"These pans  seemed to concentrate their full force  In the small of my back, and the pain  was almost unbearable. It made me  go bent over and I could not straighten up to savo my life.  "When I went to urinate it gave ma  great pain, and you may imagine I  -was not able to do much work, 1 consulted a doctor, but his prescription  did me no good:  "Then I started to use Dodd's Kidney Pills and.

IVo English congregation would, have  listened to such sermons as used to be  popular in tbe Presbyterian churches  of Scotland. There is indeed a story  told of a dissenting preacher named  Lobb in tbe seventeenth century who,  wben South went to hear him, "being  mounted up in the pulpit and naming  bis text, made nothing of splitting it  up into twenty-six divisions, upon  which separately be very carefully undertook to expatiate in their order.  Thereupon the doctor rose up, and,  jogging the friend who bore him company, said, 'Let us go home and fetch  our gowns and slippers, for I find this  man will make night-work of it.'"  But. Mr. Lobb himself was humane  in the pulpit as compared to a; certain  Mr. Thomas Boston, to whose sermons  Sir Archibald Geikie bus drawn attention in his "Scottish Reminiscences."  An Art Tliat Every Girl Should  Determine to aiaster.  One thing every girl sl.ould know  something of practically as well as  theoretically is the art of writing a  graceful, well expressed, dainty note  or letter. There are few things more  pleasant to tlie recipient than a really  clever and witty letter, a fact which  every girl should bear in mind. She  should understand that one of the unpardonable sins is a gift unacknowledged, a question unanswered, a request to which there has been uo response.  When she������has learned the rudiments,  when she knows what tbe ordinary  rules of grammar, punctuation and  composition require, let her not by any  means be satisfied. After this she must  learn to express herself individually,  to give the graceful turn and say the  pleasant thing. Nothing is such death  to good writing, whether tbe tiny note  or the lengthy letter, as haste. No one  can do justice to either without giving  herself up to it entirely for the time being. There should be no signs of telegraphic curtness, or, ou the other hand,  of "padding," or trying to fill up a giv-  en|$iimount of space with words ouly,  sotlhat the, document may present to  the eye the appearance of a letter.  A girl should understand what a value there is in the little note of reply,  congratulation, condolence. In writing tbem she, should avoid stock  phrases and speak from her heart, naturally, simply. She should also recognize what a bond is a brightly* written,  informing letter between friends and,  knowing you cannot get something for  nothing, should bring to it every faculty. To compare notes with an absent  friend as to books read, pictures seen  and people met is an education no girl  can afford to neglect. ��������� New Orieana  Times-Democrat.  *���������������������������������������������������������������*���������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������<���������������������������  ���������WESTERN  CAMAbUH- EDITORS ���������  !

Few housewives understand, as they  all should, the art of broiling, and consequently chops and steaks are often  robbed of their delicate flavor by frying in a'pan.

LQUIS,  Mr. Thomas Boston, who wrote a book  called "Primitiae et Ultima," was minister of the gospel at Ettrick. In a sermon on "Fear aiid Hope, Objects of  the Divine Complacency," from the  text Psalm cxlvji, 11, "The Lord tak-  oth pleasure in them that fear him and  in those that hope in his mercy," Mr.  ���������Boston..,"after-tin introduction in four  sections, deduced six doctrines, each  subdivided into from throe to eight  heads, but the last doctrine required  another sermon wbich contained 'a  practical improvement of tlio whole,'  arranged under eighty-six bends. A  sermon on Matthew xi, 2S, wns subdivided into seventy-six heads.*" On this  text, indeed, Mr. Boston preached four  such sermons.  It is more than doubtful whether any  bruins or hearts south of the Tweed  could huvo stood the strain of such  discourses. But a Scotch preacher,  not In the present degenerate age, bus  boon known to preach from flvo to six  hours nt a stretch, mid sometimes  when one preacher bad finished his  .sermon another would begin and thoro  would bo a succession of preachers  delivering sermon upon sermon until  tho unhappy congregations wero Uopt  listening to "tho word" for as niuuy  as ton hours without a break-Bishop  Wllldou lu tlio Nineteenth Century.

