Tbe Loyal Orange Lodge Reunion was held on Friday at the  Cumberland Hall, when a large  number of Orangemen and their  guests sat down to a well-filled  board, the menu being all that  conld be desired. The Loyal Orange  Association ts formed by persons  desirous of supporting the principles and practices of the christian  religion, to maintain tbe laws and  constitution of the country, afford  assistance, to. distressed men.bers of  the association, and otherwise promote such laudable and benevolent  purposes as may tend to the due  ordering of religion and christian  charity, and the supremacy of law,  order and constitutional rights.  Its members associate in honor of  King William III, Prince of Orange  whose name they bear, and whose  imortal memory they hold in memory tbey hold in reverence, tending  as, he did, under Divine Providence  to the overthrow if the most op  pressive bigotry and the restoration  of pure religion and liberty. The  Orange Association lays not claim  to exclusive loyalty, or exclusive  Protestantism, but it admits no  man within its pale whose principles are not loyal and whose creed  is not Protestant. The Association  is constituted upon the broadest  principles of national freedom. It\  takes its stand ..upon the glorious  principles of the resolution of 1688.  It lays its foundation in the' field of  British, liberty ; -itf disdains the  badgeT'of~factionr~andf-knows~no;  emblem save "the altar x>f the  throne."  -A dance finished up the evening.

My  nerves were in a terrible condition.  I could not sleep and thc least sound  would startle, me. I tried several  medicines and tonic wines, but none,  of tiietii helped me. In fact I was  continually growing worse, and began  to despair of ow getting well again.  Ono day a friend called to see me  and strongly advised me to try Dr.  Williams Pink Kills.

"I believe that tho origin of the expressive bit of slang 'kickers' may be  found In the very lowest form of occupation any member of the bumau raca  follows," W. M. Robinson states.  "Between AVcrmsley's and St. Helen's,  In Cornwall, is an underground canul  connecting the lower levels of tho coal,  Hilncs at Wormsley's with the surf aw'  station at St. Helen's wlUch saves, a  great ileal cf money for the mine  owners in handling tbe coal, wbich ia  simply loaded on the barges lu the  mines and transported by 'the canal  under tho mountains to the harbor at  St. Helen's.

"Mules couldn't be used, nnd ther-5  wore circumstances which made steam  impossible, but an inventive genius  finally solved the riddle by suggesting  that cross pieces cf timber be placed  along the roof of tho canal, which was  very low. and men could lie on their  backs on top of the loaded barges and  'kick' the vessel along. After the barge  was once started this was found to be  feasible.'  The mon could easily keep the load  in motion by the means suggested, and  it has ever since boen in use. There  Is no question about the low grade of  this sort of work, and even the men  who follow ,it are constantly 'kicking'  around the villages where they live.  They were known at the mines officially as 'kickers' because of their work,  and their vocal complaints, continually  indulged in. .-caused, every ono at  Wormsley's or'St. Helen's, no mutter  whnt thoir station or employment, who  Indulged in complaints to' bo, en Hod  'kickers.' 1 presume that the origin  of tho word, ns wo uso it, is just what  I liaye suggested."  it on..'  ii ji  lll.ll I.Mel  ;i ! .eailer, of  Irishman    was  conl .���������iii',;:  lo    lh.   lie,  tlie    lii'll'b'.iit  <i ti*'ii, ,.. ,. . i, i .,���������  , I .���������!' ! ������������������ *'��������� ��������� ������������������>������������������' ; ���������' "  ll > cai-'l about for a men  rhure," nf the Lender diirbii..

