Sir,���������during the progress of the sale  of work in the Cumberland Hall last  week, a person was guilty of soliciting  subscriptions lo purchase a piano for ihe  U. & C. Hospital. When people attend  a function which is for the support of a  worthy institution, they do so with the  intention of spending what tbey can  afford there, but do not expeci to be  " held up " by anyone for subscriptions  to provide an unnecessary luxury for a  public hospital. If the persons in charge  of the "begging" list bad the welfare  of the hospital at hearr, they would see  ihat the large amount of money collected  was applied to necessities and comforts.  What about a door covering and coat of  kalsomine fur the woman's ward, some  fencing and a bit of garden would also  be a decided improvement to the outside  of the building.���������Yours &c���������  Observer.  r  j Cook Stoves and Ranges  Better get our Prices before you Buy.

CHASE'S  SYRUP of LINSEED  AND  TERPENTINE  FOR AILMENTS OF THE THROAT  AND  LUNGS  Tou cannot be too particular in buy-  in-*; medicine.  It may be a question ot life or death.  There are so  many cough and cold  remedies  that  there  ls  a tendency  to  be careless  In  the  selection  of treatment, and yet what is more dangerous  ��������� than a cold?  You would not think of taking any  medicine that might be offered for  heart trouble or kidney disease, and  yet far more people die from the result of neglected colds than from these  ailments.  INSIST ON HAVING A MEDICINE  OF RELIABILITY AND REPUTATION.  SUCH AS DR. CHASE'S SYRUP OF  LINSEED  AND  TURPENTINE.  This great family medicine "has stood  the teBt of years, and never disappointed those who put their trust In  it as a cure for croup, bronchitis,  whooping cough, asthma, coughs, colds  and throat troubles.  Do not be satisfied with substitutes  and imitations, for they lack the curative, powers which have given Dr.  Chase's Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine   its   world-wide   reputation.  MRS. R. D. TURNER, Broadview, N.  W. T., writes: "We have seven children and have used Dr. Chase's Syrup  of Linseed and Turpentine for every  one of them, _ and with good results.  We get four bottles at a time and  find it a good remedy to break up  cold  on  the  lungs."  MRS. A. A. VAN BUSKIRK, Robinson street, Moncton, N. B., writes: "For  years I "have used Dr, Chase's Syrup  of Linseed and Turpentine for my  children when they have colds In tha  winter. I first used it with my daughter, who suffered from a severe form  of asthma. The least exposure to cold  would lay her up and she would nearly suffocate for want of breath. I  must say I found it to be a most satisfactory, treatment; and It has entirely cured her. It seems to go direc4  to the diseased parts and bring trie desired   relief."

If farmers once took time to think  of these matters, there would undoubtedly be a great improvement.  Windmills are now both cheap and  common, and there is no reason why  well-to-do farmers should not have a.  water system in their houses, with  all the conveniences and advantages  which residents in tho cities enjoy  from the water works systems there  established. '     '     -i  Though not quite so convenient,  the dry earth closet is so cheap and  so satisfactory from tho sanitary  point of view that no fanner cun  discover a reasonable excuse for refusing to adopt it. A well laid  cement concrete floor will be found  by far the easiest to keep in a ck'an  and wholesome condition. A stout  box suitable size, mounted on runner- and with a etrocig hook at ono  end to which a horso may be attached.makes a roccptablo that can  bo conveniently drawn to the field or  barnyard to be emptied. This box  may be made wholly or in part of  sheet! iron, and if the-bottom be  semi-circular in form a kettle of hot  water will be found sufficient to  loosen the frozen contents in winter.  Galvanized iron buckets, larger at  the top than at the bottom, are also  easy to empty in winter. The naturo  of the receptablc is largely a matter  of convenience; the essential features  of the system are the storing and  uso of a plentiful supply of dry earth  and the emptying of the receptable  regularly. If the contents be spread  thinly ovor the surface of a field,  they will be decomposed in a very  few. days with no danger to tho public health.  Ashes should not be used as a substitute for earth, and road dust is  very littlo better. The surface soil  of a field or garden that has been  frequently cultivated will be found  just the thing. If a little coarse or  lumpy it may be run through a  gravel screen. It is always advisable to keep a good supply on hand,  ia it becomes drier and better with  ago when stored in a bin.  If tha man who has hitherto been  careless in this particular will adopt  and maintain a proper sanitary system in connection with his closet, he  will find himself gaining largely, not  only in self-respect, but in the respect of his family and of the  strangers within his gates. Furthermore, ho may thereby escape tho  j-ravages���������of��������� such���������discases^-as-typhoid  fever, which are so frequently traced  "to the use of contaminated water.

