I regret keenly that I over allowed him  to cross my threshold."  Olive did not answer; this troubled  him.  "Did he ever sppak to you upon  the subject of love, Olive?" he asked, abruptly. "I ask the question in  all earnestness; you may answer it  or not just as you please; still, it  would be better if you were to make  a confidant of me, my child."  "Would it make you more lenient  with him, papa?" asked the girl in  a low, shaking voice, eager with tremulous emotion.  "It will do no harm to try and  see," returned the old judge, evasively.  The girl dropped her brown head,  that hor father might not read the  pain in her tear-dimmed eyes aa  she replied, falteringly:  "He never told me so in words,  papa, but I am sure he does love  me, and that he would lay down  his life .for me if* need be; his every  wistful glance, the trembling of his  hands when they touch mine, his  gi'eat joy in being where I am, tell  it all too plainly. Nannie noticed it;  so did all the rest of my girl  friends."  "And do you care for him, Olive?"  asked the judge, nervously.        ,   " .  -   Th-e-giri���������hid���������her-faee~in-her"hands-  ancl burst into  tears.  "Miist I toll you that, papa?" she  faltered, sobbingly.  "Yes," returned the judge, sternly;  "tell me the truth,"  "I���������I���������do care for him," sobbed  Olive. "I never knew how much until  ���������until���������to-day. I���������I���������care 'for him so  much that I would do anything in  tho wide world to reinstate him in  your favor. Won't you forgive him  for my sake, papa?" she sobbed,  holding her arms out to him imploringly. "I know, I am suro it is all a  terrible mistake, unci if he has an  opportunity to speak, ho will prove  it to you. Now, it it had been his  brother Oscar who had been accused,  I would not have boen so amazed���������  so dumbfounded���������hut Roger! oh, never, papal" sho cried vehemently,  "never!"  "Stop! don't mako such a dramatic sceno in public view!" exclaimed  her father, hastily; "you will attract  nil tho servants to tho windows to  find out what is going on."  She camo nearer to him and looked up into his angry faco.  "You havo novor in all my llfo  refused mo any favor that you could  grant, mo, papa," sho sobbed; "now  do not turn from mo when I plead  with you to sparo poor Roger."  "I will hoar no moro!" declared  the Judge, stormily,' turning on his  heel; "you shall not interiorc���������tho  law ��������� must tak������ Ita   course.     Your  words can not influence mo to  compound a felony."  He entered tho house, and took  hia scat at tho luncheon-table.  For tlio first timo Jn hor life, Olive  did not join him thoro, It Hoomoci  terribly lonely to hnvo no bright,  girlish faco oppoRlto him, nnd no littlo whlto hand toying among th*  china cups.  It had always boon a groat delight  to him to lorgot all his cares in listening to Olive's girlish nonsense  ond gay laughter, Tho room seemed  gray and deaolale. Ho would not  havo had that llttlo tilt with his  Olive if tho handsome young private  "secretary had not come between  them, he told hlmsolf bitterly, and  his heart grow harder than ever toward tho young man who had such  a hold upon his daughter's heart.  "Young girls of Olive's age are  very roniuntlc," ho muttered;  "there's only ono thing to do, and  thut is to not my foot down firmly  in this Glondontilng affair.

And tho old judgo wont out of the  house, Htuilinu grimly at his own  diplomacy nntl clover plan to nip lu  the bud his daughter's infatuation.  Never httd tit<wo about the Supreme Court hnhelil the judge in m������  harsh a mood as he ww- that ������lti*r-  noon. as those interested in thesev-  eral cases broii-jlit, up Uiuiu U.ut  discovered to their cost.  The first thing hn did wns to attend to the making out of nl) necessary pttpors in his charge against  Roger 01tn������!i*nning, whom ho intended to pm-wii'-* to the full extent of the law.  ��������� rro aid not glance out of the window when the conveyance drove up  to the Supreme Court Chambers to  take Glendenning, who was in charge  of an officer, to the Tombs, nor did  Roger Glendenning" raise his heavy  eyes to the window.  "It does not matter what becomes  of me," he said, gloomily, to his  companion, as the door of the carriage closed after them and they  seated themselves. "Life is a blank  to me. I only wish to Heaven that I  could go mad, and thus find temporary release from my miserable, torturing brain!"  For some moments they rode on in  silence, Glendenning gazing indifferently from the window at the  throngs of passers-by. This was' the  last time for many a long and weary  year that he would drive through  those crowded streets, arid see thc  faces of free men and women and  little children hurrying to and fro,  looking up bright and gladsome  through the sunshine at him. He  wondered if the brother for whom  he was making so terrible a sacrifice  would have done the same for him,  had he been in his place. It would  all have been different had there been  any chance for him to have won  Olive Kneeland'e love; then, though  Oscar had been a thousand times his  brother, he would not have taken  upon his own shoulders a felony  that Oscar should have atoned for.  Suddenly he clutched at the officer's arm, straining his eyes toward  the opposite pavement.  "You can do me a favor if you  will," cried Glendenning, hoarsely;  "it is the first and last that I will  ever ask of you." N  "If I    can conscientiously    do    it  -withojatijioMifiMag^Jdik^L^Jy^ ������.  