Mr Dixon junior son of Dr Dixon  of Denman Island, met with an  accident while shooting last Friday.  He was using a Winchester pump  gun, aud in the operation of loading, the weapon was fired, the charge  striking the left foot at the junction of the large toe with the sole  of the foot As Dr Dixon himpelf  was away at the time, it was some  time before mpdical aid could be  procured, the patent 'having to be  sent to Uni >n Wh.trf, and from  there to this place, where he was  placed under Dr Staples care in the  Hospital. The doctor tn inks that  an ampututiou will not benece&ary  and the wound will quickly heal/  though it is probable the foot will  always be somewhat stiff. The  species of gun responsible for 'he  accident seem to have a playful  fashion of going off when not wanted, and are evidently good things  to have nothing to do with.

I can supply the missing  links, as to where she went from  the New York tenement house and a  life of poverty," she whispered, shrilly, "and a reason, too, why she will  never marry your lover, but instead,  rob me of mine!"  And in a few rapid words Vivian  gave Miss Kirkwood a graphic account of Helena's aivent at Carr.eron  Hall, and all that occurred fdnce,  ending with the marriage io Frederick Castleton, whicb had been broken  off at the very altar.  "Frederick Castleton does not know  _he is in London," she concluded, rapidly, "and he must not know it!  He must be induced to leave the city  at once!"  "So must Mark," assented Miss  Kirkwood.  "How strange that we should both  have the same thing to dread from  this girl," cried Vivian. "We must  both unite in our efforts to outwit  her. She must nol see Frederick; ay,  she shall not!"  "And she must" not see Mark!"  cried Miss Kirkwood, plaintively.  "When they return to the box I  will plead indisposition and -Frederick will take me home at once; you  can follow. And on the morrow we  will search out Helena's stopping-  place, and tflen:���������'  The rest of the sentence was whispered slowly and deliberately into  her companion's car.  Miss Kirkwood trembled and turned pale. ' ' *    ���������  "Do you     hesitate?" cried Vivian.  "Remember,   your     love as well as  mine is at stake.       It will     be the  -great-st_uggle���������Qf.Jife_Mt__?_n_jthreo_  Miiioeu, -wildly, throwing herself into;-  F.leanor Kirkwood's amis as.the carriage bowled rapidly, alonj;.  in the corridor of the hotel they  parted. "  "Jf I am not in the-parlor to-morrow morning when the breakfast bell  rings, go down with Miss Forrester  without me," said Vivian, lowering  her white lids guiltily over her restless blue eyes.  When Vivian had shut herself up in  the solitude and seclusion, of her own  chamber, she gave, full vent to tho  terrible anguish, rage and despair  that waged such a deadly war in her  heart. ;  "I love him! ' I love him!"> sh.  cried, fiercely, "and she shall not  take him from me. She might as  well take the heart from my bosom."  Helena in London, and Frederick  here too! Was "there ever sych  strange, unaccountable'attractions ih  fate before? She had been secure in  the belief that the blue ocean rolled,  between them, and that she had him  all to herself here, that, her great;  patient love would win recognition  in time. Such a love as hers must  win love in return. And now here  they both were, liable to meet any  day-rany moment! The old lovo  would sway the hearts of bothf and  the vows brc*:en at the very altar  would be renewed, and it, would end  in Helena's and Frederick's marriage. , :,  "Oh, no, no, no!" she.cried out  wildly, pressing her hands tightly  over her throbbing heart, and rocking herself to and fro, "I would kill  them first!"  That .^thought brought still another  and darker   to    her brain     so dazed  with the conflicting tortures    of intense jealousy.  For an hour or more she gazed out  women for love's s*-ake  The moments flaw rapidly by. Still  to both Vivian's and Miss Kirkwood's intense surprise, neithoir Frederick nor Mark returned to the box.  Vivian sent' one of the ushers in  quest of them. He- returned with a  puzzled face; his search had been  futile. The gentlemen were nowhere,  about the theatre;        '*'".".  "Go back of the scenes arid" search  for them there," cried Vivian, slip  ping a coin into the man's hand,  "and if you find either or both of  thom there, tell mo who they are  'talking with and find oili what they  are talking about and I will double  tlllS /gUnV.'V :.f-.: ...',-';������������������.! .-.     ������������������ ......,.*.

