These pills make, new blood,  this new hlood* feeds and strengthens  the nerves and frees them from pain."  The pain is banished to stay banished���������the cure is complete. Mr.  Chas. B. Maclean, a prosperous farmer near Brockville, Ont., has been  cured of a_severe case of sciatica ���������'���������nd  wishes other sufferers to hejir of hii  cure that they may benefit by his  experience. He says: "For upwards of five years I was a periodical  sufferer-from sciatica. In the morning while getting up I would be  seized with agonizing pains in my  hips. Sometimes these pains extended down one leg, sometimes down  the other; often down both. The  pain was terrible. Imagine the agony-  caused by a red hot spike being  driven through the flesh. That wi  just my feelings when'the sciatica w  at its worst. Often while carrying  water to the horses the pain became  so acute I had to drop the pail  the middle of the yard. "I followed  doctor's treatment but with slight  relief. I then tried rheumatic oJns--  ers and linfificnts' but these did not  help me at all. Then I decided to  give Dr. 'Williams* "Pink Pills a trial.  At first they did not seem to help me  but as they had been so highly recommended I persisted in the treatment and gradually noticed a change  in my condition. The pain became  less severe. I felt stronger and my  appetite improved. I think I used  the pills about fonr or five months  before I was> completely cured, but  though that- was two years ago I  have not since had the slightest return of sciatica. I think Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are a marvellous  medicine and so does my wife who  used them as a blood builder.^ She  they have no equal and never  :ies of praising them to her  friends."  Good blood is the seeret ol health  ���������Dr. Williams' Pink Pills the secret  of good blood.

The bird  resemb'.es the common stork in everything but the head, wmch is any-,  thing but beautiful. The beak is enormous and gives the stork a peculiar, whalelike appearance. It is rather a puzzle to scientists to discover  the reason for this enormous appendage. The whale's mouth is built to  catch a multitude of small fish, and  possibly the atork's beak'may have  been evolved by the same agency.  Minard's   Liniment   Cures Garget   i  Cows.

Ik  PORTIERES were first brought Into  use to' exclude draughts, but In  the well-heated houses of today  they are seldom used for that purpose. However, they have been found to  be very useful from a decorative point  of view. They are largely taking the  place of doors, and are certainly artistic  when they are hung In beautiful folds in  order to soften the hard lines of a doorway.  In England, where the houses are not  so well heatea, and where privacy is  reverenced, no one would think for an  , instant of letting a portiere take the  place of a door; but instead portieres 1  are fastened to the doors themselves.  English children are early taught to  shut all doors after them, and when  they come to this country they marvel  at the free and easy way we live, with  all doors open.  There Is a large range of prices in  portieres. Handsome silk tapestry portieres lined and Interlined are costly,  but artistic e ects can be bad for very  little money If the homemaker is clever  with her fingers. /  Applique curtains, which are the rage  just now, are undeniably pretty, inexpensive and give a large scope for variety. They are especially attractive  made of madras cloth, which costs $1.25 ,  a yard, but when this cannot be afforded  burlap is.a good substitute. To make  the design, a flower and leaves, or whatever the design may be, should be cut  .out of heavy paper or cardboard, and  these used as a pattern to cut out the  required number of flowers and leaves  from linen.   These should be basted on  ���������the,_cur_talns,and_thejagesueitherufinlsn   ed off with the button-hole stitch worked  with heavy linen. thread, with couching  or with hrald edge. This craftsman  style of curtain goes particularly well  with mission furniture  Another style of portieres much In  vogue are the hand-woven ones, like our  Krandmotbera made.

When tho .  eu������a*n has been hung about a week it  will have had time to adjust itself, and  the bottom hems can be stitched together.  Pretty'portieres that are easily made-  are trimmed with tapestry borders,  down the sides and. across the bottom.

Denim is much used for inexpensive  portieres, and is especially pretty when  treated with an applique design. Some--  times pretty figured denims can be  found. A clever young girl recently,  found a good-figured denim, and she  then bought the same design in different  colorings and put them together, making the denim look reversible.  1 The Helena tapestries make beautiful  portieres, but they are not as well  known as they deserve to be. They are  reversible,-. and so need not be lined.  The surface of the material has a  crinkled effect, and the. colors are mostly two-toned greens, blues, reds, yellows arid grays.

