On Wednesday of last week  previous to his departure for his  new parish at Duncau some of  his many friends met quietly at  the Waverley hotel where the  Rev- Mr. Christmas was then  staying, to bid him adieu to Cum  berland. After chatting a short  while the reverend gentleman's  attention was seriously engaged  in listening to a short address  read by Mr. Stewart, who also  presented him with a beautiful  gold Waltham watch on  behalf  of his parishoners and friends.  It was rather an unexpected farewell, and in a few well  chosen words Mr. Christmas  thanked those present, trusting  they would convey to the absent  ones his best wishes and pleasure  at receiving so handsome a present.        ";.',..,'  Later, Mr. William McLellan  on behalf of the Orange Lodge  and Black Knights, of which lodge Mr. Christmas was a member  presented him with a handsome  gold chain and locket.  The watch and chain make a  most useful and delightful combination. The watch was purchased from Stoddart, the jeweler, who engraved the monogram  F. G. C. on the case and on the  inside "Presented to Rev. h\ G.  *Chri5tmla_rby'his^*lri^l'roi_ersiand"  friends, Cumberland, B, C, Aug  24, 1907,"  In bidding adieu to Cumberland Rev.

Grant, Russell  ���������county, Ont,, writes.   "Eleven   years  ���������ago I began to suffer from piles, and  ���������as they caused keen distress, and be-j  came worse, I doctored for them, but,  with little or no avail.    They    were I  bleeding, itching and .protruding-, and  ���������oh! the torture ,1 suffered at times can  ���������never be described.   It was with suffering that the bowels moved, and, as  ���������nothing brought relief, I could only  ���������endure the    misery    with an aching  "heart and without hope oi cure.  "Finally a lady friend told me about  Dr. Chase's Ointment coring piles, and  to my surprise I felt relief", at once on  *asing this ointment; the little tumors  ���������soon disappeared, the ulcers healed,  ���������and the bowels became regular. This  \vas five years ago, and I have never  been troubled with this terrible ailment since, a thousand thanks to Dr.  Chase's Ointment."  Mrs. Capt. Clinansmith, Salvation  Army, Essex, Ont., writes: "It is with  ���������pleasure that I write to you in praise  -of Dr. Chase's Ointment. Two years  ���������ago I was taken with a severe attack  oi protruding piles, and became so  bad that I had to keep my bed, and  could lie in no position except on my  stomach. Doctors could give me no  help, and the various oils and ointments used proved of no avail.  "One Saturday night, when I was  suffering untold agony, my husband  vent t i the drug store for a box <.f  Dr. Chase's Ointment, which I had  heard of as a cure for piles. Although I had almost given up hope,  to the wonder of those around me I  was able to be up and on my feet  bv Monday, and have had ho difficulty from piles since. As a treatment for all kinds of sores and  burns, Dr. Chase's Ointment works  like magic,"  To persons who have given up  looking for a cure of piles or hemorrhoids, this letter should bring new  hope.

State   Ownership   Has   Proved   Great  Success  and   Prosperity.  The piospenty ot the Australian  ���������always under -tate ownership is oiie  r the iinpni unit developments of the  -nst decade. There are always cer-  "*un brunches ot these railways that  -re not profitable. These branches are  -i-aoticHlly'colonization roads, and until settlement overtakes the railway,  ���������mcli branches cannot pay. But as  ���������ettlempnt. advances, the railway is  extended -nil] further and so there are  ilways remote lines which do not pay  <*..������ "feeders" and indeed for the first  years do not meet working expenses,  vet these lines toster cultivation ai. I  issist in opening up the country and  multiply the population, and as this  process goes on. there is an increasing  oroportion ot the railway mileage  which begins to pay. Under state  ownership these branch lines and colonization road" have been built and  operated at a loss for some years,  which no privnte-owned road would  do without a subsidy. The customers  and employes of the road have been  ind nre treated better than they would  have been -under private control because the Legislatures of Australia insist on generous treatment to both  emnloyes and customers.  Yet in spite of this generous treatment, and in spite of the remote  brunch lines, anr) feeders which have  not ypt begun to pay, the Australian  railways, taken altogether, pay well.  The earnings of the last twelve  months available show an increase of  ���������"bout-one million pounds sterling, although the. operating .expenses only  advan'-ed by about twelve per cent, of  that amount. They paid the interest  on the monev invested in them and  left, a profit of over ������500,000. The  New South Wales lines earned ������400.-  000 mere than the year .before, with  lowering operating expenses. The Sydney crrresnon lent of The London  Morning Post attributes this prosperity to the fnct that the..'Australian  railways are b'liit and equipped sufficiently to earn much more than they  now earn. "With more settlement  nnd more people." he adds, 'they  would pav -splendidly. This ''ear the  profits will be lareer because we have  again had an excellent season. But  even -n the had seasons the railways  saved onr farmers and graziers hundreds ot thousnnds of pounds by re  'h-oed '-������������������pichts for stock carried from  the withered to the fruitful portions  of cur state.

