' ' Grantham, B.O,    .-  ,* Editor 'Cumberland News,  Sir,-���������It is with, much dusatiiifaotioa to'  many of the incoming businew men and  ���������tenidenta that tbe war tax has been forced  on the tax-payers of B.O. It will force  many of the business men, money-londeri,  and farmers out of the oonntry, or to the  wall. It is an indireot tax of 2 per oent. X  pay one per bent, on the face, value of my  estate and, business, and stock shares in a.  butter factory. Now the said faotery ia  'assessed, and I pay my Bhare of one per  oent on the valuation, thus I am paying two-  per oent. Or, if I bave $500 borrowed oa  my land, and $600 on my personal property,  I am assessed iaoo value for all my belong*  ingn at (ne per oent. My neighbour, the  money-lender, 1b also aaseisod foi the $1000>  and thus the Government gets an indirect  tax of two per cent. That is what may he  termed a war tax, Now if this is allowed  to f*o on it will leave a vory bad effbot oa  tho ohar������otera of the people of tbe Prov-noe  and will paralyze businoss and will oansa  the young men that aro saving their money  to have it safely deposited outside the Pro*  vinoo. Now, if the Government had been  the Government of the people this would  not have happened. It is a great drawback  to the Province that no muoh land wm  grauted free of taxation to oue man.

Then  hardly   havo been called  friends    at  tint time.  Almost as soon as she left school  Isabella Morris married Mr. James  Thistleby, aud I lost sight of her for  several years.  It was purely a love match, I bo-  lieve, and thoy were very happy together, until one sad week, whilst  they were traveling in Italy, when  Mr. Thistleby caught a sort of low  typhoid fever which happened to be |  very prevalent in -Turin, where they  were staying, and died alter a few  days' illness.  It was during the first year of hei*  widowhood that I agaig met ihy old  schoolfellow. She was at that time  in very low spirits and in bad  health. I did my best to cheer and  comfort her, and after a time she recovered her strength, and with it lier  natural cheerfulness and liveliness.  Sho became warmly attached to me.  Wo had now been fast friends for  more than three years. Bella; wan  very kind to mo. She was a wealthy  little widow, with a nice house in  town besides the villa at SeacliH;  and it was her greatest delight to  load.hor poverty-stricken friend with  ���������presents and kindness.  Every year I spent as much timo  as I could spare from my old father  with her; either in London or at  Seacliff; and sometimes she paid vs������  a visit, which, considering, the many  discomforts in my home compared  with tho luxurious plenty in her  own, was certainly very good and  unselfish of her.:  Curiously enough,, in all the time  that we had been friends, although  she talked of him perpetually, I had  never seen her husband's youngest  brother, Mark Thistffeby. Hec had  been a good deal abroad with:, hia  regiment, and when at hoxne on  leave I had never happened to meet  him. But now he was coming down  to Seaclifl to stay with his sister-in-  law, and this very evening I was toc  behold this paragon at last.  I never like other people's paragons,. As a rule they do not answer  in the least to one's own expectations, or ,to their freinds' enthusiastic descriptions of them. They are  generally perfectly commonplace and  uninteresting, and one wonders what  there can bo to admire jii them:  Lincolnshire has tlie biggest British  farm. Over two thousand acres arc  "under plough. 'Hie second largest is  near Coldstream.

