The Concert in aid of the Sanitarium held   in   the   Cumberland
Hall last Thursday  evening   was
attended hy a large and, appreciative audience, though  ihere   were
still, left a few empty seits   which,
considering the worthy i object   of
tho  entertainment,   should   have
been filled.   However it: ^nust   be
refhembered that at this.Season, so
many attractions are putgout   that
people cannot wellaffonjp; to  contribute to everything, so'that   the
profits will be eminently ��� satisfact-
.ry,   The first number op the programme, a musical "The Seasons"
was sung by Misses L   Bjckle,   R.
Bickle, M. Meilado, A'; lieese,  N.
Winuingham, L. Parks,fN. Stewart
and M   McNeil.   The fgiris   were
beautifully costumed ��6   represent
the four seasons, two for each season.   A very pretty scene.   Masters
J. McNe 1 and \V   Thompon   then
entertained with a Chinese sketch,
sung in   character.   Though   nervous, the boys were   greeted   with
much applause, their get   up  and
acting were excel lent.   Little Jean
Mi.ler ihen sang   'Allan  Watex",
and it is no stretch of imagination
to say that the audience were cap
tured by her sweet  voice  and   ac
curate and  fueling   interpretation
of the lovely   old   song., Singing
a   child.   Thomson,  and.. McNeil
then gave "'Jennie   Jones",   after
which the operetta ,,"Little  Snow-

The chaiacteru, a list   of  which
appeared in our last issue, sustained their    parts   most   creditably
through thit* very pietty. and rather
difficult little  play.   The   Misses
Dowdall, in   leading   parts,  were
very good indeed, and  little  fault
could be found with tbe whole performance,   A pietty scene was the
very graoeful dance of  the  majds

CURED OF ITCHING PILES  OF 27 YEARS STANDING  Suffered Keenly and Unable to Work fop  Days at a Time���������Cured Three  Years Ago by  Dr. Chase's Ointment.  Carpenters   Lose  Their   Axe������  to   Get  the Modern Tool.  With the introduction of the pail into  his craft the Chinese carpenter was iu  need of a hammer.. His ax is provided  with a sort of hammer face, so he  came to use that. Though a good ax,  the tool is a bad hammer. However, a  large proportion of the hammers first  introduced from the west by importers  were poor imitatious of what a hammer should be, and the Chinaman  rightly judged it no better than his  own, so generally repudiated it. Here  was another evidence of so called obduracy. At u venture I secured a small  consignment of thoroughly good claw  hammers for trial with my own men.  Shortly thereafter a man chanced to  lose his ax-hammer at a juncture  where it was very badly needed in the  latter function. I presented him with  one of the new lot. He "hefted" it aud  swung it with a grin pf dawning satis  faction. Wheu I made the next round  he was wielding the new acquisition  ���������with energy.  In the course of a few days there occurred again the loss of a native tool,  which resulted in the presentation of  another of my hammers. At the third  occurrence of tho phenomenon my suspicious were slightly aroused. Upon  the fourth I decided it was time to  begiu an investigation. These hammers  seemed the source of a rare satisfaction.  It was arranged to begin prematurely a phase of the job in hand which  required a great deal of ax work. After giving directions, I retired to \?jatch  developments. There was a rather ostentatious struggle to meet the demand of the work with a short supply  of axes. Then the boss carpenter made  a plea, for a new supply, which was refused. Moreover, he was told that as  some of the men seemed to. be loafing  it might be just as well to reduce the  force. Alarmed at this possibility of a  reduction in his own "squeeze," he  took another course. One by one, when  my back was turned, the lost axes  were unearthed. Judicious intervals  were interposed between the respective  recoveries, but that was merely "face  pidgin." They kuew that I was in no  way deceived, but so long as I had no  actual proof their "faces were saved."  They were all immensely pleased when  Ih^^wWeTpermitted-to-keep-the-new-  hammers. The remainder of the force  was likewise equipped, and' thereafter  the work progressed smoothly arid sat-  Tsfactorlly.���������Bngineering Magazine,  THE SUNLIGHT  WAY  RUB ON SUNLIGHT SOAP  LEAVE 30 TO60 MINUTES  *   RINSE   WELL  Sunlight Soap ts better than  other soaps.1 but is best when  used in the Sunlight way (follow  directions).  Hard rubbing and boiling are  things of the past in homes  where Sunlight Soap is used as  directed.  Sunlight Soap will not injure  even the daintiest fabric or the  hands, and the clothes will be  perfectly white, woolens soft  and fluffy.  The reason for this is because  Sunlight Soap is absolutely pure,  contains no injurious chemicals  ���������indeed, nothing but the active,  cleansing, dirt-removing proper-  ties of soap thait is nothing but  soap.