Last week she told about seeing a giant  ��������� tortoise.   Here is the eetee.  the aitU tt  one she visited.  Dear Boys and Girls:  WHEN we alighted from our train  at the Shinibashi (the principal  railway station of Tokyo), our  friend   clapped   his   hands   to  hail a, red-capped boy.  The boy rushed up and relieved us of������  our hand luggage���������seven pieces in all-  carrying   it  to   cur   kurumas,  or jin-  rikishas���������Japanese    two-wheeled    carts,  for passengers, drawn by men.  For this he charfeed two sen apiece.  That means one American cent apiece,  or seven cents altogether, and it is all  the railway permits the boys to be paid.  Remarkably cheap, wasn't it?  Our course from the station led lis up  the   main   street,   the   Ginza���������Tokyo's  shopping district.   The first thing that  attracted   Jacky's  notice   was   a  great  clattering sound.  "Why, the boys of Tokyo rattle bones  Just like the kids at home, don't they?"  asked Jacky. Then, looking all around  him, he exclaimed, "But I don't see any  boys. What is it makes all that clattering noise?"        :'"���������:������������������ ���������  Our friend laughed.  "It is the ashida, or wooden clogs, that  all  the people have on their feet.   Do   ,y_o.u_sea?l,  "Oh: I do see! My, what a noise they  make! And they -walk just as boys do on  stilts, don't they?",  "Yes, the gait is'very similar���������rather  stiff and rapid."  "Oh, I want a picture of that man  with the cart!"; exclaimed Jacky, seizing his Brownie and. turning it on a  ., coolie who was dragging a load of  bamboo poles down the street.  lv%e/e /Ac TorfcAse h&& Sgcik  terms with Russia their representatives  in Portsmouth agreed not to demand an  indemnity, after all, they were so disappointed and angry that many of the  hot-headed ones got up a mob, burned  policemen's boxes and street cars and  attacked a number of church buildings.  That naturally frightened the foreigners > somewhat, and for that reason,  among others, the government thought  best to place the city under martial  law for. a time."  After luncheon at our friend's home,  we were taken out to Uyeno Park, one  of the most beautiful and popular parks  of the city, where we saw hundreds of  children having a good time.  Here and there were rail poles with  long ropes hanging from them. To each  rope hung a boy, hi. kimono carefully  tucked around his legs so as to be out  of the way, when at^a^ given^gnaLalJ.  -the���������boys���������gave ���������;���������_" hop, "skip and jump,  lifted their feet from the ground, and  swung rapidly around und around the  pole. "���������<" ������������������-,        ' v '  "Oh, I want to do it," said Jacky.  'All   right.    Go   ahead,"   said   our  friend.  So Jacky went up to one of the poles,  and pointed at one of the ropes, With a  look on his face that plainly asked,  "May 1 swing with you fellows?"  asmDafvtoaiN cues  fioo  ������a������i (jocks     ������������ rioaar  m/ITH euovtH  .tm  Mttm WITH  iWrmm  ''yP'-ZfcK  err* (jrarov .a-vm., wire   _,_  |Micr waeatu ton ran srt'ff  "Notice when a tramcar comes up.  and take the car and the cart together,  Jacky, the ancient and the modern side  by side," suggested our friend. And so  Jacky did.  Accidentally, also, he caught two  Japanese dressed in totally different  styles; one In the old-tlmo native costume���������kimono, outside cloak and geta  (or straw sandals), tho other-a policeman���������In a very modern European cos-  lumo, with tho addition of cap, boots  and sabre.  A little wny oft from the policeman  , stood a soldier in khaki, with fixed bayonet.  "Martial law, you soe," said our  friend, "Everywhere, all over the city  just now, you will fee policemen and  Imperial soldlerr ���������standing* guard together." ">  "Why? Are tn������. people so dangerous  and bad?" naked Jncky.  "Oh, no; but when they rend Jn tho  newspapers  that  In   urranglng  peace  The boys understood. They smiled  And bowed In a very friendly way,  while several of them chattered away  at him as lf they thought lie surely  must understand.  "What are they saying?" asked Jacky,  turning to our friend. ���������  "They are saying, 'Will the honorable  young gentleman honorably accept their  ropes," explained our friend,  "And what shall I soy?"  "Bow pleasantly to all of them, take  ono ot the ropes and any, *A*rlg-ato,'  which menns thank you."  Which Jaoky did: and such a good  timo as he had with the boys!  From here we passed on to where  group, of little girls nnd hoys wero  playing a sort of "Blind Man's Burt"  game, Some of them had baby brother**  or sister* strapped on their backs, hut  they eonmed not to mind their burdens  In the least, for they ran and skipped  and did everything that the other cltll-  dren did, while the babies' heads bobbed  this, wny and that, or hung helplessly  back in tho full glare of the sunlight as  Ihey blissfully slept.  Such dear,little babies as* they were!  And how cunning their little legs looked  spread out astraddle aero*?*3 their big  sisters' hips! '. ; -  On our way home from the park we  stepped at a, Japanese boot- and shoe  shop, and Jacky purchased one pair  each of the four styles of Japanese footgear���������a pair of zori, a pair* of geta, a  pair of ashida and a pair ot waraji.  "Can I send them home f������r the boys  and girls to see?" asked Jacky.  "It'll cost a good dear to do so,"  warned our friend.  "Make drawings of then* and send  with my letter^" suggested J'oUy Evans;  and that was what Jacky d-d.  The only style  of s*hoe  he  did  not  -sketch-was^the-w-arajirbeca-US-tit-'liyoka���������  so much like the zori, only it is coarser  and a little thicker, and is fastened to  the foot by means of straw ties.  "And the queer .stockings, or, rather,  socks, that many of the people wear^let  me make a'picture of them," said Jacky.  "What are  they  called?"  "Tabl," said our friend, "You see the  idea in dividing, the toe. d������ you not?  Every shoe, you notice, haf a piece in  front. Well, all a person pas to do is  to catch it between his big toe and his  other toes and it stays on."  "My, how jolly!" exclaimed .Tacky.  "I'd like to do that. It's such a nuisance  to have to lace up my shoes when I'm  Jn a hurry."  , "You'll have a chance in a-d&y or two,  Jacky," said our friend, smlhhgly, "for  when we go up to the mountains (as  you will to-morrow) we shall plan a  climb' up Asama-Yama, and for that  climb I shall provide you three or four  pairs of,waraji." '���������.* " >  "Geo!" exclaimed Jacky, "flfn I going  to wear out that many pairs Jh. one day?  Wont that be pretty expensive?"  "Oh, no; they only cost th^e or four  sen a pair.''  Jacky calculated for a minute.  "That's- only six or eight American  cents for threo or four pairs, then? My,  wouldn't my father be glad if I wore  waraji nil the time! Ho say* it's awful  the way I wear out shoe leather,"  "But what Is Asama-Yarna?" asked  Polly Evans.  "Asama-Yama," explained our friend,  "is a real, live volcano, I understand  you visited Haleakala in the Hawaiian  Islands; it is only on old dead thing.  But when you see the inside Of Asama-  Yama you will find something to look  at, I assure yoa."  "When do we start for the mountains?" asked Jncky. w  "To-morrow morning, on the 6 o'clock  train."