will    do  it,"  answered    the    other.  "What is it?"  "Draw up to tho opposite pavement and let the carriage stand there  for three minutes. Ah! three minutes is not much out of a life-time.  Do you see that young girl walking  swiftly down the street? That is  Miss Kneeland; she is going to her  father's office; she will turn that first  corner. Let me make my words a  prayer to you; draw rein, and let  me sit here and watch her out of  sight, will you?"  Those few words told tho officer an  eloquent story; he could read plainly  what they meant.  No, three minutea of happiness was  not much to take out of a life-time,  and he would fool tho happier for  knowing that he had gratified him;  it was the last kindness that ho could  ever do for this young man who had  shown him such compassion in othor  days. Ho gavo tho ordor quietly.  Roger Glendenning sat quito still,  with his strong hands clinched tightly together. Ho quito forgot tho other's presence, forgot tho wholo world,  remembering only tho young girl, so  near him and yet���������nh, God I���������so far,  who was disappearing so swiftly from  his strained ga/.o. His whole soul  seonied concentrated in that gazo.  His lips moved, and his companion  heard him mutter, brokenly;  "I may never seo hor again in this  world, and I lovo hor so! but It Is to  mako hor happy that I am undergoing all this now/'  Tho last of tho sontenco was so indistinct thnt his companion wns not  quito sure ho had hoard aright, but  he cortainly understood this much,  that Roger Glendenning hopelessly  loved tho old Judge's beautiful young  daughter,  At that instant Glendenning uttor-  ed a low cry.  "Daro I ask ono moro fnvor of  you?" ho asked, huskily. "Sho dropped ono ot tho rottohud* that was  lying on her broast. Soo] it lies in  the dust of tho road-sldo. I���������I���������  would glvo hair of my llfo to havo  that rosobud. I would tako it with  mo into my captivity. I would ehor-  ish it whllo my lifo lasted, and the  prayer would bo on my lips that they  would -bury it with mo whon I die.  Would you mind if I wore to got if?  Suroly you can trust me. I will not  b������ out of your sight, and only a few  Stops from you. Be kind to mo, Will  ycv. ge* u, ���������"* ritlrw mt* to do so?"  Was the ntfleer mod, or did hoart-  felt pity for the young man blind his  reason and'niako him forgot for one  brief moment his sworn duty, not to  allow him out of his custody for even  an instant?  "You may k-'I the itovtut if j-Jm  prize it so very highly," ho responded, gently; and a full realisation of  what ho had dono did not fully occur to lilm until Glendenning, who  "ngt'rly sprung from th" vehicle, was  i!tnu������t arro'-'v the rond to th������ opposite pavement. Watching him an-  xlotifily, he now Mm ntnop nnd re-  cow the diiuKovvrt'd bud, and turn  his face toward the vehicle again.  Thon. nil in a moment of time, a  horrible event happened. There was  a fearful explosion within tho building directly in front of which Ihe  carriacre stand, and in an in������uul iWs  wildest scene of terror reigned that  pen could ever picture or mind conceive. The air was thick with blinding smoke and hurling bricks, the  shrieks and =gronns of the panic-,  stricken pedestrians, the mad shouts  for help, the terrible roar of a seething fire that had ignited all in an  instant, and over all the ring of the  fire-engine bell and the plunging of  horses' hofs. A very pandemonium  reigned where but a moment before  had been the business street of a  city, over which the afternoon sunshine slanted smilingly.  Tho officer, William Blake, was  thrown unconscious to the bottom of  the carriage. Ono of the horses was  killed outright by a flying bowlder,  tho other was maimed and trampled  over by the throng in their mad  flitrht for life. Even the driver of the  vehicle deserted his post in the wild  confusion, threw the reins to his disabled horses, and fled into the midst  of the terrified crowd.  It was one uf the most horrible  holocausts that was ever recorded in  the annals of a great city. For three  days the fire-fiend held sway, and  block after block was swept before  it like chaff before the hurricane.  Por three days body after body  was taken from the ruins, and many  more were still, missing; but the  heat was so intolerable that the  workmen made but slow progress in  their searching.  The first two names to head the  list of the missing were those of  Officer Blake and Roger Glendenning.  They were known to be among the  number, but just which of the charred remains were theirs it was hard  to say,  [to up mwTTVT-p-n.")  HE DIDN'T BUY.  Raking Graas After Mowing*.  Some persons advise raking after  each mowing. I do not, because the  clippings drop down into the grass and  form a mulch, which I consider of  great benefit They also help to fertilize the soil. The lawn that is not  mowed often enough will not look well  after you have been over it with the  mower, because there was growth  enough to partially hide the sward upon which it falls. This will wither and  turn brown in a day or two and greatly detract from tho beauty of the lawn.  But if you keep your lawn well mowed,  ���������and that means going over it at least  three-t'imes���������a���������week--in-oi*dinaiw��������� seasons���������the amount clipped off at each  mowing will be so slight that there  will not be enough of it to show. Let  the knife blades be set high enough to  leave at least two inches of the foliage.  