Mlsa  S'mantba, unable longer to  bear the unusual strain of danger and publicity, went away to bed  soon after supper. Tunk Hosely came  in with a candle about 9.  "Waal, mister," said he, "you ready  V go V bed?"  "I am," said Trove and followed him  to the cold hospitality of the spare  room, a place of peril, but beautifully  clean. There was a neat rag carpet on  the floor, immaculate tidies on the bureau and wash table and a spotless  quilt of patchwork on the bed; but,  like the dungeon of mediaeval times,  It was a place for sighs and reflection,  not for, rest. Half an inch of frost on  every window pane glistened in the  dim light of the candle.  "As soon as they unlock my door I'll  come an' let ye out in the mornin',"  Tunk whispered.  ���������'Are tbey going to lock me ln?'r  "Wouldn't wonder," said Tunk soberly. "What can ye 'spect from a couple  ������' dummed ol' maids l|ke them?"  There was a note of long suffering  In his half whispered tone.  "Good night, mister," said he, with a  look of dejection. "Orter have a nightcap er ye'll git hoar frost on yer hair."  Trove was all a-shiver in the time it  took him to undress, and his breath  came out of him in spreading shafts  of steam. Sheets of flannel and not  less than half a dozen quilts and comfortables made a cover, under which  the heat of his own blood warmed his  body.      He    became    uncomfortably  "Tt's sTck** ?m sure it's sick," said  Miss Letltia, her voice trembling.  "S'mantba, can't you do something?"  Miss S'mantba calmed herself a little and drew near.  "Jes* like a wil'cat," said Tunk  thoughtfully. "Powerful, too," he added, with an effort to control one of the  kicking legs.  "What shall we do?" asked Mlsa Letltia.  "My sister had a baby once," said  Tunk, approaching it doubtfully, but  with a studious look.  He made a few passes with bis hand  ln front of the baby's face. Then he  gave it a little poke in the ribs tentatively. The effect waa like adding insult to injury.  "If 'twas mine," said Tunk, "which  I'm glad it ain't, I'd rub a little o' that  boss liniment on his stummick."  The two old maids took tbe baby Into  their bedroom. It was .an hour-later  when Trove came back. Tunk sat  alone by the kitchen fire. Ther* was  yet a loud wail in the bedroom.  J'Wha't's the news?" said Tunk, who  met him at the door.  "Drunk, that's all," said Trove.; "I  took this bottle, slung shot and bar of  iron away from him. The woman  thought I had better bring them with  me and put them out of his way."  He laid them on the floor in a corner.  "I got him into bed," he continued,  "and then hid the ax and came away.  I guess they're all right now. When I  left he had begun to snore."  "Waal, we ain't all right," said Tunk,  pointing to the room.    "If you can  aware of the presence of his head and  face, however. He could hear stealthy  movements beyond the door and knew  they were barricading: it with furniture.  Long before daylight a hurried removal  of the barricade awoke him. Then be  beard a rap at the door and the excited  Voice of Tunk.  "Say, mister, come here quick!" it  tailed.  Sidney Trove leaped out of bed and  Into his trousers, He hurried through  the dark parlor, feeling his way around  a clump of chairs and stumbling over  a sofa. The two old maids were at the  kitchen door, both dressed, one holding  a lighted candle. Tunk Hosely stood  by toe door, buttoning suspenders with  one hand and holding a musket In tho  other. They were shivering and pale.  Tho room was now cold.  "Hear tbat!" Tunk whispered, turning to the teacher.  They all listened, hearing a low,  weird cry outside tlie door.  "Soun'a t' me like a raccoon," Miss  S'mantba whispered thoughtfully.  "Or a lamb," BUid Miss Letltia.  "Er a painter," Tunk ventured, bla  ear turning to catch tho sound,  "Lot's open the door," said Sidney  Trove, advancing.  "Not me," said Tunk firmly, raising  bis gun,  Trove had not time to act before  thoy hoard a cry for help on tho door-  Btop. It wns tho voice of a young girl,  Ho oponed tho door, and thero stood  Mnry Leblanc, a scholar of Linley  school and tho daughter of a poor j  Frenchman. Sho en ino In lugging a baby wrapped In a big shawl and both  crying.  "Oh, Mist Tower," aald she, "pa haa  come out o' tho woods drunk an' hai  threatened to kill tho baby! Mn wants  to know tf you'll keep it here tonight."  Tha two old maids wrung their hands  witb astonishment and only said "yi"  "Of course we'll keep it," said Trovi  ti bo took tbe baby.  "I must hurry back," said tbo girl,  now turning witb a look of relief.  