"I beg your pardon, but can you tell
me how to wash a cat?" Christopher
Caswell held up a black kitten, with a
���very dirty white shirt front, to justify
the question.
Catherine Turner caught it in her
arms. "Isn't it a dear!" she cried.
���'Where did you get it?"
"'I didn't get it," said Christopher
���(known to his friends as Kit); "it got
me. You see, last night was pretty
snowy, and this littlo boast followed
me all the^way down the street."
"And you took it in? How good of
-, "I didn't exactly take her in; she led
the way.  After that I couldn't chuck
her out in the snow again."

seemed to him to bore into the inner-

roost recesses of his heart. Ho had
worshiped hor from afar ovor slnco
she had como Into tlio studio building.
This was the first opportunity ho had
bad to speak with hor.
"You got some soap and topld water," explained Kitty. "Then you souse
her well, dry her off and wrap hor In a
blanket aud hold her until sho drle3
out. You have an extra blanket?"
"Oh,  yos,"  said  Kit mendaciously,
vowing that bla steamer rug was none

Kitty handed tho waif to Kit. "Havo
you fed her?"
"Suro," waa tho prompt roRponse.

"You must not overfeed hor," do-

you might like to have it."
"I couldn't think of taking her away j
from you," she cried, "sho Is such a

heart thumping violently, "I go with

pmngea tne unsuspecting guest into
the water. As she touched the water
she gave vent to a howl that frightened
Kit and made a spring for the edge of
the tub.
Kit droppod the soap and grabbed a{
tho cat, but his hands and the cat were
slippery with soap, and he hugged her
to his breast to secure her. This turned,
the frightened little animal on her
back, and in an instant Kit's face was
streaked with crimson..
With a howl he dropped the kitten
back Into the tub, from which she
made her escape unhampered and
promptly vanished under the sofa in
the sitting room.
Kit bathed his face, smeared it with
salve and then started after the kitten
again. With the aid of a crook ban-,
died cane ho dragged herefrom her hiding place, the dust matted in her wet
fur. Clearly that bath was more than
ever a necessity. Kit tempered the water from the faucet and finally accomplished the task.
When' Kitty knocked at the door an
hour later she very nearly fainted at
the apparition which confronted her.
Kit, with his shirt front wet and torn,
his face streaked with blood and
grease, bearing under his arm a wadded mass of steamer rug, certainly presented a formidable appearance.
"I gave her a bath," he grinned
"I should say you d!d," agreed Kitty.
"Did you have a fight V
"Did I?" echoed Kit.0"Do you know,
I'm going to form a nuw society for the
prevention of cruelty from animals?"
"What's left of It," he answered,
picking at the bundle. The cat dropped
out and streaked Into Kitty's apartment. She ran after it, and when she
came out again she carried cloths and
a bottle as well as the kitten.
The kitten she quickly settled ln a
chair before the radiator. Then she
turned her attention to Kit. Tenderly
she washed off the ointment and bathed tlie scratches, applying a soothing
"That will take the sting out," she
said as she turned to so. "If vou win
icttvu me aoor tmiocKea, I'll como in
mter and change the cloths agi.'.u."
To Kit it seemed as If tho familiar
sitting room had suddeuly. grown
gloomy and depressing, and he lay
thore wondering at the difference a woman's presence makes.
Kit Caswell had been a confirmed
bachelor over slnco he had como from
college. Ho railed at marriage and
love until his victims sworo that somo
day they would havo their rovehge by
seeing him struggling against tho advances of tho littlo god of love.
Now he confessed to himself that
their dark prophecies had come true,
������ulv tbey were not dark propbeclos.
Me found, to his surprise, mat Doing ia
lovo was an altogether agreeable sensation.
Ills face soon mended undor Kitty's

North  German  Superstitions.
During an eclipse all hidden treasures are open, and If you are wise
enough to carry a primrose with you
you will be able to help yourself to any
of them. No witchcraft will ever harm
you if you carry a water Illy bud about
your person, and If you should chance
to dream of Illness you will soon be
happily married. If you eat double
cherries you will have twin children,
aiid if you are afraid of lightning take
heed to keep in your house a plant of
orpine or livelong.
Sow peas on Wednesday and Saturday If you do not want them to be
eaten by birds. Put blue marjoram in
the baby's cradle when empty to keep
witches at a respectable distance, and
lf you don't want your last baking to
go moldy you must take good heed not
to bring cornflowers into the house.
Stars are souls, and when one falls a
baby is tiorn. When a baby dies God
makes a hew star. These are all north

As a convalescent food ,jher�� is
nothing to be compared to Dr. Chase's
Nerve Food. Gradually and certainly
this treatment enriches th8 weak,

Mrs. J. Hatcher, 224 Sherbrooke
street, Peterboro, Ont., and whose
husband is a moulaer at the Hamilton Foundry, states: "I had an attack of Inflammatory rheumatism,
which left me,in a very run-down
state of health, and in fact my whole
nervous system seemed exhausted and
worn out.   I could not sleep,   and   at
times the pains in my head were almost unbearable. As a result of
these symptoms I was unable to attend to my housework, and felt miserable most of the tlmo.
On the advice of a friend, I began
using Dr. Chase's Nerve Food, and
can say that it has proved of very
great- benefit to me. I am able to do
my own work now, and feel stronger
and healthier than I have for years. I
can truthfully state that this is due
to the use of Dr. Chase's Nerve Food,
which I consider a great health builder."

