Tho formal ceremony of publication was postponed  until November 7, when Sir 0. Bruce,  > Jovernor of Mauritius;, arrived. Mr.  'Cl. B.

The Seychelles are among the hundred or more Islands scattered over  *he Indian Ocean, wliich have hitherto boon dependencies of Mauritius.  'They are between the parallels of S.  int. 4 dep. and r> deg., 934 miles  from Mauritius, COO from Madaeas-  R'ar. nnd 970 from. Zanzibar.

Coughs and colds usually arise  from sudden, changes of temperature.  5t may be a change of weather, pass-  '3ng from a warmer to a colder room  -or exposure to a draught.  It is not always possible to prevent exposure 'n those ways, but it  is possible to prevent ser.ifais results  by using Br. '��������� Chaise's Syrup of Lln-  ������eod and Turpentine.  Thi������ great medicine haa saved  thousands of lives by preventing  p'licumonin, consumption and other  forms of lung trouble,       ' ���������  It is mother's favorite romody for  croup, bronchitis, whooping cough,  and tha coughs and colds to which  children are subject,. Being pleasant  to the taste, tho litUcones delight  'to'take it.

Ermine takes the lead in furs for full  dress wear upon wraps, coats of all  lengths, the trimming of hats, as well  as those separate fur set additions, as  muffs, capes and stoles. The quantity  of fur used in such long, wide stoles, as  well as upon large muffs, makes the  cost in expensive furs beyond all former ermine wear. Miniver shares the  prestige of ermine ln a less degree, but  will no doubt rise In favor, since white  fur is so much in demand.  Red has much chic this season not  only in many of the novelty suitings,  but in surface cloth itself, broken by  white and black, all black or all white  flecks. Then come empiecements, pipings, straps or tabs of red velvet  or cloth to assist iu emphasizing  this color, which is a most becoming  feature. Red zibellne Is conspicuous  for a walking suft, but it has won favor  in that line and will bo worn with  black fox furs and black beaver hats  and plumes. Picturesque it is beyond  question and for a driving suit holds its  best place;.  New silky velveteens carry the day.  Mingled with smooth or shaggy cloths  or without any such additions such  suits promise no end of smartness.  This new velveteen is so pliable that  tlie skirts plait admirably. All silk  velvets have their appointed full dress  elegance, and'emplacements of fur and  passementerie ornaments will combine  to make their smartest trimming effects, together with chenille and silk  short fringes and passementerie drops.  Besides all this variety are the���������lovely;-  laces in black and white, in cream and  pearl tones, which are used for velvet  coats. '..'���������'.���������.���������  As an example of velveteen and  cloth is a lovely myrtle green two  piece suit. A broad squirrel stole and  huge muff, both lined with white satin,  insure the extremely modish air of this  suit. *  . -*.-J  Apropos of stoles, the cut shows a  beautiful stole bon of blue lynx with a  cluster of tails at the waist line and  across tlie ends and a large, soft muff  Thw hnvo. boon 170 lives lost   00  r,u������ Aljw thin y<i������r.  8TOM4 AND BIUTVti U0AS.  lo match.

"Something broko  when that last bump came, and we  may be tore iu the road for hours before help comes, and I expect to see  papa whiz around the corner nay minute. It's dreadful."  "Don't cry, sweetheart," said Ralph.  "You'll make your nose red, Daisy,"  Added Mrs. Lambert merrily, "and then  what a moist, forlorn little bride you'll  be. .Stop petting her, Italph, and talk  Honse. Can't you fix it?"  Carewe shook his head despairingly.  They were on the New York and  Boston pike. Llere aud there an apple  tree lay in the Bunllght like a great  pink and white puffbull.' The grassy  footpath along the pike was splashed  with bright gold where dandelions and  buttercups elbowed each other, and  through the bars of a pasture on thc  right a couple of red and white calves  were watching them with lazy interest  Mrs. Lambert drew in a deep breath of  appreciation.  "Isn't it lovely?" she said. "Daisy,  eit up aud look at your wedding day.  I see a little white spire over tbe top  of those hazel bushes, Ralph."  Carewe climbed to the top of the  stone wall for a survey.  "By Jove, Aunt Ruth, you're right!"  be called gayly. "Come on, sweetheart"  Daisy flushed rosily as the eager,  boyish arms Jilted her to the ground,  und she cast a- half frightened glance  down the smooth, dusty road. Any  minute at all tlie judge might come.  He was sure to follow, and tliey wer������  only a few miles from home.  Mrs. Lambert was looking at h������r  green and gold chatelaine watch.  "You ought to bo buck here lis half  ������n hour," she said, her blue eyes as full  of excitement and happiness as Daisy's.  "I'm not a bit afraid to stay here and  fnee the judge. You two children run  for the white spire, and heaven bless  you both."   ^AunWRuth.-did-aMy���������oneu-aYer���������tell.  ���������you yon were an angel?" exclaimed  lialph, giving her hand a clasp that  parted the seams of her ueat tan  gloves.

