Her own whisper seemed to her to  echo round the room, and at. tho  sound sonic? of her tremor, returned.  She looked nervously about, her, her  glance wandering slowly from the  dead man's face along the walls to  the window across which the curtains  were drawn. The outlook from the  window was al, (lie side of the house  towards the most; solitary part of lhe  common, and the wood that sloped  down to it, and as Betty's glance triiv-,  oiled across the window she suddenly  became aware of a face pressed  against the one piece of glass uncovered.by the curtain. The. face was  there and it was gone. All in (he  Hash of a second it had,come and vanished, * but the girl'.5 intensely sharpened _en.es gained a vivid impression of its every feature, and she stood  watching the place where it had been  in a sort, of paralysis of terror.  In which direction had it"vanished.  Would the door open presently, and  should she be confronted by that person who had, just been peering in upon thedead-^that, silently prying person, who had presumably been scared  away by the sight of her.  The face ���������had not been the face  of one of the villagers, that was quite  certain. She should know it again  anywhere, she had no doubt on that,  point either. Aud-j-ought she, at'  once tc pursue the man,;and discover  why he was furtively peeping and  spying about the house? Could this  mnn with the Avhite face and staring  eyes have pldyed "a part in the murder? The thought flashed like lightning, through her brain; and she  glanced across at the dead man. almost as If she expected him to ans-  , wer her unspoken question. Was ,her  Imagination, playing tricks with her,  or did she really see a curious assent-  . ing smile on the still features?

At the sound of her own voice,  echoing so loudly in the dreadful quiet  of ihe room, she was seized with a  fresh panic of fear, and .opening the  door ({iiickly without arfother glance  behind her she fled from tbo room  and from the house, her heart beating  hard against her side, her breath'coming in heavy gasps. Her fingers  shook so pitifully as she tried to re-  lock the door that she could hardly  make the key turn in its place, and  when she stood at. last outside in the  fresh air she was trembling so violently That sho felt its if she could  hardly  stand.  .

There is an excellent reason why  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have cured  the most severe cases of neuralgia,  sciatica and other complaljits in the  group known as disorders of the  nerves. This group also Includes St.  Vitus Dance, partial paralysis and tl,ie  jommon state of extreme nervousness  and excitability. Each of these complaints exist because there is something the matter with the nervous  system; If the nerves have tone and  are strong and: healthy you will not  have any of these complaints. The  reason why Dr- Williams' Pink Pills  cure nervous disorders is, that they  restore werk, run, down nerves to  their proper state of tone. '.. They act  both .irectly upon the .blood supply  and the nerves. The highest medical authorities have noted that v^v-  ous troubles generally attae'r, people  who are bloodless and that the  nerves 'are toned when the blood is  renewed. It;is thus seen'that Dr.  Williams' Pink Pillls cure nervous  disorders by"" curing' thecause of the  trouble. The following is an instance. Miss Annie Jones, "London,  Ont., says:���������"For over a year 1 was  -an intense sufferer from neuralgia,  which located in my face and head.  The pain at times Was so intense that  I could scarcely keep from screaming,  and nothing I was doing for the trouble seemed to help me. As time  went on my whole nervous system  was affected. At last when I felt  that my case was almost hopeless 1  was advised to try Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills. The result of this treatment  was that 1 am now enjoying such  comfort as I had not known for years,  and only those who have suffered  from neuralgic pains can realize what  a blessing the Pills have been to me."  if you are suffering from any blood  or nervous disorder   begin   to   cure  _._,.-,__,_ _a _ ���������....' ...:,u i...

Arsenic as Widely Used In India sa  In Ancient   Rome  Arsenic is commonly employed by  the professional poisoner in India,  who will poieon a whole family to  make sure of one victim.

The poison is usually given ln  sweetmeats, and generally hy a  strange woman who has been met ln  tho street, and who mysteriously disappears. This strange woman is  found in every analyst's report for  the la&t twenty years, and in circumstances so identical that it would almost seem to be the same person.  Will this elusive person' ever bo captured by the Indian police?  : Arsenic has, perhaps, been more  frequently used that any other poison  for criminal purposes, It has been  proved identical with the wonder elixir of .the seventeenth century, when  secret poisoning became so frequent  In Italy that the clergy, despite the  rules of the confessional, acquainted  Pope Alexander VII in 1868 with tlie  extent of the practice.  It was found that young widows  were, abundant in Rome, nnd that  most ot lhe unhappy marriages wero  speedily dissolved- hy the death of  the husband.

