He picked up tbe letter, tore it open
and begun rending:
Los Angeles. Cal., June 20, 'OL
Dear Nephew—When you read thia 1

have brought me considerable wealth, and
my lawyer will Inform you that I have
mnde you my heir, but on one condition-
that you marry May Urayson, daughter
ot the man who gave his lite to save
- mine when the Indiana attacked the camp
twelve years ago.
May I. heart free aa yet, and i have
reason to believe you are the tame.
My lawyer. F. B. Goodfrlend, will arrange for you to meet her. Inclosed la a
check for $100. Come to California Immediately.   Vour uncle,
"Bang It!" he ejaculated as he sur
veyed tbe situation. "I'd like to know
bow It would seem to be u rich man.
Of course anybody would. But why
didn't he marry some nice woman himself and bave a family of his own* to
leave bit money to? That would have
left me out entirely. But—oh, plague
take tbat condition!"
Thinking there might be, after all,
some modifying clause ln the will
whereby this unnoylng feature could
be avoided, he arrayed himself In a
new suit, bought his ticket aud left
Chicago by an early train.
Arrived In Los Angeles, he Immediately sought the oflice of F. B. Ooodfriend and Introduced himself as Alfred D. Bennett of Chicago, nephew
of the late Daniel T. Rockwell.
"U\a<S to meet you, Mr. Bennett! Take
a seat, and we will talk matters ovei."
"Tbere It one feature of my uncle's
will that gives me • good deal of annoyance," remarked the young man,
■eating himself near the lawyer.
"Which one Is that?"
"Tbe one obliging mo to marry a
girl 1 have never seen. It Is perfectly

tbe whole will!"
"The worst part yon mean." said
Alf desperately. "But Isn't there any
modifying clause? There surely must
"No, there Is none until yon have
tried and failed to woo and win the
lady of jour uncle's choice."
"1 don't suppose tbe young lady likes
the situation any better than 1 do."    '
"I don't kuow that she does, but Miss
Grayson hnd a daughter's love for your
late uncle nnd humored all his vagaries," relurned Uie lawyer, trying to
bide hit amusement at the young
man's Irritation.
"Look here. Bennett Come and alt
down and we'll talk bualness. 1 admit
If you please, the singularity of tbe
condition, though It teems more unaccountable to you iban to me. But you
would like the money yonr nncle bas
left?   Now. fraukly. wouldn't you?"
"Of course I would."
"That's honest, and I respect yon for
the admission Now, listen. You have
never met the girl. Who knows but an
acquaintance muy prove satisfactory to
both? Ai nny rule, you two must meet
Tbe will specifies that. Miss Grayson
Is spending the summer witb her mint,
who owns a large olive orchard about
tlity miles from Ihe city. 1 am an old
friend of the family. Leave It all to
me and I'll arrange u meeting. Toucan
then tell whether Ihe condition lt entirely obnoxious ur not What do you
■ay, young man?"
"I'll do nt you advise." replied Alf,
who. having cooled off. was making an
effort to view tbe affair In a business
light. "It wou't do any harm to see
the girl."
Three weeks later Bennett took tbe
mninlng express out of the city, bound
for Ihe little station sixty miles distant Arriving there, he wus disappointed tn find no conveyance nwaiting
hint and was Jnst starting for the little
hotel, the only one that the place could
boast, when u buggy came rapidly up
to the station platform aud slopped.
The agent hurried out to meet the
driver, who was a slender young girl,
beautiful us a wild rose, with full dark
eyes uud n wealth of Imlr that seemed
to reflect the warm sunshine.
"Did Mr. Bennett come on the train,
do you Uiinw?" she inquired In a sweet
clear voice "Mrs. Grayson tent me to
meet her guest."
"I am Mr. Bennett." said tbe trav*
eler, stepping forward and lifting his
bat to the fulr driver.
"I have come to dMve you to Mm.
Grayson's," returned the girl.
"Thank you." And he sprang ln
lightly and tented himself by her tide.
"Do you wltb me to take tbe reins?"
he asked.
"Ob. no, thank yon! Rllly objects to
strangers," she replied.
"Too bad I hnve put you lo the trouble of coming to far. though," said the
young mnn. stealing a sidewtse glance
at the lovely face so close to hit own.
"I dou't mind the drive at all. Be-
sldjis, 1 was almost obliged to come,"
ahe admitted wltb cburmtng frank
neap. "1 hope you are going io enjoy
your visit, Mr, Bennett I know mam-
ma and May will do all tbey can to
make your stay pleasant"
"Hp you are Miss Grayson also? 1

"Yet, two May Graysons. But I nm

Two May Graysons! It was strange
tbat Lawyer Goodfrlend bad not mentioned tbat fact to him before he came.
"Mazle! Sbe ts a perfect little bundle
of sweet mystery," thought Alf. "If tbe
May Grnvsnn referred to ln tbe will la
but half as blight and winsome as tnis
girl by my side I won't find It such a
hard mutter to live up to that condition after all. And yet 1 don't know
that I really want to live up to It now
tbat I bave seen Mazle."
Mr. Alfred Bennett found a very
cordial welcome awaiting bim at the
pleasant borne of Mrs. Grayson. Ma;
Grayson—the May-was a nice looking
stately girl of twenty-one, with a beau-
tlful crown of nut brown hair and clear,
expressive gray eyes. She was bright
and Intelligent, nnd be was forced to
admit after an hour spent tn her company that tbere was nothing of the
mining cnmp style In ber manners.
He liked her very well. too. and might
have fallen In love wltb ber If he had
not met Mazle first Bright merry
Mazle! She charmed him more and
more at days and weeks went by.
And yet abe studied to avoid him In
every possible way. and the succeeded
almost always In forcing bim Into Ihe
company of her cousin, thus escaping
any marked attention he might with
to pay to herself.
But this scheming on her part did
not lead young Bennett to bestow nny
warmer affection on Mlat May. Ere
long he made the discovery that his
life would be an Intolerable failure If
be was obliged to live lt without Mazle. Tbe at niggle between this love
and the desire to gain possession of
his deceased uncle's wealth wat over,