CHASE'S SOONEY-LIVER PILLS.  When you think of the pain and  suffering which 'accompany backache,  rhoumatisin, lumbago, stone in the  kidneys and bladder; when, you think  of the dreadful fatality of Bright's  disease, dropsy, diabetes and apoplexy, you inayNvell wonder why people neglect to keep the kidneys in  perfect order, for all these ailments  are, the direct result of deranged kidneys.       ,'���������',,'   '.'-  Once the' kidneys fail to filter  from tho blood the impure, and nais-  onous waste 'matter there Ls trouble  of a painful and' dangerous' nature.  Among the first symptoms are backache, weak, lame back, pains in the  logs and sides, deposits in:<the urine,  impaired digestion', loss of flesh,  energy and ambition, stiffness and  soreness in the joints and feelings of  weariness 'anil lassitude.  Prevention is always better than  cure, and honce the advisability of  using Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills  011 the very first indication of such  .derangement:'  Whether to prevent or  curo. Dr. 'Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills  aro tho most effective treatment you  can obtain, for besides their Ctttecx.  and specific action on tho kidneys,,  they keep thc bowels regular, and the  liver active, and hence purify the  system and remove the cause of bis-  ease.   .  This medicine has long since proven its right to first placo as a cur������  for the complicated and sorious do-  rangeinants of tho filtering and excretory organs. It has the largest  sale and is. endorsed by moro people  than any similar treatment. ' $^>u  can depend on it absolutely to bring  prompt relief and lasting cure. In  view of those facts it is a waste of  time and money and a risk to lifo itself to triflo with now and uatrRui  remedies when Dr. Chase's Kidnoy-  Liver Pills are at hand.

The wedding  ���������was to be just after Easter, when all  was white lilies and opening buds. It  was the only true time of the year for  bridals,-Rex. bad said, when the bride  herself was young and fair as one of  the golden hearted lilies.  And it had ended before even the  storms of February bad passed. She  had almost forgotten the cause, it bad  been so trivial���������a word dropped, in jest  of nn old sweetheart whom he had met  by chance at a reception.

Beatrice was speaking, her voice low  snd sweet mid tremulous,  "Por bettor, for worse; for richer, for  fooror', in ���������letnem find in b-������������11h. until  -death do us part."  The glorious, sacred word* thrilled  her with the fullness of their meaning.  This was the row she would have  taken for love of hlra. Her lore hnd  beon strong enough then. At she  gated at bim sho knew It wat as strong  now.  ���������Till death do us part" And she had  thrown aside her trot* at carelessly  se (he lilies would be cast tilde when  their color and fragrance were gone,  It wti over befort tht mlliid tt  She kissed Beatrice, standing, tall and  slender and proud eyed, in her white  satin beside her husband, and went  out into the library, away from tho  crush of people and the laughter and  gayety. It was quiet in the cool, deserted room. There would be an interval of a few minutes before the reception, and she hoped she would not  be missed. A. divan stood in one corner, half concealed by a tall Persian  screen, and she sought its shelter Instinctively.  He had remembered. She kuew that  he had by the look in his eyes, but  there had been no tenderness or regret  there, merely grave," disinterested recognition. She closed her eyes as if to  keep back the tears that filled them,  and laid her head on the pile of sdft  cushions back of her. The shower bouquet fell on the rug at ber feet. She  did not care. It all seemed a mockery  of their love and faith and broken  troth���������the gladness of another's bridal  and they two meeting as strangers.  Some one entered the room, hesitated and walked deliberately over to the  screened divan. She knew his step before he stood beside her.  "Mrs. Langdon sent me to find you."  he said,   "like wants yon."  How queer it was to hear Beatrice  called Mrs. Langdon. She almost had  to think a moment to know whom he  meant.  "I will come at once." she answered,  and stooped for the flowers.  He lifted them for her, end their  hands met  ���������'Noll!" he exclaimed as hi? saw thnt  she had been crying. "Nell, what is  it?"  She tried to be dignified and brave.  "Nothing, nothing at all. -Please go  away."  -'You've been crying."  "Please go away."-  "I won't. At least oot unl 11 I know  what the trouble'is."  She was silent.  "Ls it because I am here, and you are  angry?"  "I -am not angry." she said almost  eagerly.   "Not a bit.    Only"���������  "Only what?"  "I didn't expect to see you," she faltered, not meeting his gaze. "And  when I did see you���������why, it was just  unexpected; that was all."  "Did you come here to cry over the  unexpected?"  _ Jghe rose indignantly. He did not  have the slightest right in the world"  to question her so. She would , not  listen to it.  "I wish to go to Mrs. Langdon,  please," she said. ' ,.."  "Don't go, Nell. She doesn't want  you very much. I asked where you  were, and sho told me to find you.' It  was I who wanted you really."  "But I want to go."  Ho bent toward her with pleading  eyes.  "Nell, didn't it make you think of  anything else���������Nell; the flowers and  music and what they wero saying?  Why, whon I heard Langdon saying  all that about lovo and cherlsb and  forsake and all the rest of It I just  wanted to gather you up In tny arms  before everybody and say them too.  Didn't It make you remember? Didn't  you alrooBt wish It wero you and ine,  sweetheart?"  Sbe bowed ber head oyer the lilies  In silence.  "I didn't mean to tell you," ho went  on. "1 only wanted to see you ulone  and speak to you and hear your voice,  don't you understand? It Isn't, nn appeal or regrets, Nell. I wouldn't bother  you with that sort of thing. It's only  the remembrance of It nil nnd wish it  bad been you and me, dear."  Ho stood aside to let her pass, but  she did aot move, only looked ut him  with the old love In lier eyos.  "I'm glad you came. Rox," she said  softly.   "I wished It too."  Strict ICtlqticM*.  A youthful olllcer In the United  States navy is Inclined to be very ex-  net In the observance of etiquette proscribed.by regulations. The Now York  Tribune relates how this tendency led  ouo such officer to rebuke his own  father, who Is also nu olllcer.  Tlie son, soon after he had received  his flrst commission, was on duty at  the New York navy yard, and the  father, who had the coiuiiinnil of a vessel that had just been put Into commission, was anxious to get his provisions on board that re might get  nwny on his cruise. As tbe captain  was passing through the navy yard to  call on tho column iidtint of tho station  be saw his son, lu uniform, walking  toward his henilqiiaftora In tho storehouse nnd shouted "Henry!" two or  threw times, but Unl uot mce'v* any  response.  Flually the son turned about and ssM  In n dignified tone:  "Are you addressing me. air?"  "Vrs," repllod tbe father. "1 acnt tn  d reqalsltlou for my stores, nnd I wish  you would hurry It through bo that I  can have the tblags delivered as  promptly at possible, for I am anxious  to get to sen."  "Very well," replied the young of-  deer. "I will look Into the matter, bwt  please bear lu mind tbat when 1 am on  duty I am to be addressed at mister or  by ray naval title. When I am at home  or at some unoflJclnl affair I am Henry  or anything you please."  That the father recognized the propriety of this fine distinction was  shown afterward by his often telling  the story at his own expense.  A Bopeleaa Case.  A Mr. X. wished to have a telephone  put in his bouse, but his aged mother  vigorously protested against it  "Robert" ebe said, "if you bring one  of those dreadful tilings in here I'll  never close my eyes for fear it may  break out and sweep us all into eternity and us not a bit the wiser."

But the timid old "lady lowered her  spectacles nnd, looking at him over the  rims thereof, said:  "You need not try to make a fool of  me, Robert I perhaps don't know  much, but I do know that the typhoon  ls the emperor of Japan!"

S. N..  was in love.  That it was an attack of cadet love  his classmates emphatically denied. At  Annapolis the accepted proverb is "cadet Jove is akin to calf love," and they  could not detect symptoms of tbo latter  malady in Itufus.  The fact that he was in love was  evinced when Iteardon. his roommate,  came suddenly upon the young man in  a reverie of which the inside boards of  his locker door seemed to be the object  Reardon coughed and otherwise made  his presence known. If Rufus had been  caught in the act of scaling the wall he  could not have exhibited a more guilty  expression. For the first time in their  acquaintance Reardon saw the big lieutenant blush liko a schoolgirl. His color  rivaled the auburn of his hair, from  which he derived his sobriquet.  A photograph of a gti'l hhng on the  inner side.of the locker door. The usual  array of athletes, family portraits or  footlight favorites was absent This  picture alone adorned the space.  