It ta^a well known fact that ground  which is kept loose on top will evaporate much less, water tliaa a soli  which is packed on top. Tlie moisture which escapes into the air is  absolutely lost so far as the ^plants  growing in that particular fiffd aro'  concerned, and .If anything cau bo  done .to hold this moisture in tho  ground*so that It may reach the roots'  of the growing crop, It Is of courso  the thing to strive for, and will prove  a benefit to the plant growing in the  field.  Some years ago one of the representatives from tho Agricultural College was visiting au up-to-date farmer In the country, and tho- farmer  showed him a Held of lyheat which  Illustrated this harrowing lu a ' remarkable manner.  A" storm had passed over that section of the country aud about one and  a half Inches of rain had fallen. It  had been a dashing, shower and had  packed the surface of the ground considerably. The grain was from four  to six inches high, and tho farmer  had been advised to harrow the ground  to prevent evaporation.- Ho sent his  hired man to do the work, who hitched on "lo the harrow and dragged it  diagonally across the field of wheat,  and then around the outside of the  field some five or six times. Ho then  became, disgusted -with the work because It appeared that he was dragging out so much of the grain and reported the fact to the farmer who  ordered the work to be discontinued.  By* '.he time the grain had headed  tho marks of the harrowed sections  could be plainly seen..' The place  where it had been dragged diagonally  across the field .produced grain at  least eight or ten "inches higher than  that on either side which had not  been harrowed, and along the edges  of the field the grain was in a like  condition. The grain of ��������� the field  that had not -been touched' by the  harrow was not to be compared with  the harrowed grain, either'in appearance, size of plants.or heads of grain.  The yield from the harrowed portion  was practically double .that from the  unharrowed' portion.  It simply shows that tho' harrowing and loosening of the surface soil,  even though It did destroy some of  the plants, conserved the moisture and  benefited those plants that were left  In such a marked degree (hat it materially- increased the yield from that  Held, and shows that this practice  could be employed to advantage by  all farmers.���������"Qry Farming.*,  Willie, .old tlio moiher sorrowfully,  eyory Llmo you aro naughty.I got another gray hair.  a.e! said Willie; you must have  been u terror.

These  men are not now with the colors, but  a stall of clerks and a department  armed with medal lists and regimental records are endeavoring to trace  them. .  Many of this lost legion are Irregulars who flocked to the Brltlslrcol-  ors when *war broke out, but who have  since become scattered all over the  world. One young man, for instance  after the war," went prospecting ln  tho Interior. He turned up. recently  In Capetown after an absence of nearly ten years and asked for his medal, it was given him.* Similar demands from all parts of the British  Empire are received nearly every  week.  Hundreds of medals havo been reposing In regimental sares since 1904.  At the end of ten years, according  to the King's regulations, those still  unclaimed will be broken up and the  sliver debited to the mint. Many  men have refused the medal oh the  ground that it is 'too cheap-' Three-  quarters of a million of the medals  were struck���������a.fact which may have  been lightly regarded.  But these South African awards are  not the only medals at- Woolwich  awaiting claimants. There are' 4,000  medals (with names engraved) for  the Zultkcampalgn of 1878-79, and also  seven medals presented by- the British South African Company for,the  Matabcle*campaign. Claims for the  Crimean and Indian Mutiny medals  are still made. On an average the  India o".ice give away twelve Mutiny  medals a year, while the war office  bestows one Crimean medal a year  and replaces about ten lost-medals.-   -  PROGRESS OF CREMATION  Over Four Hundred   Cremations   at  /*-*  Montreal  Minard's Liniment Co., Limited.  ��������� Dear Sirs,���������This fall I got thrown  on a fence and hurt my chest very  bad, so .1. could not work and it hurt  me to breathe. , I tried all kinds of  Liniments and they did me no good.

The British Medical journal ln a re-  c.ent article on the progress of cremation gives figures showing the  growth of this method of disposing  of the dead in Europe.  The total number of cremations in  Great Britain during 1911 was 1,023,  which shows an Increase of ,177 as  compared with 1910. Since the opening of tho Working Crematorium ln  1885, there havo been 9,984 cremations ln Great, Britain. At tho present time there are 13 crematoriums  in Germany, eix of which started operations last year. A law has been  recently parsed permitting cremations  in Prussia.  In Switzerland there are now ten  crematoriums, three of which belong  to the municipalities of Basel, Geneva  and Zurich. There were 1,210 cremations ln Switzerland In 1910. .  There are about forty crematoriums ln the United States, twenty-  eight In Italy, five in France, four In  Sweden and Norway, two In Russia,  one In Denmark, and one in Montreal,  Canada.  The beautiful crematorium ln  Mount Royal cemetery at Montreal  was opened in 1902'and up to the  close of 1911, 40-1 cremations took  place there.

