The most keenly contested municipal election held in thiB city in
recent years was brought to a close
laat eaening. The fight centered on
the mayoralty candidates, B. Lequime and K. Haw, the aldermen |
in the East ward being elected by
acclamation, and in the West ward
the three hest men proved easy winners. The result of the polling
wus:

EA8T WARD,
E. C. Henniger,  Jell  Davis  and
H. A. Sheads (hv acclamation).
John Donaldson was elected
school trustee by acclamation to re
place N. L. Mclnnes, whose term pi
utlice has expired.
The campaign was started inline
dialely after the nominations on
Monday. The auditor and the citv
solicitor ara given the credit—oi
blame—of having manipulated the
nominations so as to elect, the Easi
ward aldermanic delegation by acclamation by transferring Downey's
name to the West ward, Hatl there
been more aldermanic nominations in the East ward hoth Davis
and Sheads would huve withdrawn
from the race.
The most prominent issues in the
campaign were the salary  tpiestiou
and  lhe sale of a city for 8100 less
than the highest hid.    The way the
campaign   was   manipulated, even
now there is no proof that the rate
payers favor salaries, nor lhat they
are satisfied that the mayor was not
in possession of all the facts in the
real   estate  deal  hefore it was consummated.    Mr.   Gowland's   letter
appeared in the public press nearly
a week before the election.    No   at
tempi   was mude   hy Mr. Gaw nor
his adherents to refute the charges
made   by   Mr.  Gowland until the
eve of Ihe election.   The|i, in   violation nf the Elections /.ot, which prohibits the printing ami circulation
of  political   roorhaclis on   election
days,   a tlodger, in wbich the city
clerk iiiaale allidavit that, contrary
lo all previous statements  mad* by
him, Mr. Gaw was not   acquainted
with tbe fuels in the lot transaction
until several days after the deal had
heen made.   This allidavit was corroborated by   Mr. Gowland, and it
was this dodger that won th* mayoralty for Mr. Gaw by  tho magnili
cent majority of 7.   This part of the
election    was
neered    by
done,   and   they   were    circulated
around  the   voting booths in viola-
lion of the election laws.    The Sun
is not inclined to doubt the genuineness of the   clerk's affidavit.    If a
person voluntarily, or  by pressure,
takes   an   oath   that he has  beeu
guilty of making misstatements, we
must bow to the inevitable and accept   it   as true.     There are yet,
however, quite a number of  persons
—among them  nearly   every member of the old   council—who  refuse
to  believe   thit   Mr. Gaw was not
cognizant of ull the facts in the real
estate deal before it  wss made.    If i
he   was not,  tbey argue, the city's'
business must   be   conducted   in a
loose manner.
The campaign methods of thc
two mayoralty candidates bore a
marked contrast. Mr. Lequime
confined his efforts to having printed und circulated 500 or 600 of his
platform tenetB. Mr. Gaw mude a
awnvass of the whole city. To the
lhe hotelkeepers he bused his hopes
of re-election on the fact thai he
Had not "disturbed" the liquor
trallic during the past year. To the
church element he undoubtedly
gave some reasons why he should
he given another term.
The average citisens, the men
who pay the taxes, did not rejoice
very much over the reelection ol
Mr. Gaw. Not counting the sixteen
ar seventeen householders on the
voters' list, his lasi administration
■ost every* ratepayer in lhe eity be
I ween $4 and 8iJ for salaries, raise
>if salaries and the amount lost on
the real estate deal. A few more
similar administrations, and there
will he no difficulty iu locating the
reason why the city does not grow
as rapidly as we would wish.
A couple of tha appointive officers
if the city worked as hard for Mr.
Gaw's election as if their positions or
a raise of salary had depended on their
elfbrU. The city employees also rendered valiant service. Although the
citizens failed to enthuse over the re
suit, there is said Co have been great
rejoicing anionic the Mikadu's subjects
in the city.
The fact that a spineless newspaper
truckles to the mayor-elect tines not
signify anything. It wui afraid to express a prefcience before the election,
and hatl his oppanent been elected It
would have pursued the same course
toward the successful candidate. A
newspaper is supposed to guard the
people's interests, logardless nf favor
patronage. The Sun haa given ita
reasons why Mayor Gaw's last administration was not in the bost interest
of the ratepayers, anil hopes that
there will be an improvement during
his coming term.

