RUSES OF SMUGGLERS  HAPPENINGS  ALONG  BORDER  OF  CANADA AND MAINE.  -Soys Who Coasted Tea Into the United States���������A Farmer With a Trick  Granary Close to the Boundary Line  f   ���������When the Plumber Was a Help���������  j    How  a   Barrel   of  Gin   Passed  tho  | ��������� Wary Customs Men.  'Any person that lives on the border  -(between Maine and New Brunswick  (and doesn't know anything about smuggling must toe deaf and dumb and blind..  There are many ways to evade the officers, says The New York Sun.  In the Madawaska country, between  ���������Van Buren and Port Kent, the settlers  ���������oure the French Acadians, and all the  customs officers in   Maine,   with   the  ��������� Sturgis deputies thrown in if they were  vithere, could not prevent them from  .getting their gin from across the river.  'I was there once, when the good women  <of Aroostook, backed up by the law,  iaent'a band of officers to prevent the  g������oor "Frenchman from spending hia  anoney for gin, writes a Parkhurstman  l������n The Lewiston Journal. The water  ^as 'high, there was no fording and  ���������������ivery boat and ferry for miles was  ������������������watched. It happened that Xavier G���������  "Was out of gin. He kept a public  v3������ouse, and nothing for his guests to  ^rink did not suit him at all.  But he had something up his sleeve  t������o fool the officers. A barrel of gin  itrom the Canadian side was 'hauled  "through the woods to the river, lashed  sfco the under side of a log with hay  xsvire %nd sent adrift with a man on the  log. Now, a log can be held at a certain angle in the river and the current  ���������"���������will carry it across as it does a ferry -  1 cboat���������rivermen often cross in this man-  Efter and it excites no suspicion. There  ���������was plenty of gin and molasses at Xav-  v.tler's that day for dinner.  Coasting That Paid.  ,"' In ���������"'one place  the line runs several  "niniles along a side hill.     I once saw  A gang of boys coasting on the crust  j^ome forty rods from the road.  At the  ifoot of tho hill an the American side  fWas a wood lot, and "big'pile of sawed  (.Wood.   The boys had an old pung, and  i.-ft close observer would   have   noticed  :vthat they always went in behind an old  ���������*!S)faTiron-th-e-6anad*la-n-side-to-st-artr't-heii-  ��������� '.they would go like the wind clear down  ���������ito  the  wood  pile   in  behind    the  fir  ��������� Jifcrees.  And that very morning a man with a  ' -JSouble team was there loading wood;  .the blue jays in the trees probably no-  '���������.-iticed that Ins was building a funny load  V:Jn his big sled box;  it was hollow in  "v������he middle with woodpiles at the sides  and ends, and perhaps they noticed that  ���������avery time the pung load of shouting  fiooys came down the hill they brought a  ' chest of tea.     The load was carefully  ���������covered with wood, taken to a village  tfnerchant, driven in the back yard and  deposited in the cellar.  One of my neighbors once suddenly  fjaad a call to preach and finally went  < aver Into New Brunswick to spread the  ���������������������������Oospel.     In three weeks he returned,  * and when ho came back he hitched his  ������ old horse In the village street, near the  ���������Custom house, and had a prayer meeting  In tho street, tout  no one mistrusted  that ho had fifty costly silk dress patterns in the bottom of his old wagon.  ,{ A Mysterious Granary.  i rwr.

The day dawned bright and clear and  throw his leg over the saddle of an  up-to-date bicycle, and go scorching  off like a merry schoolboy, That is  Premier Whitney.  The Premier is a much younger-  looking man than he really is, and  most people who see him for the first  time are surprised when told just how  many years he has to his credit.

Half a  mile away across the fields was a saloon on the boundary line. The thirsty  looked at it with wistful eyes, but to  walk there for a drink through the  grass and grain was too much and to  go around by the road by team where  officers were thick as flies was not to  be thought of.  Behind the park fence, close to a little brook shaded by thick alders, was a  dance floor and a little booth where  lemonade and soft 'beer were sold. There  was soon a noisy crowd at this place,  and by noon the town and lockup were %  full of drunks. More officers were *  sworn in, the saloons were searched,  aiid men were sent through the crowds  to look, for socket neddlers. but none  were found. The guaras on the line  road reported all quiet in their direction, and the drunks, when questioned  where they got their booze, refused to  tell.  It was a nine days' wonder, tout at  last it leaked out. Some farmers near  the line were preparing to lay an aqueduct. They had piled up several large  rolls of half inch lead pipe. The conspirators had taken this, and with the  aid of a plumber had laid it in the grain  and grass from the line saloon to the  dance floor and booth near the racecourse. The pipe came out under the  counter ln the booth and served both  as a conductor and speaking tube. The  night before a jigger load of empty  bottles had been smuggled, into the  alders, and Inside of twenty-four hours  a thousand of them had been distributed among the 5,000 people at the  celeibration, filled with liquor, besides  all that was sold by the glass.