Tunk shied oil and began to build a  fir*, Miss S'mantba sit down weeping,  tbo girl ran away in the darkness, and  Trove put tht baby In Miss Lotltla's  arms,  "I'll wn ovor to Leblanc'a cabin,"  sa'.A tt, setting hia cap and coat  "They're baring trouble tsver there."  He left thom and hurried ott on bis  way to tbt little cabin.  Loud cries of tbt baby rang In that  abode of silence. It began to kick and  *H-������tt ^1*1 dclccxlsoml energy. Pscr  Miss Letltia bad tbt very look of panic  in ber fact. 8ht clung to tbe fierce little creature, not knowing what to do.  Miss 8'mantha lay back In a flt of hys-  terics. Tunk advanced bravely, wltb  brows knit, and stood looking down at  tht baby.  "T.������rd, thii ia awful!" aald be. Then  a tli ought struck hitn. "I'll git some  milk," ht shouted, running Into tbt  buttery.  The baby thrust tbt cap away, and  It fttt noisily, tbt milk streaming over  ������Mi r\z,<nn������t - I  T"     There stood Mary LebUtriA.  conquer that thing you'll do well. Poor  Miss Teesbyl" he added, shaking his  head.  "What's tbe matter with her?" Trovt  Inquired.  "Kicked in the stummick till she dun-  no where she Is," said Tunk gloomily.  Ho pulled off his boots.  "If ������he don't go lame t'morrer I'll  miss my guess," ho added. "She looks  a good deal like Deacon Haaklna after  be had milked tho brlndlo cow."  Ho loaned buck, ������no foot upon the  stovo hearth. Shrill cries rang in the  old house.  " 'Druthor 'twould hov boon a paint*  cr," said Tunk, sighing.  "Why 00?"  "Moro used to 'em," aald Tunk sadly,  Thoy listened a whllo longer without  ipoaklng.  "Yo can't drlvo It, ner coax It, ner  aenro it away, ner do nutliln' to It,"  laid Tunk pronontly,  He roae and picked up tbo things  Trovo had brought with blm. "I'll take  these to tho bnru," said bo. "They'd  have a flt if they was t* sot 'tm. What  be they?"  "I do not know what they are," aald  Trove.  "Won! j" said Tunk. "Tbey'rt quatr  folks, tbem Frenchmen. Tbls looks  like an iron bar broke In two In tbt  middle."  He got his lantern, picked up tbt bottle, the slung shot and tbt Iron aud  went away to tbt barn.  Trove went to tbo bedroom door and  rapped aud was admitted. He went to  work with the bnby. and aoon, to hi*  joy, it lay asleep on th* bed. Tben bo  loft Uio room on tiptoe ond a bit weary.  "A vory full day." ho said to himself  ���������"teacher, counselor, martyr, constable, nurse! I wonder what next?"  And aa he went to bis room bo beard  Minn tt mniitha any to her slater, "I'm  thankful it's not a boy anyway."  A  CHAPTER XVI.  LL wore In tbelr seats, and tbt  teacher bad called a class.  Carlt Homer came te.  "V'.*>������ tt*n mfnttttw late."  said the teache?f%       '""���������  "I have fifteen cows to milk," tho boy  answered.  "Where do you live?"  " 'Bout a mile from here on the Bead  plains."  "What time do you begin milking?"  "'Bout 7 o'clock."  "I'll go tomorrow morning and help  you," said the teacher. "We must be  on,time. That's a necessary Jaw of the  school."  At a quarter before 7 in the morning  Sidney Trove presented himself at the  Homers'. He had come to help with  the milking, but found there were only  five cows to milk.  "Too bad your father lost so many  cows���������all in a day," said he. "It's a  great pity. Did you lose anything?"  "No, sir."  "Have you felt to see?"  The boy put his hand in his pocket.  "Not there���������it's an inside pocket;  way inside o' you. It's where you keep  your honor and pride."  "Waal," said the boy, his tears starting, "I'm 'fraid I have."  "Enough said. Good morning," the  teacher answered as he went away.  One morning a few days later the  teacher opened his school with more  remarks.  "The other day," said he, "I spoke of  a thing it waB very necessary for us to  learn. What was it?"  "To obey," said a youngster.  "Obey what?" the teacher inquired.  "Law," somebody ventured.  "Correct We're studying law, every  one of us, the laws of grammar, of  arithmetic of reading,, and.so on. We  are learning to obey them. Now I am  going to ask you what is the greatest  law in the world?"  There was a moment of silence. Then  the teacher wrote these words in large  letters on the blackboard, "Thou shalt  not lie."  "There ls the law of laws," said the  teacher solemnly. "Better never have  been born than not learn to obey it. If  you always tell the truth you needn't  worry about any other law. Words are  like money���������some are genuine, some  are counterfeit. If a man bad a bag  of counterfeit money and kept passing  lt, ln a little while nobody would take  his money. I knew a man who said  he killed four bears at one shot  There's some that see too much Wben  they're-looking-over���������thelr-own���������gun-  barrels. Don't be one of tbat kind.  