BRITISH   COLUMBIA.  .$  ������.  te  i���������  f  QUANTOCK's great-grandmother,  you remember, sudlienly expired before she had quite told  the dwarf the secret of the  rock. And this filled him with grief  and anxiety, for he loved the gentle  Blvina, and for her sake longed to  save the village from the terrible  flood which his great-grandmother  had foretold, and which he could not  prevent without learning the half-revealed secret about the rock.  The villagers, after the death of his  old great-grandmother, saw nothing  of Quantock for many weeks; and  when he went Into the village, and the  children were about to tantalize him,  as usual, Elvlna rushed forward and  protected him. o  They all liked Elvina; besides, was  she not the daughter of the Mayor?  So they allowed the dwarf to go his  way in peace, and once more he had  to thank the pretty girl for her kindness. In return he told her of what  the ancient dame had said to him, and  she was grateful, indeed, and Informed herr'father, the Mayor, who was  very seriously alarmed, for he knew  what havoc the mountain floods had  done to other villages. ���������  All through the summer Quantock  went exploring the mountains to try  to And the rock his great-grandmother had referred to. Sometimes  he spent whole nights and days on the  banks of the mountain lake, feeding  upon berries and goat's milk, in his  anxiety to discover the half-revealed  secret.  Once or twice he descended to Delly-  dale worn out and tired, and the villagers wondered why he was always  up in the mountains, for they could  often see his poor dwarfed figure  climbing slowly from peak to peak.  On the occasions of his visits he was  always kindly greeted by Elvina,  whose friendly smiles gladdened his  heart, and he went away more firmly  -_resojye_d thaa_e:y_&rj_tft ���������Ba.ve___.e__ah.d_.  therefore, the entire village from the  flood.  - The summer passed away and the  rains began to descend, and Quantock,  the dwarf, began to despair of ever  finding the rock, when one day, as he  was seeking shelter from a very hard-  downpour of rain, he missed his footing and rolled down the mountain  side until he fell into a sort of cavern,  where, although haltstunned, he managed to creep into a dry corner.  In the morning, when the sun was  up, he examined his hiding place, and  found he was Immediately beneath a  ) gigantic   rock   that    rested   on   two  ledges of black stone.   Instinct told  him that here was the rock which he  had so long been seeking.  He saw at once that if a flood reached this point it would diverge and  overwhelm the village. But if the  rock could be removed, then the  stream would rush down the channel,  which was now and had for centuries  been blocked by this enormous rock.  He hurried down to the village, and,  seeking out Elvina, begged her to go  and see the rock, and she went. Then  the Mayor and chief villagers went  and were convinced, and only Stor-  mont, who was angry because the  dwarf had discovered what he and  other young man had sought for in  vain, and because Elvina was ever a  warm champion of the dwarf, laughed  at the idea, and. walking away, called  them all a "pack of fools and gulls."  The season, as Quantock's great-grandmother had predicted, was the wettest  for years. The rain came down in blinding torrents, and the Mayor was at his  wits' end what to do. At last Quantock,  the dwarf, said:  "Let all the horses in the village be  harnessed together; let a chain be fastened round the rock, and then let all the  steeds be urged forward."  Again Stormont laughed; and as he  was one of the richest grape growers  in the country, the people had to listen  to him; but he had no sensible suggestion to make. So, the Mayor called a  meeting in the Town Hall, and told  them of the dwarf's proposition, and,  somewhat shamefacedly, the villagers,  remembering how they had treated the  unfortunate cripple,  agreed that, as it  was the only plan to save them all, it  should be tried.  Already the lake was trickling over;  and if the earthwork should give way  the rush would come. Just as Quantock  had suggested, the rock was chained  round and the horses harnessed thereto; and none too soon, for the waters,  high ih-the mountains, were giving forth  angry mumblings. And at the very first  tug at the rock the dam began to  weaken and a heavy, stream gushed  forth with violence. For over an hour,  amidst the greatest excitement that almost amounted to a panic, the horses,  cheered on by the met, struggled with  the gigaiitic stone.  At last it showed signs ofmoving, as  the waters came nearer and nearer, and  Stormont finally began to take an interest in the work, but his offers of help  were too late to do him any good. However, he insisted on pushing his way  closer to the rock than was really safe,  in order to see if it was really shifting  from its position.  "A long pull, and a strong pull and  a pull all together," you know, usually  brings about successful results. So the  rock, with a sound as of thunder, rolled  from the ledge, crushing reckless Stormont beneath its enormous weight, just  as the lake burst, and, with the fury of  a thousand seas, roared down the mountain side, frito the open channel���������and,  thanks to Quantock. the dwarf, the vil  lage was saved.  All along Quantock had loved Elvinaj  but now Elvina for the first time madel  an open declaration of her love fpr him.  and her intention to marry the Dwarf  Hero of Dellydale.  Her father tried to dissuade her from  her purpose, promising to make Quantock as rich as he could desire to vbe,  if only she would reconsider her decision. ������'  But no! "My heart,'- said Elvina, "is  with the true heart of one who has suffered���������with one who has proved himself  a hero."  So it ended by the prettiest girl in  Dellydale becoming the bride of Quantock, the dwarf. S. J. F.

