No.   6.  WALTER SCOTT.  ���������*���������*��������������������������������������������������������������� ���������������������������������������������<*������������������ ������������������������������������ WWW  r^  WALTER SCOTT, M.  P.  President of the Leader-Times   Publishing Company.  Of all the newspaper.'irion of the  - Canadian West, perhaps none is personally more popular, or has. proved  '" professionally : more successful than*  Walter Scott, M.P. for-West Assini-  boia, and president of the company  owning the Regina Leader and the  Moosejaw, Times. This is in no sense  reriiurkable when tho characteristics  ' of the man are known, ior they are  characteristics that necessarily compel success and inevitably attract  friends. Quiet efficiency,. disciplined  enthusiasm, tiivlcss industry, calm  judgment, broad outlook, abounding  charity���������these    are   jthe   outsta-nding_  qualities   impressing   every .6ne"who  meets Mr.  Scott.    He has firm opin-  - ions, opinions reached after mature  thought, and which he advocates and  defends'reasonably and seasonably.  Hut among those holding contrary  views he has hosts . of friends, and  none ever heard him attack any  man on personal grounds. It is*  doubtful if any one has ever heard  Mr. Scott at any time say a word in  dispraise or depreciation of any man  whatsoever. Envy, hatred, calumny,  malice, uncharitubleness���������these aro.  all utterly foreign to his nature and  disposition. If he cannot'praise, he"'  never blames. ...While Mr. Scott,fearlessly criticizes what ho considers  wrong policies or courses of conduct,,  and in no sense, can bo considered a  mere ucquiescer, he appears to have  tho unusual faculty of looking at  I things from a detached, ���������impersonal  point o'f view, and of hot including  the person holding views from which  ho differs in the condemnation .ha ���������  gives to tho opinions they hold.  Both in his journalistic and political  debates, ho attacks and defends  principles, rather than men. His  method of public conviction is based  on no appeal to any consideration of  'cither person or sentiment but rests  his case wholly on grounds of logic  and reason. Ho compiles, arranges,  relates', aud presents facts and evidence impossible to dispute, points  to tho conclusions theso facts havo  compelled ho himself to much, und  lends his renders or bin auditors, by  tho same process of reasoning, to nr-  ������������������ rivo at similar conclusions. Mut as a  writer und as a speaker, "Mr, Scutt  indulges In no "frills."

After five months of this, ho  joined the: staff of the 'Manitoba  Liberal as "devil."-In a-,f������\v-months  ho received promotion to'"the case."  and in, December, 18S6, accompanied  0.. J.' Atkinson, the then proprietor  of * tlje paper,' .'to, Kegina, where t he  Journal .'was'"' ' founded. ��������� For six  years-'he w^s.. working printer and  writer,'with*s,,The Standard and the  Leader, with* a winter's interval at  Winnipeg job olhccs to .gain further  Experience.  '.   lu 1890 Mr. Scott, returned as me-  ftinnical foreman   to ���������' the    Journal,  which the   following    year   was   acquired' by a local company under tho  presidency   of   the    present     Judge  Scott o'f, Edmonton.   Two yeifrs later,  In'-partnership   with   J. K, Mclnnis,  lio   bought    the    Regina -Standard,  ind,  two years later still,  disposed  ot his interest to Mr. McTnnis,   ifnd  bought   the   Moosejaw   Times.     lie  :onducted the paper personally for a  rear, and in 1895 purchased the Retina Leader''from W. F. Davin.   M.  P., and again returned to tho Territorial   Capital. .   Shortly afterwards  tho. Leader-Times  Company  was  organized,   with   Mr.   Scott   as president, and both papers entered on an  enlarged sphere  of usefulness.  The Leader, of which Mr. ���������Scott,  prlof to the engrossing attentio'h necessitated by public affairs, was  more'.closely in control, has an .enviable reputation among western  newspapers. In the Territories its  position corresponds somewhat with  that occupied by the Toronto Globe  in Eastern Cana.da. It is able, pro--  . gressive, ?ound and .sane. It gives  the news when ���������? it is'5 news,vend on  matters of Territorial interest has  had the enterprise to institute and  conduct personal investigation. The  campaign of information it has within recent, years ��������� carried,on in connection with railway, blockades, and  general inefficiency ! and inadequacy  of transportation - facilities,, throughout the. region in which it circulates  is one ; that has "attracted attention  throughout the length iind' breadth'  of the Dominion, and that has earned  for itself the enthusiastic support of  the farmers whose grievances it exposed,' Its editorial ' opinions are  weighty and well considered, always  regard public questions from the  Western point of view, and are free  from partisan rancor or hysteria,  "wlii le"ty pogr a ph i cal Ixrthe���������Lea der-���������is  one of the handsomest papers in the  West.  Mr. Scott's reputation has been  founded on his journalistic and parliamentary career, and hence it. is  not generally known that'he is" one  of the best amateur ball players in  the West. He was a playing member  of Regina's first nine for eight  years, i and can play any position.  For several seasons he was pitchei*,  and for two was behind the bat. In  1895, the year of the Territorial Exhibition., when he -was (liying at  Moose Jaw, he played second base  with 'tho. local nine t}iat won the  championship'* of tho Territories  against several clubs with Imported  batteries. Mr. ?>co|t has,, also won j  several curling HrOphies., jjjlo;' is hot i  a "jincr," and heia: but ./few jassocia- ���������  tions in fraternal societies, but is a.  member of Cnmp Balmoral,.

