that any man who is not crazy can

A large number of residdents of
the city and ranchers of the valley
went down to Danville laBt Sunday to witness a practical demonstration of the American current motor. The inventor claims
that thiB motor, which has been
brought to a Btate of perfect mechanical efficiency, is today the
world's cheapest method of generating power to be utilized for use in
factories and for running pumping
aud other machinery for raising
water for irrigating ground; for mining purposes, and for drivi ig dynamos, air compressors, etc. The test
to whicb the motor at Dinville
bas been subjected fully substantiate
all tbe claims that have been made
for tbe machine.
A No. 1 motor, which ie anchored
in a miles per hour current at tbe
Kettle Valley line bridge, developed
2.25 horsepower, and raised 150
gallons of water per minute to a
height of eighteen feet. The motor
is attached to scow, „ with open
ends. It has nine 1.5x5 flights,^
five feet apart, attached to endless
chains. The power is derived from
the water pressing against these
flights. When the flights travel
up-stream they are above the surface of the water, and assume a flat
position. This is the smallest size of
motor manufactured. The price of
it is $400, complete wilh pump,
scow aud all tbe machinery required
to set it iu motion. Four larger
sizes of motors are also manufac
It iB claimed for the motors that
they are scientifically and correctly
designed, as tbey ieceive and discharge the water without jar or
shock. They are provided with a
floor, which together with the sides
of the galvanized steel boats, forma
a perfect channel in which the
spring steel flights work without
friction, yet they fit so closely aB to
prevent any water escaping around
their ends, or beneath them, 'thus
the maximum power ia secured from
the water controlled. In Ihis type
of motor is obtained a uniform pressure on the flights throughout the
entire length of lhe machine. Tbe
boats are constructed of galvanized
steel, and are designed to withstand
the strain   and  pressure of swiflly
flowing streams. The flights are
provided with a practical and efficient device lhat enables a child
to throw the motor in and out of
gear and start and stop it at will.

Despite her assumed gaiety there
was just a little catch in Vera's voice.
If Venner noticed it he did not appear to do so. For the next hour or
so he meant resolutely to put the
past out of his mind, and give himself over to the ecstasy of the moment.
AU too soon the dinnor come to an
end. and Gurdon appeared.
"This is my wife." Venner said
simply. "Dearest, Mr. Gurdon is a
very old friend of mine, and I have
practically no secrets from him. All
the same, he did not know till last
night thnt I wns married—until you
came into the room and my feelingB
got the better of nie. But we can
trust Gurdon."
"I think I am to be relied upon,"
Gurdon said with a smile. "You will

liked, if possible, to be a little closer
to Vera, for if there were any dangers
threatening her he would be just as
powerless to help her now as if he
had been in another part of the town.
He walked slowly down the side ot
the house, and noted that there wns
a fine garden behind, and a small
^reen door leading to the lane. Acting on the impulse of the moment,
i he tried the door, which yielded- to
i his touch. If he had been asked why
I he did this thing he would have found
it exceedingly difficult to reply. Still,
the thing was done, and Gurdon walked forward over the wide expanse of
lawn till he could make out at length
a row of windows looking out from
the back of the house. It was not so
very easy to discern nil this, for the
night wns dark, nnd the back of the
house darker still. Presently a light
flared out in one of the rooms, nnd
then Gurdon could make out the dome
of a large conservatory leading from
the garden to the house.
"I shall find myself in the hands of
the police, if I don't take care," Gurdon said to himself. "What an ass
I am to embark on an adventure like
this. It isn't as if I had the slightest

seeing that I "
Gurdon broke off suddenly, conscious
of the fact that another of the rooms
was lighted now—a large one, by the
side of the conservatory. In the silence of the gnrden it seemed to him
thnt he could henr voices raised angrily, and then a cry, as if of pain from
somebody inside.

"Perhaps you had better take a

came in, and advancing to their table
proffered Vera a visiting card, on the
back of which a few words hnd been
Bcribbled. The girl looked n little
anxious and distressed as her eyes
ran over the writing on the card.
Then she rose hurriedly.
"I am afraid I shall have to go,"
she said. "I hnve been anticipating
this for some little time."
She turned to the waiter and asked
if her maid was outside, to which the
man responded that it was the maid
who had brdught the curd, and that
she was waiting with her wraps in the
corridor. Vera extended her hand to
Gurdon as she rose to go.
"I am exceedingly sorry," she said.
"This hns been a pleasant evening for
me; perhaps the most pleasant evening with one exception that I ever
spent in my life. Gerald will know
what evening I mean."
As she finished sho smiled tenderly
nt Venner. He hnd no words in re
ply. Just at that moment he was
filled with passionate and rebellious
anger. He dared not trust himself to
speak, conscious ns he wns that Vera'c
burden was already almost more than
she could bear. She held out her
hand to hirn with an imploring little
gesture, as if she understood exactly
what was passing in his mind.
"You will forgive me," she whispered, "I am sure you will forgive me. i
It is nothing but duty which compel;
me to go. I would far rather stay
here and be happy."
Venner took the extended hand and
firessed it tenderly. His yearning eyes
ooked nfter the retreating figure; then
suddenly, he turned to Gurdon, who
affected to be busy over a cignr.
"I want you to do something for
me," he snid. "It is n strange fancy,
but I should like you to follow her. I
suppose I am beginning to get old and
nervous; nt nny rate, I am full of
silly fancies to-night. I am possessed
with the idea that my unhappy little
girl is thrusting herself into some
danger. You can see how impossible it
is for me fo dog her footsteps, but
your cose is different. Of course, if
you like to refuse "
"I nm not going to refuse," Gurdon said, "I can see nothing dishonourable.   I'll go nt once, if you like."
Venner nodded curtly, and Gurdon
rose from the tnble. He pnssed out
into the street just ns the slim figure
of Vern was descending the steps of
the hoH. He hnd no difficulty in
recognising her outline, though she
was clnd from hend to foot now in a
long, black wrap, nntl her fair hair
disguised under a hood of the same
material, Rather to Gordon's stir-
prise, the girl had not enlled a cab
She wns Hulking down the street now
with n firm determined step, ns of one
who knew exactly where she was going, and meant to get there in us