By far tho  groater number buve to bo utterly  ���������condemned, and it seems very evident that a great improvement ia  our w.ater supplies is necessary.

For twenty-five years I suffered with the malady of the Kidneys.  I felt always feeble and was often in  pain. One day I received a Dodd's Almanac and read of many wonderful  cures in it. Then I decided to give  Dodd's Kidney Pills a trial. I took  twenty-five boxes in all and now I am  perfectly cured."  Dodd's Kidney Pills always cure sick  Kidneys.

If a stallion in tho stud gets the  right amount of cut hay in his grain  ration he does not need loose hay  during the day, says Breeder's  Gazette, Only the best quality of  hay Bhould be fed to breeding horses.  Oats or wheat cut when in the milk  makes the best hay for such animals if cured properly, as such has  loss dust and dirt and usually comes  on to bo cut and mado at a dry seat  son of the year.

Mills,  of   noarly    two  months in the Northwest and British  Columbia.     "I.   certainly   was   vory  greatly   surprised," said Mr. Blair,  "at tho   progress   which has    beon  mado in tho   west during   tho lust  two    years.    1 saw almost all   tho  towns,  with tho exception of  thoso  off tho main lino, und all had grown  in population and  biiHlness.

K.' have aequireu  the necessary property and are now  establishing yards which are claimed  to be the largest of any railway in  the world, consisting of 70 miles of  tracks. They are erecting a new  station and an enormous hotel. The  sum of their expenditures in Winnipeg amounts to about $3,000,000.  ' 'There has been very marked progress in Regina. The country north  of it, which is tributary to the Regina, Qu'Appolle & Long Lake Railway, is absorbing quite a number of  settlers. Prince Albert is improving  and his excellent prospects of becoming a very fine town. Calgary  has grown immensely, 'and has a very  promising future before it. The C.  P. R. have made substantial progress with irrigation works in the  vicinity of Calgary, which are intended to serve a million and a half  of acres., I saw,a 55-foot cutting in  connection with the main irrigation  canal, and the soil was a fine rich  loam. How much deeper that rich  soil goes I cannot tell. There will  be three secondary canals aggregating in distance 115 miles, in addition to the main channel. Then thero  "wiir'Tre^i^^  ing a total length of 900 miles. Tha  area of land to be served by the  irrigation works will support, it is  computed, a farming population of  250,000 souls.  -.  "Subsidiary to the area watered  by the irrigation works are another  million and a half of grazing lands  of the best quality. I ran up from  Calgary to Edmonton. The latter is  steadily growing in importance. All  along the intervening distance are  established towns and settlements  that aro rapidly growing in importance. Thero is a numerous _ettle-  ment0 of Galicians extending eastward from Edmonton, and comprising perhaps about 15,000 souls. The  othor settlers speak vory highly ��������� of  thorn. They are hard working,  thrifty, and havo a well-to-do appearance A number of roller mills  have boon Bont into tho country  north of Edmonton, one of them for  tho Hudson's Bay Company. I took  the trouble when in Winnipeg to in-  qulro of Governor Chipman of the  Hudson's Bay Company as to the  truth of this statement. He said  thoy had erected a mill at Dun-  vegan, 1,200 miles northwest of Edmonton, and woro grinding wheat  raised in tho locality and meeting  the wants of tho people thero. That  I consider a remarkable fact,  "Between Red Dcor and McLeod we  noticed from tho train thousands of  cattlo on tho ranges. Thoy woro simply rolling in fat. The O. P.