The    Worrying    Woman    Helps
Write Wrinkles on Her Face.
A woman' who never worries declares that there is nothing more detrimental to beauty in woman than
worry. The worrying woman does nobody any good. She simply invites the
hand of Time, which writes plenty of
wrinkles on her brow, around her eyes
and mouth, paints her face a yellow
and give a lack luster eye that no
artifice can brighten.
It is quite unnecessary to worry,
and it is a total waste of energy which
could be better employed in doing
something useful. The man who wrote,
(it must have been a.man) "it is not
work, but worry, that kills" knew
something. He had a wife or a sister,
or a cousin or an aunt who worried
,him_by_the_hour_anU_so killed him by
inches. That is the worst of a wSrry7"
Ing woman. She not only worries, but
she worries you.
You' know a worrying woman the
moment you see her. Her character Is
written in her face in wrinkles which
you would think nothing short of a
miracle would,obliterate.
Downright ugliness is a heavy price
to bave to pay for the possession of a
bad habit, but there it is. And not
only dbes worry directly influence the
complexion for evil; its more remote
effects are no less potent In robbing
the face of the peach bloom tints which
"are the admiration of the poet, the
painter and tho general public. Worry
affects the entire nervous system and;
through It'the liver and organs of digestion and the heart. The things a
woman thinks have more than any-,
thing else- the power to make or mar
her beauty, so let ber beware of worrying over much lest sho lose tho
greatest of alj the gifts.

The Kitchen.
Thp kitchen, which is, after all, the
housewife's throne room, should be as
comfortable and as cheerful as possible. "A high stool is a convenience. The
chair with the short legs is restful. A
rocking chair, if the kitchen is large
enough, Is not so sinful as our grandmothers would have thought. It the
tables are too high or too low,- have
them raised or lowered. Many" backaches will be saved. Remember this
point when the stove or range IS set in
place. X
Erect Shoulders.
One way to correct round shoulders
In a schoolboy or girl is:to teach them
to sleep qn: a/'very/stiffly stuffed hair
head but an Inch above the levol of the
rest of the body. A soft bed and plenty of easy pillows are the' prime
causes of crooked shoulders amqng our
American children. To sleep with the
head very high Is a mistake, and.a soft
bed Is not by any means the most beneficial one.���American Oueen.

How to maintain good dirt roads at  nominal expense was explained recently to the highway officials and representative farmers of the principal bad  roads section of Iowa. D. Ward King,  who Is a Missouri, farmer and good  roads agitator, assumed leadership of  an educational campaign in that State  and made hundreds of enthusiastic  converts to the practical method of  road maintenance which he advocates,  and his work is found to result in a  marked betterment of Iowa's very bad  roads, says the Breeder's Gazette.  Mr. King's system of road Improv-  ment Is simple and Inexpensive. Good  dirt roads can be secured and maintained by the use of a simple device  which he calls the split log drag. It  can be made of a log about eight feet  long and twelve Inches in diameter,  split ln the middle, or of two pieces  of sawed oak two inches by eight  Inches.  Any kind Of light timber is suitable.  Box elder ls sometimes used. Dry red  elm is excellent. Although not essential, a log should be selected that will,  split fairly straight. After it is split'  in two, giving two fla/t faced slabs,  bore three two Inch holes in each slab  annK wunauvgeeung wet, writes E. G.

There is something quite pathetic in  the thought that in the centenary year  of NeUon's glorious victory at Trafalgar some of the last survivors of the  "wooden walls," which for so many  centuries were Britannia's bulwarks,  should be ih the hands of the ship-  breakers.  It ls not many months since several  of these gallant old vessels were sold  by auction at Chatham as so much firewood���������ships that were once the pride  and boast of the British navy. There  was the Forte, which sailed the seas  long before the oldest admiral of today was cradled; also the Belle Isle,  which, after being a target for shells  innumerable in mimic warfare, was  seni-to the bottom of Portsmouth harbor by a torpedo, and was floated agalr\,  only to end her days under the auctioneer's hammer. But the queenliest  of all these veterans was the Duke of  Wellington, which with the Hannibal,  has just been broken up into firewood  on the Thames, near Charlton.  Half a century ago there was no fairer ship on all the seas than this Duke  of Wellington. She was built at Pembroke and launched fifty-two years ago  on the very day that Wellington died.  She was a ship to marvel at in her  youth, with her 6,071 tons and her grim  tiers of guns, 131 in all. It was told at  the time of her launching that her  mainmast had cost no less than ������500,  her foremast ������ 375, and her mizzen mast  ������100 and that to build her seventy-six  acres of forest had been stripped of  3,000 oaks, each tree a good two centuries old.  So stately and impressive was this  fine ship that she was placed first In  the procession that sailed so proudly  past Queen Victoria in the Spithead  review of 1853, and in the days of the  Crimea she was chosen to carry Admiral Napier's flag.  And  this is  the  end  of her proud  | career.  Well might Ruskin exclaim as  he looked at Turner's picture of an  "otKSF  a place for tho driver to stand:and at  the' same time strengthening the slab.  Use a chain or strong rope to afford  attachment for the doubletree. Supposing the drag to face west and assuming that a chain ls used, fasten one  end of the chain to or around the left  hand outside connecting brace, letting  the chain pass over the top of the slab.  If attached to the face of the slab near  the left hand end the chain would interfere with the movement of dirt toward that end of the drag. The drag  Is run at an angle of about 5 degrees,  bo that dirt can bo thrown toward one  elds. The, other end of the chain may  be fastened to the face of the front  slab near where the right hand connecting piece comes through, as at that  point of the drag the presence of the  chain would not cut any figure with  tho movement of earth toward ,the other end.. Yet it would probably be better to secure the chain to tho drag ln  the samo way at each end, If the ends  of the chain pass over the top edge,of  the front slab and aro fastened ono to  eaoh outside cross ploco tho draft will  bo slightly downward, thereby holding  tho bottom edge of the front slab closer  to the ground.  Mr. King recommends shoeing about  threo foot of the bottom edge (right  hand side) of tho front slab, A piece  of Iron or steel of the right length,  about throe Inchos wide and a half inch  thick, with ono edge sharp or bovoled,  can bo used for tho purpose, ]fut It  on securely, letting tho sharp edge  project about an Inch bolow tho edge  of the slab. This sharp iron shoo will  enable tho draff bottor to Bhavo tho aur-  faco and cut down tho hard ridges  which are usually mot with on roads  that havo not boon kept smooth. A  good.drag will coBt from almost nothing to 12,80, depondtng on tho material  and construction, and last flvo or ten  years. Anybody oan mako one.  Tho work can bo done Jn tho winter  whon tho surface is a llttlo soft, but In  tho spring, summer and autumn tho  treatment Is more oftootlvo. Use the  drag soon after each hard rain while  tho surface dirt is In a puddled condition. The drag will Rmoar the soft  mud ovor tho top of tho road bed ln a  sort of layer. With sunshino, wind and  travel this layer will become hard.  Another dragging will put on anothor  layer to make tho road ntlll harder,  smoother and more Imporvlous to rain.  In a year or two a hide or shield Is  put on tho road that you oan hardly  tour up with a pick, Eaoh dragging  thickens and solidifies this eovorlng,  A few dragging* will make thn road*  smooth and Improve thom wonderful*  iy, Luc it uku������ a tew you.��������� at intelligent dragging to put thom in tiptop  condition.