Don't ever kill too many bears at a  shot."  After that in the Linley district a  man who lied was said to be killing too  many beara at a shot.  Good thoughts spread with slow but  sure contagion. f There were some who  understood the teacher. His words  went, homo and far with them, even  to their graves, and how much farther  who can say? They went over the  bills, Indeed, to other neighborhoods,  and here they are, still traveling, and  going now, it may be, to the remotest  corners of the earth. The big boys  talked about this matter of lying and  declared the teacher was right.  "There's Tunk Hosely," said Sam  Price. "Nobody'd take his word fur  nutbltt'."  "'Less he was tf Bay he was a fool  out an' out," another boy suggested.  "Dunno as I'd believe blm then,"  said Sam, "fer I'd begin t' think be  knew sutbin'."  A little girl came In crying one day.  "What Is the trouble?" said tho teach'  er tenderly, as be leaned over and put  bis arm around her,  "My father ls sick," said the child,  sobbing.  "Vory sick?" tho teacher Inquired.  For a moment she could not answer,  but stood shaken with sobs,  "Tho doctor suys ho can't live," said  she brokenly.  A solemn stillness fell In tho littlo  schoolroom. Tho tenehor lifted tho  child and held her close to his broad  breast a moment.  "Bo bravo, Uttlo girl," said bo, patting her bond gently. "Doctors don't  always kuow. He may be bettor tomorrow."  Ho took the child to her seat and aat  beside her and whispered a moment,  bis mouth closo to her ear. And what  bt said nono knew save tbt girl herself, wbo ceased to cry In a moment,  but n*r^pjjaed tp ������������tf opibfit It  ,(To Bt Continued.)  * _���������__^____  Vmtitmej Ott Plrts.

Perhaps the most desolate spot on;  earth is a tiny storm swept islet in <  Bering sea nearly midway between |  Alaska and Siberia. Nearly fifty miles;  from the nearest land, King's islaud is  a barren rock, so steep that,np beach  landing can be found. Her* ou the  southern side, perched like nests above  the roaring surf and secured to tht  rocks by walrus thongs, are the skin  dwellings of the walrus hunters. Hero  the sun is never shining, the sea never  smooth. Cold, chilly fogs enshroud the  place in summer, while the frequent  and furious gales that sweep through  Bering,strait nt all seasons render the  narrow summit uninhabitable. Ice  locked during nine months of the year,  the natives depend entirely upon tho  seal, walrus and whale as a means of  existence. During the brief summer a  stray whaler may visit the Islaud for  a couple of hours, but this is tho role  communication with the outer world.  The King's islanders are closely allied  to the Alaskan Eskimos. They aro a  fine, hardy race, inured to daily dangers and privations, and are reckoned  the best and bravest sailors in Bering  sea. Their boats of walrus hide will  carry from twenty to thirty persons la  a mountainous sea.  BOBBY ON THE HUMAN BODY  Strange Fuels.  "I have eaten mutton cooked on a  Are of broken mummy," said the Bailor. "It was In Egypt, and the mummy  was stolen out of a tomb. Them natives Is always stealin' mummies.  Tbey sell them in pieces to tourists,  and what pieces they can't dispose of  otherwise (hey throw into the bin for  fuel. Mummy burns like t'nder, but  It's a ghastly fuel. It Is as ^hftstly a  fuel as the shoe lasts what they burn  In the shoemakin' town of Lynn, where  the old fashioned nnd discarded lasts  glowin' in the grates look to you like  amputated human Trilbies. Ibeen ln  tannery towns where the fuel is leather chips. This fuel smells and smokes.  It clinkers, too, formln' Itself Into big,  solid chunks what have to be broke up  with tbe poker every little while. In  British Columbia, where tish is as plentiful as air, they burn dried flsh wheu  there's no wood handy. The oil in the  fish causes tbem lb burn well, but tho  smell of this flsh fuel ain't to no whlto  .man's.taste.!! ,   Pawnshop Art Sales.  "One of the most Indefatigable painters ln Philadelphia has almost exclusively a pawnshop trade," said a pawnbroker the other day while discussing  the many tricks of his biislness. '"He  has been working tbls market/* he continued," "for* almost foiilr years. I believe I was his first customer. He was  reduced to the point where his ouly  capital was a lot of pictures that he  could not sell. In his extremity ho  came to me.