"You are always thrusting 'Cousin

■light Irritation. "But it la you 1 wish
to speak witb this 'Ideal morning.' I

"I'm afraid not."
"Won't you try to love me, dearest?"
"I don't need to try, Alf." she replied, looking up Into bla face wltb a
shy smile.
"You sweet deceiver!" he cried,
catching her ln hts arms and pressing
her to bis heart "You were fooling

"Yes, for, much ai I waa growing to

One month Inter the "annoying condition" In the will wat compiled with.
Queen Mary a Spartan When It Comes
to Keeping Children's Tastes Simple.
When it comes to imbuing her children with simple tastes, Queen Marv,
of England, surely has all other royal
mothers "stopped." A certain young
woman, who is a great iavorite with
the royal children, Whom she knows
through their French governess, re
ceived an evidence of the length to
which the Queen goes in this respect.
The young woman in question, when
the little Prince John, a special pet
of hers, was ill a short time ago.
begged to be allowed to send him a
Teddy beir, to replace a worn-out one
he had been in the habit of taking
to bed with him, after the fashion of
many children, royal and otherwise
The Queen consented that the prince
should accept the gift and the. friend
straightway purchased the largest, fattest and most elaborate Teddy bear
possible, which she despatched to the
palace. Her surprise was great when
the bear came buck again to her with
a little note from the Queen saying
that she always liked the children to
have only the most unpretentious
toys, and that as Prince John's last
Teddy bear was but a quarter of the
size of the present one she consider*!
it would be better to have the same
kind. The astonished young woman
hurriedly exchanged the large, re
bust and costly Teddy ior a most modest specimen ol the breed.
The same treatment is accorded
Princess Mary. Her dolls have alway*
been of a simple kind, and she is required to make their clothes herself,
in the intervals ot stitching flannel
petticoats for the poor, with which
task she occupies much of li/f time.
The Birth of Reform Schools.
The first reform school for juvenile
delinquents was probable the one. or
ganized at Metray, near Louvre,
France, about the year 1839 by M.
de Tetz, a noted councillor of Paris
M. de Tetz found in some wealthy
noblemen the financial assistance he
needed to materialize his idea, mil
the school was started with the moot
teneliceut results. The idea was tak-.ii
hold of in other quarters not only ol
France, but of other continental countries and the enthusiasm created by
the work resulted in the grand "conference of the reformatory union,"
the real beginning of our present day
work in behalf of juvenile delinquents.
Tht Hours ef ths Day.
The ancient Egyptians divided the
day and night into twelve hours each,
a custom adopted by the Jews and
Greeks probably from the Babylonians. The day was first divided into
hours in Rome by L. Papirius Cursor,
who about B.C. 293 erected a sun dial
in the temple ol Quirinus. Prior to
the invention ol water clocks (IM
B.C.) the time was called nt Rome by
public criers. In England in early
times the measurement of time was
uncertain. One expedient was by wax
candles, three inches burning an hour
and six wax candles burning twenty-
tour hours, or a day.
His Last Breath.
The reflections upon the value of
breath, writes a correspondent, recall
an old riddle whicli asked what it was
that no mnn wished to take and nu
man wished to give up. The answer
was, His last breath. Charles Lamb
had an epicurean desire concerning
his own last breath, hall of which
at any rate comes home to many of us.
Macreudy heard him express the hope
that he might draw it in through a
fiipe and exhale it in a pun. Certa'n-
y tlmt would be the most precious
breath on record.—London Chronicle
A Rain Trap.
In a lime of distressing drought,

a harassed amateur agriculturist stepped into a shop to buy a barometer.
The shopman was giving u tew stereotyped instructions ubout indications

"Yes, yes." said he, "that's all

Aids Nature
The great tneeesa of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery in coring weak stomachs, wasted bodies, weak
lungs, and obstinate and lingering coughs, is based on
the recognition of the fundamental truth that "Golden
Medical Discovery" supplies Nature with body-building, tissue-repairing, muscle-making materials, in condensed and concentrated form. With this help Nature
supplies thc neceatiry strength to the stomach to digest
food, build up the body tnd thereby throw off lingering
obstinate coughs. The "Discovery" re-establishes the
digestive and nutritive organs in sound health, purifies
tnd enriches the blood, and nourishes the nerves—in
short establishes sound vigorous health.

