Well-Known Norwood Contractor Always Has a Good Word for Dodd's  Kidney Pills.  Norwood, Out., Nov. 21.���������(Spe-  ial.)���������Mr. W. N. Baskin. the well  known lumberman and railroad contractor, here, i.s one of those who  never fail to say a "good word for  Dodd's Kidney Tills. Mr. Baskin  gives tlio reason why as follows:  "For two years I was laid up with  Ijumbago and Kidney Disease. At  times 1 would become very weak and  would have to give up work. I did  work on the C. P. R. and the Parry  Sound lt. 11., and people all know  how sick I. was.  " "Reuding of wonderful cures by  Dodd's Kidney Pills led m<5 to try  them, and 1 can say I have not had  any pains since I used them. It just  took three boxes to cure me completely."  Lumbago is one of thc results ot  Kidney Disease. Cure your Kidney*  with Dodd's Kidney Pills and you  will cure Lumbago.  BAR8AR0US ENGINES.  Van Trapji and Spring Guns Once In  Use In Kngrluud.  We were reminded tbe other day of  some pf the incidents of country life  of former years by the offering for  sale at a London auction mart of a  couple of man traps. These engines  ���������were once upon a time part of the  chattels of well nigh every considerable landowner and every energetic  gamekeeper. Another implement was  the spring gun, which turned on a  swivel and discharged itself as sbon as  one of the connecting wires was stumbled against, the muzzle of the gun  turning in the direction of the trespasser as indicated by the wire, the  guilty party generally receiving a coating of pitch if of nothing worse. The  man traps sold the other day were  probably the first some of the attendants at the sale ever saw and were of  the old formidable pattern���������that is to  say, they resembled a glorified gin.  _They measured _soventy-four inches  Jong aud were ju^TalTduFThreTTeet~fu*  height, so that they would catch a  poacher well above the knee, and once  nipped there be would remain till his  cries or the ordinary round of the  keepers led at once to his release and  capture. The spring gtiii gave its  alarm, and watchers wero speedily'in  attendance. There was something very  barbarous about tho uso of these engines, which were not so very long ago  quite common. In fact, people need  not be very old to have seen boards  bearing tlio legend, "Bownro of innn  traps and spring guns."���������London Field.  Its Wonderful Flights and Some Odd  Beliefs About the Bird.  Of all the strange creatures seen by  travelers not the least interesting is  the wandering albatross. This great,  feathered wanderer, sometimes measuring seventeen feet from tip to tip of  its wings, will follow a ship for days  at a time. Some travelers and sailors  declare that they have seen a particular bird fly for weeks at a time without ever being seen to alight upon the  waves.  It not merely follows the ship, but  wheels in great circles around it and  above it, high iu the air, as if to show  that it is not tired. Sometimes the  bird will be seen to hang in the air  with its wings apparently motionless, I  and tho sailors say that then it is  asleep.  Not only in pleasant weather will the  albatross fellow a ship for days and  weeks, but through the most terrific  storms'it will continue its untiring  flights. In fact, to find an albatross  otherwise than on the wing is like  finding a weasel asleep.  Once a year the female albatross flies  away a few thousand miles to the  great, lonely island rock of Tristan  d'Acunha, which lifts its desolate head  far in the south Atlautic, or to some  equally remote place, and there lays  one egg in the hollow of a rock.  The albatross has always been a bird  of mystery, and in ancient times the  people believed that these unwearying  sea birds were the companions of the  Greek warnior Dioiriedes, who were  said to have been changed into birds at  the death of their chief.  When America was discovered and  ships began to sail abroad to the Pacific ocean, to double the Cape of Good  Hope and to explore the "seven seas"  generally, the old belief about the albatross had been forgotten by the sailors  and explorers, but In their long and  lonesome voyages over waters which  were cut by no keel but their own and  upon whose vast expanse they saw no  other sail but theirs the presence of the  albatross following the ship day after  day became a1 great source of comfort  and companionship. So it came to be a  belief that ill luck would follow any  one who killed one of these birds, and  that belief is common among seafaring men of this very day. Coleridge's  famous "Rhyme of the- Ancient Mariner" is based upon this belief.