At-'���������. thn,t^.; instant Mark .Forrester  swiftly,' entered tlio box alono.  Doth could see by his pale, excited  face something unusual had happened.  "Madame," he snid, turning nervously to Vivian, "Mr. Castleton can  not return. Ho begs of mo to see  you both to your carriage at onco.  You would not enjoy remaining owning to ft circumstance which I am  requested not to explain to you until to-morrow."   a ',  Without a word both Vivian ' and  MIsb Kirkwood folded their opera-  cloaks about thom and followed Mark  out into tho street.  "Surely you aro coming with un,  Mark," said Miss Kirkwood, uh thoy  soated themselves In their carriage.  "I am sorry I must bo so uiigat-  lant as to refuse you," he said, earnestly, "but I must return to Frederick; he needs iiie. .To-morrow you  will understand whnt r enn not find  words to express now," ho answered, sorrowfully.

'.";  The night     deepened, and a heavv'.  fog veiled thc stars from her    sight  as it sprnid over the great city.  Vivian .'Cameron was facing the  darkest temptation of her life '-7-.

"He looks  like  a  man  .who    can be approached���������one  who-   can    be     inllucnccd by gold's  magic power."  Meanwhile     the    keen-eyed   doctor  had  taken  in  all  the  indications  of  his  early-morning  caller,   from     the  diamonds tha.t swung from her shelllike >ears and'glistened on her whito  hands1,    to the texture of the heavy  silk  sho woro.     He noted the ner"-  ous,    nesitatmg    manner,    and    lhe  flush, that stole into her blonde   face1  under his,penetrating gaze, and men-'  tally concluded that she had come to,  him upon some very delicate mission.  For an instant Vivian was    at    a  loss how to proceed.  '    "I have conic upon quite a Strang,  en and, doctor,"    she    said, "but   I  think,  of all London, you can help  me the best,  ' iind    I am   willing to  pay handsomely for it."  Dr.'Black    rubbed    his    hands together softly, his little black    beads  of eyes sparkling as he bowed    low  before her.  "I am highly complimented'   that  "madame thinks so highly of me," he  said, in a smooth voice,  "an.d    rest  assured I > shall do all in my    power  to assist you 'in any way.

"I may as well  come to the .point at once," she said,  emboldened',by his ready complianco  and emphasis of the words, "in any  way."          '.,. .'.  "Certainly," responded the doctor,  "few,  young ladies have that    rare  good sense.

"Oh, Helena!" she cried, plaintively, holding out her jeweled  hands, "how eould you take me at  niy word und think that I meant to  drive you from Cameron Hall?

Oh! Helena!" she cried, "let  us forget the past, make up, and be.  the true friends we were before.  Come homo with me, I have so much  to say to you."  "Surely you did not come to London for the sole purpose of finding  me?" inquired the innocent, artless  Helena.'

"Didn't you recognize me���������at the  ���������Gaiety'Theatre���������last night?" asked Helena, blushing furiously. "I recognised you* Vivian." ���������  "Dear me, no!" cried Vivian, opening her pale blue eyes wide in affected surprise. "Why, in what part  of the house were you, Helena? Who  was with you?"  Helena dropped her dark eyes in the  greatest of girlish confusion.

