Suddenly his gaze caught  Peggy at the crossing, fixed itself upon  the lace cravat at her throat, and then,  with a spring as alert as that of any  .monkey throwing himself out of tree  by hia tail this mirror of fashion thrust  his head out at window, jerked his  coachman's arm, said In a voice not  loud, but piercing:  "Worthing, run down the young gentleman at the crossing. Don't'hurt him,  but run him down, an' I'll give you 20  shillings!" He then sank back again  amid the pillows.  No sooner said than done.  Just at the Instant when Peggy recalled her position and was bewildercd-  ly wondering where sbe had wandered  to, clutching her bundle and all of  a muddle, click! grazed coach wheels  against her shins, cock went her hat  into the puddle; but, heaven be praised,.  her wig clung, and she clung to her  bundle. Out of coach the pink brocade  gentleman, down from the rumble his  footman, pick up Lady Peggy, hat and  all, rubbing the mud out of her silk  stockings, clapping ber hands; yet relented she not from the bundle, and all  a-breath the loller cries: ;  "Into my coach, sir. I do humbly  crave pardon, sir; I do indeed. I'll  not take no for an answer, sir, not by  my oath..:. Such a damage from one  gentleman to another, sir, demands all  the reparation possible,' sir."

At which Peggy laughed the more  heartily, as that she felt the paper beneath her coat skirts crack wider, and  was spent wondering what she should  do when they should reach Peter's  Court and when she might be able to  get iuto her Levantine once again.  of such courage and skin at cards, saddle or the dance." ,  The wbiqh as he read it'gave Sir  Percy no great food for congratulation,  but the rather caused him to sink into  a kind of melancholy from which no  effort of his companion could arouse  him. Like a dullard he sat, staring at  the print or the walls the livelong day  and far into the night, waiting for  Grigson's re turn and beside himself  with a silent, jealous fury as each new  entrance to the coffee room gave his  A-visltm- in tne neiguuornooo r* Mr.  Grigson turns on his heel and chirrups  for his mount ''...''  "No," returns Cbockey, "she ain't"  "Well, whereabouts is she? For. if  It's as far as the Injies, Grigson's bound  to find her and deliver this love letter!"       _ .': '  "I don't know .where she is, sir,"  whimpers Chock. (  "There, there! Don't be a-cryhi* and  a-sobbln', duckie. I ain't gone yet. Go  ask his1 lordship the address, bring me  tleinan springs in after her, andTUe"  footmen jump up, and the whip cracks,  and off they whirl before she can open  her mouth.  "Mr. Brummel, at your service, sir,"  continues he, feeling of Peg's, palm,  noting the wound at her wrist and the  pallor of her face which shines even  through the coffee stains. "We're en  route to Peter's Court, where my surgeon'.'., shall attend youV ,!Slife, sir,  'yo'jitfe. hqt Vburt, Pm sure! I told  Wbrthing not to endanger a hair of  your head,; and it's impossible he  should have disobeyed me."  Peggy hears this singular string of  speeches, and, although stunned a bit  and not a little alarmed in her mind,  ���������he has country breeding at her back  an^. such a, robust constitution as ral-  Hen/On the spot.  . "i'd  be obliged.  Mr.  Brummel,  If  you'd set me down at once, sir. I'm  none the worse, and I've business of  import calling me far hence and with  dispatch."  ''Never, sir, never!" returns Beau  Brummel, with (in Joiprosslve wave of  his jeweled'Jiarid.'i "Zounds, sir, i had  yog spilled to get me the pattern and  fashion of tying your cravat from you������  and split me if ,1 let you go until I've  mastered that adorable knot!