"For tbe EIHnghums," 1 said to the
elevator boy as 1 handed lil in my
card.
I was in a New Vork apartment
bouse for u cull un some old friends
of mine. The elevator boy handed my
card to the telephoue bey, who announced to tbe Effiugbarug that Mr.
Townsend had called.
"All rlgbt," said the latter after receiving a reply. "You're to go up."
1 I stepped on the elevator and was
noon ushered by a maid Id a black
4ress and a white ruffled apron luto
the drawing room of an apartment on
the sixth floor. There was no oue ln
the room, which surprised me, for 1
>was very Intimate with the Efflngbams
and supposed that at tbe announcement of my nume the whole family
would be waltiug to greet me.
'■ It was fully ten minutes that I sat
waiting wben I noticed that the light
shining through a keyhole in a door
opening Into un adjoining room suddenly gave place to darkness.
"One of the girls," 1 said to myself,
Is spying on me. That's a game two
can play at"
I got up from my seat, strolled
•bout tbe room, looking at the pictures ou the wull as if to kill time
while waiting, and when 1 reached the
door in question quickly turned the
knob and threw tbe door open.
There, kneeling so as to bring an eye
opposite the keyhole, was a young lady
1 had never seen. Her face was crimson, and after looking at me for a moment sbe covered ber tuna witb ber
hands.
I saw at a glance tbat not only one
mistake hnd beeu made, but several.
There might be fifty families ln the
building, and there were probably
more than one numed Effingham. I
bad doubtless got Into tbe wrong flat.
But why was tbe girl peering ut me
through the keyhole? Perhaps tbere
bad been a double coincidence of
names, she knowing some one by tbe
name of Townsend, or she did nol
know any one by that name and was
anxious to reconnolter the visitor before appearing. My curiosity being
aroused, I resolved not to spoil my
chance of enlightenment by giving
anything away. 1 proposed to listen,
not to talk.
.  The girl arose and, still blushing to
tbe roots of her bair. came forward.
"I am mortified beyond measure."
she said, "at being caught In sucb a
position, but you must admit thut he
fore receiving a call from the man I
am to marry I would naturally desire
to see him unobserved myself."
"The most natural thing In the
world,"' I replied, repressing a start on
learning tbat I was to be the girl's
busband.
"I received your note." she con tinned, "saying you would call yesterday,
and later your telegram that yon hud
suddenly been colled away. Then
when you were announced Just now I
was taken quite by surprise, having
expected that our meeting would not
take place for some time yet."
"I decided not to go."
"My act Is certainly not calculated to
give you n favorable Impression nf
me, I admit. Just think of n man calling for the first time on u girl he Is tn
marry, whom he has never seen, und
finding her peeping through a keyhole.
It's simply dreadful!"
"But becoming. To my taste, a girl
never looks so well as when blushing."
"But there Is no necessity for us to
stand. Be seated." She sank on n sofa.
1 on an easy chair. "1 hare fought
against such a marriage, but my guardian, who hus eertaln views for my
property, has Anally worn me out. Peebles, he tells mc that you are as much
Interested from tbnt point of view ns
I. Nevertheless 1 have told him tbat
after seeing you if you were repulsive
to me the matter should not go any
further. And thut Is the reason why
1 was endeavoring to get a peep at you
before meeting you. I Intended If you
were disagreeable to me even ln appearance that 1 wonld after all decline
to receive you."
"Knowing tbls, I'm sorry l didn't
leave you free to make a decision."
"I should hnve decided to meet you,"
ahe replied to tbis, casting down ber
eyes.
"Thank heaven!"
"You mean thnt you nre plouspd thnt
these schemes for the development of
our properties are to be carried out,"
sbe said archly.
"I assure you," I replied, with nn
Injured look, "thnt these property
schemes have nothing to do with my
satisfaction at finding you In every
way so much more ottraonve man i
bad hoped for."
There was a blush, at this, not of
mortification, but of pleasure.
"Now, I beg of you," I conttnund.
"not to spook further of thin matter of
property Interest thst hns brought ns
together. Let us consider our projected union one of Inclination alone.
Tet before doing so I would like to
get one matter out of the wny so that
lt may not Influence ns. Please writs
on a bit of paper what you consider
'the amount of ynur possessions, and I
will do the same. We will exchange
'these nam,.*" ami will hoth know what
we are to expect primarily from euch
other."
Now, I flatter myself this was very
foxy on my part I was not sure but
Ibat I would like to win this girl, and I
did not care to do so, rendering myself
liable to a charge of deception other
than ln permitting her lo continue lu
a mistake. We exchanged tbe slips,
and lt turned out that my possessions
were double hers.
"Why," she exclaimed on looking at
the amount on my slip, "Mr. Murkney
did not tell me that there was such an
Inequality us that.   I don't understand
whv, von who , hod never seen m«
should have desired me simply on account of a property consideration,
■nine being but one-half yours."
"I said to you Just now before this
Interchange of Information that after
<t had been made tbe sordid part of
this transaction should be dropped.
Now let us talk of otber matters."
By skillful management I learned
that the man I had been mistaken for
had gone away to be absent several
weeks and that no communication was
likely to take place between him and
Miss Effingham until bis return. At
flrst I permitted myself to drift on
luto the false posltlt 1 carelessly, bnt
now snd again twin ;es of conscience
would come to me and, more than all,
a distaste for the denouement that
was sure to follow. At the end of this
our first meeting lt was evident that
we were mutually pleased wltb eacb
other, and if we continued to be so the
wishes of the lady's guardian would
be curried out Wbat tbese wishes
were or how far they would tend to
her enrichment 1 didn't care. Wben I
arose to go sbe Bald:
"But you are not going before seeing my stepmother and my half sisters.   They are my only relatives."
"Pardon me." I replied. "I am rather shy of meeting strangers, especially
under the present circumstances. How
would It do for them to get a sight of
me the wuy you did—through the keyhole?"
"if you ever mention that again you
may consider the matter broken off between us forever. After all. I tblnk It
as well thnt ynu should meet them
during a Inter visit"
"I'm sure of It. How often do yon
think you cnn endure a call from me?"
"As often us vou like."
I wondered whether Miss Effingham considered that we were engaged
and would gruul uie nn engaged man's
privilege or, rather, expect uie to take
It. I didn't wish to presume so far on
n mistaken Identity and wns going
away without a kiss. The lady must
huve considered herself engaged, for
she made It plain that no sucb told
departure would please ber. 1 took
tbe kiss. and. though It was Intensely
enjoyable, i felt that I had received
that to which I was not entitled.
When 1 stepped out of that apartment bouse Into Ibe opeu air I was
fairly overpowered by the change
which had come over me since 1 had
entered It There were pleasurable
sensations confused with horrible anticipations. What would I do during
the nest few weeks while this otber
Townsend was away? Was I to try
to win tbe girl? 1 conned over tbe
question ns to whether or no it would
be hiiunruhlc for me to do so. There
were several points ln my favor. Iu
thu flrst plnce, I wus twice as well
fixed in worldly possessions us tba
other fellow. In the second, I bad
found favor In Miss Effingham's sight,
nnd she had yet to see bim. She
might on meeting blm lake a great
dislike to blm. I secretly Imped sbe
would. I took pleasure In depleting
hint In my mind's eye as a ml beuded,
freckled, snub nosed chap wltb tbe
forehead of au orung outline
I wcntfStrulgbt home, sat down In
nn easy chair uud tried to tblnk of
some plan whereby I might come out
of the mutter with eclat Instead of contempt, but failed to find one.
What would hare been tbe outcome
had 1 not been pierced wltb nn arrow
shot from thc little god 1 don't know.
it woutd probably have been far different from wbat It was. I vowed to
keep away from Miss Effingham and
tbe consequences of my first visit to
her. 1 kept my resolution by calling
the next day. and tbe next nnd tbe
next, for two weeks, every dny Intending n confession nnd never making
one. .Meanwhile the matter between
us was n case of desperate love.
I went to see my sweetheart one
dny and learned that the sword suspended over. me bud fallen. I found
her lu the room where I had flrst met
her. talking In an excited state to a
man who, as 1 entered, looked ut me
scrutinizing!)-. Miss Effingham, ns If
to shut us botb from her mind, snnk on
a sofa and concealed ber face wltb
her hnndkepcbler.
"Who are you, sir?" 1 asked. "The
lady does not seem inclined to Introduce us."
"1 am Edward Townsend."
"And I am John Townsend."
"I am Ihe Townsend, sir."
"Edith.** 1 said. "It's all out; You
mistook me for this gentleman, nud I
permitted you to continue In your mis-
tnke. All thnt remains to be done Is
for you to decide between us."
"Leave me, both of you," she wat]jd.
The other Townsend snd myself naturally obeyed and at the same time.
It was an embarrassing walk through
the corridor and a miserable ride down
the elevator. I was much put out to
discover that tbe real original Town*
send wns a far better looking man
than myself. When we ported at the
outer door we both raised our hats
politely, scowling at each other, and
went In different directions.
Within n week a little note came to
me addressed In a woman's hand. I
tore It open.    It read!
Dearest, nam. to mi.
' Then I knew I waa ths real Town-
lend.
The West and Its Ruins.
A Canadian business ibnn was re-
cently traveling on the C.P.R. from
Montreal to Vancouver, and after
Winnipeg was passed, practically hiB
only male traveling companion was a
middle-aged Englishman, wbo turned
out to be a London barrister of note,
and who was traveling on a pass to
make a sort of private inspection of
Canada. What he saw did not come
near to pleasing bim, and in the
smoking compartment his conversation was a continuous complaint
against the country.
"What a banal landscape!" he said,
gazing out of the window; "no Kills
and trees, no beauty."
"The settlers don't want bills," ventured the Canadion, "it would be too
much trouble to plow them. That ia
the finest wheat land in the world."