Here is���������the game of  Bounce Battle.  Each ot tho players (who play In pairs,  by the way) must bend over until his  elbows are bolow his knees,1 and clasp  his hands about his shins. Then some  one should thrust a stick ��������� a smooth,  round one���������through the aperture between his knees nnd elbows.  Now, trussed ln thlis fashion, two  players should attack each other, each  trying to push tho other off his balance,  no thnt ho will roll nn his back, where  he will be quito helpless to rise, unless  ho unclasps his hahds nnd removoH tho  stick. But while trying to push his opponent each one must be very careful to  preserve IiIb own balnnce.  A gentle shove with your shoulder, a  nudge with your elbow or a ,1olt with  your hip will do the trick, if you strike  your oppononi at a moment when his  balance Is uncertain.  Bo careful not to hop against him if  he Its on the lookout and braced for the  attack, for In thnt case your effort will  be fatal to your own balance.  But It In  old game.   It was played by knights o  old.   And it is played,by the soldiers of  the British army to this day; also by  tho   schoolboys   of   Eton    ond    other  schools In England.

Thinking to learn something of the  child's life and perhaps do something  for her, the lady asked:  "Little girl, do you go to the kindergarten?"  Turning a pair of wondering eyes on  her, thochlld replied:  "No, I don't know anything about  that kind of a garden.