The grand old Temeralrc  had been sold for ������5,530T-less, it is  said, than the copper in her had cost,  and barely a twentieth of what had  been spent on her building and equipment.  One can scarcely realize In these  days of Ironclads and steam with what  pride these stately wooden ships of  several generations ago were regarded.  It is true that a llne-of-battle ship in  Nelson's days, magnificent vessel  though she was, with moro than a  hundred guns aboard, cost barely a  tenth of the price of a fully-equipped,  first-class battleship ' of our day, but  sho carried ln her tlhibers the growth  of a hundred years or more of good  British oak.  Nothing less than fifty acres of forest would supply the necessary tlmbor  to build her, and a couple of hundred  shipwrights were kept at work for  twelvo months beforo she was ready for  launching. Then, too, with hor towering bulk, her flvo docks, her Iron tooth  showing at a hundred portholes, her  lofty masts and enormous spread of  sails, she was a picture such as no  man-of-war of to-day convoys.  Apart from sentimental reasons, It  was, perhaps, Just as' well that iron  cams to supersede oak, for the time  was rapidly approaching when the  supply of timber would fall. The British forest wero almost strlppod early  in the last contury. In Surroy tn a  single year, 15,000 trees wore cut down,  the price of oak doubld ln fifteen yoars,  and It began to soom as lf shipbuilding  must como to an ond.  And now that thero are fow left of  theBO grand old wooden ships, and  these few aro rapidly being broken up,  ono cannot resist a fading of regret  at the closing of a glorious ohaptor in  tht national hUtory of Groat Britain.  STARS''AT CI-OSE RANGE,  Cainaldaf8'New Observatory At the Ot-  tawa Experimental Farm Equipped  With a Giant Telescqpa.  The Government astronomers have  been lately translated from dingy  offices in Ottawa to a brand new dome-  topped '-".ding on the Government  f^T���������. -me Intention Is that the Experimental Farm is to be the Greenwich of Canada A new fifteen-  Inch telescope has been erected with  which to help on the good work.  Things happen to the sun; things  happen on the earth. The scientist  believes that there is a direct relationship between these things, but he  has yet to find It. It is the missing  Hnk In meteorology. When the astronomer finds out what comes between the monkey and the man In the  solar system he will, so he declares,  have done the greatest of all great  things for the material welfare of mortal man. Canada's new telescope may  yet be the means to thiB end  This telescope cost a thousand dollars an Inch, when you com* to consider it as a "15-inch" telescope, which  means that the lens���������the Important  part of the Instrument���������ls 15 Inches In  diameter. The wholo cost was a little  over $15,000. The telescope Is only a  baby compared with the big spyglasses of the Lick and Yerkes observatories, but it is a powerful magnifier  all the same. It is as perfect as the  ago has learned to make it, and is big  enough for the work It has to do. A  telescope may be too large. ��������� Some of  the big ones of the scientific world���������  86 Inches and over���������cannot be used to  their full capacity except for part of  the year. The explanation is that they  magnify the atmospheric waves, and  so make troubU for themselves.  Prof. King's new telescope is 19 feet  long. The mechanical part was built  in Cleveland, the birthplace of the  Lick and Yerkes machines. The glass  was ground In Alleghenny, Pa.  Down below the foundation of the  observatory walls there begins the  sub-structure of a huge pier which  goes right up iti to the dome and ends  with an iron colums. On top of the  Iron column Is the telescope. The  whole mechanism of this huge magnifier is of the finest and most delicate  kind You can swing the telescope up  or down, or any way at all with one  hand and the turn of a little wheel,  and is moves without the faintest  squeak. A photographic apparatus is  attached to it, and the whole thing  turns on an axis, which turns on an-  _o.ther_ pointing due north and    south.  wun  seven   ua.ru,  inducting  me   rtiuei  of Ladysmith with Lord Dundonald.

Suggestive of the sword cane ls the  dagger made for those who work in  diving suits.  Most divers find a keen bladed knife  essential in working below the surface,  especially where sharks and other  dangerous fish   are numerous.  Since it is not frequently necessary  to make use of the knife, It ls kept In  a sheath made especially for this purpose, in which the hilt screws into the  sheath, making a watertight joint.  In this way the dagger is preserved  from rust, and yet a couple of turns  will free the twelve inch blade and  provide the diver with a weapon of  offence or defence.  These daggers are just beginning  to come into use in hunting camps,  where, in addition to the waterproof  feature, the screw prevents the knife  being drawn from its sheath by the  underbrush.  Proved  Him  a   Liar.  When Thurlow was Lord Chancellor  of England he was much at outs with  the Bishop of London. The latter was  visited one day by a clergyman who  sought appointment to a fat living then  vacant. He wanted a letter of recommendation to Lord Thurlow, but the  bishop said such a letter was likely to  do more harm than good. Nevertheless  he wrote it. When ThurlSW read the  missive he said: "Well, as that scoundrel the Bishop of London has Introduced you, you won't get the living."  "So the bishop said, my lord," was the  meek reply. "Did the bishop say so?"  roared Thurlow. "Then I'll prove him  a���������liar, for you shall have the living,"  And he was as good as his word.