A Juvenile Euay Containing  Some.  Hitherto Unpubllahed Information.  The human body was first supposed'  to be made up of 208 bones, but later  discoveries have developed the fact  that lt contains 208 bones and an appendix. An appendix is something:  which ia added on, like a postscript on  a woman's letter, and means about ar  much. Its principal use ls to afford a>  revenue for doctors and surgery specialists. Operations on the human system are the correct thing ln polite bo-  clety.

In    the  spring, bad   blood   shows    itself   in  ."anany ways.   In some it breeds pim-  Irples and eruptions.

At this period  of the year many adults suffer acutely from these painful outbreaks.  When boils, ulcers, etc. occur on  children it is pitiful to see the little  ones suffer.  Mrs. E. Holmes, of 30 Guise St.,  .Hamilton, is grateful for what Zam-  Buk did for her little boy when in  this pitiful plight. She says: "He  suffered from Spring eruptions and  then boils broke out on his neck. I  tried blood purifying remedies, but  nothing seemed to do him the desired good. The boils got worse and  I could not send him to school. We  tried a sample of Zam-Buk and it did  him a little good, so I bought a 50  aent box. The result was really  amazing. Inside a week's time the  boils had begun to dry up; atid ju  a very short time indeed every one  of them was healed."  ���������Zam-Buk���������is-ai-sure-cure���������-also���������for-  eczema, scalp sores, ringworm, poisoned wounds, chronic ulcers, chapped hands, cuts, cold sores, cracks,  festering sores, eruptions and pustules  due to blood poison, etc. It stops  bleeding and cures piles, fistula, etc.  Is antiseptic; an excellent "first aid."  Every home and farmstead should  have its box of Zam-Buk. All druggists and stores at 50e a box, or  from Zam-Buk Co., Toronto, for  pi-ice. 6 boxes for $2.50.

The reason is simple. The  back o������ the knee, as well as the front  of the elbow and wrist, the groin and  tlie armpit, contains nerves and  blood vessels which are less protected  thon those in other parts of the  body. The space behind the knee  contains two large nerves, a large  artery and ���������numerous veins and  glands, It is the pressure on these  nerves and vessels which is apt to  give rise to the various troubles  against which I give warning."  Tested by Time,���������In his justly-celebrated Pills Dr, Parmelee has given  to.the world one of the most unique  modicines offored to the public in  Into years. Prepared to meet the  want for n pill whioh could bo taken  without nausea, and that would purge  without pain, it has mot all requirements in that direction, nnd it is in  gonoral uso not only beenuso of these  two qualities, but because it is known  to possess alterative nnd curative  powers which placo It iu tho front  rank of medicines.  Curiosities of Coffee.  Coffee, as experts are aware, has a  very extraordinary property. It ls one  of the most absorbent matters In existence. Coffee beans placed in a damp  room nwell and absorb moisture till  they e-jrly double their weight Here  Is the chance of the dishonest grocer."  Not coutent with the amount of profit  made upon coffee, he places palls of  water !n a room with piles of uncovered coffee beans, and by swelling the  coffee adds something llko 50 per cent,  to'his profits. The flavor ft ruined, but  that does not matter to him. So absorbent Is coffee, not only of moisture,  but of gases and flavors, I hat shippers  of Brazilian coffee always stipulate  that the sacks of fresh Rio beans shall  never be carried on a steamer which  has raw hides as any part of her cargo.  These will taint the coffee more surely  than anything else and render it unfit  for use. The usehl side of this quality  of coffee ls that In a sickroom a handful or two of fresh roasted and ground  beans acts as an excellent purifier and  deodorizer. ...--��������� ,  ,    .ffHi'^'.f  At the Military Camp      %"*w  Pat���������"Who goes there?"