This  was more- than five years agof and  events have ���������'���������abundantly justified his  judgment. .*'   \ ������������������������������������������������������    ���������  Mr. Lush had come west in May,  1898, and up to tlie time of his locating in Deloraine he had had an  uphill fight against fortune. He had  come out front Ontario at the invito.!-  tion of some citizens of Napinka.  who ,wanted that placo to have its  own local paper. Whether or not  they misrepresented to Mr. Lush the  size of their town, and overstated  the measure of support they were  prepar-ed to accord the venture, or  whether, with characteristic western  optimism, they depicted the business  prospects of a local newspaper in the  light of their own roseate visions of  the town's future, cannot now be  said. But it is certain that Mr,  Lush, who had packed up and  brought West his printing plant from  Peterboro, Ont., to Napinka, was  not favorably impressed with the  outlook. To one accustomed to the  larger centres at which papers are  published in the East the idea of  starting a paper at so small a place  seemed doubtless preposterous.,. Nevertheless, Mr. Lush trave the proposition a fair trial. The Napinka O'a-  zette made its appearance in due  course, and for eleven months\ it  struggled against adverse fortune. It  was an eight-page paper, four/ of  which were printed at home. But,  aftor some months of experiment, Mr.  Lush found that the proposition  ,wonId_uo,t_ga._and_ho was forcecl_to_  seek fresh���������fields nnd pastures new.  Encouraging offers had, been ntude.by  some prominent citizens of Deloraine,  and thither Mr. Lush moved his plant  and, with new hopes, issued in  March, 1899. the first number of the  Deloraine Advertiser.  Against trie keen competition of the  long' established Times, the' Advertiser won its way slowly. But with  each succeeding season its success  was more pronounced, and to-day it  is acknowledged as one til' the best  representatives of the local press.'-of  the province, Typographically it is  one of the best looking sheets of the  West, for Mr, Lush's long service in  the mechanical branch of "the art  preservative"'.hns made hint critical  and exacting on that score. Its local  'news is covered adequately, the mat-  ! tor being written with brightness  and vim. As before stated, t.he Advertiser gives nn Independent support  to f,lnv Conservative party, and its  editorial ��������� utterances have had their  share in moulding public opinion in  the section through which it circ'u-  latos. In point of ntlverfising patronage, the Advi'i'liser is now almost,  if not (|iiite. on n par with its much  older 'competitor, Altogether, the  Advertiser is n tribute to the energy  nnd the pluck of Us founder, as much  as to his ability as a printer nnd  editor.

Mr .'.Lush is an Englishman by  birth, but knows nothing of the land  of his nativity, for lie was brought  but to Canada at the age of three.  The family home was at Shaftsiiury���������  the seat of the late earl of that  name���������in Dorsetshire, and from this  home two of his uncles bad previously emigrated to Canada. They  had located at Peterboro. Ont., and  thither the Lush family moved on  coming to the Dominion. At this  town young Lush received his education, and after a course nt the business colloe-i.\ at tbe age of eighteen,  entered the job department of the.  Peterboro Examiner, of which the  Hon. J. 11.'* .Stratton is proprietor.  After spending five years in this office, he went into business for himself, buying out the print shop of  Harper ,& 'Co. He had been so engaged for a year when tbe before-  mentioned offer of Xnpinkn citizens  determined .him to come west.  Mr. Lush- is yet a young man, being loss than thirty years old. He  seems destined fo stTcWOiriiv*~othTr-  enterprises in addition to his cftosen  business of newspaper work, for be  has recently gone into other lines of  activity, and with excellent prospects. Among his ' townsmen he is  respected and dcsrvcdly popular, and  bis career, alike as a journalist, a  business man and a representative  citizen, seems full of promise.