Questions regarding tlie study of law "  were sent out recently w many lawyers of Illinois by ti\ei /University (of  Illinois and elicited l.dOO'Vepliea. /tfrpm  these it appears that the days of studying Jaw In a lawyer's office have passed away.   Very few of the offices have-  any law students at all.   Many of the-  ablest lawyers expressed the opinion  that study in a law office is an absolute  waste of energy.   Nearly all the successful law firms declared that they  had no time to,> devote to young men  who desired to study law and tbat such  founsr mon w������ro a nuisance tn tha office.   The only young man they could  use at all was one who had already  passed his examination for the state'  bar and who was willing to work for  nothing for a year or two In order to  get the experience which comes from  a large office! Out of the 1,000 replies  only seven favored preparation for the  bar in a lawyer's office.  Another striking result of this Investigation is found in the answers to the  questions as to the proper degree of  preliminary education a student should  have before entering the law school. A  majority of the whole number urged  that every one taking up the study of  the law should complete a full college;  course. Of the others a majority were-  in favor of at least two years in college. There was a practical unanimity that the completion of a four years'  high school course was the absolute  minimum which was at all acceptable.  It was the general opinion that, having once entered the law school, the  young man should give his entire time-  to the work of the school and not attempt to combine it with work in a'  lawyer's office or, indeed, work in any  other place unless that was absolutely  necessary to pay expenses. One lawyer declared that it was a poor school  that could not keep a student busy all  the time, and If a boy found himself in  such a school he ought to leave It for  bhe which could keep him busy.

You get to Canada's telescope by  climbing a succession of stairways.  When you find yourself in the dome  the chances are that you will be surprised. You will see the roof suddenly come apart. Or you may discover the whole dome to be moving round.  Your suspicions will be set at rest  when you see that Bomebody is pulling  a rope, that there are wheels everywhere, and Indications of ball bearings.  Tha dome, you will be told, is made on  a huge steel frame, which came from  Cleveland.  Beforo vory long you will find that  there ls something else that moves.  You ascend a wooden structure like  miniature baseball bleachers, preparatory to a look through the teloscope.  You find that the bleaohera aro moving. The thing Is on wheels. Moreover, the contrivances are such that  tho astronomer can alt up aloft and  move his telescope and hts perch  around without coming down.  All this is necessary because there  aro different stars In different places  ���������there are three hundred thousand  ln tho catalogue of the astronomy���������  and every star moves. Even the so-  called fixed stars move, though ln olr-  cles of their own. The astronomer  alms his telestope at a star and settles  himself to watch. The toloscopo follows tho star. It Is all down to a fine  point. There Is a dock in the mo-  chanlsm of the toloscopo. The clock  knows all about the star and keqps  the telesoopo tn the right path.

The results are said to be satisfactory.  Uses of Ammonia.  The use of ammonia in tho household  are many. In cleaning of any kind it  should be used In the proportion of  ono tablespoonful to a quart of water.  It makes the water softer than rain  water.

Alfalfa should be cut when oot moro  ������han one-tenth of the pianta have come  In bloom. Cut at "this early stage, thc  yield ot hay for the season will be  jnu;ch greater than if the alfalfa is cut.  pear piaturity, and every pouud of hzy  Becured yrill be worth more for feed.  At "fEeTCapaas experimentTslation a  jBtrip through a field of alfalfa was ,.;.^t  ^rhen one-tenth wns, iu bloom; another  ptrip was cut after full, bloom had  passed. The strip cut early was nearly  ready tp cut the second t\me wheu  that cut after full bloom was being  harvested the flrst time. The strip cut  early grew vigorously through the sou-  son and made three cuttings and .,,  jgood aftermath. The Jtrlp cut after  full bloom gave a low yield the firs:;  .cutting and did not grow sufficiently  to yield a good second cutting. Early*  cuttings seem to invigorate the plant.  Tho late cutting of the first crop  eeems to Injure the plant more thnn at  any other time, and we havo found It  profitable to cut alfalfa the first time  as soou as one-tenth wan lu bloom, even  ��������� though the weather was bad and we  (knew thot the crop would spoil In curbing, The Increased yield from succeeding cuttings over thai out late much  more than make:", up for the loss of tlie  Cir.t crop,  EsjsentlsU to Dairy Sncceas.,  Let me first note some of the methods practiced by our most progressive  dairy farmers; then wo may more cosily understand the progress made by  the  average   dairyman,   says  a   New  York correspondent of Hoard's Dairy- ���������  mnn.   These are now well established  facts: To make dairying the most prof  Itable there must be a herd o* well  bred cows���������cows that have been tn-ed  to make a maximum amount of butter  fat from  the  food  consumed.    They  must be fed a balanced and saceu-eiit  ration, and aa much as possible of tliiSi  uuist be grown on the farm in the form  of corn, grasses and thc .differed* kf:ids  -ot���������grains���������and~45oiiia!^,c!ipjjSv���������iuud_.i2_|,  Sale  of Crown  Granted   Mineral   Claims for Unpaid Taxes in  Como*  Assessment   District.  -0���������  winter the cows must be kept in 'wa?ui,  light and well ventilated stables. These  ore now recognized as the three main  essentials to success in progressive  dairy farming and are, to restate in a  word, good cows, good rations and comfort for the cows.  The Jfavsn Sesmrntor.  If'a fanner has ten cows aad ls using  the old fashioned milk puns and his  herd averages throe pounds of butter  per 100 pouuda o? milk, it is-safe to assume that with nny of (he standard  makes of cream separators hts yield  would be Increased by about one-quarter or more.