The liquids and the digested foods in the mlimeotary canal pass through tbe  wall of the canal into the blood. ' This process is called absorption and takes place  chiefly from the small intestine. After absorption the blood carries the food  through the body, and each cell takes from the blood the food it needs. A pure  glyceric extract made from bloodroot, mandrake, stone, queen's root and golden  seal and sold by druggists for the past forty years under the name ot Dr. Pierce's  Golden Medical Discovery, give** uniformly excellent result, es n tonio to help  in the assimilation pf the food and in the absorption by the blood of the food  it requires. Eradicate the poisons from the blood with this alterative extract  which does not shrink the white blood corpuscles, because containing no alcohol or .  other injurious ingredients. .Thus the body can be built  np ���������strong to resist disease.'

To come "to a satisfactory  conclusion on these vexing problems  demands a thorough investigation of  all; the possible results which would  arise from the adoption of the proposals mado! To often the-actual  results of the operation of tho proposed schemes are obsured by parties  interested In securing pecuniary advantages. (  Such a scheava Is the ono now before the Western grain growers, ln  which an effort Is being mado to establish a sample market for the  handling of. grain. Tho Imaginary  benefits of such a market are extolled  while tho Injuries that would result  front It are otitterly Ignored. Chief  among tho faults that may be found  with tho propoaed scheme Is tho  greater length of tlmo which would  bo consumed In convoying thp grains  n* .m the point of shipment to the lake  front. V'  livery farmer knows the value of  tbe rapid transit of grain from tho  farm to the market. Tha present  cry from one ond of tho country to  tli-* other Is that the railways aro too  slow 1;. moving tho crop. There are  too. fe a- cars and InsuilYclenL motive  power. And yet the establishment  of a sample market'"would further  long then the time of transit, and lessen the abilities of tho railways to  handle the crop.     ��������� '*.;���������  Next fall, one or the railways will  ho. hauling Into Winnipeg at least 500  carloads of grain every day. Should  a sample market, be .'established the  grain would be sold by separate carloads en sample, aiid ordered out on  time. The whole railway yard cannot bo switched to pick out a particular car as each^order is received, so  that there will have to be a rule to  start switching cars every night after  five o'clock. This means, therefore,  that a car of grain reaching Winnipeg  after eleven o'clock ou Saturday  morning would not start tobe.switch  ed until after flvo o'clock on Monday  evening, as the .grain would not be  disposed of at tho grain exchange before Monday. ;    *  Cars that reached Winnipeg before  eleven o'clock Saturday morning apd  were switched Saturday evening  would be shipped,:-on Sunday. But  oruMonday there would be no.grain  moving out of Winnipeg. That means  that, practically no: grain would be  shipped out of Winnipeg for twenty-  four hours each" week. The same  thing would occur on Thanksgiving  ���������'Day-and-the-other-holidaYs.���������  PRIMITIVE SURGERY  Evl-  Some   Prehlstorlo   Skulla  Show  dences of Trepanning  There la no doubt that somo rough  forni of eurgory must havo existed  from very,ancient times, but It Is  strange to flud that a'o complex and  delicate an operation as trepanning  is one p. tbe oldest.  So far as actual report go, Hippocrates gives the earlieet account. He  wroto treatises on fractures, dislocations, and wounds of the head, In  which he described tho method of procedure to.be followed ln caso" of a  fractured skull. His direction was  to cut away a piece of. bone, so that  tho pressuro on tho brain might be  relieved.  Thero are also records about this  tlmo and later of a file being used for  this purpose, which at a time when  ���������\naesthetlc. were Undreamed of, must  havo been, to say the least, painful.  According to Dr. T. Rice Holmes,  theoperation of removing tho pieces  of bono wa3 performed long beforo  historic times. "The effects on tho  skull ;-/'ro easily seen after death, and  are visible so long as the bones aro  preserved. ���������'*������������������.'  From Inspection of certain skulls  of the later stone ago In, ancient  Britain, Dr. Holmes has'come to the  -conclusion that some of theso had  undergone.'"- an operation which 'must  havo been performed with a stono Implement.���������-London Slaudard.  Big   Game  A military aviator, Corporal Gilbert,  had <v. exciting experience recently,  while flying over, LePuy. The curious  thlug about the experience was that  although the airman was in danger, he  knew Kothlng of It until he.grounded.  GilberVwas Hying fairly low oyer some  fields, when a farmer, taking his machine for. a big bird ran for his gun,  which was hanging on the branch of  a tree, and fired three times at the1  aeroplane. ' ,'*',  The farmer had mistaken, the aeroplane for a species of eagle about  which there Is a superstition in that  part of the country that It ruins tho  crops If it Is seen to fly In Holy'Week  and Is not shot. ,  Corporal Gilbert who had heard, the  shots and seen the smoke, thought  a salute was being fired in his honor,  and dropped a handful'of pamphlets  asking for . subscriptions for army  aeroplanes; The old farmer was  convinced that, although he did not'  kill the bird he shot somo feathers  ���������from Its tall.