SOMEWHAT later in the day. as  the sun peeped In at the narrow  windows of Kennastou's garret , In Lark lane, It shone  straight down upon the face of Peg's  twin and also upon that of Sir Percy  de Bohun, just returned, after a tub  and a grooming at the hands of his  faithful man Grigsou, who even now  was performing like offices for the  young host. The other gentlemen had  long since been set upon their legs aud  fetched off to their homes by their  men.  Percy held bis chin between his  palms, his elbows resting upon the table, where cards and glasses still littered.  " 'Sdeath, Kennaston!" cries he without moving..."I can live this fashion no  longer! To be shot* like, a partridge,  would be better.. Flouted, by Peggy, derided by this upstart, Sir Robin, who,  by my life, is a pretty fellow, all said  and done, is past endurance. Give me  a pistol, Grigson, and I'll put an end of  myself now and hero." ,  To this passionate declaration Kennaston merely makes answer by lifting  an arm above the tub, waving it in the  air, and as Grigson scrubs himVdown  wagging his wet bead and remarking:  "Don't be ridiculous, Percy, and,  pray, hold your peace, since I am at  this moment composing an ode to my  mistress' smile."  "Your mistress be. hanged-, sir! What  know you of love to sit in a tub and  make verses to her?"  "I know enough oft." sighs the host,  "to harve been in like case with yourself  any time this twelvemonth, and 'tis a  own particular version of Sir Robin's J a mug of ale, and I'll give you a kiss."  vogue. I    "Drat   you,   sir!"   cries   Chockey.  The real little Sir Robin, meanwhile  "Don't you be talkln' like that!"   Yet  on his journey down to Kennaston In! sidles she quite cozlly In the encircling  search of my Lady Peggy, had got  some threo hours' start of the faithful  Grigson, and even now he for the first  time in his life stood in the long, bare j Is."  drawing room of Kennaston castle tip-     "What!  toeing to the mirror, pulling his wig  thp  this way and that in instant expectation of beholding the object of his passion and rewarding her for her devotion to him, so manifested in the person of the gentlemanly "incognito" of  his last night's, experience.  Hark!   Yes, her footstep on the stair,  arm of the admirable Grigson.  "His lordship nor her ladyship nor  no one else knows where my mistress  Eloped!  Scuttled!    Flown  nest!    When?    How?    Where?"  cries. Sir Percy's man, thunderstruck.  "She ain't gone with Sir Percyl   Can  It be with Sir Robin McTart?"  Chockey shook her head vigorously.  "Look a-here," says Grigson, now regarding the girl attentively.   "Dash it  all, but you knows where she is.. Tell  the swish of female jgarments, a halt [ me and I'll give you two kisses and  at tlie door. Sir Robin minced the  length of the room and, reaching the  entrance, found himself face to face  with Chockey.  "Your mistress, bud, your mistress!  Here!" thriftily pressing a shilling into  Chock's palnC "Go tell her I am consumed with impatience and eaten up  ������10 to boot."  "Oh, sir," cries Chock, pushing away  both kisses and pounds with one and  the> same hand, "I does know-*-least-  ways I knows my young lady's up in  London, but whereabouts in that pit of  sin and willalny I can't say, nor who  she's with, nor how��������� long she's goin' to  with desire for a glimpse of her lady-[stop.

"She's a coquette, sir, and at  bottom adores you as does the fish the  bait tho while she plays and sidles  round it, being sure in the end she'll  swallow it, hook and all."  "Very'fine, i' faith, yet while I sigh  you're the one she smiles upon. Oh,  Percy, had I but a fortune! Could I  but make my name in letters! Then  perchance I'd stand my chance. But  as 'tis"��������� Peg's twin fetches a sigh  that sends the water splashing about  the wine stained floor.  "As 'tis, sir, counsel me, an you lov#  me. Shall I hie me to Kennaston and  wait upon your sister?"  "Write her a letter of fire and sword  and blood and famine; stuff it full of  oaths, protests, suicides, murders, as is  a Christmas pudding of plums.  There's quill, Ink and paper to your  hnnd."  "I'll do It nnd send it by Grigson on  my fastest horse this dny. I should  havo the answer before Friday."  "Aye, you should," allows the host,  with nn evident reservation. "Now. for  goodness' sake, sir, stop cackling and  let mo finish:my ode."  Which he did a-sIUIng in his bath,  whllo Grigson dressed his wig.  Tho toilet and the letter nnd tne  poom wore all three finished at once,  Md without moro ado Sir Percy dispatched his man wltb tbo missive te  Lady Peggy.  "Como not bnck until you deliver It  In person," quoth the lover, "mi you  show yourself minus, nn answer, I'll  ship you to tho colonics by tbo next  packet."  After seeing bim off the two young  men repaired to tho coffoo houso thoy  frequented, nnd thero tho llrst news  thnt greeted them wns an account, exaggerated to the lust degree, a* wai  the fashion of those times ns well na  thoso, of "Lndy I).