Address Delivered by M. S.
Middleton in This Oity
Last Friday
Mr. Middleton dwelt on the importance of selecting proper orchard
stock and planning the laying out
an orchard as absolute essentials to
secure a good foundation for future
growth. He advocated one-year-
old trees as the best to plant, as old
trees would throw fruit buds when
planted instead of making wood
growth. The very best stock should
be selected, being the cheapest in
the end. He advised growers to
plant locally grown stock, or if not
obtainable, trees grown under similar climatic conditions. To be good,
the stock should be well grown ond
He favored ordering in the fall for
spring delivery, as nurserymen have
much better facilities for wintering
stock than have prospective growers. He would not advise planting
dwarfs for commercial purpoees;
they were all right where space was
limited and only a few trees were
required for domestic use. He favored, however, dwarfing to a certain extent the ordinary standard
trees, so aB to throw them into
bearing earlier and keep them within a size convenient for spraying
and picking the fruit.
Tbere were four ways of laying off
an orchard—the square, with the
trees the same distance apart each
way; the square, with fillers one
way in the rows; the square, with
fillers in tlie centre of the squares,
commonly known ns the quincunx
system, giving about 100 trees to
the acre, and the hexagonal or tri
angular system, in which the trees
were planted in equilateral triangles
Of these] systems he preferred the
quincunx or the square, with fillers
cine way. He believed in fillers
himself, as they served to tide the
grower over the financial difficulties
of the long period of waiting for the
trees^to come into full bearing. Some
(people opposed them on the ground
that most growers lacked the courage to remove them when necessary,
b il lie thought growers usually had|
more sense ami would remove fillers
a' soon as their presence become injurious to the other trees. He con-i
sldered 30x80 feet, with fillers one
way in the rows, making .'10x15 feet,
the best distance apart to plant
Referring io pollinization, be said
it was important in setting out an
orchard to have at least two varieties iu order to be on the safe side;
and to secure cross-fertilization, not
more than four or five rows of any
one variety should be planted to
gether, that is, an orchard should
he set out in belt's of not more than
four or five rows of ond variety.
Bees were very important in this
For laying out an orchard be ad
voeated a simple system of pegs and
a piece of wile, the use of which he
illustrated with a diagram.
As   to   the   question  of   fall vs. \
spring planting, he favored the  lat-
ter, as it was difficult to get ripened
' stock in the fall.   If the planter had
mme   lime   in thc fall   than in thc
spring, it might bu worth while risking it to plant in the fall; but the
springtime was undoubtedly the
best, as the trees that were planted
in thc fall had to undergo the winter without having made a proper
start, and as evaporation went on in
winter the same as at other seasons,
their roots were apt to dry out before they had a chance to start in the
spring. Time could he gained, in
the case of heavy soil, by digging
the holes in the fall, so as to permit
tbe frost to pulverise the ground and
mellow it for planting in the spring.
Some people dug a hole from four to
five feel in diameter when planting.
but that was quite unnecessory, as a
much smaller hole would  give just
good results. The idea was, no
doubt, to loosen the soil so that the
roots could penetrate, but in heavy
soil this could he accomplished
much better hy thorough sub-soiling than by digging a wide hole, the
boundaries of which the roots would
soon reach and then stop. Blasting
had proved very successful in loosening up gumho soil, and could he
done at an expense of two or three
cents a tree.
He believed that 25  per cent   of
the trees planted in lhe province die
from some cause, the majority due
to errors in planting. He warned
growers against shallow planting,
which would produce an annual
crop of suckers or water sprouts,
that would continue to be a nuisance during the life of tbe tree. He
illustrated with a sketch the proper
depth of planting, which, in light
sandy soil, should be from four to
five inches deeper than the level at
which the soil surrounding the
trunk of the tree as it stood iii the
nursery, and about three inches
deeper in clay soil. The reason for
this is, that after planting the loose
soil gradually sinks, and if the tree
is put in at the same level as it
stood in the nursery the roots will
become exposed, resulting in the
growth of suckers. A point that
should be carefully attendeil to was,
tbat every root should be freshly cut
on the under side hefore planting, so
to stimulate growth of fibrous
roots. In forming the tree, it should
be headed at the height of ahout
two feet, and the first branch should
be permitted to grow about twelve
inches from the ground on the
southwest side, for the prevention
of suu scald. Four side hranches
antl a leader were usually enough to
form the head the first year. He
did not advocate putting water in
the hole when planting the tree. I
The gr mini should he moist. If dry, I
putting .water in tlie hole would do1
little guild, as it would soon he absorbed by the thirsty soil. He would
not plant stone fruits intermixed
with apples, as the seasons of growih
were different and they required
different treatment, nnd therefore
they should be kept to themselves.
He would plant fruit trees ahout
thirty feet apart.