HAD A NASTY  BRONCHIAL COUGH  As an After Effect of Pneumonia���������Nothing  Proved Effective Until We Used  Dr. Chase's Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine  Many a mother can say, as does  Mrs. Harker in the following letter,  that Dr. Chase's Syrup of Linseed  and Turpentine has proved a "riend  to her in time of colds'with the little  ones. .  Mrs. Walter Harker, Sydenham,  Frontenac country, Ont., writes:  "Dr, Chase's Syrup of Linseed and  Turpentine has proven a friend *o  me in times of colds with my little  ones. I have tried many others, but  have found none just as good. My  little boy, about a year old, had  pneumonia, and was left with a nasty  bronchial cough,, but Dr. Chase's  Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine is  helping him wonderfully, and L am  sure it will cure him.  "We have also used Dr. Chase's  Kidney-Liver Pills with splendid results, and have great faith in all c!  Dr. Chase's medicries."  It may not have** occurred to you  that both bronchitis and asthma are  diseases of the nerves of the bronchial tubes and lungs, and that this is  why severe attacks of coughing   are  brought on whenever these nerves are  irritated by changing temperature,  the breathing of dust or emotional  excitement.  It is by its remarkable facility for  soothing the nerves and sheathing the  delicate coating that . Dr. Chase's  Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine has  proven so thoroughly effective as a  a cure for bronchitis and asthma. Its  power in these diseases is unquestionable.  Relief from coughing comes almost  immediately and by persistent use  cure is gradually and certainly  brought about.  When the system is greatly run  down it is advisable also to use Dr.  Chase's Nerve Food in order to assist in restoring vigor to the wasted  nerves.

SOME HEALTHFUL METHODS OF  -'   REDUCING FLESH  "By Dr. Emma E. Walker  Copyright, 1905. by A. S. Barnes & Co.  M-  ANT authorities advise the  drinking of hot water half an  ~hour~before���������mealsr~upon--aris���������������-  ing in the morning and beiore  going to bed at night. ������Cold water, however, offers a far greater stimulus to the  bowels,  and this  is a most important  Solnt in reducing flesh. The bowels' must  e kept in perfect condition. They must  carry off the waste matter- of the system so that the organs will not become  clogged.  Although; I do not wish to suggest any medicinal treatment, I am  a firm believer in the efflcacy of  a good dose of castor oil at ��������� least  once a month. It cleanses the Intestines and carries off all waste matter.  But you may say; "My bowels move  regularly every day���������why should I take  castor oil?"  I have seen so many cases of just this  kind which were in crying need of a  dose of the oil that I can have little  confidence in your good opinion of your  bowels. Many a time have X seen cases  of headache that had lasted oft and on  for several weeks entirely disappear  after this simple dose. ''  If you dislike to take It, then have It  fixed up at tho druggist's, either with  lemon juice or sarsaparilla���������you will  scarcely notice it���������or you may take it In  capsules.  Especially for tho fat girl is some  dally vigorous exercise necessary which  will cause perppiration. Walking, horseback riding, bag punching, tether tennis, fencing, all of these aro excellent.  A great secret of reducing flesh is "to  keep moving." Don't stop often to rest  yourself, but keep on going, and you  will soon pcrsunuo tho Bca\es to tip  at a moro respectable figure than vhey  have been doing of late,  Exorcise has two effects upon tho system; it Increases the process of. assimilation; It accelerates the process of dis-  Blmllation.  In othor words, If the stout girl exercises vigorously, her excoss of fnt Is  oxidized or burned up and she becomes  thinner,  She loses iho superfluous fat thnt was  a drawback to her body, while the thin  girl, by exorcise, puts herself Into a  condition of becoming bettor nnd moro  easily nourished, she oHslmllntes hor  food unci onnso'iuontly hooomoa plumper,  a condition which she no greatly desires,  ���������To reduce the abdomen:  Lio Hat on your back and slowly rnlso  both \cg8 to perpendicular position;  thon /nwor thom slowly to the floor.  ,Tma will make your abdomen vmall and  'l "** m.