Judge Kneeland repented the question, "Who was tho young man you  wore talking to by the cabin window, and who came and looked after you as you hurried down the  gang-plank?" And as he spoke he fixed his keen gray eyes searchingly upon her face, wondering why the question should so agitate her.  The girl tried to speak, but the  name she would have uttered died  away in her throat, leaving no  sound.  How could she breath the words  that would consign the man she loved to a prison cell, even though he  and her own dear father , were the  bitterest of foes? No, she could not.  She would die first.  "Why do you not answer? Did you  not hear me?" exclaimed the judge,  irritably,  "1���������"  Before he could conclude the sentence Olive's head had fallen heavily  forward on her breast, and she slipped from the seat beside him to his  feet in a death-like swoon.  The judge was thoroughly frightened, lie drove quickly to the nearest drug-store, which, fortunately  enough, was in close proximity, and  restoratives were quickly applied,  and in less than ten minutes later  the judgo was greatly relieved to  see Olive open her eyes.  "Now, what in the world caused  the girl to go off like that?" he  mused, never dreaming that his  question had the slightest thing to  do with it, concluding that the great  excitement which she had undergone  during the past few days had told  upon her delicate nerves. "Do you  feel better now, Olive?" he asked,  anxiously, as he helped her into the  death which he had but so recently  come into, possession of,' and which  completely exonerated Roger.  "And there is another matter which  we might,as well settle here and  now," continued the judge, "and  that is the question concerning  Olive's future, which we were discussing on that never-to-be-forgotten  morning when this trouble occurred,  and I have only to say, my dear  boy, that I wish to take you once  more into my employ, and if you are  of the same mind concerning Olive  that you were then, why, I simply  withdraw my objections, and you  are at liberty to win the littlo  witch's lqvo, providing you can."  (To be continued.)  A MAN TO AVOID.  COMPARISONS.  coupe again to  drive home.  "Yes, quite well, papa," she assented���������a little weai'ily he thought���������  as she leaned back among tho cushions.  "I, should like to stop at the 'Argus' office to put in a personal, if  you don't mind the delay of a few  moments. By the bye," he added, "I  have strange news to tell you'about  Koger Glendenning."  Olive tried to speak, but it seemed  to her as if ,a hand heavy us death  lay on her lips and held them fast.  "Tall-a about your romances," went  on tho judge, quickly; "why, what I  have just heard would make the fu-  ituro of a novelist, if one could get  hold of it who could work it up  right. You know fto'iio of us thought  Roger was burned in that fire, while  others felt sure he escaped,"  Olive nodded faintly. Every word  seemed liko the sharp thrust of a  sword through her heart. "Ah,  Heaven! had hor lather recognized  him'?" It scorned liko an ago to her  until ho uttered the next words.  "I wish that I could ascertain his  Into beyond  all shadow of   doubt,"  ho    wont on,  thoughtfully,     "for   I  have just learned through papers forwarded mo to-day thnt ho was    entirely innocent of that forgery, nnd  that his    villainous brothor    Oscar  wns tho real criminal.     Oscar   met  with a terrible)    accident in    Philadelphia, yesterday, which resulted in  his doath a few hours later, and on  his iluuth-bed lie made a lull confession to a notary whom ho hnd sinn-  moned. Now listen, Olive, mid   seo if  you  hnvo ovor  heard  anything    liko  it, This Oscar forged my namo to a  noto,  thinking hu would have ainplo  tiuio to tuko it up do it should full  clue.  In this ho   miscalculated,   and  on  tlio day when it must leak out,  ho camo und cunt'ossed to his brother Hogcr what ho hud done, throwing himself on bis mercy to aid him  in raising tho money to taku up tho  note and savo himself.     Hogcr,   In  his groat indignation und iingur, bitterly refusing     Then    tlio   scheming  younger brothor thought of tt clover  plan to bund Hogur to his will.   Ho  avowed then mid there that ho, Oscar, had jnfit proposal murringo   to  yen,  Olive,   and  that yon  luul that  tiny accepted liiui, i{iul that if I discovered tho existence of tho    forged  noto it would ruin his prospects."  A low cry of utter honor    broke  from the girl's white lips; but not  heeding it, hor father wont, on:  "k iiuppunod to Know tlmt    Roger  hitiix.it    tUVU-ii   ,**������",   ���������",���������    tii .11 ,   ,'uS    *.'(���������(>  an hour before Om'.m rami! to him  ho luul nskml mo il" In* miirht. pay  his addresses to you, ami wliilo tho  question    was pending l.i'twc-ert    us,  ..n-l    !.,,f-,r,.

