In  most of the western Canadian towns  the local editor is as well known as  the mayor��������� or auctioneer. In small  communities it is dillicult, indeed,  well nigh impossible, for the writer  or publisher of a newspaper to resist!  tho pressure .that persistently forces'  him forward to the front rank in'  local affairs. Almost always a man  of intelligence, and frequently a man  of ability, by virtue of his profession familiar with, and an authority  on, all matters of public interest, the  irresistible tendency is to compel  him, sooner or later,'-to' take posi-  .tions_of_^>ublic-_i:esponsi.biUty���������and  trust. To be able" to continuously  resist the pressure in this direction  is to argue personal unfitness, personal disinclination or unusual personal powers of resistance.  Mr. Purcell represents perhaps a  combination of -the two latter dualities. Thoso who. know him best esteem him one of tho very best newspaper men in Western Canada. Had  ho any aspirations to public   odice,  building of the Sun as he did aforetime to that of its competitor, and  with results as apparent. His striking success in this regard having, in  the smite town, twico demonstrated  his capacity and ability as director  of every department pf a newspaper,  is a record of which any man might  well be proud, and which has not  been duplicated by any othor journalist in the West.

It was always "I  seo tho Times snys so," And, now  that ho has charge of tho Sun, tho  saying Is tho same. A more complete  merging of the ideal liy of the man  with the paper he edits it would bo  dillicult to find than that of Mr.  I'u reelI.  1 It need not be thought, however,  that Mr, I'urcoll is an unapproachable recluse. On the contrary he is,  oxterlorlly nt lenst, the most nceos-  Blhle and popular of men, A constant stream of visitors drops Into  his ofllco, and in tho courso of a few  minutes chut thu genial editor has  ali-sorbod news and views bh a spongo  does water.

Then he dug  savagely in the bed of scarlet gera*  alums, irrespective of the plauts' good.  "Why doesn't the master come  home?" he demanded querulously, with  the anxiety of one who had lovingly  followed "the master's" life up from  the days of white cotton socks and sailor collars.  The trowel dropped from his hand  as his eyes turned back to the tall  figure in its trailing white draperies.  Her dark eyes had been too filled with  woe to notice the old gardener, lier  arms were crossed upon her bosom  ns though she would thus hold down  r  HEK I7KGKK8 HAD GONE S.WUTMiX TO HEB  TUIlbAT.  the tumult that boat there. Ilere was  the very center and core of the master's life, old Jerry knew it, and yet���������  His face changed suddenly as though  an evil cloud had passed before the  sun's brightness. His very body seemed to become gnarled and twisted,  while the hands closed and unclosed  suggestively at his sides, driving the  nnlls into the hard palms. Every  breath he drew was an unspoken malediction upon tho man who came  through the gnteB to meet his mistress.,  "You're there, nro ye, ye black hearted sarpaut!" he panted.  His heart seemed to die within him  ns he hiensured his strength ngalnst  his opponent's. With a sense of helpless iundoquncy his old figure eolltipsed  tremblingly, But tlio habit of years  in extremity wns strong upon him.  His head fell forward reverently on his  brenst.  "God Almighty," be breathed, "this  makes tho third time this week, nn*  I dunno���������I dunno whora's Mr, Aleck!"  Tho mnn ho bated was walking bareheaded besido tho mistress. Their  'tops turned to n tnll shrubbery nt tho  other ond of tho grounds. Jerry made  n hobbllhg detour by tho buck of the  house nnd reached Jt first. Ho wan  on his knees ngnln, trowel ln hnnd,  but hidden,, by tho dense growth when  they passed.  "Why do you submit to this neg������  loot?" the ovon, insidious tono wna  urging. "Relieve mo, I hnve not told  you ono-hnlf of whnt hns como unbidden to my knowledgo. Constance, tho  wny of oscapo is nlwnys open!"  Old Jerry's breath enmo In hnrd, dry  puffs ns ho listened.