EARN A  Comfortable Living  WITH A  Chatham Incubator  Poultry raising with a Chatham  Incubator is a very profitable and  easily managed occupation. Unless  you want to go into it extensively it  need take but very little ol'your time.  Government reports show that the  demand for chickens in Canada is  greatly in excess of the supply and  Great Britain is always clamoring  for, more. That means a steady  market and good prices I'or chickens.  You cannot raise chickens successfully with a setting hen. She is wasting time setting when she should be  laying. While she is hatching and  brooding a few chickens she could be  laying five or six dozen eggs. The  percentage of chickens she hatches is  much less than that produced by the  Chatham Incubator.  It will pay you to own a Chatham  Incubator.  Chatham Incubators contain every  improvement of importance in Incubator construction that has been produced. They are made of thoroughly  seasoned wood, with two walls, case  within case. .Between these walls  mineral wool is packed forming the  very best insulation. Each piece of  the case is mortised and grooved and  screwed, making the whole as solid  as a rock. Chatham Incubators are  equipped with scientifically perfect  regulators which are an infallible  means of regulating the temperature.  No cash.to pay until  October, 1905.  We will start you raising poultry  -for-profit~with-a-Ghatham-Incubator���������  without one cent of money from you  until next Pall. That means that you  can take off seven or eight hatches  and make considerable money out of  the Incubator before the first payment  becomes due.  We couldn't make this offer if we  were not certain that if you accept it  you will get complete satisfaction, if  we were not positive that the Chatham  Incubator will pay you a handsome  yearly income.  This is a straightforward offer. We  make it to show our supreme confidence in the Chatham I,ncubator. We  want you lo accept this offer as we  are sure of the satisfaction our Incubator will give.

Superficially, it  was a comedy; potentially, a tragedy.  After loftily, ignoring each other for  thirty years, the rival houses were at  last forced to take intimate cognizance  one of each other.  It came about naturally enough. John  Carr and Luke Phillips, the present  beads of tbe families, had been iu college days the chosen friends of Billy  Bluff, who now, as the famous Senator Bluff, was in Harrowby on purpose  to visit them. A great card was the  ���������enator. Neither of the enemies could  afford to give him up wholly to ihe  other. As he knew nothing of the unfriendliness, they did not choose to enlighten him. Contrariwise, they made  tacit and temporary truce, speaking  civilly to-each other in his presence  and even sitting at each other's board-  to do him cordial honor.  This was less awkward than it might  have been, since there had never been  a violent breach���������only a drawing away  and looking to the other side of the  street or over heads in casual encounters.  The quarrel1 was over the chc-ice of a  minister, and, of course, all the bitterer for that. The Carrs had been worsted, and-; though they still came to St  Michael's and duly supported all its  good works, they took no part in anything else. Therefore -everybody felt  that their grudge was the greatest.  Luke Phillips pretty well ran tbe ministers and quite ran the church.  A masterful man, with a daughter of  his own stripe, he could not very well  help it. Oriana, the daughter, was indeed so much a chip off the old block  her fine name made part of the comedy.  She wa8 twenty-five, tall and stout,  with dark eyes nnd a fine carnage, to  say nothing of the way she wore her  clothes. Almost every Sunday her  fingers fairly itched to get bold of  Louise Carr's ribbons.  *  ~"'Couise_waIThe~younger7by five years^  sweet faced and sunny tempered, but  woefully careless as to how she looked.  So she had clean clothes and whole it  never bothered her in the least what  else they were or were not. She certainly did look odd in plain coat sleeves  when every other woman iu church  had dangling, baggy puffs and frills  all over her arms.  Perhaps if ho had not seen ber first  in a party frock with no sleeves to  speak of Senator Bluff might not have  given her a second thought. He was a  bachelor and as rich as he was distinguished. Gossip hinted, too, that he  was looking for a wife. Gossip snid  also in a way not to. be gainsaid he  would look a long time before finding  anybody better suited to the position  thnn Oriana.  Orlaua herself was quito of that  opinion, although of cohrso she kept it  unspoken. Senator Bluff was" certnluly  impressed ut their llrst mooting. He  insisted upon putting ilp at tlie hotel,  although dining or breakfasting every  day with his old col logo chums. Limlso  was away at hor grandmother's when  ho enmo. Thus for a wholo week Oriana had a clour.field.  Thou tlio Grays gave a party, nnd  Loulso danced nt It, a slim white  wraith moving on winged foot, with  yellow hair tumbling -all about bur  rosy fnco and ovory llbor vibrant with  joy In tho music and Iho rhythmic motion.  Until ho saw hor Senator Bluff had  until staidly that his ilniieing days wuro  over, At fifty ouo might woll louvo  But'lt UiIiiks to the new generation.