Then, taking Into' Consideration the  glut that, would-take place at the lake  front through the rush of grain there  In the first part "of the week owing  to the hold up at Winnipeg over Sunday, It ,ls not an exaggeration to say  Hint, the power of the railways to  move tho crop would ho reduced hy  twenty-five per cent,  The agitators for a sample market  are saying that the- railways should  add lo their rolling slock and yard  facilities. But every innn who exorcises common rpiiho knows that notwithstanding "their heavy expenditures and every effort, thoy wero able  to make the railways hnvo been barely  nhlc* to keen up with tho large tn-  erensen In the crops produced In the  West, It Is Apparent, therofore, thnt  If the railways nre hampered In their  movement of tho crop to the extent  of twenty or twenty-five per cent, that  the grain blockade will he worse than  ever beforo,  The woRtern fanner Is well nwnrc  Ihat a grain blockiiiJ<-> always works  'o thn detriment of those .who rnlne  1he grain and lo the advantage nf  Miose who liny grain nnd hold It In  chnlr elevators.

At 9 o'clock the doorbell rang,..and  Uncle Ike was admitted ond guided  back to the sitting room. From what  Mr. Bowser bad nald Mrs. Bowser was  prepared to 6ee nn. Uncle Rube, and  ber surprise was great when she noticed what a foxy face the uncle carried. Men of that look work the shell  game at .fairs aud circuses. She bad  seen pictures of al) Boris of bad men in  the newspapers,*".nnd she Wasn't over  a minute ln making up her mind tlmt  Mr. Bowser bad been played for an  easy mark. She tried to bo lot cresting,  but It wn. Ihe hardest kind of work.  Uncle Iko tried hnrd to feel at home,  but It was evident thnt ho would have  been easier In his mind If alone with  Mr. Howser.

Lie  No. 2 had been told.  "What has become of Mr. Bowser's  mother's sisters?   Thero wero two, 1  .believe."  "Yes-Sariih nud Ruth. Both are  dead."  The mother had no Bisters. That was  He No. 3, and Mr. Bowser looked nt  his Uncle Ike in astonishment.  "I suppose you remember the old red  farmhouse us vividly ns If you had  seen iO*esterdny."  "Indeed I do.**  Tbo old red farmhouse wnsn't red nt  all, but white. . The liar wns getting  nlong swimmingly. Mr. Bowser didn't  exactly think he wns lying, but In Id it  to lossvof memory Instend. _FIve or six  times be gave Mrs. Bowser tbe wink  to stop the cross examination, and  when she persisted ho said she might  be excused for a time. She left tbe  room satisfied that Uucle Ike was ',a  frnud, but wbnt be was after further  than to borrow money she could not  make out. While she wrestled with  the problem the uncle was saying to  Mr. Bowser:  "Nice wife you have."  "Thanks."  "Good looking nnd keen."

All Nations Mix Metaphors and Per*  , petrste   8elf   Contradictor/   Figures  ���������f Speech,  but the  Emerald   Brand  Holds the Prise For Point and Vigor.  In "Bulls, Ancient and. Modern," J.  0. Percy,. tbe author, contrasts the  English and Irish variety to tbe advantage of tho latter. Although the  most diverting bulls aro usually fa*  tbered upon Irishmen, they bare not  by any means a monopoly, All nations  mix metaphors and full Into self contradictory blunders. Englishmen make  bulls probably Just as often ns Irishmen, but there Ir a difference. The  English ones are (seldom amusing.  Tho Irish oues almost nlwayB are.  Mr. Gladstone never hinted at Irish  blood In his veins, yet be once warned  bd M. P. that" It wns no use for'him  "to sbnke bis bead In tbe teeth of his  own words." Mr. Balfour has spoken  of "an empty theater of unsympathetic auditors." Lord Randolph Churchill,  referred to an item of national credit  as "a mere flea bite In the ocean of  our expenditure." If further proof be  called for It was a Yorkshlrcman who  told a meeting of shareholders In some  place of entertainment at Leeds that  "they hnd been catering for a class  wblcb does not exist and which now  goes to Bradford." It whs nn English  chairman of a railway company who  snld "It would pny better to carry  third class passengers for nothing  rather than let tbe tramways get  tbem."  Why In jt, then, thnt bulls nre sup-  posed to be native to Ireland? It can  hardly be for the reason that they are  supposed to tnke their name from a  certain Obadlah Bull, an Irish barrister, who practiced In London during  tbe eighteenth century. Air.