The. German boys  and girls are so fond of natural history  that when they hear of a new animal  being born at the Zoo they all flock  there to see it, and then come back  often to watch it grow.  You would hardly think that great,  long-necked animal, to whose mouth  the keeper must stretch up, was a baby,  "Would you?  But so Jt is.  It is a female giraffe, only a few  months old, and were it not for its kind  caretaker I am afraid it would not be  alive to-day. Poor little thing, her  mother neglects her terribly. She will*  not .-.>ed or sleep with hor baby daughter, ftnd so the keeper is bringing it up  on *n bottle to be a fine healthy young  animal,  The baby giraffe took at first about a  gallon of milk a day, but now it drinks  more, and takes a little hay besides.  When night comes, where do you think  she sleeps? Why, with her kind keeper.  When little. Fraulein Giraffe arrived  it created much wonder, for baby giraffes arc not often born in captivity.  Perhaps it Is because the mother is  shut up in the Zoo that she is so indifferent to her child, for down in their  native Africa giraffe mothers are very  attentive to their children.  One might think Mrs. Giraffe would bo  very proud, indeed, of her daughter, who  was a fine, large baby, weighing fifteen  pounds and measuring almost six feet  from the point of her nose to the beginning of her tail. It was a dear, gentle-looking little baby, with yellowish  skin patched with brown, big brown,  full, shining eyes and a very gentle expression.  By and by baby giraffe will grow to  be eighteen feet high. Then, if it were  back in its African forests, it would  reach up its long neck and feed on the  tender shoots and leaves of trees.  It is said to be very amusing to see a  giraffe run. They are not very swift,  and when they gallop they bring their  hind legs at each step in advance of  their front legs and a foot or two outside them. What a happy spring motion that would be! No wonder hunters  and dogs can easily catch them!  But if the giraffe is not very swift, It  _-���������-_-���������---*������������������*' ������* ��������� - i ���������      ���������_������������������_, .1 ��������� i���������  is plucky, and when a.tacked It ���������"���������'ri-fr  kick its hoofs so rapidly and so haT-b  ,that even lions are afraid of then*.