Reardon looked at the picture for a  minute. "Studying girlology, Rufus?"  he asked to break the awkward silence.  , "Looks like it, doesn't it?" Rufus'  embarrassment was evident  "It needs study, old man. A fellow  must study, it carefully, and even then  he often 'flunks' when the test comes.",  "This species needs it," admitted Rufus, looking up at the face iu the photograph.  "Yes," said Reardon In a slightly interrogative tone. He did not want to  seem curious.  "She���������it's Bess, you know���������writes me  that she will be unable to come to the  farewell hop. She haa a previous engagement, she says."  "Perhaps she has," Reardon suggested.by way of consolation, although the  Idea seemed ludicrous to him.   A previous engagement "when "iHeTSunapolIs"  farewell hop was in question!  "Well, but she couldn't man���������that is,  we have talked of it the whole year���������  and when I was at home on the last  leave we���������well, Reardon, we sort of  fixed things up, you know," confessed  Rufus, the deep red dodging through  his skin again.' . "And she said she  would be down for tho hop and to our  graduation. I suppose it's her woman's prerogative to change ber mind,  but"���������  Itufus hesitated.  "I understand, old ifian. It's a bit  rough on a fellow. She may explain  later." lleardon felt awkward In tho  role of sympathizer. It was such a foreign element in his relation wltb Rufus.  "There's one little thread of possibility in some nonsense wbich has passed  between ns that might explain matters  to roe; but, oh, It is such an absurd,  such an utterly impossible, reason, that  I would not suggest Jt to her."  Rufus was silent. Should he put into words the foolish little matter which  had been weighing upon bis mind?  lleardon looked at hlra oxpectontly.  "Yon-- know, Iteardon, how we fellows always Joko nnd laugh about tho  necessity of mi vol officers mnrrjlng  money. Yeu rcnlitse that on every occasion we give vent tn the time worn  declaration thnt we must have a girl  with capital, I, llks tbe rest of you,  have done it, ainJ-well, Boat wns qualified in that direction, though it never  occurred to me at the time.

G. McClure      M  1  The rain was falling ia torrents as  the congregation came out of the littlo  charch at Auburn. Not a cloud had  marred the clearness of the sky when  tho sexton pulled the time worn bell  rope to call the good people to sea-vice,  and it was not surprising that the fair  sox were arrayed in their smart spring  frocks and bonnets.  Tbo women tucked up their skirts  and huddled together on tho shallow  perch., while'the men made hasty dashes through tho rain to nearby homes  for umbrellas or to the old fashioned  top buggies in which-.'the*.' had driven  to church.' They returned laden with  protection of some kind for the frills  aud flounces.  "Land sakes, -Inoii, whatever 'II you  do?" asked a prim looking old lady In  black of a pretty girl in a pale blup  frsck at ber side. "You'll never walk  that two mile in this rain and iu that  get up."  Inez Taylor looked a uxiously out at  the willful little raindrops dancing on  the board walks. "I'll just wait here  until it's over, Aunt Betty," sbe answered, but her pretty blue eyes looked ready to help,tlio rain with their  c  I  N13D  TUO'OGHT  A   NICK JUSST UNPER THE  TMHS8 WOULD UK GOOD.  tears. She was thinking of the mud  I'll rough which alio ufust walk even  when.tbe rain ceased, nnd she looked  dawn sadly at her dainty French heeled boots aikl tho billowy rullles of her  new spring linery.  As the rain poured ou nn old, white  borne attached to nn equally ancient  black buggy stopped in front of tbo  church. The occupant, a young man,  prilled from bout-utb the seat some  sido curtains and prepared to put thorn  on.  "Well, I'm blessed if thut ain't Robert mavis!" cried Aunt Betty. "Robert, eh, Robert, come"���������  "Deu't, Aunt Hetty," interrupted  Ino** quickly as sbe drew bade bite  the church door. But she was too  lute. Tho young uau had heard and  was en the porch In a minute.  "Bebert, you're Ju������t the man we  want. You cun take Inez* home, for  you're it-goln* right by tho house.  Ain't It fortunate?" Aunt Botty might  bare observed from tbe expression of  her niece's fnco mid the somewhat embarrassed attitude of the young man  thai they did nol agree wltb her,  "I shall bo only too glad, Mrs. With-  erby, to drlvo you .tnd Miss ino?* borne.  Old Ned Is slow, but he gets thoro In  time," said tho young imin, looking directly at the elder vvomau aud avoiding  iness's eyes.  "Oh. but I ain't: a-goia' homo. I'm  a-goln' to step right uerout tlie way to  take dinner with Susan uml Matilda,  and,vou and Inez will have iuoiu room  anyhow. That's ti dear boy." She patted lilm ull'ectluuatoly on thu nrm; aha  could not reach the big, broad shoul-  dors. ' "My sake*, but you aro n-grow-  in', Robert I How's your mother? Come,  lues*., lot me ace you started home."  Aunt Betty, womanlike, naked more  questions thnn sho expected to have an-  swortMi.  luer. Uivu bavk iu't* Ike cuuiuh.  "Aunt Betty, I can watt until tbo rain  is over nnd not bother Mr. Davis," she  wild, averting her eyes from the young  man, who stood awkward aud silent.  "Nonsonso, child I Am it you una Robert hadn't driven home together many  n time. Bother, Indeed? Come away,  child,"  Auni Betty wn* perfectly right. They  Iind driven together many n time, and  perhaps if the old white horse could  talk he might add that the conversation ho overheard on ilu'������������ omit-tluiie  would not convey tbe Impression tbat  ���������ltbri* one wat "bothered." But It wot  fully a month since he had logged  along before his handsome young master and the fair Inez, whom ho had  ventured to think was his mistress to  be.  "Como, Inez," said Bob, lookiug into  her eyes for the .first time.  "Tery well: I suppose I must," she  replied, tucking up her skirt and stepping ahead of him. He thought she  had never looked so pretty, a little  petulent pout was becoming to Inez;  "Tnck in her dress, Robert." said  Aunt Betty when the young people  wore in'the seat "and don't let her  spoil her bonnet  Goodby."  The D*<-terfnir of tlie rnJndronn od tbe  bnggy top and the splashing of oiu  Ned's hoofs in the muddy road were the  only sounds which broko the silence in  the vehicle. Neither one had spoken.  After awhile Bob Davis leaned toward  his fair companion aud, taking her  hand, said, "I'm sorry, Inez, that you  had to come with me against your  wishes, but it could uot be"���������  "So am I, very sorry indeed. Mr.  Davis." she interrupted, pulling ber  hand from him. "Nothing further  need be said."  They lapsed into silence again. Bob  thought of tho many times she had not  been reluctant to drive with bim and  a certain moonlight night not, so long  since when she had put ber pretty  head on his shoulder and told him he  might hold the reins of life for her always. Ho thought, too, of another  night when they had quarreled and of  how she took the ribbons from his  hands and urged Ned to hurry, so she  might be soon rid of iiis company, she  said. He knew she did not mean it  She was angry and they were both  stubborn.        ,  "Inez," he began again, "won't  you"���������  "No, I won't do any thing you ask.  Mr. Davis. Please-'hurry.-' I, wish to  get home." And Inez moved farther  into the corner of the seat. She was  provoked' to think they had met in  this way, and, while she was longing  to be friends with him again, sho also  wanted him to apologize for all the  cross things he had said to ber on that  night and, yes, for all she had said too.  She wanted to see .how,-long he would  wait and this chance meeting had  spoiled it all. "';, ;,-'  "Get up, Ned*, get up," said Bob,  touching his faithful old friend lightly  with the Avhip. But Ned, who had a  few ideas of his own, thought a nice  little rest under the dripping trees  *wTOia~i5fTrioT'nrtM^  cidentally help along matters behind  him and refused to-move.".''He bad  balked. It-was uot the first time,,and  both the occupants of the buggy knpw  what it meant Ned would go when'he  was ready, and not until thea. Perhaps both minds remembered an occasion whon one of Ned's tantrums was  a welcome accident  "Tills is most annoying," said Inez,  looking ready to cry-  "Yes? Ned is stubborn too." Bob  placed a decided accent on the last  word.  Inoa bit her lip; Why did be not  apologize?  "I shall get out and walk," she sdld  after Bob had urged Ned in vain to  trot along.  "Don't be foolish, Inez," said Bob a  little .crossly.' "I will get out myself  if my company'is so very distasteful  to you." And, throwing back the rubber robe, he prepared to got out The  ralu wns comlug down as persistently  as ovor, and he stopped to turn up his  collar nnd trousers. As ho placed his  toot on tho step to alight Inez caught  the end of his coat.  "Bob, you'll got wetl" she cried, pulling at, his cent, He did not turn around  nnd stopped out Into tho mud and rain,  jerking his coat from her a little roughly, She wits ready to cry.  ���������That's hotter thnn free-sing," he retorted.  "Plense. please come hack, Bob," nud  lxio-9 burst into tours. That settled It.  "Iner, sweetheart, I'm n brute. I  k-now It.

