Several runaways occured on tho  street last week, fortunately without sorioui harm.

THE   NEWS,   CUMBERLAND,  BRITISH   COLUMBIA  ITCHING WAS SO BAD  GOULO NOT SLEEP NIGHTS  ���������oz*nia Spread Over the Body and Suffering Was Almost Indescribable  ���������Oured by  Dr. Chase's Ointment.  This letter will be appreciated by  persons who have suffered from itching skin disease. because it gives some  idea of the misery accompanying such  ailments. It tells of a remarkable  cure.  Mr. Wm. Castle, Eagle Hill, Alta.,  writes:���������" About Nov. 1st,, 1903, I  broke out with small red blotches on  my arms and they afterwards spread,  all over my body. was so itchy  that I could not sleep at nights for  scratching. I suffered untold misery  and was almost driven to desperation.  I tried everything at hand and my  friends recommended various remedies  all to no avail.  "When I began the use of Dr.  Chase's Ointment I had little hope of  relief but the result has been wonderful. From the first this preparation  gave relief from the dreadful itching  and it has now brought about a cure."  The day is past when people will  be satisfied with an internal treatment for itching skin disease.   It is  more satisfactory to apply an ointment and witness the beneficial results, instead of taking medicine and  hoping that in time the desired effects will be obtained.  This change of opinion has largely  come about through the extraordinary  cures being brought about by Dr.  Chase's Ointment. Eczema, salt rheum  psoriasis.tetter, scald head.and all the  dreadful itching skin diseases, which  torture children and grown people  alike, are not held in such terror  since the merits of this great ointment have become known.  By its healing, soothing, antiseptic  influence Dr. Chase's Ointment cleanses the sores, allays the inflammation  stops the itching, and heals the raw,  flaming flesh. In the most simple as  well as the most aggravated skin irritation or eruption, this ointment  13 certain to give highly satisfactory  results; 60 cents a box, at all dealers, or Edmanson, Bates & Co., Toronto. '  uicKens and Hall Cains.  In roting that Hall Cauine has been  writing a novel to do for the drink  traffic what Dickens did toy his novels  to reform the poor law administration,  a writer in The Liverpool Post points  out that Bill Sikes an*? the Artful  Dodger are rn^re real historical characters than all the nameless and forgotten wretches who actually liv<*>d ln  Dickens' time. This is not a new  thought, but it is one worth eniphas  izing. Pickwick existed on'ly in the  imagination of Charles Dickens, hurt he  and his foibles, his escapades and opinions are to-day exercising an Influence upon the world while thousands  of actual flesh and blood Pickwicks are  as absolutely out of-being and memory  as IS they had never existed. It is tho  consideration of things like this that  makes one see that after all H ls not  the producer and the captain of Industry who are 'doing things" in the world,  f>r they are simply following out a  line blazed by a thinker ln a past age.  Before a house can exist lit brick and  stems Jt must exist In the mind of the  architect. Dickens' house has stood  long and sheltered many, and it remains  to be seen whether Mr. Calne's sta-uc-  ture will be asi sound.  Heliotrope.  The name of the heliotrope comes  from two Greek words signifying  "twining toward the sun." It has  long been a belief that the flower of  the heliotrope turns, with tlie advancing day, so as to face the sun. In  some species of this plant this curious  practice is noticed.

Referring to place names reminds  one that the care of the Hudson Bay  Co. in seeing that its title ds spellsd  as above has led countless people to  refer to Canada's inland sea as Hudson's Bay. It is no more Hudson's  Bay than certain other natural features  are 'Hudson's River, or Mackenzie's  River. The proper name Is Hudson  Bay. It is so on the authorized maps  and in tthe standard geographies, and  It is specifically so designated by the  authority for settling such ma-tters in  Canada, the Geographical Board, Gentle reader! don't let people delude you  with the idea that to "speak proper" you must say Hudson's Bay.  Overtaxed Faith.  "Mamma, I've been praying every  night for a new doll." said little Dorothy, "and God hasn't sent it yet."  "Perhaps God doesn't think that you  r-eed another doll, dear," answered the  mother. ��������� \  "then why doesn't he tell me," asked  the little girl, "so I could pray for  something else?" ��������� Woman's Home  r.ompanlon. '  ���������nr Womld Ton UXeo Thla l*_ndry?  Prices are high in South Africa, and  bills for laundry are frequently exorbitant. Persian, Kaffir and Cape women do the work after a fashion. "One  usually pays $5 per month a head,"  says a woman correspondent, "and the  woman who washes for you takes everything for that, but is apt to vanish  for a month on end with your clothes.  Ton seek and find her after Infinite  difficulty and discover her in the bosom of her family, her husband and  sons arrayed in the clothes of your  mankind, if you have any, and her  daughter an(t herself In yours.