These useful little articles   may   be  made very simple or they can really be  turned into artistic bits of decoration.    ���������  In either case, they are not difficult of  construction.  The foundation Is cut from heavy  cardboard, and consists of two pieces,  about eight inches long and five and a  half inches wide, cut in shield shape  and pointed at the lower end. This  can be covered with any-kind of material one happens to have on hand,  though linen or cqtton goods are preferable, as they are less likely to catch  dust. A gay, flowered cretonne makes*  a pretty covering, or if one is malting  tho housewife for a gift, it can be of  art linen, embroidered around the edges  in a border, narrow floral border, or in  a band of raised dots, in a contrasting  color, ,  Paste the goods on each half of tho  foundation, being very careful to have  it smooth and tight. Let it become perfectly dry, then overcast the two halves,  together neatly and finish the edge with  a narrow silk cord.  On the upper part of the shield tie  two spools of thread or silk, one oni  each side, This can be done by putting holes through the foundations und  running a heavy cord or ribbon In tho  spools and tying it through the holes  on the back of shield. This allows the  Bpools to revolve easily as a thread Is  pUTho' scissors  are Jn  tho center be* I  tween tho two spools, and are slipped  Into two bandn of elastic,  which are.,  sewed to the foundation. .

There were  lines of stores and houses on either side of the main thoroughfare  from the river to Moosehead inn, a  long, low white building that faced  tbe public square. Hunters coming off  Its veranda and gazing do\v������ the  tstreet, as if sighting over gun barrels  at the bridge, were wont to reck-U the  distance "nigh on to forty rod." There  were '"Boston Stores" aud "Great Emporiums" and shopa, modest as "tbey  were small, In that forty rods of llills-  'borough.* Midway was a little Miite  building, its eaves within- reach of  one's hand, Its gable on the line of the  sidewalk overhanging which, from' a  crane above the door, was a big golden  spool. In its two windows were lace  and ribbons and ladies* hats and spools  of thread, and blue shades drawn high  from 7 o'clock In the morning until  dark. It was the little shop of ftutb  Tole, a house of fate on the way from  happening to history. There secrets,  travel worn, were nourished awhile and  sent on their way; reputations were  made over and often trimmed with, excellent taste and discrimination.  Ruth Tole was behind the counter,  sorting threads. She was a ma id.n of  middle life and severe countenance, of  few and decisive words. The door of  the little shop was ajar, and near it a  woman was knitting. She had fr position favorable for eye and ear. She  could see all who passed on pitner  side of tbe way and not a word or  move in the shop escaped her. In the  -^isterhoodishe-bore^the-familiar-iia'-ie-  tof Lize. She had been talking about  .hat old case of Riley Brooke and the  ��������� Widow Glover. ,  "Looks to me." said she thoughtfully  as she tickled her scalp with a knitting ,  needle, "that she took the kinks - Ut o*  him.   He's a deal more respectable,"  "Like a panther with his teeth Dulled,"'' said a woman who stood h? thi  couoter  buying   a   spool   of, thread  "Ain't you heard how they made up?"  "Land sakes, no!" said Lize.  "Well, that old tinker gave 'end bot_  a good talking to," said tbe customer  "He brings 'em face to face, and he  says to bim, says he, 'In the (fay d  the judgment God '11 mind the look o*  your wife,' and, then he says the sam***  toher."  "Singular man!" said comely Ltee.  "He never robbed tbat bank, either,  any more'n I did."  "Men ain't apt to claim a sin thai  don't belong to 'em.  That's my opinion."  "He did lt to shield another,"  "Sidney Trove?" was the half Whispered query of tbe Bister Lize,  "Trove, no!" said the other quickly,  "It was that old man with a gray  beard who never spoke to anybody an'  used to#fslt tbe tinker."  "Sbe was Interrupted by a newoomei  ���������a stout'woman of middle age who  fluttered In, breathing heavily, under a  look of pallor and agitation.  "Sb-b-h!" said sbe, lifting a largs  band.

"Ain't you heard about that woman  up at the Moosehead?"  "Heard all I care to," said the sister  Bet, with jealous feeling.  "What about ber?" said the sister  Lize, now reaching on tiptoe, as H  were. The sister Bet rose impatiently  and made for the door.  "Going?" said she that was called  Lize, a note of alarm in her voice.  "Yes; do you think I've nothing else  to do but sit here and gossip?" said sister Bet, disappearing suddenly, her  face red.  The newcomer sat in a thoughtful attitude, her elbow oh the counter.  "Well?" said the sister Lize.  "You all treat me so.-funny here I  guess I'll go," said Mrs. Tredder, who  now got up, her face darkening, and  hurried away.  "Wretch!" said the sister Lize hot-  ly, "I could have choked her." She  squirmed a little, moving her .-.bail  roughly.  "She's forever sticking her nose into  other people's business," were the  Words of the customer. She seemed to  be near the point of tears.  "Maybe that's why it's so red," the  other answered, with unspeakable contempt "I'm so mad I can hardly sit  still."  She wound her yarn close and stuck  her needle into the ball.  "Thank goodness!" said she suddenly.   "Here comes Serene."  The sister Serene Davis, a frail, fair  lady, entered.  "Weil," said the latter, "I suppose  you've heard"��������� She paused to get  her breath.  "Whm?"s������i"d���������thTTii-t^  whisper." approaching the new arrival.  "My heart is all in a flutter. Don't  hurry me."  The sister Lize went to the door and  closed lt. Then she turned quickly,  facing the other woman.  "Serene Davis," she began solemnly,  "you'll never leave this room alive until, y'pu tell us,"  ���������'Can't you let a body enjoy herself a  minute?"  "Tel! me," she insisted, threatening  with a needle.  s laxnt/^"  *��������� Have, j,'f?u heard the newif **  Ruth Tolo regarded tbem wltb a look  of firmness, which seemed to say,  "Stab hor If sho doesn't tell,"  "Woll," snld the sister Bereno, "you  know that stylish young widow tbat  came owhlle ago to the Moosehead���������  tbo one that wore the splendid black  Bilk the ulght o' tbe ball?"