BY LAURA JEAN LIBBEY |  Author of "Miss MicJdleton's Lover," "A Forbidden Mafrf-   |  age," ���������* Daisy Brooks,'' Et������u, Etc 8  oi  t A faco that was* flushing an'd palin-r  In girlish confusion most pitifully  under her scrutinizing gaze.  A graceful head, dainty as a flow-  "er, running over the soft rings of  curling dark hair, and a pair of eyes  that were made to win the hearts of  men at the first glance.'  For one desperate moment the wild  thought occurred to Helena to beat  an ignominious retreat.  The divans, the mirrors, the tall,  rose-filled vases, and the statuary  seemed whirling around her, but with  a mighty effort she controlled herself.  And with a startled cry, like a  bird who was suddenly awakened  from Its nest, Helena crossed tho  room and threw herself into the arms  of the beautiful woman who had  sworn to crush her most relentless  enemy. At the first glance Vivian  saw that Frederick Castleton was  right���������_he was as beautiful as a  poet's dream.  "Welcome to Cameron Hall, Ollie,"  she said, gayly, holding the young  ;girl off at arm's-length aftar the first  ! brief caress and studying the pretty  face with breathless interest. "You  have come upon us so suddenly," she  went on, "that we are quite taken  ;by surprise, and can not find words  to express the fullness of our great  joy."  "This is my second wife, my dear,  nnd your step-mother," explained  Mr. Cameron, fondly laying his hand  on his young wife's shoulder.  Vivian flushed hotly with intense  annoyance, and in that moment she  fairly hated the well-meaning old  gentleman for his thoutrhtless remark  for, glancing over to the pidno, her  glance met Frederick Castleton's bent  quizzically upon her.   rather go away again, n.de'ea "1  would!" faltered Helena. "Don't let  them describe me in the papers, Oh,  no, no, no!"  Vivian Cameron looked at her curiously. All society ladies make it a  study how they can get their names  and costumes into the fashionable  journals���������thoy courted notoriety;  why did this young girl avoid it  in such terror?  "I must ferret that secret out,"  thought Vivian.  "Your papa will want to give a  groat ball to celebrate this memorable occasion," laughed Vivian. "You  must give him his own way, Helena. I always do," she added, softly; "yet, to your father, my Willi is  law, as you will readily see."  And with this parting shot Vivian  quitted the boudoir.  "Oh, I am sorry, sorry that I  came!" sobbed Heleba, starting wildly to her feet, the full force of her  perilous position drifting across her  dazed brain. "Oh, if I could go back  to New York and Mark," she murmured. Suddenly she thought of Miss  Kirkwood and the ruined pink silk  dress. "No, no, it is too late to go  back now," she cried; "the doors of  tho past are closed against me."  CHAPTER VI.  Gilbert Cameron's face flushed with  .pleasure as he watched the meeting  between his young wife and his beautiful daughter. The mask of smiles  on Vivian's fair face completely deceived the fond old millionaire. He  mi*.-** h������r white arms clasped lovinpdy  about tho shrinking girlish figure,  and the golden head bent caressingly  over tho curly brown one.  "I am glad they are friends," he  murmured, with a sigh of relief.  Vivian laughed in her smooth,  6weet way.  "Do you think you will liko me,  Ollie?!' sho asked, dropping ono soft,  ringed hand on the darkly, beautiful  curly head beside her.  "I think I shall liko you very  much, Mrs. Camoron," sho answered,  with straightforward, girlish simplicity; "but you look so vory young  it will seem hard to call you mamma."  Tho old millionaire started backward in dismay, loo'king from the ono  to tho other; Vivian had turned deadly palo, thon a dull red crept into her  rounded chocks; sho could scarcely  restrain tho impulse of dashing tho  girl from her with hor clinched, jeweled hands.  An awkward pause was about to  onsuo, but Frederick Castleton camo  gallantly to tho rescue; "You could  moro oaslly pass for twin-sisters, if  Mrs. Camoron's hair and oyes woro  dark," ho said, carelessly, nevortho-  lcsa quito amused at tho frankness  of one and tho dlscoiufituro of tho  othor.  Tho millionaire's fnco had grown a  deep rod, and ho Hatred Fredorick a  grateful look from hiirnfhcst oyes.  "I am not quito as old as your  mothor wus," rottirnod Vivian,  othlly, as sho drow ITolona toward a  portrait ovor tho mantel.  "Why, how strango," she commenced, turning to tho squire "Your  daughtor resembles neithor hor mothor nor yoursolf,"  Holona sunk bnck nn hor sent deadly palo and  ill-concoalod fright.  "Perhaps sho resembles her relatives," returned Fredorick,  "I presume so," said Vivian, caro-  lossly.  An hour later Vivl'an was In her  boudoir assisting Holona to dross  for dlnnor,  Tho shabby, tnded silk, dingy with  ngo, was out of tho question for Gilbert Cameron's daughtor. i  ViHnn ������'in ntillfml for nppwtr-  nnoo'fl sake, to roho Holona in ono  of hor own drosses until a suitable  wardrobe could lio mado up for hor.  Helena shrunk from taking tho  dead girl's namo, pleading a* an sx-  duHn slio had boen mllod Helena    so  IwliU.      bhu halt  iuiUiu:o  lo  lu������u     lit**  name, and proforred bolng called by  it.  "Thore will bo quito a sonsatlfm  whon tho roporters nt thn daily papers, hoar of this strange romance"  declared Vivian. "You wftl find  yourwilf     tnturi'diwod nntl  described  Hho iwver tlntahrd tho ttcntonce.  Ht4nm had spruhg to hor foot with  a bond cry.  "Oh. 4on*t lot thom do It!" oho  cried, faftily. ������i������d with tncom*-  tig frtofat. "I do not like  sensations.        I       wotiJd   .    mtifh  Left to herself, Helena looked curiously about her.  Never in all her life had she beheld  such luxury as surrounded her; ah,  how foolish she would be to leave it  all!  "No, I cannot go back to the old  life," she sighed. "I must stay here  at any cost. I shall receive no reporters, and the world will never  know that wealth tempted me to  such a deception, that I am Helena  ���������H^^h-cliff-and-not���������poor���������������llie���������Gain-  eron, into whose inheritance I have  come."  Was it indeed cruel to deceive the  fond old gentleman who had received  her so joyously, showering a worid  of tender kisses upon her white,  shrinking face, believing her to be  his long-lost  Ollie?  Her heart went out to him as she  remembered how he had wept over  hor.  And then sho blushed a burning  crimson as she thought of the other  one, tall, fair and stately, who had  lookod the welcome so eloquently  from his dark-blue eyes, as he bent  his handsomo head for an Instant  over hor trembling hand.  And sho remembered Mr. Cameron  had presented him as "Frederick  Castleton, my nephew."  How his blue eyos haunted her!  and sho told herself, with a deep  sigh, as sho laid hor head wearily  back on her laco pillow, that sho  might havo carod moro for poor Murk  if ho had been like him.  Midnight! Sho heard tho vibration  of the groat clock in tho corridor bolow dio softly away on the summer  air, yet sleep would not visit Helena's eyos.  Thoy wandered to tho door, and as  thoy rested thero it swung noiselessly  back on its hinges, and a white-rob-  od form glided swiftly Into tho room  and up to tho bedside with noiseless  footsteps,  For ono awful moment that words  aro powcrloss to -describe, Holona  gawd in spocchloss horror���������tho ono  dread nf hnr Uio had boon ronllzod,  tho spirit of tho doad girl had comol  uuck to naunt her; and In that moment tho whito-robud liguru bundu  noaror hor, nnd In a volco that  sounds liko nothing human hisses in  an awful whisper:  "llowaro, girl, in crossing my  threshold, you have souled your  doom."  The darkness of doath closed In  around beautiful, guilty, faulty Holona, and a wild p'iorclng cry rang  out upon tho stillness of tlio night.  A cry that startlod tho Bleeping In-  nmtos liko an olei'trio shock.  And llult'iia sprung from hor couch  and durtml toward tho opon window,  wailing pltoously, "1 will go away,  I���������" Sho reeled dizzily forward,  then foil ln-ttvlly to the* lloor, faco  downward, in a doath-liko swoon.  Vivian Cameron, for It was sho,  ���������',-.there'. )-,--r --h.it.-. r,,\ ,-������������������. ni.nut hnr  with a low rrv nf nurprtut*.  "I did not think tlio llttlo fool  was awake," sho muttered, "and I  boliova sho imiht havo hoard what I  was Baying, I ought to havo resisted tho impulKo thut bade mo stop  and approach hor Duiisiuo us i twin  passing through hor room to my  own. Sho has ivouaod tho house!"  sho told horself, in horror, as sho  hoard iwiftly approaching footsteps.  In a momont u daring thought oc-  currod to hor, and quick ns thought  she acted upon it; grasping Helena's  purso, which iny upon the buroau,  Sho scattered its contents about her  on tlio floor, (lung the pockot book  out Qf the window and dashed quickly to hor own apartment* Just a*  Mr. Cameron appeared at listeria's  dojr.  )   The next oor&inc the aU^r������   at  robbery was the principal tnelne  conversation.  Vivian actually trembled. But her  surprise grew as- she noticed that  Helena was strangely reticent upon  the subject, and she mentally concluded Helena had not recognized  her.  