal. Hark ye, I have  reasons," adds he mysteriously.  ���������"There's one of the fair likely to be  present who pines to see me, sir, and  whom I yearn to behold once more.  There hath been an obstacle," continues the cold blooded monkey, "but  Providence hath removed it. I pray of  you to accompany me, sir, and 'twill  lead mayhap to banns being read on  Sunday se'ennight in the church at  Friskingdean."  The vicar, being carried away by two  natural and one of 'em a most laudable  emotion, at last consented. He was  quite in fatherly sympathy with his  old pupil's ambition to settle in life,  and he had that curious hankering  after just a nibble at the edge of the  fleshpots of Egypt which is not uncommon to gentlemen of even his sedate years and failing sight  Sir Robin bought masks and cloaks  of black and ordered them sent to the  Bishop, where he had agreed to sup on  Tuesday and go thence by land to  Vauxhall. Indeed he had just now  come out of the draper's shop and  turned down toward the Vicar's inn  when he caught sight of Lady Peggy  walking swiftly from him. She had  been buying stains for her skin and  eyebrows.'.  "Mr. Incognito!" cried he, scampering  hither and yon���������into the kennel, on to  the path, jostling fair ladies' chairs,  running into a porter's pack, thumping  a horse in the nose with his ill worn  "Dear Mr. Incognito."  weapon and finally gaining on tho one  ho pursues���������and dealing her ladyship's  shoulder no gentle blow.  "Ha, there!" cries she, turning, hand  on hilt. Thon, perceiving who 'tis, she  nlmost shudders and draws up to her  full height.  "Dear Mr. Incognito," pants Sir Rob-  In, "how fares my lady? Tell me, I bo-  seech youl"  "Sho fares but Ul, sir," answora sho,  making to proceed.  "No, no; not so fast, I implore. Ob,  sir, I die tor her!"  "Vory woll, sir. Sho Is willing.

"Now, now," soothes tho baronet  "Wo'ro well mot, Mr. Incognito; that  I'm assured of, and that Lady Poggy *d  far rather I'd livo thnn dlo for her,"  leers he, "slnco for tho snko of communicating with mo sho's at no doubt  great exponsos in maintaining you?"

Itltl'MMKL'S party went  by water to Vauxhall, and  'twas, indeed   n   lu-iivculy  night for such au cH-cdlUou,  with no large, lady moon altering, bat  I  tis ratner a tbln slip or a'-Biiver aamsei  hanging in the vault and millions of  stars a-waiting on her, uot any of these  a-revealing too much or a-teiling any  tales If a gentleman's hand chanced to  come In contact with a lady's amid the  folds of brocade or under tlie long cloth  of the black, crimson or blue cloaks in  which all theso merry masqueraders  were enveloped.  Sir Percy de Bohun was beside Lady  Diana Weston. Peggy noted the same  with jealous, despairing eyes, while at  the left of Lord Brookwood's daughter  sat her own twin, only the second tlmo  she had seen him since the memorable  night in Lark lane, nor did she see him  plainly nowr, for all the company had  set forth In their masks and only removed them between whiles to gain a  breath of fresh air. 'Twas expected  that tho larger number of tho party  would meet them at the gardens, nnd  thereafter the sport and mystification  would begin.  So It turned out. Not only all the  rest of Mr. Brummel's friends in their  cloaks and masks, with glimpse now  and then of satins, taffetas, laces, ribands, jeweled stomachers, bodices  ablaze nnd so forth, but a vast assemblage of other folk also awaited the arrival of the Beau's barge at the bottom  of the gardens.  