Such  conduct simply amazes, me. I have never  before known such *'a case of wonderful    sacrifice.    Jt  fairly    appalls  me  when  1   think of it.  My mission    to *  the   'Argus'     oflice  is  to send    des-j  patches far and  wide to find*'   Roger1  (ilendenning,   if he is in thc land of  the  living,   and  bring him back and  restore him to public trust and con- j  faience. 1 declare, it, is. certainly more '  wonderful than the general    run    of  novels." |  He was utterly shocked at the  scene which followed. J  Olive threw    herself :\n his  . arms, j  clinging to him and weeping��������� hyster- '  it-ally,  though he could not begin to '  interpret the unintelligible words she  was   endeavoring  to  utter    between  her choking sobs  and strange laughter.  "Olive!" he cried, "what are you  trying to say? You remind me of a  child of ten instead of a young woman of twenty."  She never knew in what words she  told him, making him understand,  at length, that it was Roger Glen-  dpnning whom he had seen at the  cabin window.  The judge ordered the horses turned at once, and they drove back  with all speed to the steamer; but  they were too late. Roger Glendenning had already gone ashore.  Their search for him proved all in  vain. If the earth had suddenly opened and swallowed him, he could  not have been more completely hidden from them. Then they proceeded  to advertise for him.  Roger Glendenning saw the advertisements, and smiled bitterly to  himself, wondering if they thought  him mad enough to walk with open  eyes into the trap they had spread  for him Again and again he read  lhe���������itersa_a.dvertJsement-_which^.con^  DREADED L0UP-GAR0U.  tained but these few words  "If Roger Glendenning will call at  No. ��������� Block Avenue, he will learn  of something greatly to his advantage."  "Somo one has recognized me, and  they are on my track," he muttered.  "The only thing for me to do is to  leave Albany with as little delay as  possible."  This he was just about doing when  a later "personal" caught his eye,  and held him spellbound with emotion, it read as follows:  "Will- Roger Glendenning grant  Olive K an interview, at her earnest request, at No. -v- B  Avenue,  Tuesday afternoon?"  Thoso words seemed to fire his  brain, seemed to mako his heart  throb a thousand times faster than  was its wont, and to mako tho blood  course madly through his veins.  Olive had sent for him; she wished  to seo him. That one thought was  sweeter than tho breath of heaven  to his dry, scorched soul.  Onco tho wonder vaguoly stole over him that it was all a mso. But  no; they would not daro uso her  namo in that way in such a case.  She would never permit it And Inst-  ly camo tho chill thought, had they  provailod upon Olivo to botray hini?  Ah, no! Perish tho mlsorablo idea  that had found lodgmont for ovon an  instant in his brain, Ho might as  well mistrust ono of Clod's white  angels, ho told himself.  IIo mado up his mind to go to her,  Sho would never call to him in vain.  Why, bo would havo laid down lifo  itself, and thought it no sacrilico,  for her sweot sake. Ho would trust  blindly to Heaven und to Olivo. Sbo  bad called him. Ho would go, come  what might, ffo would not go to her  in disguise. No, ho could never do  that; and, utterly regardless of possiblo consequences, Roger Glowlon-  nlng presented hlmsolf at tho hour  and plnco appointed.  IIo wun ushered into a cool, dim  parlor, odorous with tho peifumo of  grent vnsos heaped with groat crimson roses and white hyacinths.

Superstition of Canadian Wilderness���������"Blame Good   Howler."       i  Bob's natural young voice hroke the  strained "alienee."' "That fellow is a  blamed good howler," he observed, and  the frightened guides drew a long  breath, and Vezina showed his access  of courage by getl-lng up to throw a  handful of blrchbark on the Are. Bob  chuckled a bit, unconscious of the bad  moment he had averted. "Vezina, did  you think that howling: was a loup-  garou?" he asked.  And with that something happened  which, fitting as It did to the strained  tension of the superstitious men, was  extraordinary and uncomfortable. I  The blaze of the blrchibark Just  thrown on went out quickly, and a log  fell away at the moment, scattering  the others, leaving us suddenly in par  tlal darkness. Coming after the Intense  light, It seemed more profound, and it  was as If the firelight had been turned  off and moonlight turned on at a  touch, for tre whole breeze swept  forest stirred with mystical white I  fingers*. An opening of an old  windfall ran from um to the rlv- j  er, and there came from this glade" a,  loud, sharp crash of a broken limb.  Every eye turned to the spot. In the  path of the moon, 'black against the  whlte-Hghted river, high on pedestal of  ���������torm-fellad" tree trunks, stood a big  wolf. Still as death the wild thing regarded us, and still as death we stared  back, and then with a spring I was in  my tent, and with another I was hack  rifle in hand.  I cannot remember loading or cooking, but I, remember seeing the dark  mass at the end of the barrel and I  remember the shot dying in the hills.  If I had hit, If we had dragged a dead  animal Into camp, all would have been_  "simple.