Noxt day It was ovon worm**, Tho  iio'tintor hronltfiistod nt tho Cnrrs and  immediately nftonvnrd took Loulso and  hor mother for u long vagrant drive  nbout tho country. Capping tho climax,  ho brought thoin along with him to  dlno at tho Phillips house, saying airily  to Orliina, who wiih mistress of it:  "You see, I tnko your father at his  word, IIo Hiild tho hot we waa mine  whllo T stayed.'-'  "You did quito right," Orlnna nnid  ewvotjy, rwtsiuiicd by n glance nt Lou-  lt������e, 'Hits kit J hud ou a Udcd bine mug-  ham two yours out of dote, and hor  hair wns positively stringy. No doubt  tho senator thought of hor an only n  llttlo girl Jn tlio awkward ago, heueo In  nei'il ot Npccml foiiHiilfi'iunm, >jo mnn  in Mm souses would look at hor In comparison wllli Oriana, a stntely vision  in canary yellow gauze, with dark rod  roses nodding against her bare breast  and nestled nmld tho darkness of her  hair.  Louise gar.ed st her Joyously. "You  ���������re nhv,,.vri hi'iunlul, Mi** 'Aua, Tonight you are a queen," she snid, then  went to dinner, quite unconscious of  ber own rumpled appearance.  She bad smoothed hor hair * bit and  stuck' a spray 6* sweet peas in tne low  coil so the flowers drooped against her  soft, white neck. Young Luke Phillips, who took her out, looked at her  and patronizingly decided tbat sbe was  a dowdy. Before dinner ended he  changed his mind. Senator Bluff/managed somehow to set Louise telling'  stories and acting them. She had tl^e  rare and heavenly gift of losing herself entirely in whatever she did. So.  utterly neglecting her plate, she was  by turns the minister's wife making a  pseudo pastoral visit, her grandmother's companion. French Peter at tbe  tollgate or Miss Jane sowell, the milliner, with HaiTowby's hats on her  conscience.  In vain her mother frowned, sighed,  tried to stop her. A creature of whim  and impulse, Louise would not be stayed. As a consequence Luke'junior  went back to the parlor pretty well enslaved. Oriana saw it, with rejoicing,  although a fortnight back sho would  have been deadly angry.  Sbe was clear sighted. She had lost  the senator beyond peradventure unless she could make him believe Louise  was not free. That was a trifle ha������-  ardoua, but she wno ready for hazards.  So, while Louisfe sang in a sweet, untrained voice the few trite songs she  knew, Oriana tried her charms. Gently of course! She fairly purred in Senator Bluff's ear ber joy that the family  feud.at which she barely hinted, was  to be so beautifully healed. It was a  secret as yet, but Luke would establish himself in another year; he was  fresh from college, being Oriana's junior. Wouldn't the senator come back  next summer for tbe wedding? She  hoped so, most devoutly. Louise was  such a dear, the Phillipses did not in  the least mind that she would bring  her husband only herself.  Senator Bluff was genial, but evasive.  He also was clear sighted. By something approaching intuition he had  looked into Louise's heart and found  its deeps untroubled, untenanted. But  he was not very sorry for. what Oriana  bad said. It gave him exactly the  opening he was longing for. So the  next day, as he stood with Louise beside the raspberry thicket, helping her  pick berries for lunch, he said offhandedly: "Say, ladybird, if you want to  get married, don't worry yourself over  ways and means. I'll tend to all  that"-   i!IndeM!lXmis-*LMJ&^^  smile. "You're taking a big contract,  senator. You'll have to provide everything���������from the bridal veil to the  bridegroom.