In acknowledgment  of.the honor he painted a fine portrait  of himself and presented it to the corporation, lie wrote to a friend asking him to see that the picture was  hung in a good light. This friend not  only did so, but hung a poor picture  alongside of it in order to heighten  the merits of Sir Joshua's work by  contrast. Then he informed Reynolds  of all the trouble he had taken. In  thanking him Sir Joshua told him that  the poor picture had been paint'-d by  himself (Reynolds) in early life.  inful, Fats*I  Kid  Ol  Minard's  Liniment   Cures Distemper.

PHASE'S KIDNEY-LIVER PILLS  Kidney disease���������marked by hack-  ache, pains in the limbs, scanty, dark  colored urine, puffiness about the  eyes, dropsical swelling and gradual  loss of flesh���������is always to be dreaded  both on account of the suffering it  entails and because of its fatality.  The kidneys and liver share alike  the responsibility of filtering poisons  from the blood, and It is therefore  necessary to regulate both these organs in order to effect a cure of kidney disease.  This fact accounts for the extraordinary success of Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills, which is the only  treatment obtainable having a direct  and combined action on the liver and  kidneys. . ."   .  For years evidence has been piling  up which goes to prove that Dr.  Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills have positively cured obstinate and complicated cases of kidney disease which  defied physicians and ordinary kidney medicines.  Nor is this to he wondered at when  it is remembered that Dr. Chase's  Kidney-Liver Pills are the result of  the long and varied experience of the  great American physician and author  ���������Dr. A. W. Chase.  Captain Wm. Smith, a veteran ot  the Crimean War, living at Revel-  stoke, B."C., writes:��������� "I can testify  to the benefit derived from Dr.Chase's  Kidney-Liver Pills. Por years I waa  a sufferer from kidney disease, and  could get no relief for it. The doctor  examined ine and analyzed my urine  and told me that I had chronic dis  ease of the kidneys.

I told the doctor  I was cured, but he would not believ������  me until he examined my urine again.  After doing so he stated that I had no  trace of kidney disease left. I have  recommended Dr. Chase's medicines  to many people."  Kidney disease is not to be neglected. It is far too serious to be at  lowed to develop. You can profit by  the experience of thousands of your  fellow-citizens and obtain prompt relief, as well as thorough and lasting  cure, by the use of Dr. Chase's Kidney Liver Pills.

HfcKCULANEUM.  ���������Cta Destruction Came From a Deluge  of Lava Water.  Herculaneum, ln Italy, is one of those  ancient cities which have not only been  baried,   but   actually   forgotten,   for  .ages. Tbe town, supposed to be of  Etruscan origin, lies ou tbe Campanian  plain at the foot of its destroyer, Vesuvius, almost midway between Naples and Pompeii.  Wbat caused tlie catastrophe of th*  jr*_r 79 A. D? Geolotrlsta havo com.  So the help of the archaeologists, nnn  . & Is now held that the destruction 0/  .Herculaneum was somewhat different  _rosa tbat of Pompeii, although Pom-  ������eii was also covered aud buried aud  4be general^ effects were the same in  both instances. Iu the case of Pompeii the city was overwhelmed-by the  _h.ower of small stones from tbe vol-  ies.ino and the subsequent rain of ashes,  but Herculaneum seems to bave been  deluged witb "water lava," and far  fewer people were able tojaaake their  ��������� escape froui tbe city than from Pompeii,  It is the theory that tbe steam from  tlie crater turned into rain, and, mixing  with tbe volcanic dust, formed a huge  volume of muddy torrent.   This gatb-  r, ������red other soil as it poured over tbe  land, raised tbe level of tbo country  ' snore than sixty-five feet and finally  ieit a mass of compacted tufa. This  torrent ran .on, to tbe sea, making its  ,-owa channel and forming a kind of  iagoon around tbe previously safe harbor which entirely prevented any ships  Srtxaa approaching the place thereafter,  Neuralgia is the king of torturers,  A tingling of the tender skin, a sharp  sudden stab from some angry nerve; .  then piercing paroxysms of pain���������I  that's neuralgia. The cause of the'  , trouble is disordered nerves due to  I thin watery blood. Tbe cure is Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills, \which make  new, rich red blood, and thus .sooth  and strengthen the disordered nerves  and cure neuralgia. Among the  thousands who have proven that Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills cure neuralgia is  ner, N. S. Mrs. Johnson says: "For  Mrs. R. C. Johnson, of Simpson's Cor-  upwards of ten years I was a sufferer  from the awful pains of neuralgia.  Over-exertion or the least exposure to  a cold wave would set me nearly wild  with torture. I doctored with two  physicians, butuhey did not cure me,  I then tried several advertisd medicines, but found no benefit. The  trouble continued at intervals that  made life miserable, until six or eight  months ago when a relation of mine  brought me a box of Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills and urged me to try them.  I used this box and then got a half ,  dozen more, and by the time I had  used them all trace of the trouble had  disappeared, and as I have not since  had the slightest attack I feel safe  in saying that the cure is permanent." Mrs. Johnson is one of the  best known,ladies in the section in  which she resides, and is a prominent  worker in the Congregational church.  Naturally; her family and friends are  rejoicing over hev cure, and Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have made many  warm friends in that section as a re  suit of their good work.  It is because Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills make new, warm, blood  they have such great power to cure  disease. They ositively cure rheumatism, sciatica, neuralgia, St. Vitus  dance, partial paralysis, kidney and  liver troubles, anaemia, and the ailments from which .women alone suffer.