If you should happen to  nun across a village blacksmith und  enn think of earthly things you might  tell him there is work for h/tn un thc  pike."  She sank hack among Ihe cushions  of tbe auto with a sigh of shoor content nnd watched thein run cross lots  Band in hand, trampling the dandelions nnd buttercups. They were such  precious children, and it was the first  elopement she had ever shared! As for  the judge?

Lnnjbert pointed out dainty,  gloved hand in the direction of tae  white spire.  "Right ��������� over there, judge." she said  sweetly. "And Ralph is witb her. They  have gone to be married."  Thero was a dead silence except for  the clear, sweet song of a bluebird bidden somewhere among the blossoms.  Mrs, Lambert stole a look at the iudge.  lie was staring, down tbe narrow vista  of the pike. Tliere was the same clear  cut, purposeful profile arid thick, wavy  hair that had belonged to Jack Norton.  The years had only added silver to the  hair aud strength to the profile. He  turned ills bead, and their eyes met  Rome electric spark of thought amnity,  long dead, seemed to flash to life. The  color','slowly rose-in-Mrs.- Lambert's  cheek. The judge's voice*was almost  gentle when he epoke at last.  "Is it quite fair to me? She ls all 1  have, nutb>  "But she Iovc3 him so." Mrs. Lambert loaned'forward eagerly, with tender, pleading eyes. "Ralph is a good  boy. You don't.-know how they love  each other."  Tbe judge's ;mouth relaxed.- Mrs.  Lambert was a charming counsel for  the defense.  "You aided and abfetlcd them, Ruth'."  "All the time," confessed Mrs. Lambert happily. Her voice was lower as  she added hesitatingly,, "It did not  siiem right that they i should suffer  through any animosity which you bear  to me."  The judge was already standing in  the road beside ber, and in bis eyes  was the earnestness that had been in  Jack Norton's.  "I know what you mean," he said.  "But it is not that There is no bitterness, Ruth; only"���������-he paused and  took courage from the bluebird���������"only  regret for me.  Daisy is a child"���������  "She is eighteen," said Mrs. Lambert.  "And I thought the boy a trifle overbold and precipitate."  "It is a good quality."  The judge looked up with a sudden  thought.  'Torhaps if I had possessed a little  of those qualities years ago I might  have mot wiih his success."  Sho smiled down at bim through eyes  that sparkled with tears.  "Perhaps you might have.

"Mrs. Lambert and he havo gone on  down the pike together." said the  chauffeur. .'They left word to you to  take tlsis auto and go where you  pleased, but not to follow them."  The bridal pair looked in each other's eyes and smiled.  "Lot's go borne," said Daisy.

