COPYRIGHT.      1005,      BY      LOTHROP      PUBLISHING      COMPANY  ��������� V'innttituMd ������  CHAPTER' III.  TELE harvesting was over In Brier Dale. It was near dinner  time, and Allen, Trove and  the two hired men were trying feats in the doorv.ird. Trove, then  a boy of fifteen, had outdone them all  at the jumping. A strange?, came  along, riding a big mare with a young  filly at her side. He was a tall, spare  man, past middle age, with a red,  smooth shaven face and long gray hair  that fell to bis rolling collar. He turned in at the gate. A little beyond it  his mare halted for" a mouthful of  grass. The stranger unslung a strap  that held a satchel to his side and hung  it on the pommel.  "Go and ask what we can do for  him," Allen whispered to the boy.  Trove went down the drive, looking  up at bim curiously.  "What can I do for you?" he inquired.  "Give me thy youth," said the stranger quickly, his gray eyes twinkling  under silvered brows.  The boy, now smiling, made no answer.  "No?" said tbe man, as he came on  slowly. "Well, then, were thy wit as  good as thy legs it would be o' some  use to me."  .I-. The words wore spoken witb dignity  in a deep, kindly tone. They were also  faintly salted with Irish brogue.  He approached the men, all eyes fixed upon him with a look of inquiry.  "Have ye ever seen a drunken sailor  on a mast?" he inquired of Allen.  ���������" "No."   ,  *,Welir^r,''"^^ian3reJ~stra'n'ger,~dis*=-  mounting slowly, "I am not that. Let  me consider���������have ye ever seen a co-  coanut on a plum tree?"  "I believe not," said Allen, laughing.  "Well, sor, that is more like me. 'Tis  long since I rode a horse, aa' am out  o' plaee iu tbe saddle."  He stood erect with dignity, a smile  deepening the many lines in his face.  "Can I do anything for you?" Allen  asked.  "Aye���������cure me o' poverty. Have ye  any clocks to ineud?"  "Clocks! Are you a tinker?" said Allen,  "I am, sor, an' at thy service. Could  beauty, me lord, have better commerce  than witb honesty?"  They all surveyed him witb curiosity  and amusement as he tied tho mare.  All bad begun to laugh. His words  came rapidly on a quick undercurrent  of good nature. A clock sounded tbe  stroke of midday.  "What, ho! The clock," said he, looking nt his watch. "Thy timo hath a  lagging foot. Marry, were I that slow,  ior, I'd never get to heaven!"  "Mother." said Allen, going to the  doorstep, "here Is a tinker, aud bo says  tbe clock Is slow,"  "It Boems to he out of order," said  bis wife, coming to the step,  "Seems, madam J   Nuy, it Is!" said  tho Btraugor.  "Did yo mind tho stroke  of it?"-  "No,''snld sho.  "Marry, 'twas like tho call of a dying  man."'  Allen thought a moment as ho whittled.  "Hnd I such a stroko on rao I'd���������I'd  think I wns paralyzed," tho stranger  added,  "You'd bettor fix It, thon," Raid Allen.  "Thou nrt wIho, good mnn," snld tho  ���������trangor, "Mind tho two hands on tlie  clock an' keep thom to their place or  they'll beckon thoo to poverty."  Tbo clock whs brought to tho door-  Itep, nnd all gathered about hlin us bo  went to work,  "Yo know a powor o' Serlptor," said  one of tho hired men.  "Serlptor," snld the tinker, laughing.  "I do, sor, nn' much of It according to  Uio good St. Wllllnm, Havo yo never  rend Shakespeare?"  vnnn who wit boforo him know any-  thing of the Immortal hard.  "Ho writ a book ,'Uotit iiuu'i Unoae  an' tho Injuns," n hired rami ventured  " 'Angola an' ministers o' grace de  fend us!'" tlio tinker exclalraod.  Trove Inughed.  "I'll glvo yo a rlddlo," said the tinker,  turning to hlra.  "How Is It tho clock enn keep a  sober fa co V  "It hns no oars." Trovo answered.  "Right," snld tho old tinker, smiling.  "Tbou art a Unowliig ytjutli. Read  Phnkespenre, boy-'ii littlo of hlra threo  times a day for tlm mind's sake. I've  traveled far in lonely places and needed no other company,"  "Ever la India*" Trovo Inquired,  Ue bad been rending of that far hind.  "I wns, sor," tho stranger continued, rubblug a Vied.   "I was Ovo  years" in India, sor, ai? part o'tfie time  fighting as bard as ever a man could  fight."  "Fighting!" said Trove, much interested.  "I was, sor," he asserted, oiling a  pinion of the old clock.  "On which side?"  "Inside an' outside."  "With natives?"  "I did, sor; three kinds o* them���������fever, fleas an' the divvle."  "Give us some more Shakespeare,"  said the boy, smiling.  The tinker rubbed bis spectacles  thoughtfully, and as he resumed his  work a sounding flood of tragic utterance came out of him���������the great soliloquies of Hamlet and Macbeth and  Richard III. and Lear and Antony, all  said with spirit and appreciation. The  job finished, they bade him put up for  dinner. ,  "A fine colt!" said Allen as they  were on their way to the stable.  "It is, sor," said the tinker, "a most  excellent breed o' horses."  "Where from?"  "The grandsire from tbe desert o'  Arabia, where Allah create i the horse  out o' the south wind. See the slender  flanks o' the Barbary?  See ber eye?"  He seemed to talk ln that odd strain  for the mere joy of it, and there was  In his voice the God given vanity of  bird or poet.  He had caught the filly by her little  plume and stood patting her forehead.  For a moment he led ber up and down  at a quick trot, her dainty feet touching the earth lightly as a fawn's.  "Thou'rt made for the hot leagues o'  the great sand sea," said he. patting  ,h6r_headJ_^AJbt-Jhy_ neck shall_be as  the bowsprit; thy dust as the flying"  spray!".,  "In one thing you are like Isaiah,"  said Allen as be whittled. "The Lord  God hath given thee the tongue of the  learned."  "An' If be grant mc the power to  speak a word in season to him that is  weary I shall, be content," said the  tinker.  Dinner oyer, they came out of doors.  The stranger stood filling his pipe.  Something In his talk nnd manner had  gone deep into the soul of the boy, who  now whispered a moment with bis father.  "Would you sell tbe filly?" said Allen.  "My boy would like to own her."  "Whnt, ho, tho boy! Tbe benutlful  boy! An' would ye lovo hor, boy?" the  tinker asked,  "Yes, sir," tbe boy answered quickly.  "An' put a ribbon in her forelock an'  a coat o' silk on her bnck, an', mind ye,  a man o' kindness in tbo saddlo?"  "Yes, sir,"  "Then tnke thy horse, an' Allah grant  thou bo successful on hor as many  times as there be hairs In her skin."  "And tho price?" snld Allen.  "Nam,������ It, an' I'll call thoo just."  Tho business ovor, tho tlnkor called  to Trove, who had led tbo fllly to her  stall.  "You, there, strike tho tents, Bring  mo the mare. This very day she may  boor me to forgiveness." ,  ...Trove brought tho uiqre. ,.*  ALLIGATORS SCARCE.  The  Demand   For   Their   Skins   Has  Nearly Exterminated Them.  "An alligator is a rare thing in the  southern states now," said 0. B. Bunge  of Pensacola, Fla. '  "Where they could be seen in bun  dreds ten years ago, dotting the banks  of tbe rivers and swimming in the  Florida swamps, the sight is now becoming a very uncommon one. The  great demand for their skins has practically exterminated the creatures, and  they will soon be as scarce as tbe  western buffalo. Some may still be  found in the Everglades and other  swamps, but they are rarely seen, as  they live in mudholes to which even  the Seminoles cannot gain access.  "The few that are captured are  caught by means of strategy, as the  open water shooting ls a thing of the  past. A strict, watch ls kept over  their holes, and the moment tbe gator  appears he is lassoed and dragged  bodily from bis home. It is a very  dangerous method while In the water,  and it requires the combined force of a  dozen men to drag an eight foot alligator to the mainland. Even when this  is done the captors are wary, as a  blow from the creature's tail would  seriously disable the stoutest man.  "An alligator Is slow and clumsy In  his movements, but can swing his tail  around in the twinkling of the eye.  The Indians generally wait until they  have the animal in a position where  he cannot use his tail and then sever  the ligaments with a well directed  blow of their sharp instruments. The  government hits taken the bounty off  tbe alligators, which in former years  was a great source of revenue to the  shiftless Crackers that inhabit the  swamps and make their living in the  easiest possible manner. The price of  the skins has become double what It  was a few years ago, and it will not be  long before the dealers w'll have to  find some substitute far the skin of the  alligator."���������Milwaukee Sentinel.