the Englishman, superciliously, and
the Canadian was silenced.
Presently the visitor resumed the
plaint. "How confoundedly unpictur-

home the traveler can look at ruins
and picturesque sights wherever he
turns."
"Oh! we have ruins and picturesque
sights in Canada," said his companion. "Wait till we get to Calgary.
I'll show you some there."
"Really, you have ruins in Canada!1
I never heard so. Wbat are theyC

"No," said thc Canadian, "we call
them remittance men. They are Englishmen without brains and with no
money except what their relatives
send them. You'll see lots of them in
the hotel bars anywhere in the Northwest if you are looking for ruins and
picturesque sights."
During the balance of the run to
Calgary there was a silence as that of

Ralph Smith, M.P. for Nanaimo,
spent a few days in Toronto recently,
and while there went one noon bour
into the barber shop of tbe King Edward. The shop waa filled and he had
to wait his turn. Eventually the
sound of "next" came from the knight
of the razor and he moved towards the
vacant chair. As he stepped forward
to get in, the barber said: "You will
have to excuse me, sir, here is one
of my regular customers."
The M.P. looked up and saw that
the man whom the barber wanted to '■
secure was no less than William Mac- i

the chair, and taking hold of the I
barber's leather strop jnst in front, i
he said:
"Excuse me, Mr. Mackenzie. I am '

The president of the Toronto Railway appreciated the joke, and, removing Ralph's hand from the strop, took

burst and scalded the whole left side of my face terribly. I
had a box of Zam-Buk In my pocket, which I was using for a
aore on my lip, and when I had recovered from the first shock
of the accident, I produced the balm and had It applied freely
to the scalded pans. I was suffering acute agony, but within
a wonderfully short time Zam-Buk gave me ease. I was able
to continue my journey and upon reaching home, I obtained
more Zam-Buk and continued the treatment. Zam-Buk acted
wonderfully well, and in a few days had the wound nicely
healing. I don't know anything so fine as Zam-Buk as a
healer of burns, scalds, cuts, and similar injuries, which
workers are so liable to, and, in my opinion, a box of Zam-
Buk should be kept handy in every worker's home."

MURDER OF D'ARCY M'GEE.
H*m an Ottawa Correspondent Secur.
ed a Beat on Statesman's Death.
April 7th, this year, was the forty-
second anniversary of the assassination of the brilliant and eloquent
Irish-Canadian, Hon. Thomas D'Arcy
McGee, in honor of, whom the Federal
Government will erect a state in OtJ
tawo. The tragedy connected witli
Mr. McGee's untimely end is familiar
to every reader of Canadian history,
but how the late George Gregg, who,
away back in the later sixties, was
Ottawa correspondent for the Leader!
(then a Toronto daily paper)"managed
to land ior his sheet one of the big- j
gest "scoops" on record, is not generally known to present-day newspaper readers.
The Leader issued two editions daily
—morning and evening—and was pub*
lished on the very spot where now
stands the Leader hotel at tbe corner
of King street and Leader lane, Toronto.   The  assassination of D'Arcy
McGee occurred about two o'clock in
the morning shortly alter tbe House
of Commons had ndjourrfed.   During
the evening McGee had delivered a
stirring address in which he bad expressed the loftiest sentiments of loyalty   to  the crown and devotion  tc .
Canada.    It had been a busy night j
for the boys in the press gallery and, I
after finishing their work, all the re. |
presentatives had gone home witb tha'
exception of George Gregg who was [
later than usual -completing bis re- >
port of the proceedings in the Com-;
mons. '
On reaching Sparks street he heard j
of the shooting and immediately wired l
his paper about tnree hundred words.
This was about half an hour after tha!
murder.   Grooo- followed uo his firat I
story an hour or two later with a column more of the details and at five
in the morning came another short
despatch. Thus he registered one ot
the cleanest news feats on record,
while all his confreres were soundly*
sleeping. They did not learn a word
of the tragedy until hours later. Thel
Leader, with the exclusive news ot
McGee's assassination sold rapidly
for the tidings roused intense excitement in Toronto and througbout *th»
country.
A lew of the conies of The Leoder
of April 7,1868, containing the story of
the memorable incident are still in existence, one being among the old newspaper files in the Toronto Reference!
Library. The Leader ceased publication about 1875 and George Gregg-
helped to found its successor, Thet
Mail. The man, who scored such a.
sensational "scoop" was an ardent)
curler. While engaged one night in
the roarin' game, over thirty years
ago, he contracted a cold which developed into pneumonia and caused
his death. Thomas A. Gregg, a brother, was later well-known in Toronto
1'ournalism and is residing to-day all
Srindale. Ontario.