For  the benefit of those who wished to  consult them they were exhibited in  a public place, each reader being called upon to pay a small coin called a  gazetta; hence the word "gazette."

There is very little simplicity and certainly nothing that is economical In  the lingerie of today. The ordinary  seam bus been banished in favor of  the entre-deux. Transparent yokes of  Valenciennes, with medallions and embroideries, are introduced on to the  nightgowns, which no longer boast of  collars and frills. They are cut as low  squares and edged with lace, the more  long shouldered the more fashionable,  and it is quite the mode to mix laces  to any extent, mingling other sorts with  ths favorite valenciennes.

At the farewell banquet given to  Lord and Lady Minto, the retiring  Governor-General said: ,  "I can assure Your Worship that if  during my term of office I have been  fortunate enough in the fulfilment of  my duties to earn for myself the appreciation of the people of the Dominion, I ask for no greater reward  and now I may say the same 'for  Lady Minto. Her interests have always centred largely in the welfare  of this country and the happiness of  its everjKiay life, and it will always  be a delight to her to hear of the  further success of work which she  has very much at heart.  "But to-night, Your Worship, there  is a 'rift' in the lutfe.- I now have  come to say good-bye. I have run my  race in Canada, the awkward fences  and the nasty turns are things of the  past, and I cannot ride it over  again. It is not for me to say whether the course has been easy or difficult, but it has certainly been full  of interest, and, after all, gentlemen,  it has only been the first heat in the  great Imperial stakes which it^ rests  ���������witir"the"peopTe of~the" United-Kingdom and the people of Canada to  win or lose.  "I hope Your Worship will absolve  me from any intention of trespassing  in the domain of politics, but perhaps it may not be out of place for  mo to glance very lightly at thc his-  dressers, and soft silk is being employed for many of the petticoats,  though very little of it is seen, being  hidden by the dace.  Drawers, petticoats and camisoles  nil in one appeal greatly to womankind, for they save trouble and are  very graceful. Much depends on the'  stays, though their existence should  not be perceptible, and an innovation  is to have the stays made to lace in  front and fasten at the back.  Tea gowns are diaphanous and, like  lounging gowns, demand that the slipper should be embroidered to match  the color of the gown, while sometimes  the stockings and slippers are painted  to match. Chinese embroidered slippers are a fad with kimonos.  WEDDING DRESS.  Gowns   of  a  Bride  aiid   BridenmaltK  Illustrated and Described.

"It's my constituents   tory of the past six years that have  who have a representative after that  job. Teli me, honor bright, do you care  for Luke Phillips'/"  "I wouldn't have him as a gracious  gift," Louise burst out.  Senator Bluff smiled���������almost as  "wickedly as she had done.  "In that case," he said, "since I have  undertaken to marry you off, I'll have  to, take you myself."  Louise said "Indeed!" again, but with  a different Inflection.