"What ails the wench? Deaf?" cries  Sir Robin, pinching her arm, for which  he gets back a smart slap on his cheek.  "Tut, tut! What manners is that,  and you handsome enough to kiss?"  adds the litle' baronet diplomatically.  "Come, now, off, and implore Lady  Peggy to hasten."   ^  "Her ladyship's from home," finally  Chockey says.  "What! Not at Kennaston?" Sir  Robin's sharp eye cannot help peering  regretfully at the shilling Chockey  twirls in her fingers.  "In Kent  doubtless,  a-visiting her  godmother and  a-hoping  to  see  me  there.   Eh, in Kent?"  ~'il-don-t-knoWi-sir,���������- replies-theigirl,.  with a hint of tears in her voice.  "Don't know! What do you mean?"  exclaims Sir Robin suspiciously.  "I means, sir," fires up Chock, "that  my lady ain't by way of tellin' me  Pulling hi$ wig this way and that,  hor matters.

This horseman, too, pulled rein st  Kennaston, sprang from his saddle,  and, as Bickers hobbled up to tako bis  boast, Mr. Grigson, for 'twas bo, jumped up ou tbo steps and caught Chockey's apron string just as it was fluttering in the cloning Uout.

"Have you?" says Chock, looking  with admiring eyes upon tbo smart  livery of Mr. Gi'luwu, dust and mud  stnliifd though It was.  "Yes, straight from London town,  where, 'pon my life, there's no sweeter  mug than bors 1 sees before mo now."  "hawki" cries Chock, appeased, "But  my in Intro** U from home."  ".Not here?

"Amen," ejaculates Sir.Percy's man,  With fervor, at the same time fixing a  contemplative and shrewd eye on his  companion.  "Her ladyship up in town���������where,  With whom, you doesn't know; her father and mother thinks'she's in Kent,  and you're cocksure she ain't runned  away with Sir Robin McTart?"  "That I am!" cries the girl warmly.  JiLittle-squint-eyedjnonster!"   "Eh?" exclaims Mr. Grigson, who  had beheld the supposed Sir Robin at  Kennaston's rooms the night before  last and clearly recollected that no  such description fitted the slim, elegant handsome young buck who had  got a prick in the wrist from his own  master's rapier.  "Monster, I said," repeats the girl.  "Hist! I'll toll j'ou more," says she,  drawing close, hand over mouth.  "You've seen the puppy. He was here  anon a-askin' and a-tearln' as to where  my lady was."  Grigson stares.  "Aye, you must have mot bim on the  road not ten rods off.the castlo gates,  for as you galloped In tho undersized  cockatrice cantered out Lady Peggy  wed with him, indeed!"  Grigson is now (recalling his having  crossed a small, squint eyed gentleman  as he camo) morally certain that  Cbockey bus been well drilled in her  part and that Ladyt Teggy has indeed  run nwny up to Loudon >Vltb Sir Robin  McTart So much for his thoughts.