When the goes  to tho theatre, her mother or some  married, or  elderly   lady   muat  also  So, or the proprieties will be outraged,  low, though porfeotly correct for tho  society for which It was framed, this  rule, if applicable everywhere, would  almost prohibit the average girl of mod*  erate means from going to tho theatre  at all in tho evening, for vary few  young men of her acquaintance could  afford to buy an extra ticket for a chap*  eron every time they wish to take one  of their girl friends to the theatre, Bo  just here oomes in one of thoso useful  compromises between laxity and license.  It is the custom of many refined people  to allow tholr daughters to go to the  theatre unaocompanied by a ohaperon,  provided that they know all about the  young man who has given the invitation, out the young couple must not go to  supper or to take an loo at a restaurant  after the performanoe unless a ohaperon  Is along or unless they are members of a  well-chaperoned theatre party.  Theatre Partlea and Monica,  Theatre parties, picnics or any excursion of a number of young people should  invariably be accompanied by a chaperon. "For," to quote a well-known book  of etiquette, "there Is no doubt that tho  j.n-.ccncc of a chaperon croat'-,- )mr>rr.v">  the manners of young people There nro  girls who are Inherently well bred, but  who, having the natural, Instinctive de-  tire to please, sometimes fear to be  considered prim, proper and 'goody-  goody' if they do not Join In the pranks  and Imitate the manners of those' who  seem to ba overmuch at home In young  men's society. To such the presence of  a chaperon is never an unwelcome re*  atralnt." ,. .    "   , -     .  In most American towns and cities It  Is considered perfectly proper to allow a  young man to escort a, young lady to a  dance unchaperoned, provided, of course,  that the affair be given at a private  house, where the hostess plays the part  of protector, or if lt be given at a nail  or club house where thero are several  married ladies who help receive the  guests and aot as patronesses of the  occasion,  Publlo Balli,  At very large pubtlo balls, suoh as are  sometimes given in our groat oltlos, it is  not considered in good taste to allow a  young girl to go with a male escort un*  less accompanied by a ohaperon. But a  party of young men and maidens can  with porfeot propriety go to suoh an  affair If aooompanied by an elderly or  married lady. At those big balls it Is  etiquette for the young jlrl to return to  her chaperon at the end of oaoh dance,  though at smaller affairs It is not considered at all necessary to do this, tho  girl simply returning from time to timo  throughout the evening and having a  pleasant word or two with the, lady who ,  was kind enough to take* her in charge.  !No young girl should drive alone aftor  nti-Mfttm with n vniinur man. ISvenlns*  "buggy rldos," often extending far into  tht* night, aut'h aa arc Indulged In occasionally in country places, are not  suitable amusements for a young girl,  and would, it she lived In a more enlightened community, put her outside  the pale of good society.

If the man's occupation keeps him closely confined in tho  daylight hours throughout the week,  there Is always Sunday afternoon; and  what more, attractive and Innocent  recreation than to take a delightful  drive, through quiet country roads on  the day of rest?  There If another thing that a thoroughly nice, well-brought-up young girl  never does, and that is to dine alone 1;  with a young man at a hotel or res- '  taurant. She may, If she knowa him  well, in the daytime, or in the evening  If it is not lato, go with him to eat  an Ice at some quiet caterer's, but the  girl who Is seen dining or supping alone  with mon in publlo places is apt to be  severely gossiped about, and can blame  no one but herself lf she is called "gay"  or "fast."  Of course, a mother Is a girl's natural  ohaperon, but, as our American society ,  Is constituted, mothers and daughters  seldom go out together, except in very  fashionable socloty, whore, as has been  said before, a young girl never goes to  any entertainment unless accompanied  by her parent or in the care of some  friend or relative, who takes the  mother's place in this respect. Among  people of more moderate means this  plan. Is absolutely Impracticable, And  all the average mother need ask ts that  the affair be chaperoned by the hostess,  or hor movher or some elderly relative  If tho party bo given by a young girl,  and thnt her daughter has some sultablo  means of getting to and from the place  of entertainment.