"Wow - wow-wow,"  walls Bobby, as he sadly  climbs the stairs. "I'm  glad my mamma hasn't  nasty, scratchy toenails,"  HAVE you played the game of  "Fishermen"?  Mark oft two lines across a  clear piece of ground (or across  the beach if you are at -the shore) about  , twenty-five feet apart. Then let all the  children count out to see who is to be  the fisherman.  The fisherman must stand between the  two lines of players and repeat the following rhyme:  "Swim, little fishes, from the river to  the sea!  Swim, little fishes���������one���������two���������three!"  At the word "three," .all the children  or fishes must run across his territory  to the land beyond their opponents'  line, and while they run, he (the fisherman) must catch_as_many_js h_e_can.   ~~~ThoW who "are caught now" Become  fishermen and help htm catch more fish.  The game goes on as before, the flsher-  hien all repeating the rhyme In concert  until all the fishes have been caught.  Now the game of ���������'King Caesar."  One player is chosen to be the King.  All the others form two rows, one at  each end of the ground, with a' line  drawn across the front of each row to  mark "den."  AH the players must keep within  their respective lines, and King Cnesar  stands in the middle, between the lines.  Any number of players can then rush  across from one den to the other, King  Caesar trying to catch one as thoy run.  lf he .catches one, he must succeed In  holding him while counting ten, the boy  meantime trying his best to break away.  But if he cannot, he then remains with  the King and helps him catch others.  If either den becomes empty, the  King goes into It,  nnd snys;    "Crqwn  the base; one, two, three," three tiroes,  lf no player from the other den can go  across to his den before he has finished, then he may choose>.some boy from  the other den to run across to his.  This boy must run, whether he. wishes  to oi not,' but may be supported by any  number of volunteer helpers, the King,  meanwhile, doing his best, to capture  him.  Then   there    ts    the   game   of   "Jolly  Miller."  "There was a jolly miller, he lived by  himself;  As the wheel went round he made his  wealth,  One hand in the hopper, another in his  bag,  As the wneel went 'round, he made his   -grate"��������������������������� r���������7=  There must be an uneven number of  players. All of the children, except one,  stand in couples, arm in arm, and singing this verse, march around in a circle,  each couple closely following the other,  'ihe odd child stands in the centre.  At the word "grab;" the children  marching on 'the inside of the circle  let go of tneir partners' arms -and  try to catch hold of- the one standing  immediately in front of their previous  partners. '������������������ - >''".'���������* *  Now, the child who has been in the  centre tries to secure one of the partners and thus get a place in the circle,  if he succeeds, the one.who was left  out must t;.ke the centVe, and the game  goes on us described.  "Fox and Goose" Is another good  game.  Mr. Fox takes his place in one end of  the room or lawn, while Mother Goose  gathers her little geese behind her in a  Tlie Ben Boy's Story.  t  Noah's Ark Party.    '  DRAW upon shoots of rather stiff  papor-u medium-weight water-  color paper Ih best-iis many  Pairs of tininiuls us there aro children  in the game. -L.nw also a Noah and  a Mrs, Noah-absurd, churn-shaped  figures llko the littlo wooden toys.

Don't be afraid that you will not do  It right. Let your imagination run riot.  Now mark a blaok cross very plainly  ���������n the door of the ark to designate tho  point of safety. Pin the sheet to thn  wall In an accessible placo and you are  ready for the game, which Is as follows:  Put Noah, his wife anil all the ani-  mnls Into a hot or bosket and let each  child draw one and write his or her  name In a book.

' The puppy was named Beggar, because he hogged so hard for everything ho wanted, The two pussies'  minion wero Bo-Poop and I*Spy, because thoy wore always playing hldo-  and-go-seok. Now, Boggur lost his mothor when ho was only throe days old, ana  he was brought up on milk, of which ho  grow so fond that ho would fairly pounco  upon the pan of milk before lt had been  quite placed on the floor.  ' Well, pussies also lovo milk, you know,  and It mado Bo* Poop nnd I-Suy most  unhappy to see big Beggar gobbling up  all the milk before thoy got a chance  to sue It, much ltws taste It,  _ But ono day, Just ns Beggar was about  to perform his usual greedy triok, and  tho two pussies luul begun to cry "Me-  ow*ow-ow*ow!

Gentlemen let  ladles have things first, and I'll teach  you your manners,"  Then the two niisslos settled down to  a delicious, unlntorrupted treat, while  Beggar sat disconsolately on his hind  Jogs nnd said ns plainly with his eyes  na you or l could with our lips, "wish  l was a lady." >  Game of Jolly Miller.