Gurdon followed cautiously ond at a
distance. He was nol altogether satisfied iri his own mind, now, that his
action was quite as straightforward
as it might have been. Still, he had
given his promise, and he was not inclined to bnck out of it npw. For
some quarter of nn hour hfl followed,
until Vera et length halted before a
house somewhere in the neighborhood
of Grosvenor Square. It wns a fine,
large corner mansion, but so for ns
(■union could see there wns not a
light in the place from parapet t<
basement, He could see Vera going
np the steps; he was close enough to
henr the sound nf nn electric bell:
then a light blazed in the hall, nnd
the door was opened. So fnr ns Gur
don could see. it wns nn old mnn who

long-grey heard, nnd n fnc lined nnd
scored with the rnviigcs of time. .Ml
this happened in on Instant, The,
door wns closed ngnin, nnd the whole
house left in darkness.
Gurdon paused, it little uncertain
as to whnt to do next.   He would hnve
none too safe, for now he found himself bruised and half stunned, lying on
his bnck on a cold, hard floor, amidst
a mass of broken'giass and rusty ironwork
Startled and surprised as he was.
the noise of the breaking glass sounded in Gurdon's ears like the din of
some earthquake. He struggled to
his feet, hoping thnt the gods would
be kind to him, and thnt he could
get away before his presence there
was discovered. But he was still
dazed and confused; his head ached
painfully, and he groped in the pitch
darkness without any prospect of escape. He c^uld nOwhere find on avenue. So fnr as he could judge, he
was absolutely caught like a rat in a
Hn half smiled to himBelf; he was
still too dnzed to grnsp the significance of his position, when a light
suddenly appeared overhead, at the
top of a flight of stairs, and a hoarse
voice demanded to know who was
there. In the same dreamy kind of
way. Gurdon was Just conscious of
the fact tht.t a. strong pair of arms
lifted him from thc floor, and that he
was being carried up the steps. In
the same dreamy fashion, he wob cognisant of warmth and light, a luxurious atmosphere, and rows unon rows
of beautiful flowers everywhere. He
would, no doubt, awake presently
and find that the whole thing waa a
dream. Meanwhile, there was nothing
visionary about the glass of brandy
which somebody hud put to his lips
I or about the hands which were brushing him down nnd removing all
traces of his recent adventure.
"When you feel quite up to it, sir,"
a quiet, respectful voice snid, "my
master would like to see you. He if
naturally curious enough to know
whnt you were doing in the g,,rden.'
"I am afraid your master must 'nave
his own way," Gurdon said grimly
"I am feeling pretty well now, thanks
to the brandy. If you will take me
to your master, I will try to explain
The servant led the way info a
large, handsome apnrtment, where a
man in evening dress was seoted in
n big armchair before the fire. He
looked round with a peculiar smile as
Gurdon came in.
"Well, sir,'' he soi<l, "And what
does this mean?"
Gurdon had no voice to reply, for
the mon in the armchair was the
handsome cripple— the hero of the
The Little Man at the Pillar.
Close to the famous clock in the
Cathedral of Strassburg there is a little man in stone gazing up at the
angel's pillar which supports the
south wing of the cathedral. Long ago
the little man who is now sculptured
in stone stood there in fl^sh and
b'.ood. Ho used to stare up at the
pillar with a criticising eye which
swept it from top to bottom und again
from bottom to top. Then he would
shake his htad doubtfully each time.
It happened once that a sculptor
passed the cathedral and saw the little man looking up as if he did not
like the looks of the pillar.
"It seems to me that you are finding fault with tbe pillar, my good
fellow," said the stonecutter, and the
little man nodded as if pleased to bi
found out.
"Well, what do you think of itl
Speak out, my man," said the sculptor.
"The pillar is fine enough," the little man tald slowly. "The figures on
it are beautiful, but I fear that slender
pillar cannot hold up the heavy weight
much longer. Soon it will totter and
fall, and all will go to pieces.-"
An odd fancy seized the stonecutter.
"You shall stay right where you are
always, gazing at the pillar until it
falls under the heavy vault."
And he brought from his workshop
his hammer and chisel and made in
stone a figure of the little man just
as he was, looking upward with s
knowing face and an important air.
And there this little figure in stone
stands to-day, awaiting the tall of the
Ninety "Not Out."
"If I had my life to live again I
would, without hesitation, be a Free
Church minister. There never was
such golden opportunity for the man
with a Christian message as to-day."
Thus Dr. Guinness Rogers, the veteran preacher, orator, and politician,
who recenth' en'ered upon his linety-
first year. Dr. Rogers has a ministerial record of sixty-five years and is
the oldest surviving ex-chairman of
the Congregational Union. And, in
spite of his great age, his voice is
still M cleor ns n bell, and his energy
amazing. Needless to say, he has
some interesting recollections, and
can look baek to the time when there
was hardly a daily paper in the provinces. In the house o' his father,
a minister, they had to be satisfied
with a weekly journal which cost
fivepence a copy. To-day, as he once
remarked, porters pick out of an empty train more newspapers than were