Helena never remembered how the  money came to be lying around her,  but concluded that she must have  grasped her purse ih her mad attempt  at flight. How could she tell them  that it was a vision of Ollie Cameron who had come back to haunt  her that had terrified her so.  The days flew by on golden wings  and each day brought Fredrick Castleton to Cameron Hall, and each  day Helena was drifting further  away from the dark past and further  away from poor Mark's adoring  love. ^  But in ber dreams Mark's wistful  face rose up before her, with tho  words on his lips: "Never bo false to  mo, Helena, for if you were, I should  go mad and kill myself, perhaps both  of us."  And she would awake from these  dreams with a cold perspiration on  her brow; and the fear haunted her  that the young artist would keep  his word, and the one prayer of her  life was that Mark might never find  her.  At last thc day of tlie grand ball  arrived, the ball which was to celebrate Helena's home-coming, and introduce the lovely debutante into  fashionable Baltimore society, ,  And as Helena bent her lovely head  over the rare roses-Frederick had  sent her to wear, she remembered  with a cold thrill of horror that this  was the day on which Mark would  return to New York; and this was  the day that she was to have been  Mark's bride.  "I will try to forget it," she cried,  desperately. "I will forget, and be  happy."  ���������At that moment Mark Forrester  was rapidly nearing New York City  and his thoughts were of Helena.  Oh, how slowly the train seemed  to creep along to this1 light-hearted,  impulsive young lover.  His wedding day and Helena's, he  told himself, as he watched the golden sunshine that held out glorious  promises for him.  One short hour more and he would  clasp Helena in his arms���������-to be parted from her nevermore.  Tears  came  to his honest eyes  as  he told himself how he would work  -f or���������h is-beau ti f ul_dar.ling ;_toU_f or_her_.  early and late.  And he pictured to himself how surprised she would be when he told her  that he had invested the money he  had been saving for years in a perfect love of a little cottage on the  Jersey City Heights.  How surprised both Prudence and  Helena would bo when he informed  them that a trim little servant was  at that moment preparing a wedding banquet, to which they would  immediately repair as soon as the  ceremony was over.  Poor Mark, let him dream while he  may; tho cruel awakening that is to  break his honest heart and make him  almost curs? the very name of woman is coming all Coo soon.  Tho train reached the depot just as  the sun was waning, and Mark at  once drove to his studio.  Ho tried to think what she was  doing, how sho would welcome him,  and how he would clasp his arms  passionately about hor and strain hia  darling to his throbbing breast.  It was just a brilliant rosy daydream, as every lovor dreams ovor  upon his wedding-day. "Had sho  missed him much, and was sho expecting him?" ho wondered.  Tho cab stopped boforo tho door,  and Mark fairly flew up tho stairs  two stops at a timo.  Tho door stood open, nnd w'th a  throbbing heart Mark poepod in,  half oxpocting to soo his darling, but  sho was not thero,  Prudonco, his sistor, was standing  boforo his favorito picture, Her arms  woro folded ovor her breast and a  hard sot look swept ovor hor grim  face as ho gazed at hor.  In a     moment Mark was by h  side, and     when tho first grootli;  wero ovor ho looked eagerly   aro  for Helena.  "My coy littlo darling,'\ hk murmured, "why is sho not horo, wjjwol-  como mo?" ^  Prudence started abruptly and  flushed under his anxious inquiring  oyos, Jjkt,  ���������  Sho put her hnndB.fQn^Ija dark hair,  Just as sho upod t<uv$''Wien he was  a littlo lnd and tra^omo to her  with his boyish sdjwtos,  "Mark," she ealflpoftly, wiping a  suspicious moisting from hor oyos  with a corner of her black silk apron,  "Jlolena is not hero, I havo not soon  her since tho day you left, but oa  tho following day sho sent this lottcr  for you."  " ' i . I   ���������     ���������  * : rnr\     tin        t*ttX  TYtiB"1vo \r\ bin Vmndu  "Holona hns not boon hero with  you, Prudonco?" ho artlculatod,  hoarsely, liko'"a man dazed by a  sudden blow, his hands closing over  tho whlto envolopo.  Prudonco turned and hurrtuuiy lull  tho room; no human oyos must be  upon him whon ho roads thoso cruel  linos which sho know*ho must road,  Tho sun was shining upon tho totter  as ho opened it, oponod and road tho  words that nearly drove him mad  with grid.  "Poor Mark," the letter ran,  "whon this roaches you 1 hha.ll Uu (ui  away. H Is my ono prayer that you  rmiv lo&m to forgot mo. I Wftl  frankly tell^you why I have put your  lovo from me, Mark. Wealth has bron  my evil genius, nnd ho* luml me  from rov . Jt I wasfled yon,  Mark,  1 must give" up tne Drimant' mture  that is held out to me. Oh! pity me,  Mark, I am not strong enough to  resist it. I do not deserve your  forgiveness, for I am leaving you  with the full consciousness of the  wrong I am doing you.  "Good-bye, Mark, forget and forgive her who has gone out of your  life forever, for we shall never meet  again.  "Yours sorrowfully,  ���������'"Helena."  No cry came from Mark's white  lips. Iiis face grew haggard and  stern, and the light died from his  eyes.  Blind with pain, he raised his face  to the sunlight with imprecations  loud and deep upon the faithlessness  of women.  Then with a wild laugh, that  startled even himself, he cried out  hoarsely; "I have staked my life,  my love, iny hope upon a girl's  heart, and I have lost."  Ho thought of the wedding banquet that the tidy servant was preparing at that moment in the littlo  cottage on the Jersey City Heights.  The cozy cage Was ready, but his  bright-winged bird had flown, The  feast was ready, but the lovely  young bride-elect had fled from him,  deserted him, and left him a heartbroken man.  "I will never forgive her!" he  cried.  He flung his brush from him; and  the paintings that had been the  dearest dreams of his ambition, he,  dashed from him with a shaking  hand.  "Good-bye, life, love and fame," he  muttered, catching his breath hard,  "I will leave all and go out in the  world and search for the woman who  has broken my heart and deserted  me. No other lover shall kiss her  lips���������I swear it. I will search tho  world through until I find her;  search by night and day. And when  we meet, Helena���������for meet we shall  as surely as the blue sky bonds above  us���������may heaven pity me, I can not  answer for what will happen then."  CHAPTER VII.  Hall  The grand ball at Cameron  was a great success.  Vivian Cameron was looking her  best in rose-pink clouded over with  foamy lace, the Cameron diamonds  clasped about her white throat and  gleaming on her plump, rounded  arms.  "Helena shall not outshine me tonight," she muttered, exultantly, as  ,Bha���������noted���������_tho__.admiring glances that  greeted her from all sides.  She glanced anxiously around, Helens had not made her appearance. She  bit her crimson lips "with intense  bitterness as she saw Frederick Castleton standing near the doorway,  ���������watching and waiting. She well  knew for whom.  Lovely j'oung girls passed him by,  smiling their sweetest and challenging him with their bright roguish  eyes, but he looked anxiously past  thom. all towards the door.  "Not waltzing, Fred, my boy!" exclaimed a cheery voice at his elbow.  "Why, my dear fellow, I am literally  astonished, and such bewitching  young girls gazing longingly at  you."  And turning quickly around Frederick saw his chum and most inti-  mato friend, Herbert llenwick, standing besido him.  "I am anxious to behold this paragon of beauty you havo been tolling  mo about, Frederick," ho said, lightly. "Pray present'ma."  Fredorick Castleton oponod his lips  to answer, but at that moment,  through tho groen arches of an open  doorway near by, camo a vision of  girlish loveliness, robed in silvery  white, with water lilies twined in  hor dark hair and on her breast,  loaning on tho arm of Squire Cameron.  Fredorick flushed. It was no wonder tho warm color flooded chook and  brow, as ho noticed with a thrill of  dollght that Holona carrlod tho  white flowers ho had sont her, and  lio quite forgot to answer his friend  for a moment.  "Wltnt aro you gazing at so Intently?!' laughed IlorVrt, and at  Lthat moment his oyes f^ll upon tho  yoly \young girl loaning upon  ,ulro vainoron's arm. Ho caught  oiio glanafc .of thoso liquid dnrk oyes,  and ho folfylllto y. man dazed, ho  could not tell why.  "Thoro is Miss Camoron���������is sho not  charming?" cried Fredorick, his fair,  handsomo face breaking Into a  glow of Btnllos.  "Como, Herbert, and I will prosont  you to tho queon'of 'the ball," ho continued, and both of tho young mon  crossed  tho room together.  Both woro so utterly unconscious of  the infliionco that she would oxorriHo  ovor thoir Uvoh���������of tho tragody that  lay boforo thom, of tho fact that from  tills night thoir lives would novor bo  the samo again, And thoro was something almost    pitiful in their ignor-  Ui.l-L.