THE ax of Theron Allen had  opened the doors of the wilderness. One by one the great  trees fell thundering and were  tjevoured by fire. Now sheep and cattle were grazing on the bare bills.  Around the house be.left a thicket of  fir trees that howled ever as the wind  blew, as if "because the mighty were  spoiled." Neighbors bad come near;  every summer great rugs of graiu, vari-  hued, lay over hill and dale.  Allen bad prospered and begun to  speculate in cattle. Every year late in  April be went to Canada for a drove  and sent them south, a great caravan  that filled the road for half a mile or  more, tramping wearily under a cloud  of dust.   He sold a few here and there  as the drove went on���������a far 'oafi������#,  often, to the sale of the last'lot.  The drove came along on*v iu*.*'*��������� ;ng  about the middle of May, 1847. Trove  met them at tbe four corners on Caraway pike. Then about sixteen years  of age. be made bis first long journey  into the world with Allen's drove. He  bad bis time that summer and 50  cents for driving. It was an odd business and for the boy full of new  things.  A man went ahead in a backboard  , wagon that bore provisions. One wonted in the middle and two behind.  Trove was at the heels of the first section. It was easy work after the cattle  trot used to the road and a bit leg  weary. They stopped them for water  at the creek6 and rivers, slowed them  down  to browse or graze awhile  at   ^noontime._and__when__the_s.un_was_i.o.w,_  all the -world a'lovelier thing than that  wild flower of girlhood up there in the  hills. She was no dream if romance,  dear reader. In one of the public buildings of a certain capital her portrait  has been hanging these forty yeara  and -wins from all wbo pass it the homage of a long look, but Trove aaid often  that she was never quite so lovely as  that day she stood calling the cows���������  her shapely brown face aglow with the  light of youth, her dark hair curling on  either side as it fell to her shoulders.  "Good day," said he, a little embarrassed.  "Good day," said she coolly, turning  toward the house.  Trove was now In the midst of the  cattle. sSuddenly a dog rushed upon  tbem, and they took frlgbt. For a moment the boy was in danger of being  trampled, but leaped quickly to tbe  backs of the cows and rode to safety.  After supper the men sat talking in the  stable door, beyond which, on the hay,  tbey were to sleep that night, but Trove  stood a long time with the.girl, whose  name was Polly, at the little gn*e of  tbe widow.  They seemed to meet there by accident. For a moment they were al-aid  of each other. After a little hesitation  Polly picked a sprig of lilac. He could  see a tremble in her hand as she gave  it to him, and he felt his own blushes.  "Couldn't you say something?" she  whispered, with a smile.  "I���������I've been trying to think of something." he stammered.  "Anything  will  do,"  aald  the  girl.  laughing, as she retreated a step or  two and stood with an elbow leaning  on the board fence.   She bad on her  -best-gownr *"~   Ba big, dark eyes were looking Into hit  own,  if they were yet in a land of fences, he  of tbe horse and wagon hurried on to  'Bet pasturage for the night.  That first day some of tbe leaders  bad begun to wander and make trouble. For tbat reason Trove was walk*  ing beside tbe buck board in front of  the drove.  ������������������Well stop tonight on Cedar bill,"  aald the boss about mldafternoon.  "Martha Vaughn ban got tbo best pas*  lure and tho prettiest girl in this part  o' tbe country. If you don't fall ia  love wltb that girl, you ought t' be  licked."  Now Trove had no very high opinion  of girls, Up there in Brier Dale be  had teen Uttlo of then. At the red  stboolbouse even they ware few and  far from bis ideal, And they were a  foolish lot there in Hillsborough, It  seemed to blm-all save two or three  wbo were, be owned, very sweet and  beautiful. But he had seen how thoy  tempted other boys to extravagance  and was content with a sly glanco at  them now and then.  "I don't ever expect to fall In love,"  said Trove confidently.  "Waal, love it a thing that always  vwf*r***V ''Mrs. Vaiiphn Is a widow, nn'  we generally atop there the first day  out.