Harrington folt suddenly as ill  at ease in his dress clothes as a college  boy at his first "prom."  Even now. the organ was pealing its  preliminary riot of music.   A moment  more aud the march -would summon  them forth to the altar rail to await  the; rest of the party.   They had rehearsed tho "business" last night with  half a dozen candles and supply music.  .   .The. bride would, haye her weddjng  march played by no other than,a west-  ; era school friend, who was to arrive  ,    latei   ' Down ��������� tbe  two   aisles - would  come the lines of ushers and bridesmaids, tbe toddling ring bearers, the  maid of honor in yellow, witb hat of  vpalest green and'an armful of daffodils (Madeleine had confided to him   rall_,the__aickening_def-ails),__then_tlie-  'fetately bride on her father's arm.   If  one must marry, Madeleine was the  /  **.  ri|rht sort, and Bob .was getting about  the best there was.  This daffodil maid of honor was another of his miseries, a second out of  town friend of Madeleine's, a palo creature wbo would match her daffodils,  bearing tbe Impossible name of Clarissa.

Everything moved delightfully,  and tlto breath holding moment of the  ceremony arrived. That was ns fa'r as  Harrington over got in his memory of  tho occasion. As thoir faced tho altar  his eyes 'wero arrested by a vision. It  was souted beforo tho organ in a bow*  er of puling, and tho soft lights fell on  a glorious crow.u pf shining auburn  hnlr.

Just In tlmo! In another ve-  hlclo tho aUburn head was being er-  ��������� tlngulshed.  "Why. ' Joe Harrington! What's  ���������wrong?" The bride's brothor was a  clear headed master of ceremonies.  "You belong witb Clarissa, you  know."  "Yon, I know. Some mistake. Every-  tody excited, of courso.

As she spoke they flashed under au j  vnrc lamp, and, bending eagerly toward  hei\ he caught the shine of her eyes.  It was'enough. His bands groped an  Instant, tben gathered ln her two  warm, yielding ones.  "Oh, girl, girl," he whispered excitingly, "I knew the moment I saw  you that you had come for my sake!  But how, bow have I lived all this  While and never found you?"  "I cannot tell. dear, only that t"������w  is the right time," was tbe low response.  Holding, both her hands In one of hia  own, he slipped to her sido and tipped  her head back' against hi? shoulder.  His'eyes sought hers in tba gloom of  the carriage, glorying in the revelations brought by the passing lights.  ��������� "The right time of all the world,  girl, of all the years that have been  for you and for me���������the right time lor  the seal of the promise for those that  are to come for us," he said with  quiet intensity, his lips closing on her  unresisting ones.  After a moment she straiirhtouod  hervelf with a happy little laugh.  "I think we must be nearly there."  "Yes. Wretchedly short drive. Oh,  girlie, girlie, I am so proud of you, so  gladly What will they thiuk of us, to  be sure? I wasn't having a bit of a  good time, and now I'm ever so grateful that Bob insisted on making me  . best man."  ."Why, but, dear!" It was a veritable gurgle of astonishment. "You're  not dreaming ��������� of telling now? It  would never, never do. We've not  even been introduced! I'm to be here  several weeks, you know, and It must  come to pass very gradually."  ���������"T suppose so, bless your proper little heart! But isn't it a wee bit more  unconventional to.have it happen thus  ��������� than that it should merely.be known  of?, Anyway-.-I promise to be tbe most  persistently lovelorn of any swain who  ever, aspired to fair lady's hand. Ab,  here we are!"  Fortunately the avenue was well  shaded just before the blaze of light  at the steps was reached.

Clarissa had come alone.  Madeleine bad been investigating and  wrenched from him tbe whole sad tale.  Clarissa wouldn't say a word. They  sweetly forgave him and were smilingly Introduced.  During the ensuing hours of the reception Harrington, ingenuous to.the  point of bluntness, found use for all his  skill as a dissembler. Tbo auburn head  was an irresistible magnet, and his  telltale eyes followed where his feet  were forbidden to"-tread. Again nnd  again he dragged himself back to the  daffodil maid and his proper duty, to  find her always mysteriously smiling  at him out of a quizzical face. It was  hard that the first madly happy hours  of one's life should be made to speed  so slowly, but at last tho bride aud  groom were off in a shower of rice,  kisses and merry cries;  Then quoth tho maid of tho daffodils  to Dickie, "Do look at Joo and Ethel!"