The Coyote.  One of the most interesting wild animals ls the prairie wolf, known in  Mexico ns the coyote and In the old  world as the jackal. It is thirty-six to  forty Inches long, with a tall measuring sixteen to eighteen Inches in length.  The color is usually a dull, yellowish  gray on the back aud sides, with black  cloudings. The underpavt and Inside  of the limbs are of a dirty white tint  Tho voice Is a sort of snapping bark,  and for this reason the animal is  known as tho "barking wolf." It Is  found on tho western plains, extending from Mexico to latitude 55 degrees  north. It hunts ln packs and Is very  fleet.  A Good Color.  Negroes use the same phrases tbey  hoar whites use, ofton wltb amusing  application. This conversation, overheard ln tho streets of a southern city,  ls related in Lipptncott's Magazine:  ������������������Howdy, Mis' Maudy? How is you?"  called one dusky aunty to another.  "Ob, I Jes' tollable, Mis* Johnson. How  you foolln'?" was the rosponse. "Why,  I*s a-feolln' mighty peart, I ls," confided Mrs, Johnson. "I outtenly doei  feel fine." "Wcllum, yo' sho' is look-  In' well," ngrood bor frlond. "Yo* color's io good,"  Experience of a Man In Searck ot ta  Present For Bla Gtrl.  "A fellow never realizes what a woman's articles of wear cost until he ls  engaged to be married," observed a  young business man. "This fact was  impressed on ine with particular emphasis. I happened to meet on lower  Broadway a college chum, now In business and in moderate circumstances,  who has just become engaged to a nice  girl, also without an independent fortune.  "'Com? In here with me, Jack,' he  said, stopping in front of a well known  shop. 'Tomorrow Is Minnie's birthday,  and! want to get her a remembrance.'  " 'What is It going to be?' I asked as  we made our way in.  " 'Well,' he replied, 'I've sent her so  much candy and flowers and stuff of  that sort that I think I'll vary it with  something useful this time. I've been  thinking of some nice handkerchiefs.'  "I agreed that handkerchiefs were  always a satisfactory possession, and  we wended our way to the proper  counter.  " 'I want to look at women's handkerchiefs���������something rather nice, suitable for a gift' said Jim, my companion.  "The saleswoman produced a box of  filmy affairs about the size of the palm  of your hand, with a narrow border of  lace and some kind of fancy business  ln each corner.  " Those are neat and simple looking,'  said Jim approvingly. 'How much are  they?'  "When the answer came, 'Twelve  dollars,' Jim thought,1 and so did I,  that the price named was for the entire  box.  "'Very well, I'll take a dozen,' he  answered, with a care free tone which  made the saleswoman look at us a little curiously.  '"Excuse me, but how many did you  say?' she asked.  " 'One dozen. There are a dozen in  the box, are there not?'  "'Yes, sir,' returned the young woman, with an impressed air. 'One hundred and forty-four dollars, please,' she  said, making out the slip.  "It was our turn,to stare.  "'I���������I don't understand you,' said  Jim,  gasping.    T  thought  you  were  jluoJingJhejH^ce by the dozen/      , '"You'll hardly get linen^aifd"real"  Valenciennes with those hand worked  corners for a dollar apiece,' sniffed the  saleswoman superciliously.  " 'I don't know hand work from fish  net myself,' retorted Jim crossly. 'But  I do know I'm not going to pay $12 for  a lot of rag threo inches square. Come  away, Jack; I'll get some kind of a  bangle at the jeweler's.'  "When we had escaped from the  withering glance of the damsel behind  the counter Jim mopped the perspiration from his brow.  " 'And then they say modern young  ) men are too selfish to marry,' he  groaned."���������New York Press.  Bow Batevy Ia <*t������nrrl������I.  Emery comes from the island of  Naxos, in the eastern Mediterranean,  whence it has been exported for the'  last two centuries or more.   The beds;  are In the northeast of the island, the;  deposit descending into some of the'  neighboring islands, the emery being;  found in lenticular masses, resting on  layers of schist In limestone, almost  identical with Parian marble, the finest marble known, which comes from  the Island of Paros, close by.   There  are about 300 men engaged In the  trade, all of whom have to be married  before tbey are admitted to the fraternity.  The material is much too hard  to be dug out or even blasted.   Great  fires are lighted round the blocks till  the natural cracks expand with the  heat, and levers are then inserted to  pry them apart  This system is continued until tho  blocks are reduced In size to masses of  a cubic foot or less, and they are then  shipped as if they were coals. There  are said to be 20,000,000 tons yet available at Naxos. It is one of the hardest substances yet known, coming next  to the diamond, and among Its crystalline forms known to the jewelers are  the ruby and the sapphire.  Lighting n Pipe.  A smoker who started to light his  pipe on the street turned to his companion and said: "A man told me the ,  other day how to light an ordinary  match ln a high wind. Let me show  you."  There was a stiff breeze blowing.  The demonstrator took from his pocket  an envelope, struck a parlor match on  a rail and shielded lt Inside of the envelope, facing the wind as he did so.  The match burned with hardly a flicker, and the man who held it puffed on  his pipe with great satisfaction.  "That's a trick worth knowing," he  remarked. "Here's another.