Place the piece of meat in the  double broiler and hold it as near tho  coals as possiblo until the surface is  brown, turning frequently. It will take  three or four minutes for this. Now  raise tbe broiler several inches above  the bed of coals and continue the cooking until the moat Is.done.  The broiler must be turned often. A  good rule is to count ten slowly, then  turn tho broiler. A steak or chop cut  a little more than an Inch thick will  cook nicely in ten minutes.

It is only ten years  ago that he went, as a boy, to "devil"  and learn the case at the Forest Free  Press, pulished at his birthplace, in  Lambton county, Ontario. Less than  eight years ago he came west, without capital and w,ith hardly any experience, started in, a boy of eighteen,  to stick type for one of the papers be*  now owns. In that interval of eight  years Mr. McPherson has proved  himself a newspaper porker and a  business man of ability and industry.  From setting typo he was promoted  to foreman, manager and finally proprietor. All this took place in loss  than five years. Could there be any  more striking example of the opportunities offered in Western ��������� Canada  to the newspaper worker with the necessary equipment? Nor was this  the full measure of Mr. McPherson's  success. No sooner, had he consolidated and strengthened his new purchase than ho sot to work to absorb  his most dangerous competitor. And  in two years he had accomplished  this also. To-day he.owns a dally  and weekly paper In the town of  third Importance In Manitoba, and in  addition to his labors as oditor and  manager, continues to find tlmo to  look after several important subsidiary enterprises in which he is Interested.  Tho man who can accomplish so  much at such an early ago, oven allowing that circumstances have in  somo sort favored him/Is no common  man. Tho successful maintenance of  the position ho hns acquirer! In news-  papordom demands nlso qualities,  both mental and businesslike, not  found everywhere. These qualities  Mr. McPherson possesses, but thoy  aro not always apparent on cnrolops  obnorvatlon.

As a writer he has perhaps no such  claims to brilliancy as are possessed  by some others among Western journalists, but his work, whether editorial or reportorial, has always teen  marked, if not by distinction, by clearness and vigor.  The energy that Mr. McPherson  puts into riewsgathering he likewise  puts into the business end of his papers. Ho hustles as much for adver-  tlsn'g'as he does for copy, .and with  equal succcess. The columns of his  papers contain the business annuonce-  ments of almost every man doing  business in Portage,, and many from  adjacent points. The advertisements  are well displayed, the practical knowledge Mr. McPherson has of all the  mechanical departments of newspaper work making him critical on' that  score.  As before stated, Mr. McPherson is  a native of Forest, Ontario, where he  received his education. His entry into  the printing business was wider the  auspices of H. J. Pettypiece, on the  Forest Free Press. In tho fall of  189(5 the proprietor of the Portage  daily came west, and engaged on the  Semi-Wdekly Liberal. Later lie went  to Neepawa on the Press, edited by  Mr. A. Dunlop, and in 1898 returned  to Portage as foreman. The Liberal  was then owned by a company, with  D. J. G. Rutherford, M. P., as president, and was conducted by Mr.  James Hooper, the present King's  printer for Manitoba. The following  year Mr. Hooper was appointed manager of the Winnipeg Telegram, and  Mr. McPherson succeeded him as  editor and manager. After the general elections of 1900-, Dr. Rutherford  was appointed '*.* chief veterinary in-  ���������BiTectoi-T^and-remoyed-io-Cttawa��������� and-  Mr. McPherson purchased the Semi-  Weekly Liberal and conducted it till  the spring of 1903, when he purchased  the:Daily and Weekly Graphic, and  merged the two concerns, conducting  the Daily Graphic and the Weekly  Manitoba Liberal. , At the time of the  purchase he had as partner Mr. J.

That is  why they cure for good and the  same time improve the health in  every way.  Mr. Geo. Johnson, of the village of  Ohio, N...S., gives strong proof of the  truth of the above statements.