Trove earn** tup to the gate, nnd pros*  tntly her big. dark eyes were looking  Info his own. That v***ry moment he  trembled before tbem as a reed shaken  by tbe wind, Long after then he said  that something in ber vole* bad first  appealed to him. Her soft eyes were,  indeed, of those thst quicken the hearts  of ipeo. Jtf* dotihtft)) If ibtre WW In  It was a curious Interview, the words  of small account, the silences full of  that power which has been the very  light of the world. If there were only  some way of reporting what followed  the petty words���������swift arrows of tbe  eye. lips trembling with the peril of  unuttered thought, faces lighting with  sweet' discovery or darkening with  doubt���������well, the author would have  hp-rcr f'nnfi'*(>nnp.  T Their glances met.    The boy hesitated.  "I don't think you look quite as lovely in that dress," he ventured.  A shadow of disappointment came  into her face, and sbe turned awt*;*  The boy was embarrassed. He bad  taken a misstep. She turned impatiently and gave blm a glance from  head to foot.  "But you're lovely enough now," be  ventured again. ,  There was a quick movement of ber  lips, a flicker of contempt in ber eyes.  It seemed an age before she answered  him.  "Flatterer!" said she presently, looking down and jabbing tbe fence top  with a pin. "I suppose you think I'm  very homely."  "I always mean what I say."  "Then you'd better be careful. You  might spoil me." Sbe smiled faintly,  turning ber face away.  "How so?"  "Don't you know," said she seriously,  "that when a girl thinks she's beautiful  she's spoiled'/"  Their blushes had begun to fade,  their words to come easier.  "Guess I'm spoilt, too," said tht boy,  looking awoy thoughtfully. "I don't  know what to say, but some time, may*  he, you will know roe better and believe me," He spoke wltb some dig*  nlty,  "I know who you are," tha girl an*  swored, coming nearer and looking into  his eyes. "You're the boy tbat cams  out of tbe woods In a little red sleigh."  "How did you know?" Trov* Inquired, for be was not aware that any out*  sido his own homo know it,  "A man told us that camo wltb tbe  cotUo last year. And ho said you must  belong to very grand folks."  "And how did be know tbat?"  "Kv vour looks."  "11 y my looks?"  "Yes, 1-1 suppose he thought you  didn't look llko other boys around  U*-re," Sbe was now plying the pin  very attentively,  "I mnnt bo * vfiiy cnr'nim 1r������r.*rlTt**  boy."  "Ob, not very!" said she, looking at  blm thoughtfully. "I-I-well, I shall  hot tell you what I thluk." Sbe spoke  decisively.  She hod b*������gnn to blush again.  Tbelr eyes met, and tbey both looked  awny, smiling. Th������*n a momunt of silence. '  "Don't you like brown?" She was  now looking down nt her dress, wltb  a little show of trouble In ber eyes,  "1 liked tbtfbrown of your arms," ba*  i answered    v'  ThV'plu stopped. There was a pus-  sled look in her face.  "I'm afraid it's a very homely dress,  anyway," said she, looking down upon  lt as she moved her foot impatiently.  Her mother came out of doors. "Polly," said she, "you'd better go over to  thepo8tofl.ee." |  "May I go with her?" Trove inquired.  "Ask Polly," said the Widow Vaughn,  laughing.  "May I?" he asked.  Polly turned away, smiling. "If you  care to," said Bhe In a low voice.  "You must hurry and not te after  dark," said the widow. *  They went away, but only the moments hurried. They that read here,  though their heads he gray and their  hearts heavy, will understand, for they ;  will remember some little space of  time, with .-aeCjppds flashing as they :  went, like dust1 of diamonds in the  hourglass. V  "Don't you-remember how you came  in the little, red sleigh?" she asked  presently.        ������������������������������������������������������...  "No.".  "I think it's very grand," said she.  "It's so much like a story."  "Do you read stories?"  "All I can get. I've been reading  'Grey tower.*"  "I read It last winter," suld the boy.  "What did you like best in it?"  "I'm ashamed to tell you," said she,  with a quick glance at him.  "Please tell me."  "Oh, the love scenes, of course," said  she, looking down with a sigh and a  little hesitation.  "He was a fine lover."  "I've something in my eye," said she,  stopping.  "Perhaps I can get it," said he. "Let  me try."  "I'm afraid you'll hurt me," said she,  looking up, with a smile.  "I'll be careful."  He lifted her face a little, his fingers  beneath her pretty chin. Then, taking  her long, dark lashes between thumb  and finger, be opened the lids.  "You are hurting," said she'soberly,  and now tbe lashes were trying to pull  free.  "I can see lt," said he.  "It must be a bear, jou look so  frightened."  ���������4*It's-nothing-to-be~afmid'-of;" said-  the boy.  "Well, your hands tremble," said  she, laughing.  "There." he answered, removing a  speck of "dust w,ith his handkerchief.  "It Is gone now, thank you," said  Polly, winking.  Sbe stood close to blm, and as sbe  spoke her lips trembled. He could delay no longer with a subject knocktug  af the gate of speech.  "Do you believe in love at first  sight?" he asked.  Sbe turned, looking up at him seriously. Her lips parted in a amlle that  showed her ,v whlto toetb. Then her  glance fell. '���������T;'shall not tell you thut,"  said she in a half whisper.  "1 hope we shall meet again," he  said.  "Do you?" said she, glancing up at  blm shyly,  "Yes."  "Well, If I wero you and wanted to  see a glrl���������I'd���������l'd come and see \w������.���������'  "What If you didn't know whether  she was willing or not?" he asked.  "I'd take my chances," said she so*  berly.  There were pauses in which their  souls went far beyond their words and  seemed to embrace each other fondly  wltb arms of tbe spirit invisible and  resistless. And, whatever was to come,  In that hour tho great priest of love lu  the white robe of Innocence bad made  them one. Tho air about thorn was  full of strange delight.