At one fell swoop the player  and his family drop comparative Iux-  .ury,_ease_and the ability to have all  CONSTABLE SELLER'S DIARY  Record of Hardship and Splendid Endurance by a Member of Northwest  Mounted Police���������Frozen Meat.  The qualities of the men who compose the Royal Northwest Mounted Police have often been demonstrated, but  rarely have fidelity, devotion to duty,  fearlessness, unselfishness, and Indomitable determination been manifested in  greater decree than was displayed last  winter In a. Journey made by Constable  Seller, amounting1 ln all to about 995  milea. The trip was made in company  of Interpreter Ford and an Eskimo  named Tupealock. It was undertaken  for the purpose of locating the whereabouts of a Scottish ship, the Ernest  William, and ascertaining her liatot'.lty  to the customs duty for supplies imported. Constable Seller probably receives pay to the amount of abiut $1.50  a day, but, without a murmur, he  entered upon and successfully accomplished a Jounajy attended by great  hardships, and which many *n explorer  would have been proud of relating. The  recital of Seller's trip is contained in  a dairy, which has Just been received  at the Mounted Police Department. Nothing more modest or t������naffected than  his account of the long Journey and the  difficulties met with and surmounted  could be Imagined.  Constable Seller, with his two companions and a dog team of ten, left  Fullerton, on the west coast of Hudson  Bay, on Feb. 21 last. They returned on  April 19, haying been exposed for two  months to the rigors of an Arctic winter. The only casualty waa a frostbitten leg of one dog that was left behind at Lyon's Inlet. On the way to  their destination and back Intensely  cold weather waa encountered, and  many blizzards. At night snow houses  would be built for shelter, called by  the Eskimos "Igloos." Herds of deer  were seen, and several were shot for  food. For a couple of days, however,  both men and dogs went on short ratlona. Had tt not been for falling In  with a party of natives they would at  one time have been in desperate straits.  For a great part of the journey the  food had to be eaten frozen, because  the alcohol and wood gave out.  Here are a few extracts which show  the nature of the hardships encountered on the Journey: "We have only fifty  pounds of deer meat, two pounds of  pemmican, and six pounds of boiled  meat for ourselves, and the ten dogs,  so we must find natives.