"Very new and modern are the almost automatic forts," writes C. M.  Sullivan in Technical World Magazine,  "so modern, indeed, that the installation of comparatively few of them has  been completed. But so complete is  the confidence of all the experts in  their inviolability that $50,000,000 is to  be spent at once by tbe United States  alone in the perfection of Its coast defense. Of this amount at least $1,000,  000 will be expended at Forts Hamilton and Schuyler, guarding the harbor  of New York.  "In coast defense work the first necessity ls to be always prepared for  attack, never to be caught napping.  With this Idea ln view small ships of a  new type and great speed are being  built for scouting purposes. Telephone  systems, supplementing the telegraph,  are being built along the whole coast  line, each station connected with the  nearest fortress. Coast guards and  lookouts are being furnished with  portable searchlights, and each observer will carry with him a portable telephone, the receiver clamped to his ear \  uo that he may be in constant touch  with the officer in command of the fire  control station. More remarkable still  Is the flying 'periscope,' a scientific  combination of telescope and camera,  which will automatically take snap- '  shots showing the details of everything  Visible on land and water within a distance of ten or even twenty miles.  "In practice it has been found possible to locate a target five or six miles  away, make the necessary calculations,  aim and fire a gun and drop a shot exactly on the specified spot, all within  three or four minutes."  MUW IT WORKED.  t  The Notmcar.  The nutmegcls the kernel of the fruit  of several species of trees growing wild  in Asia, Africa and America. The cultivated nutmeg tree is from fifty to  seventy feet high and produces fruit  for sixty years. The fruit is of the  size and appearance of a roundish pear,  yellow in color. The fleshy part of the  fruit is rather hard and resembles  candled citron. Within Is the nut, enveloped in a curious yellowish red aril  _ known_to.,u3^as_miice. To prepare_the_  seeds for use they are dried in a moderate heat for about two months. Then  the shells are broken and the nutmegs  picked out and assorted, the inferior  ones being reserved for the oil press.  As the essential oil of nutmeg brings  a high price, dishonest growers often  steep the nutmegs in hot water to extract tbe oil from them. They are  then coated with lime and sent Into  the channels of commerce. Bucb nutmegs are worthless, tbeir aroma and  pungency having disappeared, these  qualities being due exclusively to the  OIL If on inserting a pin no oil rushes  <mt to the surface, the nutmeg is, to  all Intents and purposes, a wooden nutmeg.

IN  ���������Remarkable Tribute of a Writer In a  New Y������rk Magazine���������"Things Run  Better Here," Say Americans In  -Canada���������The Lure of the Wilderness  ���������From Engineer to Grand Piano-  Conquering the Last Frontier,  Tho leading* article In "Success"  Magazine of New York lor August Is  ���������a* on tho Canadian Northwest, called "Conquering the Last Frontier," by  Samuel Merwln, and gives a graphic description of how an empire Is there  toeing built. Part I. of the article, entitled "Our Lost Empire" follows in  9art:  Definition number seven, In Web-  <Bter'-������ unabridged, of the transitive  "���������erb. "to lose," reads. "To fall to obtain or enjoy; to fail to gain or win."  "Twenty-five years ago Canada was  tStrevaig and diffident. To-day she Is  , strong,j rich, and a little proud. Then,  had we thought it worth while to  ���������snake advances, it is difficult to say  what might or might not have taken  ;j>lace. Now, there are half a million  American settlers In Manitoba and  Saskatchewan and Alberta, and, if you  --should ask them, you would Iind that  they are not at. all Interested In the  annexation question. "Things run  ta,ther'better here," they say, "than in  the States. The administration of justice 4s much more satisfactory. We  ���������mee no advantage in changing."  If you have   ever  felt, as  I  rather  fancy you have, that it is in you to explore strange, new countries for yourself, that you would riot hesitate very  Song between going into something in  the dry   goods   way   and   going, isto  something In the empire-building way,  you will do well to open the atlas to  -the-map,   of   North America and   let  'loose your imagination in the splendid-  iiy   romantic    conquest   of   that   Far  -JNorthwest which we know very little  about, but Which we shall, willy njlly'  . learn a good deal about before "Jim"  ������������������Hill, aud the new Grand Trunk PaciflG  isuid   liie   Canadian Northern, and the  ��������� Canadian   Pacific,   and   the   Dominion  -'Government get through with it.  They  ~T������jr������~rondlnp=WHile~you*l^rt;-^5n~������m;'  pire with which we,  of these  States,  ���������shall very shortly have to reckon.  JtMaw Method of Empire Building.  It is the first time an empire was  overbuilt in Just this way. The rifle  has no place in the undertaking.  Thanks to the century-long-Influence  ���������at the Hudson's Bay Co., the Indians  aind half-breeds are docile. Thanks to  the Anglo-Saxon sense of order, and to  the Royal Northwest Mounted Police,  there are few or none of those "bad  rsnea" who 'have infested our frontiers.  