Almost in the center of Persia lies  Yezd, a city of perhaps 40,000 people,  on the great caravan route. It is a city  of the desert, says the author of "Five  Yeara In a Persian Town," but how  complete that desert is and how large  It Is hard to realize.  In going from tbe Caspian sea to  Yezd one sees a strip of green country j  thirty miles wide along tbe sea and  another twenty miles in diameter  round Teheran. Aside from that there  Is nothing but waste.  The desert in Persia, however, is of  many kinds.   There are places where  the ground Is absolutely bare except  for the thick crusts of salt that lie  like snowdrifts, streaking the plain in '  every direction.   There are also places j  equally: salt where the proximity, of a '  certain amount of useless water produces a larger quantity of plant life  than in the ordinary desert   For the  rest there is a vast waste of sandy  patches  and of gravelly soil, fertile  enough when water can he brought to  It, sometimes flecked with dry, brownish shrubs, sometimes quite bare.  Two desert plants, never touch one  another. In the most .favorable places  two very tiny shrubs may be found  within two yards , of each other, but  with a single exception one does not  see on the central Persian caravan  route a place away from the hills  with enough natural growth to modify  the color of the distance.  Even in the oases no seed comes up  that is not purposely sown; no plant'  seems to have any association, with  the rest. One fixes the eye on each of  tbem individually as upon a single  unit, not as on a part of a field or a  garden.';,:  The water for these oases is brought  by the most diflacult means imaginable. It is found in abundance at tbe  foot of the mountains, perhaps 300  feet underground. When a well bas  been sunk and plenty of water found  a bant is made' for. the nearest place  In the desert which is lower than water level In the well. Such a spot is  Yezd, thirty miles from tbe sources  which water it. In a line with that  place other wells are sunk thirty or  for*^_yard^-.apart,jeach,3hallowjBr_than,  tbe one before, and then from tbe selected site a tunnel is run in to the first  pit, from that to the second, and so on  back to the wells, even though they be  forty miles away. Through this underground channel flows the life giving  water.  Sometimes it happens that a, sudden  hard rain falls In this desert country.  It brings many disasters, for the sun  baked miid roofs of the dwellings are  caved In, their walls are washed away,  and other damage Is done tbem. But,  worst of all, too much water washes  out and caves tn these "Quanat" channels, and until they are again dug Out  no water comes to town.  It bas happened at Yezd that a single  rainy day, "the water from which had  dried away or sunk into tbe ground before tbe next sunrise, has, by filling  the channels, caused a water famine  In the city for three months.  A FAMOUS DIAMOND.  Cnrlona  Incident  In  tbe  Hiator-jr  of  tne Kohineor.  The Kohlnoor fell into the hands of  the ruler of Lahore and on the conquest of the Punjab became a possession of Queen Victoria in the year  1850. The first authentic mention of  this matchless gem is by an eastern-  monarch, who refers to a "jewel valued  at one-half tbe daily expenses of the  whole world." A century or two later  the Persian conqueror of India, seeing  the diamond glitter in the turban of  the unfortunate rajah, exclaimed, with  rough and somewhat costly humor,  "Come, let us change our turbans in  pledge of friendship!" The exchange  was promptly effected. The stone fell  at last into tbe hands of the British,  and pending its delivery to the crown  Sir, John Lawrence, afterward Lord  Lawrence, was made Its guardian.  His blographe..*, Bosworth Smith, ra  lates a curious Incident of its custody.  Half unconsciously Sir John thrust it,  wrapped up In numerous folds of cloth,  Into his waistcoat pocket, the whole being in an insignificant little box. B>  continued the work upon which he wan-  engaged and thought no more of his  precious treasure. He changed hie  clothes for dlnnei: and threw his waistcoat aside, still forgetting all about the  little box contained in it  Some weeks afterward a message  came from the viceroy saying that the*  queen had ordered the jewel to be immediately transmitted to her.  In a moment the fact of his carelessness flashed across Sir John, but he  slipped away to his private room  and with his heart in bis mouth sent  for his old bearer, of whom he asked:  "Have you a small box that was in  my waistcoat pocket some time ago?"  "Yes, sahib," the man replied. "1  found It and put it In your chest of  drawers."  "Bring lt here," said Sir John.. "Open*  ft," he ordered when the little box had  been produced, "and see what Is inside."  He watched the man with tense anxiety as fold after fold of the rags was*  taken off.  "There Is nothing here, sahib," said  the old man at last; ''but a bit of  glass."  -,  Ktn*������flshera aa Weathercocks,  There Is a very quaint old world  superstition in connection with tho  kingfisher, which I fancy still obtains  here and there In remote parts of tbe  countryside, Tho superstition Is this:  If a stuffed or dried kingfisher bo suspended by a thread or string from the  beam or celling of a room its breast  Will always ttirn in the direction ot the  prevailing wind.