The White Lady.
Gurdon looked hopelessly nbejl
him utterly at a loss for anything to
say. The whole thing had been so
unexpected so very opposite to tha
commonplace ending he hod Anticipated that he wns too daied and confused to do anything but smile in an
inane and foolish manner. He had
rather looked forward to seeing some
eccentric individual some elderly recluse who lived there with a servant
or two-. And here he wns face to face
with the man who nt the present moment, wns lo him the most interesting in London.
"You can tnke your time," the cripple said. "I am anxious for you to
believe thnt I am not in the least
hurry. The point of the problem is
this; a well dressed man, evidently n
gentleman, is discovered at a late
hour in the evening in my cellar. As
the gentleman in question is obviously sober, one naturally feels a little
curiosity ns to whnt it nil means."
The speaker snokc quite slowly end
clearly, and with a sarcastic emphasis that caused Gurdon to writhe im
potently. Every word end gesture on
the part of the cripple spoke of <i
strong mind and a clear intellect in
that twisted body. Despite the playful acidity of !iin words, there was a

At a wedding, celebrated not long
ago in a Canadian town, there was a
womnn Iriend of the bridegroom who
had net seen him for two years and
who impulsively kissed the bride on
being introduced.
"You know, I used to know your !
husband quite well and he even read *
me extracts Irom the letters ol bis j
'dear little Jessie.'   I've wanted ever
SO much to meet you."
The bride drew herself up with a ,
haughty dignity snd froze the impulsive, new-found triend.
"Excuse me," she said coldly, "my
name is Eleanor."
The bridegroom mentally resorted

Strange Origin and Improvtment of
Australian Merinet.
C. E. W. Bean, of Sydney, has written in an Australian paper of the
great sheep industry. His story is iu
part as follows.—
A century ago, when Australia was
a dumping ground for England's
scum, a British fleet received from a
Spanish fleet a present of merino
sheep, at a time when to export merinos from Spain w.ts a criminal offence. The little flock reached Australia, and from it ate descended the
hundred million merinos which have
made Australia great and wealthy,
despite her small population.
Vastly improved is the modern merino, for the original of 3 1-2 pounds
to a fleece has be. n raised to 12
pounds, and there Hie rams in Australia which shear 40 pounds.
Nowadays the good land near the
coast is being given nver to agriculture, and the sneep ure driven back
further into the Jesort. A terrible
desert it is at times, where not one
green leaf can be seen, when the red
dust with which it is covered gets
blown away—and only the bare hard
bones ofthe earth are lift. Then sheep
die by the million fur want of the
smallest scrap of nourishment, and
are sometimes killed ly the thousanu
because it is hopeless to expect to
keep them alive.
Then comes the rain, and as if by a
miracle the whole land is green again,
the flocks increase out of all bounds,
and the men who- have been nearly
ruined, make new fortunes in a few
yeara. That is happening now. From
1896 to 1903 occurred the biggest
drought known, and many station-
holders lost their all. Since then
there has been a steady succession
of good seasons and the problem now
ia what to do with (he enormous overplus of old ewes. Such are the vicissitudes of that strange land, the oldest
pert of the earth's exposed surface.
Some of the great sheep runs cover
a million acres, or about 1,560 square
miles. Each run ia divided into paddocks, which cover all Australia. The
average western paddock contains 100
square miles. If one fence is on tha
horizon behind, the other is over the
horizon ahead. You could walk till
you died in that paddock without seeing a fence. Lost men have before
now found the fence and died alongside of it before it led them anywhere.
There may be a hut in each paddock with a boundary rider—some-
limes two, living together. Everyday
except Buuuay, the boundary rider is
expected to be out in his paddock.
About one day in iwo he may spot
something l:ke a line of posts, which
is probably a line of sheep in mirage
on the horizon. Occasionally he cuts
through a wing of them. He sees a
man, or gets a mail, perhaps, once in
uiree wee**. Aud yel, tne boundary
men get to like the lonely life.
Then, there is "the boss," the lord
of many acres, a man of strong character and a liberal education, living a
life not unlike tbat of an English
country gentleman, in hit remote
home, but carrying on his work with
the ability and keenness of a man
who has been trained in business.
The third body of men who live by
the sheep industry are the shearers,
who work through the country from
north to south, making plenty of
money, and Jiving in a rough way on
the fat of the land as they pass from
one shed to the other. They are a
class unlike any other.
Tha  Polictman't  Dangerous  Lift.
About one in every six London
policeman is injured during the year.
More than one thousand men were
on the sick list from injuries received
while on duty, and nearly seven
hundred rnore who were injured off
duty. Some of the cases were so
serious as to disable the men for a
week or more, and these amounted
to no fewer than 677. Besides these,
there were twice as many injured less
severely, who were not placed on the
sick list.
The following examples show the
multiplicity of dangers to which the
police are exposed: 2,266 mrtn were
assaulted or injured when making arrests; 102 bitter, by docs; 51 hurt by
persons not arrested; 17 injured while
dispersing disorderly crowds; 44
hurt, some very severely, when stopping runaway homes; 21 injured
when assisting fallen or -restive
horses; 25 kicked, trodden on, or
knocked down by horses; 31 injured
(14 very severely) by vehicles when
regulating traffic; and 28 were injured when extinguishing fir"*.
And a further large number suffered injury by their horses falling or
throwing them, by cyclists, while rid-
ing their own bicycles, at fire drill,
by slipping and falling when examining premises, etc., bo that the
total of injuries while on duty for
the year is brought up to 3,310.

FRIDAY, APRIL 21,  1911
Thk season of the annual visitation of forest fireK is rapidly approaching, and it is to be hoped tliat the
provincial government will take more
stringent measures this summer than
it has in the past to prevent the destruction of property from this source.
The Boundary country has been a
heavy loser from forest fires in recent years, and the people are therefore clamorous for better protection.
The appointment of a few more fire
wardens might save million of dollars worth of timber and other property.
Local automobile owners do not
feel kindly disposed toward the automobile legislation enacted at the last
session of the legislature. They say
that the registration fee of $10 and an
annual tax of $10 is entirely too high
There should have been a distinction
made, some of the owners say, in the
tax on machines in cities and in
country towns and districts. In large
cities they are unquestionably a nuis-
anee and a source of great danger to
pedestrians; but in country towns,
where traffic is lighter, these dangers
are minimized, and instead of being
an evil, they are rather a blesjing, from
an advertising point of view, by giving the town or district an appearance of prosperity and modernuess.