SILAGE FOR SHEEP.  Opinions of Feeders Do Not Agreo->  Amount to Give and How  to Give It.  A sheep grower of Indiana has the  following to say in the Indiana Farmer ln regard to the use of eilage:  "Some sheep growers are enthusiastic ln their praises of corn silage as  a food for sheep. On tbe other hand, a  large number do not think so well of  it. All those who have tried it have  agreed with reference to the wisdom of  feeding a moderate quantity to the  flock when tho silage has been properly cured*. On the other hand, quite  a number have found trouble whan  feeding it ln large quantities. On the  whole, lt is not to be considered as satisfactory food for sheep as field roots,  since, more especially when there is  much corn ln the silage, lt has a  tendency to produce a heated condition of the system, which with breeding ewes ls not desirable. It is not  well perhaps to feed corn silage to a  breeding flock more than once a day,  and when so fed the aim should be to  give them clover hay or alfalfa at  least once a day ln order to produce a  proper balance ln the ration. Iu cold  weather it is probably wiser to feed  the silage at noon than morning or  night. When exposed to such weather  for only a few minutes the temperature as cool as is frequently found In  sheep sheds will freeze more or lees,  or If it does not freeze It becomes very  cold. For this reason it is better to  feed it in the middle of the day In  cold weather, for at that time the temperature is usually many degrees  warmer than In the morning or evening. It Is not common to feed more  than two to four pounds of silage per  head per day to sheep, but some farmers who grow winter lambs feed as  much as that twice a day, more especially after the lambs have been born.  A great advantage of silage as a food  for sheep consists In its cheapness. It  furnishes the cheapest food that may  be fed to them, and when properly fed  there should be no fear of hurtful results from feeding silage well made."  AFTER HARVEST.  Importance of Saving Nitrogen Irt tho  * Ono thing we feel Inclined to talk /  about every year is the mistake of letting cornfields or other cultivated  ground-remain bare through the fall  and winter. A considerable loss of  nitrogen results from   this   practice.  After sumixer crojr^s^tffken--off-the-  processes of nitrification go on In the-  soil, especially if stable manure has  been used. Nitrification means the  process by which nitrogen is made  soluble or available. When made, over  into this form It Is quite easily washed out of. the-soil'and lost. When soil  is left bare after harvest considerable  loss will occur in this way, but when  some living crop ls growing on the-  ground thlB new crop will obtain most  of the nitrogen and save it for us.  This nitrogen problem ls the most im-  ! portent thing on our farms. We must  buy It In one form or another, and it Is  constantly struggling to get away from  us. It is the part of good farming to-  capture and save all we can. If nothing else can be done, sow rye on all  bare lands. If you cannot plow, harrow and seed. There are Bome exceptions to this. One Is where the sod Is  filled with white grubs, In that case  lt ls better not to seed, but to plow  and keep the surface well stirred  through fall and early In spring. The  constant cultivation Is the best method  of fighting these insects,���������-Rusal New  Yorker.  A Canadian Bred Ayrshire.