Thon he got slowly on  his feet, seeming to grow younger nnd  stronger ns ho did so. The blood of  tho fighting raco still boat ln his veins  in spite of his so verity years, it biassed  in the blue eyes uuder their aluxagy  brows, promising wnr to th* death boforo thoso he loved and served were injured,  All that day be watched the bouse  nnd grounds untiringly, His mistress  bad bidden ber visitor goodby nt tbe  gnto and walked slowly bnck to th*  bouse n* though nil life nnd hope wore  gone from her, and he saw ber no more.  At midnight he Installed Johnny, Ur,  Aleck's favorite groom, in his place.  "Don't ye mnke no sound nor wort,"  ht admonished, "an' ye don't need to  know whnt yer bere for, bat If ye sot  anny wan goin* or eomln' call m*. An*  Johnny, b'r. If ye could aunywny get  word to tbe master in tbe mornin* to  come home 'tis makin' yer sowl you'd  be."  When morning came he relieved  Johnny at 6 o'clock, the hitter huvhc?  seen no one "comin* or Roin'," ;mh1 air in  took up his surveillance of the hoi?--e.  It was dusk when at last the figure bo  had been looking for camo slowly  down the steps. She had almost reached  the gate when Jerry, his old heart bearing in his throat, stepped ov.t on the  gravel walk beside her.  "I dunno if you noticed, ma'am." he  said casually, to'tebiug his hat. "but  I'm afraid 'tis dying the rosebush be  the south wall is."  She had halted, looking at him in  uncertainty, bewilderment for a moment displacing the listless despair of  her faco.  "'Twill be ten year ago come tomorrow week since I planted it." Jerry  wont on rcm'.nisccutly, "I mind well  'twns the very day the master brought  ye home, ma'am. 1 can see yea now,  stnndiu' hand in hand lookin' at me"���������  Her lingers had gone swiftly to her  throat as if the lace there strangled  hor. Jerry watched her for a moment.  "An' sure there never was such a  tree tor blossomin'," he went on slowly. "I used to think tbat the love in  the eyes of yez both that day blessed  it. 'Sure 'tis a love bush,' 1 sez to me-  self. An' 'tisn't in yer two arms ye  could carry the roses on it when it begun to bloom, an' they tho "sweetest  that ever grew. But lately���������somehow  ���������t dunno'1���������  His voice had trailed off Into the  inexpressibly sad monotone of his race.  The slender figure before him quivered,  her hands twisting themselves convulsively in the folds of her cloak.

She moved stumblingly away from  him across the grass to the south  ��������� wall. Jerry scarcely breathed as he  followed aud stood behind her. Oh,  the wealth of blossom the love bush  had onco .borne! She remembered how  tho old gardener delighted to bring the  fragrant armfuls to her on the anniversary of its planting���������the day that  Aleck had brought her home. Now���������  She looked at the blighted, twisted  leaves, clinging as if^for shelter to the  wall, and a sob, which was tho upheaval of all the torture and despair in ber  hwiii.^o:x>_.heii_deJ.icate���������tbi'oat._._Her_  face.-! as she turned it to Jerry was an  agony.  "Save it!" she pleaded. "Oh. Jerry, if  it is not quite dead, save it!"  "Yes, ma'am." But Jerry's voice was  husky and he drew his coat sleeve  across his eyes. " 'Tls safe enough  she is now, glory be to God!" he added  in a whisper.  He stood in the shadow of the wall  until sho had stolen back to-the houso.  carrying the ono poor blossom of the  love bush, with ���������her. Then he made his  way to where beyond the grounds lay  a strip of moonlit road.  At sight of the figure which paced  impatiently back and forth there Jerry's body was contorted again, but this  time with savage triumph.  "Aye," he hissed slowly, "ye may  walk, nn' ye may walk ag'ln, an' ye  may keep on wali-cln' till tlie feet drop  off ye nu' tho DivJI gits his owu-but  ye'll never git what yer wiiitln' for-  an' the Lord bo, praised for lt!"  It was the ono rogrot of Jerry's life  thnt "he wns'in bed and-asleep that  night when the master, got home. Evidently Johnny, with the aid of n siujden  nnd suspicious aliment of tho hay  mare, had "mnde his soul" to noma  purposo tbnt morning. The master had  uri'lvod tit 10 o'clock, according, to Mrs.  'Riley, tho cook, nnd. to the best of, her  belief, he nnd tho mistress luul talked  nil night.