BERT FOSTER  &       CopusitJkl, 1303, by T. C. McClure  One .of the most peculiar cases that;  ever came under my notice, said Captain Spink, was the K. and L. express  robbery, which occurred, when i was  u member of the old steamboat squad.  My work consisted mostly In Investigating river piracies and keeping a j  sharp eye upon that small but exceedingly active fraternity of smuggler!  who operate in New York harbor. .1  The K. and L. Express company had  an office on Long wharf, at the foqt of ;  Jones street, and, doing a foreign business only, as they did, their storage  rooms were on the wharf too. |  The storage shed was a two story  building of brick.    The office; whicli  adjoined it, was at the extreme end of���������  the;'wbir'f., It was built of wood'and  corrugated iron.  Craft were passing the end of the  wharf all night long. There waa a ferry slip near by. Every vessel at tbe '  dock had its keeper, and the property  of the company itself was watched by  an old and trusted watchman. Besides, the��������� gates of tlie wharf were  locked at 7. o'clock in the evening, and  if a lighter had left the place it would  have been spied by one of the police  patrol boats which ply up and down  the river all night long.  Yet that shanty was broken iuto, and  out of it was removed a safe weighing  a couple of tons and containing money  packets and valuables to an amount  that made the .entire downtown police  department wake up with a decided  shock.  The K. and L. people were wild, and  well thoy yrnight be. The chief took  hold of chjS matter himself, aud I was  one of the men selected to go down to  the scene of the robbery with him.  And I tell you frankly I was sorry to  be put on' tho job, for as soon as I  heard the circumstances surrounding  this break it looked to.me like a blank  wall that would be mighty hard either  to climb over or dig through.-  The first report we.got was that tii?  two story oliice had been blown-half to  pieces by the force of the charge of  dynamite whicli the robbers had used  to try to force the safe. And yet nobody along the water front had heard  tho explosion!  That was bad enough for a beginning. And wben we got to the wharf  we learned that, despite the wreck of  the building, the burglars had evidently been unablo to "force the safe and  had finally carried it away with tbem,  The-.corneij.pl' thc structure was toni  away, and as soon as tbe chief learned  that tlie .safe, in question had stood  right there where the floor was gaping  and tho walls blown out he declared it  to be Ida belief that the force of the  charge used to open the anfo had  blown the Iron box clean through the  wall and that It was at the bottom or  tho river. Oe was so sure of this that  ho sent over to the Navigation company's offices for a diver to go down  and poke about In the mud near the  dock.  It waa between 7 and 8 o'clock In the  morning when we hnd first been Informed of the mystery, so the Job wua  not many hours old. Tha company's  watchman was already In custody and  waa aeared bine. It scorned thnt he  had beeu sitting up daytimes with bis  ���������lek child for tho bottor port of a week,  and he had just keeled ovor on this  night and slept llko a log In the ntor*  ajre building���������waa sleeping, In fact,  whon the longshoremen ctimt to work,  .He awore the robbery eould not lmv������  bean committed before midnight. Lie  bad mado Ida regular round* wilJI aft-  or that hour,  thon I xanda tbe dlaeornry by talking to the ilrnt clerk who had arrived  en the scene that tho door of tha ome*  building had hcon locked the aunie aa  usual, nor hnd thero bean a window  unfastened. Tlioroforo, added to the  rout of tlio mystery, waa tha quoHtlon,  llow had the robhera entered 11m ofllco  nnd mounted to th������ .second lloor, whera  the anf������ wa* kepi? But thn chief was  kii con^donl tliat the anfo really had  not been stolen, only blown through  xhe wall and had fallen Into tho wator,  Unit hi������ would do nothing until h������ iiinJ  hoard the report of tho diver,  Mut J looked over tho wreck again,  The force which had carried tho sitf*  iiivuy   iuumi   huve   been   u'reniHuUe.  I  Oii.U.a  wvl't) hui.'ihluu, 000 d< ,���������>!������   M������'i u  mans of wreckage. I picked up In ���������  eorner a piece of what I supposed to he  ajpart of 'a picture frame, for one Hide  o^'the allele was heavily gilded.  .'���������'Wintre ������ uiu rent ot Hie piuuuef" i  amknd tho ltend clerk, and I allowed  hhn the bit of glided wood.  "Why, thero wasn't a picture on the  wnll," he declared. "\ don't know  where that camo from."  Now. that wa* 11 little thli-/. hut 't  wna too odd to lie overlooked. I wt  m> ii.iiiil .,l work upiiu thut hi'tiUn  piece of wood.  An It wna not a picture fram* and  tliere had booxx nothing In tuv oliice  that was gilded, I could uot nndprstand  how it got there. As I stood in the-  wrecked room and looked through the  ragged hole in the wai! which gave me  a clear view of the river- my eyes  rested upon a big vessel being towed in  to her dock.  It was a clear day. and the sun flashed from her brass work and trimmings <  and glittered upon lu^ massive figurehead. And the sight sent an illuminating ray into the fog of my mind.  The diver had arrived with a truck  load of paraphernalia, bnt I took a trip,  nlopg the docks, going aboard each vo������-  Ml ln the neighborhood and interviewing as many of the watchmen or sailors who had been in the vicinity during tlie night as I could (ind.  1 learned several things. First, therv  had been a heavy fog during the evening and for at least two hours after  midnight. 'Thou the wind changed ancl  the sun had risen clearly.  It was quite true that nobody seemed  to have heard such an explosion aa  must have occurred when the safe of  the K. and L. company was blown  through the oflice wall, lint one watchman on a cattle ship two slips from the .  express dock had heard a noise between 2:,and 3 o'clock wbicb he had not  attributed to the mystery of the lost  safe, however.  ': ''' 'Twero no explosion, officer," he  told me. "That I'll be willin' to swear  to."  "What did it sound like?" I asked.  "Sure, *twa8 more like a heap 0' lumber, fallin' down. I thought 'twas In  the lumber yard on tbe next block."  "Was anything going on out iu the  river at the time?"  "Sure, iv'rything was quiet. I'd gons  below to light me pipe at the cook's  lantern when tbe noise came to me."  I telephoned tho 6hip news office  down on the Battery, and soon 1 had,  jotted down tho list of the'vessels thaV  had gono to sea since G o'clock the pre-;  vious evening. Among them was the-  Rotterdam of thc Bremen and New-  York' line, and, although she should;  have sailed earlier, I learned by calling up tbe office of the company that;  owing to tbe fog, she had not started'  for the Narrows in charge of the tug;  Charles I>. Goodwin until after midnight  j By this time it was mldforenoon, an<������;  the early editions of the, afternoon pa?  pars were being cried ou the etreet  with elaborate accounts of the robbery  of the K. and L. safe. One enterprising.  Bhcet-had-evcn-' 'fa ked'^a-picture-of-t-b.*-  divcr going ovor the edge of thc docK  ' into the river lo hunt for the lost safe-  Nevertheless I believed that,that bit  of gilded wood I carried around with  mo was the clew (othe true explanation, so 1 called up the towing company that owned tbe Charles B. Goodwin and discovered where tbe tug  would be likely to land upon her return from her trip outside witb tho  Rotterdam, I ay*is on the wharf wbeo  the tug came In. '  I went aboard and saw the captains  "Mister," I mid, "I've como,to bcair-  about it.   Have you got the safe?"  "What safe?" asked he, looking:  Wise.  "The one your low happened to carry away from the I\. and L. dock thia.  morning," I said.  Then ho laughed and showed mo tho  safe and several bits of broken oflice  furniture, which he bad covered with  a tarpaulin up forward. And his story  was Interesting, as I supposed it.would  be.  Whon the fog showed promise of lifting and tho wind changed the tug hn*  pulled tho Idg'steamship clear of hor;  dock and started down (dream. But  they kept Inshore, nnd just off tho If,  and Ji. Express company's dock n fer-  ryboat ran out and got In tho way o������  tho Goodwin.  "Wo had to alack our engines," said  tho oi>ptolii of the tug, "and of course  tlio towlino droppod. The tJdo awiing  tbo bow of tlio'Rotterdam plumb into  the end of tlio dock,  "By liokey, you tihould have wuui  ItJ Hor bowsprit punched a bole In  ono of tho express company's bulldlnga  liko n spear Jnlo a tat hog.