One night  about 10 o'clock the nurse comes into  the room sudden like and finds bim on  bis knees before tbe widow, kissing her  dress an* talking all kinds o' nonsense."  "Here! Stop a minute," said the sister Lize, who had now dropped her  knitting and begun to fan herself.  "You take my breath away." The details were too important for hasty consideration.  "Makin' love?" said tbe customer.  "I should think likely," said tbe other, whereupon the three began to laugh  again.  "Now go on," said the sister Lize,  leaning forward.  "There he knelt, kissing her dress,"  tbe narrator continued.  "Why didn't he kiss her face?"  "Because she wouldn't let him, I  suppose."  "Oh!" said the others, nodding their  heads thoughtfully.  "When the nurse came," the sister  Serene continued, "the widow went to  a desk and wrote a letter and brought  lt to Dick. Then says the widow,  says she: 'You take this to my uncle  In Boston. If you can make him give  his consent I'd be glad to see you  again.' .  "Dick, he rushed off that very evening an' took the cars at Madrid. What  do you suppose tbe letter said?"  . The  sister Serene  began  to shake  with laughter.  "What?" was the eager demand of  the two sisters.  "Well, the widow told the nurse, and  Bhe told Mary Jones, and Mary told  me. The letter was kind o* short and  about like this:  "Pardon me for introducing1 a scamp by  the name of Roberts. He's engaged to a  very sweet young lady and haa the impudence to make love to me. I wish to get  him out of town for awhile and can't  think of any better way. Don't use him  too roughly.

The sister Serene covered her face  and began to quiver. The other two  were leaning toward her, smiling, their  mouths open.  "What was it?" said the sister Lize.  " 'Kicked him downstairs,' ��������������� tbe narrator quoted.  "Y!" tbe two whispered.  "Gopd enough for him." It was the  verdict of tbe little shopkeeper, sharply spoken, as she went on with her  work.  "So I say," this from the other three,  who were now quite serious.  "He'd better not come back here,"  Bald tbe sister Lize.  "He never will probably,"  "Wbo employed the widow?"  "Nobody knows," said tbe sister Serene. "Before she left town sbe had a  check cashed, an' It come from Riley  Brooke. Some think Martha Vaughn  herself knows all about it. Sb-h-h!  There goes Sidney Trove."  "Ain't he splendid looking?*  Ruth Tole had opened the door, and  tbey were now observing the street  and those who were passing In lt.  "One of these days there'll be some  tall lovemaklng up there at the Widow Vaughn's," said Lize.  "Like to be behind the door."  "I wouldn't," said tbe sister Sorene.  "No, you wouldn't!"

Do  You  Think   Men  Are at  Vain as  Women?  It has been ssa id that the vanity of  woman begins at the soles of her shoes  uud ends in the crown of her hat  Of course it was a man who said lt  and another man who repeated it to  another man. who wrote it in a letter  to another man. who told it to his wife,  who told it to a feminine relative, wbo  told it to one as a special secret Aud  yet they say that women have the monopoly of vanity and gossip!  Do not believe them, ladies. There is  as much vanity walking about tb.  world In coat and trousers as there Is  parading iu bodice nnd skirt.  Do you think that a man never looks  tn a.mirror?  You should peep Into the gentlemen's  cloakroom just before the opening of a  large function.  You see them, one after the other,  old and young, ugly nnd ���������well favored,  slide up to the mirror and tug at their  butterfly ties. stnoothjng out their shirt  fronts and tenderly replacing the few  stray hairs'* which have turned aside  from the level road of the partiug.  Note how carefully that baldheiuled  old man rakes a small pomatumed curl  over the shiny surface of his venerable  pate and twists up a pair of dyed mustaches.  It must be admitted that vanity in  matters of dress aud toilet is to a certain extent part of tbe duty of woman,  Her self respect is far more involved  in her personal appearance than Is that  of man. for well she knows that a woman is.judged by externals, while a  man stands to rise or fall rather by  what he bides within than by what he  shows outside.  But though man has fallen to sorry  drabs and grays and black and white,  his vanity of appearance Is not yet  dead. The tailor still has to know his  business better than the dressmaker,  and if a woman wishes to be particularly well and expensively clothed she  must go to a man's tailor wbo makes  woman dressing a side show, in his  business. ���������'���������    .  A  NOVEL  KEY  RACK.  Household-Keys-Suspeiided-From Rack  In the Hall.  The English custom of a key rack to  hang in the hall and whereon all the  keys of the household are suspended  Is fast gaining favor in American  country bouses. A pretty and novel  sort an improvement on the plain  square of wood covered with books, is  made as follows:  Obtain a piece of wood about an inch  and a quarter square, the length being  determined by the number of keys it  is to hold, and paint stain or enamel  lt. On the underside screw small brass  hooks for the keys to hang upon and  suspend from the wall by a piece of  ribbon with a bow on the top. At each  end of the wood fasten a rosette of  ribbon with streamers hanging down".  The wood will look very well painted  white, and it ts a good plan to paint iu  colors to match the ribbons tho name-  of tbe keys above the hooks on which  tbey are to hang. Tasseled cords might  be used instead of tbo ribbon already  suggested. The former, in fact would  be more serviceable, Inasmuch as lt  would not require renewing quite so  often,  A good use for tbls rack would be to  have the various members of tbe family bang their door keys upon It-each  person having a separate marked book  ���������-when returning bom*, for the night  .Thus the last person in would be able  to bolt tbe door, a cause of confusion  in many families.  Bishops Urge Steps Towards Immediate Reform.  The subject of Congo misrule was  discussed in the Upper House of Convocation of Canterbury, the Primate  of all England presiding.  A series of resolutions were passed,  expressing profound regret and indignation at the methods of administration in the Congo Free State, declaring that the members of that house  "felt keenly the burden that was cast  upon the conscience of England, as  one of the powers by whose consent  the Congo Free State was established  nnd its neutrality guaranteed, and  stating that the gravest responsibility  will lie upon the consenting powers  to bring to an end, in some 'wny,  abuses which are so'"crying, and which  may be of the most sinister effect  upon the relations between white and  colored races throughout the African'  continent, and upon the work intrusted to the Christian nations of Europe  for the service of civilization an<-  humanity.  British Government  Responsible.  The Bishop of South work., in introducing the subject, said the Conco*  State began on commercial, philanthropic and civilizing principles. T^e  British Government had eonsiderab'e  responsibility for it, and there was  ample evidence that things had gone  signallv ill.  Dr. Talbot went on to allude to the-  .upnression of the evidence of the-  royal commission, and directed attention to the facts contained in Mr.  Morel's book on "Red Kubber: Tli*  Story of the Slave Trade on the Congo." No do"bt a condition the m',ct  barbarous and terrible existed. To  get a certain amount of rubber o**t  of the popr natives, the most horrible  methodp had been resorted to. such*  as cutting off tbe hands, and triero  was a great system of hostages, these*  hostages being largely women.