The conquering army is made up of  are worKilTg for corporation directors  whose business ears are not attuned  to the call of the wild. But if you  could drop into the Alberta Hotel at  Edmonton, on some mild spring evening, and have a look at the assistant  engineers and the Instrument men who  are booked to disappear toward the  Rockies, within a day or two, for some  six, eight, or ten months, you would  see what I mean. The undying spirit  of adventure Js In their eyes; the half-  conscious swagger of the soldier of  fortune ls in their stride. The same  haunting desire that drove Stanley  back to Africa, that drives the soldier  to the wars, or the sailor to the sea.  ls sending these men back to tht wilderness.  $100,000,000 or So.  The spending out of hand of a hundred millions or so for railroad building through a new land obviously  means something. Three new trunk  lines are already under construction in Western Canada. Before long  we shall be hearing a good deal about  the foresight and the unflinching courage of the men who are standing back  of these huge undertakings. But when  you see this sort of thing In the. papers,  smile. A man would show about as  much foresight In jtaklng out a claim  in the bullion room at the mint. In  Manitoba. Saskatchewan, and Alberta  Provinces tRera are moro tmur two  hundred thousand square miles ot  prairie land, most of lt rich black loam,  ready cleared for the plough. As much  again awaits clearing. In the mountains are minerals and Umber. Settlers are pouring ln on every train to  occupy this vast region. Towns and  grain warehouses are springing up over  night. Imagine the Mississippi and  Missouri Valleys to settle over again  under modern conditions. Imagine  anything you like, and you will probably be within the facts.  It is nothing unusual for these prairies to yield a general average of 25  bushels of wheat to tbe acre, and 40  bushels of oats. Much of the wheat is  of a higher grade than any now raised  ln our West, and It is frequently *mdx-  ed with ours to -bring ours up to standard. No, the wonder is that the pompous gentlemen in the tall hats didn't  get their railroads through ten years  ago. Add to this that all save the Hill  undertaking are bolstered up with vast  land grants, and, now and then, with  "cash subsidies,,and the wonder grows.  No, the engineer ls our man. Of the  two types, tha man who is risking  other people's money Is neither so picturesque nor so interesting as the man  "who-is-rlsMnff-his-lifer���������It-is-the^-en*-  glneer ;who Is conquering this ifclt, and  perhaps greatest,,, frontier.  Edmonton.  ���������Edmonton Is the jumplng-off place  for all North-Western Canada, the  place where town and wilderness strike  hands. Here In Washington Square  the prosperous little city on the Upper  Saskatchewan seems even farther  away than its accredited 2,500 miles.  It ls 800 miles west of Winnipeg, and  it lip some .little way .north of that  fifty-third parallel, beyond whioh, If  one ls to believe Mr. Rex Beach, the  piainxrirohr tne lips Ot a. wnnnysieai ora  trader, I gave up my hope of finding a  frontier. I surrendered to the spirit of  Jasper street, Prince Rupert, with Its  electrio lights and its automobiles. I  merely shook a listless head when a  talkative young man put the age-old  question, "What's your line?'' So he  was here, tool Behind a certain prosaic waistcoat, a spark had flickered  out After the engineer, the traveling  man; after the traveling man, the  steam plough; after the steam plough,  the grand piano; that Is the way they  build up empires to-day.  How He Got His Cherries.  We hear a lot nowadays of the scarcity of farm labor, and of the dilemma  in which farmers find themselves to  secure the gifts of a bounteous Providence. But The Clinton New Era caps  the climax with a story, which is too  good not to reproduce: "A good joke is  told at the expense of one of Clinton's  Independent gentlemen, who -having  made provision for the picking of his  cherries with a certain person who afterwards found it impossible to fulfil hia  contract, went into the orchard, cut the  valuable tree down, stripped It of Its  heavily-laden limbs, and proceeded te  pick fruit 'under th* shade of the old  apple tree.'"  Kidney Disease  on the Increase  But-Prevention and Cure are Readily Obtained by the Use of  DR. CHASE'S KIDNEY-LIVER PILLS.  An East Indian Tragedy.  Here la a shocking tale of superstition from British India: "Ten Indians,  of whom five were women; have perished by Are, the result of blind credulity and religious superstition. , Seven  were burned alive and three died as the  result of burns. A fanatic at Vasad who  claimed to be a god partially filled a  pit with wood and Invited his followers  to Jump ln with him before he applied  a light. On his assurance that they  would dbtaln a glimpse of paradise  swrhlle the flames should do them no hurt  four men and five women joined him.  The fanatic kindled the fire, but no  sooner was the scorch of the flame felt  than piercing shrieks for help arose  from the pit. Ropes were thrown to the  victims, but only three were brought  to the surface, and these were fatally  burned."