FOUND QUICK GURE
AFTER EIGHT YEARS
DODD'S KIDNEY PILLS TRIUMPH
WHERE BELTS AND PLASTERS FAIL
Moses Sherwood, a long sufferer from
Backache, found permanent relief
in ons box of tht Great Canadian
Kidney Remedy, Dodd's Kidney
Pills.
Poodiac, King's Co., N. B., (Special).—After suffering for eight years,
while -all the time the remedy was
right at hand, Mr. Moses Sherwood,
a well known farmer living near here,
tried Dodd's Kidney Pills and is now
as well as ever he was in his life.
Mr. Sherwood's experience is similar to that of thousands of other natives of New Brunswick. "About
light years ago I hurt my back from
lifting," he states. "I used liniments
and plasters and wore a wide belt, but
in two years my trouble had developed into Kidney Disease.
"My back was so sore I could not
lift any weight, when reading a
Dodd's Almanac led me to try Dodd's
Kidney Pills. Before the flrst box
was finished my backache was gone
and I have never been troubled with
it since."
Belts and plasters may gi,ve temporary relief in cases of Backache or
Rheumatism, but the only way to
cure them is to go to the seat of the
trouble. Cure the Kidneys and the
Backache or Rheumatism will disappear. Dodd's Kidney Pills never fail
to cure the Kidneys.

one section is devoted to wintei sport
in Switzerland, with its "dazzling
splendor of sunshine and" snow.'' But
why is not Canada also given s place
among tne countries where "wiuteri
sunshine" is to be found? There is
sunshine in Canada in winter, and
winter snorts can be indulged in in
an inspiring and bracing atmosphere
not to oe rivalled even among the
Alps themselves. Sir Wilfrid Laurier, who regards the Canadian winter as "the glory of Canada," may
be again cited for the benefit of Brians in search of "winter sunshine."
and those catering for their wants:—
"1 do not know anything so beautiful as a beautiful winter day such
aj we have in Ottawa, in Montreal,
ot in Quebec, where the rays ot the
sun ((listen upon the white carpet
which extends as far ss the eye con
go tuwords the horizon, lliere is nothing quite so beautiful, unless it ba
a winter night, when the bluest ot all
skies is studded with millions of gems
never seen to such advantage in any
other country."
In another column a -Port Arthur
correspondent once more takes up
the cudgels in defence of Canada's
Miniate, nnd enters a protest acninn
the persistent appellation of "Our
Lady of tne Snows." It was not witn-
out good ground that the title preferred for the collected impressions ol
Canada of the representatives of the
International Council of Women, edited by the Countess of Aberdeen was
"Our Lady of the 8unshine."
Ths Wily Politician.
It is to be feared that politicians
are insincere and artful persons. Not
long since, a newspaperman was talk-
ing with a political worker who hod
spent some years campaiening in
pretty close relotlons with several
public men in Canada, and remarked
upon the singular gift possessed by
Sir John Macdonald for remembering
the names and faces of even humble
persons whom he had not m-S for
years.    The politician smiled.
"And you will notice." tbe reporter
continued, "that Sir Wilfrid Laurier
possesses the same gift. I hav* heard
several striking instances of it."
"Yes," said the politician. "And
Sir Charles Tupper had it, and so has
Mr. Borden."
"It would seem, then," said the reporter, "that the possession oi this
gift raises a man to leadership."
"No. The rift comes to tbe leader.
In other words, it is largely a matter
of cood management. ' successful
man does not have to do his own remembering. He can get it done lor
him. A sharp secretary or campaign
manager can find out a good many
things and speak a few useful words
to his chief at the right moment. For
instance, the prompter who knows
will tell hi? chief that some time during the afternoon he is likely to bs
introduced to Mr. Horatio Smith,
who often tells the story of how he
once drove the great man out to a
meeting at a certain place. Sure
enough Horatio meets the leader.
The leader looks at him intently. 'It
seems to me we have met hefore. I_et
me sec. Yes—it was in the election
of '90. You drove me out from the
railway to a meeting at Bileville.'
Does Horatio remember it? Weli,
rather. He is tickled to death—and
the story will be told by his grandchildren."

whole world. Here during the five
days June 12-16, 1876, fell a total of
114.14 inches of rain, distributed as
lollows: \2Hf,' 30.45; 13th, 7.75;
Uth, 40.80'. 15th, 22 84; 16th,
12 30. It so happened tbat the
maximum in four days was a little
less than Baguio's record for a like
period, viz, 83.69 inches.
Both these records were, however,
eclipsed by that of a rainstorm that
occurred in the mountains of eastern Jamaica, in November, 1909.
At a place called Silver Hill, the
fall—if correctly measured—amnunl-
ed to 135 inchas in eight day's, of
which 114.50 fell in five days; 96 50
in four days, and 57.50 in two days.
Tbat these figures are at least approximately correct is shown hy the