Susseationa For Alluring: Breokfaat*  ou Snmmer Days.  In summer days the, veranda should  constitute a coutinuous "living room,"  and here may be presented at times, if  not permanently, the family breakfast,  luncheon and S o'clock tea.  When the children's appetites begin  to lag, as often happens during the  summer, tho distressed mother will  Ond gratifying results through offering  a dainty, alluring refection on the  homo porch, advises the New Idea  Magazine.  Suggestions for breakfast on tha veranda in summer days may be made  as follows: Fruits���������berries, apricots,  melons, pears, peaches, grapes, varying  these frequently; cereals of light character, cooked and uncooked, dispensing  with oatmeal until colder weather.  Tho chafing dish may bo brought into  service in presenting such features as  stewed kidney; tripe, creamed or a la  lyoniialse; smoked beef, cream-ad or  with scrambled eggs; minced hum on  toast, cro.imod codfish, scrambled eggs'  and tomatoes, eggs In various forms  and omelets of ham, parsley and rice.  Water cress should become a staple  accompaniment to this season's breakfast; crisp radishes and cucumbers  may bo served too. "Popovers," light  breakfast mufiins, breads, toast of en-'  tire wheat bread, etc., should be presented.  Where tho breakfast does not include  moat, the following formula will give a  nutritious, inviting, satisfying feature:  Make a batter as follows: Mix a tablespoonful of butter with half a cupful  of soft boiled rice; and tho yolks of  two eggs, well beaten, ,and a cupful  of milk; sift in next half a cupful of  flour, a tablespoonful of yellow cornmeal and a vory scant teaspoonful of  baking powder. Add a dash of salt to  the whites of two eggs and beat to a  stiff froth. Fold this in quickly and  lightly to tho remainder of tho mixture. Pour into small layer cake pans  and bake in a hot oven until a golden  brown, which will take from twelve to  fifteen minutes. Remove ono of tho  layers to the serving plate, bottom sido  up. Butter well over the entire surface. Placo another layer over this  and butter generously as you would  spread jelly on a layer cake. The top  layer is to be placed top side up and  also well buttered.' Cover all with a  .deep dish and place iu the oven until  -ready-to-be-servedi ;   Toothsome Dishes With Corn.      jj  A toothsome baked corn pudding calTa*  for one quart of scraped com pulp,.  four eggs, threo tablespoonfuls of flour,,  one pint of milk, one teaspoonful of  salt, one-third of a teaspoonful of pepper nnd one heaping tal'.espoonful of ,  butter. It is baked in a moderate oveni  until set in tho center. The same com-',  pound, without the flour nnd milk, may'  be used ns a filling-for. tomato* and'  pepper shells, says Table Talk. Ilia!  old Indian name of succotash at onco"  reminds us of tender little lima beans  and corn pulp cooked together. Somo  cooks Uko to add to this a slico or two  of salt pork or fat bacon, but this addition is, bettor applied to the dried or  canned artlclo than when brought, in  fresh from tho truck or kltcheu garden.  When left over on tho cob it may bo  cut off, highly seasoned with salt ond  pepper, mixed with, a white sauce,  turned into a dish, covered with buttered crumbs nud baked as a scallop,  or the corn and sauce', after ten minutes of slow cooking, can be poured  over dipped toast. Again tho cut corn  can bo mixed with an equal quantity  of thick butter mnde with Hour, milk,  baking-powder timl one or two eggs  and cooked as fritters. - Where uncooked pulp Is used for this dish very'  llttlo milk will be needed, ospeclnlly If  the corn Is young and juicy.  tutcht Vaney V.'oiU.

The day at the golf links developed  no. ^important incident.. I had a remarkably good time ���������enjoyed #everything, met strangers with an affability  quite foreign to my nature, took a deep  interest in golf, though it was a wholly  new game to me, and in flirtation,;  which was not a new game, yet different this time.

