Mr. McKinnon says: "Until  last spring 1 had been alllicted with  a weak stomach, headaches and kidney troubles. At times 1 was completely prostrated and my sufferings  were of a most severe nature. At  'different times 1 was treated by no  less than seven doctors,, but from  iione of them did 1 gist more thAn  '���������temporary relief.. As time went .on  I .became hopeless of ever being well  again. Last spring a friend drew, my,  attention to Div Williams' Pink  Pills, and I decided to try this medicine. I had only taken four boxes  when I found a decided improvement  in my condition, and I continued using the pills until I had taken a  dozen boxes, when I was a cured  man. and the sufferings I had formerly endured were but a disagreeable memory.

Beware of Substitutes.  victor c. frMch.'���������  Editor and Proprietor of the Wetas-  kiwiri Times.  ���������  The Canadian West, it , has often  been said, is the Iind of opportunity.  This is true, not only of those portions of its vast area that have,' been  developed to a- comparative e'xtent,  and where the possession.of.a moderate amount of capital ensures returns much greater than is possible  in the older communities in the East,  but also, and to an even greater extent, in the large and naturally  wealthy districts being continually  opened up as the march of progress  and development, due to the'steady  inflow of population, goes 'on. These  developments are as remarkable for  their pornnniciK>e~"a������Tor~tlv",ivrrtvi>i"di-  ,ty, One season sees the prairie  grasses waving in the wind, and-far  On the mechanical side of his training,  few    men    are    better equipped  than Mr. Victor C. French, the editor ana proprietor of the Wetaskiwin  Tires.   Hois not yet thirty years of  age, having been born near Oshawa,  Qnt.,! in 1875.   He was educated   at  the Exeter schools,    completing   his  I'liucation   with   a   term   at    Toronto  ���������College..   Deciding to learn the printing  business,   he  was  apprenticed  to  John White & Son,    of    Che   Exeter  Times.     After   completing   his   term  ho accepted thc foremanship of    the  Mitchell  Recorder,   holding  the  position  I'oifc nearly three years,  when he  went   to   Toronto and obtained   employment  in  the  well-known  job  office oi the Monetary Times.   Later he  accepted  a  position  in   thc  office  of  McLean, Bros.,  the well-known  trade  journalists.     In 1898 he was offered  tho foremaniship of the  Clinton New  Era, one of- the best papers in western Ontario^   and   held    the position  till the, falT of 1901,  whon he came  west tof Alberta, , and    after   a   few  months of prospecting, decided to locate  at Wetaskiwin,  and  established  the Times.   As may be imagined from  the. success of his ventui-c, Mr. French  has never had occasion to regret the  call that bad������ him come west.  To any one who realizes and appreciates the rapid strides that all  parts of the 'West has made within  thc'past few years, it seems certain  that tho measure of success that has  attended Mr. French in his newspa-  ! per venture in the past will be surpassed by its future growth. The  district served- by the Calgary &  Edmonton line is one of the best in  the West, a!Wl Wetaskiwin is evidently destined to be one of the most  _imp_o_r_tant centres along thc line.

In reply lie uttered a sort of groan���������  a sad, solemn groan.  "You'll go,-wou't you?"  Another groan, ana still more sad and  solemn.  "Mr. Bowser, are you ill?" she asked  In sudden anxiety.       -^  "Not 111, woman," he answered like  a man who had been told that he must  have six teeth pulled on the morrow,  "but-but"���������  "But what?"  "But there will he no euchre for us  tonight. I have been thinking today.

"I don't see why you should got such  a flt on," remarked Mrs, Bowser ns  tliey got seated at the table.  "It Is no fit, woman," ho replied.  "It is. rather a case of conscience. We  have been too frivolous, too unsympathetic, too heedless of the sorrows of  others. Dny*by day wo huvo laughed  and rejoiced nntl made our own selfish  plans, but hnvo wo given a thought to  tho dark shadows hovering o'er tlio  hearthstones of pooplo around lis?"  Sho saw that ho had developed a now  fad, and ono Unit cotiM not bo settled  in a mlnuto, and alio -decided to!say  nothing further until dinner was over.  Mr. Bowser devoured u generous ploco  of porterhouse steak and groaned.