A special meeting of the hoard of
trade was held on Tuesday evening
for the purpose of taking action on a telegram from the
Vernon board of trade in reference
to striding a joint delegation to Ottawa to make representations against
placing fruit and farm produce on
tbe free list, and to transact other
business. President Hood occupied
the chair. Tbere was a good attendance of business men, and three
or four fruit growers were also present.
VV, K. C. Manly, chairman of the
committee appointed at the last
meeting lo forward resolutions lo lhe
Dominion and provincial governments urging that construction on
the postoffice and courthouse build-
ings be started at once, reported
that resolutions to this effect had
been send to the Hon. Mr. l'ugsley
and Martin Burrell, M.P., at Ottawa, and to the Victoria government,
As far as he was aware, nothing had
yet been done ut the coast that
would indicate that the government
had any intention of starting work
on thc courthouse in the immediate
President Hood suggested that the
committee make further efforts lo
induce the authorities to commence
building operations as soon as possible, and on motion of Mr. Manly
the same committee was instructed
to renew its reprelalions lo tlie two
Geo. Clark staled that information had been received iu this city
that the resolution bad been presented to the Ottawa government by
Mr. Burrell. The Grand Forks lender for the postoffice, he said, was
still being considered by the department, and if the figures in il could
be reconciled with the figures originally prepared by the chief architect,
the contract would ha let at once
and construction would commence
at as early a date as possible.
Mr. Hood reported Having been
in communication with Mr. Miller,
superintendent of Kootenay disvi-
sion of the C.P.R., at Nelson, in
reference to the road making this
city a divisional point. The own-
mitlee hud decided to let the mallei
rest until Mr. Miller visited thc city.
The request Irom the Vernon
board of trade was then taken up
and thoroughly discussed. President Hood said he had discussed the
contents of tbe telegram wilh a
nuniher of fruit growers, and had
decided to call a special meeting of
thc hoard.
Those who were opposed to fruit
and farm produce being placed on
lbe free lisl and those who favored
thu treaty as negotiated by thc two
governments, appeared to be equally
divided, judging from those who
expressed their views. While it is
true that the request from Vernon
was endorsed, it is equally 'that all'
but about half a dozen of those pres-
cut refrained from voting. Had a
secret ballot been taken, and everyone compelled to vote, the result
would probably have been reversed.
Mr. Kerman said, that, taking
pph's alone, he was not prepared
to say whether the treaty would
benefit us or not. He said the
American growers shipped No. 2
apples to the Northwest and marked
them No. 1. More 'Dominion frrutt
inspectors should be appointed. This
district should stand hy the other
fruit growing sections of the province.
J. D Honsberger, the most extensive fruit grower in the valley,
felt no fear in regard to apples. lie
thought the British Columbia apple
could compete in any market. But
he was afraid the treaty would be
detrimental to prunes and vegetables;
John Donaldson said the Btroug
est competition the British Columbia growers met with in the Northwest came from Ontario. An inferior quality of fruit was send out
west from that province.
Jeff Davis, VV. K. C. Manly and
N. L, Mclnnes expressed opinions
in favor of the treaty, while N, D.
Mcintosh thought that British Columbia fruit required protection.

Editor Evening Sun,
Victohia, Feliriifiiy 13—The department of agriculture, being able
to giant the application of the Grand
Forks Fruit Growers' association for
a fruit packing school, ha< arranged
that one will be held at Grand
F'orks Maich 16 to 21, both inclusive. There will be morning sessions commencing at !):3U and afternoon sessions at L':l)0, making a total
of twelve lessons of two and one-
half hours each. The attendance is
limited to sixteen pupils and the fee
is 83.00.
It is expected that fruit growers
and fruit packers will take advantage of this fruit packing
school to become more fully ac-
juainted wilh the theory and practice of modern fruit packihg. The
department is fortunate iu securing
the services of James Berkley, ol the
Okanagan Fruit union, who has
given excellent satisfaction not only
as a practical fruit packer but as an
instructor in the fruit packing
schools at Yakima valley and iu tbe
Okanagan. To any one taking up
the remunerative work of fruit packing no better opportunity to become
acquainted with the art can he had.
Those desiring to join should present their names to James liooke as
Boon as possible.

"I'm sorry, Eliabetb," said Ralph
Coverly. "that 1 must go to Chicago

"VVhat Is thut. dear? Really, uai.
ot the anticipated pleasure wus tbe
knowledge thut we were to be together."
Ralph hesitated, and tben, as If dismissing some unWiii.Uy duubt from
his mind, he suid quickly:
"Why, I've spoken to Fabens, He's
a mighty clever chap uud Is better
versed lu all lhe things you're Interested In than I am, I'm such u practical fellow. Elizabeth. Well. I told
Fabens all the Ibiugs I'd planned we
were to do the eumiiig week uud asked him to see that you didn't miss
any of the pleasures."
"It's very thoughtful of yon. Ralph."
The next morning when Elizabeth
wandered downstairs tu a late breakfast she found the expected Aunt
Agatha established at Ihe head of the
table. She wns n stern vlsaged Indy
whose hair remained it shining liltn I;
ln defiance of threescore yeurs. She
wore gold spectacles with thick lenses,
which magnified her dark eyes with
startling results. An eur trumpet dangled from a ribbon over her shoulder,
much like a powderburo at the buck
of a hunter.
"Good morning. Miss- Nenl-or shnll

If you'll excuse my saying su, you're
sot at all tbe sort of girl I thought
Ralph would marry! He always pre
ferred brunettes, like myself. Well
men are fickle as the weather! It's too
bad Mary Is confined to her room
Tou will be very lonely." Miss Dale
paused to tnke breath.
"Mrs. Coverly will enjoy bavlng
some one with her. She Is so murb
alone except for the nurse." said Elizabeth.
"I can't hear a word you say." asserted Ml«s Dale calmly. "It doesn't
mntter. I can always guess what people nre talking ubout at table. You
probably remarked that you wouldn't
be lonely nt all daring Ralph's absence. I know Dlek Fabens, my dear,

you In Dick's enre. But, there, every |
one has bis consolations, and thnt little dark beauty Ralph wns so crazy
about Inst year lives In Chicago.
There, there!   Don't get emotional!"
Elizabeth, angry and amused, watch
ed her nnd when she wns nlnne finished her breakfast nnd retired to her j
own room.    I.nt-r her brief morning
visit to sweet  Mrs. Coverly  brought
forth the fact that Aunt Agatha hnd |

servants with praiseworthy results.
Mrs. Coverly smiled Indulgently nnd |
tonehed Elizabeth's serious face wilh