Naturally there was not a  word in it that remotely referred to  Miss Lamoine, of whose existence I  bad,no reason to suppose that he had,  ever heard. There was no mention of'  Sibyl. There^was merely the commonplace phrase, "You'll bo coming home  in a day or two."  Yes, I'd be coming home. A nice  kind of a prodigal, I had wasted my  heart. The thought went through my  head,, and grotesquely I was reminded  of a misreading of the Scripture committed many years ago by a fellow  scholar iu the Sunday school, "And  tliey killed hlra for a fatted calf."  That was what I had been, just a calf,  nnd killing would bo too good for me.  Knowing my father's wlsheu, I had  kicked up my heels, jumped the fence  and fallen in love with tho flrst female  of my species that had como iu my  way.  I sat down In a quiet comer of my  apartments to think the thing over.  The situation was somewhat peculiar,  nnd fortunately itsee-med to Involve no  misery to nny ono except myself. Beyond a doubt I was hard lilt. My head  and heart were full of thnt girl. Yet I  hod not made love to hor, not. tlio least  Iu thc world, If I had caiod lew, I  should-linvo eald moro. I had ofton  done ho, liar thnt I am In common with  other men.

Howovor, I  usually require considerable "aforma-  tion before taking importa**.* action,  and fnlllng In lovo Is Important.  In tn Ml** TninnlDe'n sfinrf 1n the  matter, I hnd no reason to suspect tlmt  Rbe cared seriously for me. It lay on  my niliul tliat I had boon malting a fool  of myself In o quiet. Inoffensive, gen-  tlemnnly way nnd that tlio lndy hnd  found tho upeetutio amusing. I was  faintly suspicious that -who liked to bo  nmtippd in tlmt fashion, Whether tlmt  notion were true or false, tlier*������ wat  an easy way of setting all things right.  I <ailed upon Ml������s Lamoine that  evening, and we bad a very frank and  "By...  Hobyard  Fielding  friendly talk, as it seemed to me. I  confided to her that there was a very  nice girl whom I had not seen in somo  years, uot since her childhood, in fact,  and she was now 19. She had beoa  a charming child, in every way lovable,  and I had no doubt that the promise  of ber youth had been in every way  fulfilled. Ih that statement it will be  observed that 1 stuck close, to my  father's word, but it sounded cold, I  needed something more to meet the  exigencies of the situation and to sustain my own spirits, which were getting rather low,, and so I dilated a  bit upon Sibyl's merits, using that gift  of easy, imaginative discourse which  some harsh persons have called lying.  Sibyl would uot have recognized herself had she been present,,but I felt  at the moment that she could uot have  helped being pleased. v  My father's heart was strongly set  upon the match, I said, and it wa3 a  great joy to me that my memories of  Sibyl* should be as they were, altogether charming and alluring. It was,  of course, too much to hope that she  would care for me. I could not venture to predict so fortunate an event.  If Miss Lamoine would not take it  as a bid for a compliment, I would say  that I regarded myself as a mere; joke.  The best that I could hope for was  that Sibyl would think sho could enjoy  laughing at mc all her life.  "Make her laugh all you can." said  Miss Lamoine, eying me iu her peculiar  way.   "Don't make her cry."  "You think mo'fickle," said I stupidly, and she floored me with the gentle  question:  "Why should I?" '  ���������*.- Without waiting for me to attempt  an answer she proceeded to speak kindly of my disclosure." She wai.- glad that  -I���������bad-s-tokl-hoi^-she���������was���������tla.t4om.Uby-  tny confidence; she wished ine all success and happiness.  I had introduced this subject very  well, considering that *l am, as a rule,  awkward and oycrpreclse in beginning  a new theme, though fluent enough  when once fairly started. It had seemed to grow naturally out of the conversation, and Miss Lamolne'a tact preserved the scene from the peril of being  too relevant. I could not specify a  word or a look of hers that gave tho  smallest hint that she guessed why I  had given her this page of family history. And yet 1 bore away from this  Interview the suspicion that she understood me perfectly and held lh regard to ray character and conduct an  opinion which I would glvo much to  know.

