Continued from last week.  mere is /protjauiy a grave mistake  here. I will tell them Helena is  dead,  and,  when 'they discover   who  "Tne coward! has Hed to avoid a  duel, but I will follow Herbert Renwick to  the ends of the. earth���������but  the  lady was   whom  he-accompanied* I will avenge the Castleton honor!"  The note dropped irom Prudence's  nerveless fingers as she eagerly  clutched the paper which had accompanied the note.  She had scarcely unfolded it ere a  startling caption in heavy, prominent black letters, met her eyes, and  she read aloud in a tremulous voice:  "Frederick Castleton, a handsome,  wealthy and accomplished young  American, was arrested last night,  while witnessing the new opera at  the Gaiety, on the charge of attempted murder of Mr. Herbert Renwick, who was found upon . the  street at midnight a fortnight since.  The case promises to be a prominent  one, owing to the high social position of the parties concerned, and  containing all thc flavor of a highly  sensational yet strangely pathetic  love romance. It appears that both  gentlemen aro suitors for the hand  of a "maiden fair," who was as capricious as she was beautiful. Young  Castloton, however, being an ardent  wooer, and quite handsome enough  to turn the head of any romantic  young girl, seemed to have won in  love's thrilling warfare, and Miss  Helena Heathcliff ��������� better known as  Helena Ollie Cameron, the long-lost  heiress of the late Squire Cameron of  Baltimore, Maryland���������was soon to '  become Mrs. Castleton. . The wedding-day was set, and the feast made  ready, but, at the eleventh hour, the  lovely bride-elect fled from her waiting bridegroom to the arms of the  rival lover. Vowing a terrible vengeance, . the baffled bridegroom pur-'  sued, in hot haste, the eloping couple.  Some two weeks ago young Castleton  traced his rival to the Hotel Emmery, this city, and immediately sent  a not challenging him to a duel.  Instead of accepting or answering the  -note,-^r.,-JRenwjck_hastiiy^elt__.the.  hotel, accompanied by a lady, for  parts unknown. The clerk of the  Hotel Emmery testifies to tlie remark made by young Castleton, as  this fact was made known to him:  T will track him to the ends of tho  earth and hunt him down, and I will  avenge the Castleton honor!' he said,  hotly, as he turned savagely oh his  heel and quitted the hotel. That  night Herbert Kenwick was found  upon the street at midnight, badly  injured, and in an unconscious con-'  'dition, from which he lias not rccovr  ;ered. His death is expected- hourly/,  and, in his comatose state, the lips.':  that could accuse and throw such  ��������� a strong light upon this dark affair,  nfay never onen.. , Young Mr. Castleton emphatically denies his guilt* i.pr  any knowledge of tlie sad, mysterious crime, 'rho evidence., however,  seems strongly against tho handsome prisonei', as lie con not account  for li is wju'ri'h bouts at'tho'hour and  day indicated above."  Tho last word" fell from Prudence  Forrester's Jips in a hoarse whimper,  but, they were scarcely utterdd-'cirb n  shrill) piercing scream echoed  through the room, and Vivian Cameron staggered blindly a step forward! ������������������-. thou fell at their feet in a  dead swoon.  At that moment a hurried footstep  sounded hi the corridor outside, and  Mark, whito uud haggard, stood on  thu threshold just rk Vivian was lifted to a tii van and help hastily summoned.  ".Murk!"     crlod      Miss    Forrester,  ncliing I owned him with out.strci.ch-  Murk!"  from hhn with a lur  ed bunds, "Oii,  lie waved her  rihle groan.  "I have rend  nu id,     Willi  lhe  mysler.V  it  all,    Murk,"    Him  darkening    brow,  "und  ul' how Helena.