V     *  "Your pardon,'., sir, Mr. Brummel," ���������  quoth Peggy, while her maiden "heart  set off at such a race horse flutter as  it seemed must never quiet down, "but,  pray you, remember I am country bred,  unused to town ways, have never had >  a man to wait upon me in my life" (the  solemn truth) "and should never know  how to comport myself in such altered  conditions."  The Beau shrugged his shoulders In  the  French  fashion,  lifted  his eye-1  brows, thought 'twas amazing strange  that Sir Hector's son should have been  so ill educated and said:  "Your pleasure, sir, whilst under my  roof shall be mine, nor can I misdoubt  but that one who has had the geulus  to invent that tie is amply able,to array and perfume himself, even to the  dressing of his own wig."  "You flatter, sir; I protest!" answered  the guest "I await with impatience  the moment when, in cleaner case, I  may have the honor of instructing you  in the Intricacies of the knot you are  good enough to admire."  , With any number of bows the distinguished host closed the door, and  my Lady Peggy was left to herself.  For a moment she stood quite still,  her heart yet a-clapping madly in her  bosom, her eyes wandering about tho  princely roomin which she found herself and at last resting on the mirror  wherein was reflected her oo\vn slim  figure, tricked out in Kennaston's suit  of gray velvets and in the yellow wig,  which was indeed the counterpart of  the real Sir Robin's pate. Her countenance���������sure none would recognize it  since neither twin nor quondam suitor  had���������was dark with the coffee stains;  her eyes were ringed with sleeplessness aud unaccustomed wiue; her general aspect that of a young gentleman  very much the worse for whatever his  most recent experiences might havo  been.  Peg laughed, then she cried, then ran  to the door and fastened it securely,  then untied her bundle, when out fell  ,-nigbtrnil, green hood and kerchief,  powder, patch box, lavender, musk,  pins, needles, red, silken hose, Levantine  gown and veil -of brussels lace. She  shook the skirt out of its wrinkles, laid  -off���������her���������wig,_and_:broidered waistcoat,  unpinned her long plaited hair from its  coil and was stoutly making up her  mind to brave all, get into hor petticoats and confess everything to l^Ir.  Brummel; but as she was about fo  wash the dark stains from her faco  comes there a "rap-a-tap" at the door,  and Teg, dropping the ewer, calls out  fiercely: '  *   "Who's there?"  "An it please you, Sir Robin, Mr.  Brummel bids me say to you that Mr.  Chalk, the tailor, a person of the best  fashion, will have the honor of waiting upon you for your measurements  In a quarter of an hour, If you'll be  pleased to seo him then, or later."  Peg hesitated. There was a battle  fought within her those sixty seconds  wherein all thnt was noblest and best  struggled and strove to know which  wns tho right thing to do, nor could sho  determine, save that at second thought  of confiding hertsex to Mr. Brummel it  appeared to bor she could not.  "I shall be rendy to soo Chalk, X  thank you, In fifteen minutes, more or  less," bumming a tune wltb elaborate  carelessness, rolling up tbo Lovdutlne,  the hood, veil and nlghtrail Into a ball  and pitching thorn into tbo chest of  drawers; disposing tho powdor aud perfumes and pins on the dressing tublo,  throwing tho noodles and patches into  the fire, untying tho kercblof and taking out soap, scissors, brushes.

Editor and  Proprietor  of the  Swan  River Star.  ;  ��������� By contrast with the newer���������much  newer���������ierritories,r Manitoba is an  old established country. The general  belief concerning the province is that  during the last decade the work of  pioneering has been performed, ^nd  that the work of development has consumed the activities of Manitobans.  This, to a large extent, is true, but it  is certainly not the whole truth. The  opening  up  of  large  tracts of new  -country >-^such-aB-that,.for-instance.be-  tween Prince Albert and Edmonton,  or in the Lethbrldge country, or along  the Soo line, or the Prince Albert  branch, dr the country lying east and  xwest of the Calgary and Edmonton-  has not been going on in Manitoba for  the past ten years, and for sufficiently  obvious reasons. The older province  had its railway systems practically  completed long before that time, and  where railways were available settlement naturally followed, so that a  comparatively dense population was  to be found in Manitoba long before  Bimilar conditions could be expected  to obtain in the Territories, with their  vastly greater area and less comprehensive transportation facilities.  For these reasons, the northwestern  portion of the province of Manitoba  was almost as uninhabitated fifteen  years ago as in the days of Lord Selkirk. Settlers went Into the route now  occupied by the Northwestern branch  of the C.P.R. In those early days when  it was expected that it would be, the  lino of the new transcontinental road,  but north of that was a hilly, wood-  clad country, dotted with lakes, and  with a rich soil that only needed cultivation to make it famous as even the  Portage plains. But it remained, for  the reasons, somo of Which are set  forth above, uninhabitated while tho  whole of the remainder of the province  was comparatively densely populated.  Rut with tho building of the Dau*-  phln branch all this was changed. A  thriving agricultural community soon  sprung up, nourishing little towns  sprung into being, and tho fftmo of the  fertile Dauphin country wont abroad  through tho land, With the town camo  tho inovitablo advocato and publicity  agont, tho nowspapor, which heralded  far and wide tho many advantages of  tho district in which it was published.  And the success of the Dauphin country was followed an a natural soqttenco  by that of similar territory contiguous  'f  f  When the nerves ore weak  everything goes wrong.