Tbe peoplt act more cautiously in
old England than they do in progressive western Canada. A year ago The
Sun condemned the practice of using
the Qrand Forks sidewalks for advertising purposes. In a recent issue of

several municipalities in England are
asking the sanction [of parliament to
enact bylaws against this nuisance.
Apparently England is twelve months

President Taft has agreed to the
Democratic legislative program, and
the Canadiun reciprocity agreement
will be passed first. After that the
majority may enact whatever tariff
legislation it pieases, as the president
has agreed that he will not exercise
his prerogative of adjourning the
house immediately the special business for which he called it together is
accomplished. The meaning uf this
understanding is that agreement will
go into effect as soon as it is passed by
the Dominion parliament.

one will gain in the long run, but
especially the consumer, who will secure cheaper iood. Burrell is getting
his eyes open. He possibly has recognized the trend of public sentiment. —Victoria Times.

6 Year Old Girl Cured of
Kidney Trouble
Mrs Alex Moore, of Jame*** St.,
Oxford, N.S., says; "Booth's Kidney
Pills cured our little daughter, Chris
tina, aged six years, of many symp-
i toms of kidney weakness. She complained of a sore back, the kidney secretions were frequent and uncontrollable, especially at uijjht.. Her stomach was weak and her appetite poor

headaches, and the least exertion

Geo. W. Cooper, the plumber, had
his hands badly cut last Sunday by a
runaway motorcycle. He was in his
shop cleaning Dr. Dickson's 7-h.p.
machine preparatory to making a run
down to Danville. He turned on the
power to test it. Before he had time
to turn it off, the machine went out
through the closed door, taking the
panel and plate glass with it. Mr.
Cooper was jammed agaiutst the door,
aud his right hand was badly cut and
one of the fingers on the left hand was
mashed. The machine escaped without a scratch.

thia way is difficult to understand.
Were it not that there is a spirit of
gambling abroad it would not be tolerated. Everyone, except the most depraved, knows that it is wrong.
Everyone with onv conscience knows
that the people will have to pav for
it. Yet this government allows the
conditions to continue; it favors and
fathers them. Still the members of
the government and its supporters
have the hardihood to pose as bene
factors of the province. Surely if the
people of British Columbia have any
souls, any spirit of righteousness, they
will rid themselves of this incubus
calling itself a government
Legalized Land Robbery
The attention of the countiy is
again drawn to the crime of the
Bowser-MeBride government in allowing continued legalized robbery of the
lands of the province, says the Victoria
Times. The story prinied a few days
ago by the Manitoba Free Press is a
revelation of the vastness of the operations by whicli British Columbia is
being delivered over to the spoilers
The article to which reference is made
is very clear on the matter. It state"
that the two million lands which have
just been purchased will beneflt largely from the fact that the adjoining
lands to the northward will be thrown
open by the Dominion government for
homestead ing purposes. This means
that the lands of the Dominion government will be given away to actual
settlers, whereas the provincial lands
which have been sold will be resold at
enormous profits and to the great disadvantage of the province and of pros-
On various occasions members of
the provincial government have made
much of the fact that the Dominion
government has been given tracts of
British Columbia lands. What does
this meant It means that the Dominion will be at the expense of advertising and settling the lands, getting nothing in return. The province
will get the beneflt. The country can
be thankful, however, that at least u
few million acres will be properly 'settled.
The Free Press article draws attention to the fact that the land laws of
British Columbia are "loose." It
shows how the lands can he secured
in blocks, wholly contrary to the intent of the law, This is why we say
the procedure is simply legalized robbery. The government understands
the situation perfectly. Mr. McBride
with his complacent smile knows he is
deluding the people. How the residents of the province can sit idly by
and see their resources squandered in
Will Not Inspect Mines
Jay P Graves, general manager of
the Gntilby Consolidated, who has
heen spending the past "inter in
southern California, returned to Spo
knne last week. In an interview in
that city he said:
"The Hidden creek property has
developed tonnage much more rapidly
than we expected or hoped for, and,
what is still better, has revealed ore
in the deeper levels of considerably
higher flrade J,him was known to exist
at the time we bonded it. Everything
indicates that it is the best property
we are now developing, and that it is
going to make a most important producer.
"At our Phoenix mines we nre just
holding our own aa to tonnage.
Though we are now producing at the
rale of approximately 26,000 tons a
week, we are putting an equal tonnage into sight right along. The
same is true of the Knob Hill and
Gold Drop.
"The development in the Cliff mine
at Rossland has not yet reached a
point in the ore body in the old
workings, so that we have learned
nothing definite about it so far. We
have started work on the properties
in. the Chesaw district, which we also
have under bond.
"I had intended goinjj to Grand
Forks and Phoenix in a day or two,
hut have arranged instead that O. B
Smith, our mine managei, and George
Wooster, treasurer and one of the
directors of the company, shall meet
me here to discuss the situation. The
only thing now hut hering us is the coal
miners' strike in the Crow's Nest Pass
district. If this continues for any
length of time it will entirely cut oft
our fuel supply and compel us to clos'
down, which at the present low price
of copper will be no particular hardship on the coinpany. though it will
be a serious mutter for its employees
"Ln any event, we have to reduce
uur capacity al the smelter from eight
stacks to six as soon if new supplii s
of fuel cease to arrive, because it ia a
matter of physical impossibility to
keep eight furnaces running oil fuel
drawn from the stock supply."