His appetite  failed, he grew weak, and could  hardly do the usual work that falls to  the lot of a boy on a farm. We tried  several kidney medicines, but they  did not help him any. Then a friend  recommended Dr. Williams' . Pink  Pills, and this was the first medicine  that reached the cause of the trouble.  He used the piils for a couple of  months, and I am thankful to say is  now as strong and healthy as any  six boxes for  $2.50.

Yet this  morning she was tearing down Snake  Rock canyon upon a mustang, not  tbrtje months* from a broncho blister,  with gaudy, cumbersome horse trappings that had been brought up from  Mexico more as a curiosity than for  use.-.  But there was no fear, no self consciousness in her face, and instead of  trying to check the mustang her hand  went out from time to time to stroke  and pat its neck encouragingly as her  .voice urged it on.  When she left the canyon she struck  a more level country, a:ad here, the  mustang was let out to its full speed.  Bedrock .was still ten miles away, and  she must reach it and be back to the  mine before night. It was already well  on toward noon.  1 Bedrock was a one street town which  commenced and ended in teuts, with a  few unpointed frame buildiugs ln ths  center. It was an hour after noon  When Joyce slipped from her horse In  front of the oflice of Gregg & Graw,  mine brokers and operators. Both of  the proprietors were in, and both rose  at her entrance. Young ladies of  Joyce's type were not yet common at  Bedrock.  "I wish to see you about the Snake  Rock mine lease," Joyce began graciously.  Gregg bowed, but not before the visitor imagined she saw a swift glance  flash between tbe partners.  "I understand it expires in ten days,"  said Gregg blandly. "You are Miss  Killian?" ���������.

"But about the lease. Will you kindly  make It out as soon as possible ? I. have  some shopping to do in town, and it is  a long ride back to camp.   Mr. Temple  promptly."  "You mean that you will not re-lease  the Snake Rock mine on any terms?"  the girl's white lips asked.  "Exactly. We expect to resume operations there ourselves."  "I understand���������you have heard. And  I suppose you call this business. You  made a fortune out of the miue, and  then when you lost the vein you leased  it to Mr. Temple through misrepresentations.

He told  me that you were up there yourselves  only a short time ago trying to induce  him to re-lease the mine for $25,000, believing it to be exhausted. Now"���������  "As Temple has rediscovered the  vein, richer than ever," finished Graw  coolly, "we propose to operate it ourselves. But you may tell him that if  he will turn the miue over to us at  daylight tomorrow we will pay him  back one-half the year's lease, $25,-  000." ���������-������ -  "And let him lose the other $75,000,"  flashed back Joyce. "No, thank you.  We will hold the mine until the very  last moment or me leuse.-  But once outside she wondered if she  had done the best she could. He was  down in the mine working fiercely  with his men at the almost pure vein  which the explosives had uncovered  and believing that she would return  with tbe new lease. Only ten more  days, and he did not know it What  could sbe do?  Before she had gone a hundred yards  she knew, and instead of keeping on  toward the stores she hurried to the  only printing' office Bedrock contained.  An hour later the town was conspicuously posted with: "Men wanted at tk_  Snake Rock mine for ten days. Wages  $15 a day, pack mules $10."  .���������"��������� Ordinary wages for "good laborers  was four or five.- Bosses and superintendents did net average fifteen. In  an hour men were leaving regular jobs  of work and ruthlessly breaking contracts. When Joyce finished her shopping and started for home she found  stragglers and groups with picks and  shovels scattered along the trail for  two miles or more. But she reached  the mouth of the mine flrst and sent  an imperative summons for Temple te  come to the surface.