Twice within half a decade, the  spectacle has been presented of a  primitive civilization rebelling against  the intrusion of modern methods of  thought and uction. Tlie Doers in  189U fought primarily fur their religion and what it stands for in  their social development. The Chinese arose in 14)00 to expel innovators upon time honored customs and  ���������deals. Pertinent to the Chinese  ���������question is the argument of a Chinese olbcial residing in England during the Boxer war. it is significant  as nu eastern view of the west. Tho  writer says;  "Our civilization is the oldest in  tho world. It does not follow that it  ts the best, but neither, I submit,  does it follow that it is the worst.  On the contrary, such antiquity is,  at any rate, a proof that our institutions have guaranteed to us a  stability for which we search in vain  among the nations of Europe. But  not only is our civilization stable; it  embodies, as we think, u moral order, while in yours we detect only an  economic chaos. Whether your religion be better thnn ours I'do not at  present dispute, but it is certain that  , it has less influence on your society.  You profess Christianity, but your  civilization has never been Christian,  wliereas ours is Confucian through  and through. But to say that it is  Confucian is to say that it is moral,  or, at least, that moral relations are  those which it primarily contemplates, whereas with you (so it seems  to us) economic relations come first,  and upon these you endeavor afterward to graft as much morality as  thoy will admit."  The Chinese and English views of  the family are then compared, in tho  one case the child being trained to  individualism, to vunturesomeness  and competition, and in the other to  continue lifelong in the relations to  which he is born. The Chinese lookt  first to society, then to the individual. As a man begins so he ends, a  member of his family group, and to  this condition the whole theory and  practice of his life conform. He is  taught to worship his ancestors, to  ��������� honor and obey his parents and to  prepare himself at an early age for  the duties of husband and father.  Says the writer:  "No man in China is isolated sav������  by his own  fault.     If   it is not so  easy for him to grow rich    as    with.,  i-you, neither is it so easy for him  to  -starve���������if^he-luis-n^ tS"5  compete, neither has he tbe temptation to".cheat and oppress. Free at  once from the torment and the apprehension of distress, he has leisure  to spare from the ac-'p-isition of  the means of living for life itself. Ho  htfs both the instinct and the opportunity to appreciate the gifts of na- ,  ture, to cultivate manners and to  enter into humane nnd disinterested  relations,with his fellows. Tho result is a type which wo cannot but  regard as superior, both morally and  aesthetically, to the great bulk of  your own citizens of L'uropo. Admitting that we aro not what yon cull  a progressive people, wu yot perccivo  that progress may bo bought too  dear. We prefer our own moral to  your material oil van I ages, and we  are determined to ciine, to iiiKtitu-  tions which, we believe, insure us tho  former even at the risk of excluding  'ourselves from  the  la tier."'  In the opinion of this writer western people subordinate lite to wealth,  lie sn.VN* "Tln'.v uro U-i-h chvorliil, lana  contented, less industrious, less law-  nbi'lim.''; their ocenpnt ions are nuiro  unhealthy '>->th for body nml mind:  they lire crowded into ci lie's and factories, divorced from nature and the  ownership of the noil."  As to CJovernineiit in China, wd  rend here:  "���������You cun hardly renli/.i- the condition of a people that are abln; nl-  iiio'-t \vh'.d!.v in dlypeiiKo with it. Yet  such 'is our case,  "(Jiivi'iniiieut wiih us is based    on  the consent of the people to ft degree  whlcli vou in the west can hardly un-  dei'iittiiitj,   milch   ivMi   uiulate.

"I've cinched the finest wire that  was ever pulled, aud when them wire  get done pullin* Bill Garret's chances  are dead and rained on or my name's  not Jim Stinson. I've interviewed Miss  Elizabeth Heath, and she's ours."  The emphatic finger stopped as  Brackett sprang to his feet.  "You���������you interviewed Miss Heath  in my favor?"  "Yes. Why not? She's a power, she  1b, with them fellows' wives down In  the Tenth ward, en she's a lady right,  you bet"  Brackett dropped limply into the  chair behind him, while Stinson poured  out the history of his call upon Miss  Heath, the president of the Hypatia,  in a mixture of slang plentifully sprinkled with "sez I" and "sez she." Stinson took much glory to himself that he  Bhould have thought of this clever  stroke just at the critical point of the  campaign. Miss Heath's influence in  certain quarters was unbounded. Down  in the Tenth ward, where the tall tenements gloom above the river, the little  children of the poor watched for her  coming, and the tired mothers told her  all their trials and troubles, all their  simple ambitions and little joys, finding a ready sympathy. Stinson had  heard of Miss Heath through that  channel, and it was to those poor, tired  mothers that he looked for a controlling voice in the vote that would go up  from the Tenth ward. Stinson had  also counted on the lever wielded by  Miss Heath as president of the Hypatia, the woman's club that led not  only in the city, but in the state federation. The federation's interests once  aroused and its influence brought to  bear would mean a powerful leavening  at worli~for Tis^anHfroS^nT^norof  the state to the other. All this and  more he poured into the unheeding ear  of Brackett, whose mind was engrossed  with the one thought, the intolerable  shame that this mnn should have appealed to Eliacibeth Heath in his name.  Beyond all considerations of the governor's office, of his political future,  his mind reeled with the intensity of  this one thought.  Stluson's last words as he stood in  the doorway recalled him:  "I told her that you would call in a  few days nnd discuss the matter further. She seemed right willing to tako  a hnnd after she had chewed the rag a  bit, and I saw as how a call from you  would sorter clinch it. Women folks  has to bo made up to. 1 reckon you  know all about that? Well, so long,  Mr, Governor," and Stinson was gone.  John Brackett turned oil! the light  nnd sat still In tlie glow of the fire.  Tlio warm rays" danced ovor his fast  silvering head, bringing out the lines  of the tirod, old-young faco nnd accentuating in groiosi-ue shadow tbe  droop of his shoulders.