Then Mr. Fox and Mother Goose hold  the following conversation, , Mother  Goose beginning:  "What are you doing this fine morning?" v       .-,������������������'���������  ���������'Takim* a walk." v  "What are you after?"  "After an appetite for my breakfast."  "What will you have for your breakfast?" .  -���������   ���������-  "A fat goose I'll have for my breakfast."  "Where'll you get it?"  ."I see your little geese are handv, so  I'll satisfy myself with one of yours."  "Catch one if you can."  Then there is a lively scene,   Mother  Goose spreads out her arms and the llt-  _tle_ones_cling_tight._B_uL.they_jnusL_not'_  break, the line.  Mr. Fox dodges around and snatches  all the geese he can capture.  The game can stop here or can be continued, thus:  Having, put his captives in his den.  ' (located wherever he sees flt), Mr. Fox  can repeat his conversation with Mother Goose. Then, while he Is dodging  around trying to catch some of the  geese, his caDtives can make an at- '  .tempt to run back and join the Mother  Goose line again, lf they succeed in  doing so without being touched bv Mr.  Fox, they can stay there until recaptured.    ������������������'*...  But lf touched by him while trying to  escape, they must return to the den and  Walt for another opportunity to escape.  Two players Join hands, holding them  - up as an arch for the others to m.ireh  through.   All the players sing the two  following verses:  "Hark, the robbers coming through,  Coming  through,  coming through!  Hark,  tho robbers coming through,  My fair Jady! (or gentleman!)  What have the robbers dono to you,  llone to you. clone to you?  Whnt havo the robbers done, to you,  My fair lady? (or gentleman?)  Just ns tlio soconil vorso Ih finished  the player then going through the  arch Is stoppod, and ono of the players forming Iho arch sings the third  and  fourth  verses,  as follows:  You have stolon my watch and chain,  Watch and chain, watch and chain!  . You have stolen my watch and chain,  My fair lndy! (ar gantlen.nn!)  Hnlf-n-dnJlnr you must pay,  You must pny, you must pay!  I-Ialf-iwloJlar you must pav,  My fair lady! (or frrntleman!)  Then all sing tho fifth verso, as  follows;  Half-a-dollar wo cannot pay,  Cnnnot pny, cniinot pay'  Hnlf-a-dollar wo cannot pay.  My fair lady! (or gentleman!)  The last verso Is sung by tho ono  who sang tho third nnd fourth versos,  and lm seises tho nearest porson In  tho mnrciiing lino and makes him  prisoner as ho sings:  Off to prison  you must go, *  You must go, you must go, iff.  Off to prison you must go, v9  My fair lady! (or gontlemanl)    .  ii.r  The next time th������ othor player  forming the arch sings tho third,  fourth and sixth verses and takes tho  prisoner. In this way two equal sides  aro at last formed, and thon thoy  procood to tug against each othor,  and tho strongest sido wins tho game,  Divide by Four.  A boy Is sent to Iho grocer's for a  pound uf raisins, and on his way  homo moots throe other boys. How  many tlmoH did iho four boys go Into  thc pound?  SUPPOSE we first have something to  eat,  boys   and    girls.    Let's eat  knives   and    forks.     How?    Oh, .  that is th������ trick. -*.'-  Ask one of the friends present fo  lend you a knife, whicii you must cover  wiih both hands, the end of the handle excepted. And setting the point to  your eye, say, ������������������Somebody please  strike the knife wltht-hfs fist."  But nobody ���������will1,1 because it is such  a dangerous, thing to do. Then, setting your hnnd on the side of the  table, look about you and say:���������������������������V-What!  will nobody strike tt In?" Meantime, let the knife slip into your  lap, then make as if you would slap  it hastily into your mouth, or hold  with one hand and strike 11 (apparent-  ly the knife) wtth the other.  i Then make a few wry faces, saying: (  "Now let some one put his fingers into my mouth and pul1 It out."   *.  Whllo the folks are trying to make  out whether you are serious or are  simply plotting to bite their fingers,  you can spirit the knife into your  pocket and make the mystery seem  all the more mysterious when some  one finally investigates your mouth  and finds the knife Is not there.  Next, let's try the magic bell and  bushel. This is a fine trick If you do  it right.  The bushel must be turned neatly, like  the tnck eggboxes that you have seen,  in order that one may not eaBlly discover where it opens. And you should  have a false Ud to clasp on and off.  Upon the false Ud paste some birdseed. Then have a true lid to clasp  neatly upon the false one, and an artificial bell to go with your bushel.  You may make your bell of wood or  brass, it must be made to unscrew at  the top. that lt may hold as much seed  as your bushel will when It is tilled;  and you should have the handle of the  bell made with a spring, so as to let the  seed fall down at your word of command.  Work the trick as follows (be sure to  fill the top of your bell.with seed before you begin to perform, and hold the  bell by the handle): ���������    ���������    -1  "Ladies and gentlemen," you.,/should  say, "you see that I have nothing in my  bell nor in my bushel. Therefore, 1 will  fill my bushel with seed."  Then fill it and clap on the false lid.  (Nobody will know any better.) Then  ask anybody In the company to hold.the  bushel in his hands, and sav that you  will command tne seed under tne magical bell.  So. clasp the true lid on, and then  ring your bell; and, sure enough, the  seed will apparently have gone out of  the bushel Into the bell, to the mystification of the beholders.  Now let us try the mysterious egg  trick: ;  An   egg   can   be   shown   in   a   bottle with a mouth too narnr ��������� for it to  have passed through.   How did lt get  - there?   When an egg is soaked in equal  parts of strong acetic acid and water it  becomes softened, and may be pressed  into any form. Water will again harden  it. You might remork to your friends  tlmt you hnd at flrst thought of exhibiting the hen In-thnt bottle, but left that  trick for another occanlon.  Another good trick Is the flro-eater  trick:  Prepare a piece of thick string about  nine Inchus long by soaking It In a  saturated solution of nitre and drying.  It,   Wrap tho string In a plooo of tow  and Ignite It,   Hold It In the left hand;,,  with the right hand put some tow Into -  tho   mouth,  chew  It  nnd  appear  to*  swallow It.   Now take tho handful In.  which Is tlm string and put Into thc ���������  mouth, taking out at tlu* saini1 time,,  unobserved, tho plnco already fhowod,  Tuko  ii  breath  through  the nostrlle  and breathe It out through tho mouth..  llepoiit a f������*w times and smoko wlir  Iwsuo.forth, and on opening wide,the  mouth It will bo lighted up with a  glow.   Whon tho mouth Is shut and  the tow prossed together tho tire goes  out,  Next we will change a while flower  into a rod one:  This Is a performance suitable for  the garden or tlio drawing room. Tlio  dry potals of a whlto roso or any other  llowur must bo llrst ilolloutoly, nnd na  fur us possible uniformly, sprinkled  wllh aiillliif> crystals, Tho roso should  bo shaken so ns tn lonve as Uttlo na  possible visible; what there Is will bo  only trifling specks, Uy lirln������lng to  play on It n spray of onu do cologne  or other spirit from a vaporiser���������*  thosi* (oniiicti'd with n Anger ting on*  ablo tho porformiinrn to lie mo������l mysteriously accomplished���������'tho delloata  white petals onn bo promptly miffusod  with n rich crimson ������*!uf.h.