Described  as  an  Abomination.  The Bishop of Birmingham spoke, in-;,  general support of what had fallen*  from the Bishop of Southwark. and'  the Bisbon of London pleaded for increased British consular representation in the Coneo Free State. Ther  ought to be prepared to back up the*  Government in any further sten which  they mieht wish to take with the view  to wining away this abomination-  from the face of the earth.  The Primate, in Btimming up the-  debate, said the House had dischare-  ed an imperative duty in calling attention to well-established , facts. In1  the last decade we seemed to have*  fallen into something which rivaled  it it did not exceed, the horrors of  the old slave trade.

Within an interval of one year he had acquired a  half interest in The Lacombe Advertiser, and in June, 1903. he took over  his partner's interest. Since that  time Mr. Schooley has continued to  be editor and proprietor of The Advertiser, and has been eminently successful in producing a paper that  has a distinctiveness of appearance  that commands more than passing  attention. The paper enjoys a liberal  advertising patronage, and has an  ever-increasing circulation throughout  the wide territory it servegj.  No person should gc from home  with****"*, a bottle of Dr. J. D.

SCHOOLEY  .Editor and Proprietor of the Lacombe  Advertiser  To Sunny Alberta the lure of the  ���������Golden West has been steadily calling the homeseeker from distant  fields. They have come from the  Mother Country, Continental Europe,  the Antipodes; and Eastern Canada  and the United States have also contributed their quota to the constant  stream of settlers who are rapidly  filling   up   this    Western   province.  : That the population is decidedly cosmopolitan can be readily believed,  and those who have a personal knowledge of the general class of people  who are now of the West, will admit  . that it has a generous share of the  brain and brawn that contributes to  the highest elements    of    Canadian :  citizenship.    In  the  building up  of  this new province the large numbers  ___vJ10_have_be_11_attracted--.across.-the-  border from the United States. have  been     a     most   important    factor.  Adaptability, genius    and enterprise  are the  accredited  characteristics of i  the average American, and he has a'  strong tendency to "make good" no  matter what may be his position in  life.   Certain it is that not a few have !  attained success in this new country  and  have    become    identified  with  many of the leading industrial undertakings.    It   is    not   surprising,  then, to find that many Americans  have engaged   in    newspaper work,  and that they are publishing some  of   the*  brightest of our provincial  weeklies.   Among the number is Mr.  F. H. Schooley, editor and proprietor  of the Lacombe Advertiser, of whom  this article is particularly concerned.!  Mr. Schooley was born on a farm  in Warren county, Iowa, in 1866.   In  1870 his father forsook the farm to.  take up the practice of law, and in  1872 entered   the    journalistic field, I  purchasing a half interest in a weekly j  newspaper at the county seat,   At a  very early age Mr. Schooley evinced  n great deal of interest in the print-,  ing art, and when he wns but six  years of ago jt was his particular de*  ' light to stand on a high stool and  set type from reprint copy.

Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are the  greatest blood-builder known to  medical science. They never fail to  make rich, red blood���������lots of it���������the  kind that brings health and strength  to the sufferer. They are a family  medicine���������good for the grandmother  or grandfather, the mother or father  and for the growing children. Thousands have found new health and  strength through the use of these  pills. As proof of their being a family medicine Mrs. Chas. Castonguay,  Michipicpten Eiver, Ont., says:  "My husband was ill for five months  and was unable to do any work. H_e  "made several 'trips t*o the Soo to  consult doctors and spent much  money on medicine but nothing helped him���������in fact he grew worse. He  could not eat much and the little he  did eat would not remain on his  stomach. His stomach was examined by X Kays and found to be in a  terribly "inflamed condition. After  remaining at the Soo for some time  under the doctor's care without finding relief he returned home discouraged and afraid he was going to die.  It was then Dr. Williams' Pink Pills  were recommended, and by the time  he had taken nine boxes he was perfectly well and able to go to work  again." Mrs. Castonguay continues:  "I have also used the Pills for female troubles and found them a, perfect medicine. My little one also  owes good health and a rosy color to  them."  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cure all  the troubles due to poor blood or  shattered nerves, such as anaemia,  rheumatism, dyspepsia, neuralgia,  St. Vitus dance, partial paralysis,  etc., simply because they make rich,  red, health-giving blood.

Among the vessels assigned to the  naval h-iiltia is one with a history.  It seems, says Appletun's Magazine,  that many years ago, when tt was the  custom for the insurance underwriters  to put up at auction vessels that had  been long overdue and not beard from,  a youug apprentice in Philadelphia  happened to atteud one of these auctions at which a large ship named the  Dorothea was put up fqr sale. The  vessel had taken aboard a very valuable cargo, which would go <>with tho  ship to the successful bidder, but thii  very fact that the property* was so  valuable had kept the underwriter.*!  from selling the craft until long after  lt had become generally believed that  6he was a total wreck. Consequently  the auctioneer cried the good ship  Dorothea many times without getting  a bid. Finally the young apprentice  jokingly bid $5, and. as nobody would  bid bi-her. the vessel and her cargo  were knocked down tb bim. Imagine  the astonishment of, the maritime'  world when the Dorothea was reported  sailing into Delaware bay. The apprentice sold his prize, for enough to  start him ln business, and for years  the house thus founded was one of the  leaders in enterprise and resources In  the Quaker City. But at all times the  head of the firm and his family successors made a point of owning and  operating a ship named the Dorothea,  which name also was always given to  the oldest daughter in each succeeding  generation.       ,  Shortly before the Spanish war, however, the then head of the house was  ln failing health, and tbe only hope of  saving his life, he was advised, was to  live at sea. Accordingly, he gave an  order to the Cramps for a large and  luxuriously appointed yacht to be  called the Dorothea, of course, and no  expense was spared in her construction  and equipment. Unfortunately, death  came to the owner before his yacht  was quite finished, and the. government  paid a fancy price for the Dorothea  early in 1S98.  t With the close of the war there was  no purely naval duty for which the  Dorothea was fitted, and yet the government did not wish to sell her. be-  cause-tbere-w-as-no-possibllityTof-get-  ting a price for her anything like what  she had cost. She was accordingly  laid up until the naval reserves succeeded In convincing the navy department that they were eutit'ed,to her.