Thus the Premier is able to spin along  on his wheel with a heart as light as  the pneumatic tires which support -his  rather bulky frame.,  picycllng is not a new sport for Mr.  Whitney. Down in Cornwall nothing  is thought of seeing him astride a  wheel, and it is no three-wheeled arrangement, either.  He is not the first Premier of Ontario to ride a wheel. One learned to  ride during the twilight hours in'the  corridors of the Parliament Buildings  liter the too-curious civil servants had  leparted. He learned, but was never  jnthusiastic. It may be that ihe was  iot blessed with the buoyant spirits of  ;he Premier of to-day, says The Toronto Star.  Successful Canadian Nurses.

"How fortunate you have discovered  In time what a disagreeable person I  am," flashed Mary. "But let me assure you tbat since our engagement my  diary reads like the history of a South  American republic."  Frequent misunderstandings resulted  ln Mary declining to step into the frail  ,craft of matrimony and selecting instead an ocean liner,, remaining abroad  five years.  At a reception in Mary's honor upon  ber return there was no one she welcomed more graciously than Carlyle.  Hers was disarming cordiality.  "It's good to see you again," Carlyle  repeated between laughs, for Mary's  experiences were breezy.  "And it's good to see you," she echo-  8d.   "A wise woman doesn't lose ber  est friend by marrying bim!"  "Mary," he reproved, "Paris has  made you flippant; also very wonderful and awe Inspiring.," He glanced at  her triumphant toilet.

"It takes more than two quarrels to  break an engagement," said Mary, flip-  ping the pages in her diary. "Our next  one occurred beneath the tree near'the  fourth green." There was something  businesslike in ber manner as she led  the way across the links.  "Like old times," commented Carlyle.  "I haven't arrived at an age to enjoy  living in the past," said Mary crisply.  "The present Is good enough," agreed  Carlyle, as they sat down on a rustic  bench. "I'm glad you are willing to  bury the past."  "I meant nothin* of tbe kind." storm  ed Mary. "We will now take up tne  quarrel tbat marks this spot."  "Why, this ls where I told yon I  loved you!" declared Carlyle. "Let me  see that book." He extended bis band,  but Mary sSook ber head.  "You can't!" she said.  "Little girl, don't you suppose I remember distinctly what happened  here? Instead of reviving old quarrels let's start all over again beneath  this dear old tree." Carlyle's voice was  compelling.  Mary's face was averted as she answered.  "There would be new quarrels. I  make mountains of goir tee-sr  "I'll agree to be compatible to all  your incompatibilities," he smiled. "I  love Mary when she's contrary."  "You think you do, but you don't,"  she quoted. Then, with a scream of  terror, she Jumped on the bench, for  coming toward them was an amiable  looking cow. Mary's terror was not  affected, for she made no distinctions  in bovines.  "Mary," said Carlyle, with a solemn  air, "we are in peril. Here*, that red  book would divert the animal." Before  Mary could protest, her diary was  thrown as a hostage to the enemy.  Carlyle followed her as she fled toward  the clubhouse.  "We might have "Deen killed!" gasped  Mary, sinking into a chair.  Carlyle concealed with difficulty his  elation at the fate of the volume which  kept injuries fresh in Mary's mind.  Then a disquieting thought struck bim.  Suppose Mary's diary were found?  "Mary," he said, "I'll go and find  your book. Some one may read it."  "No, no, no!" cried Mary excitedly.  "You mustn't!"  Unheeding, he moved off.  "Bobby, for my sake don't gol"  There was consternation in her face.  "Why, little girl," be exclaimed joyfully, "there's no danger. The creature has gone by this time."  At this instant a young man In white  flannels came up.  "Pardon me���������but does this book belong to either of you? It's brand new  and had no name ln it���������but I  tbought"-  "Yes, it's mine, thank you," sbe interrupted.  "A���������new���������diary?" queried Carlyle, astonished.  "Yes. I burned the old one four years,  ago"  "Then why did you pretend"��������� began  Carlyle.  "I wanted an excuse to visit our tree  without seeming too sentimental," she  confessed boldly. "You may think  what you like of me."  "I think you are adorable," declared  Carlyle.  "I'm glad I bought that diary," sighed Mary happily. "It will bo so nice  to keep golf scores in. But," as an afterthought, "we'll let the old scores gol"  LEGENDS OF OLD MINES.  The  Value  of  the   Record*  of Paal  Production.  American mining engineers are familiar with speculative schemes, based upon the real or supposed farmer  productiveness of the mines upon  which tbey are started. To say nothing of such enterprises as that of Richard Burton, who thought he had rediscovered in Egypt the sources of Solomon's treasure (itself somewhat mythical), tbere are more recent instances  in abundance. The books of Humboldt and Ward on Mexico gave rise  in the first half of the nineteenth century to an immense and disastrous investment of English capital in the un-  watering of old Mexican gold and silver mines on the strength of reports  from "government archives," showing  their immense production and sundry  legends, accounting for their temporary  abandonment. In the prospectuses of  such schemes, references to pestilence,  war, quarrels among owners, etc., as  the causes of the interruption of an almost incredibly profitable business are  well known feature's.  No doubt all ancient evidence, whether historical or legendary, has its value  for mining enterprises, but it Is well to  bear in mind that Mexican miners did  not usually leave rich ore when they  stopped working a mine, and there is  another proposition, applicable to many  mines outside of Mexico, yet too often  overlooked���������namely, the record of past  production is a measure not of what is  left, but of what is not left, in the ore  deposit of a mine.���������Engineering and  Mining News.