'PHK Kaiiiily Herald and Weekly .Star of Montreal, acknowledged to he
1 lho greatest and hest family anil farm paper on the continent, liiuTon
many occasions given its readers most delightful premium picture,
lint this season they have secured what is beyond any question of doulit
thi; best picture ever offered newspaper readers. It is entitled "Home
Again" and describes a touching but joyful incident between two friends
who meet after anxious separation. e
"Laddie," a collie dog, famous for hia beauty and gentleness, winners
nf many prizes at ting snows, the pride of the family and neighborhood,
bus been stolen, and after many days' absence he escapes one night from
bis caplor.antl returns home on a snowy winter's morning with the rope
which he broke in bis struggles for freedom dangling from his collar.
His familiar bark brings his little mistress, Marjorie, to the door and
she throws her arms around her trusty playmate's neck with cries of joy
which bring her mother and brother to the door. "Laddie" is equally
delighted to be "Home Again," and answers her welcome by putting his
paws on her shoulder and resting his head against her breast with a little
whine, whicli in his dog language means—"Wbere I love is Home."
The sweet-faced young mother, a woman of soft curves, tender eyes
and parted lips—the two glad-eyed children—an eager boy witb hair like
Itis mother's and the quick gesture of excited boyhood; the warm-hearted
girl with rippling locks, ber affectionate arms around the shaggy neck of
ih? beautiful collie, all go to form a picture tbat will win a favored place
on the walls of any home.
The picture is by the celebrated artist, Arthur J. Elsley, famous for
his skilful and sympathetic painting of children and animals.
The beautiful picture "Home Again" on heavy plate paper 22x29
inches all ready for framing will be mailed FREE to every subscriber of
I'he Sun and Family Herald and Weekly Star for 1912.
The small sum of 41.50 will secure the two papers for a full year in-

Your Boy
Who at tender age must face the
hard, cold world without preparation or protection.
No. You could not think of such
a thing. And yet, would you neglect
your health its you do if you waited
to think of your family and how they
would get tiling without you.
You have not the old-time vigor and
energy. You gj home tia'd and worn
out, feel cr ass anal irritable, luck the
old-time smile and good eheor which
brought sunshine into your home at
your arrival.
You don't sleep well, the brain is
not so clear and active, lattle things
annoy and worry you, in short tne
nervous system is exhausted. You
know this, but do not wnnt to consult a doctor, and scarcely know
what to tlo.
Use Dr. Chase's Nerve Food. It
cannot fail to do you good, for it is
made up of the elements of which
'your rundown system is most in need.
Through the medium of the blood it
sends new energy and vigor to every
organ of the human hotly.
You can feel yourself getting
stronger every day. You can prove
it by noting your increase in weight.
You will sleep better, appetite and
digestion will improve and you will
feel again the courage and energy
which can only exist side by side
with good heulth and steady nerves
You can put a stop to the wasting
process today by beginning this treatment. You need not let delay bring
you a day nearer to nervous collapse
This treatment is not a stimulant
to whip up tired nerves and brain.
It cures in nature's way by filling the
system with rich, red blood. It will
not cure in a day hut its benefits ore
natural and lasting. With persistence on your part it will work wonders.

WORKING MEN MAYORS.
Aristocratic Britain Hu Had Several
ef Them.
Nowadays lt it always possible for
the humblest boy in the town to become its head if he hat the brains
and "push." Recent years have
abundantly proved this by showing ua
several noted working men who have
risen to the mayoral chairs of their
native or adopted towns.   ■
Indeed, two very well-known mayors of a year or two past were men
who had both actually risen trom the
workhouse ol the place which they
served later as chief magistrates.
These were Mr. Will Crooks, late
M.P., who was elected mayor of Poplar, and Aid. Hornbrook, one of Ue-
vonport's most respected citizens,
whom that large town placed in its
n.ayoral chair a year or two before
Poplar did itself a similar honor with
Will Crooks.
Many people will still remember
how Cardiff raised a working man to
the highest honor the Welsh city
eould confer on him, and not only
so, but it chose him for Lord Mayor
during the year when the late King
Edward had promised to visit tlie
eity, and His Majesty was so pleased
with the way the mayor received him
and curried out his duties on behu.t
of Cardiff that he knighted "Sir" Wil
liam Grossman on the spot.
Then, year or two back, Kingston-
mi-Thames did justice to one of its
hardest workers on the local counci!
by electing Councillor Clarke to the
mayoral seat. Mr. Clarke had been
a policeman in the royal ancient bor
ough, and in consequence many ot
tlte elite of the place were averse to
his being made chief magistrate.
Twice before, when he had been pro
posed by those who recognized his
merit aud services, he had been defeated by such narrow majorities as
one or two, but at length even his
one-time rivals had to admit that
there wns no other man so fitted foi
tlie mayoralty as the former police,
man, and thus Mr. Clarke rea peal at
last the well-deserved reward of faith-
ful service.
Breezy Blackpool did equal honor to
itself and Aid. Brodie when it made
the latter gentleman its mayor in
1904, for the well-known alderman
had formerly been a policeman iu
Manchester.
Mr. Timothy Owen was still a sig
nalmun on tbe line when his fellow-
townsmen at Aberavon, Glamorgan
shire, raised him to the mayoral chair
No man in the place was more highly
respected than the popular signal
man, und in proof of this no fewer
than 300 railwuymen, headed by Mr
Uichard Bell, accompanied Mr. Ov.ee
to church on his first visit there.
One ol the best-known men 111 the
southwest country, and certainly oan
of the most popular in Plymouth, it
Aid. Bond, who hae several time-
been elected mayor, Mr. Bond began
bis striking career as a boy in a sol;
eitor's office at Plymouth, and worked
his way up through the various ranks
until he finally found himseil sitting
in the chair of the mayor.