Among these, two lurked in the shadow of the trees. They were Sir Robin  and the vicar. The former noted with  deep joy that he had by a happy chance  chosen a crimson color for his new suit  exactly corresponding to that of one  of these gallants, that his cloak of sable  hue was also quite the ton and that he  could thus with ease mingle with the  party, and presently no doubt either  discover Lady Peggy's identity, or, moro  than likely, she herself would disclose  the same to him and at last reward  his faithfulness and patience, No  qualm visited the little gentleman's  conscience pocket with regard to his  supposed victim, although it is true  he had given him a vicious thought as  he had stood near the river's bunk  waiting for Mr. Brummel's barge to  come in sight So had Peggy as she  was being rowed past the old Dove  pier. Into her mind and into Sir Percy's had come the memory of the Sunday night but he spoke of it no more  than, certes, did sho.  _i5i**_Robin, his cup overflowing with  pleasurable antrapHiM~i5naT;*ae~gratl"  tied sense that the one who had sworn  to take his life lay, fish food, at the  bottom of the Thames, flitted hither  and yon, dragging the bewildered vicar  of Friskingdean in his wake,  i Wherever the company of Mr. Brummel wandered there followed, hanging  on to the fringe, as 'twere, these two,  whom presently one-half the guests ac-  .,��������� cepted as a matter of course to be of  themselves.  Sir Robin at last made bold to address a few words, as It chanced, to  -.life lively Lady Biddy O'Toole.  **It had seemed to him after a careful  survey of all and having been able by  dint of his ears to learn which was  Kennaston, whoso was tbe only personality so far In his possession, that  Lady Biddy's arch turn of tho head  was tho most llko to belong to the object of his passion. So up ho springs,  mincing, leaving tho vicar to huddle in  the Bhado, and, pulling her ladyship's  mask riband with a twitching linger  and thumb, as ho had seen others do  just now, ho snid, very low, in her ear:  "I'm suro I know who your ladyship  ls,"  "Out with It," says she, vory low too.  "It's sho whoso Imago ls writ on my  heart," answers he.  "Suro," answers sho; "that's n thing  that can never bo known until you'ro  dead, and ranybo not-as Boon, sluco tho  surgeons don't cut up everybody. Lud,  sir, glvo mo your name, and we'll talk  of your heart nnon." \  "I am Sir Robin McTart of Robins-  wold, Kent!" exclaims ho, fooling posl-  tlvo that this saucy minx Is none other  than his adored, for, bo It remembered,  Lady Biddy spoko under her breath  ond with a disguised tono to hor volco.  '"Od's blood!" now whispers hor  ladyship, with nn accent of mode terror, Into Sir Robin's oar., "You, tbo  highwayman, tho cutthroat, tho robber,  whnt, I'vo heard, sticks gentlemen In  Iho bnck or has your men do It for  you and profits by that samo!" laughing fit to kill herself,  But tho llttlo man does not laugh.  Tho cold Bwent stands out nil over his  sallow countenance, nnd he's so terrified, recalling tho threats of Mr. Bloksey, that he stands stock still aud really cannot move a leg,  Timy nre nlrii the Dark wnlks ns Sir  Robin comes to his halt, and Lady Biddy, not pniiHlng ovon to note his silunco,  goes mortily on with hor most apt discourse.  "Oh," proceeds she, -'but you nro the  !.":���������'> of tlio ���������"���������*������������������ Sir Ttnbln. ninl It's my  self that's proud to bo In your com-  pnny, nnd, faith, I'd llko to have died  running to seo you hung on Saturday  last!"  "Ilnngl" gasps ho, gelling bnck tlio  use of hi* voice, but not of hia slinking  U'tfrt.   "Saturday Inst!"  ������������������non't tto ttint liiiKitfui, Sir Robin,  making ns If you'd never heard of tuu-h  before!" Aud Lndy Biddy gives the  Imrout't's clonk n playful tweak. "Lud,  sir, you and Sir Percy do lUihun's tho  two nioxt talked about of nil tho bucks  in town!"  "Sir rcjcv de Bobunl" repeats he hu  C  knees knocking togetner.  "Sure'n didn't he save you from the  gibbet? Oh, go along with you. Sir  Robin!   You can't palaver Lady"���������  "Lady who?" he contrives to ejaculate, struck nearly dumb at this mention of his rival, while Lady Biddy now  bridles and is mute. ���������  "You are Lady Teggy Burgoyne. are  you not?" he goes on more softly, bending toward his companion and concluding at last that the lady's words must  have been the mere haphazards of a  sparkling disposition.  Now, Lady Biddy, In common with  other ladies of fashion and moving In  certain high circles of society, had  heard a deal of the mysterious and all  unseen Lady Peggy. She weir knew  the supposition that was rife as to  Lndy Peggy being secretly the wife of  Sir Robin McTart ,She knew from  her bosom friend. Lady Diana Weston,  who had the same most direct from her  suitor, Lord Kennaston, Lady Peggy's  own twin brother, that his sister was  from home, unknown her whereabouts  to father or mother, kith or kin, maid  or man, save that she was "up in London;" that Sir Tercy de Bohun was  mad for love and loss of her; that  her brother, had he not been In like  case by means of Lady Diana., would  long since have made public search, as  he was Indeed making such privately,  for the discovery, of the eloping fair.  She likewise wns aware that Sir Robin  frequented the gay world, was uot  averse to ogling a lady, as she herself  could testify; stopped at Mr. Brummel's house, and, albeit 'twas said  had fought n duel with Sir Percy because of Lady poggy, still did not absent himself from any rout, ridotto or  ball on her always absent account.  So, equipped with such a fund of  knowledge and any amount of surmise,  lier ladyship replied coyly beneath her  mask:  "Why do you think so, Sir Robin, and  pray, if I were Lady Poggy, what now  would you be ufther saying to me?"  "Zouuds! 'Tis she!" exclaims the baronet, carried away by the fact that  Lady Biddy's hand beneath her cloak  has more than half way met his own  moist and trembling fingers.  "Loveliest of women! Oh, 'twas indeed by your express directions, was't  not,.that Mr. Incognito on Monday,  watching for me in High'Hblboru nigh  lhe"^hop~o"f~M"ounscer-nJabot���������bid-ine-^-  come here tonight to meet you?"  Lady Biddy, although much averse  to the clammy touch of her cavalier,  gives his fingers an assuring pressure.  "Why, oh, why," pursues Sir Robin,  now us much elated by this tacit confession of her passion for him as he  was but lately overwhelmed by the  mention of bucIi strange words as  "hanging, highwayman, Sir Percy de  Bohun," etc.���������"why hnve you seen fit  to keep me in such a length of suspense? Why hnve I not been allowed  before this to behold you and renew  tho days of our sojourn In Keut?  Speak, my angel, speak!"  "Lu, sir," murmurs Lndy Biddy,  mlnxllko, ever anxious to get-nt the  heart of this now much deepened enigma���������"la, sir, do you not know but too  well tho whys und wherefores of my  secrecy?" Her ladyship from Cork actually squeezes the little baronet's  crooked llttlo hnnd.  "That do I not! Mr. Incognito never  would tell mo aught but thus and so  and bndo mo from your adorable lips  keep myself iu seclusion and safety,  nor ovor," continues ho, his tono sinking to a moro breath, "endanger my  precious self," now stooping to imprint  a chaste kiss on hor ladyship's hand,  "in tho meeting oven onco of Sir Percy  do Bohun, for ho had sworn to kill ino  on beholding mo.