Elizabeth's nnswer was to kiss the
hand thnt caressed her, and tbe next
half hour was one of delightful Intimacy wlili the mutber of her prospective huslinnd.
Aunt Agntlin at luncheon was a repetition of Aunt Agatha at breakfast,
and her deeply voiced monologue left
the girl with a strange sense of desolation. For the first lime since her
engagement to Ralph there crept Into
her heart a vngue disquiet ns to his
perfect loyalty. Who was this dnrk

Two o'clock brought Dick Fabens
with tickets for a matinee, and. ns
Aunt Agatha was too rheumatic to
so tar afield. Elizabeth went alone with
umpire partner. During tneir mm
ride In the carriage Elizabeth learned
that Mr. Fabens was feeling much
better and thnt the simple program
Ralph had laid out appealed to hli
convalescent body and mind as nothing else could.
Dick Fabena was fascinating. Older
than Ralph, he was attraetlve by rea-
i ion nf his contrasting gray hair and
' youthful face.   He wn itrnngely «ym-
i pathetic, tn Elisabeth, and ihe found
! herself leaking te him for confirmation

He did not flirt with her: ue did nnt
make love to her. He wus simply natural and unaffected, uud by very reason of  ber enforced  solitude nt tbe
Coverly home Elizabeth turned to him
for congeniality and pleasure during
those seven days.
Auut Agaihu suddenly disapproved
of Dick Fabens' attention and expressed her opinion each mornlug.
Elizabeth came to take a wicked delight in listening to those lectures, aod
frequent meutlou of tbe dark beauty in
Chicago and Ralph's weakness in that
direction hardened ber heart against
tbe absent lover. His daily letters
were characteristically short, and her
jealous eyes read between tbe lines
thut be was enjoying his stay In tbe
Windy City, Then on Thursday the
letters censed coming, aud Elizabeth
stopped 'writing.
On Saturday morning she took counsel in ber own room and decided that
Ralph Coverly was tired of her. if he
bad uot been. If be bad really eared
fur her, would he not have hesitated
at leaving a substitute for bis own
escort? Wus it uut lo Justify bis own
attentions to this other girl—whose
name Aunt Agaiba had once admitted

substitute? Fubens spoke little of bis
partner beyond saying that tbe eoveW
contract had been secured by Ralph.
Saturday mornlug Elizabeth went
back tu the boarding school, where
sbe wus a teacher of music, but before sbe went she inclosed her engagement ring lu u tluy box. registered it uud sent it to Ralph's office, with
a brief note explaining ber action.
"It hus all been a mistake." she suid.
Aunt Aguthu's farewell of her was
prolonged uud affectionate at tbe late
breakfast, several hours after the ring
aud letter had been sent.
"Ooodby, my dear Elizabeth. I've

Walter Knox of Orlllia Has Faced ■

Stories of professional foot runners being shot at lor winning and
shot at tor losing races aro usually
reminiscent of the good old dnys of

"as flooded with croobed sprinters

\ersation rounded to gun-plny over
loot races. Now, Knox is a silent
lellow. He hns by hard experience
learned the wisdom of keeping his
noutli shut and his ears open. Them-
'ore when he rounded to and com
nenced to talk about his adventures
u that line, I was more tlian surprised that he should loosen up. How
ver, it is a cinch he never considered
fur a second that his tales of tighl
nunrters would ever reach the cal

■stories were only levealed after much
idroit questioning or politic silence at

New President ef the International
Convention Has Labored In Cause
For i Long Time—Is Manager of
the Dominion Securities, and Also
Holds Down ■ Number of Jobs on
the Beards of Various Corporation!.
Mr. E. R. Wood is now president ot
the international Y.M.C.A. convention,
whicb concluded this year's labors in
Toronto recently. It would have beeu
difficult for Mr. Wood to have got thia
honor without having earned it. Merely because he ia a financier and a
strong church worker would not entitle him to it. He is a day-in-day-out
believer in and worker lor the K.M.
CA. movement, which of late years
haa happily broadened its platform
sufficiently to permit men of Mr. E. R.
Wood'a calibre to take prominent posi-
tions. A thinnish, shrewd-looking
man, Mr. Wood moves quietly and
quickly, and makes no poses. Since
he came up Irom Peterboro' way—
that source of so many brainy financial men in Tomato where, like his
forerunner. Senator Cox, he was once
telegraph operator—he has made progress at very swift rate in the financial
world. He began in Toronto on tht.
staff of the Central Canada Loan &
Savings Co.; is at present manager uf
tiie Dominion Securities Corporation;
vice-president oi the National Trust
Co., and a director oi the Crow's Nest
Paas Coal Co., the Western and the
Canada Lile Assurance Co. and the
Canadian Bank oi Commerce. Incidentally ho is a Methodist, and a
working one. He takes as much interest in some phases oi church work a*
he does iu finance. But he never
makes a noise. His election as president of the Y.M.C.A. convention is the
lirst really public place he has taken
outside oi finance.
Actor, Soldier, and Aviator,
During the 8outh African war Mr.
Robert Loraine saw much service, and
on two occasions was offered commissions. Shortly after his return Irom
the front be was sitting in the Carlton
Hotel, London, surrounded by an admiring throng ol iair cousins, who
looked upon him as a hero. Altogether
he was quite pleased with himsell, he
snys. A brother actor, whom he had
not seen for some time, happened to
pass, and, looking at the battle-stained
actor, remarked, "Halloa, old chap,
you are looking tit! Been at Brighton?"
Mr. Loraine tells another story
against himself. In his early theatrical days it waa the custom ol one of
the managers to criticize every individual performance at each new town
the company visited alter the tall of
the curtain on the stage. One night
he did not say anything to young Loraine. He reminded the manager of
his omission by saying, "Aa you did
not say anything about my performance, 1 take it it was all right." Then
came Uie icy reply, "1 did not aay
anything about your show, because
what I have to say to you 1 must say
in private."
A Dramatic Situation.
Beau llrunimel was once sitting at