Recent reports of the New York  Board of Health prove that mortality  from kidnoy disease is greatly on tho  ncrease.  Bright's disease as well as the other  dreadfully painful forms of kidney  disease can usually be prevented and  cured by giving some attention to the  ���������diet and to the activity of the liver  and kidneys.  Excesses in eating and the use of  alcoholic drinks must be avoided, and  the filtering organs can best be kept  in good working order by the use of  Dr.   Chase!s  Kidney-Liver  Pills.  The derangements which lead to  Bright's disease usually have their  beginning in a torpid liver and there  is suffering from headaches, biliousness and indigestion before the kidneys fail and such symptoms appear  as backache, scanty, highly colored  urine, painful, scalding urination, deposits in urine, etc.  Mr. James J. Jenson, Olds, Alta.,  writes:���������"I have been troubled considerably with lame back, which I  suppose came from derangements of  the kidneys,  and I have never been  able to find a treatment that was so  prompt and effective in curing this  ailment as Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver  Pills. At two different times in my  life this preparation has entirely  cured me of this trouble, and of lato  years 1 have found it unnecessary to  use any mediciae whatever. I  feel it my duty to add this statement  to the many others which I seo in recommendation of this excellent medicine."  Mrs. J.C.Johnston, Carman, Man.,  writes:���������"I have been a great sufferer from kidney trouble and have used  Dr. Chase's Kidney-liver Pills with  very marked benefit. I cannot say  too much for this medicine as it  seemed to be the only treatment that  suited my case."  Dr. Chase's Kidney-L ver Pills succeed where ordinary kidney medicines  fail, because of their direct and combined action on th������ liver and kidneys.  This has been proven in thousands of  case- of serious and complicated diseases of the kidneys. One pill a dose,  25 cents a box, at &.*. dealers, or Edmanson, Bates & Company, Toronto.

If one were to attempt the somewhat hazardous feat of walking duo  east from Edmonton, It would be found  neoessary to swim the upper waters of  Hudson Bay before fetching up on the  coast of Labrador, All this sounds very  remote and inaccessible. It suggests  rather the Interior recesses of Greenland than the pastoral charms of an  Iowa or an Illinois; and If carried away  from New York, buttoned Inside a prosaic waistcoat, what I took to be the  emotions of tho explorer, my ignorance  was not, I prefer to think, unique.  A City of Contrasts,  Edmonton Is a city of banks and a  board of trade; of department stores  a block long and a good many storeys  high; of paved streets and brick and  stone buildings; of well-to-do men In  frock coats or In trim riding breeches  and puttoos; of prettily-gowned women; of tho latest thing ln automobiles, of clubs, churches, and polo  grounds.

The managers and box-office keepers of London theatres tell strange  stories of tho eccentricities of their  patrons,  A certain gentleman, for Instance,  has never missed a single performance  at the Vaudeville theatre since the first  day of "The Belle of Mayfair." The  curious point about him is that ho al*  ways takes two stalls, reserving one  of them for hLs hat and coat. At Daly's  theatre there Is also a patron who for  many weeks has never missed a per*  formanco- and has Intimated that h*  wants tho seat���������In tho dress circle-  reserved until his leave of absence from  his regiment ln India expires.

She was ouly two weeks  from boarding school, but In those two  weeks things had happened. Spencer  Baird had had a bitter quarrel with his  son and had disowned him and then  had sent a peremptory summons for  his ward, wishing to see her before he  died, the telegram stated.  In this short space she had made the  long journey, cared for the dying man  as she could and, against her protest,  been made heiress of the Three Bars  and the other property, and now, death  coming suddenly, she was alone on the  ranch, with all the cowboys watching  the herds at the dry season bottom  lands, a day's Journey away. The owner had been too ill for removal, so had  been left to her care and the cook's,  and the cook, seeing his opportunity,  had loaded a horse with booty and ridden away. Persis did not discover it  until the man was a mile from the  ranch house, and then ber guardian lay  dying.  As; she rose from the motionless form  she hesitated a moment, then went out,  closing the door reverently behind her.  It might be two days, perhaps three,  before any of the cowboys would return, and she must have help.  The corral was only a few yards  away, and in it was a well broken  horse which had been given ber by  Spencer Baird. She had only a vague  idea of the cowboys' position, the direction and that it.was a day's journey  with herds, and from a few words of  the cook she knew there was a small  frontier town off that way sonde where,  but whether this ^icle or beyond tbe  dry season bottom she did not know.  Another thing she did not know, and  that was the fickleness of the Dakota  weather. Though late in October, it  "~waniM^a~Tiine mornlnf- ^Henrilie"  started across the, prairie. Two hours  later a chill whiff of wind touched her  lightly, and there was a haziness blurring the horizon behind. But she was  bending over the horse's neck, urging  him to greater speed and thinking of  the rigid form behind, and she did not  BEOAN TO READ HURRrBDLY FROM A BOOK.  notice until a whirl of flno snow struck  ber face, apparently from a cloudless  ���������ky, Ten mlnutos later sho was In the  midst of a Dakota bllszurd.  After that there was nothing but to  urge tlie horse ou���������no direction, no possibility of turning back against such  fury, only just to trust to the animal's  Instinct and not think.  But strange things somotlmos happen oven In a bllsjsnrd which seoras to  bold nothing but death, Perhaps It  was chance, possibly somotlilng else,  maybe merely tbe horse's superior  sense of direction, but at length, when  tbe girl's body bad grown numb and  ber mind was beginning to wander, tbe  animal stopped suddenly, with bis nose  pressed against a door,  And It almost seemed at If sbe were  expected, for the door was flung open,  and eager, solicitous bands lifted ber  from tbe saddle nnd hurried her Inside.  "Tho poor dear!" a woman's voice  VAcmiUi-tal Ut,'lwt������Jtf ������vu-S liuu Uu^mIct.  '"Who'd bare thought of her h*lrt$  caught in a storm liko this? But It  was brave of ber to keep on.