As far-  back as 1802 M. Mathieu, a French  engineer of note, presented a project  for a tunnel between Dover and  Calais. That, as readers are ,awarct  was before the steam locomotive and  railways were thought of; consequently M. Mathieu had 'not the extensive  cross Channel service that exists today to handle. >.  His was'to be just a tunnel bored  beneath the ocean bed, through which  you could walk or ride. It was to be  lighted by oil lamps, and ventilated  by mettns of. a number of tall ' chimneys whose tops would' stand high  above the sea like so many monuments. ,. ,T. ,^ .  It was put forward in ^H^scrio'us-  ness, this scheme. What would   have  happened had.any ship smashed into  one of.-the chimneys, or if   .one    of,,  them had  been leveled  by a ', stort  rismg several leet above the water s  level. Hero, in mid-channel, the  tubes from each end were to emerge,  and passengers could thus enjoy a  short breathing spell in the open air,  but below the level of the sea.  So much for tunnels aiid tubes.  Parliament twice threw out Sir Edward Watkin's bill for a submarine  tunnel, and he withdrew it in 3893,  but    there    still   exists   a "Channel  HEALTH FOR BABY  Babies that are well, sleep well,  oat well, ami play well.

CKOSS  EXAMJNATIO.Y.  * jrlY father enine promptly In re-  [VI I spouse to my summons. If  he delayed anywhere. I think  it was very near his journey's  end. To be explicit, it was ray opinion  that he halted his vehicle just beyond  the hill and made ii call in the orchard  before appearing openly at the Witherspoon house. The apple trees were  surging famously thnt day. giving better glimpses toward the lodge thau  I had ever before enjoyed, or 1 should  not have caught a momentary view of  him as he was hurrying away after  his visit.  I did pot mention this circumstance  when we sat down together in my  room to talk the whole matter over.  Instead fl opened'the conversation by  asking whether he knew a youug lady  named Helena .Jones.  "Yes; certainly," said he. "She's a  friend of Sibyl's. She's been at our  house often. What about her?"  . He had an exaggerated air of caution, more fran'k than the most open  manner of another, I'or insincerity playfully assumed by liiiu was like a narrow man's coat on his back, .making  him seem all the broader. I was reminded of his way when he used to  play cards with ycse long ago. and 1  could always read in his face what sort  of hand he held.  "I've met ber out here," said I. "She  is a very beautiful girl."  He seemed to iveign thia statement  doubtfully.  "I really never thought so," said hr.  Though 1 had long been aware that  those whom he found right at heart  were always beautiful to him and the  others never, I was still surprised that  he should'carry the peculiarity to this  absurd extremity.  "She- does not in any way compare  with Sibyl," he added, and I instantly  perceived that he would have wished to  recall the words.  "You promised not to describe Sibyl  to me, didn't you?",I cried.  He possessed himself of a palm leaf  fan that was In reach and began to  wave it to good purpose.  "I had a presentiment,"' said he,  "that this interview would be diflicult."  And then he laughed In that fine,  hearty tone that lingers In the hearer's  memory.  "lt Is considered unwise," he n<$ded,  "to praise a girl too highly Jn advance.  One expects so much."  "Sibyl must have known well enough  what you would say of hor," I rejoined,  "und 1 don't wonder she begged for  mercy. I would have done so on niy  own account If It hnd notdicon too late.  ' Sho must hnvo found ine a terrible disappointment."  He looked at me In perfectly genuine  surprise.  "1 didn't know she'd seen you," he  *nld-"that Is, of course she's seen you,  but"-  "Xotliero."  "I am not speauing or either or you."  said I. "There is a heaven sent boy  upon this place whose works were In  my mind when 1 condemned all mysteries. And this brings me easily to  my confession. In New York I met a  very charming young woman named  Anna Lamoine"���������  "It seems to me that I have heard  of her," said my father.  "She carried me completely off my  feet." I continued. "I ciiunot blame  myself; surely uot her. The best man  in the world might be proud to kneel at  her feet. The most exacting could uot  accuse her of spreadiug a snare. Vet  there is inwoven- lu the bright and  beautiful fabric of her character a very  strange thread. She has a perfect iu-  tuition, and. to speak outright, she impressed me as being able to read hue  print pasted on the back of my coat ^  when she was standing in front of me  I have uo doubt that all her ways were j  honest and her powers genuine. Real- I  ly, 1 think I was in love with her.'"  "You were?" said he anxiously. ;  "She has a brother named Jimmy," j  said l, "and he is spendiug the summer, j  here. That boy is the most remarkable i  natural caricature that ever existed; i  He pretends to know everything. He j  perverts all his sister's pretty ways into |  the most arrant and transparent trick- j  r-ry. 1 am not such a donkey as.tosup- j  pose that there is the faintest similarity j  between their inner uatures. but I am j  not strong" enough to bear the superfi- ;  clal resemblance. It is idle to suppose '  that she could ever have cared for me, I  but now 1 can never care for her. ���������:  That's the story in a nutshell." :   {  My father, developed a liking for pe- i  dostrian exercise and walked several |  times around my center table. j  ���������taihis-ls���������vuu-y���������reuiai:kiiLile.!l_hg--said. !  "I hardly know what lo say about it;" j  "ThereIs really .nothing that can be !  said." I rejoined. "It has happened. It j  is all in the past tense. Let us speak of i  something else." !  "Wuat. for Instance?" he asked, re- j  suming his seat. I  "Tliere Is a young man named Trask j  here." said I, and my father frowned !  slightly. "He seems to me to be a very j  good fellow, and I tliluk that he and ;  Sibyl love each other." i  "Why. what can you possibly know j  about that?" he demanded. "The uiau :  has not said so. has lieV" j  "Never, but 1 huve seen thera to- I  gether."  "1 don't see how thnt Is possible,',!  said he. "It Is true that Sibyl has told1  me nlmost nothing of whut she has  done.  She has begged me not to ask  her. And yet I understood"���������  "Thnt she' hnd not.come up to tb*������  house," mild 1 when he |MU������ed.  "Lot  me nsk you a question straight from  the shoulder. Is there u Miss Jones, a  real one?" '  "Certainly," he answered. "Miss  Jones Is not Sibyl, If thnt's what you  ineiiii."  "And you say that Miss Jones Is not  ben ut I ful'/"  "Not to my eye."  Bo 1 had been essentially right with*  He nodded, repeating my words:  "Not hero.  Though even thnt Isn't   out fully understanding. It was Sibyl  strictly true, I should fancy.