Sherlock Holmes, Jr., clutched his com*  panion's arm and sold:  "Do you see thnt man?"  "Yes. You mean the one with the mustache and goatee, don't you'/  , "Tbe same. He was awake all last  night with the toothache. His wife  wanted to put tho hot water bottle on  bis chock, but ho wouldn't huve it, And  she made bim promise- to have the thiutf  pulled today. His tooth isn't aching now,  though."  "Then he ie a Wend of yours, is he?  Why don't you 'ntrodaoe me?"  "A friend-of mine? Mo. I never saw  him until I called your Attention to him  a moment ago."  Tbo great -mnieur ���������-twelve's companion shied away iU������ a Jiafried woman  who sees vVu Ting Faag ooimg to ask  questions and vald:  "Sherlock, there's ao use talking. I've  got to quit associating with you. Tbls  uncanuy way you have ->f finding out all  about people who are strangers to you is  making me nervous. I'm afraid of you.  How do you know this, man had tbe  toothache all last nigbt?"\  "Look at his eyea. Tbey are all red.  They are tho eyos of a man who has  been robbed of sleep."  "Yes. I can see that bla eyos nro red,  Out porhaps he la a victim ot hay fever  or something of that kind."  "No.1 If you; could make deductions  you would know better. Look agniu.  You will see a dentist's sign in a window  across a street there."  "Yes; I see It."  "1 noticed that be gave a sudden start  when he happened to nee thnt a'sgn, and  half btoppod as if he thought of j*oinj,'  over. Then be put a baud up to bit:  cheek, assumed n cheerful look und hurried on. So you see his tooth has quit  ���������aching..'.!   "But how do you know he didn't have  1 n hut water bottle against his chuck last  ulgbt?"  i "Because be ban just bod n shave.   A  mau never win shaved the next tuornlnii  after letting bis throb rest upon a bot  wilier bottle.   Of course his wife wanted  \|.t bim to let her add to his misery by boil  ' * ing hia face, because that's always a wo  man's way Tn such u case of belug kind."  "Perhaps.   But 1 ihink you bave left  one   point   unexplained,    How   do   you  know the man bus a wife?"  "Oh, but you're dull. You're about the  poorest deductor I ever saw.