For instance, such a course is strictly  Illegal, aud the government could step  in at uny time aud .demand the pay'  ment of .1 heavy fine; nnd, further  more, if the Individual who changed  his name without consulting- anybody  happened to ceme Jn for a large sum  of money unexpectedly the authorities  would decline to recogulKe his claim  if ho had failed to pay the fees due to  the- heralds' college for assumlug a  name uot given in baptism.  There aro two ways of changing  your name, und they are both rather  costly. One method Is to bave a private act of parliament passed for your  benefit. This course Is generally followed only by peers nud people to  whom money is no object, Tor it costs  ������750. This nearly all goes in fees to  minor officials for bringing your case  before the legislature, inasmuch as the  nccual passing of the bill costs practically nothing. And tho only advantage you will gnin from this exy^nsive  way of going to wort is that inquiries  will not be made into your past history,  which by the other alternative are unavoidable.  The usual method adopted for legally  changing the name ia somewhat tedious, if less costly, and you must have  very substantial reasons for so doing  or your claim will not be allowed. If,  for instance, you inherit property  which makes it conditional that you  change your name you can do so on  payment of about ������30 In fees.  In the first place you must communicate with the home secretary,  who. If he conulders your claim valid,  will refer you to the heralds' college  and tlie king of arms. ' These. officials  will make: full inquiries'-into your his-,  tory and satisfy ' themselves beyond  question tbat your reason for wishing  to make the change is in every way  legitimate. .This done, they will again  communicate with the home secretary.  who will lay your claim before the  king, for he alone has power to au-  foerize the change being mado. "S*ret**-  tvinlly, after some months of waiting.  -ron-wHl-boyinforined._by_t.ue heralds'  college that his majesty has approved  of your claim and the change of name  is published in a remote corner of the  London'Gazette.  ' Finally It is worthy of mention that  no one can hold, u public appointment  nndor government who has changed  his name without, the consent of the  king, however brilliant may have been  his services to the country. The reason  tor this Is rather curious. The mime'  given you at your baptism is tn tlieory  ratified by the sovereign ns head of thu  church, and by aesumlug another on  your own responsibility you nre deliberately breaking u law of tlie land.���������  Loudon Tit-Blts.

It must  be put, like all other   professions,  on a scientific basis, and  not left  to chance.    The business of the  public school is the training of the  miud, the development of its forces  its reasoning faculties, its power of  discrimination.      With the right  sort of teacher, the moral training  will go along with the intellectual.  By the present school system the  effort is made to make the schools  ���������vehicles of certain fadB and reforms  to divert them from their pimple  purpose and turn them into propagandas of schemes which are often very badly digested and illusory.   The already inwded school  curriculum    has   been   interfered  with by text books on phyeiology  ���������wheh are prepared  with  the soJe  idea of tenoning the dangers  oi ai-  ���������cohol.     The.-e   are   not scientific  books; they are not, as a rule, true;  they are exaggerated to an extent  that must react   upon any sane  mind that is forced to feed on them.  A really honest book prepared  by  an expert, is rejected.    The truth  ��������� is-not-soughL.butxather _jjjLn__effect  -to raise in the young mind a sort  of te ior.

The pre-  .-cription is that the encrg es of ihe  t -achers are to be bent upon this  task so many hours duiing the  week; that the pupils are to be forced into a study of diseased conditions, to the exclusion of more  wholsome study. Now, as a matter oi fact, the mind is improved  by the Btudy of good, and not of  evil. It is the good we wish to implant, rather than tho knowledge  of evil. We do not question the  motives of those engaged in the  cru.ade against .intoxicants. Before The visible evils of intemperance anything else seems to them  of small account in education.