INTERESTING        INSTRUCTIVE  TO THE ELECTORS OE COMOX DISTRICT;  GENTLEMEN:  At the urgent request of a large-number of Electors, I consented to  allow my name to be placed in nomination for re-eleciion to Parliament, and having  received the nomination by unanimous vote, I take the privilege  of soliciting   your.  votes and influence in the coming Election.'*  If elected, I will support the McBride Government but will vote for any good measures that may be inirodi>ced for the benefit of the Province in general and this Dis-  tncl in particular.  1 will, if returned, advocate an advance in the rate of pay to those engaged ih Government road work.   A.s regards my local platform, 1 will do ail in my power for the  benefit of Comox District un-d iis .Settlers, and will promise, il elected, to call a   public meeting for the purpose of enquiring into the needs ofthe District before going to;<  ������uliametu.  As Comox is a District of great and varied resources, I will attend to its different  Requirements. The miner, logger, farmer and fisherman and representatives of all  other industries will receive my earnest attention.  Owing to the exceptional circumstances by which the City of Cumberland is put to  additional expense in providing schooling for children residing outside the municipal  limits, f may say that I have pressed the matter of a larger grant upon the Premier  and he has promised immediate relief.  -^���������Chaye'duringjny. past term of office always pressed the needs of this District and  have endeavoured to gefaTErgFapirrb^'^  sible, but if returned, owing to the much improved financial condition of the Province  I shall be in a position to secure much larger sums for that very needful work.  I will favor a continuance of Government grant in aid ot resident physician and  hospital for the northern endcf the District.  Gentlemen, I have lived in this District for the last 30 years and know your wants  especially those of the laboring class, which always have niy sympathy.  In conclusion, I once more appeal to you for your votes, and feel confident ot your  support at the Poll, therefore hope lo be returned as'your member.   "  r  Robert Grant*  CUMBERLANP, B.