Copyright, 1003. by T. C. McClure      *  As Jack Vanston stepped through  the French window into the library at  Cresswell he made half -a motion io  torn back. Ladylove was crying hard.  hor head buried in her folded arms on  the big library table. Aunt Nan sat a  littlo way off, frowniug, yet beaming  over a letter. She it was wbo cany lit  night of Jack and called to liiru with little excited breaks between hor words:  "Don't*go away, Mr. Vanston. Vou  runsthelp me make this headstrong  child listen to reason."  "If she's badly iri need of discipline  suppose you let me take her for a walk  tliis morning?' Jack said, pulling a  rebellious curl that strayed down over  Ladylove's neck. "She told me yesterday she hated me."  Miss Nancy shook her head. "lean-  not permit the walk���������now." She put  soeh emphasis on the Mast'word Jack  could not choose but ask, "Why?"  "Oh,. Ja-ck!" Ladylove wailed, sitting.  up, bnt keeping her face hidden. "It's  because she wants me to marry that  fat, pig eyed Sandy Corlew. He���������he  has written to ber���������proposing���������fanpy  proposing that way"��������� -  "1 at least appreciate dear Sandy's  fine deference to your natural guardian," Miss Nancy said, sitting a  thought straighter and caressing the  letter with two fingers. Then, in answer to the question of Jack's eyes, She  went on: "Of course Ladylove will accept She earae here to establish her-  self-  "I didn't! It was just because I  thought you were lonely and wanted  me���������-and there were so many of us "at  home one; could well be spared." Ladylove broke iu, "and I bad rather go  'baCk to daddy and the pigs and the  chicken's and the children aud have  only calico frocks than marry this���������  this oaf."  Sbe was standing at the last word,  one little foot stamping hard as she  spoke. Jack dared not look straight nt  her���������if he did he knew he should catch  -her irrhis-armsand-comfort-her.���������T-ha t-  would ruin everything. It was clearly  a case for diplomacy. He said soothingly to Ladylove. "Hush, naughty  ghi!" Then to Aunt Nancy: "I agree  with you, Miss Cresswell. Sandy Corlew ia a fine, solid fellow, who may always be depended on to do the right  thing. But please let me see his letter  - -I'm not asking out of impertinent curiosity," as he saw denial in her face.  "Do believe tbat! I���������I have an idea���������  that���������that yon may not have understood quite what he meant."  Jack's breath came fast ns he said  it. IIo was by turns hot and cold. But  desperate eases require desperate audacities. Uo bent toward Miss Nancy  and half forcibly took the letter, read  it through twice, folded Jt, rond It  'again, tlien stood with It in his hand,  the model of ono Impelled to speak, yet  loath to oboy the Impulse. Miss Nancy,  watching him ns a bird watches n  snake, at last snapped out: "Well,  what's the matter?'* Do you find anything strange or startling In the fact  thnt a gentleman has the courage and  decency to say outright he wants to  marry my nlcco?'  J, "I do'not," Jack said; then In a constrained voice: "Hutr-forgivo mc, Miss  Nancy���������hha ho said so?  I think not."  "Why, bless imd savo us! Am you  crassy?" Miss Cresswell demanded,  "Not a bit of it!" Jack retorted stoutly. "Only tlmt you hnvo misunderstood.