Mr. Scott is one of the West's rising young men, both as - a citizen,  a journalist, at politician. His tact,  his courage, his industry mark him  for future honors, and Western newspaper men may felicitate themselves  that among, their number, is one  with such promise of a career so distinguished.  HARMLESS   DENTISTRY   UNDER  BLUE LIGHT.  j After threo years of patient research, two professors of Geneva,  Switzerland, have discovered a nuw,  ana-esthetic, which promises to revolutionize the practice of dentistry.  In reporting this to tho State Department, United States Consul Lie-  field, at Frieberg, Germany, states  that, finding that the nervous system was influenced by colored lights,  the professors soon perceived, after  experimenting with each hhe, that  blue had an extraordinary effect on  the nerves. The cunsul says tnot a  tooth may be painlessly extracted  .with none of the after effects on the  .system, by shutting the patient iii a  dark rporn and exposing his eyes to  a blue light of 16-eandlo power 'for  three minutes, causing' him to lose  all sense of pain, although at the  same time retaining his senses.

P. R, ���������  ��������� At the assizes in Toronto a few  days ago the jury awarded R. Blain,  of Brampton, $4,000 against the* Canadian Pacific Railway. Blain was  twice attacked and beaten by a fellow, passenger while travelling on a  'C. P. Retrain between Brampton  and Toronto.     He appealed   to   the  ��������� conductor for assistance, but that official declined to aid him. At a pre-  !vi oiis' trial''Blain*'secured an indictment for' $1,000, ,but the cotir# of  appeal cut this down and granted  him the option of a new trial, which  resulted ��������� in   increasing ' tho    verdict  , against the. company.  ���������MUSn^BE-.jaiEE^aE^JlEliT...

Deafness Cannot Be Cured  vfoy local applications as they cannot reach the  diseased portion of the ear. There la only one  way to cure deafness, and that is by! constltu-'  tioiial remedies. Deafness is caused by an Inflamed condition of the mucous lining of the  Eustachian Tube. When this tube Is inflamed  you have a rumbling, sound or imperfect hearing;; and *when it is entirely closed, Deafnees Is  the result, and unless the Inflammation can be'  taken out and this tube restored to its normal  condition, hearing will be destroyed forever;  nine case* out of ten are caused by Catarrh,  which is nothing but an inflamed condition of  the mucous surfaces.

"Happy, I have a dreadful confession  to make. My name Isn't really Don.  That is only the final syllable of the  name. When we are married I'll have  to write my name on the records Nebu-  zaradon Nye."  Happy was silent.  "Does it seem so very dreadful to  you, Happy? I a:: sorry, but I cannot  help It. And you don't know bow I  have suffered all my life with that  abominable name."  "Yes, I do. dear Don," cried Happy,  laughing hysterically, "and the fates  have surely brought us together, for  my name is Kerenhappuch!"