Old Peter's shuffling steps had died  away and the house was stilled. Then  he heard her step upon the stair and  down the hall, and Elizabeth stood before him, unchanged, except for the  graver lines about the firm, sweet  mouth and a deeper light in the dark  eyes. Brackett grasped her hand with  an almost painful force.  "Yon hav������ been auite a lone -n-blle  In claiming your old friends in Warn-  field. Mr. Brackett."  It was a merely banal greeting, but  the commonplace served to place Brackett on the right footing.  "Most certainly, and yet I feel that  I 6h'ould apologize for this intrusion,  had I not come to make apology for a  greater one that was made in my  name."  "You allude to Mr. Stinson's call?"  she laughed lightly. "Mr. Stinson does  me the honor to consid-er me a force  in the political situation. I assure you  t nrmwiatp' tlu������ comDliiuent. as the  president of the Hypatia. But as  Elizabeth Heath, I must beg to decline  Brackett made a slight movement  toward her. "I beg you to consider  the man and his total ignorance as to  the enormity of what he was doing.  It was a distinct shock to me to hear  your name upon his lips, and"���������  "I understand,',', she replied quickly.  'Believe me, I did not connect you  with it in the least. In fact, when he  mentioned that you would call to discuss the matter I was very certain that  you were entirely innocent of all  knowledge of his errand here."  Brackett flushed darkly.  "I trust you will treat this incident  as if it had never happened, and of  course there need be no question of  your support in a political sense."  Here they both laughed uneasily.  "So much so," she responded, "that  I will use every effort to further the  cause of Governor Brackett."  Brackett sprang to his feet, his dark  face aglow.   "Elizabeth!"  Miss Heath held up a warning hand.  "MrV Brackett, fifteen years have come  mid crone since anv man haa Eeio* en*  THE LAST BUFFALO  HUNT ON THE SOURIS PLAINS  (Walpole   Murdoch,   Hartney,   in     Winnipeg- Free Press.)  The last great buffalo hunt enjoyed in  the west took place forty years ago and  nearly all the half breed population then  in Manitoba engaged in the chase.  Some of those who took part in that  wild raid oh the buffalo are now residing in Alberta and delight to recall the  remembrance of the great hunt with the  various adventures connected with the  occasion. In the fall of 1864 the buffaloes had congregated in immense  numbers, south of the Turtle mountains  on the great plains east of the Souris  river. The hunti"ng party wa.s large 'and  consisted of men, women and children,  with nearly a thousand carts and hundreds of Indian ponies. As the hostile  Sioux were abroad the party had to  keep well together while outriders were  stationed at different points for the  purpose of watching the movements of  tlie^_buf������alo_berd.s and to give notice if  danger should appear.  ��������� The buffalo hunter of the plains possessed a peculiar character; he was a  skilful rider, a good shot, hardy, strong  and watchful and -courageous. He  usually rode a horse possessed of speed,  strength   and   wind.   Like  his   master,  the horse enjoyed, the excitement of the  chase and 'would strain every nerve to  bring" His' master alongside of the buffalo. In those days the buffalo hunter,  was usually armed with a smooth bore  muzzle loading gun. His supply , of  powder was contained in a horn that  hung from the shoulders by a strap.  The. hunter kept several bullets in his  mouth for the sake of expedition in  loading. When a drove of buffalo were  to be approached the advance was made  by hunters in the greatest of silence, the  leader of the party a little in advance,  his chifef duty ,,was that of restraining  the impetuosity of the more impatient  hunters and get his band as near the  buffaloes as possible, At length when  the buffaloes commenced to move, the  uneasiness would increase and the herd  started, the leader would shout and  then every horse would spring forward.  AH_ had_ to start, for n������ horse could  rbe restrained; 'Briclles weRTlIt^orgWs"  were brought into position and the wild  cavalry bore down on the flyinsr herd.  After the first shots had been delivered,  the hunter loaded his gun while his  horse was at full speed and in firing  care, was taken not to raise the breach  j higher  than  the   muzzle   lest the  ball  I should roll out, but, as the rider was  ' generally   only   a   few   feet   from   the  animal that he wished  to  shoot there  I was no such need to raise the gun to the  shoulder.    Sometimes  a   single  hunter  would shoot four or five buffaloes during   the chase   made on a good   herd.  The larger the drove the,better chance  i there was for the hunter as the animals  in   advance   retarded   the   progress   of  those in the rear where the attack was  taking  place.    Cows  and  young bulls  were not killed  unless by accident or  when game was scarce.   On the. occasion  of the great hunt the carts were-lpaded  with pemmican, tongues  aiv-1  skins  of  buffaloes.   When a hunter had dropped  a buffalo at some distance from his companions, or from camp, the horse was  tied to the head of the animal while its  master was   engaged   in  skinning   the  .beast that had been captured.    During  ^the���������continuance���������of���������the���������groat���������hunt��������� on-  ' the Souris plains which lasted for many  f weeks, the food of the hunters was meat  and nothing else.   The next season the  , buffalo herds had moved .far to the west  and never again returned in great numbers so near the Red river.