Newfoundland has a unique, important and commanding position,
it is at no great distance from tho
North American continent, and practically stretches acrpts the Gull of
St. Lawrence. In shape it is quito
roughly triangular, and its longest
distance across inajiy direction is
ouly about 216 miles, ln approaching the island one is impressed witlt
the thought that it is pretty completely 'rock bound,' which to a
great extent proves to be a stubborn fact, but so varied in character
as to render it exceedingly pictur-
esquo and interesting, says W. H.
Yeamans in Country Gentleman.
The entire coast is indented with
bays of various shapes and sizes���in
somo instances theso exund so far
into land as to almost meet from
different directions, leaving only a
very narrow isthmus for thc connection of tho land. In tho larger of
the bays there are many islands,
giving in some , instances as great
variety and oqual beauty as is found
in tbe Thousand Islands of the   St.
��� Lawrence River. The general surface
is as varied as the toast line, and
presents almost every imaginable
condition of land surface; mountains,
hills and valleys abound, gorges,
gulches and ravines, through which
rush * streams of water; lakes and
rivers are numerous, and add to the
beauty, of tho general landscape. If
there Is enjoyment in traversing and
exploring the fiords of Norway, it
can bo duplicated in sailing in nnj
about the bays and coast ind-nta-
Uojns of Newfoundland.
If the coast is rough and rugged, it
is also picturesque and grand almost
beyond description in some instances; nor is there uniformity in wny
line; in one case tho cliffs and mountains will present a surface of bare
rough rock; in another there will be
suflicient soil0upon the rock to sustain a growth of forest that presents a boautfi'ul appearance in the
various shades of thJ foliage; in
still, another case the hills will be
rounded in form, well covered with
soil, that has an abundance cf herbage for cows or goats.
Within a few years there has been
established various lines for steamboat travel, taking in all tho principal hays, along a greater part of
"���the    coast  of   the    island  to  Nova
��� Scotia and to Labrador. The trips
on nnd about the bays can bo taken

'���' settlements wero confined almost ex-
��� \ clusively to  tho seacoast,   where the
��� '���>��� chief' industry, fishing, was carried

��� importance.
Because of tho interesting natural

A Curious Tribe, Low Down  In   tht
Scale of Humanity.
A hunter of big game in Africa gives
a description of a tribe of natives
whom he found there, the Watwa.
"Theso natives." he says, "live in the
swamps, their staple article of diet being lish and flour made from the seed
of the water lily, although during the
rains they grow patches of cassava
root and sweet potatoes at the edge
of the swamp. They smear their
bodies with mud to protect them from
mosquitoes and are extremely dirty
and evil smelling in consequence. They
aro very low down in the scale of humanity and have a bad reputation
among tribes living on the high ground,
which reputation they uphold during
our visit. We eugaged several Watwa
natives as carriers, but they only came
to see what they could steal. One day
I shot a reed buck in sight of the
point of suspension   for withc-ut.   the ! d j ft tW0'Watwa t0 cnrry lt
aid of gravitation those bulbs on us    fa ^ l ^ aftep a harlbeost, but
I never saw either meu or buck again.
It was no use following them into the
swamps, as thoy knew every inch
of the ground and water. They had
small canoes hidden everywhere, and
immediately they crossed a stream
they sunk the- canoe again where they
alono knew where to* find It. Our boys
were afraid to follow them, us they
used poisoned arrows and sometimes
set poisoned stakes in the tracks leading to their haunts."

shoulders would never develop    into
perfect    wings.       A    book     leaning
against a shelf affords    the    needed
perch, and there tho process of trans- ���
formation goes' on    with strange ce-
lerity.   Thc attenuated body   begins
to  enlarge  and  shorten  and to  take
on its normal  texture and rich colors. Ono joint after another from the j
thorax rounds out into shape.  While
this process is vgoing on tho bulbs oil
tho shoulders aro forming into wintj-s.
Thc change commenced near the body,
and    the    pulpy  njass    is gradually
transformed into beautifully .marked,
velvety wings.      The transformation
continues till the pulp is but a marginal band, on tho wines,    but    this
is still capable of considerable extension before tho thin membranes   nro
really completed.  Then the beautiful
protnethea, a female, poses and surveys a new and strange world, while
the ncwly-formcd  wings,  four  inches
across, aro moved gently and timidly
as if to make sure of their existence.
This large and beautify! moth is the
mature development  of    the    great,
thick worm that crawled  about last
summer and nibbled the leaves of tho
lilac, witch hazel, ash and a few other trees.   Then itf feasted   leisurely, a
crawling worm.   Now it is beautifully
equipped for flight,  but it    can    no
longer eat, and  its life mission will
be fulfilled perhaps within tho coming
night.,  This moth' can scarcely he regarded as thc worm transformed, for
sho excretes in fluid form all tho vital,  internal organs of her larval existence.     Before lapsing in the   inert
pupa state she casts off her legs and