The strength required of an average  sized team of horses and the strain on  the horses to draw a heavy load over  stones or out of a deep rut, hole or  over many other avoidable ��������� obstacles  are often greater than to draw tbe same  load over n smooth surface fifty yards.  It would be a small estimate to say  a careless driver stratus his team ln  that manner twenty times a day.

A SNOW EXPERIMENT.  ��������� j  Frozen   Vapor   From   the   Action   ot  Sulphide of Carbon.  Two solid bodies, cne yellow, sulphur, the other black, carbon, unite  under certain circumstances to form a  colorless liquid called sulphide of carbon, which must be bandied with much  precaution on account of its great explosive property. The soluble property  of sulphide of carbon renders it valuable, to take spots off garments. If  its odor is moro disagreeable than that  of benzine or turpentine, it has at least  the advantage of being dispelled quickly in consequence of the prompt evaporation of the liquid. There is nothing  equal to it to take off spots of paint on  clothes. It does not do, it, however,  without creating great fear in persons  who use it for the first time, for they  see on tho very placo where, to their  great pleasure, the paint had disappeared a large white spot, the nature of  which is hard for them to* define, and  the more they brush the more unsightly  nnd tbe larger that white spot grows.

Should Be tbe Aim of Ci-rlllcatlon, Aeemt4>  Ins to Henry Labouohore, Kdltor  of London Ti uth.  I prefer teaching qur children that  war is ono of the tirect curses that  aitiict this earth, and that, while all  .should be prepared, if needs be, to  defend our independence, our persist-  out aim should be lo avoid all wars,  and, as was well suid by Lord Percy,  '���������nations should consider not how  littlo thoy can concede to ono another, but how far they can meet each  other's views."  This is the spirit that now animates the workingmen oi Frunco, of  Germany and of Italy. Their leaders  are ever deprecating any recrudescence of the military spirit that has  conduced so often to war in the past.  It is tho spirit that animates our  own workingmen.  If we were attacked they would  need no military tomfooleries in national schools to induce them to  fight fpr their country. But thoy  know that peace is tho best of policies for them, as never has there  been a war whicli has not been harmful to thoso engaged in industry.  Napoleon infused a military spirit  into Frenchmen. What did the Workingmen of France gain by his conquests? What do our workers gain  by our annexations of Uganda, of  tho Soudan and of the Empire of So-  koto? What have they pained by  our war in So;ith Africu, except having to pay more for some of their  necessaries.  A tribe of savages is always culti-  'voting a military spirit. Its sole occupation is war, and,the arts of  peace are despised as contemptible to  men of spirit. Among civilized mon  there ought to bo a higher ideal, and  there would be were it not that there  are usually too many missionaries of  strife among them over appealing to  th'i baser passions and trying to per--  suade their fellow countrymen that  then* is something noble and elevating in war nnd that a soldier is tho  noblest of human beings.  Arpiies are necessary evils, but for  my part I prefer a procession of  trades unioni-sts to the marching by  of armed regiments and tho simple  and homely garb of a worker to tho  tawdry trappings of men of war. I  respect a man who honorably fulfills  his calling as a soldier, but he is no  better in my eyea than tho man who  honestly labors in other and more  peaceful     vocations!  ���������Purity as a Cure.

Cleanliness is but another namo for purity. Both consist  in the absence of foreign ingredients,  in frocdom from things that do not  belong. Dirt is only matter out of  its proper place, and evjl is only ao-  tion out of its proper place.  If a man had all physical,  mental and moral dirt removed  ho would bo in harmony with  puro living. It is writton that tho  puro in heart shall see God. Thero is  nothing in tho way to impede tho  vision.  A Chicago physician, Dr. Homer M.  Thomas, recently uttered tho same  truth as it relates to tho subject of  physical health. Ho said:  "No medicine in a bottlo over cured tuberculosis. Tho four basic  principles upon which rests salvation  from tuberculosis aro puro air, puro  water, pure food, puro thoughts."  lt is a hopeful sign that ho recognized "puro thoughts" as among tho  necessary elements.