The natural result of Dauphin's success was the establishment  of Swan River. ;i  Swan River sprung Into being with  the advent of the railway: Hardly had  the triumphant shriek of the pioneer  locomotive ceased to re-echo among  the Thunder Hill than hammer and  siaw were busy building the little town.  And, as usual, one of the first���������as a  matter of fact the fourth���������building  erected was a newspaper office. The  proverbial rapidity with which every  now western town harnesses to its advancement all the powers of the press  can hardly show a keener desire to  seize all the advantages of publicity  than Swan River.  The founder of the Swan River Star  was Mr. H, E. Glendenning, who as the  above paragraph shows, was one of  the first arivals in the town. For two  years he was editor, proprietor and  publisher, and the Star was instant in  season and out 'of season to advocate  the many advantages its editor seized  every occasion to proclaimV Mr. Glendenning believed in the Swan River  country with all the fervor of a pioneer. His activity on behalf of the district was Protean.  After two years of strenuous endeavor, Glendenning the Elder resigned, and Glendenning the Younger  reigned in his room and stead. The  Swan River pioneer had gone into real  estate and many other enterprises, ,and  these engrossed the whole of his time.  His-son, Mr. W. H. Glendenning, the  present proprietor, is a practical printer, having served his time in Ontario  on the Dundalk Herald. He assumed  control of the Star in 1902. Shortly  after taking over the managership he  took another important step, marrying  Miss E. Kennel, of Drdmore, Ont. ������������������*'  The conditions under which the  Swan River Star was started were  "suchnas^to^renderHmmediate-success-  improbable���������perhaps impossible. The  controlling factor of the success of  every newspaper is population. Without a field no paper can succeed. As a  means of publicity for the advantages  of district, the exploitation of which  was its main business, it was beyond  doubt a conspicuous success. No country paper ever did beter immigration  work for its district. But as a financial proposition the Star was no gold  mine. But Mr. Glendenning,, Sr.,  was made . Of what stun westerners call "good stuff." He "hung on"  and waited for the day of prosperity  for the ultimate coming of which none  had done so much as he. And in due  time came the reward of effort and  faith. Settlers continued to come in.  Business brightened in Swan River.  More merchants located there. Advertising patronage Increased, and the  subscribers became more numerous.  The Star had turned the corner and  passed Into the list of western country  newspaper properties tbat are paying  investments. Even yet It is not a bonanza. But it Is past the shoals, and  striking out all the, time for the open  sea.  Of the present editor, under whose  guidance the Star ls epch month showing steady improvement, there needs  but little to be said. Ho has a good  mechanical training, a "nose for news"  ���������that prime essential in the makeup  of any newspaper man, a belief in his  town and district, a knowledge of its  needs, and the confidence of its pooplo.  These, combined with industry, en-  orgy and ontorpriBe, are tho strong  foundations upon which he is building  up n successful business. Boyond this,  it needs but to say that ho is an unassuming, * capablo, publio spirited  citizen, with hosts of friends, and few,  if any, enemies, Ho ls doing in tho  northwest portion ot Manitoba what  othor nowspapor men nro doing every  whoro throughout tho West���������building  up and developing bis own locality,  and thus strengthening tbe Canadian  spirit and advancing tho Canadian  nationhood. To him, and such as he,  tho Dominion will forever owo a national debt, for they are tbo truo  moulders of Canadian destiny.