Lamb, whom the above  picture represents, and the subject of  this sketch, was born forty years ago,  in Gerrie, Ont., Huron county. There  .he attended school, and spent the  early years of his life.  At the age of eighteen he began  teaching school, and, after spending  seven years in that profession, graduating from the Clinton model and Toronto normal schools, he drifted into  mercantile life. Ten years ago he  came west, and settled in Plumas, a  village on the Lake Manitoba Railway and Canal Co., that had just  been surveyed. v  Three years ago, Mr. Lamb, almost by accident, discovered the rea-  jgon.why his own_and_other villages  were"only starve~d7 -~st"unt"517 little  places, compared with what they  -should be, if public affairs were conducted in accordance with the dictates of reason and common sense,  in a way that would secure justice  between man and man. Nothing so  disgusts him, as to hear people lament tlie fact that their town doesn't  grow, while at the same time, those  who build up, develop and enrich the  ���������country, are regularly penalized by  taxation, while the idle holders of  town lots or agricultural lands, reap  where others sow. Their holdings  are increasing in value, not on account of what the owners do, but on  ���������account of what others do, producing  nothing, but absorbing what others  produce. He believes in the Henry  George remedy for this state of affairs. When our reporter called, he  bad at the head of his paper, as. a  ���������text for that issue, a selection from  Henry George, which may be taken  as the Standard's political creed.  "We would take for the community  what belongs to the community, the  value attaching to land by the growth  of the community, leaving sacred to  the individual all that belongs to the  individual." In other words, ho ur-  ���������ges that municipalities should exempt everything from taxation except the community, value of land.  He thinks it too bad that people  should let the railway corporations  get tbe good of tbe town sites while  , the people tax themselves to death  ���������on thoir goods and buildings. He  thinka people stupid, not to got tbat  town site value by taxation, into  their treasury, for sohools, sidewalks,  local improvements, etc, Tbe population ol Plumas is only 200, but tho  country around would warrant a population of 1,000 easily. Mr, Lamb  says ho will soil out the Standard  just as soon as every industrious  farmer around hnu a nice comfortable borne, bis farm clear of mortgage, and a comfortable bank account, and In tlie meantime, be will  uso tho paper as a moans to show  pooplo what tbo trouble is.