He was assisted to  his feet and Persis led to a position  beside him; then an old man slipped  in front of them and began to read  hurriedly from a book. Presently he  turned to the young man.  "Do you take this young woman to  be your wife?" he asked.  "Woman���������out In this wild country,"  murmured the young man, "needs help.  Of course, give her my life���������everything  I can do���������glad to. Yes, yes, of course."  "And you"���������to Persis���������"do yon accept this young man to be your lawful  husband?"  Persia gazed about Inqulrim-Jr. and  ,u������v uei uumoea mma penetrated tne  thought that they were expecting her  to say yes. So she-muttered yes and  tried to smile.  There were a few more quick sen  fences, a . perfunctory congratulation,  and then the old man humped himself  anxiously into his overcoat.  "See you again in the morning," he  said to the young maq. "You can let  the fee go until then. No time to wait  now. Goodby all, and thank you, Mr.  Wells"���������to their host���������"for helping me  so In this."  "That's all rlstfit." answered the host  good naturedly.  "I'm grau to help you  in a thing of this sort, but you're mistaken about the name. I'm John  Briggs. Sam Wells is on tbe other  side of the street."  The old mah stopped short in the  humping process.  "Isn't this the Ravine?"  "No; it's the Gulch.   The Ravine's!  across." i  "What!" in consternation. "And  isn't this man Vance Green of the Two  outfit, who made.an appointment with  me by letter?"  "No, it's young Baird, and I think ,  from what I've heard of her that the  girl's the old man's ward. You didn't  give any names, so I thought it was  all right. It seemed natural the son  and ward should get married, and, with  the old man sick and the son sent off,  tills was the only way. Well" in su-.  preme disgust, "you've certainly made  a mess of it.   What!   Going?"  "Yes, I must." The old man looked  at the figure which was again reclining  on the couch, lasplng Into unconsciousness, and at the girl, now seated and  gazing about wonderlngly. "No use  trying to explain to them now," he  -saidr���������"Pll���������be-ln���������tomorrow��������� and���������and-  try to make it right."  But when he arrived at the Gulch  the next day he found young Baird In  the act of assisting Persis to her sad- I  die.  The young man's own horse stood I  near.  The blizzard toad passed, and it  was again like a June day.  "It's all right, parsou," young Baird  said beamingly. "Persis and I talked  it ovor this morning aud found out  who we are. It was because I refused  to marry her that father and I quarreled. I couldn't accept an unknown  girl offhand that way, of course. But  Persis tells me that she is satisfied,  and I���������well, I don't think there's any  need for mo to express myself on the  subject now I've met her, I hope  you'll all como out and see us and be  neighborly. Now we'll go and look  after father. And-oh, yes, here." He  slipped something Into the old man's  hand and then raised himself to his  saddle and rode away, the girl by bis  side. As they swung off across the  prairie the old man looked nt bis fee.  It was the largest ho had ever received.  Disraeli's Retirement,  In 1876 Mr, Disraeli was raised by  the queen to the peerage under tbe  tltlo of Lord Beaconsfleld, and he left  the house of commons before the newa  of his elevation to tho bouse of lords  bad been made public. His withdrawal from tbo stage where be bad played  so long tbe leading part in a manner  obviously devised to avoid any sort of  ovation was in accordance wltb tbo  dignity which characterized tbe remaining years of bis life after the defeat of tbt Conservatives, wben tbt  general election of 1880, In consequence  of tbe Midlothian campaign, bad ter*  minuted bts publlo career. Mo applicant for his opinions on any subject  ever received a postal card from Lord  Beaconsfleld, No speech was ever  mado by bim at railway stations. Bt  died ln 1881 as bt bad llvod-alone, a  stranger amid a strange people. Af tor  bis death bis memory became to Eng-  llab Conservatives an object of almost  sentimental affection; to English Radicals It remained an object of never  falling animosity. But to Englishmen '  of all politics, to Conservatives and  Liberals alike, bis life continues to bt  a constant puwle, an unsolved enigma.,  ���������London Standard, t  EGG EATERS  W. E. Br-ewa Telia Bow to Get ike  Better of Tk������ae Pemtm.  If you have been in the poultry  business for any length of tifAf you  have no doubt bad at some time experience with egg eaters, one of the  worst vices poultry breeders have to  contend with, says W. B. Brown of  Mansfield, 0. If you have, the question Ui what to do with them. If of  common stock this is easily answered���������  send them to market and buy others  In place of them, this being the only  sure and lasting cure. But with the  fancier or breeder of thoroughbred  stock lt is a different proposition, as  It is often the .valuable show bird that  is tbe guilty party, having learned the  vice in the show coop, and when one  bird gets the habit the pen mates soon  learn it too.  