Everything  went to show that thero would bo a  bnd half hour when the silling room  Wit* reached, and tho cook caught Mrs.  HoWmI'Vh ,eyy ami gavo her to under,  ninml Unit she had her full sympathies.     . ,.,  ,  Mr. BafrM' did not Immediately  break out after the ilulsh of dinner,  but walked to and fra and shook Ills  head and drew long breaths that tapered off llko dying gusts.  "The Greens will bo vory much disappointed," Mrs, Bowser finally oh-  nerved, dreading the Inevitable, but yet  wishing to lmvo It over with ns soon  as possible.  "Woman, luivo you no heart?" de-  QinnuiU Mr. Bowser as lio mined on  lier. "Down ou tlio noxt block despair  may bo enshrouding n family, inn! .vet  you nro nil agog to spend tlio evening  as lf human tear* wero aa cheap us  water!"  "I don't know that anything In par-  tlculnr has happened down on tho next  block," slio retorted. "If mlsfortuno  has come to nny one, near or fur.

"Mrs. Bowser. I  flon't believe that you woura snea ������  tear If you heard that five innocent little children had been run over and  mangled beyond recognition by a street  car."  "If I shed a hundred tears would  thoir parents know it? In this world  each of us must bear his own sorrows  and .misfortunes.

For biz���������for biz���������gee-whiz���������gee-whiz.  "That's what he roared out. Mr.  Bowser, and I was expecting to be a  widow every few-minutes, and yet you  ask''me to sit here and weep because  some one we never heard of has met  with sorrow or liilsfortune."  "Woman, I wouldn't have that heart  of yours for air the money in America," he said, ns he hesitated between  kicking nt thc cat. who was taking it  all In. or pounding on the table with  his fist. "No wonder you have made  fourteen different attempts "to- assassinate mo since oui'. marriage. No  wonder that sorrowing men. weeping  women nnd grieving children cast one  glance at this house and then shudder and hurry along, it wasn't a week  ago. as 1 got off the car. that a wild  eyed tramp, fleeing for his life, dashed  past me with terror depicted on every  line of bis-countenance. You had been  threatening his life, no doubt, instead  of giving him words of sympathy."  "Yes, 1 remember." she quietly remarked. "He called for a bite to eat.  and while the cook was getting it  ready for him he stole a bottle of  claret off the sideboard and took a  skate. He wasn't flying for his life,  but for his claret." v  "I'll never believe It���������never on this  earth. If I was in sorrow and misfortune, one look Into your cold and unfeeling face would chill 'me to the  marrow. All this long, long day I  -eould-hardlj'-keep-the-tears-from-my  eyes as I thought of the scores and  ������������������ scores'around.'us who" sit .walling and  grieving, and yet you���������you"���������  "I haven't shed any.-tears: or, seen  any call for it." Should a grieving  woman or a weeping child call here tonight, however"���������  "You'd break 'their,V necks .with a  crowbar���������you know you would.!" ho  shouted, as he stamped about and  emotion colored his nose clear down  to the tip. "You sit here and .wait  for  sorrow  to  come  to you, .while  "While you do the same thing."  "By thunder, woman, but you won't  (ling that in my face a second time.  1 wns Intending to go out anyhow, but  now nothing can stop nie. Yes',; I will  take a walk out and find and alleviate  sorrow, aud let despairing Immunity  see that lt has at least one friend In  this selfish world."  Mrs. Bowser made no objections,  although ho rather hoped she would,  and lie walked slowly down the hull  and donned his overcoat-and hat ami  paused out into (lie night.

The smallest Iron in the  laundry would not work Into the slender points. Besides, the heat on the  linen before washing might yellow It.