A squarely built, dark anc' somber young man was wedged in;o one,;  end of a window seat and a grer c cloud  of smoke was eddying round Lis head,  It appeared, when we were introduced,  that his name was Dcrringcv.  I dislike names that mea.i anything;  they should be all changed.by act of  the legislature into p.easant soiinding  "syllables or cornbhutioiis that can ���������fiig-  gost nothing��������� until one has learned to  associate them v, ith the persons themselves.

Why, for instance, -should.this handsome but somewhat tragic young man be ticketed for  all lite life as an old fashioned shooting  I'-on?  Mr. Derringer greeted me agreeably.  but he seemed not t,o be a loquacious  man. Cushlng was more silent than  I had ever before known hhu to be.  A "quiet smoke" was what I had been  invited to enjoy, and of a'certainty I  bad it. The stillness became oppressive after an hour or more, alid I took  a somewhat hasty leave.  At midnight I .was lying in a berth  of a sleeping car trying to" shut my  eyes in such a way that I should not  see Anna Laixioine's face looking at ine  out of the dark.  / dlhcovertd Hint tfc were nol. to he tthme,  didn't go, Instead I spent tho bourn in  n purpoi-elosfj fashion, consulting tlm������  tables with needless frequency nnd nlwnys m-lectlng a luter train.