OUrt CANNED MEATS.  Investigation  Into Canadian Products  Finds Them Generally Pure.  THe detailed report of Mr. Thomas  -Mat^arianjj^hlel^-aai^  partment of Inland Revenue, on the  eanned meats Investigation has been Issued. The samples obtained included  not only meats packed In Canada, but  also about an equal number of samples by manufacturers, of the United  States. The latter were obtained from  dealers in Canada, but as regards Canadian products they were taken not  only from retailers and wholesale merchants, but also at the factories. The  samples were obtained in the course of  June and July, the number from the  various inspection    districts being aa  follows: A  .'������������������ **  Nova Scotia .,..������������������>........,..��������������������������� tl  Prince Edward Island  it  New Brunswick  27  Queoeo  ������������������������   ,,,,....*.,,.....

The latest innovation ov' the Canadian Pacific for the convenience of  travelers oh its lines is a quick lunch  car, and lt is said to foe proving immensely popular.. The new car Is a  regulation seventy-two foot diner, but  Instead of being equipped with tables  and seats for thirty-six people lt is  furnished with a lunch counter which  Will afford accommodation fur fifty or  more people at one time, Just as ln the  best equipped quick lunch counters on  city business streets.  The car is a marvel of economy ln  space and will be used chiefly for pilgrimage* and long distance excursion  trains, which carry more people than  oould possibly And accommodation in  tfce ono or two dining cars that are  oarrled by a big train.  Tho now lunch car Is equipped with  oold storage and a big cooking rango  of the 'familiar grill room hooded type,  and behind tho counter there Is plenty  of room for tho cooks and attendants.  Moreover, the car has a cellar���������-an unusual equipment for a railroad train.  Tho cellar Is only two or three feot  deep, but It Is woll refrigerated, and  has accommodation for a quantity of  provisions, enough for a two or threo  day-V run. The interior of tho counter  is fitted up with cold storage facilities  ���������for oarrylng milk and other porishablo  foods.

Wlteat Bernhardt Warn Pooled.  Sarah Bernhardt once fell victim tod  sudden attack of homesickness wbi]������  she was traveling In eastern Europe.  She announced that she was going back  to Paris immediately. Bucharest waa  the nest city .n tbe route and Bern-  hardt's Impresario at once sent tbe following telegram to his advance agent,  Who was then In the Roumanian capital ; "Wire me immediately as follows:  'Nobility and leaders society preparing  magnificent reception. Minister of fine  arts will be represented station. Torchlight procession, massed bands. Wire  exact hour arrival,'" This telegram  was duly sent and the Impresario  showed It to the actress, who forgot her  homesickness In view of the magnificent reception awaiting her. When  they arrived there were sixty solemn  gentlemen in evening dress, witb many  decorations, on the platform, there  wero torches, flags and flowers, massed  bands played, the "Marseillaise" and  the triumphal procession started for  the hotel. "Are you not coming with  us?" said the impresario to his advance  agent, who showed signs of remaining  at the station instead of going to the  hotel, "No," he said. "I must look  after tbe nobiMty and leaders of so-  ^lelyT^Tr^m^ffald'they'will"bolt~with"  their, dress clothes." But tbe actress,  so the story goes, never guessed that  the sixty great >.n at the station were  supers hired bj the advance agent at  86 cents a head.  Life Savins*; at Fires,  If lives are in danger at a fire tt Is  a universal rule tbat life saving takes  precedence over Are fighting. If flra  escapes ara lacking or seriously obstructed all hands devote their entire  energies t the work of rescuing by  raising ladders, by forcing a passage  through smoke filled hallways or by  otber emergency means. Life nets are  aproad and held ready for thoso who  have not tho nerve to wait for their  rescuers. Llfo saving consumes valuable timo which could be applied to advantage in fighting tbe flames, nnd the  probable necessity for expeu...ng this  time, governU as It is by many considerations, plays an Importaut part'In  studios of underwriters. Occasionally  pompier ladders or window scallna Iad������  dors ure used In emergencies for mak>  Ing rescues. Those furnish thrilling  Incidents for the newspapers, but are  Jess efficient, slowor and a grout deal  more dangerous both to the firemen  anil the rescued than tbe plain or extension ladders.���������Insurance Euglueer-  Ing.