"Not exactly sick���������hut not feeling  flquite well. That's the spring feeling.  "The reason���������close confinement indoors  ������������������during the winter months, breathing  ithe impure air of badly ventilated  houses, offices and workshops. The  .trouble may manifest itself in a variable appetite, little pimples or eruptions  ���������.of the skin, a feeling of weariness, and  tperhaps an occasional headache, or a  twinge of neuralgia or rheumatism.  Perhaps you think the trouble will  pass away���������but ,|t won't unless you  drive it out of the system by putting  the blood right with a health-giving  tonic. And there is only one absolutely centain, blood-renowing, nerve-  restoring tonic���������Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills for Pale People. Thousands of  .���������grateful people have testified that  these pills are the best of all spring  medicines. They actually make new  ..blood; they brace the nerves and  strengthen every organ;of the body.  They make tired, depressed, ailing  men, women and children bi light, active and strong. Mrs. N. Ferguson,  , Ashfleld, N.S., says: "For the benefit it may be to others I take much  pleasure tin saying that I have found  wonderful benefit from the use of Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills. When I began  taking them I was so badly run  down that I could scarcely go about  the house. I was also troubled with  palpitation of the heart and weak  jspells, but the pills have fully r'e-  rstored me and I am now enjoying,better health than I ever expected to have  again."  If you want tp be healthy in spring  don't dose yourself with purgatives���������  they only weaken���������they can't cure.  Don't experiment with other so-called  tonics. Take Dr. Williams' Pink Pills  at once and see how quickly they will  Danish all spring ailments, and make  .you active and strong.

Thoy look, indued, about as cheerful as thu differential calculus, Thu  now member is willing enough to enjoy tho reputation of boltitf a sorious-  inlndod person, but ho doosn't fancy  having to work for It. He ls, in  abort, contont to take the bluo book  on trust, as most people are contont  to take, thoir motaphysics and thoir  ���������religion and their views about other  tilings they cannot under stand, xjoi  no one chine him for his deferential  neglect of what might improve his  mind and give him a headache. He  but follows the way of a large part  of the world, which is ready to vow  that Paradise Lost is a i great poem  without taking the trouble to wads  through it. Most of us have also  met the man who lends his voice to  Shakespeare and the Bible as a liberal education, without finding it  necessary to become familiar with  the objects of his * admiration. The  new member realizes that if ignorance is ever bliss, ignorance of forty-  five blue books ought to come under  that head. He ends his first session  by dumping the whole lot of them on  the floor, but not without a pang,  wo may feci sure, that so much valuable material *��������� should have to be left  behind.  The Sceptical Slag*.  As times goes on our member of  Parliament reaches the second or  sceptical stage, If he is in Opposition he arrives there more quickly.  Indeed, many members of the Opposition never get beyond this stage of  arrested development. They stick on  tho way to perfection like tho Chinese language or the anthropoid ape.  Acting on the principle that no good  can come out of Nazareth, they refuse to believe that even the Government, blue books can tell the  truth. They are not bitter toward  them.> Their style of criticism suggests that they would got out the  same kind of blue books themselves  if they had the chance, and that the  rules of the game permit a certain  amount of mystification and demand  a certain amount of credulity on the  part of those iyh<$ aro playing it.  For instance, the theatre could not  live a minute unless those who attend are favorably disposed toward  the illusion. This is the attitude of  the Opposition members toward a  blue book. He does not impugn it,  but he winks the a������her eye.. He does  not say it is a sham, but he would  have everyone know that, he is not  taken In. He would not break up  the game, but he is pleased to affect  a mellow cynicism toward all statements emanating from Government  sources. He does not protest that  the truth is not being told,5 but he  begs leave to doubt that the whole  truth is being revealed.  V.  Perout Belief.  In due courso comes the third stage  of opinion, that of devout belief   in  Foods and Food Products.  PROF. GRAY'S  LECTURE  BEFORE  THE NATIONAL HISTORY SOCIETY OF  MONTREAL.  Immense    Value    of   the    Electrical  Purification of Flour.  Prof. M. A. Gray, chemist, lectured  on 'Foods and Food Products/ in the  National History Society rooms at  Montreal,  The lecture was most exhaustive  and instructive, dealing with the  growth of wheat, its constituents and  the electrical treatment of flour. Mr.  Gray remarked that but little could be  said concerning the percentage of  nourishment contained in the ��������� different grades of Northwestern hard  wheat, as it varies from year to year.  Speaking of chemical experiment,  Mr. Gray pointed out what had been  done in this line in regard to wheat,  during the last1 ten or twelve years,  in the different experimental stations  of the "United States. It was but very  recently, however, that laboratories  had been esablished in connection  with flour mills, but they have already  demonstrated-their" utility.."  As to the purification of flour; by  electricity, the speaker remarked that  it is about two years since this method  was adoped, and the development has  been wonderful. A beautiful silvery  whiteness is produced by subjecting  flour, to air which has been passed  through a flaming electrical discharge.  The flour has also, as a consequence,  better keeping qualities and commands a better price. The Ogilvie  Flour Mills Company, he said, was the  only firm in Canada, and one of the  first in America, to make use of this  purifying and sterilizing process.  "the blue"books, or, at least, belief  strong enough to build arguments on  and to wax controversial. By this  time the member-has learned how to  read his blue book, as Carlyle says  history should bo read���������that is to  say, actively. Put yourself in tho  other man's place, and say what you  would have dono under tho same circumstances. In this frame of mind  the blue book reader gets behind each  item and imagines why such and  such a thing should be thus and so.  This is, much bettor than the actual  truth, -because one shapes it to suit  himself, and it need not be inconvenient. Under those conditions tho  most baffling bluo book renders up  its secrets; the Auditor-General's ro-  port becomes as positive as tho Encyclopedia Britannica, and oven the  estimates have tho intimato charm of  a romance in which one knows tho  characters, and is tickled to soo them  In print, Hn this state of esoteric  sympathy ono can visualize tho hoaps  of red gold In tho Dominion Treasury  and see the surplus evon under the  budget speech.