W. J. HUNTER  Editor and Proprietor of the Reporter,  Fort Saskatchewan, N.W.T.  In this series of sketches of western  editors reference has often been made  to the fact that among the most influential and prominent of the journalists  of Western Canada are those who  have served in every department of the  mechanical side of a newspaper's production. . Nearly all the editors in  Manitoba and the Northwest Territories are "graduates of the case." For  this there are good and sufficient rea-  ~sonsr~Glosely_conclateJJo^Lecountry  newspaper is the job departmenC^lrr  fact, only In Winnipeg, Brandon and  perhaps one or two other towns in the  entire northwest/can job printing offices, pure and simple be found. Elsewhere all job printing is done by the  local papers, and the work devides the  week with that of printing and publishing the paper. The day next following "press day" Is usually given up  to distributing, the next two���������often  three���������are devoted to job work, and  two or threo days, as the case may be,  are devoted to setting the news for  the ensuing paper. This is the regular routine of the week's work in the  great majority of Western Canadian  weekly papers, though, in concerns  published in largo enough places, the  job department, though part of the  newspaper, employs a staff for that  exclusive purpose, and Is operated all  til A WPfilc  It will thus bo seen that Western  Canadian journalism puts a premium  on (he mechanical side of the business  of getting out a newspaper. There is  not enough writing to do to occupy  tho whole of any man's time.  Indeed,  many local papers do not sot more  than four or five galleys of matter a  week, Including country correspondence, local news and editorial. Vory  seldom is this set in any smaller face  than 8 point, and often tho matter is  set in 10 poiut. Tho securing and  writing of this copy could be done by  a good reporter in a day, and for the  balance of tho week tho recorder ot  local news and views, should he occupy hlmsolf solely with tho writing  of tho mattor his papor prints from  week to wook, would bo a gentleman  of leisure This accounts for the fact  that so small a proportion of Western  odltors aro nowspapor mon, in the  Bonsu that tho torm is understood In  cities. It accounts also for tho big  preponderance of mechanically trained mon in tho buslnoss as it is conducted in tho west. Tho printer with  aufliclont knowledge to write, if not  with grace, with intelligibility, Is a  much greator asBOt to tho country  ofllco than tho mere strlngor togotbor  ot phrases, or tho man who can discuss with lucidity and learning tbe  most abstruse problems of government, Tho intelligent printer-editor  Is ot value every mlnuto of the wook,  while tbo mere writer ls of use for  only twenty por cent, of his time  around a country newspaper ofllco.  The printer-editor can look after his  own makeup, lay out bis advertisements in the most uuittciUu Ivtvn, save  materini, aavo time, reduce eypenun,  and in dozens o{ ways increase the  efficiency and enhance tho appearance  of bis paper, and ia addition give tbe  job department all the advantages of  ya'tfaal and   prt\otlon\   sunervlston.  Hence it is no wonder that many a  careful and ambitious journeyman sets  before his mind, as tbo goal ot bis desire, the aim of ono day being tbe  editor and proprietor ot a papor ot bis  own; nor is it any wonder that in tbe  Canadian West, the land of opportunity for printers as well as farmers,  such alma aro frequontly reallaetl.  Tbe number of newspaper proprietors  wbo are practical printers is the com-  plotest proof of tbe tact.  Of such a class Mr. W. J. Hunter,  the editor and proprietor of the Saskatchewan Reporter, is a typical instance. He has been in the west for  nearly twenty years, having come to  Manitoba as a boy in 1878. His parents settled at Emerson, and there,  when school days were over, and the  boy had to select his life work, he decided to learn the printing business.  He served as devil on the Emerson  International, subsequently moving to  Portage la Prairie, sticking type on  the newspapers of that place.   In 1893  he went west to Edmonton, and for  ten years remained on the staff of the  Bulletin, the paper owned by Hon.  Frank Oliver. In the course of the  rapid growth of the Bulletin In recent  years, Mr. Hunter acquired a very  valuable journalistic experience, which  promises to stand him in good stead  now that he Is In business for himself.  Last year he saw an opportunity of  establishing a new paper. The country to the east of Edmonton was rapidly filling up, and the influx of immigration was building up the old trapper fort, Fort Saskatchewan, until it  had prospects of being a good commercial and agricultural centre. So Mr.  Hunter bought a plant and set to work  to publish the Fort Saskatchewan Reporter. Its success has more than justified his enterprise. Already it has  become a newspaper of more than ordinary influence. Its circulation is  each week increasing, its advertising  patronage is becoming correspondingly important, and its comments on  local and general events are each  week looked forward to with interest  by its ever widening circle of readers.  . Mr. Hunter's success is well deserved. It is but the replica of many another such story of energy and faith  that the people of the West feel in  their country. As the days go by, and  the West becomes more populous and  more productive, it is but reasonable  to believe that the Reporter will occupy a more important place in the  minds of the people among whom it  circulates, and that its editor will hold  a more important place than he at  presen t occupies in the estimation of  the residents of Northern Alberta.  here?" asked ihe passenger with the  upturnd moustache and . the bored  look, who had stuck bis head out  through a car window* "Well, we git  a lot o' fun comin' to,; the deepo an'  lookin' at the queer critters that goes  through yere: on the .k'yars." replied  the native who was l6jing*ng on the  station platform.