known to be insane. The Beau, having lost a considerable stake, afiec-
ed, in his farcical way, a very tragic
air and cried out, "Waiter, hr ng u.e
a flat candlestick and a pistol,'' upi n
which Bligh, who was sittii.g o. post _
to him, calmly produced two loaded
pistols Irom his coat pocket, which
be placed on the tr.ble, and said, "Mr,
Brummel, if you are really ilesiious
to put a period to your existence I
am extremely happy to offer yt u Ihe

I have been treated by doctors tor
twenty-live years (or a bad case of eczema
on my leg. They did their best, but failed
to cure tt. My own doctor had advised me
to Imve my leg cut off, but I said I would
try the Cuticura Remedies first. He said,
"try tliem if you like but I do not think
tbey will do any good." At this time my
leg waa peeled from the knee down, my
foot was like a piece of raw flesh and I
had to walk on crutches, I bought a cake
of Cuticura Soap, a box of Cuticura Ointment and a bottle of Cuticura Resolvent.
After the first two treatments the swelling
went down and in two months' use of the
Cuticura Remedies my leg was cured and
the ne* skin grown on. The doctor could
not believe hla own eyes wben he saw tbat
Cuticura had cured me and said that be
would use Cuticura for his own patients.
But for the Cuticura Remedies I might
have lost my life. I am truly grateful for
the wonderful cure that Cuticura wrought.

frequent users of Cuticura and I always
recommend it most highly as a sure and

In  1175 the Oam*  First Came  Into

or leather stuffed with flocks, called
harpastum, or with a windbag, called
It is not possible, says an English
writer, to produce any direct evidence
ol the progress or popularity of tho
game in   England   prior to the year
1175.    lt is fairly conclusively established, however,   that   lootball   goes
back  several  centuries  lurther  than
cricket.   In 1175 William Fitsstephen,
writing   in   his   history   ol   London,
mentions   the   fact  that  it   was  the
habit of the young men of the city to
piny at the well-known game of ball
after dinner.    And there can be no
doubt that this game was football, but
what   its   outstanding   features   were
can only be a matter of guesswork.
The game was confined to the lower
classes; no rules existed for its control; the contests seem to have been
more in the nature ol general scrambles, the goals being placed at either
end of u town or street; and the number of players seem to have been unlimited.
Although popular, it met with opposition  from   the   authorities.    Edward II., in 1314, lorbade lootball under pain of imprisonment, owing to
the "great noise in the city caused by
hustling over large balls, from which
many evils might arise, which tiod
forbid."  The game, nevertheless, pro
gressed.   In 1315 Edward III. ordered
his   sheriffs  to  suppress  "such   idle
practices,"    because    "the    skill    at
shooting with arrows was almost totally   laid  aside for the  purpose ot
various useless and unlawful games."
But so persistent   were   the   popular
classes  in this almost national pastime that Richard II. and his successors   had   to   continue   to   proclaim
against "tennisse, footballe, and other
games."   This determined persecution
had no appreciable   effect,   however.
The people persisted in the game they
loved better than the law. James III.
of Scotland also found it nece*sary to
order  quarterly   practices   of    arms
when "footballe and golfe be utterly
cryed down and not to be used."
Flayed almost exclusively by the ignorant and rough, tabooed by the upper classes, accompanied by frequent
deaths and serious injuries occasioned by the excessive brutality and ruffianism displayed, lootball was as deservedly persecuted in those days a*
it is encouraged and   patronized   by
royalty to-day.   That the game was
still unlawful in the time ol Elizabeth
is evidenced by the lact that a Middlesex  jury  brought  in  a true  bill
against  a  number  of   persons   who
"with unknown   malefactors   to   the
number  of   11   assembled  themselves
unlawtully and played a certain un-
lawlul    game   called    foote-ball,   by
means    of    which    unlawful    game
there was amongst them a great affray likely to result ill homiudes and
serious accidents."
Stoubbs, in his "Anatomy of Abuses
in the Leulm nf England," deserire-
football as a devilish pastime, resisting in brawling, murder and grent el-
lusion of blood. Yet so far tht> gauie
was more handball than football, '/'he
gradual refinement and regulation o<
t'.'.e game resulted in a decreasn of iti"
popularity, so thnt at the beginning
of the nineteenth century the game al
most disappeared altogether. Thee
the lending public schools took up the
game, each in its own particular style.
In 1855 the Blnckhe.ith and Richmond clubs were lormed, and in 1?83
the Football Association. In 1877 the
number of players was reduced fioni
20 to 15.