EOVB all the other virtues I  admire self control. I would  rather do a foolish thing  calmly than make', the .wisest  possible decision by accident in a state  of mental confusion. This preference  for rational .conduct asserted itself  strongly while I was eating breakfast  on the train. Having finished the meal,  I lit a cigar in the smoking compartment and sat down to "think the thing  out."  It is possible to be mistaken about  the functions of the brain. The brain  possesses a nominal authority: It is  the pilot, and the heart is tho engineer.  The pilot rings the bell, but lie doesn't  stop the machinery. As it usually  stops at bis command, he grows into  the pleasing belief that he controls it.  Then comes the sad and awful day  wlu'11 be rings one bell to slow down,  another to stop and two to back, but  the wheels go on turning full speed  ahead. It is no use swearing down the  Tp^king^uberwy'Wieird: rf'tliSfe'f  no response to the bell, talking won't  mend matters. Keep cool and enjoy  the smash up. It is going to bo a good  ono. And hang on to the wheel. Though  the craft be^ running away, you may be  able to pick out a soft spot in the rocks.  This crude little allegory will serve  as a description of my entire day on  that train. I couldn't stop the emotional part of my nature. It had never behaved so before. I had found out  upon several occasions that I was becoming too much interested, and sometimes I had rung the bell a little late,  but there had been no disasters. This  tlmo there was one lu plain sight, right  ahead. For It was a perfect certainty  that If I should meet Sibyl while my  heart was ln this condition I should  wreck every mutual prospect of our  lives. ,   *'  It would bo.grossly unfair to her.  Beyond a doubt she must know of my  father's wish, nnd no stretch of modesty could blind mo to tho fact that  sho must bo In Rome small degree favorably disposed toward mo. Otherwise she would have checked my father's hopes. I could uot think of Sibyl  as.humbly subservient In such n matter. So far as I could remember hor at  nil. It seemed to mo thnt ns a child sho  had exhibited a romarkablo strength  nud evenness of purpose. My father  would bo the last man In tlio world to  break the will or eradicate the Individuality of any child In his core. IIo  was ono who would read unturo's plan  and accept It for tho best, striving only  to noo that It should ho perfectly carried out. Ho Sibyl would be a eld with  a mind of hor own,  She must remember rao, of course,  far better than 1 remembered ber, I  hnd changed somowluit to tlto eye, but  the alteration was a vast Improvement.  Bho had been n keen child hy all that  my fathor used to tell mo about ber.  No doubt Bho know'wo very well. It  was fair to assume that I must In somo  way havo impressed her favorably, so  thnt sho could think of mo with no  very great rebellion when my father  talked of me to her. rtenlly It was hard  for mo to take that view, but there waa  no other. Terhaps the child remembered how I used to slug to her ono summer when I was at home for a week or  two. Sho must hnvo been 10 years old  then, nnd iho waa very fond of music-  must have beeu, ui-ieed, to xxUxud tuy  singing for two or threo hours at a  stretch In tho dark drawing room of  an ovenlug. It waa nlwnys dark, for  the child said thnt a light spoiled mu-  | ale for her. In reality she wna bain*  ! ful and afraid that I would look at  hor, afraid that I would see tho teara  Bho shed at sentimental aongs. I wan  singing heart breakers thnt lumraor,  having suffered somo slight damage lo  the mutter of ti young lady ivbo taar*  rl������l a noi her fellow.  All of which ls merely to say tbat  Sibyl must hare reconciled herself to  rue as a manifest destiny and tbat it  would bo utterly Impossible for me to  reconcile myseir to ner wnue my ueart  was raging for Anna Lamoine. I should  Inevitably dislike her, especially as she  ��������� eould have no strong personal attraction, no charm to catch the eye. If she  had possessed physical beauty, meeting  her might well have set me'-right, for  beauty counts at the stsrt,6and qualities are so slow.  I hnd no doubt that she was a splendid woman in eail that makes a soul  n'icj;fiJuminos3g���������,than. tlie dull average.  My father was sure of it, and really In  all tills internal struggle I was greatly  Influenced''by his Opinion. If lie believed that Sibyl was the ideal woman  for nie, she;probably was. That's the  fact about it, and 1 never quito let go  of that conviction. But that was in my  head; my heart had a conviction of its  own, which was that I stood upon tho  verge of an awful mistake; my heart  was "afraid. It said to me: "What are  you doing here? Go find Anna Lamoine. You have a chance now. Why  did sho run away from New York as  soon as you had told ber, in effect, that  you were engaged to another girl?  What was it that your friend Cushing  thought was 'too bad?' Don't be so  modest; the girl had begun to love you,  but while you're spending all this summer trying to love somebody else what  will she be doing?"  The result of it all was that I fell  Into, a sort of panic. I lost my wits  In the face of this problem for the solution of which I had no adequate data.  Upon the one hand I really knew nothing about Sibyl; upon the other I knew  next to nothing about Anna. I knew  hot my own state. I was not in love;  I was merely entranced by tho mystery  of,a woman's eyes, by the sweet unceasing echo of her voice, by the  witchery of a beautiful puzzle, banking  as the words one hears in a dream and,  waking, vainly struggles to remember.  So far as j attained to any plan cf  action, it seemed best to be honest, to  tell my father the exact facts and then,  with his consent, start off upon a quest  that should resolve my doubts, A renewal of ray acquaintance with Miss  Lamoine might free me from her. spell.  It would require some time to find her,  for I doubted -whether Cushing would  give me her address if I should telegraph him' for it, and I had no other  clew. By the time I had found her she  might bo engaged to a multimillionaire  with two steam yachts, and I could return to Sibyl with that ease of mind  which the wise preserve in the midst  ^ItheirllMirTfoTthTuiialfarnaUle^  I rode upon a slow train, due at 0  o'clock In the morning. My fathor  met me with a carriage. He was In a  cheerful mood, such as I rarely attain  at. that hour in the day, and cheerfulness ls a great advantage. Moreover, my courage Is always weakest  before breakfast. I dreaded our interview.  We shook hands, and.I'Inquired regarding his health, which I knew to be  perfect by the look of him. Thon I  said, "How is Sibyl?" because the question would please him. He replied  ���������that sho was very we'll nt the last report,  "Lnst reportI" I echoed, pausing, with  one foot on tho step of the,.carriage.  "Do you mean that she hasn't come  homo yet?"  "Sibyl Is out of town," said bey extending a hand as If to help me up.  Here was a chance for procrastination, which ls my favorite amusement.  With a feeling of relief I snuk Into the  seat beside hlra, and wo conversed upon unimportant topics until we reached  the house.  Tlio old home looked much tho same  from tho street, but I found considerable changes within. Tho furnishings  wero more luxurious, the'arrangement  of the rooms upon tho grouud floor was  different, and at tho roar u vory elegant library with a domed roof bad  been added.  The stairs sweep round and bring ono  toward tho front of tho houso. At tho  bond of them my father oponed a door.  "Sibyl's sitting room," said lie.  It wus u well lighted apartment, but  hml a eovere look. Tho walls seemed  hare, and I noted a good many heavy  books on tho tablca, Tlio placo gave  mo a chill. I would hnvo wlshod to  too a lot of photographs all about, with  protty knlckknncks and souvenirs, An  eatcl stood In a corner stripped and  deflate as a trellis In wlntor, and there  wns not a sign of tho nrtlst'a work,  I passed on somewhat hastily to my  own quarters at the rear of tlio house.  Tliey bad been refitted, enlarged and  greatly beautified: yet all tho old familiar thlngji were there, and tlio place  wni surely home. I am a cotd blooded  creature, as a rule, and I was positively  grateful for a touch of sentiment here.  I sat down upon tbe arm of a chair  and eujoyetl uy emotion.  "l������ut I ha\*.u'i *tcu iuui twin* yet,"  said I.  He.led the way. I found the apart-  wonts absolutely unchanged, and remembered tbnt my mother had arranged tnetu mua many years ago.  "You'ro a bit disappointed," said my  father,  I stored at him,  "You seemed to mlis something."  said be, "all through tbe borne. I noticed It"  "I was looking for a picture of Sibyl.**  k.iKI 1. "U It poMiliU* thut tUeie Isu't  a portrait of ber anywhere*'"  My father hesitated.  "She's bidden them til," f/tld be at  It-fcOix  Poor child," said I.   "It's a terrible  "Sibyl's sitting room," said he.  thing for a girl to feel that way about  her looks. It's one of tho worst tragedies in the world."  My father laughed, sweetly, softly  and with great enjoyment. When ho  had ceased, we looked each other in tbe  eyes for more than a minute.