He was sound asleep when we entered his room, but woke as I lit the  gas.  "What's the matter?" he whispered,  lifting his head.  "Congratulate us," I said. "We're  engaged."  "Hev ye conquered her?" he inquired, smiling.  "Love has conquered us both," I said.  "Waal, I swan! Is thet so?" he answered. "Guess I won't fool away  any more time here 'n bed.

"Did very well," said she, smiling,  "for a man with a wooden leg."  Uncle Eb sank into a chair, laughing  heartily and pounding his knee.  It seemed he had told her that I was  coming home with a wooden leg!  "That is the reason I held your arm,"  she said. "I was expect'ng to hear it  squeak every moment ,as we left the  depot. But when I saw that you walked so naturally I knew Uncle Eb had  been trying to fool me."  "Purty good sort uv a lover, ain't  he?" said he after we were doue laughing.

A young girl who is always trying  some new thing was present once  when the doctor set a neighbor's broken arm. She was sure that she knew  exactly how it was done and rather  anxious4o-put-her.naw_know.ledgeJnto,  practice. Some time later a hen out  in the chicken yard broke its leg. The  girl directly announced that she meant  to set it "and make it as good as  new." Accordingly it was put into a  plaster cast and left for the proper  length of time to knit. When the day  came to take off the cast the girl ran  out to the henhouse in great eagernesu  to see tbe result. Presently there was  a scream that brought every member  of the family to her side. The chicken  was jumping miserably over the ground  sidewise instead of directly forward.  You know a hon's leg has a crook.  Well, she had crooked it tho wrong  way, that was all.  One of thf Most Curious Growths et  the "West Indies.  jj The cupey, or, as it is sarcastically  called in the English possessions, "the  attorney," is one of the most curious,  as it is one of the most picturesque,  denizens of the virgin forests of the  West Indian islands. It belongs to the  parasitical family of trees or plants;  but, terrible to relate, it Invariably,  with the basest ingratitude, destroys  all life In the unfortunate tree that  cherishes it In its early growth. The  seeds are borne on the wings of the  wind and deposited on the branches  of other trees, when they burst into  roots, which' are dropped toward the  ground nil around tho "nurse" tree.  In time these roots reach the ground  and strike into the soil.  From this moment the roots grow  stronger and stronger until they resemble a lot of rope ladders thrown over  the tree. Next the parasite sends down  a great cord, which twines around the  trunk of the supporting tree, at first as  though in loving embrace, but li grows  tighter and tighter, eventually strangling its benefactor out of existence.  The nurse tree thus killed rots to decay, and from the immense fibrous  roots of the destroyer now springs a  great trunk, which rises high into the  air.