'The roar of the ostrich resembles  the roar of the lion because the ostrich  stole from the lion this sound, even as  oue playwright steals from another a  plot."  An ornithologist made that odd assertion in a taxidermist's shop, lie  went on to elaborate it as follows:  "Birds from the ostrich down are imitative. The ostrich where he lives  alone la silent, but in a country where  lions abound he roars. Why? Because  for centuries, admiring the majesty  and grandeur of the lion's roar, he  gradually learned to roar himself. Believe me, it is line to see an ostrich  throw back his little head and emit a  roar like thunder.  "Buntings imitate pipits, and green.  finches imitate yellowhammers.

An  Idea ef  Heaven  "It was ridiculous of the minister  to say that those things were 'as  widely removed as heaven and hell,'"  remarked the modern Pharisee.  "But the things in question were  very widely removed."  "Oh! that's all, right, but how could  heaven be heaven if it were so widely removed from the other place that  you couldn't see your enemies there?"  CANDLE AUCTIONS.  The Way Public Sales Were Formerly Conducted In England.  Candle auction was a well known  method of procedure in England in the  early days of the East India company.  Public notices of such sales were flrst  put up at the royal exchange. When  the day came a candle exactly an inch  long was placed on the auctioneer's  desk. Directly the sale, began the  candle was lighted. So long as it continued to burn bidding went on merrily, but the instant the flame died  away the goods were knocked down to  the last bidder.  In this manner immense consignments of silks, indigo, spices and so  forth were disposed of, thousands of  pounds changing hands during the  burning of the inch of candle.  Before the auction began a list was  read over of the names of persons not  permitted "to bid at the candle." This  contained tne names of those who had  failed to pay their debts or had in any  way wronged the company, who  "blacklisted"  them  in  consequence.  Two Kinds of Kisses.

Did you ever observe whether you  breathe through the mouth or nostrils?  It makes a wonderful difference. When  we talk we are forced to breathe  through the mouth, says the Philadelphia Inquirer. When not speaking the  lips should be well closed, and the  breathing should be entirely by the  nostrils, but this is not all. The habit  of slow, measured, deep breathing that  covers the entire lung surface is of  more value and importance than you  will ever believe until you have tried  it, and when you have established the   ^habitjif3.re.athing.JnJ;his���������mann_er_you,  'will say some remarkable things in its  favor.

The lungs are a kind or  furnace, in which the oxygen of the  air is consumed and combined with  other elements, n process necessary te  life, the perfection of which depends  upon the purity of the air and the manner of inhaling it.