They  were, however, taken up by the Eng^  lish and cultivated into a semiexhibi-  tion fowl.  Faverolles are bred In several varieties of colors, one kuown as the salmon, another as the ermine. Besides  these are the black nnd the Brahma  colored varieties. All are the product  of several crosses in which are used  the Houdans. Dorkings. Cochins, Brah-  mas and likely Crevccoeur breeds, the  several types aud variety colors.  Edwin C. Powell, who last year  raised a flock of Faverolles and also  some half bloods, tells In the Feather  some of their good qualities:  "I am keeping Faverolles alongside  of fenrred Plymouth Rocks and SUves  FAVKROLLE COCK.  Wyandottes. and they are able to hold  their own on merit. So far they are  proving fully as good layers. The eggs  nre larger than the Wyandottes', uniform and of the best shape and of a  light brown color. Tbe greatest point  In their favor over breeds of the American class is their superior table qualities. They are longer in body, heavier  breasted, and the meat is of much finer  -flavor ._r_iyqllng _t_he_iga_me_Jh_tbls^rtf-  spect The half bloods that I have  raised show the Faverolle characteristics very strongly, and the high quality  of their carcasses is pronounced. This  leads mo to believe that the Faverolles  will prove valuable in breeding up tbe  meat qualities of most flocks        *  "Lastly, tbe Faverolle matures early  and is always ready for market Both  the pure bloods and half bloods bave  reached broiling age, the roaster stage  and maturity ahead of Rocks and Wyandottes with samo.jfood and enre. Tills  will make the mhlos particularly valuable to caponlze, for the lato birds can  be enponized and brought to tbelr  prime ono to three months ahead of  other, breeds and'marketed In January  and February nnd their quarters given  over to breeding stock."  Tlio Vonnu Brood.  If the brood hns bowol trouble glvo  a littlo boiled rlco or milk curds; if  constipated, n llttlo buttermilk or oatmeal will probably remedy mattors,,  snys Mrs. Strlbllng ln Farm and Ranch,  A droopy chick will often bo as bright  as "ever if given a drop of enstor oil  and kept in a warm plnco for a day.  Our chicks have tho run of the alfalfu,  so got plenty of bugs and groon stuff,  but chopped lettuce uud onion tops are  nhvnys good, Wo food corn bread loft  from dlnnor, but novor raw cornmoal.

Tlie llffn of Health.  Tho comba of tbo fowl aro tho sign  over tbo door for either good or bad  health, says Meorsch In Western Poultry Journal. When tn good health bis  appendage is blood red ot a bright and  tender color; when bad in health tt Is  dark and of a bluish cast. There Is  something wrong, and an examination  of tho fowl itself will ofton disclose tbo  disease. First look in tbo mouth to  see If tbere are any canker sores or  signs of roup. A yellowish tinge in a  bod colored comb indicates liver com-  plnlnt. Often n ehnnge of f���������*d I. nit  thnt. ho noodn.

Chicks should not be fed until thoy  are at least thirty-six hours old. It ta  n serious mlstako to feed tbem earlier.  Too early feeding is the cause of Indigestion and bowel troublo In many  esses.