Thistelton-Dyer, in his "Royalty In  All Ages," describes two dramatic  and tragically contrasted episodes in  the life of Marie Antoinette, the lovely  and ill fated queen of France. Once,  in the days of 'her greatest popularity,  when she went to the opera of "Iphi-  genia," when Achilles came to the line  "Let us sing and' celebrate the queen,"  he turned toward the radiant young  sovereign and sang two additional impromptu lines of charming compliment.  This graceful and unexpected homage  so delighted the audience that "all was  shouting and clapping of hands, and���������  what never happened at the opera before���������the chorus was encored, and  ���������there���������were���������cries���������of���������iLong-~liv.e~the-  queenl' at which expression of feeling  her majesty was so affected that she  shed tears."  On the next occasion, when Marie  Antoinette's sun of popular favor had  set and she. was nearing the tragic  close of her life, one of the actresses in'  "Unforeseen Events" bowed to her as  she sang tbe words "Ab, how I lovo  my mistress!" In a moment all was in  uproar, and the theater was full of  hoarse, angry cries of "No mistress!  No master! Liberty!" and "No master!  No queen!" and it was some minutes  before the tumult quieted down and it  was possible to proceed with tho play.  SOUPS AND BROTHS.  They Are Stimulating, hat Have Little Nutritive Value.

(4  THE   NEWS,   CUMBERLAND, BRITISH   COLUMBIA.  MUCH EXPENSE IN  PROVIDING FOR POOR  Oliver Twists of Bermondsey Must Not  Ask For More���������Treacle Supply  Is Cut Down For Economy.  '"-.*.,       ���������   * .   t     ��������� r   ���������  The president of the Local Government Board has called attention to the  Board of Guardians, of Bermondsey, to  th-a high cost of the poor law schools.  Recently a questtdn was put in Parliament about the high cost ot the schools,  and Mr. Burns has called upon the  guardians to furnish him .with a return showing the cost per child per  week. Mr. Pitta Fenton, the clerk to  the guardians, has now prepared this  return, from which appears that each  pauper child costs the ratepayers  ������1 Is 9d per week, and that a, year ago  the cost was  ������ 1 9s.  'Boys Taught Trades.  These costly poor-law schools are  situated at Shirley, upon an estate of  some seventy acres. So extensive is the  colony that the headmaster recently  asked the guardian to provide him with  a horse and trap so that he could "get  about" the huge pauper demesne, tan  which over thirty scattered5 cottars  are erected, with buildings for workshops, schools, and administration offices. Roads have been made on the  estate, which is now a complete pauper  colony, out of which the children very  rarely go. The childran, of course, ar������  well looked after, but there Is the objection that they are brought up with a  pauper taint by poor-law officials, and  nevor got any Idea of life in the outside world. In each cottage on the colony Is a family of; fourteen or'fifteen  children, and a foster-mother-is in  charge. The return Issued by the guardians' clerk makes It clear that the  actual cost of the, food of each child  la 3s 3d per week. The money expended, of course, goes principally ln officialism. On the estate is a huge  swimming-bath which cost hundreds of  pounds. There are various workshops  In which boys, when they are old  enough, are taught trades, and each lad,  as a matter of fact, has a tiny plot of  land to cultivate, whilst a space around  each cottage Is laid out for flower culture. As the estate is beautifully wooded, this poor-law colony is a perfect  garden city.  Cut Down the Treacle.  Since Mr. Burns has been .in" com-  _municatloaiwith-lthe_guardlans_Jipon������  the question of the great cost of the  aohools, an attempt at economy has  been introduced by reducing the dietary scale by taking away from, each  child 1 ox. of treacle, 11-2 pints of milk,  and J oz. of rice. *,  In connection with the cost of pauper children lt may be Interesting to  mention that in Lambeth, with barrack  achools at Norwood, the cost ia about  15s per child per week. At the Hanwell  schools of tho city and Southwark the  cost per child is 16s or 17s per week.  Opinions differ as to ths best means of  dealing with poor-law children, but  there Is a growing feeling that an excellent plan, and one which is moat  economical, ii that of boarding the children out with families ln the country.  Two Actresses and Twe Pictures.  An Illustration of the vicissitudes ot  those who follow the theatrical profession Is given in an incident which has  occurred at Peterborough, About two  years ago a touring company wae  stranded at Peterborough, and two actresses were left in the plight of having neither money enough to pay their  landlady nor to leave the oity.  They went to a local tradesman, and  asked him te lend them money on a  pawnticket for two plotures which had  been pledged at Nottingham- for ������14.  He lent them ������1, and subsequently advanced them ������3 more, on which they  were to Journey to London. A little  later the tradesman redeemed the pic-  <urei, and wrote to the girls in London  asking if they oared to buy them back.  He received a reply from one of them,  statin j that her frlond had died, and  ���������aylng that he mtffht keep the pictures.  A short time ego ho sent them to be  sold at Christie's, thinking that they  must be of some value for a pawnbroker to advance the sum of ������ 14 on  them. To his surprise they made ������140,  and he At once wrote to tho actress  from whom he had last heard, Informing her of the lucky windfall. But the  actress had died a day or two before  the sale.