As you'  love me, Mark, be merciful for I  lovo another as you love me. He is  tho oilier half of my soul!' Those  words maddened me, Prudence, and  I caught her in my arms with an  awful cry that echoed far out over  the moonlighted bay, and strained  her madly to my throbbing, tortured  heart. Then, Prudence, a voice  seemed to whisper-in the wash of  the waves and in the murmuring  breeze��������� 'Ah, if you could but die  with your darling clasped close to  your heart���������better a thousand times  death than to see her happy with  another, while you must go through  life with a broken heart in your  breast." I listened, Prudence, and  yielded to the tempter's voice."  CHAPTER XXXIII.  Mark Forrester's . hoarse voice  broke down completely, yot he went  on with his story, in an intense,  tremulous, whisper.  "Oh, Prudence, it was maddening  ���������seeing my darling kneeling there at  my feet, the moonlight drifting on  her false, beautiful face, pleading  with me to forget her and go away,  for she loved another a thousand  times more dearly than I loved her.  How strangely her piteous voice  blended with the sobbing of the sea.  Yet those words tortured . me to  madness,. 'Never)' I cried, springing  forward tb clasp her in my anus.  T would kill you first! You  promised to be mine in life, and  you shall be mine in death���������for we  shall die together!' I swear to you,  Prudence, I never meant what I said.  The words seemed to burn upon my  lips���������a 0vague hope flickering,, in my  ^hWTt^ha-tr^he-would-relen^jBu-li-in-  stead my words had only terrified my  darling. She looked up into my face  with a shrill scream, staggering  backward heedless of, the dark, flowing water. I tried to 'Warn'''her ' of  her deadly peril, but the, words died  in my throat. I sprung forward and  caught her,' on Iha^yery brink of, tho  pier; She' tried' t'o������"sti'iiggle! froiit^aly  clasp, and ��������� in tho struggle we ..^olli'  went over,-, tho pier ��������� down, down;  jin'to the,, black, ...geethiiig..1water. The  'force of the defporate 'plunge j broke  my hold, and a'huge wave bor#.my  darling from met- Jnyain'T shb'uled  madljy, and struck ou^ wildly to savV  her. For one moment only I saw the  beautiful white faco gassing at , me.  from tho ������������������waves, thon Hie dark ,' \ya-  'tor's closed ,:over . her beautiful head,,  a'nd I, Prudence, .feel���������,myself my darling's destroyer! My cruel words,  drove her to her death." , .,_ ���������'���������  Miss Forrester's faco had '.f$h\vn  white as marble. '���������.$<. :  "Dead!��������� Helena drowned I" " . sho  muttered,  with batod breath,   ;  ;..  But in this hour of darkest, peril,  her lovo did not fail him. IM 'was  still hor brother Mark���������tho 'idol of  her lonely heart, She would save  him from tho consequences of his mad  passion if a sister's lovn could do it,  "Yes, drowned," sobbed Mark ���������  "lying cold and white nt the bottom  of the fur-olT Chesapeake!" ,  His voice sunk to n low whisper.  "You boo, Prudence," he cried,  hoarsely, "the papers are all wrong,  H wish not Helena who was nocii at  the hotel which this Herbert Henwick quitted so hastily rather than  ineot his rival in a duel, Shall f tell  them all this, Prudence?" he nsked,  hoarsely��������� "shall I brand myself in,,  fore the world as niy ilurllng's  stroyei",' .1. mil siruugly templed  do this."  Prudence laid her onol hand on  so hastily from the Hotel Emmery  they may trace, through her, the perpetrator of the terrible crime."  In vain Prudence pleaded with him  in the most intense fright.  "Are you mad?" she exclaimed,  hoarsely. "Po you not know "that  you would be thrown ��������� into , prisons  when 'Frederick Castleton was releasee?? There is such'a thing as Cx-  tradition."  He recoiled from her in horror.  "I take my darling's life!" he  moaned. "I tried to save her, Prudence." .���������.*������������������  "Circumstantial evidence���������ay, your  own story of this sad affair would  convict you. You must come away,  Mark," she pleaded, "Your own safety demands that you shall let Frederick Castleton get out of this terrible affair the best way he can."  Still' Mark was resolute. Prayers  and entreaties fell upon deaf ears. If  this woman who accompanied Herbert Renwick could be traced he felt  suro the murderer would be brought  to light. Heaven help poor Mark!  If he had but known.  "Don't try to hold me back, Prudence," he cried, disengaging himself from her clinging clasp; "I must  repay the debt I owe Frederick Castleton���������a life for a life if need be."  The next moment he was gone.  With hurried steps Prudence flew  back to tho room in which. Eleanor  sat bending over  Vivian's couch.  True to her promise to Vivian, she  had not told Prudence of the startling discovery she had made at the  opera on the previous evening, ' a'nd  she met Prudence',s proposal to urge  Mark to quit London that day with  an eagerness tliat might have warned  her that there was "some, withheld  reason for it, ;��������� t .  "You must seek Mark quickly!"  panted Prudence; "a day, even an  hour, makes a great' difference in  men's lives."  Vivian, lying face downward on her  lace pillow, caught Miss Kirkwood's  low-spoken reply. ,.���������  "We will go away from London  before nightfall if I can' persuade  Mark."  A bitter cry broke from Vivian's  lips.  She sprung to her feet, her/ eyes  flashing.   ,  "Leave London if you choose,  Eleanor Kirkwood," she cried, ,"b���������u't  I stay here._ Do you think I 'wbjil'd  desert-Frederick whe.ri lie heeds: friends  most^"';-For.,shame to think even of  g"oing i'V- "  There was a stir in the crowded  room as Mark Forrester asked to ba  put on the stand.  . "Gentleman," he cried���������turning a  marble-white face to the judge and  jury, as-he .pointed to the wondering  hotel clerk, "this gentleman says  . Herbert Kenwick left the Hotel Emmery on that fatal day in company  with Helona Heathcliff���������known as  Helena Cameron-���������but I solemnly de-*  clare it is false. The woman was  not Helena���������for, two mouths ago,  Helena Heathcliff died!"  he  of  CHAPTER XXXIV.  Herbert Renwick was slowly convalescing, but the heavy blow upon  his head which he had suffered had  bereft him of his reason.  He had uttered but one articulate  word since they; found him lying  wounded and' unconscious upon the  street���������and that one word was���������  "Helena!"  His ph3'sicians had brought him  Into the court-room with tho vain  hope that, if Frederick Castleton, the  man accused of his would-be murder, was indeed guilty, the sight of  his face, brought suddenly boforo  him���������the glance of his eye���������the  sound of his voice, might bring his  reason back with a terrible shock,  and his first word would  either accuse the prisoner  or point out the way to the discovery of the real assassin, for the first  thing he would remember, with tlio  quick flash of returning reason,  would be the last thing that happened to him ere the fatal blow struck'  him senseless.  ' A hot flush mounted to Frederick  Castleton's face as his eyes fell- upon  Herbert Renwick's face',;as his physi-r  cians conducted him to a seat.  Rivals they had been���������yes, bitter  rivals ;��������� but Frederick Castleton  . would sooner have died than havo  been believed guilty of one dishonorable act toward him. A duel was  one. thing���������a stealthy blow dealt in  the dark quite another.   '������������������' _���������.: .'  Frederick had eagerly sought the  one ������������������ but shrunk in horror too deep  for words at the other.  It was horrible to look in those  dark, restless eyes ��������� in which no,  light of reason gleamed ������������������ and know  that he was accused of being the  cause of it. How dare they accuse  htm of such a dastardly crniie? Frederick faced the vast.throng of people  who had come,,to hckr'.tHe, trial fearlessly. .itf'b'udl.V'i,'"'Men looked    at him  ne sent-eery ireccrea it. Lire had lost  all charms for him now that Helena  was deurf������������������������= *���������������' hplievrri.  A prison cell stared him in the  face. Better death than that. lie  realized with his quick intuition,  when he saw the faces of the jury  turned away from him, as they filed  slowly back to their seats, what  their verdict would be. ,  He was innocent, yet on circumstantial evidence he would be convicted; he would be the first Castleton who had ever brought shame  upon a grand old name, and  thanked Heaven he was the last  his race.  "Gentlemen," said the judge, solemnly addressing the jury, "have you  found a verdict?"  Tho foreman roso slowly to hia  feet, facing tho judge. There was a  great hush in the vast assemblage.  Every one bent bi-eathlessly forward  to hear the words from his lipo.  Every ono anticipated what his answer must be.  "Your honor," replied the foreman,  sorrowfully, yet with terrible distinctness, "we, the jury, find tho  prisoner gu���������"  The terrible word was never  finished. There was a great  commotion at the door, a piercing  cry; then, through the wondering  crowd, a woman, heavily veiled and  all alone, pushed her way, crying  out in tones clear and ringing:  "Hold, your honor! I have something to say." .������������������'  ; "What  is  Fredericli.:,;Qast.lcitojivV to  ine, pray, my .doaiv Jyi  Eileanor,  should, I,  come/^iixed-'Up i ih' this' ��������� ,/dlsgPacefhl  affair?;:* ^'^   ' '.'������������������.���������-'���������'s'';.,f;j'- J'kiKSi" J ���������'.