"When tho    promethea larva   decided

|    The  flrst printed English  book on
angling was  Dame Juliana  Berner'a ,
"Book of St. Albans," wbich appeared
about 1-150,  and contained a chapter
' entitled  "A  Treatyse on  Fy'shynnge

1 much earlier than this, as nothing but
a gradual evolution could account for
, the complete list of flies for the fish-,

of first telling that the salmon could
. be caught with the, fly.   She s^ys: "Al-
! so ye may take hym, but it is seldom
seen with a dublie at such times as
j when he lepith in lyke fourme and

j of the original inventor, so that the
I time  when  fly  fishing  originated in
British waters must remain uncertain.

brilliant and vivid as it was twenty
years ago, is it?" nsked the lawyer.   -
"I do not know but it.is." answered
Die witness.
"State some circumstance which occurred, say, twelve years ago." suid
the lawyer, "and we shall bo able to
see how well you can remember."
"I appeal to your honor," said the
witne^? "if I am to be interrogated in
this manner.   It is insolent!"
"You had better answer the question," replied the judge.
"Yes. sir; state it." said the lawyer.
"Well, sir. if you compel me to do It
I will. About twelve years ��� ago you
studied in Judge ���"s oflice, did you
"Yes." answered the lawyer.
"Well, sir. I remember your father
coming into my ollice and saying to
me, 'Mr. D.. my son is to be examined
tomorrow, and I wish you would lend
mc $1,1 to buy him a suit of clothes.'
I remember also, sir, that from that
day to this he has never paid me that
sum. Thnt, sir, 1 remember as though

An actor and his wife had a. funny

playing a piece lu which tbe wife
enacted the part of a woman dentist,
cud .one evening the husband received
a note asking him to call at a certain
house. ' He did so the next day aud
was( greeted by the old man aud his
wife, the latter of whom sai'd to hitn:
"Me and my mate fell lu love,with
your missus last night. She was so
gentle with' you when you was a-sittin
of the dentist chair. I'm gettin ou
now. and all my teeth is a-gettiii loose,
and my mate wants mo to go to the

British Columbia for  British Columbians,  ADDRESS OF MR WM. MANSON, TO"THE ELECTORS  OF COMOX-ATLIN.  Cumberland, B.C.,  October 25, 1904.  Dear Sir,���������Having been nominated by tho  Coi.aerva ives of Comox AtUn, I beg to an-  uoui'oe myself a caudidate for the above  electoral district to represent you in the  Dominion H*>use of Commons at Ottawa,  and would iei-pectfully solicit your support,  Ihe timo being short it will not be .-possible for me to see every elector as I would  have liked, and therefore take this method  of informing you of niy candidature and  placing my views upon the leading issues of  the campaign briefly before you. ^  Better Terms of British Columbia.  The case of better terms requires no  lenjtthy treatment herein. This vital ques.  tiou haa been fully discussed and preseuted  before you. The fact that we have contributed over $14,000,000 in excess of the  amount expended by the Dominion Government in British Columbia, shows at once  that we have a case and a very strong case  for adjustment. The claims and demands  of this Provincj, have been repeatedly presented by delegates from the British Col-  umbia Government, to the Federal Govern  ment at 0 tawa. Tiie latest proposal on  behalf of the Province that the whole question -should be investigated by a commibsion  of tbreV, one appointed by the Provincial  Govtrument, one by the Dominion Government and the third to be selected by the  Colonial Secretary, is one which auy Gov-  ernuien. having regard for the good of our  Province should have at once accepted, but  the Liberal U-overnnieac at OiUwa declined  to do so, and in consequence have lest the  cctiaunce of the people of British Columbia, and art deserving of our strongest prj-  test ac tho polls tor having ignored the  rights of our Province,  The Railway Policy.  I am heartily in accord wi.h the railway  policy of our honored leader, Mr Robcr, L.  Borden, and believe the building of the  Grand Tiunk Pacific Railway sl.ould be  undertaken by the Government ai.d when  completed owned by the people ot Canailn,  uiaiead ot tne t>oople proviiluig ninu-tentim  ol the money and then haudii.g it over to n  railway company, thereby creating ario*h*-r  large corporation to become a menace to the  best interests of our people.  The Liberal Government has failed to  pruvidtt iu tin* ���������agreement with tho Gr.-wi  Trunk Pacific Railway Cbnipiiuy, for u instruction t^ being ���������rimultaueou-'ly a: tl o  east and west, > hus depriving the people ol  British Columbia aud particular!) thoue uf  this ai-aBtrueuoy of tho bei efiU whioh  w.uld be. derived from the expenditure of  such a large amount of monev during tho  period of cons'ruction, and is worthy of iho  condemnation ot the electors of Couiux-  Atlin.