According   to   her   family,   the patient when 14 years old. was bitten  on  both  hands  by  a  dog,  but   the  wounds were   cauterized   and  no   ill-  effects appeared until last June, when  she suddenly developed all the usual  symptoms   of   hydrophobia,   and   beanie so violent   that,   the   combined I  strength  of four  men would hardly  suffice to keep her in restraint.  She recovered from this attack and  was in good health until a week ago  when the spell recurred. Removed  to a hospital she apparently recovered, but Sunday night the same  symptoms appeared. Foaming at the  mouth ��������� and barking like a dog, the  young woman rushed about the apart  ments, wrecking furniture and at  tempting to injure anyone who ap  proached her. She was only controlled by ,the use of opiates.   ������  he physicians are puzzled by the  case.

Joseph Brewster in a matter of fact wray. It was  during a table d'hote dinner on a  Rhine boat, and he addressed the.stranger who at first glance shortly after  they had steamed out of Cologne he  had decided was a likable fellow.  "Yes, really?" answered the young  man. "It's a bit difficult to be sure of  one's etiquette on foreign shores."  "Oh, I felt sure you were an American!" cried the elder man delightedly.  "And I spoke to you because I was  rather homesick for the voice of one  of my countrymen today"���������  Just here there twanged from across  the table the voice of a Chicago butcher: ��������� .  "Like 'em to see I mean business."  He winked to nobody In particular and.  to; everybody in general as he poured  Into the hand of the surprised waiter,  Interrupted In his duties, a quantity  of small change.  . The likable stranger looked at Judge  Brewster and murmured humorously  as he caught the elder man's smile:  "Well, there's anothir one of our  countrymen. One gets a bit,ashamed  of the species though���������eh?"  They went oh deck together shortly  after they left Coblenz. The younger  fellow, whose name was Gale, told,  stories of the Philippines, where he had  been for five years. .He had important  business Tn Germany -. and had come  home that way���������for the United States  was home to him. He had interesting  , tal-s bt the Philippine Islands, of the  great things that had been ,done; during  the American occupation and of the  many things that were yet to do. He  had something, to, say of the wealth of  ' virgin material in the country; also he  bad something to say of the trials and  ;' iSssbiation. ���������'������������������ *   '.>>, '   .,'   ,;      '  >; Obviously, the judge concluded, this  ^Hka-ble-chapThad-e-perienGed-the^tragi.  . edy'a-.well as the comedy of life; ��������� It  was'true he had a good, hpnest laugh  and a certain merry way of ^'saying  things, but, also, in repose ther6 was a  stern sadness about the mouth as of  one who has suffered overmuch.   The  kindly judge found himself wishing he /  knew, more about him.    Perhaps he  was hunting for a leader when- as the  twilight was coming on, he reiriarked:  ��������� "Strange a man .who's as fowl of the:  States as you  are should have left'  them for five years���������especially'as you ll  don't belong to the army."