It was apparent that their visit to  the art museum had nothing to do with  art. It was equally plain that their,  feeling for each other could not be described as platonlc. Bettlna, to be  sure, affected unconsciousness as she  sauntered through the lofty rooms  where the marble figures flashed coldly Into view, exciting one to a new lovo  of mere flesh and blood, but all the  time she knew that to the man at her  side she was queen of the world; also  it was evident enough from the look of  discontent on the man's face that her  loyal subject was not altogether happy.  "Your place is right here on a pedestal along with the other statues." was  what he was saying to her. "The trouble with you is. Betty, that you won't  listen to your heart. I might as well  plead with this marble figure!"  The queen, with well feigned reluctance, brought her glance back from  the headless "Victory" that seemed  forever on the point of flight to the  youth nt her side, who was glowering  at her with an odd mixture of rebellion and adoration in his face.  "Really, Steve," she replied at last,  "I'm ashamed of you. It's not my  heart that's at fault: it's your purse.  You know that perfectly well" And,  with her chin at an angle beautifully  eloquent of injured innocence, she pretended to study the sculptured figures  about her. In reality she watched bim  ���������felt him straining at his chains���������with  an exultant sense of the charm of being queen.  Her words and glance made him savage. It was hard enough to bear her  delay in putting their love affair on  that practical basis which points like  an index finger to matrimony, but so  long as it had seemed to him an honest  hesitation he had borne it with what  grace he could summon.  His lips set in an inflexible line, and  without a word his hand closed firmly  upon her arm, and with more determi-  -nat!on-than-~gentlenes^~he-guided-her-  to a bench near by.  "Well?" she questioned when she had  settled herself in a corner of the seat  and he had squared himself beside her.  In truth, though she strove valiantly  to conceal it. the queen was a" trifle  startled.  Her late, obedient subject studied her  for some moments In silence and with  nn expression rather too suggestive of  flint to be entirely to the queen's taste.  Then he spoko, nnd his words fell as  crisply as icicles.  "It is about time that you understood  me," ho began at last. 4,You have played with me long enough. What I have  to say uow is just this: You may take  me or leave me, precisely as you  choose, but whichever you do must be  done at once,"  Ho paused a moment and then elaborated:  "I'm tired of ploying tho devoted  subject, tired of being mnde to fool  that my lovo is nothing and my lack  of wealth everything. I have twelve  hundred a year.",IIo paused for a brief  momont, conscious of a mad desire to  mako tho matter as bad na possiblo,  thon added, "And thoro Is no certainty  that I'll over have more."  Though ho would havo thrashed  cheerfully any man who had dared to  mako such an ass-ertlon nbout him, to  say it to her about himself at this particular moment afforded him a grim  satisfaction.  "What I want-what I will have," ho  continued In a miiflled voire without  giving her a chiinec to speak, "Is a definite, a final answer!" And then, beforo  tho queon had really caught her breath,  lio finished In n tone nothing short of  command, "And I want lt within live  minutes:"  For ono Hooting moment something  llko pale dismay showed In tho girl's  face. She luul never counted on a moment like thin. Then her cyvts kindled  royally, and a flush of anger over-  spread her face.  Almost' unconsciously sho rose, hor  companion following her example, and  ber eyes blazed their resentment Into  the cold determination of bis for a full  second before she addressed him.  "You may have your uuswer thin moment!" sho Hung at him In a tono of  dangerous clearness. "I only wonder  that T could over hnvo hedtntod! It In  ���������No'���������n thousand times 'No!'"  She noticed with u cruel delight tho  sudden, still whiteness that overspread  his fnco us, with an Ironical bow. ho  turned and walked rapidly nwny. Then  n row fcellntr r-nddenlv HutHu-d nt her  heart.  Had she not lately been a queen, with  0 loyal, faithful subject to whom s!ie  had turned an ear quito royally indifferent?