No eye, however true, could gauge with absolute accuracy the length of  the stitches on a hundred thousand pairs of shoes���������or on one pair.  No human muscle could work eight, ten, fifteen or twenty-four hours a day,  and draw the stitches evenly, tightly, all day long.  And no human being would have the patience to wax his thread before  every stitch���������or remember to do it if he had the patience.  And fifty men could not* make as many imperfect shoes in the time one  Goodyear Welt Machine takes to makes fifty perfect pairs.  OOOOVCAH WCLT IOOKKD ftTITCH.  " What does Goodyear Welt mean ?"  "It is the very best, most perfect method ever invented for joining the  Uppers of shoes to the Soles."  <"Why is it the best?"  " Because it's the only method that make3  a shoe without a stitch or a tack under the  foot and stronger than hand sewing."  " Why is it stronger than hand sewing?.'.  "Because it locks its stitches inside the  leather of the outer sole, draws them tighter and  tnoi*e uniformly than hand sewing."  " What advantage does tlie lock stitch give?''  "The holding power of thc stitch remains till the sole is V/orn through  whereas in hand sewn shoes, thc top of the stitch wears off in a few days and  only straight strands of thread are left to hold the sole on.  c< Docs it make the shoe cheaper as well as* better ?M  " It docs because it makes fifty perfect pairs, where one imperfect pair  could not be made by band."  " Have any improvements been made in the  Goodyear Machines in recent years ?"  " Yes, a vast improvement has been made in  the New, Improved Goodyear Welt Machine, now  in use in the Slater Shoe Factory."  "What la the iuuuitfuf the iiupiuvv.uk;ul?"  11A better motion of the parts, producing better  results in the shoe."  " Can a novice tell a Goodyear Welt by seeing it ?