With this idea. In my  mind 1 <iare:l not po anywhere, and a  Budden fortunate descent of great heat  upon the city gave me an excuse for  restricting my movements. '  "You're looking a little under the  weather," said my father on the even-  Ins o? the second day. '"Why" Uon'l  you go out of town for a few days?"  I protested that I did not wish tc  leave him alone, bnt lie would not heat  of ray remaining upon bis account.  He wes a 'perfect salamander: not even  his collars ever suffered from the effects cf the heat* aud .he must stay ir  town for certain 'matters of business.'  ."Run"*"across., to St. Jo." said he.  "You used to like..that rj.'^ioc."  It bad been .upon, my. mind to gc  there, and as he approved I took passage across the lake next morning. I  had friends in St. Jo, but was in nr  mood to see them. Solitude was my  desire. As was tho case with Hamlet,  man delighted not me, and woman fa*  less. Every girl that looked at me j  was Sibyl in disguise, and in this proc-!  ess of interminably mistaking stran-  gers I lost the last vestige of my memory of her.  This result was assisted by something which I had thought would work  the other way. Between the leaves of  a book in the library at home I had  found a faded proof of a photograph  which must be Sibyl's. The pose was  ���������unusual, for it permitted little cf the  face to be seen, only the curve of th"e  cheek and a faint suggestion of a nose,  There wore a hat and "a mass of halt  .which might have been red, black Ci  yellow"for all that the print'revealed,  ���������but the lady's car was quite distinct  _and���������T.ery���������pretty.^I���������had^a.^8uspiCioD.  that the camera might have been  pointed at It particularly. ;,  The photograph was quite recent, as  I "Judged by the appearance of the  pafrer, but it bad been exposed to  strong light. I had preserved it carefully for use in case of doubt   It  teemed to me that I should surely  recognize that ear, and yet I suspected  three ears on the steamer and a dozen  on the streets of St. Jo within two  hours after landing. ' x  , I had decided to stay a day or two  lo a quiet boarding house whero I had  lived for a weel: half a dozen years before. It was on an unpretentious street  which seemed to have changed less  than most other parts of the city. Ono  >f the suspected oars preceded mealong  this street nml, to my surprls^'niid I  might almost Bay alarm, entered that  very houso whoro I designed to stop.  As for Vas owner of tho ear, I had a  better view of her after dinner whoa  she sat on the veranda with somo other young people who lived In the house.  I learned that she wus n Miss Jones, a  recent arrival mid somewhat of a mystery���������a fascinating mystery, for she  was surely one of the prettiest girls  that ever walked this earth.  Tho llrst 'clear view of her sot all  my suspicions nt rest. Hlbyl would bo  no beauty, grant l;:g hor tlie best that  time cirn do for a growing girl. The  resemblance between thorn must certainly bo limited to the ears, and there,  , If I might judge froiji tlio photographic  print, It rmxUy was surprising.

This house used  to be quiet. Apparently It had lost that  maijlt.' 1 couldn't go to my room because its windows were directly over  the heads of the merry, merry chorus.  I might shift my quarters to a hotel,  but I disliked to register under an assumed name, and to put my own on  the book would be to invite some of  my acquaintances In St. Jo to send up  their cards. A boarding house was  my only refuge, but 1 seemed to have  chosen the wrong one. There was too  much Idle merriment here. I could  never forget-Anna-Lamoine'. in such a  place. What I wanted was a chance to  sit down and think about it in perfect'  p.eace. Lac-king that possibility at the  moment, it seemed'host to take a walk.  .

His name was  Brooks, and he bad been in my father's  employ for a dozen years. We had  been quite friendly, he and I, In'former  da3rs, but I wa.*! in no mood to meet  him then.  "Terry!" he called'lifter me. "Marshall Terry, is that you?"  "It's all that's left of me," said I.  wheeling about. "How are you,  Johnny?"  "All that's left of you!" he exclaimed, making a pretense of looking  up at me as if I had been a monument.   "When was there more?"  "Before I struck New York," said I,  though that couldn't mean much to  him.   "What are you doing over here?"  "Came oyer to see a fellow," said he  and added something which gave the  impression that ho was hurt because* I  had not looked bim up in Chicago.   "Einjiot feeling in good spirits." said  man rnignt -sit ana smoke ana rorget  any girl that ever existed.  "that's where I live," said I .to the  horse earnestly and confidentially;  "under that tree. My mea's aro  brought out to me by a gagged slave,  and any boarder who calls upon me  gets shot."  The farmhouse Itself might have attracted me in ordinary conditions. It  was a series of low houses /that had  grown with the demand. They were  connected, but each seemed to have' its  separate entrance, with a spacious portico, vine clad and cool. But the best  of It was that not a human creature  was iu sight.

I fancied the people to be wandering in  the grove beyond the house or in the  trees that, bordered the lake, each man  or woman solitary, absorbed in gentlo  reflection.