The one point on which doctors are unanimous.  But what causes the bowels to become constipated?  The inactivity of the liver.  Bile is nature's own carthartic and  so Ions as the liver is active in its  work of filtering bile from the blood  and passing it into the intestines,  thero is no trouble from constipated  bowels.  Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills cure  constipation by setting the liver  right.  This is the only means by which the  bowels can be regulated.  Salts and castor oil will effect a  motion of the boweis, but, once the  effects of tho dose passes oif, you will  be more constipated than ever.  They'fail to set the liver right.  By regulating the liver by use* of Dr.  Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills you ensure  a healthful action of the bowels and  so prevent and cure scores of ills,  such as indigestion, biliousness, constipation, kidney disorders, colds and  contagious diseases.  Mr. C. Fvlmmel; shoemaker, Western Hill, St Catharines, Ont., states:  ���������"I have used Dr. Chase's Kidney-  Liver Pills regularly for some time  and consider they are unsurpassed for  torpid liver, defective circulation, indigestion, headache and constipation,  as these were my troubles. I used  many remedies but got no relief until  I tried Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills,  and a few boxesc* of this preparation  have entirely cured me. I am not in  the l'.abit of endorsing any medicine  but In this case I cannot speak too  j highly in praise of Dr. Chase's Pills  for what Jthey have done for me."  Mr. D. C.

I tried  several kinds of plasters and other  kinds of medicines, but did not seem  to get any lasting benefit.

That is  two years ago now and as I said before  I havo had good health ever since 1  used Dodd's Kidney Pills."  Dodd's Kidney Pills cure once and  for all.

It is intended to put a double dally  service on the Deloraine line/leaving  Winnipeg and Deloraine morning and  afternoon. At the same time on the  Edmonton line there will be, in addition to the daily passenger train, a triweekly train, leaving Calgary and Edmonton In the afternoon three times  a week.