Canada's Champion Dancer
Cured of Piles by Zam-Buk
Mr. Thomas .1. Hogttn, Champion
Clog and Pedestal Dancer of Canada,
who resides at 69 Chamhord St., Montreal writes: "It gives me much pleasure to let you know my opinion of
your wonderful Zam-Buk. For some
time past I have been troubled with
piles, but this year 1 suffered so much
that I was obliged to cancel a number of engagements. I tried all the
so-called remedies that were recommended, but they seemed to do me no
good. Having been advised to try
Zam-Buk I purchased a box, and after applying it a few times 1 felt'
marked relief. I continued with tbe
Zam-Buk treatment, and the relief
was extended into a permanent cure.
I gladly permit you to use my experience as an illustration of the great
value of Zam-Buk for piles."
Another illustration of how Zam-
Buk cures long-standing cases of
piles is provided by Mr. William
Kenty, of Upper Nine Mile River,
Hants Co., N.S. He says: "I sufj
fered terribly from piles, the pain at
times being almost unbearable. Zam-
Buk was recommended to me so I
procured a supply and commenced
with the treatment. After a very
short time Zam-Buk effected a complete cure."
Zam-Buk is also a cure for ulcers,
abscesses, eczema, cold sores, chapped hands, varicose ulcers, rashes,
blood-poison, ringworm, cuts, burns,
bruises, children's abrasions, tetter,
salt rheum, etc. All druggists and
stores sell at 50c. a box, or post free
from Zam-Buk Co., Toronto, for price,
Zam-Buk Soap, which may be had
Irom any druggist at 26c. a tablet,
should be used instead of ordinary
soap in all cases of eruptions and
skin diseases.

Liniments of No Avail—The Trouble
Mutt be Treated Through
The Blood
This article is intended as a talk to
the man or woman with rheumatism
who wants to be cured. Not merely
relieved, not half cured, but actually
cured. The most a rheumatic sufferer can hope for in rubbing something on the swollen aching joints is
a little relief. And all the while the
trouble is becoming more firmly seated. Medical authorities now know
that rheumatism is rooted in the
blood, and that while rubbing on liniments or hot fomentations may give
temporary relief, they cannot possibly
cure—you must go to the root of the
trouble in the blood. That is why
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cure rheumatism. They make new, rich blood
which expels the poisonous acid, and
the rheumatism disappears. There
are thousands of former rheumatic
sufferers in Canada, now well and
strong, who thank Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills that they are now free from the
aches and pains and tortures of this
dreaded trouble. Mr. Joseph Ludding-
ton, New Harbor, N.S., says: "Some
three years ago my wife was stricken
with rheumatism, and suffered so
much that we despaired of her ever
getting well again. At first she was
able to go' about, but in spite of all
we did for her she grew so bad that
we had to lift her in and out of bed
and finally the pain grew so excruciating that we could only move her
little by litt'e, with the sheet under
her. Finally we were induced to get
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for her. I
do not remember just how many
boxes she took but I do know that
they were the first medicine that
reached the disease, and that she con
tinued to improve until she was again
as well as ever, and could do her
household work. To us it is simply
marvellous what Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills did for her and we are glad to
give this testimonial in the hope that
it will benefit some other poor suf

When the Odds
Are Against You
You Can Depend on DR. CHASE'S SYRUP
to Help You, If Yoo Get
the Genuine
What a fight goes on during the
winter season against coughs and
colds. The children are careless about
keeping dry and warm, and the par-
ents are worried to hear them cough.
The best insurance against serious
results is the use of Dr. Chase's
Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine.
So well-known is this medicine and
so universally used that we need
scarcely tell you of its merits. But
we do want to warn you against imitations and substitutes.
Once you know that there are at
least four imitations of Dr. Chase's
Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine on
the market you are not likely to let
any dealer talk you into accepting
anything but the genuine, on each
bottle of which are the portrait and
signature of A. W. Chase, M.D., the
famous Receipt Book  author.
Imitations are sold on the reputation of this great medicine, and not
on their own merits, or why should
they not have a name of their own.
With the genuine Dr. Chase's Syrup
of Linseed and Turpentine you can
readily overcome croup, bronchitis,
whooping cough, throat irritation and
the most serious coughs and colds.