But he would not hnvo mid that  a fow hours later.

Helena looked up ns the two hand'  some young men drew near. Fred"  erick Castleton's face was flushed,-  and Herbert Renwick had grown*  strangely pale.  "Miss Helena Cameron, allow me  to present my friend, Mr. Renwick,"  said Frederick, nervously. ." ' '  Helena raised her glorious dark  eyes and smiled, and the dimples  deepened around her lovely rosebud  mouth, and that innocent, thoughtless smile disturbed Frederick Castleton.  Both gentlemen gazed for one instant into the bewitching girlish  face, and then they looked at each-  other as though they would weigh  each other's strength in the battle  of hearts.  And from that moment these two,  who had been in tho past such stanch  friends, were bitter enemies. They  looked in each other's eyes, and each-  knew that the other would try to-  win her if he could.fiand both felt  that there would be a bitter struggle between them.  While Frederick waited for an opportunity to nsk Helena to waltz  with him his friend seized the opportunity and asked it.  Again those dark, luminous eyes  were raised to Herbert Renwick's  face with a smile that made him  swear to himself that he would win  her in spite of all the world of men.  "I have just one waltz left," she  said; "I will be pleased to givo it to  you."  A look of gratified pleasure swept  over his dark face. That was at  least one step gained over his rival.  He had not yet been five minutes  in Helena's presence, yet he already  called the friend of a life-time his  rival.  Before Frederick could regain his  scattered senses and ask for at least  a quadrille���������anything���������the musio  struck up and Herbert Renwick was  leading her away, and for an instant the two rivals fairly glared at.  each other.  '���������' Ah, how. happy Helena was! How  her heart beat at the murmur of admiration that followed her as she  floated down that brilliant flower-  flanked room to the measure of the  thrilling music.  Herbert Eenwick's dark, handsome  face bent over her, proud in its triumph.  "I. shall     never forget" this Waltz,  Jliss Cameron," he said.    "There are  "eventw  in"~~lifB~"tRirtf~ilHpF5������!Finr"iS57"  strongly we are never able to forget  them; I shall always hereafter associate you with the music of a Waltz,  in memory of this one."  "Events in lifo which we are never  able to forget." How tho words  struck like a doath knoll upon beautiful, guilty Helena Hcathcliff's ears  ���������Helena, who had stolen into the  dead girl's homo and fortune.  And in that moment Mark's faco  roso up before her as they rode together on the way to the depot  through the sunlightod park, and slio  could hear Mark's voico saying, in  an awful whisper, tho words ho had  said to her then when ho had kissed  her lips and sho had promised to be  Mark's bride: "Never bo false to  mo, Helona; for if you woro I should  go inad and kill myself���������perhaps  both of us."  Even thon, as sho whirled through  tho brilliantly lighted ball-room, in  his far-off homo Mark was standing  alono, with bared head, undor tho  starlight, with ono prayer on his  lips, that ho might find his beautiful, false lovo. Ho never stopped to  question hlmsolf ns to what might  happen after that. If over a man  had gono mad for lovo, that man  was poor Mark.  Why should Mark's face and voice  como to hor now?  Sho grow palo to tho lips, and Herbert Renwick smiled dollghtedly. He  thought it was his pretty compliment that had palod thoso lovely  cheeks In girlish confusion.  Unablo to onduro his friend's triumph, Frederick Castloton rushed  out of tho ball-room away from tho  lights and tho music out into tho  cool, silent moonlighted grounds.