Dying by inches���������that is the only  way to describe hundreds of bloodless  girls who are slipping slowly but surely from simple anaemia into a decline.  They drag themselves along with one  foot in the grave through those years  of youth that should be the happiest  in their, lives. And the whole trouble  lies in the blood. Bad blood is the  fountain-head of all the trouble that  afflicts woman from maturity to middle life. Bad blood causes all the  backaches and sideaches, all the paleness, breathlessness and despondency; all the heart palpitation, sickly  dizzy turns and deathly fainting  spells. From fainting spells to consumption is only a step. In nine  cases out of ten, consumption starts  from bloodlessness-^-and, the only  sure cure for bloodlessness is" Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills. They actually  make new, rich, bood, that brings, the  rosy-.glow~of-health_to-sallow_cheeks,,  and strength to every part of the  body. This has been proved in thousands of cases. Miss Frances Peach,  Welland, Ont., .says:���������"A couple,..of  y earss ago my condition of health was  very serious. Doctors said that I  had no blood���������that'it turned to water  I was unfit to do anything for months  and was little [more, than a living  skeleton. I had ho appetite; the  least exertion would leave me breathless, and I had frequent severe headaches. I was treated by several doctors, but they failed-to help me.and I  was completely discouraged. Then  I was urged to take Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills, and ln a few weeks found  my health improving, I used eight  boxes in all, and was by that time  again well and strong. I gained  twenty-two pounds in weight, and  never felt better in. my life."  What Dr. Williams' Pink Pink Pills  did for Miss Peach they can do for  every other weak and uillfng girl,.  They make new blod, and new blood  Thoy make now blood, and new blood  But you must be sure you have the  genuine pills with the full name  "Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale  People," printed on tho wrapper a-  touind each box,1.