Immediately  tbe quiet boy appeared from nowhere  in particular and led my horse under  the shade of an apple tree that stood  beside the fence which marked off tho  orchard from tho Held. I observed that  the path leading down to tho lake was  beyond the fence. Tho orchard showed uo sign that any ono passed through,  Thero was a faint path leading to tho  lodge, but It seemed not to go beyond.  "That's a very nice boy," said I,  "Who Is ho?" '  "Jim Lamoine," replied* the'young  woman.  I half rose from my seat.  "Lamoine?" I echoed.  "Yes." saw sbo. "He's an orphan.  He and his sister aro almost all that's  left of the family."  "Ills sister?"  ���������'Anna." said my companion in thnt  enlm, emotionless voice whicli suited  so well with tho rural culm of tlio  scene.  "lt Isn't possiblo," I said, "that he li  Anna Luniolne's brother."  "Why not?" asked the girl gently.  "I bug your pardon," enld I. "It happens that I have mot Miss Lamoluo.

"The hotiso  j Is In two parts; used to bo only ono,  ' bnt Mr. Wltherspoon built the lulf  nearest to us last year.-  "What a pity!" I exclaimed.  "Oh, it's just as private," she said.  "There's a partition of logs and no  door. You might fire a cannon in one  half and not wake a person in the other. I don't believe Miss Jones and  Miss Scott ever meet. I carry their _  meals out separate."  She sat back In her seat and demurely folded her hands, which were incased ip men's gloves, much soiled. I  judged that she had been performing  some task appertaining to the kitchen  range.  "I want the whole of that little  house," said I.  "Don't knovy; how you're going to get  it," she replied. "But you can speak  to Mrs. Wltherspoon. Here she comes."  A large, motherly looking woman,  with a pleasant face and a great abundance of gray hair neatly arranged,  came around the corner of the house.  She was carrying a large pan of pens.  As 1 rose to speak to Mrs. Witherspoon  the niece slipped -away into the house.  It flashed across mo that she might  have been too long away from her  work and that the landlady's disposition might not be so mild as her countenance would indicate.  I lost no time in stating my business  to her. She shook her head slowly and  st.'rred the peas in the pan with a meditative air. "','������������������ v  "There seems to be a great demand  for, our apple tree bouse this year,"  said she. "Miss Scott takes to it,  though you'd think an old maid would  -be scared out there in the orchard at  night. But it appears that she's afraid  of fires and don't like to live up staira  in a house. I might bo able to arrange  matters witb her, but I couldn't budge  Miss Jones. And that settles it, of  course, so far as you or the other  gentleman is concerned."  "The other gentleman?"  "Yes." said she. "We have a Mr.  Derringer from New York, who wants  to live in the orchard."  "Mr. Derringer!" I exclaimed. "Well,  upon; my word!"

I've "met Mr. Derringer ia New York,'  and as for MIs3 Jones���������by tbe way, is  she a rather tall girl with very beautiful blond hair?"  "Really, I hardly noticed," said Mrs.  Witherspoon.