BUSINESS GIRLS.  Need Rich, Red Blood to Stand Worry  and Strain of Business Hours.  Business" overtaxes a woman's  strength. Weak, languishing girls  fade under the strain. They risk  health rather than lose employment,  and the loss of health means the loss  of beauty. Thousands of earnest, intelligent young women who eartt- a  livelihood away from home in public  offices and business establishments  are Silent, suffering victims of overtaxed nerves and deficiency , of  strength because their food supply is  not equal to the strain placed upon  them. Fragile, breathless and nervous, they work against time with never a rest when the headaches and  backaches make every hour like a day,  Little wonder their cheeks lose the  tint of health and grow pale and thin.  The'ir eyes are dull, shrunken and  weary; their beauty slowly but surely  fades. Business girls and women  look older than their years because  they need the frequent help of true  blood-making, strengthening medicine  to carry them through the day. Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills are actual food  to the starved nerves and tired bra'lns  of business women. They actually  make the rich red blood that imparts  the bloom of youth and glow of health  to woman's cheeks. They bring  bright eyes- high spirits and make the  day's duties lighter. Twelve months  ago Miss Mary Cadwell, who lives at  49 Maynard St., jHaWfax, N.S., was  run down. The least exertion would  tire her out. Her appetite was poor  and fickle, and frequent headaches  added to her distress. The doctor  treated her for anaemia, but without  apparent results. A relative advised  her to use Dr. Williams' Pink Pills,  and after using but six boxes ajie says  she feels like an altogether different  person. She can now eat Iter meals  with zest, the color has returned to  her .cheeks and she feels better nnd  stronger in every way.  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cure bloodlessness just as food cures hunger.  *hat is how they cured Miss Cadwell  nnd it is just by making rich red blood  that they cure such common ailments  as Indigestion, rheumatism, headaches  and backaches, kidney trouble, neuralgia and special ailments which make  miserable the lives of so many women  and young girls.

(Wallace Irwin in "Success Magazine.)  j An Elderly Philanthropist who was  ! walking home late one night from Ins  ! club passed a prosperous looking apart-  ; ment house and noticed a man in  levelling clothes lying.", motionless    on  ��������� the sidewalk. "First ad to the in-  :j'-.:-ed," linirmered the Philanthropist,  | as    he    shook    the    invalid     gently.  ��������� "What,s  the , matter,   my  dear  sir?"  Xo's'n', jes' takin'    rest,"    said   the  sleeper.    "Whero do you  live?"  pursued tho E. P.        "Thish    'partment  ��������� house, thir' floor front." This was  ratlier a large freight order for the  ol-J gentleman, but being wiling to do  good he put the invalid on his shoulder, bore him laboriously to the third  landing, found his room and tossed  him into a large curtained bed at.the  , front- o,f the apartment.  The Philanthropist immediately  i went down stairs and .out into the  street. And the first thing .he saw on  the sidewalk was, apparently, the  same man he had just carried upstairs. Strange, strange!" muttered  the Philanthropist, leaning over the  man. "Where do'you live, my dear  man?" Thir' floor front," replied  the fellow, almost inaudibly. So the  Philanthropist picked him up, groaned  up to the third floor front and again  dumped his snoring burden into the  mysterious canopied and curtained  bod. And for the third time he went  out into the street, and for the third  time found what appeared to be the  same man in the same place, lying in  the same attitude. "Where do you  live?" he asked, trembling with excitement. "Thir' floor front said the  irian very faintly. "I must be going  insane!1' groaned the E. P., as he  rang for the janitor. "Janitor, for  heaven sake tell me, how many young  men are living in your third floor  front?" he gasped.   .  "Wan, and he do be the divvil's  own," said the janitor. "Is he triplets?" was the next question. "He  is not." "Well, how does it come  then, that I have carried this fellow  upstairs to his room twice, put him  into that curtained: bed,������������������; at the front  ���������yet each time find him here on the  sidewalk before I have time to get  down stairs?"  ���������:.,. "Where did ye say you put him in  his room?"  "Why, I put him in that large curtained bed to the front."  "Well, yez. poor old ijut!" said the  janitor, pityingly, "thot ain't no bed,  ���������th_oAis_a_YivindQw!"