Danny deliberately chewed up his
ticket. When he had masticated it to
a pulpy condition he waited for the
conductor. He was rather sorry he
was not better acquainted with that
official's movements, for a chewed railroad tk&et is not a tasty morsel.
At last, after what seemed to be
hours of waiting, he caught sight of
a blue coat and brass buttons in the
far end of the car, and a moment later
he began to choke. The traveling man
across the aisle pounded bim upon the
back, and presently his gasps subsided.
vWhat's the matter?" demanded the
conductor, coming up, whereon Dan
let out a wail that would have shamed
the whistle of the powerful engine
"I swallowed most of me ticket," he
iobbed, "an' now I gotter walk all the
way to Pittsburg."
Sundry bits of pasteboard on the
floor furnished corroborative evidence,
but the conductor was adamant. '
"The gateman told me you had a
ticket to Newark," he declared firmly.
"You get off there."
"He's a liar," protested Dan, "and
ao're you!"
The conductor made a grab at his
collar, but the drummer interfered.
"Don't get gay with the kid," he
said. "You know very well you are
not telling the truth when you say
that you know where his ticket was
The conductor sized up the traveling man and became diplomatic; "I
can't let him ride," he;declared apologetically. "He's got to have a ticket
or he can't stay on the train."
"Two to Pittsburg," said the drummer, producing a mileage book.
The conductor punched twollips and
passed on. If a passenger wanted to
be taken in it was none of his business, especially when the passenger
stood almost six feet.
���The-drummer_turned__to...Dan. "Your
fare is paid," he said. "On the level;
where was your ticket for?"
"Newark," admitted Danny, "but dat
big stiff didn't know."

had been a burden to no one,   v
Six months later Dan was a -.-passenger in a car going to a summer park
and occupied a seat directly, behind

immediately classified %aa "Somers'

It was evident that things were not
as they would have them, for the talk
that float* back to Dan's keen ears
told him that her father objected to
Somers and that this was a clandestine
"Don't butt in." was one of Dan's
rules, and be was lost ln the crowd at
the trolley terminal before Somers had
bad a chance to recognize his one timo
protege. The band was good, and the
green grass was a most pleasant carpet, but the talk on the trolley rang in
Dan's ears.
The girl was old Henry Greyson's
daughter���he found that out���and
Greyson objected to Somers because
he thought hhn fast���the old type of
drummer. It was evident that Somers
took the matter as much to heart as
did the girl, and Dan was quite disgusted over the state of affairs.
Henry "Greyson was known everywhere in Pittsburg. The Greyson
building was one of the most modern
structures, end Greyson's interests
were as varied as they were enormous.
It was an easy matter to find bis office,
but a lot more difficult to get at the
man. Dan waited from 11 In the morning to 3 in the afternoon, and then
from a side door around the corner of
the hall from the main office the spare,
a|ert figure of the millionaire stepped
out.   Dan pounced upon him.
"Say, Mr. Greyson," lie demanded,
plunging into the midst of the business,
"I come to ask yer a favor."
Greyson's hand went to his trousers
pocket, and Dan's lips curled.
"Nixey," he said decidedly. "When I
want cash I earns it I want your

what help might be at hand.
"Fer a friend of mine," completed
Dan. "Y'see, Paul Somers was on. de
car yesterday, an' your gal was wid
him. I hearn him tell 'er you kicked
because he was no good. Say, dat's
dead wrong."
"Do you mean to say that my daughter was. with young Somers yesterday?"" demanded��� Greyson,���forgetting,
for the moment to whom he was talking.
"I was right behind 'em," declared
Greyson produced a ten dollar bill.
"Here's something for your trouble,"
he said. "If .you see them together
again let me know, and you may bave.
"G'wan, yet old geezer!", retorted
Dan. "Did yer s'pose I'd break a friend
like that? I wariter tell yer you're nutty about Mr. Somers. He's an- all Tighter. Didn't I see a dame try ter win
him out in N'York, an' didn't lie tell
her to chase herself? G'wan! Get

Pere ain't none better."
With a slight draft on his imagination ho told the old man of how Somers
had helped him to Pittsburg and how
when he was selling papers in New
York he had seen Somers often, and
how the man had done none of the
things with which be bad been charged
by other interested parties, There was
tho ring of truth in his tones, aud the
old man relented. He was accustomed
to forming bis own judgment, and be

A golf story comes from'Scotland,
where a couple of old antagonists met
oh a course every Saturday afternoon
to determine their own private championship for the week. They were all
"square" at the seventeenth, and tbe
loser of last week had just played his
third in the shape of a nice approach
to the green. Last week's winner
came up to his ball with grim purpose.
He had an easy pitch to the green, but
a number of young sheep were unconsciously browsing along the edge, all
oblivious of the Olympian contest that
was on the point of settlement. "Rin