When he had driven  away, I sat down by a window and ep-,  Joyed the view. The place savored o\t  romance. It was delightfully unreal,  ond I was beginning to fancy myself  floating on the lake In the moonlight  with Anna Lamoine when the baser  craving of hunger shattered the dream.  The vision had endured for a few  eeconds only, for I >vas in a state to  gnaw the bark of the apple tree that  shaded my eastern window. Indeed I  had some thought of Its fruit, scarcely  out of the bud, and glanced in that dl-  rectionfor an instant. Turning again  to look out toward the lake, I stared  straight into the face of Jimmy Lamoine, whose head Just reached above  the window sill.  Jimmy enjoyed )ny surprise. lie had  a way of grinning with his eyes, the  lower part of bis face remaining as  expressionless as a slice of beefsteak.  "I told Mrs.. Wltherspoon I'd show  you the dining room," said he.  "You don't mean to tell me that there  Is anything to eat at tbls hour!" I exclaimed.  "You can always get something to  eat here," he said. "There ain't any  hours,"  In previous experiences with rustic  living I bad been burdened by the rigidity of mealtime regulations, and I  had had no thought that Mrs. Witherspoon would 6erve lunch as late as half  past 2.  "You are taking a starving sailor off  a raft," said I to Jimmy, and I gave  him half a dollar, which he received  with the solemnity of a rite.  He laid the coin in the palm of bis  band, closed his Angers upon it and  opened them again. My money hail  vanished. Having performed this mystery, Jimmy gravely led the way toward the dining room, seeming to know  by some sort of intuition that I should  make my exit by the window instead  of taking the longer route.  Mrs. Witherspoon's dining room was  ln sections, like'the house, and each  section had its exits and its entrances.  I was aware, in the course of my meal,  that several persons were lunching In  my neighborhood, but I'saw none of  them. I sat at a little table by the  window and was well served by a neat  maid. The billof fare was ample, and  everything was'cooked to admiration.  deal to herself; never comes to the  bouse, but goes down to tbe lake with  her painting things and sits there all  day."  ; "This is very Interesting," said I.  "Can you give me a room in the house?  Here is my card. I am the son of  Sumner Terry of Chicago."  "Certain," said Mrs. Wltherspoon.  "You can stay with us."  She rose as if to show me the way  and looked about for a placo to set  down the pan of peas. At that moment Jimmy Lamoine appeared as if  through the ground and without a  word took the pun from the old lady's  hand and carried it Into the house.  "Is that boy dumb?" I demanded.  "No," sho. replied, "but he's n cur'ous  child, cur'ous. He's a kind of a mystery, I call him."  "Ills sister Is far from an ordinary  girl," said I, "and something of a mystery herself."  "That's right," said Mrs. Wltherspoon. "She is."  CHAPTER V.    ON TJIK LAKE.  (VyJlRS. WITHERSPOON offered  j IVa me a room ou tho ground floor  teffUSB] of tho houso lu tho ond near-  ySS^sl est the highway, the latest of  the parts which had arisen in tho  growth of that remarkable structure.  It was In every way Inviting, being  largo and cool and furnished with a  Simple elegance quite beyond my expectations. Thero was a mnhogony  bedstead of tho old style, yet not ugly,  and tho most cursory investigation revealed moderu springs of tlio best pattern, Tho chairs, the writing tablo nnd  tho sofa were all equally fraudulent;  they all concealed the comforts of today behind a thin mask of tho antique.  It was pleasant that theso things  should seem to bo tho solid, cheerless  lumber of our grandfathers and should  io readily betray themselves for prod*  ucts of a tlmo less rude. Indeed It was  tho chief charm of Mrs. Witherspoon's  hospitality that It was notwbat It soero-  ed. Tho placo pretended to bo a farm*  houso and was nothing of tho tort.  Tow peoplo in theso days like a farm*  bouso. Wo havo outgrown tho sincerity of a llfo so near tbo soil. It would  not be woll to go out of raodorn bust*  n������������������������ or modern snelfltr into any form  of sincerity. Such a pretense sis Mrs.  Wltherspoon provides Is very nice, but  tbo reality If like the feed "tub" In tht  morning, a thing tbat some men talk  about and nover take.

Tlto quarters  pieased me. and! made a prompt bargain for tbem at a price tbat wonld  ertw have given m* a spasm of the  pocket  I bad come without any baggage at  all, and It was necessary to return at  once to St. Jo.   In t*** city I .exoort-  ~~XfteiTluncfieon,'Eelng~entfrely upon  my own resources ln the matter of  amusement I wandered down to the  lake. The path led alongside the orchard, but the view In its direction  wus obstructed by bushes that overran  tho fence. There was no ouo to prevent my walking across the orchard.  No signboard interdicted It, but there  was a law in thc air, and this was a.  peculiarity of the place.  At the foot of tbo path I found a  small boat drawn up on the shore, and  I felt privileged to take. It. I "pushed  the craft off and sat in tho stern, using  one oar as a paddle, Indian fashion.  The lako was very pretty and blessed  by a cool breeze. I paddled out a  little way and lighted a cigar.  To tbo left tho hill came down, verging upon tho water in a singular wall  of rocks that would havo suemed tho  work of man but for the vast labor it  would bavo cost. Glancing along this  wall and so on to tho bare (leld that  fringed the orchard, I perceived n girl  In a pule green dross at work' beforo an  easel. She was shaded by a large umbrella, such as artists use, planted ia  the ground nnd sot at so nleo an angle  that It accurately beheaded her imago  In my eyos.  | Tbe dlstaaco was not bo great but  that I might havo recognized a person  very well Xnown to mo, and I stared;  at hor, expecting ovory raomont that  she would stoop and reveal hor faco.  Whom i.iould I seo? Pretty Miss Jones  from St. Jo or���������some one olso? I was  conscious of a most uii usual thrill of  anxiety.  I I could see her right hand plainly; at  least, thoro was nothing but distance  to prevent. It seemed a pretty hand,  and It wielded the brush with engaging  ' grace. Yet In my present calm framo  of mind I tun willing to admit that ono  human hnnd looks much like another  at 1100 yards. Hut this consideration  did not come to mo at tho tlmo. Such  things nre for tlio busts they mako up  the joy of youth.