CHAPTER XIX.  The words seemed to chill to the  heart's core the girl listening, outside. "Mother," she murmured, faintly, pressing her cold, white, tear-wet  cheeks fo the cold pane. But the  sighing of the wind among the trees  outside drowned it, and it did not  pierce the dull ears of the woman  lying on the couch, nor those of the  solitary watcher sitting beside her.  "I would like to have you raise me  in your arms, Duncan," she whispered, "so that I can look out of  the window and see the long stretch  of white road beyond. She will yet  come to tne up that long road, Duncan, and the feet that hurried so  gladly away will come creeping back.  They always do. I want everything  just as she left it when she went  away, Duncan; the holly-hocks nodding their great golden heads down  by the stone wall; the little beds, of  pansies all a-blpom; and���������and���������you  must not let any one disturb ; the  robin's nest under the caves of the  barn; she will be glad to see that  the young- ones have. come."  The man beside " the couch knew  that her mind was wandering. He  made her no answer, for he could  not tell her that the hollyhocks and  the pansies were dead, and that the  little birds had long since grown out  of their nest and had flitted away,  never to come back again.  How lovingly she always spoke of  the girl���������the girl who had deserted  her. in her old age for a stranger  with a handsome face whom she had  known but a, few short weeks. The  father's heart grew bitter against the  wanderer, wherever she might be,  and a muttered imprecation rose to  his lips, and he clinched his hard  -hands^He^ad^oy.eA,thc_Mil-laa: he  had never ;>ved anything- in his life  before, but when he saw the wife  whom he ���������had /wedded when both  were young, pining away of a broken heart because Of her desertion,  then all his love turned to hate  against Nova, and he often cried out  to himself as he paced,, the floor up  and down, that if he lost his wife,  never again, in life or in death,  would he look upon the girl who was  responsible for it.  To-night his wife scorned   to grow  worse so rapidly that he was frightened, Leaning over, he took the thin,  v wasted,   toil-worn hand in his,    caressing it softly.  ".; "Don't talk any more to-nfght,  'Marthy, about thc-se things," he said,  slowly, "an' to-morrow yo shall  hev the bod drawn close alongside o'  tlie window. I'm goin' out to sit by  the doorstop an' smoke my pipe,  even if It bo late. Ye can call mo if  yo wnnt nnythin'."  "Thwe's only ono thing in this  world thnt I want, Duncan," sobbed  the sick woman, "and that is, to see  my Neva's l'aco again, to hear hor  Kl>eal*. to uie; then I'd die, if I had  to, in peace,''  There wus n slight noise outside  tho window, and a sound liko tho  wild, wailing sobs of a human voice.

'J'hut voU'i"!  ror ah instant he was stunned.  "I am going in to see mother,"  sho sobbed. "1 have como back to  her."  Those words recalled Farmer (Jrny  to his senses, and filled him with a  mighty anger.  "Yer not goin' in to yer mother!"  he cried,  harshly.      "It's yo    that  brought 'er whar she is. Yer not  goin' in to finish up yer work by  frightenin' her to death! She's too  Weak to stan' any sech suddint  shock." ,  "Oh, let me go in and see her, If  but for a moment, father!" pleaded  the girl, sinking on her knees at his  feet and holding out her thin, trembling hands to him. "She is very, very  ill. I can see that through the window. Let me go to her father!" and  she would have glided past him, but  he blocked the way with hia heavy  form.  "Ye can't step across the threshold till I know yer story, girl!" he  declared, with a cutting harshness  that seemed to wither the very heart  and soul within her. "Tell whar  ye've been. Tell yer story from first  ter last, and I'll jedge whether I kin  ask ye ter step in or not."  "But you would not turn me away  from the bedside of my sick mother,  would you?" sobbed Neva, wildly.  "Oh, be kind, be merciful! It might  be her dying bedside you are keeping  me from soothing! Oh, surely you  would not refuse me the shelter of  the roof that has been my only  home, at such a time!"  "That depends," returned the farmer, sternly. "Mebbe ye ain't got no  call, fer to stand in her presence. Ye  must tell yer story first, I say."  "It would take Aiany^ minutes,"  moaned Neva, wildly, "and time may  be precious, father. After I have  kissed her face, held her hriad one  !iTOe~ffiinuTe^^  defer voice whisper one word of welcome, then I will come out here to  you, father, and tell you all though  it stabs my heart afresh."  ' 'I hev passed my word, declared  the farmer stolidly; "an' ye ought  ter know that my yea means, yea  and my nay means nay."  This decision seemed to madden the  girl to a sort of frenzy. To be so  near her poor, sick mother,, and be  restrained from flying to her bedside! Ah, God! it was too ci-uell Sho  could not endure it; it seemed < beyond} human nature; and with asharp  cry she wrenched herself freo from  tlio hand that held her in its strong  clutch, and before ho could recovcr  his.breath through surprise, sho had  darted past.him like a storm-driven  swallow and entered the house, and  by the time he was on tho throshold  the girl was by hur mother's bedside.  There was a wild cry of "Mother!  oh, mother! mother!"  Simultaneously with this tha tmf-  /oror raised herself from her pillow,  then, without uttering a word, fell  heavfly back.