The   Tranaitfon   Front'   th*   Festive-  Board ot Primitive Man,  The first dining table was probably  just a block of stone or a log of wood,  but even primitive man must soon  have discovered that these devices did  not provide for the comfortable disposal of bis legs and have set about  taxing all bis Ingenuity to Invent something else. It Is probable that as the-  result of his cogitations a rough hewn  piece of j board supported on two big-  stones come Into fashion among th*  elite In these far prehistoric times.  The early trestle table which was*  used In the beginning of the fifteenth  century consisted of a parallelogram of  wood, fashioned Into a board, resting*  upon two or more pedestal-like supports. And we have a reminiscence of  this movable kind of table in the ex*  pression, "A seat at the board," today,  while that of "taking the chair" is obviously a survival of the time when a  chair was the place of honor reserved  for the master of the house or given by  tbe grand seigneur to the guest whom  he wished to honor, the other diner*  sitting upon rude benches placed afr  tbo side of the table.  One can Imagine the Inventor seated!  at tha bead ot his new dinner table,  clod In his best bearskin and surround-  ad by a select and admiring company  of his Intimates, who ate roast flesh  literally off the festive board and who  drank tbe first toast at this first primeval dinner party tn bis honor In cool  water from a stream hard by. From  this stage to planks resting on rude-  trestles would be an easy transition,  and civilisation had of course mad*  considerable progress before tha supports and tha board wera Joined aa one  place of furniture.  uttaries ���������.