Miss Cresswell said. "I'll write to  Sandy that I must consult my brother  and shall possibly give him a definite  answer at the end of a fortnight"  With that she clutched the letter and  vanished. The door had hardly shut  behind her when Jack had Ladylove  light in his arms and was sayinjj to  the curls on the top of her head: "Honey girl, would yen believe l sat up two  full nights concocting that epistle for  the good fat wltted Sandy? Even at  the last 1 was afraid he'd see tliruugn  it, although truly it is a document you  can read pretty well any wny yon  dioose. My heart was in my mouth  until Aunty Nun took the bait. Now  we two have plain sailing. .Before' the  fortnight is up we cau bo"���������  "What?" Ladylove asked breathlessly, freeing herself and standing in front  of him on tiptoe. lie caught both he?  hands and mado her a reverence, saying softly: "Happy and married. My  governor sailed for home three days  back. Just let hhn get here, aud I'll  show the gossips I'm no such bad  match for you as they have tried to  ma Zee me out Tie mesiui to slay away  ���������another year, but I cabled him how my  life's happiness was at stake. Oh, I  didn't doubt you. not the least. I  knew you'd be equal to love in a cot--  tage. It is onr friendly enemies I  wanted to confound."  "I'm Wondering." Ladylove said in  an almost awestruck whisper, "what  Aunt Nan's answer will be."  " "I hope yes, for Sandy's sake," Jack  said. "But one'ean never tell what is  going to happen when one man proposes as another man disposes."  .������       *       *       *       *       *       ���������  *      ' " * .0  The gossips of Creston were duly  confounded. Jack married Ladylove,  with Aunt Nan's beaming' approval, tlie  -.lay before Sandy Corlew's probation  ended. Such a. piece of news, of course,  ran through the country life wildfire.  Sandy heard it about sundown and.rodg  straight and hard to Cresswell. He  found Miss Cresswell upon the porch  there, a figure of graciously niature  womanhood, wonderfully enchanting,,  in .the.; softening dusk. In spite of feeling/that he had been fooled and played  with, Sandy could not speak even  gruffly when he asked. "What's all  this.cock and bull story of Ladylove  niiarryingH'hat-artist-chap-V-anston-aHd-  going off with him in a coach aud  four?'  "Oh, it's a real romance, a beautiful  one!" Miss Cresswell said, rising and  giving him her hand. She did it half  shyly, as though fearing it might be  detained.. It was a very white hand,  plump and dimpled as a baby's. Sandy  held it between both his own big  palms, while the owner of it ran on:  "You see It was lovo at first sight with  Jack and Ladylove, but I had to bo  cool to him because be was strange.  Not a soul we knew had ever hoard of  him. Ho understood and really acted  very well; waited until his fathor came  to spefck up for "bim. Thon there was  no withstanding thein. 1 bad to let  them marry offhand"���������  *'I think you might have at least  told me," Sandy said, half resentfully.  Miss Cresswell blushed���������blushed unmistakably and said: "TJrtfjpo were reasons against It. I-yon ������ee, I did not  quito know my own mind. Besides It  might have seemed to yon���������well, precipitate"-  "No such thing," Sandy said stoutly.  Even through his rtenseness ho began  to see how the laud lay. Ho began to  see, too, how ho could save his vanity  from smart. Miss Cresswell was rich  and hnndsomo and kind. At tlio worst  she could but refuso hhn.  "Now I am horo, toll mo yoo'll marry  im? Christmas," ho went on masterfully. Miss Cresswell said nothing, only  let; him lako her in Ids arm's.  Five minutes latin: sho whispered  softly: "You owe Jack pomothlng Sandy -until ho road your letter I thought  you wanted Ladylove."  "Oh, Jack la n wise guy!"