How he missed her! Ah, dear Heaven! how bitter it is to be old, ill,  an-d helpless among strangers, who  grumble over cvoiy little extra  trouble sickness in the house causes  them.''  There was no gentle hand to soothe  his pain-racked brow, no one to hold  a cup of water to his parched lips,  no one to care if be were comfortable  or not, and his heart cried out anew  for Neva. He yearned for her with a  yearning- that could not be appeased.  He had found out that she went to  New York, and quite as soon as he  was able to do so, he sold the little  farm and followed her.  "I was born on this place, as was  my father before me, and I expected  to die in the old place; and be buried under the maples yonder; but  home is homo to me no longer. 1  am going to find my Neva. Her home  shall be my home; where she is I  will end niy days, and there I will be  buried."  The neighbors fell sorry for the old  man, and shook their heads sorrowfully when they saw him depart, and  they said, "He might as well search  for a certain balde of grass in a  wheat-field, or one particular grain  of sand on the seashore���������he will never find her." They' said "good-bye,'-'  and watched him out of sight, feeling that he was passing out of their  lives, that the scenes which once  knew him would know him no more,  and that they should never see him  again in this life.  Meanwhile, Neva had again drifted  back to New York; and after her arrival there, in counting over the  money she had left, she found that  it was an alarmingly small amount.  and that it would be entirely exhausted within a week's time.  It was then that the necessity of  finding something to do forced itself  upon her mind. -She wished she had  not left her father in such bitter  anger in the hour in which he had  such need of her. Ah! if it were to  be done over again she would have  forgiven him all things.  Neva was so young, so inexperienced, and it was a pitiful thing tc  face the dark future that loomed up  before her. For a young girl to be  homeless, friendless* penniless in the  streets of New York���������-ah! what can  be more cruel? Neva found it by no  means as easy as she had anticipated. She realized that the first day.  When night fell she had no shelter.  Then she thought of the waiting-  woman at the depot, and to her the  girl made her way, and in a sob-  ���������bing-voice-told-herr-situation  BILEANS A "WOMAN'SMEDICINE"  THE FARM WOOD LOT.  Grateful  Wives  and  Mothers Testify  x   to Their Value.  Bileans have been called "a woman's medicine" because of their exceptional fitness for the various ailments peculiar to the sex, as well as  for liver disorders and stomach ailments, generally. Unlike most, liver  and stomach medicines, Bileans contain no bismuth, mercury, or any  mineral whatever. From coating to  kernal they are purely vegetable.  Mrs. J. Whitfield, of Swan Lake,  (Man.), says':���������"Bileans,liave done me  a wonderful amount of good, I can  hardly describe how bad I felt before  I took them. I could not eat bui that  it caused pain. There was a constant sensation bf tightness in my  side, and my liver was entirely out  of order. I could not sleep at nights,  suffered also from kidney trouble, and  was altogether in a rundown and very  serious condition. I had been ailing  in this way for years, and it is gratifying to find that Bileans are equal  to my case."  "Mrs. Wm. Hall, of Dean Lake,  says: ���������"I bave proved Bileans very  good for constipation, from which I  suffered a great deal. They cured me."  Mrs. J. H. Thompson, ��������� of Cleveland Park, says:���������"For irregularities  and painful periods I can highly recommend Bileans, They proved a  great blessing to me and restored me  to health when I had become very ill  and very despondent."  Bileans are absolutely unequalled  for female ailments and irregularities,  constipation, piles, anaemia, debility,  rheumatism, blood impurities, etc.  They tone up the system and enable  it to throw off colds and chills,  strengthen -girls just emerging into  womanhood, and speedily restore energy and strength to those who are  rundown.

"I am glad you came to me,"returned the woman, laying a kindly  hand on the girl's dark head. "I  think I ani just the one who can  help you in your dilemma, if you  are quick with the needle. There is a  down-town establishment advertising  for assistants, so their superintendent was telling me only'.-yesterday.  I will give you a note to him."  Neva thanked the good woman with  tears In her eyes, little dreaming  how strange a web fate was weaving  about her.  (To be continued.)