The Bird
Of Fortune
A County fair Ended a
Prolonged Wooing
Copyright, mo. by American Press
The county fair was In full swing.
Everywhere tbere was bustle and
laughter and merrymaking as well as
color and music and light. Today was
tbe duy of days. Prizes bad been
awarded, and such was tbe wisdom
and tact of tbe judges tbat no exhibitor
had gone unrewarded.
Benjamin Dibble bad tnken flrst
orize for his fine Holstclns and second
prize for tbe mountainous Chester bogs.
Tbese honors meant nothing to Benjamin, for tbey were conferred upon
his stock every year and bad been
•yen tn his father's generation.
The fact that Dorlnda Weed bad
captured all the flrst prizes in housewifely arts did not surprise Benjamin
In the least Everything Dorlnda attempted was a pronounced success, excepting perhaps the capture of Benjamin Dibble, and that tbis lind not happened was Benjamin's fault
Dorlnda Weed was sweet and fair
and dainty. Her eyes were blue like
tbe "ragged sailors" thnt bordered tbe
dusty roadsides. Benjamin hnd worshiped Dorlnda from his boyhood, bnt
be bad never dared address her beyond
the merest commonplaces. Tbere had
never been but one thought beblnd bis
worship of be;, and tbat was to ask
ber to marry him. Of the preliminary
months of wooing be gave no tbougbt.
He knew be wanted Dorlnda and he
Intended to ask ber outright to marry
bim some day wben bis backbone felt
a little more rigid and when bis ears
bad ceased to redden at her approach.
Bat no miracle bad been performed,
and Benjamin bad lived wretchedly on,
mentally cursing bis shyness.
Now, Dorlnda was thirty-two and
Benjamin was forty. Tbeir parents
were dead, tbeir lands adjoined, ond
their two bouses, eacb one small and
detached, might be moved to a new
•Ite on tbe apex of tbe dividing bill
between the farms and thus become a
large, comfortable farmhouse. This
plan was Benjamin's sweetest dream,
but tbere wu no sign of its being
Benjamin paused one Instant In front
of the domestic exhibit and furtively
adored Doritida's toothsome display.
From there be wandered out to tbe
building where bis cattle were quartered, and be arrived Just in time to
aee Dorlnda Weed timidly stroking tbe
nose of one of bis mild eyed Holstelns.
From nfnr he watched her blissfully.
and his heart rose exultantly when ahe
passed ou quite unobservant of tbe
otber exhibits.
Out ln tbe open spaces where vehicles of every description were huddled ln confusion, amid tbe cry of sideshow barkers, the conglomerate smell
of quick lunch carts, tbe odor nf fresh
popcorn and steamed clams, Benjamin
■tumbled over the gypsy caravan. Here
In a gayly festooned tent a gypsy crone
was telling fortunes.
"Kind gentleman!" she balled bim
eagerly. "For silver I will reveal the
future! I reunite broken hearts! I
make you successful ln love!" Sbe
held back the tent flap Invitingly, and
under tbe spell of some sudden Impulse Benjamin Dibble entered and
■at down on'a small three legged stool.
Tbe gypsy knelt hefore bim and beld
out one brown band, gay with sliver
"Silver!" sbe wheedled softly.
Blushlngly Mr. Dibble extracted a
■liver quarter from his pocket and
dropped it In ber palm, tben, embarrassed by her voluble thanks, he submitted bis own hand to her grasp.
Bhe bent ber durk. disheveled head
above Its toll hardened surf nee for several momenta and then scrutinized his
good looking face wltb piercing eyes.
"Von love," sbe said softly, "yet you
are troubled.   I see a fair woman—tbe
one you love.   A dark mnn comes between. Vou will And happiness through
a golden bird.   Walt!"   Still retaining
his hand, a Dim seemed to drop over
ber sharp eyes and ber head bent over
his hand.    Again sbe s|«ike. bnt her
words were mumbled, yet Benjamin's
eager ear caught every syllable:
"Ae surely as comes up the sun
Two houses shnll be made as one.
A golden bird without a nest
Shall lead the wesry heart to rest"
The gypsy lifted her beud and glanced sharply at him.
"What else?" demanded Benjamin
The woman arose to ber feet nnd
looked toward the door, where a little
crowd hnd gathered, waiting for an
ninlleiice. "it Is enough—the rest you
must do-so lt Is written," she said
Benjamin thrust another quarter Into
her willing hand and pushed dlzzllv
through tbe crowd, his heart beating
riotously. The doggerel verse was
emblazoned on his memory. He could
bave repeated It backward, forward
—indeed, ln almost any form. The
reference to tbe houses to be made as
one was as a direct prophecy from
heaven Itself. As for tbe mysterious
"golden bird without a nest," Benjamin confessed himself perplexed.
Little River boasted golden birds of,
many varieties, from the Buff Cochins
ot the poultry yard to tbe yellow, ham
mere and goldfinches of the woods
and the captive canaries ln cages. Bui
one and all had nests of some sort, and
the bird of Benjamin's fortune would
appear to be as vagrant as tbe gypsy
The prophecy of tbe united bouses
was good fortune enougb for one day,
and, emboldened by tbis certainty that
his dearest hopes would be ful ailed.
Benjamin rushed hastily toward the
building where Dorlnda Weed might
be found. She who was to be his
future wife had stroked tbe nose of
h.s prize Holstelns. After these wonderful happenings lt would be an easy
matter to Invite Dorlnda to partake of
ice cream and cake. Wben one was
eating Ice cream It was not necessary
io taiK much, and after tbe Ice cream
be might Invite ber to other amusements in the grounds. There were a
loop-the-loop and a merry-go-round
Benjamin Dibble stood stock still,
while all exuberance of spirit dissolved
like mist
In the distance he saw Dorlnda,
charming ln ber pale blue gown, but
remote as ever from bis approach, for
she was talking earnestly to a tall,
dark man, a dangerously handsome
j stranger, and together tbey were bend,
Ing over some object on a table between tbem.
Then It was that Benjamin Dibble
remembered the gypsy's prophecy—
that a dark man would come between
Dorlnda and him. And here was the
dark man. The prophecy was fulfilling without delay.
Benjamin turned away and tried to
satisfy the pongs ot disappointed love
wltb hot frankfurters, steamed clams
and coffee. Be drank ginger ale and
pink lemonade to wash d-iwn huge
segments of pie and sugary doughnuts.
He spent money lavishly, buying
everything tbst was offered. He purchased chances on all sorts of unknown articles and afterward found
himself the embarrassed possessor ot
a pair of curling Irons, a lady's work
basket and a wax doll.
He bundled these treasures away In
the back of his buggy with a certain
elusive hope that they might prove
useful some day. He stopped In the
shed and stroked the noses of his cattle, as Dorlnda bad done, and derived
a certain foolish satisfaction In the
action. It wns at tbat. moment Benjamin received Inspiration.
Bnck In the main building, Benjamin
once more threaded tbe crowd ln
search of Dorlnda.
Although she was still talking to the
dark man, Benjamin pressed forward
until he stood almost nt Iter elbow
She snw him nnd smiled tremulously,
her delicate face flushing a soft rose
"Will you give me your advice. Benjamin?" she nsked gently. "Tbis gentleman Is selling weather vanes. 1
want one for the barn. Our old one
was blown off, you know. Shall 1
choose a fish or an arrow?"
Tbe delicious sense of Intimacy conveyed by this question ennnot he described. Benjamin Dibble threw off
his old mantle of timidity forever and
stepped boldly forward beside Dorln
da. •
"Seems to me nothing looks so much
like a weather vane as a crowing cock.
Dorlnda. Have you got anything
else?" nsked Benjamin of the durk
From the box of samples tbe man
brought forth several weathercocks
of different sizes. Each one wns
painted a dazzling gold, wltb crimson
comb and wattles. He held forth the
largest one. whirling It about the
pivot ns he did so.
"This Is the hnndsomest one I've got
sir. I'd like to inke your order for
that—$10 ou delivery In ten days.
You'd like to wnke up In tbe rooming
and see that weathercock on the cupola of your barn-eli?" He smiled Ingratiatingly.
Benjiimln Dibble was staring Intently at the glided cock, a queer expression dn wulng In his eves.   A certain
line was running through his bead:
A golden bird without a nest
Shall lead'the weary heart to rest
"Dorlnda." said Benjamin In a ringing voice, "do you like that weathercock?"
"Yes, Indeed," agreed Dorlnda graciously.
"We'll tnke one of those." ordered
Benjamin Dibble authoritatively. "You
can make out the bill to Mr. nnd Mrs.
Benjamin Dibble- liorluda. that's all
right; you know, we're going lo move
the two houses up on the hill and
make one, and we're going to build a
new barn with a cupola and put this
golden bird on It."
"Wby—why, Benjamin—I've thought
sometimes that wns a lovely plan—only
bow do you know It will happen?"
Dortnda's eyes were very bright wltb
sudden happiness.
"I had my fortune told, aud tbe
gypsy said all tbose things. When I
take you borne ln my buggy tonight
I'll tell you about tbe golden bird and
bow all this has come true, just as tbe
woman said," explained Benjamin,
talking faster and more eloquently
than be bad ever done ln his life.
"It's all perfectly wonderful," murmured Dorlnda on that homeward ride
after Benjamin had related tbe gypsy's
prophecy. "I knew yon liked me. Ben.
but It seemed somehow as if you'd
never get up courage to ask me. It's
been a long time—nnd then to come all
at once like a surprise."
"I've been nn awful fool, I guess,"
murmured Benjamin, his arm protect-
lngly ahout ber slim wnist. his eyes on
the round globe of ihe full moon. "My
life's heen like traveling over level
ground year after yenr till I never expected anything else, nnd then waking
and foiling right over Into"- He
pnused nnd groped for the right simile
"Into what Benjamin?" Whispered
He looked down Into her soft bine