The case of Mrs. Husband is not  unlike scores and hundreds which are  repeated to us. There can be no  better evidence as to the thoroughness and effectiveness of Dr. Chase's  Kidney-Liver Pills.  Mrs. E. Husband, Moore street,  St.' Catharines, Ont., states: . "I  was seriously afflicted with indigestion and stomach trouble for sixteen years.1 Finally I became so  bad that I could scarcely eat anything without eating terrible distress.'   Gradually I grew weaker and  more emaciated, and though treated  by three doctors and a specialist I-  received-no benefit;  "After a tinje a pain began in my  right side, which .medical men said  was liver trouble. I never got relief  until I began the use of Dr. Chase's  Kidney-Liver Pills, and thoy helped  me at once. By using about a dozen  boxes I was entirely cured. I owe  my cure ontirely to this treatment,  and make this statement with the  hope that some poor sufferer may  benefit by my experience.

It is interesting to read the coiriincnU*} on  the result of the elections, as they  appear in several of these journals.  The future of Portland is now assured���������of course at the expense of  i     Canadian tax-payers.     A special  despatch from Portland to the Boston American" says:���������-"Ewybut**!  D ss man ir. P< r land feels 1 k.e celebrating, for the entire community  looks forward to a boom that will  rival any western   mining  ciimp  boom in its palmiest days.    Pre  dictions are made that the population of Portland will be doubled in  a few years from the time thc Grand  Trunk railway, from Winnipeg to  the Pacific Coast is completed. The  building of the extension of  the  road wub assured by the result of  tho Canadian elections when tbe  Liberals won ovor the Connerva  tlvoB,"    After thin our American  cousins can no longer complain of  unfriendliness on the part of Canadians.   The very (aot that refusal  to prosecute offender! under the  alien laws was one instance of our  cousinly love, and now wo go further to prove our undying devotion  for the   "lend of tho froe"   by  throwing #150,000.000 awny on a  railway to benefit Portland.   Up to  a few days prior to ihe election,  thero wero the most confident anticipations of  Conservative victory  by large majorities.

Remember the Great Fide Day at  Napier & Partridges.  mBm-aammmmmmmmmmmm  Masquerade Ball.  The ball given bv the Cunobe-  Und Athletic Association on Tuesday evening last, like similar  Itluctiona in the put, waa my suc  cessful. The dancers who were  fancifully attired were numerous.  The fancy costumes worn included  many that were as novel as they  were pretty, and there was also a  goodly variety ��������� Spanish dancing  girls, flower girls, peasant maidens,  dainty Japanese girls, sailor lads,  clowns, and dozens of other costumes,-each of which added to  brighten the effect of the pretty  scene. Dancing was continued until well into the ruorning. A large  number of dances being on the pro  gramme, including . extras, Mrs  Bacon and Mrs Baird acted as  judges and awarded the prize** to  the successful competitors, a_Ii_t__of  which appears belc^w. Mr T. Hudson ably performed the duties of  floor manager. The committees  having cfiarge of the arrangement's  deserve every praise for their consideration of innumerable details  connected with the ball. A substantial sum will be handed to the  athletic c. rairiittee who will have  charge of the purchases required to  fit the hall with the latest requisites.  Best Dressed Lady���������Mrs 0. H.