This pretty experiment bas  rightly been called the calqrlc paradox. If a drop of water is placed on a  redhot or white hot metal plate It  does not suddenly flasli into steam under the Influence of the great heat. It  does not even boil. It simply evaporates quietly and slowly as it rolls,  about the plate. Now, suppose that  the drop on the plate is a volatile Hq-  ���������uidi-like~sulphuro.us,acldirjt^lLevapv  orate, and this evaporation will produce cold. Let a drop of-water fall  in the sulphurous acid drop, and It will  be frozen in spite ofthe heat. M. Bou-  tlgny thus froze waier on a white hot  platinum capsule. Faraday carried  this remarkable experiment even further. Pouring some ether and solidified carbonic acid gas on a redliot platinum capsule, he formed a spheroidal  mass which evaporated very slowly. He then brought some mercury  into contact with It, and this was''instantly, frozen. Now, mercury requires  a temperature of 40 degrees below zero  to solidify It, and here It was frozen on  redhot platinum.  Some Ideas That Careful Agriculturists Will Carefully Consider.  The work of the Canadian Forestry  Association has received very favorable comment from many thinking people of Canada. The denuding of the  farms of all timber, and the carelessness of replanting, have produced  whole tracts of our country that are  almost bare. The effect of this upon  the soil fertility and upon the climate  must; be deleterious. The ravages of  fire aad reckless lumbermen in the forests that feed our streams is also a  matter of concern. It is therefore a  pleasure to see in an exchange tho  sentiment that the following expresses. The conditions existing ln this New  York reminiscence are almost a duplication of Ontario's, so that It will  be read with profit by many. The  writer says:  "As a boy on the farm I have a  vivid recollection of the wood lots of  the old homestead where I was born.  These small wooded tracts possessed  great fascinations to my boyish mind.  The trees themselves were mysteries.  As a child I asked myself in vain  whence came these monsters that  raised their knotty arms high up almost among the clouds; it did not  seem possible that they could have  grown to such great dimensions. It"  seemed to me that some majestic power must have brought them into being.  Interest was added to these great forest trees by the fact that they- were  made the home of the gray, black and  red squirrel, of the coon, wild pigeon  and other forms of game, and were  often Inhabited by the wild honey bee  which filled the caverns with honey.  On the knotty arms of the oaks the  crow and hawk would perch, watching for its prey and occasionally the  eagle.  "Further Interest was added to the  wood lands through that fact that  there wero in them many hickory trees  which bore bountiful crops of toothsome hickory nuts; these nuts varied  from moderate size to those nearly as  large as a butternut, and varied ia  quality and thickness of meat. There  was also many beechnut trees which  were loaded down with nuts and an  occasional sweet chestnut (tree. Further than this the trees of these woodlands were largely sugar maple. Every  returning springtime the monotony of  farm life was broken by the prospect  of sugar-making days. How gladly the  farmer's boy, shut up during the long  winter months, welcomed the approach of spring, when he could bor#,  into the trees; set'the sap pails and,  drive tne horse and stonebqat contaln-  -Jng-4he^barEelsJh^whici^^  A ReatlcHM I'ntcli of Unrth.

In  these, days the floor of the woodlands,  was heavily covered with fallen leaves  at all seasons of the year which added much to the beauty and fertility of  the wood lands. Of late years such few  wooded lots as are left on pur New  York State farms are so small or so  scantily filled with trees as to admit  the fall and wintry winds which sweep,  away the fallen leaves, thus denuding  the forest of its accustomed annual  dressing of fertility, and accounting  for the somewhat impoverished condition of the newly-cleared lands at the  present day. But further than this, it  must be remembered that the burning  of large qauntlties of wood and brush  in pioneer dayv added largely to the  fertility of newly-cleared forest lands  ln the wheat-groWlng section of Wes-  tern New York.  "I look with regret upon the disappearance of the farm woodlands ln the  more fertile regions of this state. They  were objects of great beauty, served as  windbreaks, and had some influence  ypon drought and rainfalls. In many  Instances beautiful wood lots, located  artistically, bo as to make of the farm  almost a park; were ruthlessly destroyed by some uncultured owner who had  no eye for the beautiful and no sense  of the utility of the wood lot. I remember particularly a maple grove located by the roadside at the bond of  the Honooye Creek, a branch of the  OenoBee River, twelve miles south of  Rochester. ThiB was a beautiful grove,  often occupied by picnickers and occasionally a village church would vacate  Its building and bold service in tbls  boautlful grove. I remember one such  service held at about tbe time tbe  wheat was ripening; the toxt ot tbe  preacher was, 'Behold the fields are  white wltb harvest,' Atftbe borders of  this grove were many large beech  trees, upon tbe smooth bark of which  every member of my family and the  most of tbe school children bad en*  graved their names; where the birds  nested peacefully and tbe squirrel fro]*  loked, Where tbe grove bordered the  creek was an old flebing and swim*  mlng-hole, where as a boy I have  caught many flsh. and have many  times enjoyed the luxury of a cool batb  at harvest time. What a sacrilege lt  was to wreek tbls beautiful spot wltb  tbe axe of tbe woodman, Did the few  onrAn of wood and tbe small crops of  grain grown upon this tract ever repay  the loss ot ell thla beauty? No, lhe  land was of little value for growing  Sain.