After all, it wns for tho best. 8h������  ' was poor, ana sieve was poor���������tn possessions. But by some freakish operation of the law of compensation both  were endowed with tastes of an unmistakable richness.  ; "Yes, it's all for the best," she said  'aloud as she closed the door of her  room behind her. "It's all"���������  j The rest was lost In the pillow, for  I the ex-queen had thrown herself face  1 downward on the bed and was in-  ,' dulging in the plebeian comfort of a  good cry.  Tor days thereafter such Interest as  she felt'in the ialL gray world ws*  centered In the postman nnd such messenger boys as appeared from time  to time ln the street iu which she  lived.  Not that she repented that ringing  "No" that she had given Steven on the  day of their quarrel���������by no means. Her  heart, she told herself, was dead. She  could not be poor. She would not!  She would marry some good old soul  to whom she could render the respect  of a daughter���������and the bills of a wife,  Tbat was all that a girl in her position  could do. It was the fault of modern  ideas.  If was after she heard about his attentions to the Foisom girl that she  wept no more and became markedly indifferent to the coming of the postman. From this time, too, she conscientiously tried to tolerate old Mr.  Fullerton and his flowers, the two ever  arriving with an alternate regularity  that was full of meaning.  She pictured herself as a queen again,  and this time with all the outward  semblance of one. But, perversely  enough, she could not keep Steven  Converse out of the scene. If she saw  herself rolling down Fifth avenue fn  the Fullerton vehicle she lis instantly  evoked the image of Steve dofflng his  hat with cold politeness, while she  nodded With the haughty nonchalance  of a great lady.  And so the weeks lengthened into  months, and the ex-queen assured herself that she was forgetting.  *       ���������:-    .- * * * * ������  ���������'Not going out, my dear?" protested  her mother as she appeared in the hall  one gloomy Sunday with, mackintosh  and umbreha.  "Yes, mother mine. It's a fine day  for the art museum. No crowd, you  know!"  She had never entered the place  'slmiifTlliinn^  she was all a-tremble with eagerness to  ^et there. Some inward barrier of  pride had gone down, and she knew  that she wanted to visit the scene onco  more just because there she could feel  a little nenrerto him.  The turnstile admitted her, with a  click, not so much, it seemed to her,  into the museum ns into the atmosphere of .that distant afternoon. Before the "Victory" she stopped for a  mournful dedicatory moment. It was  here that he had accused hor of being  no more than a statue herself, and  then���������then he had gripped her arm and  made her sit down nnd listen.  With a little gulp, she turned awny  nnd wandered blindly onward.

With mournful eyes  sho rend the Inscriptions besido the  mummy cases.  So this brown and moklerlng bun-  dlo had onco been a queen! ���������Through  tho raised lid of the case she could just  catch a glimpse of tho object now SO;1  dried and terrible, but once so splendidly human.  "Poor queon!" she murmured eoftly,  ns with her chin resting on her hand.,  she gazed down at tho gorgeously ornamented mummy case. "Poor queen!"  And beforo she realized It a tear had  splashed down on the glass.  Having been n queen, something of  the sadness and futility of it all wnim;  her spirit. Somehow being rich or poor  did not now seem to matter. Being  happy seemed the greatest tiling.