An apparatus for measuring the seventy millionth part of an inch has  been made by Dr. P. Shaw of Nottingham University, England, says Technical World Magazine. It works upon  the principle of electric touch and consists of a fine micrometer screw and  six levers. The apparatus Is so sensitive and delicate that it is impossible  to manipulate it before an audience.  It is hung 'by rubber bands, covered  with thick felt, and must be worked  at dead of night, when there is no'"traffic or factory working. The smallest  distance that this mechanism measures  is about the distance between a solid  -.and-a-IIquid-moleeu!e.���������Dr.���������Shaw's-ln-  vention was first made in 1900, but its  great improvement of late has made lt  the wonder of physicists throughout the  world.  .AMtt.t...  ������MM M ***MJr������.

He  ls an adept with the pipes and although  only a few weeks in Ontario has already won considerable reputation for  his shrill skirls on the national instrument of Old Gaul.    Thus lt happened  that    when    a    certain    Presbyterian  church contemplated a concert it was  arranged that the piper should bring his  pipes after the concert had started, and  assuming his most military air, march  in state into the schoolroom and fairly  eleotrlfy the audience..*. *;������������������ The..night .of  the concert arrived,   -nut   the   Scotch  piper failed to appear.    In the meantime the Scotchman had clothed himself with his kilts and started for the  church���������-When-he-reached-a'ohurchrhe-  started the pipes to work, and, proud  as a peacock, he   marched   into   the  chu*oh.    He was fairly making the  pipes scream with'"Cook o* the North."  When he had finished his lay, there waa  no tumultuous applause. He was somewhat bewildered. At last, the minister  informed the Scotchman that as the  meeting was a prayer meeting , such  frivolous tunes and such, sounds did  not add to the feelings of devotion that  should be manifest at a prayer meeting.   Then the Scotohman walked out  into the night and gently kicked himself home.   As he had not been long  in the city he had made a mistake In  the church, and Instead of going to a  Presbyterian concert, he had wandered  into a Baptist prayer meeting,  Music is all right at a prayer meeting, but The London Adver-tlper savs  that the bagpipes as a piety builder axe  not muoh good.

PROMINENT  ARTIST  AND BILEANS  Says They Cured Him of Pain After  Food, Belching, -Constipation and  Weakness ��������� He Was Gradually  Losing Weight but has Now Regained It. y  One of the most impressive cures  of indigestion and allied ailments  ever reported has just been effected  by Bileans in Toronto. The subject  is Mr. Arthur R. Hand, a prominent  teacher of painting on china, leather,  glass, etc., residing at^ Woodgveen  Place, Toronto.  As a teacher of painting, Mr. Hand  has made for himself a wide reputation, but his work was interfered  with considerably by acute attacks  of digestive disorder.   He says:  "I suffered agonies for months previous to taking Bileans, resorted to  ^liklaSaldf.'" remedies, bjjnV found only  temporary; relTefT*, The indigestion"  came on quite suddenly, soon after  eating, and caused me terrible pain.

This increase, too, is not useless fat,  but sound, healthy flesh:"  Not only for indigestion, but for  constipation, piles, general debility,  anemia, female ailments, rheumatism,  blood impurities, liver nnd kidney  complaint, headache, dizziness, wind,  etc., Bileans are widely recommended.

LEADING SLOWLY  TO PARALYSIS  Nervous Diseases Can Be Early Detected and Cure  Brought About by Using  Dr. Chase's Nerve Food.  It is customary to consider paralysis, insanity and other diseases of the  nerves as afflictions which come upon  a person without warning and which  are, therefore, unavoidable.  As a matter of fact such results are  preceded by months, if not years, of  symptoms which point to an 'exhausted condition of the nervous system.  These symptoms are such, however,  that many pass them by as not being of serious concern and thinking  that they will wear away of themselves. .    "*.

The doctor pronounced it a had case  as I had no power in my tongue and  left leg, I remained in that condition for six months without obtaining benefit from the doctor's prescriptions or other'medicines.