Mr. K, J. ArlesB, 401 Oity Halt Ave,.  Montreal, Quebec, is an old gentleman ot  wide acaaintance, havinc served thirty-  eight yearB iu the General Post-office ot  Montreal, a record which speaks for itself. Concerning his use of Peruna, Mr.  Arless says:  "I have been afflicted with nasal  catarrh to such a degree that it affected my hearing.  /'This wad contracted some twenty yearp  ago by being exposed to draughts and  sudden changes of temperature.       ,  "I have been under the treatment oi  specialists and have used many drugs  recommended as specifics -for catarrh  in the head and throat���������all to no purpose.  "About three years ago I was induced  by a confrere in office to try Peruna.  "After some hesitation, as.

Alfred Austen Pays   High   Tribute to  Feminine Temperament.  In a lecture at the Royal Institution,  the Poet Laureate has given a graphic  criticism of the respective provinces of  the novelist and poet, together with  some remarks upon the Influence of  feminine literary tastes, which were by  no means the least interesting portion  of his discourse.  "To describe men and women as they  are, for the delectation of men and women as they are." says Mr. Austin,  "may possibly be the proper business,  and apparently Is at present the chief  task of the novelist. But assuredly,"  he continues, "that is not the function  of the Poet, who, if he glances from  heaven to earth, glances likewise from  earth to heaven.' His enduring vocation  Is, while thoroughly knowing men and  women as they are, to transfigure them  into what they might or ought to be.  "'Man has lost his dignity, but Art  has saved it. Truth still lives in Poetry,  and from the copy the original may be  restored^ ThU splendid saying of  Schiller Is, I think, not undeserving of  the notice even of the novelist. But for  the poet It ls an instruction and a  watchword."  After paying a high tribute to the  feminine temperament, the Poet Laureate qualifies his admiration with the  following remarks upon woman's literary taste: t  "The lady," he observes, "who said the  other day that she was not muoh Interested in politics, but that she was  greatly Interested in politicians, uttered a suggestive truth, not only regarding herself, but likewise regarding the  majority of her sex. It is no demerit  In them, but let us frankly recognize  the fact. ���������.,,  "They are interested more In the Individual joys, sorrows, sins, sufferings,  and emotions generally than in national  or world-wide issues.

The most gigantic harp . ever constructed, as far as the record goes, was  that made by Veritan, the provost of  Burkli, near Basel, Switzerland, in  1787. That was a long while ago. but  the fame of M. Veritan's gigantic harp  was such that it is still occasionally  mentioned by writers on the rare and  the wonderful, just as the sea ssrpent,  bloody rain, live mastodons, etc., are.  JI.': Yerltan's colossal musical instrument was 320 feet in length, and, on  that account, was constructed in an  open iot instead of in a harp factory. It  was most simple in construction, consisting of fifteen wires strung tightly  between two poles. These wires were  of different sizes, the largest being one-  sixth of an inch in diameter and the  smallest one-twelfth of an Inch. They  were stretched north and south and inclined in such a manner as to form an  angle of from twenty to thirty degrees  with the horizon. This queer instrument  was not intended as an exaggerated  toy. but was constructed for the express purpose of foretelling changes in  the weather which were calculated by  Professor Veritan according to the different tom������s the Instrument made when  tbe wind was blowing through it.

This statement is made by  Mrs. Joseph Martel, St. Oliver street,  Quebec. She adds: "My daughters  are aged respectively twenty-two and  twenty-three years. , For two years  they suffered from the weakness and  distress of anaemia, and had I  learned of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills  earlier, it would not only have saved  me money, but much worry and anxiety as well. Both girls were as pale  as a sheet. They, suffered from head:  aches, poor appetite, and grew so  feeble that they could hardly go  about. They were under a doctor's  care, but did not improve a'bit, I  despaired of ever seeing them in good  health again, when a friend called my  attention to Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.  Soon after they began the pills there  was an improvement in their condition and in less than a couple of  months they were again enjoying  good health, active robust girls. I  am so grateful for what Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills have done for my children  that-I strongly recommend them to  every mother who has- a weak, pale-  faced boy or girl."