The question with the breeder is how  to get the eggs from these hens to use  for hatching, as we long ago gave up  the idea of curing them after trying  all kinds of sure cures, like clipping  end off bill, feeding eggs filled with  various nostrums, laying numerous  plaster of paris eggs around the runs  and in the nests, but bave not found  anything that beats the confirmed egg  eaters permanently, as they would soon  come back to it, even after a year,  Out way has been to make nests  that will keep them from getting the  eggs. The best is to take two cheese  boxes or boxes of any kind of right  size for the nest box, cut a hole in  center of the bottom of one about two  Inches in diameter, make a nest with  straw, or, better, excelsior, of the right  Bhape, pretty deep, cover with burlap  cut to fit, tack the' edges, tacking under the hole so the eggs will not break  by striking them in rolling through the  hole. Bore numerous small holes in the  box and sew through the burlap nest  and all to keep them in shape. Then  take a plaster nest egg, put a holo  through and sew it fast near the bottom, but not so as to keep the eggs  from rolling through the hole in the  box below. To make the lower box  use the same material, make highest in the middle under the hole so tho  egg will roll away out of reach of the  hens, and they will soon get so they  will not stand around watching the  hens on the nest.   Have one or two ot  TheSenn"elch breedlng~perana~tllc*S"  all others out so they -will be compelled  to use them.

HE HAD REASONS.  9tfhT m Certain Han Decided t������ Be-  e������me Hard of H<������rlna*.  A man who had traveled and observed much decided to become deaf,   j  "It is a misfortune," he said, "but  there are compensatibns���������if one is not  too deaf. I spent two da?s recently in  a country hotel with a man who was  Just comfortably hard of hearing, and  he certainly had every reason tb consider himself a wonderfully wise man.  He was invincible in argument, Just  think what a pleasurable feeling of infallibility must come to a man who is  invincible In argument No matter  how absurd the position he took, he  was able to maintain It against all  comers. I know, because he lured me  Into various arguments and Invariably  overcame me. He would make a statement and I would flatly coutradict It.  But that made no difference to him. He  would accept my contradiction as an  Indorsement of his position and continue his dissertation. When I got a  chance I would advance a few arguments on the other side.  " *I am glad,' he would say calmly,  'that you accept my views.'  "'But I don't accept your views,'  I would protest  "'What!' he would cry. 'What did  you say?'  "I would go over ray argument again,  and he would make me repeat several  parts of lt three,or four times. Then  he would undertake to answer what I  bad said, Incidentally misquoting me.  I would correct bim, but it was a difficult and tiresome thing to do, and  finally I would let him ramble along.  "I tried to avoid him after that, but  It was no use. He w������,s convinced that  he had great persuasive powers, probably aa a result of practicing on others  like me, aud he wanted to"be sure that  I was converted to his views on everything. It set me to thinking of others  1 knew who were 'a little hard of hearing'���������not really deaf, you know���������and  I could see that there was some sort  of a compensation for each of them.  One fellow, who could hear nearly  everything else, never could hear & request for an increase, of salary, and  he wore out every man who asked for  one. That was the way with this deaf  controversialist���������he wore me out He  bad me tacitly pledged to every sort of  _an absurdity, and he was bj proud of  his success that he was strutting about  like a turkey cock. When I was leaving I heard him say to the landlord:  'Yes, he's,a pretty good fellow, but  uo match for me in an argument ^ 1  downed him every time and made him  own up to it'       ,  "So I've decided to become deaf or at  least 'a little hard of hearing.'"~  fudge.*'    _      ,        Wondcru of the Voice.

No dairyman can visit Holland without learning to.be a cleaner and* a better dairyman. Outside Holland, tht>-  European dairymen, in my opinion, are>  behind us in regard to cleanliness, but  we are not ln the same class .with Hoi-  land, says C. II. Eckels in Farm. Ftel&  and Fireside. It has been well anUl  that this remarkable country is a cow*������<-  paradise. Here she certainly receives  the best treatment of any place in that  world The farm buildings are all off  brick and of a uniform style. A common door leads directly from the kitchen into the cow stable. Here thr  cows remain constantly about seven-  months in the year and are cared tor  most carefully. They stand very closar  to the family in the affections of thi������  owner. In summer days they are ot������  grass constantly, and if a cold wind ox  rain comes tbey ore blanketed in Xber  pastures. At short intervals they exer  taken to the canals and washed. Behind each stall in the barn bangs ������'  string from the ceiling, which is tied  to the bush of the tail, so when she-  lies down it is not soiled. The Holland  cows, called Holstelns in America, a)>  though they do not come from Ho*-  stein, are a beautiful lot and respond!  to the unusual care with Immense*  yields of milk. Holland dairying teaches us that careful, kind treatment and*  comfortable surroundings pay handsomely when given to a dairy cow.  Prize Jersey a.