Piles are small tumors, which form  at the opening of the rectum, and are  described as itching, bleeding or protruding, according to the symptom  that is most prominent.  The cause of greatest suffering is  the intense itching, which is an almost constant symptom, while the  greatest danger arises from loss of  blood. You can scarcely imagine one  in greater misery than the victim of  a severe case of piles.  By reason of its remarkably soothing effect Dr. Chase's Ointment brings  almost instant relief from the dreadful itching; It heals the ulcers, stops  the loss of blood, and makes a thorough cure of this obstinate and loathsome disease.  The old idea of a surgical operation  with all the accompanying pain, ex-  pense and risk, as the only curb for  piles, has given way before the extraordinary success of Dr. Chase's Ointment, which has demonstrated its  power in thousands of cases where  operations.have failed.  Mr. F. Morin, St. Eustache, Man.,  writes:���������"I suffered from piles for  nineteen years and though f tried a  great many remedies could not obtain  a cure. The doctor told me it was  necessary   to undergo an   operation.  "A friend advised me to try Dr.  Chase's Ointment aud though I had  no confidence in it I bought three  boxes and began to use it. One box  of this ointment made a thorough  cure. I gave what I had left to a  friend of mine who was nearly as bad  as I was and it made a perfect cure."  Do not make the mistake of dropping this treatment as - soon ' as the  itching stops. Make the cure lasting  by persistent use.

Sir Samuel Romilly was tbe first \vh������  endeavored to soften the rigor of thi  criminal law. In 1808 he passed a bill repealing the statute of Elizabeth, whirl  made larceny punishable hy death, ani  three or four years later he carried othet  bills of a similar nature. Indeed, it i������  chiefly owing to bis efforts tbat our criminal system la indebted for ita present  characteristics of humanity.  One or two of the former punishments  art m curious that it may be Interesting  to notice them. In the time of Henry  VIII. poisoning waa made treason, ang  the punishment waa to be boiled alive,  which was carried out in the case of John  Rous, who threw poison into a pot of  broth prepared for the bishop et Rochester's family. This, in common with many  store of Henry VIII.'a barbarous laws,  was repealed by Edward VI. The law  of retaliation was Introduced by statute  87, Edward III., as a punishment for  those who preferred malicious accusations. It did not answer, however, nnd  waa repealed after on* year's trial.  Crimes of an unnatural nature, such as a  wife killing her husband, a servant his  master, an ecclesiastic his superior, were  held petit treason, and a man was drawn  ���������nd banged and a woman drawn and  burned,  We see something of a similar nature  Ib the ancient Roman law that enacted  that the murderer of a parent should De  scourged and then tied up in a leather  aack with a dog, cock, viper and ape and  then thrown into the sea. Publiciis. Malleolus, who killed IiJb mother, was tha  flrst who Buffered this punishment in the  year ot Home t>52.  But this punishment has existed ia  modern Europe. Thus, in Spain, nt Jaen,  on March 1. 1832. a man, for murdering  hia daughter-in-law, after being placed  In a barrel with a cock, a snake, a monkey and a toad, was thrown into tbe  river.  Another common punishment, now long  obsolete, was disfigurement, as every on������  acquainted with the records of the star  chamber knows. Ears and noses wcr������  most frequently cut off, the excuse being  that the loss of them does not tend ta  weaken the culprit, whereas the loss cf  an arm or finger does. Early lnw always  advocated member for member, forgetting  that on a repetition of the offense tha  ���������unishment cannot be repeated.  Cwlttxrate T������e������.