King's Strange Hobby.
The late King of Siam hud an ex
traordinary hobby—that of eoilectluji
empty match-boxes ol all nation.-
About this royal fad an interesting
ttory is related. Daring one of nil
visits to. Britain the King, whilst pasting down Bond Street, London, one
afternoon, accompanied by two mem
Iters ol hit suite, espied an empty
match-box, which had been discurdel
by ils owner and thrown away into
the middle ol the thoroughfare. Without a moment's thought the monarch
dashed into the middle ol the crowded
trnlfic, grasped the much-coveted
treasure, and wat nearly run over hy
a passing cab. The fact, however,
that he was able to add a new specimen to his collection compensated
him tor the risk which be hud run.
Not a Royalty.
Mr. Melton Prior, the war corre-
s;undent and artist, who saw about
twenty-four campaigns and revolutions, died in London, Fnglnnd, on
Nov. 2. Ho accompanied King George
V„ then the Duke of York, on his
tour of Canada in 1901. During the
royal progress through the West, Mr.
Prior was very much interested in the
scenes in thnt vast country. At one
of the Western towns a prolonged
stop was made during the night, and
a large crowd came to the station
to catch a glimpse of the duke. It
was dark nnd wet, and as Mr, Prior
leaned from the window the crowd
made a rush to tee who the distinguished Britisher might be.
"No," said the artist, waving them'
genially away. "I'm not the duke,,
and I'm not the duchess, and I 'can't1
even make a sjeech."

IT was a coollsh evening, and at
Ur. Bowser came up from dinner and aaw tbe blaze of tbe gas
logs and noticed the cat on the
hearth he turned to lira. Bowser and
asked:
"What on earth do men do wbs have
Bo little wife, no fireside, no home?"
"I am glad you are pleased," she
answered, with a smile of pride oa her
lace.
"Tea, I am more than pleased. 1
should be an lngrate If I wen- not
Without the house there is dreariness; within Is good cheer. Tes; this
Is the way to live."
And he actually caught up the
blushing woman and printed a smacking kiss on her chin and laughed nt
her as she said he never would get
over his courting days. He lifted up
the cat and stroked her fur; be patted
hla leg and whistled. He was tbe