Does  uot she see straight into your heart us  easily as I look out of that open window ':"  "1 used to think ao," said I, "but  now. to be'frank with you, I have my  doubts. She has au luuoceut delight  in mystification. It pleases her to play  pretty tricks., Have you observed her  brother?"      '  Derringer   smiled   a   strange,   sad  smile.  "She hasn't any brother," he said.  I was pacing the floor and had pass-,  ed him. Turning quickly at this speech  of his. I looked beyoud hhn through  the window, aud there stood Jimmy  Lamoine on the driveway.    Without  replying In words I pointed to the boy.  Derringer's eyes rested for a moment  upon James and then met mine.  "He Is not her brothor," he said. "Do  you   see   any   resemblance   between  them?   No; and there isn't any.   I remember your telliug me that Lucy Ann  mentioned to you how much the^boy  Joo.k.oOJ.^IiI'j'iiier.*. .Jlryhans Iv *r*o%  Tou and I have never seen Miss Lamoine."  "Derringer," said I, "you are becoming hysterical. What is this nonsense  supposed tb mean?"  "The simplest thing in the world," he  replied. "Let me review the matter.  I met the young lady whom we have  known as Miss Lamoine in New York  a few days before your arrival. The  effect upon me I have described to you.  It is the rankest folly to say that she  saw anything in me worth loving, and  yet I can't help believing it. Heaven  forgive me. Then you came, and whatever impression I had made was utter-  0 ly effaced." ,  "Oh,  see  hero,  Dewinger,"  said  I,  "she never   cared a   penny for me.  -Don't-disturb-yonr���������laind���������with���������wild-  hallucinations."  "My friend, I have her own word for  It."  He spoke with convincing earnestness, and I was .staggered. My mind  was still confused by his previous perplexing statements, and this upou the  top of them was too much for me.  "Let me try to get this straight."  said I. "Do I understand that you  asked her to marry you and she said  something which led you to believe  that I stood ln your way?"  "I did not commit that absurdity," he  replied. "She read my heart. She knew  that she need only lift her finger to  bring me to my knees before hor metaphorically or literally, confound It, any  way she wanted! And Instead what did  she do? She told me a very pretty story about a girl who was an orphan and  had been brought up under the care of  ono who had been lier father's friend.  As soon as she opened her lips I knew  that she was speaking of herself. This  guardian of hers was tho finest man In  tho world. Sho would die to please  bim."  "She?" I crlod. "Miss Lamoine?"  "It plonscd the lndy to omit names,"  ho replied. "She was telling mo the  story of a friend. It appeared that tho  guardian had a eon who had been  much nwny from home, a broad during  the last few years, lie was returning,  nud It wns his fiitlier'a bent wish, his  dearest hope, that thoro should bo a  wedding."  The perspiration from my forehead  ran down Inio my eyes, and It was  cold.  "Ho was n dutiful son, by all account," continued Derringer, "and  would undoubtedly marry lo please his  father even If It broko Ills own heart  and the girl's. Happily,, however, thero  would be no such double catastrophe,  for iho girl loved him."  "Sho loved ine''" I exclaimed. "SlUyl  loved me? The thing Isn't possible.  Why, iiiiin, I wus a brute to her. The  only shadow of kindness 1 ever showed  Iter was to sing sad wings to mako her  cry."  "Tho girl loved lilm," said Derringer  firmly. "Sho couldn't remember a tlmo  when she hndn'r, nnd, being fhe right  xnrt of girl nt honrt, sho wns nfrnld  lio would protend to lovo her In order  .     -       ,.,..,       ,,,,    .,     ,  4U    J'.l ...'it.    ....)   t.tlt.L..

I probably know more  about your real looks than any other  fellow who ever saw you. But If you  should dye your mustache a shade  lighter I might pass you on the street  without a notion that.I had ever set  eyes on you before.'*  "I think the youug lady endeavored  to express some such idea," said Derringer. "You may readily believe that  I was In no condition to grasp a complicated subject. However, be the explanation what it may, the young lady  was perfectly convinced that the gentleman in question would not know  her. She had .resolved to play a strange  comedy with him. Well, she played  It in New York and was not satisfied  with the result. At least that is the  rational inference. So we have had  the second act. with-a changed scene,  and the romance has come to a perfect  conclusion." y . ������������������ '  "It has?" I cried. "Why, man, I  JijLmnltjspo_ke_njt^  not been within a hundred yards of  her."  He shook his head and smiled sadly.  "1 have no rignt to pry into your affairs." said lie, "but I should be insane  and blind if I did not perceive how  completely you have come under her  spell. Otherwise it Is obvious that I  could not have told this story to youi  Yet because 1 ain the loser and am  going away, I really wished to speak  one frank word to you. I believe that  you are a fine fellow in every way.

"Derringer." said I, "you've gone  completely off your head. You're right  tts to Miss Lamoine, of course.