There is a charming story told of the  great French painter Corot Being  hospitable he frequently assembled his  friends to dinner, and a dish of haddock and potatoes, which everybody  hated, invariably followed the soup.  The friends... wbo thought Corot partial to the dish, always gavo it when  he dined with them. At last, in reply  to the painter's query, they admitted  that they detested the dish, but supposed he liked it.  Corot was grinning broadly, "My  dear fellow, if you only knew bow I  hate the sight of it even. But Adelc,  my cook, simply adores haddock and  potatoes. And it is no good���������I dare iiot  go against her wishes. It is ns much  as my'place is worth. Not for worlds  would my awe of Adele Induce me to  undeceive her as regards the value I  attach to this one particular article of  diet."

Such  loader haa not shown himself pronouncedly, although the namo of Armour & Co., , has begun to appear  quite prominently in the market gossip, ami that house i.s credited with  having accumulated a largo amount  of May wheat, and to some extent  they seem to havo tho market practically under control. Outside of  this the leading feature of the week's  tra<rir>g in the American markets is  the a'dvanoo of tho May delivery over  thc December. The ge.ieral situation  is still one of strength in the American domestic market, and easiness  and - indifference in the European  trade, consequent on plentiful supplies from other countries to ivuropc  and the prospect of the supply being  continued from the crops now hur-  vostiag in the southern hemisphere.

Speaking of his case Mr.Robertson says.:  "I had been troubled with Dropsy  and Rheumatism for five years. I am  now well and it is all owing to  Dodd's Kidney Pills. Before 1 startr  ed using them I could hardly put my  feet to tho floor they were swollen so  much from Dropsy. My arms used  to swell at times so that I could not  put my coat on.

It may be all pol-  iiical jangle, for the people of  Northern B.C. coast districts have  beard the heart warming spiel so  often and so long, that any railway  mention is looked at very much  askance. Still, these schemes n.iust  one day become a reality. The  natural expansion or population  will cause money to be expended in  these roads, and tbey will extend,  through not what was at one time  popularly supposed to be stretches  of wild barren country, bultlnough  areas of some of tho best grain pro  ducing and stock raking lands in  the wide Dominion. Who, a few  .years ago, would have been believed  had he stated that garden truck  vegetables unsurpassed the world  oyer, could hnve been produced in  the frigid Yukon country? .Yet  ���������this^is-an-aeeoniplished-fact-!���������Erast-*-  ward and southward from Dawron,  lie the grand fertile plains v.nd  rolling country of the Peace River,  and 60uth from that again, stretches  mile after mile of bunch grass  country, the soil the most productive to be found the world over,  right down to where the Chilcoten  country ends up against the coast  range, opposite Bute Inlet,  Few and scattered as yet', are the  Bet tiers in this immense area. The  new Transcontinental must traverse  this belt in some part. It matters  little where','for settlers will then  pour in and fill tho new country;  The terminus is also problematic.  Most people turn their eyes to Fort  Simpson, whioh may or may not be  tho terminus, for thero aro othor  places suitable, and speculation at  tho proflont time would bu idle.  That the Vancouver Island people  should agitate lor the extension,  and if possible, the connection of a  railway with the Mainland, gee*  without saying, Thero is room for  many eottlors along tho lino of  railway from Wellington to the  north end, and a road ox tendon  there would change tho country in  a short time from wild now to one  oi busy, thriving HeUJewont.