A purely human phenomenon, at once nigral and  physical, had neutralized  the action*of the redhot  blade which the executioner of Feofar had passed over hia  eyes. Oue remembers that at the moment, of that terrible punishment Mar-  fa Strogoff was there, stretching out  her hands toward her sou.  Michael Strogoff looked at her, as a:  son can look at his mother wheu it is  for the last time. Streams of tears  welled up from his heart to bis eyes,  which his high spirit tried in vain to  restrain and, filling the sockets of his  eyes, had thus saved his sight. The  action of the heat had been destroyed  just in the same manner as when a  smelter, after having plunged his hand  into water, thrusts it with impunity  into molten iron.  Michael Strogoff had at once understood the danger he would have run  In making known his secret to auy one.  He realized the advantages which he  might gain from this situation for the  accomplishment of his projects. It is  because they would believe him to be  blind that they would leave him his  liberty.  It was necessary, then, that he  -should���������be-bllnd,���������that��������� he���������should���������be-  so for all, even for Nadia���������in short,  that he should be so everywhere and  that not a gesture at any moment could  cause any doubt of the sincerity of his  role. His resolution was taken. Even  his very life must be risked in order  to give to all the proof of his blindness,  and one knows how he. risked it.  His mother alone knew the truth,  and It was on the square of Tomsk that  he had whispered it In her ear when.,  bending over her in the shade, he had  covered her with his kisses.'  We can now understand how when  Ivan Ogareff bad placed the emperor's  letter before his eyes, which he believed to be blind. Michael Strogoff had  been able to read, had read that letter  which disclosed the hateful designs of  the traitor; hence that energy which  he displayed during the second part ot  the journey; hence that unchanging  will to renob Irkutsk and on arriving  thero to-fulfill with bis own voice bin  mission. He know that tho town waa  to bo given up by tho traitor. IIo knew  that tho llfo of tho grnud duke wns  threatened. Tho safety of the brother  of tho czar and of Siberia was still In  his hn rids.  In a few words all this history vvaa  recounted to the grand (luko, and Michael Strogoff told also, and with what  emotion, tho part which Nadia had taken In theso events.  "Who Is this young girl?" asked the  grand duke.  "Tho daughter of the exiled Wasslll  Feodor," answered Michael Strogoff.  "Tho daughter of Comuiunder Feodor," fin Id the grand duko, "has ceased  to ho tho da ugh ter of an e::llu. There  nre no moro exiltc- at li'l;r.t>.!:,"  Nadia, less strong In Joy t'.ian sho lmd  been lu sorrow, fell nt the feet of the  grand duke, who raised her with one  hand, while lie held out the other to  Michael IsirogotT.

Meanwhile tho defenders of Irkutsk  had held themselves on their guard,  and the Investment continued, but on  the 7th of October from the first streaks  of day the boom of cannon resounded  on the heights around Irkutsk. It was  the relieving army which had arrived  under the orders of General Kissely,  who thus signaled his presence to the  grand duke.  The Tartars did not stay any longer.  They did not wish to risk a battle under the walls of Irkutsk. The camp of  the Angara was immediately raised.  Irkutsk* was at last delivered.  With the first Russian soldiers two  friends of Michael Strogoff had entered  tho town. They were the inseparable  Blount and Jolivet. By gaining the  right bank of the Angara along the  barrier of ice they nnd the other fugitives had been able to escape before  the flames of the Angara had reached  the raft. This had been put down by  Alcide Jolivet in his notebook and in  this manner, "Was near ending like a  lemon in a bowl of punch!"  Their joy was great to once more find  Nadia and Michael Strogoff safe and  sound, especially when they learned  that their brave companion was not  blind, a statement which led Harry  Blount to jot down this observation:  "A redhot iron is' perhaps insufficient  to destroy the sensibility of the optic  nerve.   To be modified."  Afterward, the two correspondents,  well Installed in Irkutsk, occupied  themselves In putting in order the Impressions of their journey. From thence  two interesting chronicles of the Tartar  invasion were sent to London and Paris, which, strange to say, only contradicted each other on points of less moment.   Eor���������the-__xest_the.,camp.algn,_w,as^ad_  for the emir and his allies. That "invasion, useless, as are all those that attack colossal Russia, was most fatal to  them. They soon found themselves cut  off by the troops of the czar, who retook successively all the conquered  towns. Besides, the winter was terrible, and of those hordes, decimated by  the cold, only a small number returned  to the steppes of Tartary. The route  from Irkutsk to the Ural mountains  was free.  Tho grand duke was Iu haste to return to Moscow, but he delayed his  Journey In order to assist at a touching  ceremony whicli took place some days  after the entry of the Russian troops.  Michael Strogoff had sought out Nadia and In the ���������presence of her father  had said to her, "Nadia. my sister still,  when you left Riga to come to Irkutsk  had you no other regret but that of  leaving behind you your motherV"  "No," replied Nadia; "none whatever."  "So that no part of your heart has  remained down there?"  "None, broth?!'."  "Then, Nadia," said Michael Strogoff,  "I do not believe but that Hod in bringing ua together, In allowing us to pass  through these great trials together, lum  wisbt'd us to be united forever."  "AhI"'said Nadin ns she fell Into the  arms of Ktlohnvl Strogoff, and, turning  toward Wasslll Feodor, "My father,"  she said, blushing deeply.  "Nadin," snid Wasslll Feodor, "my  Joy will bo to call yuu Loth luy children!"  The marriage ceremony took place lu  the cathedral of Irkutsk. It was very  Klinple In Hh preparations, but very  beautiful In the eoucutnw of the ���������military and civil population, which thm*  wished to kIhjvv Its gratitude to \he  young couple, whose ctrntigo Journey  had now lieenino legendary.