A Good Digestion
means a man or woman e°°J for
something—good work or pleasant
times. Whoever has distress after
eating, sick headaches, nausea,
bad taste, unpleasant breath, cannot find good In anything, or be of
much use in Uie world.
But these symptoms arc only
signs that the stomach needs a little
care and attention and thc aid that
ean give. Safe, reliable, thoroughly
tried, this family remedy hns wonderful reviving power. They tone
the stomach, liver and bowels-all
organs of digestion. With these
organs ln good order, the whole
ij-stem   is  better and   stronger.

The discovery ol remains, apparently th_.se ol a hippopotamus, a

peaceful County of Cambridgeshire,
England, is nn event of some interest   and perhaps of   some scientific
It is well known, of course, in prehistoric ages the mammoths roamed
England Many remains ol those
early inhabitants of our isles have
been found and more will probably
be found when further excavations
are  made.
In pnrtiriiiir, we remark in passing, that the great plain at Mdorshot
seems to offer pood opportunities to
the scientific enquirer, for few who
have examined it in even a cursory
munner can doubt that it was at one
time an inland sea, and Ihis view is
supported hy the discovery of shells
in many exposed parts of the neighborhood.
Re that as It may, the evidence
that the hippopotamus made his
horn? in Ihe neighborhood of the
present University of Cambridge
seems conclusive, although he prudently disappeared long before the
first professor appeared on the scene
to disturb his haunts by the inconvenient scier'iflc enquiries that occasionally embarrass the modern undergraduate.
England was in those days a tropical country, and evidently joined to
the continent by a strip of land that
has since disappeared, but the boggy
lands of the Fen district need not
otherwise have changed much until
they were drained, for the soft,
marshy soil and pools would offer a
suitable home to the hippopotamus.

The people of this district
should not take too seriously
to heart Mr. Burrell's gloomy
forecast of the agricultural industry in this province in the
event of the adoption of tlie

of granting the V., V. & 1']. an

FRIDAY,   FEBRUARY 17,  1911
It is a fundamental principle of all popular governments
that legislators should enact
laws for the greatest beneflt
ofthe largest number of people; and it is generally conceded that the reciprocity treaty
will accomplish this end. It
is admitted that the western
farmer will be benefited by a
reduction ofthe tariff on farm
implements and tho unobstructed entry of his products
into the United States; the
eastern fisherman will secure
a larger market for the product of his toil, audi tho consumer in every section of the
country will be given a better
opportunity to trade in the
cheapest market, which will
in Jill probability reduce the
present high cost of living.
Yet the treaty • is being
vigorously opposed in this
province, where the tariff wall
and high freight rates have!
hoisted the prices of the neces-;
sarins to an outrageous altitude. The politicians—who
essay to speak for tlie fanner
—say that the treaty, if ratified, will ruin our agricultural industry. They say
this, because tney realize that
if thev can succeed in defeating the agreement thoy will
bc storing up political capital
which may stand them in good
stead in the future, lint the
ranchers themselves are offer-
ing no serious objections to
tlie treaty. In this valley,
which has in recent years
gained an enviable reputation
for the excellent fruit it produces, we Jjave yet to meet a
rancher who believes that the
apple growing industry will
be adversely affected. The
largest fruit grower in the
valley h is expresso I himself
as feeling conti lent that the
agrivan'lit will not injure that
branch of horticulture; but ho
feel • Bolicitous concerning the
future of prune culture.   This1

Uud Reirlntry onioo,
Kmiilu  11.11.. Slijit. 1,
at Washington mi Tuescluy
overwheluiing umjurity:
The blue bonk tabled in the hmi
of cutiiiiiiMis mi Munfliiy respitoting i e
reciprocity agreement and its probable
effect u|inii the relatiens of the two
countries eoneenie.l furnishes some in
teresting information at this pailiru-'
Iar time, when the subjout is being
widely discussed.
Tlie figures for the probable reduo-'
tions are bused upon the trade returns
for the past yeaiyind while it is hoped
that Canada's business will greatly increase during the coining twelve
months, the statistics employed nevertheless constitute a fair means of estimating the results of n year's opera
tion under the contemplated agreement.
Under the schedule which now culls
for the abolition of all duties,. Canada
will lose in revenue to the amount, of
1,-11^,219, while tho total loss on the
entile agreement will reach S2,ou7,
624. Of the amount this country
loses by the wiping out of all duties,
thc free importation of United fcilutcs
products will amount to Sl,2!Jo,lil 1;
Britain, ¥62,829; Hritish colonies,
S2'J,2i2, and favored nations, §21,-
5iiT. The Canadian consumer gets
the benefit of all these reductions.
Under Schedule li, which admits
articles into Canada at a W_te similar
to that placed upon our exports into
the United .States, and under Schedule
I), which fixes special rates for American exports to this country, the total
revenue loss to Canada will reach
$1,095,605, the United States accounting for 81,068,251 of this
amount. Canada, it will be seen, reduces its turilf duties a_.uim_t the United States to .the extent of #2,868,763.
What does the Dominion secure in
return for this concession? The total
reduction ou Canadian products going
into the States is $4,840,033 under tlie terms of the new agreement.
Of this sum the gain to Canada under
Schedule A, which wipes out all duties, is #4,236,988; under Schedule H,
which admits articles to the United
States at the same rale at whicli they
enter Canada, the gain to this country's exporters is S2.'>l,!)'vl2, while uu
der Schedule O, which culls fui special
rates, our gain is #377,961.
In other words, the reciprocity
agreement means in dollars and cents
that Canada is gettina the long cud
of a bargain, which will prove to the
advantage of both parties concerned,to
the extent of the difference between
$4,840,933 and $2,363,768, Disre-
urding the advantage that must ensue fur the /'consumer, tlie producer
and lhe exporter the agreement is one
that should appeal even to tliose who
consider the financial aspect of such
matters lirst and the effect upon the
general prosperity of the country only
when such an agreement Bervea to sup
port the original premise,
Nothing in the agreement would
seem to justify the statements made
in opposition lo il thai "it will weali-
thi' imperial tiu" or "result in
Canada's annexation   by   the United