AT least one pretty hatbox is included ln many a present-day trousseau; for even haiboxes have
come under the Influence of the
decorative ideas which are giving a
touch of beauty to the most utilitarian
things The plain, ugly bandbox of a
few years ago has disappeared. The
prettiest things are made with the same
ugly box for a foundation, but with its
ugjlness hidden away beneath any one
of a hundred materials, ranging from
, the least expensive cotton stuff-to the
richest silk.
Inside it is probably fitted up with a
fat little cushion, sewed firmly to the
bottom of the box,  to which  the  best
put away. That same cushion, by the
way, is a great Institution, for it keeps
the hat brim in shape, a thing which is
impossible with the ordinary* flat surface
and a tilted hat.
Paper is more often used as a covering
than anything else, and wall paper at
that, a pretty conceit being to use a bit
pf the wall paper with which your room
Is papered'. With a good'paste���not too
wet, or the paper Btretches and stains
hopelessly���and a broad, flat brush to
apply it with, covering a hox is a short
hour's work, with very gratifying results.
Paste the top of tho lid on before
cutting the edges to their proper size,
and then slash them or cut narrow V-
" shaped bits out, at regular Intervals
all the way round, and ease the divisions over the rim, turning them up
on the wrong side to make a neat finish. Or they may be cut Off rather
short, Just enough to make a "seam"
over the turn, and a narrow atrip
pasted around the lower rim.
In this case the strip should bo
Bllghtly wider than tho rim, tho upper edge fitted neatly to the edge of
the top, the lower slashed und turned
under so that no white edge may show
in the finished work,

The Return of the
Picturesque Old!
ONE of
the prettiest of
all the
handbags Paris
has sent over is
really a reticule,
the qua in test,
most interesting
thing i m a g i liable, and a true
copy of one of
the reticules which were in fashion
in Louis XVTs time.
Boing nothing more difficult
than bead embroidery, it is an easy
tiling to make at home, even the
mounting upon the metal top mado
comparatively easy by the new
tops, pierced as they are for sewing through.
The bag may bc made of silk,
with only the design embroidered
in gilt beads, or the silk foundation may be entirely hidden by
an embroidery of white and gold
beads, the white ones filling in
every bit of the design picked out!
in gilt. -\
In the reticule shown, both the
design itself aiid the gilt beads are
eloquent of Empire influences, the
���wreaths the famous typical ones
which occupy so prominent s. place
in decorations of the Empire
I period.

You may combine three

same gown, and rest content, for !
you are in the fashion. y
If you possess a bit of Chantilly
or Spanish lace, which has beer. '
stored away for generations, get it(
to wear it. If you have no such
heirlooms, the modern maker can,
supply the want, for never in the
history of lace making have more
beautiful "antique patterns" been

Black is extremely popular, and
one of the absolutely new offerings
of the season is a black Irish

Speaking of the halibut fishing, and the New England  Pishing Co., Mr Sloan pointpd out  that the fish shipped by these 'peri-;  ��������� that consequently the U.S. duty of  lc. per lb. was evaded, thus giving  tbe N. B. Co. the advantage over a  Canadian undertaking on the same  lines of a cent a pound on the price  of their fish.   The halibut catch of  1906, he said, amounted to 22,000  tons of which probably 20,000 tons  were shipped t" the Eastern market,  This vast monopoly is held, and enjoyed by this Company by virtue of  the privileges allowed them oy the  Dominion Government in the matters of harbor facilities, the purchasing in Canadian ports of bait, gear  and supplies, and fhe evasion of the  duty before mentioned, to the .otal  and utter exclusion of Canadian  enterprise.   He further pointed out  tbnt tbe disbursements of this Company wore considerable, amounting  roughly to  $25,000 per  ym for  freight charges, and $25,000 ior sup  plWfi purchased, and presumably on  account   of  these  dhsburBomontu,  the was e reluctance on the part of  many to deal with the matter, and  it, to a certain extent effected in  neutralizing criticism   as   to   Uv>  privileges extended under thif Or  der in Counoil, and the position of  CARDOF THANKS  The under signed desires to thank  all those whe bo kindly extended  their sympathy and assistance in  his late bereavement.