he was not the other Bowser. After
a bit desiring to entertain Mrs. Bowser, he said:
"That was a dreadful affair ln St
Louis the other day."
"What dear?"
"Why, the murder of an actress by
s Jealous actor. She waa tbe ingenue
of Ihe company."
He pronounced the word "lnjnncw,"
and Mrs. Bowser made ber mistake ln
saying:
"Tbat is pronounced ss If spelled
•ongenne.' you know."
"Ob. lt Is? Since wben, may I inquire?"
"For a hundred years, perhaps.
However, It makes ao difference,"
"But I think It does. I aim to pronounce my words right and I don't
care to be picked np and humiliated.
I aay the word Is 'injunew.'"       r
"Well, let It go at that"
"Then don't be so quick to pick jpe
np again. Tbe otber day, wben 1 said
'cen-tri-fu-gal.' I noticed you looking
•t me ln a queer way."
"Because I was wondering If yon
meant cen-trlf-ugal."
"No, ma'am, I didn't I meant Jnst
what I said." '
"But there Is no word pronounced
cen-trt-fu-gal."
"What! What! Mrs. Bowser, I
came home to pass a pleasant evening
at my own fireside. Do you wish to
drive mc out on the streets?"
"No, of course not"
Mutterings of a Storm.
"Tben don't as good as call me a
jackass. I was pronouncing words
when yon were ln yonr cradle. When
I came home the other evening Mrs.
Andrews was here. I burst ln on you
and then asked If I was de trop. You
looked at me as if yon wanted to bite
my head off.   Wby was It?"
"Because you made the 'trop' part
of tbe word rhyme with bop. It is
pronounced de trow."
"Not on your life, woman! I have
used the word for over forty years,
and tbls Is the flrst time I was ever
picked up on It A husband can stand
a great deal from his wife, but Bhe
mnst not Interfere with his pronunciation."
"Not even when he's wrong?" she
•sked.
"But he can't be wrong."
"You were rending an article aloud
tbe other evening, and yon read tbat a
certain man bad got his conge. Ton
made It rhyme with sponge."
"And It was right—a hundred times
right 1 learned that word when I
was twelve years old." _  ._. 	
"Tes, of a country schoolma'am, ana
she waa wrong abont lt It is pronounced as if spelled conjay."
"Never—never ln this wide world!
Do not drive me too far, woman!"
"I am talking ln a perfectly good
natnred way, and yon are foolish to
get mad. You see, I have many more
opportunities to study out sucb things
than yon."
"Which Is to say that I go blunder*
hig along any old way like a blind
mule.   Another Insult!"
"Where none was Intended. When
nreen nnd bis vrlfeiwere over here the
other evening yon said lndl-ca-tlve for
Indicative."
"And I waa right—forty times right"
"You are not wltb the dictionaries."
"Wbose dictionaries? Because balf
a dozen old bumps on logs get together
and decide tbat certain words shall be
pronounced according to tbelr Ideas
mnst I be bound by them? By ths eternal, not"
"Well, yon ean hava a dictionary of
yoar own If yon wish."
Bowser's Own Dictionary.
"And I have got one, Mrs. Bowser.
It's the Bowser dictionary. It pronounces words as they are spelled.
C-o-w means cow every time."
"How do yon get along with
pl-e-g-h-m?" .
"It la spelled f-l-e-m and Is so pronounced. It Is tne same witb c-a-t-a-r.
You can pronounce your words as you,
think best bnt don't try to cram your
way down my throat. It ts simply Impudence for you to try It"
"Shall you publish your dictionary
and seek to have lt Introduced Into
schools?" asked Mrs. Bowser after a
long silence, during which Mr. Bowser
dropped the cat to the floor and gave
ber a hoist with his foot
"Certainly. There has long been a
demand for snch a work, and lt ts
growing every day. See what nonsense.
In tbe good old days we spelled It
w-a-g-g-o-n, and lt was so pronounced.
Now they bave knocked out one 'g.'
and what is lt but wa-gon? Wby not
knock a 'g' ont of buggy?"
"How do you treat the word 'valet?
Do you make lt rhyme with mallet?"
"Of course 1 do. If valet Is valley,
then mallet Is malley. If tbe born
fools want to give a twist to tbelr
words, as If tbey were being twisted
out with a corkscrew, let tbem go
ahead. We have a street In town
named Montague. Why should any
one call It Mon-ta-gew? Wben we
speak of the plague we don't pronounce
it pla-new, do we? It Is Montague or
It's nothing. When I got out of bed
the other morning I mentioned to you
that I felt leth-ar-gic. I aaw you grinning to yourself."
"I bave always heard lt called lethargic," she quietly replied.
"And you may for a year or two to
come, but there's a new deal on hand.
I was In bones when this discussion
enme up thut I mlgbt get a few pointers from you, but lt Is needless to
sny that I have been bitterly disappointed. I suppose tf I sbould say thnt
a certain person was cor-pulent you'd
tind fuult with the word?"
He Quite Home.
"I have always beard lt pronounced
corpulent."
"Well, go on hearing. My own fire
side Is not for me. If I come home
and sit down for a cheerful evening
you must always bob up wltb some
thing to spoil lt. I am going out. I
may come home Inebriated and lu n
mood to brook no Insults."
"If you remain we can talk of something else, can't we?" she asked. "1
haven't Insulted yon, .and 1 haven't
said an unkind wori I know that
there is the. word cough and tbe word
coffee, and If you want me to put an
'e' on cough I'll do It"
"Too late, woman—too later' he said
as be waved a band at her and departed for the family drug store. The
druggist had ten minutes to spare,
and he listened patiently to Mr. Bow-
ser's dictionary scheme nnd the radical changes proposed. Wben the story
hud been told he quietly said:
"Tliere Is one word I hope you won't
think of changing. If you do I shnll
not know how to tblnk of you. It's it
little word of three letters, but It
moans much. You are It and It Is
you."
It was three dnys before Mr. Bowser caught on. Then he went over und
dnred the druggist outdoors, but It
wns too late. The price of squills bnd
again advanced.
THE ULTRA MICROSCOPE.
It   Detects   Objects   Whose   Size   or
Shape Cannot Be Seen.
It will come aB news to most people
that science has invented instruments
'hat go two degrees beyond the most
■xtwerful microscope in detecting
tmall objects. The first of these is
known as the ultra violet microscope.
This takes advantage of the fact that
a photographic plate can often sea
things that the human eye cannot,
and for the following reason:
Things cunot reflect light nnd
consequently ennnot be seen that are
smaller than the smullert wave length
of light Cat falls on them. Violet
light is the smallest thut can be possibly Been with the human eye. But
there exists a much smaller wave
length in the part of the spectrum
not visible to the eye called the ultra
violet light. This hae the peculiar
property ol affecting a photographic
plate just as any other light would,,
so that we get a true picture of the
minute object that is under examination.
Thus the deficiency of the eye It
made up for by a mechanical invention of the human tin"
violet light, though not detectable by
the human eye, is easily seen by small
animals and insects. It has been tried
with great success on ants especially.
With this ultra violet microscope the
smallest objects that can be photographed with definiteness of dimensions are brought out with wonderful
distinctness.
But there is one other instrument
that can detect much smaller objects,
though their shape or size cannot be
seen, and that is known as the ultra
microscope. This takes advantage of
the fact that a small object will scatter any light that falls on it. To
make the meaning clear, all of us
have noticed a beam of tight entering
a room full of floating dust particles.
We see only the dust particles in the
beam of light. The reason we seo
them is because each little particle
scatters the light that falls on it in
all directions, and some of the scattered light enters the eye.
y This is the plincipl^aon which the
ultra' microscope is 'Based.' Light is
made to fall on tjie oh'ject 'in such a
way that none: of the direct light can
enter the-eye... Then the particles
appear', as .small points of light. In
this way it has been proved that the
coloriruj.in red glass is not diffiused,
but cftnsists of thousands of little red
particles close together.
WOMEN AND CIGARS.
Hit Majetty't Hint.
It is well known that the King considers hirsute appendages as an unnecessary adjunct for a clergyman.
Some time ago His Majesty, being on
a visit to a well-known peer, observed
that the chaplain, who was also rector of the parish, would be improved
in appearance by removing his moustache. This criticism was told to the
young cleric, who forthwith took the
hint and appeared clean-shaven.
On the King's next visit he inquired as to the identity of the clergyman
who was invited to dinner, not recognizing his changed appearance. Some
very complimentary remarks and not
a little amusement on the King's part
followed the discovery of how His Majesty's former hint had been acted
upon in so practical a manner.
A Powerful Prett.
The Philadelphia mint use a presi