"But," said the judge slowly, trying  to get into the spirit of the thing,, "you  see, you didn't tell me. Her husband  has died, bas he, and it's all plain sailing at last?"  "Died?" All the boyishness went out  of Gale. The stern sadness about his  mouth, was .plainly perceptible. "No,  he'-hasn't died, and she hasn't got a  divorce, but we're going to play at the  old, old game of 'pretending.' We're  Bolng to' pretend that that eonfoundeiJ  rake is dead, and we're going to begin  our lives afresh."  The judge stroked his chin in a way  that meant he was seriously troubled.  All tbe, clerks in bis offices knew that  sign, but it conveyed nothing whatever  to Gale.  "Yes, and next month we're going  back to the States together.   We"���������,:  "Is that quite fair to the woman,.do  you think?" broke in the judge quietly.  "I dare say she may love you enough  to sacrifice herself, only"���������  "Love me enough?" repeated; Gale  enthusiastically. And then more tenderly: "Why, she loves me enough to  rum are wiin me!' i, too, am wining  now to risk it, although there was a  time when I wasn't.",  "Love isn't everything, my friend,"  pursued the judge meditatively." "It  isn't everything���������not even from the  world's point of view. Have you  thought, when you're advising her to  take this step with you, of what the  world will say?"  "Oh, likely enough, the world will  call her a fool. But let the world go  hang! When two people love, each  other as much as she: and I do I tell  you there Isn't much else that counts.  We are very serious, aren't we?  Chance acquaintances should enjoy the  fleeing mome'ht. What a lot of people  are going to get oft at Bingen!"  The meditative look had not left the  judge's eyes while Gale had been talk-  ^ ing.   When tie ceased he recalled himself with ah effort.  "Beg pardon? Oh, yes, all the Baedeker people."  The kindly judge had taken Buch a  fancy to Gale that he hated to. see him  go wrong, and as the duskj. deepened  thickly he made one'fihaiiliea.  ' "I can't forget what you've been  telling me about���������about' ��������� the;, lady in  _.the_case." said he solemnly:' "You see,  flock oi geese, ana t recently discussed  with him the degree of intelligence  possessed by these birds.

More Merry Mistakes  By the Author,  Henry J- Barker, Nl, A,  A lady teacher, on returning from  church service with her string of little  pupils, said to one of them whose hand  she was holding:  "Well, dear, and how did you like  the service this morning?"  "Oh, so much; so very much!" replied the little dot.  "And why so, dear?"  " 'Cause they sang my fav'rlte hymn  ,���������that about the she-bear."

Whatever relations have existed have  been of an epistolary character, and  there has been a marked disposition to  treat Japanese royalties with a sort of  patronizing "and almost contemptuous  condescension/ which has been bitterly  resented at Tokio.

"A little incident that occurred at a  fashionable society wedding last week  should serve as a warning to the bargain hunter at the summer sales," says  The London Chronicle. "A woman in  a new hat���������it was a particularly successful hat���������sat serene and self-satisfied  in one of the top pews. To her came an  agitated lady's maid. A whispered colloquy followed, resulting in the blushing discomfiture of the serene and self-  satisfied woman" The maid fumbled in  the chiffon, dealing havoc among the  spring, summer and autumn flowers  that bloom with such amazing spontaneity on hats of this sort, and finally  retired with a label, but not before  many a feminine eye and one or two  masculine ones had read on it the compromising legend, 'Reduced from ������������������.'