In part the  traveler says:  The automobile, a twenty-four  horse power touring car, was transformed from a road vehicle to a railway carriage by removing tho rubber  tired wheels and substituting steel  rimmed flanged wheels, suitable to  run upon the tracks, and by locking  the steering device. The car, with  four passengers and baggage, weighed five thousand pounds, including  the wheels, which weighed one thousand three hundred pounds.  Very little encouragement was given when I first suggested the idea of  driving a road vehicle upon the  tracks of a railroad. Officials of the  railways companies, experienced  automobilists and friends said it  was impracticable, and that an ex-  ,I^din^nt__w,ou.ld___i:esult^.n_disast.ar,   Colonel Thomas Lowry, president  of tho Soo Pacific line, however,  thought differently, and granted my  request for the use of his road from  Ineoeu Ia Dnfrylnv,  It la plainly evident that the success  In dairying doponds very much upon  tho productive ciipaclty of tho Individual cows that make up tho herd.

Heaven help us! What  woman has not in whatever line of  enterprise she has undertaken? Tha  cutting, chilling, sneering, ill-natured  discouragement, oftentimes even from  one's own parents, stabs like cold  steel. A woman never gets over it,  even when she is too strong and  brave to be downed and goes on and  achieves in spite of her family. But  many a woman who otherwise would  haye made for herself a noble career  has had all the aspiration crushed  out of her by the sheers of father,  husband or brother.

There are several instances on record where in South Africa the white  master or black servant bas trained  one or more ostriches to harness and  has driven them regularly in a light  trap or even ridden them liko a horse.

They have even been  known to show real signs of enjoyment and pleasure at being in harness,  and certainly they go to work with a  will when thoroughly tamed in thia  manner.  Courtship in Tibet.  A prominent Englishwoman who has  visited Tibet says that the people  of that country >have long ago solved  the question which has been causing  much discussion in England for years.  In the lama country, she says, you  hear no cry "Why don't men propose?''  Every girl is married and old maids  are unknown. The matchmaking  place, or the "shambang," as it is called, is a Io-*** hut, generally situated  midway between two villages, where  maidens and young men in every class  of life congregate around small fires  which they kindle themselves. If a  man is attracted by a certain girl he  invites ber and her relatives to partake  of tbo warmth around his fire. This is  taken as a gentle hint that he is thinking of proposing. The parents very  seldom if ever visit tho "shambang."  The girls spin, assisted by tho men, tell  stories and sing until they tire. When  a man bas made his choice ho dresses  in his best and takes wine and food  to the parents of the girl ho has chosen. If his suit is approved his food  is oaten and his wiue is drunk and  the girl is his after he has puid a small,  amount of money to her father.