That Form of the Fragrant Weed It
Becoming Popular With Ladiet.
During the hearing of a case which
came before Mr. Justice Grantham in
London a few days ago, it was mentioned that one of the members of a
certain well-known ladies' club smoked cigars. Whether they were mild,
medium, or full-flavored wus not stated, but the fact that a woman can
smoke a cigar tends to dispel the
popular notion that she is constitutionally unfit for such a habit.
As a matter of fnct. the Dowager-
Empress of Russia, who is an inveterate smoker, prefers n mild cigar to a
cigarette;  so does   the   Countess of
Paris,  the  mother of  the Queen  of
i Portugal.   When a reporter, however,
I called on two or three West-end firms
of cigar merchants, he could get no
confirmation of the statement made
I in a certain pnpaT tea the effect that
cigars  were displacing  cigurettes  in
the affections of society women.
"At the same time," said the manager of one firm, "I believe that the
example of the member ot the ladies' club you mention is being fob
lowed to a certain extent in society,
although it is difficult to obtain definite information on the point because, while ladies do not mind smoking cigarettes in public, cigar-smoking would attract too much attention
to be pleasunt. Consequently they do
it in private.
"I am led to believe that this is
so by the increased demand of late for
mild cigars. Ladies order them, presumably for male friends und relatives; but the type of cigar they order
is not popular enough amongst men
to warrant the unusual demand. Then,
again, I know of three Indies who
order the same brand of mild cigar,
antl as they nre acquainted with one
another there is not much doubt that
they have recommended these cigars
to one another lor their own smoking."
Another firm admitted thnt amongst
their customers were two ladies who
•egularly ordered supplies ol cigars,
their favorite brand heittL' n miniature
denr nbout 2 1-2 Inches long und a little thicker thnn n cigarette. One of
the ladieB ortlered regularly every
month 100 of these miniature cigurs.
This firm also numbered amongst its
customers a lady well known in society, who now smokes a briar pipe
of the ordinary size and make instead
ol cigarettes.
IN BOER UNO.
Young Woman Tells of Family Lil*
In th* Transvaal.
"Life is not lonely or dull on a
South African farm, although town
folk, accustomed to getting up at 9
o'clock in tbe morning and dawdling
through the day, pretend to think it
is," writes a young woman of that
part of the world to a London newspaper.
"There is always something to be
done. Beiore sunrise my brothers are
up and out with the men, looking after the flocks, mending fences, inspecting here, improving there. Our farm
has 30,000 acres and carries roughly
0,000 sheep and perhaps 1,000 head ol
horses and cattle.
"There is no place lor children like
a South African farm. We were out
in the open all day long. Every tree
on the farm we climbed, and in the
orchard, too, eating the apples beiore
they were ripe, for which we were
soundly whipped. That also was
good, for the green apples did us no
harm, and the whipping taught us to
respect our elders.
"In a creek by the river stood a
willow tree which we used like a
flip-flap. Bending its point over to
the bank, one of us would get on and
be switched across, but if on the
other side the branch was not caught
and held, then the luckless rider
would oscillate like a pendulum of a
clock put upside down, till at last he
(or ehe) must fall into the water.
Then he would be fished out and we
would all Bit on the bank while his
clothes dried in the hot sun.
"Every animal on the farm we rode,
ponies and cows, and even ostriches.
There is nothing so comfortable as an
ostrich, warm and soft, and it moves
like a feather bed on springs. You
tuck your knees well below the outstretched wings and take a firm grip,
and when they let the bird go you
are floating in the air. As for dismounting, it is quite easy; you have
only to fall off backward.
"Far from being loncrjr, my recollection of our home in those early
days is that it was like a small hotel.
The farm lies on the high road between Bloembontein and Jagersfon-
tein, and people traveling from one
town to the other seemed to take it
for granted that they could stop there
for the night.
"One night, I remember, we entertained the Hon. St. John Brodrick,
who was at that time making a tour
of South Africa. After supper our
talk turned upon the prickly pear
fruit, and our visitor expressed a desire to see one. A Kaffir boy was Bent
out to get some, and when they were
shown to him Mr. Brodrick . incautiously took one up and put it to his
mouth, covering his face and hands
with the tiny, irritating prickles. I
have thought since that the incident
was typical. We Boers are somewhat
like the prickly pear, sound and kind
at heart, but sticking all our spikes
into tliose who handle lis the wrong
way!
"It may be supposed that housekeeping under such circumstances
was not very easy, for our Kaffir girls,'
though they are plentiful and willing;
are very stupid and need to be'oon-
Btantly overlooked. I never heard,
however, of any Boer lady who broke
down, nnd had to indulge herself in
a rest cure. The air of the veldt is in
itself better than any 'cure.' All, such
air! When, you breathe it, everything
seems possibly,'even the most' impossible things.' f. think that was really
how the war—thut most impossible
war—came about.
"No one wants to speak about the
war with England now; only to forget
it. One ot my brothers fought from
the first; then, when we were harder
pushed, the second joined the commando, too. My third brother, who
was a doctor, served on our ambulance. As for me, I was in England
at the time, but it did not seem rieht
for me toilive there, so I went to Holland, where ot leo6t they understood
our Tual Umgue. And after it was all
over I went out to Africa again.
"Of course, my brothers came back
to thc farm: they could not have gone
to any other country, any more than
my father could have gone in his day.
So they began the farm all over again.
Our house had not been burned down, |
but it had been ubniialoned to stray
raiders und-tb the elements Ior over
two yeurs."

Australian Pearl Fisheries.
The treasure seeker in Australian
tropic waters need not confine his
a operations to pearling, for heche-dc-
mer gathering and shark and turtle
fishing ure nlso lucrative occupations,
though as yet, owing to the greater
attractiveness of pearling still in
their infancy.
While the price of pearlshell keeps
over $750 the pearler's income Is assured. He can regard his enterprise
ss an investment on the she'! basis,
and the chance of pearls odtls tlie
gaming element so deur lo the average Australian. The nor'-west shell
hits the best place on tlte world's
market; the northern shell, though
perhaps more abundant, is of an inferior quulity, and "stones" ure not
so often met with.
Thursday Island with its palms,

have some pretensions to architectural style, but lbe business houses,
mostly in the hands of Chinese or
Jap, ure squalid—a blot on the natural beauty ol their surroundings.
Away from his native bamboo build-

The  Oldttt   Pitwoman.
At the time of Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee, 1897, there were fifteen
or sixteen women living in Tranent
who hatl worked underground in the
coal mines. Now the number is reduced to three—Jnnet Murdoch, Helen Reid, and Isabella Sommerville,
better known as Bell Somers, and widow ot the late Sergt. John Harrison,
the enlister ot Hector Mueilonald.
Sommerville is now in her eighty-
sixth year, nnd mny safely be Bet down
as the oldest pitwomnn in the world.
She wns laorti nt Old Cruighnll, in
Mid-Lothian, wns tnken down below
at Edmonstone Colliery when between
six and seven years of age, and had
to lenrn "slype drnwing," crawling on
hands nnd knees among mud with a
tail-chain attached to the empty or
full slype, and pulling it behind her
like n pony. She afterwards worked
at Hurley Muir till the women were
expelled from the pits in 1813.—Glasgow Herald