LAURIE.  ���������  I  >. i  REGINALD P. LAURIE    "  Prince Albert Times.  *������  One of the best known of the rising young men of western journalism  ,is the subject of this sketch. As a  journalist and printer of experience  he has a record that few can equal.  He has his own excellence aa printer  and editor to thank for his present  position.  Mr. Laurie was born at Barrie, Ontario, about "thirty years ago, the son  of Alexander Laurie, late of Haddington, Scotland, and Frances D. Drury,  of Barrie, Ont. His first school years  \vere spent at Barrie, and the balance  of his education was acquired in Toronto. Though he left school at the  ^agV oF~f ourteen ~atid'^pent~a���������coffplff  of years with the crockery firm of  Gowans, Kent & Co., he still applied  . himself to night studies and pushed  forward in this way. Being strongly  inclined to journalism in a practical  way, he wisely set himself the task  of learning the art of printing, that  it might be of benefit to him when  he should reach the higher branches  of the business.  After serving his apprenticeship  with the well known printing firm of  Jas. Murray Co., he came west as far  as Rat Portage in the mining boom  days, and obtained employment with  the News, under the late 12. A. Chapman, as- reporter and business manager. Later he was associated with  Mr. P. A. Demorest, then publisher  of the Keewatin Enterprise. After  this he was for three years editor  of the Fort Francis Times and one  year with the Virden Advance. With  all these Mr. Laurie was occupying a  <"alaried positionT but in November,  1905, the opportunity of getting into  the business for himself occurred,  and in company with Mr. John W.  Young, late of the Chatham Planet,  acquired the Prince Albert Times  from the estate of the late J. D, Ma*  veoty, and they have made tho paper  one of the best in the west.  In July of last year a very interesting event, occurred at Begina,  when Mr. Laurie met the lady of hie  choice on her return from an eastern trip, and he was married to Miss  Maude-Bennost, of Brandon.  Nothing except physical misfortune  could prevent Mr, Laurie from taking  a foremost plaoe among the journalists of the west, for his ability is undoubted and he possesses that indomitable courage which has... characterized so many of the journalists  of the wost, and has playod suoh a  large part in the upbuilding of this  boundless country.

W reminds ub that the war  $a������ltb Cb,ina, was provoked by Japan  \nd later, the more important one  With $UBB|������    The   Chippy war  Was provoked, says Mr  Qreelmap,  by sinking ap-' unarmed merchan t  .hip partying HODCM*-6**0 apldUro.  to Oorea |n a tjmp Pf WM* -   With  tbeipO,P0O,PD() tftolp received as  indemnity (or that war, preparatr  jonswere mo**-10 fnr a conflict with  JtqsBia, which we prepipitateij by  treaohero\js night Attack upon  Russian ships at Port Anhpr beforp  any declaration,of war.

He says that while the  world hue attributed these wars to  the military tamper 6f the, poople,  expressed through various political  leaders, it hoi forgotten the Kmper-  pr,"who sits in hi? guarded palace  atToUo���������dreaming put his echemo  ot conquest   and sharpening tbe  ���������wUll2 with wll.vh 1*0   l.tsei   ������������l.*j,������u>  won the hegemony of Asia", and  again��������� "It is not so long since the  American people felt the vague  thrill of contact with a new and  terrible po war, when that swartb  Imperial countenance frowned and  there canoe from his Island nation  thai so recently fawned and whispered undying friendship, a sudden  foieo of threatening, a t-oic* harsh  enough tosiir Ihe Pr*^rWen< of the  United States to an attitude of ap-  plpgefcio conciliation''.

Mr Creelman concludes his beautifully written and  interesting article with the following-��������� f'Jt is well to avoid race discriminations ] and international  prejudices, but the crowned hero of  Tokio cannot be safely left un**  watched"  This may be pessimistieal in  greater degree than the outlook  justifies, but the opinion of a war  correspondent of Mr CreelmanV  experience and undoubted ability  is one that capnot he lightly overlooked. Stranger things than the  worlds Japanese mastery have hap  pened since history recorded the  World's doings, and history they  say, repeats itself.  .,  .i   ,       o "���������  Your Boy and Good Manners  TO LET���������Hawksha\v"3 mileri from  Sand wick, 160 acres, 30 cleared, 19  head of stock.

There is no reason why a"  boy should be boorish when hie  sister if polite, that a boysbould be  grumpy and awkward, ill at ease  belore strangers and unacquainttd  With table etiquette when his sister  possesses the savior-faire of good  breeding. We aro talking about  the growing boy. While he is Mill  udder your daily caro, tea oh him  to take off hib hat when he meets  you on the street, to rise when you  enter the room, to p'aco a footstool for his grandmother, and to  carry any bundle or parcel not to  heavy for small uaud������.