It is pros.,  bable, therefore, that the region bet-'  Aveen Winnipeg and the Rocky Mountains will Avithin a generation or two  be inhabited by many millions of prosperous and energetic men and Avomen  mainly of Anglo-Saxon blood. What  part, will this great granary play in  the history of the British Empire  and of the world? asks the London  Times. The answer to this question  Is of even more importance to the  United States. ,  HELP FOR LITTLE ONES.  It is a recognized fact that babies  ���������and indeed all children���������need a medicine of their oavii. Medical men  know, too, that most baby medicines  do more harm than good ���������that most  of them contain poisonous opiates,  that drug children into quietness,  without curing their little ills. Baby's  OAvn Tablets is a modern medicine  for babies and young children, and is  sold under a guarantee to contain no  opiate or harmful drug. It cures sto-  nlach, bowel and teeth'Jng troubles,!  and by its natural, healthy action promotes sleep and repose. It makes  little ones well and keeps them Avell.  Mrs. yj. E. Ansell, Ayer's Flat, Que.,  says : "I would advise every mother  Avith sick or fretful children to use  Baby's Own Tabets, They are the  most satisfactory medicine I have  ever tried, and almost magical in their  effects."

Among the manifold advantages of  newspaper advertising over other  forms, there is one which the promoters of competing mediums of publicity can never hope to overcome.

"She knows 6he Is responsible to you  alone, and I am sure that whatever I  might say would not only fail to convince but would sacrifice her friendship, a thing which I am very anxious  to retain."  Margaret's entrance cut short further  conversation. Mrs. Clearwater excused  herself, and Carroll found himself  alone Avith the girl.  "Margaret, your mother has asked  me to perforin a very difficult task," he  began, "but"���������  She looked up at him, and there was  steel in her eyes.  ���������'I have declined her request.

";' Other minds and other  geniuses have planned and carried  out the cunning tactics that have resulted so auspiciously for, tbe glory  of the Empire, but Kaneko and his  associates in the financial administration of tbe country have made it all  possiblo.  Years ago���������long boforo the! busy  world knew aught of It���������Japan foresaw the quarrel that was being forced  upon her and began the systematic  preparation that, has since enabled  her to wrest victory from a power reputedly so great that all tho world  stood In awe of it. First of all, tha  Government and its advisors began  to look about for money. Tho finances  of the country were sound. It bad  novor boon found difficult to raise  monoy sufficient. for administrative  ! expenses, It was also a fact that the  Japanese administrative organization  was so offectlvo that thoso expenses  could bo cut down vory materially for  an Indefinite tlmo. Tho surplus could  bo used for extraordinary purposos���������  say war���������without at all crippling tho  Government. Tho monetary system  had been made ho sound that tbo ouly  caro that remained was to provldt  moans for the unusual In case It  should bappon.  That meant the marketing of tht  Empire's good financial standing. It  must bo taken to tho centro whoro  monoy avivs most abundant and ox-  changed in tho form of bonds. Tbero  was a great discussion among the  financial oxpevtn at Tokio ns to whoro  that dosirablo market might be found.  Most of thom wero in favor of seeking llnnnclnl banking in England. Japan had long boon a good customer of  the Elswlnk Shipbuilding company,  and iho English hnd tutted ,of tht  quality of tho Japaneso promiso to  pay and had found it extremely pala-  i table. It was nrgwod that the pros-  poctlvo Issue of bonds would soil rond-  i lly In London, Bnron Kaneko held the  i samo opinion, but ho declared his ho-  tlnf flint  H would bt* nrnOlnhtn tn fit-  | tempt to float Japan's bonds in tho  i United huttos as wuil. Jlo was con-  i vlnced the Hopublio was friendly to  Japan, and he wanted to socuro two  , friendly creditors instead of ono.  I     At first ho was overruled. Tho In-  aa security, and in spite of the wa*  they have been constantly on the increase. Japanese bonds are regarded?  as. gilt edged securities both in tho  United States^ and in England. Th������  last war loan, for $150,000,000, waa  divided between the two countries.  Before the day of issue the United!  States had subscribed for $525,000,000  worth of bonds and England for $750,-  000,000.

Here is a yam  about the; biggest gambing Mr. Farish  knew of' in that time pf big betting:  "A man of the name of Moore bad  been betting and lost over and over  sums aggregating several thousands off  dollars on the game of faro.   Finally*  as he turned to leave, the dealer askedL  'Are ypu through?'   Moore halted, hesitated,* then, turning and taking from  his pocket a key, held it up and saUJU '���������:  'I will bet you everything in my safe*..,  which this key unlocks, on the ten.*  'How much is in your safe?' inquired  the dealer.