following day he was much surprised
to receive from his friend a note for

Myriad Gloriea of the Canadian Woodi mm*  Forest* in the Waning Time  ���������f the Year.  The asters and golden-rods come  out in profusion to bedeck the departing year. In their rich and glowing abuntVance there is a perfection  and fulfillment, seeming to complete  the promise of tho delicate and liinid  flowers of tho year's awakening. But  there are other llowers lingerJng with  the waning season, whoso tribute  may pass unnoticed in tho crowding  of gay and brilliant colors. Tho  fringed gentian is now in full  bloom, the rich, doep ultramarine of  its feathery-lipped 'flowers, decorating  tho borders of tho open woods and  touching -even the( dryest hills with  an occasional retiring point of color.  Tho tubular (lowers, ending jn folded  feathers of rich blue, tho erect attitude, and regular, opposite leaves  and branches give it a distinction  and character, opart from its lato  arrival and protracted stay, when  tho vigorous composites c. j\vd out  inoro retiring and dainty flowers. It  is tho most tempting of autumn flowers, its coy habits, rich color, and  soft, frail aspect making it a special  favorite. Yet it is one of tho flowers  that appeal for protection. An annual, perpetuated only by seed, every  flower plucked lessens the chances of  a renewed acquaintance in the returning seasons. To see and admire a  fringed gentian and leave it to fulfill  its mission is the summit of virtuous sclf-abnegatipn. ������  The blind gentian, a sister flower,  seems, in spite of its rich beauty,  strangely incomplete. It seems to  have forgotten to blossom. Thc  elongated, oval loops of deep blue  remain clgged, imprisoning the delicate floral mechanism in beautiful  dungeons. The blind gentian prefers  the borders of swamps and marshes,  where it reaches its tall stem above  the dense grass, displaying its' closely-bunched loops deeper in color than  the clearest sky. There is often ano-.  ther bunch of loops clustered on the  ���������ide of the stem and pointing    up-  war. a. rncfr irec-uispmy o������ ������������������������������������������������;  and handsome form seem to atone  for their seeming incompleteness, Occasionally, for no apparent reason,  they appear clothed in puro white,  and then they can be seen in the  distance, conspicuous ^among the  dark greens and browns of ths  marshes. Between these two t3rpical  forms, and partaking of the character of both, is a sister bearing the  unpoetic name of soapwort gentian.  A more delicate sister, with pale  blue flowers, is called the stiff gentian. Its straight, slondor, tubular  flowers top off the stems and branches in bunches of from three to seven  or eight. Sometimes two and occasionally one will decorate tho end of  a lower branch, but generally the  flowers stand up together in closo  bunches. There is a geometrical appearance in tho straight, enlarging  tubes terminating in regular angle*  and standing close and evenly tt together. Tho lack of rich ultramarino  is made up in part by thc more delicate forms and greater profusion of  flowers. Tlio season has not been favorable to the development of color,  for somo have come out in puro  white, thus imitating the tall, and  robust blind gentian of. the marshes.  This is a somewhat unusual departure. There is the warmest appreciation and the most eager greeting for  the flowers that hasten to meet the  spring. But there is even a stronger  human appeal in the delicate blossoms that linger in the fall and  brighten the departing year. T!i3  gentians wait and wait till the falling leaves make their rich ultramarine more deep and strong by contrast. They wait till the frost-touch-  US their delicate petals with its  blighting fingers, and fades their riclv  blue to sickly white. Thei" end is  worthy and heroic, for thoy cheer  the season that brings tho sadness  pf parting.  Widely Known Proverb.

Canada exports annually millions of chickens to the United States and  Great Britain.  The consumption of poultry in Canada is increasing rapidly and the  poultry dealers complain that they cannot get enough poultry to till their  orde^^^*^-^*^^Cr     J&fri't-gi'i&irs. -f  '������ One woman bought a No. 2 Chatham Incubator the first of March  ���������she had five hatches by July first and had four hundred plump,  sturdy.chicks. In six months her Incubator had paid her $ioo.oo, several  times its cost.   A Chatham Incubator should pay for itself each hatch.  Wc have perfected an Incubator and brooder. We believe it is now  absolutely the best in the world. We have suflicient capital behind us, and  we are out for the entire business in incubators. We know that there is no  other incubator that can approach the  Chatham Incubator  This is our proposition: To demonstrate our absolute confidence in the Chatham Incubator  we will send one to you, freight prepaid, and you make your first payment in October, r-905.  The fact that we sell our Incubators in this manner guarantees them to the fullest extent.  Thirty days' trial is a delusion and a snare. If you have good luck you may get off one hatch in  that time, and even then you are uncertain, and if you reject the machine you will have to pay the  freight both ways. But with us you send in your order and we ship the machine prepaid. When  it arrives, if it seems all right, start your hatch, and we will give you until October, 190s, before  you have to pay a cent in cash, We positively guarantee that the machine is a good hatcher.  Every machine should sell a dozen, and we will, on no account, allow a machine that is defective  to remain in any neighborhood.

Engineer Crushed ana Scalded.
A sad and very painful accident by
���which Dave Grahaqi was seripusly
scalded occurred at Foxwarren, Man.,
a few days ago. He was running a
traction engine, and while backing it
up to the separator the drive levers
refused to stop or control the engine, the consequence being that
Graham, who stuck to his post, was
pinned between the two acblnes. The
jar broke some of the steam pipes,
and -while his gang were getting
chains and. horses to pull the engine
ahead ha received the full force of
steam against his stomach and
thighs. When taken out he was ln a
bad condition, and it is miraculous
that he was neither scalded or crushed to death; as it was, he was badly
injured, but his speedy recovery is
looked for.