Not very many y������. ��*sa, tn a
country church in the west of England, th�� clergyman, preaching with
great earnestness for home missions,
came down from the pulpit, well content with the effect his eloquence had
produced on the congregation. Suddenly the disturbing thought struck
him that he had, inade no arrangements for the collection, which was
sure to be a liberal one on this occasion. As he passed through the chancel he whispered hurriedly to a choir
boy; "Go into the vestry, take the
plate you will find on the table, hand
it round to the congregation, and then
bring it back to me." The boy da-
parted on his errand, and the minister took his place within the communion rails and gave out the offertory
hymn. The last words of this had
scarcely died away when the boy
stood before him, a plate of biscuits
in his hand 'and an apologetic expression on his chubby face. "Please,
sir," he explained In an audible voice,
"I've handed them all to everybody,
and nobody will have any."

Medicines of the old fashioned kind
will sometimes relieve the symptoms
of disease, though they can never
touch the disease Itself���they neve/
cure. Ordinary medicines leave behind them indigestion, constipation,
biliousness and headache; purgatives
leave the patients feverish and weakened. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, on
the other hand, do direct good to the
body, blood and nerves. They fill the
veins with new, rich, red blood; they
brace the nerves; they drive out disease oy going right to the root of the
trouble In the blood. They always do
good���they cannot possibly do harm.
Mrs. Geo. Henley, Boxgrove, Ont.,
says:���"It Is with thanks that I tell
you that Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have
cured me after my doctor had said I
could not be cured. I suffered from
an almost constant fluttering of the
heart, and sometimes severe pains.
The least exertion would leave me
breathless and tired out. My apnetlte
was poor and my head ached nearly
all the time. I had lost ail ambition
to do any work, and felt very hopeless.
I had taken a great deal of medicine
without any benefit, until i was advised to.try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
Those li'ave made a remarkable
change in my condition, and I am feeling better than I have done for
years. I gladly give my experience
in the hope that It will benefit others."
Now Dr. Williams' Pink Pills build
up strength as they did In Mrs. Henley's case in just one way���they actually make new blood. That Is all
they do, but they do it well. They
don't act on the bowels, they don't
bother with mere symptoms. They go
right to the root of the trouble In the
blood. That ls why these pills cure
anaemia, headache, heart palpitation,
indigestion, kidney trouble, rheumatism, lumbago, neuralgia, St. Vitus
danpe, paralysis, general weakness
and the special ailments of growing
girls and women. But you must have

great diamonds, but, nevertheless, I
pitied him sincerely, for he was