Mow and again,  ���������however, instances occur ..which prove  that this barbarous right is still claimed and exercised.

A  Rc������:ent   Caso  Whlcli   Indirectly   Bears  Upon tha QuHsMori uf Education and  tho Siiuly of L,ltci:itui-c.  As illustrating the matter of allu-  siveness in literature, wc venture to  quote a letter just ruc-eived from one  who signs, himvseli. "Ono of Campbell's life-long friends." Indirectly it  bears upon"thd question of education  and tho study and usus oi literature.  Tho writer says:  "As a lifelong personal friend ; of  tho lato Professor Campbell, I wish  to express my grateful thanks for  tho truo arid beautiful appreciation  in this morning'is Globo. In scn'.i-  ment and feeling and form it is i-or-  fect. Tho delicacy of touch makes  mo certain that the fault is mine  when I pause over ono-phrase in the  last sentence. Tho sentence is a gem,  but I feel I miss tho beauty of the  phrase 'his own gray spirit,' I have  read it over and over again, end  each time feel more sure that it is  no misprint, but that it has a background of literary allusion with  which I ought to bo familiar. Tho  phrase has haunted mo aU forenoon,  and I cannot rest until I fix it."  Tho phrase referred to is, in fact,  an almost unconscious glint from a  lino in Tennyson's "Ulysses:" Jn  using it the" writer did not have tho  poem in ni-ind, nor was there at tho  first any sense of similarity between  the brave old Greek hero and tins'  eager Canadian scholar. Its uso illustrates one of thoso mysterious  workings of tho mind in its ."own  secret laboratory, where, without  ���������the conscious "effort or direction of  tlie/will,', it draws' up out of some  forgotten cranny some form of expression that is fitted by, instinct'to  some heart emotion or some unformed thought. Psychologists may have  an explanation of these nKtitgl process; the most the rest of us can'do  is to appreciate the fact" and to'provide favorable conditions. George  Paxton Young used to talk to his  s'Aidents about "old* sense ino\e-  ments returning on their former  tracks." That may offer a clue. The  unrerriembered lino from "Ulysses,"  under tlie stimulus ofo the emotion  awakened by thought about John  Campbell, found its way back^along  the track it made years ago, and,  without conscious choice, .the two  men so widely separated were bound  together in one association. -.That,  too, is a matter for the philosophers.  But . second thought over those  things, and over tho discussion the  -phrase���������provoked,���������br-ings-out���������in to-  greater distinctness the aptness, unseen before, not only of the phrase  itself, but of the whole passage to  which it belongs.. 1 he passage is  familiar, but, as one literary friend  of the dead professor said, it is  worth quoting, and it may send  some readers of The Globe back to  their English classics for tho summer reading thoy so much desire:  "I nm a iinrt of all that I havo m^t:  Vet all experience Is an 'arch wli ruthro',  Gleams that untriivcled world, whose mornln fades  Por over and for over when I move,  How dull it Is to pause, 'to snrlie 'an end.