"Never again shall I be able to  endure the quality of mystery Id a hu-  man being."  "Why. whnt do yon mean?" lie nsked.  Astonished.

It was a  honor ������.o make a Jest of since in no  other way might It be borne.

What would he say if I should tell  him of the scene that I had witnessed  between Trask and Sibyl? Better not  mention it until I should be more sure  of my ground.  "Poor little Lucy Ann Witherspoon,"  said 1, "la likely to suffer bitterly. I  wish we could do something for her.  She ought to go away. She Is an educated girl and fit for better things than  to be a slave to her auut. if Sibyl  could come to know her well"���������  "Does she know her at all?" he asked, foreseeing what I would have suggested.  "Why, of course." said I. "Did 1 not  say that Sibyl and Trask made a model  of her?" '  "1 don't think you ever saw Sibyl  and Trask totgether;!' he rejoined. "I  understood that no man"���������     - ,  He paused.  "That no man went down to the orchard," said I, completing his sentence.  "However. I know very well that  Sibyl comes to the house.",  "You are mistaken," said he.  "Wait!" 1 cried, rummaging In my  desk for the print that I hud brought  with me from our house. "Who Is  that?" ?  "Where did you get this thing?" he  exclaimed.    "You   haven't  the   other  half of it?    Well.  well.    This is extraordinary.   I really ought not to tell  S^you"-  ! "It is not necessary," said I. "As  1 j you have spoken of the other half of it  ! of course I can't help knowing that it  l was originally a portrait of two girls.  I The other was Sibyl. This is Mtes  \ Jones."  j "I may as well admit that it is." said  : my father.  | "This young lady I have seen," said  ! I, "and for many reasons I have be-  ; lieved her to be Sibyl."  | "She isu't." he rejoined. "Make your  i mind easy on that point."  1 "Then Sibyl has stuck to.the or-  ! chard?" '    ,   ,  I "To the best of my knowledge and  | belief she has." said he. "At any rate.  I if she has come up to the house you  j haven't seen her here. But I'm telling  i everything. It is just what might have  ! been expected- of mc.?, Really, you  ! mustn't cross question me any more."  1 laughed. \  "We���������will- return���������to���������Miss���������Wither-6  I spoon," said I.   "She is a great little  j girl, and it's a shame that she should  i suffer.  What.cun we do?"  I    "If I had only seen her"��������� he began.  j    "I wonder that you didn't." said I.  ! "She usually intends to the feeding of  | the prisoners In.tho orchard." f  j "You don't mean the girl that brought  I down the luncheon?" he exclaimed.  ! And then he flushed to the line of his  I silver hair.  | "So you lunched with.' Sibyl today?"  | said I. "Wk'll, 1 knew it before, or, at  j least, I, knew that you were there. So  i dou'^worry about the revelation."  | 'Vwiint "did you sny her name was?"  ; he asked. "Lucy Ann? That's the girl.  j 1 remember"���������  S - "Hearing Sibyl speak the nnme?"  j.} "Yes," said ho. "You drag everything  I out of mo.   Sho was a very neat and  | nice appearing girl, and I must sny  that she seemed cheerful enough.  You  are suro you're not pitying her needlessly?"  I convinced lilm that I was not deceived, nud we spent considerable time  devising plans to help this poor child  bear her burden. There wns nothing  clso for us to do. If the Miss Jones  whom I knew was not Sibyl, my reason for summoning my father to a conference had vanished, but I was very  glad that ho had come, not only because of the pleasure it gave i������e to see  bim, but on Lucy Ann's account. II  sho were not the better for his sympathy, she would be the first thut ever  snw it full.  He could bo with mo only to* a  night. We hnd an early breakfast next  morning, and tubu he rode with Jimmy  to St. Jo.  During the forenoon I hnd n little  ehnt with Luey Ann In the mnln porch.  Her own nflalrs did not become the  subject of our talk, but she touched,  closely upon mine at one point. It may  bavo boen the sight of Jimmy driving  back from 'own tliat brought tbo ima't-'  ter to her mind.  "His sister's coining In n dny or two*"  laid she, "1 think you said that you'll  met lier."

R  CHAPTER XIV. j  WIIAT I MIGHT HAVE GUESSED.  [ETURNING to my room, I met  Derringer iu the hall; and it  struck me that he would like  to hear my news, since he had  known the young lady in New York.     \  "Lucy Ann tells me that Miss La*  moine Is coming," said I.  He tvlts taken- by surprise, but be recovered in-a moment. .  "Coming?" he echoed. "She's here."  I had just opened my door. He pass-  ed me and entered the room.  "Here?" I exclaimed. "Why, It wasn't  two minutes ago that Lucy Ann told  me"���������  "Never mind what Lucy Ann told  you." said be, "She and your friend  Jimmy are merely two wheels in tho  machinery. Listen to me, and you will  learn that Miss Lamoine was here before you or I came."  I looked closely at him to mako sure  that he was not tfte victim of a half  digested Idea. His* manner was completely satisfying.  "It is inconceivable'to me." said he,  "that you should not have recognized  her." ; .!  "I haven't seen her."    ��������� '  "You have not met her face to tnce,n  he rejoined, "but you have seen hor. I  was on the point of telling you tho  other day when you were writing to  your father,' but for certain reasons I  thought best to wait. In one particular  I was not quite sure of my ground."  , "Derringer," said I, walking up to  him and laying a hand upon his arm,  "ybu don't mean to tell me that MisS  Lamoine is the girl iu the orchard?"  "How can you doubt it?" he return?  ed. "I recognized her almost inime*  diately."  ("I can't believe it. Why, the girl Is  a blond."  "How do you know?. Did you even  see her head?  I mean, have you senr  it here?   Doesn't she always hide behind an umbrella?"  "It's her; clothes," I protested. "She  wears colors befitting the blond complexion. I'm an ignoramus in such nutters, but thore are a few little hi'-us  that a fellow can't help getting. SUH,  you know her better than I do. I ne?er  saw her except in New-York."  "Jspr I," answered he. "My acqua'nt-  ance is only a few days longer t'san  yours. But It mattered more, perhajis."