Jack Cade's Monument.
At Heathfield, in England, la a
farm on which stilJ stands the remains of an old s'tune house thnt is
said once to have been the home of
the notorious Jack Cade. Whether or
not Cade ever lived there can never
be accurately determined, but there
is no disputing the fact that he was
killed in that neighborhood. On the
main road, not iar from the ruins of
the house, stands a monument with
this inscription: "Near this spot was
slain the notorious rebel Jack Cade
by Alexander Iden, Esq., sheriff ol
F.ent, A.D. 1450. His body was carried to London, and his head fixed
upon London bridge. This is the
success of all rebels, and this fortune
ohanceth ever to traitora."
Mounting Photographs.
If you have a number ot photographs
ft your European trip or copies of famous pictures or prints of your favorite poets or musicians or any other
of those small, unmounted photographs
and prints that one collects and then
hopelessly carries about In a bag or
box to the end of time, try arranging
tbem ln a frieze around the wall ot
your living room or study. Get glass
exactly tbe size of each and fasten
them tightly by means of glass headed push pins trmly Inserted at each
comer. There will be no frame to
bide any of tbe picture, and tbe effect
Is quaint and artistic.
If you have a low picture moldlng.se
much the better. Arrange tbem ta
pleasing order In tbe same way on
this. Nothing could be prettier tban a
wall done In brown burlap with a walnut molding and light paper or paint
above and a frieze of these photographs ln sepia or carbon. They give
a tone to a room that needs only a
little leather covered furniture, a mg
or two, a marble cast and a,bit of pottery to complete. And the glass mounted photographs are the keynote of alL