CANADIAN  LAWN  BOWLERS.  Handsomely Enterlatiued and Warmly 'VTel-  corned by tlio Provost nf Firres, the  Birthpluco of Lord Stiatlicor.a.  Alex. Vulo, one of tho C.naclan  lawn bowlers who recently toured  Great Britain, writes from Aberdeen  on July IS, as follows:  The visit of the lawri bowlers to  Forres, the birthplace cf Lord  Strathcona, was a grand innovation  of our program. When it was first  mentioned that such a visit was requested wo could not see how it  could bo granted, but through the  persistent efforts of the worthy Provost of Forres, who would not accept our excuses, we finally arranged that our saloon carriage be dropped from the train en route from  Inverness to' Aberdeen. On our arrival we wero met at the station by  Provost Lawrence, wearing his robes  of office, a brilliant cioa--' of sjarlet  trimmed with white fur, and a cockade hat. He extended a welcoming  hand to each member as we stepped  from tho carriage, The rain was  falling in torrents, but it by no  means marred the enthusiasm of the  assembled ..crowds, who cheered as if  welcoming royalty. All along tho  route tho royal standard of Scotland was displayed, and from every  window and door waving handkerchiefs and, flags wero hying; tho  children crowded the streets, and  gazed with intci-jst as wo passed  along.  An hour or two was spent in tho  hotel in social chat with the Provost, bailies and citizens, until dinner was announced, when we partook of a repast equal to, if not sur-  A passing, any we received in somo of  the larger cities. Tho Provost, a  great big man of fine physique and  larger heart occupied tho chair, and  expressed in warm sentiments his  pleasure on behalf of the citizens of  Forres at the visit of the Canadians  aiid as a tribute of r-'spect to thoir  esteemed and honored native, Lord  Strathcona. The toast of tho Canadians was responded to and drunk  with Highland honors, with one foot  on the chair and ono on the tuble,  then three Highland cheers were given while tho pipers played "Will Yo  No Como Back Again." Winn Mr.  Ituthvon McDonald sang "Standard  on thc Braes of Mar" tho climax was  reached and health and song was  drunk in good old Highland dew to  Mr. McDonald. Capt. Anderson replied fo;r th.; Cai odious and thanked  ���������tho-good���������people-of���������Forres���������for���������their���������  welcome.  On our way fo the station the  streets were lined with people and  from every window good-byes wero  shouted. On our way, in passing tho  littlo white-washed, thatch-roofed  cottage, the birthplace * of Lord  Strathcona, Ave bared our heads and  gave three hearty cheers, which were  acknowledged with a bow and a  shako of her apron from an old lady  who stood at tho door. Arriving at  tho" station with five minutes to  spare, Mr. Ihithven McDonald again  yielded to tho demands made on him  and gavo with grent gusto thc  ".Maple Loaf," in the ihorns of which  tho members of the team Jo n.d,  making the station ring, much to tho  amusement of the assembled ciowd  and passengers, We shall not soon  forget this really kind Highland welcome, and shall look bar.*-; upon It  as ono of the brightest cunts of our  tour.

C.  A One Wor-4 Speech.  Julius Caeaar. holds the ' record fer  tirevity ot' convincing speech.  The story is told that while Caesar  was la the midst of his struggle for the  mastery of the Roman empire the soldiers of his favorite Tenth legion mutinied. He appeared before theni, and,  ottering the one word "Quiritoa."  paused.  That word means, of course, "elti-  acas." but to the veterans to whom it  was wldrossed it meant a great deal  more. It was the special term used in  addressing Roman voters assembled in  a purely civic capacity, not as soldlefa,  ���������but ns civilians.  To the mutinous soldiers lt meant  that the great commander, whom they  Jiiul followed for ten long years from  the Alps to the Thames and from the  Rhine to tlu* Pyrenees and across tha  Rubicon, disowned them as soldiers aud  ���������dismissed them from his. victorious  service.  Realizing its meaning, tho story goes,  the mutineers were appalled. Battle  scarred veterans burst into tenrs. Implored their le.-ider to pardon (hem and  ..'inflicted summary pnniahiuent upon  the inciters of the mutiny as a proof ol  jtiuur repent;;nee.