And he gazed at me with  big childish eyos as if begging me t������  contradict.  The One Who Ia Generally Dl-Ulced  by Other Men.  v The cynical old maid would probably  tell us that all men should be avoided.  The happily married young woman  will say that is nonsense���������all men are  good, as undoubtedly they are to a certain extent. Rarely does one come I  across any man who is thoroughly  bad.  Yet the old maid is not entirely  Wrong, either. There are some men  whom It is well to avoid, and the young  girl who Is just entering social lifo  should take the advice of those who  have had more experience than herself  ���������that is to say, in the greHter Issues.  It savors of youth and almost foolishness to refuse to know a man even  slightly because of some faults.  In the matter of real friendship, however, and marriage, a girl is unwise If  she accept as friend or lover a man  whom other men dislike. Such a man  (/is not often worthy of a good woman's  consideration and certainly the Inexperienced girl is better to keep at  arm's length a.man of this sort.  Either he ls mean or selfish, a blusterer or must plead guilty to other  faults. As an acquaintance perhaps he  might be possible, but as a friend most  inadvisable.  One wants a man who is comparatively strong all over if he Is to be admitted to the innermost sanctuary. The  man who is impossible in one or more  respects must certainly be relegated  to the mere outward fringe.���������New York  American.  OLD SCRAPBOOKS.  A FAMOUS OLD HYMN.  Pathetic Origin ot "Blest Be the Tie  That Blnda."  A pathetic and yet charming story Is  told of tho origin of the well known  hymn, "Blest B_ the Tie That Binds,"  which was written by Rev. John Faw-  cett, an English Baptist, who died in  1817, having spent nearly sixty years  ln the ministry.  It was in 1772, after a few years  Bpent in pastoral work, that be was  called to London to succeed the Rov.

Usually the pagea are pasted on both  sides, making them thick and' uneven,  They are broad, and their ornate bindings are seldom behind glass doors, but  easily accessible on tables and shelves.  After turning over the pages, sneezing,  head colds and hay fever have often  resulted without the cause being suspected. In our library was a scrap-  book of colored fashion plates from  1853 to 1892. Another was filled with  newspaper clippings of the war be-  "tweearthiritatesr- They^were-prizeii"  and frequently read, but colds almost  invariably followed. We sent them to  a bindery to be fumigated and rebound.  To prevent in great measure this condition, use a carbolized paste, paste  only on one side of the page, keep them  behind glass and provide them with  oil paper covers. Do not let this adverse side prevent any one from making scrapbooks Use preventives as  with all old books whose pages have  been turned until they are sufficiently  uneven to harbor dust.���������Good Housekeeping.   ^ , "  LONG WALK IN OFFICE,  Ae Soon aa *We Begin to Make Them  We Begin to Suffer.  , We would not have to strive so for  courage if what we vaguely call  "things" yrere more evenly distributed  among us, for no one's lot would then  eoem to hi/n an evil one. If we Were  all humpbacked or lame or blind;  if every husband were unfaithful and  every child a cross; if we were all poor  and no man had any more than another; if nobody's son died in his early  strength and nobody was loved while  we sat neglected, then ' who" of us  would know what sorrows and afflictions were? We-.would take each of  them for granted, as a Chinaman takes  his yellow skin and an Indian his red  ouo.  It ls because;we see our estate differing from that of our fellows tbat we  are tempted to comparisons, and It ia  in tho making of thoso comparison*}^  that a sense of our sorrows, like the  knowledge of our afflictions, is first  born. How would we have known that  we were poor unless we had seen some  one else who was richer or that our  son was unsuccessful unless the son of  somebody else were making a great  mark ln the world? Would our little  children be unhappy with only one  dress had they not seen other children with two?  It comes to this, then: When we begin to make comparisons, we begin to  suffer. This may seem to ie a hard  saying, but it is a true one.���������Lilllo  Hamilton French In Harper's Bazar.  Giant Whale Tows a Steamer.

The whale had been harpooned in  the ordinary manner, but was not killed, as usual, the bomb attached to the  harpoon failing to explode at the critical Instant. As the monster was only  wounded and enraged there was nothing else to do but pay out line and  play the big fish until it should becomo  exhausted!

The teura continued  on thoir mad race with Mr Grieve  holding  to  the  lines,  until  Mr  Mooren store was reuohed whon a  wheel coming in contact with a  telegraph pole, thd sudden   shook  parted the traces  and  threw  Mr  Grieve out over tho   dashboard.