Mut when lie had gone I thought of  the rose that had fallen from lhe rock  nml of the voice that, had found Its way  to my soul. Theso had been sweet,  sweeter than I had known, but somehow die spirit had tied from them. 1  thought of tbem a long while, gnaw Ing'  my lips and wondering what a man's  heart could be like Halt he should love  a woman, and then his very soon Mould  desperately wish lo love her I'or lhe  sake of a volco and a rose, yet bu nimble to do It,  The Sunflower.  It has always been said, how truly  we do not positively know, that the  sunflower,turns its face ever toward  the sun; that it bows a genial welcome  to the king of day when that monarch  first lifts the curtain of night and peeps  over the horizon upon an awakening  world, and thnt it follows the imperial  visitor in his majestic march across  the heavens and hods a good night to  him as he passes with his retinue of  golden beams and silvery shadows behind the western slopes. This may be  an exaggeration of the sunflower's  conduct, but.we believe it is at least  partially true, and that the Kansas  flower does respond in some degree to  the attractions of the great luminary.  Anyhow, the thought of this handsome  product of the prairies turning its  frank, open face ever toward the light  and responding to the ardent wooing  of tho sun with reciprocal affection is  inspiring, isn't it? It is a symbol of  the ideal soul���������the soul that loves the  light, that .glows In the presence of  -things-that���������are-lovelyT���������the-receptive-  soul, the soul that is responsive to  truth and beauty���������in a word, the sunflower's soul.  CAltNEClE APPLAUDED-.  In Now York a few evenings ago,  when John Morley, AL P.; wus lh<*  speech making success of the night at  the annual banquet of the Chamber  of Commerce ut Dclmoaico's advocating free trade he introduced the  subject with apologies. He begged  his hearers not to hoot him out of  the hall for what he was going' to  say. There were 409 men present af  the banquet, . most of them multimillionaires, and they represented an  ownership of wealth estimated at two  billions. To the surprise of MY. Morley and many of those present his  free trade utterances were vociferously applauded. When he said that the  United States would be just as great  and just as mighty under a tariff  for revenue only, 70 per cent, of his  hearers cheered, pounded on the  tables, stumped on the floar and  clapped, their haivJs. Thc man who  led the applause was Andrew Carnegie, who has made probably $300.-  000.Q00 out of thc ��������� protective tariff,  more, perhaps than any otner multimillionaire in the room. .  lev e*  lllltA  7  Gilbert nf Colt'liontor,  i Whorl of Coli-hester, win nourished  three cetiliiries ago, lias been called the  founder of tho sclenco of electricity,  tlilbert discovered llie augmentation  t)f the power of a loads!one by iinulii:,'  or cupping It with soft iron cheek*, the  screening effect of a sheet of Iron, tho  method of magnetizing Imn by hammering It whllo It lies north nnd tmitJi,  the destruction of magnetism by lieut  ...iu   <<ti;   lAiMiu   i    ... i......   l..i    ,,..,���������,tt.t  f .: s:s: giif'Je l)v',A.    t',o'M"-.iV:'\'\% fvo'.'A  small to large.

We hear a great deal about the luxury and extravagance ofthe age; but,  wheu you think of it. a great many of  our most reckless fashions date from  past centuries. In the fifteenth century, for instance, the feminine wardrobe was magnificent, with Its garments weighed down with laces and  embroideries in guipure, points coupes,  Milanese and Venetian, uot forgetting  the gold embroideries worked with precious stones, etc.  For several centuries women wore  white shoes in kid and ordinary leather  as well as dainty ohaussure in embroidered satin for dancing the pavane  and minuet in.  In tho tlmo of Louis XIV. the women wore most sumptuous lingerie*  and dossous made chiefly of what used  to be called les dontolles d'eto. a kind  of silk blond laco with a cord In lt,  which used to he mounted over colors  for the petticoats and was also worn  feu- the hanging sleeves which used to  show the arms so prettily.���������Paris Fashions.

WHEREVER LOCATED WEAKNESS IS DUE TO POOR, WEAK  BLOOD AND CAN BE OVERCOME  BY THE USE OF DU. CHASE'S  NERVE FOOD.