She was only a small black and  white cat of humble birth, returning  from a little social party in the  neighborhood of King and York  streets, Toronto. It was rather lato  at night, but what of that? Cats  keep, no count of tho hour, and she.  was as dignified and proper in lu>r  bearing as a mut uro black and white  puss need be. Ihero was nothing  about her to justify thi insolent attitude of a Scotch terrier who suddenly confronted her with a snarl  and a snap. Puss tried to cross tho  street, but a trolley car was in tho  way, and thc impudent terrier mado  bold to chase her. She suddenly  turned, and the terrier stopped. Hor  back went up, her tnil grew big. and  sho spat out dciianco at her tormentor. Tho terrier may have been rude,  but ho was discreet���������ho kept at a  sufo distance. Two or three newsboys,* a "red-hot" man and a polico  oilicer wore interected spectators.  They most ungallantly sided with  the terrier, who was now barking  ferociously, but keeping well out of  tho pussy's reach. One of the boys  throw a stone at the combatants; it  rolled between them, and the terrier's attention was diverted for a  moment from his antagonist. It  was his iirst mistake. Puss taw her  opportunity, and leaped at tho terrier, landing fairly on his back. In  a second sha had her claws full of  his hair, and he was runn'ng for  dear lifo down the street, l'uss held  on like a circus rider, contriving to  sink her sharp clnws into his back  at ovory jump. The crowd followed,  shouting. As Ihey passed an alley  puss jumped oft and disappeared in  tho darkness. Thero is one terrier in  Toronto who has had enough fun  with cats to .last a lifetime.���������Ontario  ���������Advertiser.  Ad. Odd Coincidence.

Sinco then wo always keep  these pills in the house for uso in the  case of sickness of this kind.  "For some timo I suffered from  pains in tho small of the back and  accompanying ills, and though I was  treated by a doctor at considerable  expense,   I   could  obtain  no lasting  "benefit until I used Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills, which seemed to be  exactly suited to my ailment. Father  and I aro greatly  pleased   with   the  'excellent medicine and wish to recommend it to others."

Gentlemen,  1 beg to inform you that it has been con-  bideied wise in the interests of the Conservative party and the people of this constituency th.it I should retire from the contest,  and allow thu election to go by acclamation.  This conclusion has boen arrived at owing  to th result of the elections on November  3rd, over.the whole of the Dominion, wheu  the Liberal party waa returned by au oyer.-  whelming 'majority.     I have therefore al-  1.13  73  ftowtoMot m-ftjoritjr i,,,i,ii it i .W  Cumberland, November 5th, '04.  To Wm.

All eff. rin tu save her life proved  uiii������ve1Hii-fi  lowed my friends to withdraw my uomiu-  atiou und I feel satibtied that mysupporteis  after careful consideration, will come to the  uonolusiou in doing so, the right oourse has  been pursued in. the best interests of all.

During my  aauvuB-) of the districts  of  Alberni and  Comox, I made many warm friends and received the greatest assurance of support and  oncourngeiiieut from the electors, and I am  confident that with u������ rmul conditions, as  the Liberal-CouHcrvative candidate, I would  have secured a lurgu mujority.    However,  owing to the effect of the railway policy of  tho Government now in power,  and ihe  hopes und expectations of the people of lhu  mainlaud portions of tbe oonstitueuuy with  roleronce to railway oonstruotion it is im-  desirable that  the  friends  of  the purty  should be asked to place themselves in op  position to the sentiment of tho puople of  Canada clearly expressed at the pulls.  I retire from tne contest with pleasant  recollections of a renewal of nuuy ar.  qHaiuUiioei and of the new friendships I  have formed, and desiru to express my eiu-  oure thanks to tho many friends who wero  prepared to give me a hearty and loyal support as tht Liberal-Conservative oaudidatu,  Respectfully yours,  Wm.