Frank Bullan Says Sharks Are Really
Good Fellows.
Fven the shark, dreaded as he is.
has some good points about him, especially when you take into account
his own viewpoint. Put yoi""*s'" in
his place and a shark—or even Satan
himself—is found to be not such a
bad fellow nfter all. Mr. Frank T.
Bullen recently gave an address before a gathering of children held under the auspices of the Royal Geographical Society in London, and he
related many interesting facts about
sharks and other strange creatures ol
tile deep.
"I can assure you," he observed in
a manner which breathed sincerity,
"that the shark is really a most estimable creature. He eats man, no doubt,
but not because he likes man as a
diet—simply because man happens to
be there. I have seen him swallow
a bag of cinders just thrown overboard, and no one would suggest that
a shark was fond of cinders. He eats
because he cannot help eating everything that comes in his way. His devouring hunger makes him the scavenger of the sea."
The lecturer told a story of an incident he had witnessed. A shark was
hooked, and having been dragged on
board was mutilated in the cruel way
whioh sailors reserve for what they
regard as the enemy of mankind.
Then the brute was thrown overboard
still alive. The bait was thrown after
him, and the expiring shark immediately turned on his back and swallowed it, though, as Mr. Bullen added
pathetically, he had nowhere to put it.
And would the shark attract the
life-long affection and esteem of ar.-
qther fish unless it hnd estimable
qualities? The little pilot fish wai
always in constant attendance—it was
supposed for the purpose of guiding
the shark to food, and never left it.
Even when a shark was killed the
pilot fish would disconsolately follow
the ship as long as it could. Anothei
amiable characteristic of the shark j
was the love of its young, which il
tended with devoted care and tenipor
arily swallowed in moments of danger.
It is just as well, as Mr. Bullen
pointed out, that there is always" a
constant warfare and hunting going
on among the denizens of the ocean.
There were no vegetarians. \!1 existed to eat and be eaten—notv.ing was
lost, and old age pensions were not
required. The fecundity of the ocean
was so vnst thnt it had bee't estimate-.!
—he could not say with what exactitude—that if all the codfish that were
born survived for two years it would
not be possible tor the Mauretania to
cross the Atlantic, which would just
be n sMid mass of codfish.
When he thought of the fish that
swarded on the Great Bank of Newfoundland his head turned dizzy with
the possibilities of the amount of Iood
they suggested.
Describing the jelly fish as beins
the lowest form of life, Mr. Bullen
said it multiplied by dividing its»lf,
and lived on fish far higher in the
scale of life than itself. Yet, exposed
to the sun, it would melt awny in a
few minutes.
People might write about the antediluvian monsters, but they were "not
in it" compared with the sperm
whale, whicli weighed as much as
250 tons. Then there wns nnother
whale which could easily swallow
hnlf-a-dnzen recalcitrant Jonahs nt
once. From the head of one of these
monsters in the Behring Sen enough
whalebone (a ton and three-quartersl
hnd been taken to pay the whole cosl
of the voyage. Yet this monster wns
helpless, and only had to be chased
long enough for it to die lik» an old
man who had run to catch a train
nfter a heavy menl.
Some whales, although huge in «ize
hnd very small "swallows." nnd lived
by sucking tiny creatures into ih-it
mouths—four million of these wenl
to make not a mouthful, but one satisfying swallow.
Novels With a Purpose.
There is no doubt that the best
novel of this kind, and the most effective for its purpose ol putting an end
to slavery, was "Uncle Tom's Cabin."
"Don Quixote" ridiculed tlie follies
an . abuses of chivalry out of ex.st-
encc. In "It's Never Too l.ule lo
Mend" the intolerable cruelties of our
prison system were attacked, and
"Hard Cash" exposed the equally
llugrunt wrongs practiced in luunt.o
asylums. "Oliver Twist" drew iit'.en-

lb the Improvement of dairy breeds
hy selection, environment feed, etc.,
tor the greater utility to the dairy
farmer, two characteristics should be
placed foremost, writes W. 11. Jenkins In Hoard's Duirymuu. These are
performance nud constitution or vitality, nud after these beauty and
symmetry of form. The history of
thia new American breed—the Columbian—breeders of dairy cattle will do
well lo study closely and lenrn Its lessons. About thirty yeurs ngo Anson
Gregory was keeping a herd of native
cattle on his f ii nn in Otsego county,
N. Y. He iioik'cil thut one cow In his
herd gave more nud richer milk than
the others, und he raised her heifer
calves year after year. Mr. Gregory
wanted a sire from u different herd,
and he bought a Hue buck. Its dam being his neighbor's hest cow. Mr. Gregory's best cow wns bred to the line
bnck bull for several yenrs and a
strain of line back cuttle was established.
Mr. Gregory's two hohs were now
grown to manhood, and they took up
A new distinctive br.;ed of American dairy cattle has been named
the Columbian. The bull shown
herewith, Miles Standlsh, Is owned
by F, L. Gregory. Otsego county,
N. Y„ whose father originated the
tbe work of Improving tbeir new
breed of cattle' by selection. They
coutiuued the work of Improvement by
selection, feeding, eic, uutll tbey owned nulmnls with a record of considerably over 500 pouuds ot butter lu
one year.
Their type of cows belug now established, three years ago the nume Columbian was given tbese cattle under
a charter from the state, and the Columbian Cattle Breeders' association
was organized wilh Ave members.
The beat aud largest berd of Columbians Ik now owned by C. O. Gregory
and bis father on the farm where tho-
breed originated. They have thirty-
three cows. Some of the Columbian-
cnttle were exhibited nt local fairs iu
New York this yenr. lull very few of
this new butler breed have beeu offered for sale.
The Columbians so far hnre made
good records us a butter breed of cattle, and tliere seems to be good reasons for believing they will take a
permanent place tinning tbe standard
dairy breeds.
Important Points to Consider In Selecting the Ram.
In selecting a rnin two classes ot
breeding should be uvoided—the common scrub, that has uo good characteristics to 11.x. nud the "pure breed
scrub" without Individuality, whose
purity of breeding only gives him
greater power to work ruin In the
flock. Good Individuality, backed by
several generations of good ancestry,
will Insure prepotency with almost unfailing certainly where the ewes nre
suliuble ami management correct
Great ntlentlon should lie puld to the
ram's general contour. Ills structure
should be linn nnd massive, with a
broad, spacious breast, no disproportionate length of legs uml well formed
nnd fully develo|s>d quarters, especially the hindquarters, Ills loin should

The Breatheablo Remedy for Catarrh.
The rational way to combat catarrh
is the Hyomei way, viz., by breathing.
Scientists for years have been agreed
on this point, but failed to get an antiseptic strong enough to kill catarrh
germs and not destroy the tissues of
the membrane at the same time, until the discovery of Hyomei (pronounced High-n inc.) .
Hyomei is the most powerful yet
healing antiseptic known. Breathe it
through the inhaler over the inflamed
and germ-ridden membrane four or
the times a day, and in a few days the
germs will disappear.
A complete Hyomei outfit, including the inhaler, costs $1.00, and extra
bottles, if afterwards needed, cost but
50 cent. Obtainable from your.druggist or postpaid from the R. T. Booth
Co., Ltd., Fort Erie, Ont. Hyomei
is guaranteed to cure asthma, croup,