Thp average citizen, if asked wh^t  w.;s taught at Oxford, would probably  reply. "Useless learning." And in  many ways it is a true answer, for  its aim is not to turn out doctors,  lawyers and merchants, ready made,  but men with carefully trained minds,  fitted not for this or that profession,  but for the whole conduct of life.

IM  Prostration.  For Months Mrs.  Myles  Lay a Helpless Sufferer-  Attributes Restoration 4o  Dr,  Chase's  Nerve  Food.  Mrs. John Myles, senior, of South  Wood'slee, Essex County, Ont., is  well known throughout the surrounding country because of her work,  among the sick and suffering, and it  was on account ot over-exertion in  this regard that her health broke  down, and she lay -weak and helpless,  a victim of nerrous prostration. Doctors could not help her, and sho dissolved to try Dr. Chase's Nerve  Food. As a result she has been  thoroughly "restored, and by recommending this treatment to others  has been tbe means of bringing back  health and happiness to many a  weakened and discouragpd suSerer  from diseases" of the.nerrw.  Mrs. Myltfs writes.���������"When I began tlie use of Dr. Chasers Nerve  Food, I was -confined to my bed witb  what the doctors siaid was nervous  prostration. My stomach was very  weak, acd I could not.sleep at all  for any length of time. Nervous  chills-and trembling- would come over  me   at   times. and I seemed to be  getting weaker and weaker all the  time. There was also pains on  top of tbe head, which caused mo  much suffering and anxiety.  "After" using half a dozen boxes of  Dr. Chase's Nerve Food I began t.  gain in weight and to feel stronger.  ������������������Since then I have been gradually restored to health, and in looking back  can say that tbe . improvement has  been something wonderful.

If you buy a range a  few dollars cheaper than a  Kootenay, and it burns  from 15 to 35 per cent,  more fuel, what do you  gain ? Nothing ; but you  actually lose money, besides  putting up with all the  inconveniences of an old-  style range.  Tlie Kootenay i.s equipped with every known device  for reducing the consumption of fuel.  Sold by all enterprising dealers.  WRITE FOR BOOKLET  A  lillii  !.*;j'-?  \;B.