Fruit In Britain Has Been an Objett
The successful shipment of Canadian peaches en a commercial scale
to the markets of Great Britain, will
mark the year 1010 as the beginning
of a new phase in the development ol
the tender fruit industry in Canada.
There has been extensive planting ol
peach orchards during the past few
years, and notwithstanding the enlarged market in the Northwest, the
crop has now reached such proportions, or at least it will in a year or
two, that there will be no encouragement to increase the peach acreage,
unless some other outlet is in sight.
Thc Dominion Department of Agriculture, ns represented by the Dairy
and Cold Storage Commissioner, ear-
ly In the season made arrangements to
purchase a quantity of peaches to be
packed in single layer cases, each
peach to lie wrapped in paper and
surrounded with wool.
The packing was done under the direct supervision of an officer of tha
Department. The contract with the
growers, as represented by the St.
Catharines Cold Storage .'. Forwarding Co , was for 2,000 cases, but, ow-
in.j to stormy weather and other
causes, only 1,200 cases were ready in
Three varieties have been shipped,
namely, "Early Crawford," "Old Mix-
on" and "Klherta." These have all
been landed in good condition. The
packing has been reported as perfect.
In some cases it was necessary to
hold the peaches for a few days to
allow them to ripen.
The returns have been very encouraging to erowers. Each case contained only 20 to 25 peaches, or about 6
pounds of fruit. The selling prices so
far reported have varied from three
shillings and three pence to si* shillings and six pence, the uvernge net
return to the growers being nearly $1
per case f.o.b. ears at 8t. Catharines.
The Department of Agriculture guaranteed tlie growers the local price
(about 31-2 cents per pound I plus tlie
extra cost ut packing, with the understanding that anything realized in excess of the guarnntee would be paid
over to them. It would now seem that
the growers will receive several times
the anmunt of the guarantee.
Spci-1 relrieera or cars were arranged for by the Department to carry tha
peaches to Montreal, and cold storage chambers were reserved on steamers for throe weekly sailings eaeh to
London, Liverpool and Glascow, and
one to Bristol. The facilities thus
provided made private shipments possible. Mr. C. A. Dobson. ot the -Ior.
dan Hnrbor Peach Ranch, has made
successful shipments of several hundred eases of peaches, and others have
shipped penrs and early apples.
Throught the refrigerator car ani
ear_.o inspection services of this
branch of the Department of Agriculture, we will have complete data respecting the temperature and other
conditions under which the fruit was
carried until it reached the markets
in Great Britain.
This information will be issued in
tha form of a bulletin for the guidance of growers who mny wish to
male shipments in future. The trail
will be well blazed and it wil] he lhe
fault of the shio-ers if they do not
follow it successfully.
A recent bulletin makes the follow,
ing announcement respecting the season's crop: "In Eastern Canada 'he
peach crop has been very irreguln*',
anil unite conflicting reports have been
received. As the crop approaches maturity nnd is being harvested, the een-
eral estimation would be that there m
a medium to full crop, but 'light in
certain varieties. The late peaches am
even better than the earlier varieties.
Thc EaHy Crnwfords were betle- than
usual. The Smock will be a med;um
crop. The Elhertas, however, are lieht.
British Columbia reports a full crop
of both early and late peaches."
It also contains this information of
importance to shippers; "Many peach
growe'j are shipring this year for the
firat time in peach boxes. It should
he not'tl thai, while the Inspection
and Sale Act prescribed no name and
addresses Ior the peach basket, the
peach box must he marked the same
as any other closed packag". Tlm
inspectors are reporting a number of
cases whore peach boxes hove not
been properly marked."
The presence in the English market of Cnnadian peaches will pre'-nt
to thc British public another aspect
ol our resources.

pleased all who hnve had the plensure

wonderful talent is perhaps best seen

WHEN Mr. Bowser came home
the other evening be had a

"No, but"-

Mra. Bowser had knelt to have a
closer look at the bird.   She arose

made a discovery, and she didn't exactly know how to handle lt.
"Ever see a liner bird?" be asked aa
tbey descended to the dining room.
"Did you buy him at a bird store?"
"I did. I bad bad my eye on him for
• couple ot weeks."
"And they said he wu a whlppoorwlll'."
"They didn't have to. I called and

"When yoo were a boy on a farm

queried Mra. Bowser after an Interval.

like a cbolce morsel.
Was It a Whippoorwill?
"Tbe bird will be company for you
wben 1 happen to be out of an evening." he went on. "Borne folks think
a wbipporwlll's song la a bit mournful,
but I don't. It's a fact tbat he sings
wltb such fervor aa makes tbe first
few notes seem tinged with aome great
grief. You had no Idea that I was
ifter such a bird, bad you?"
"I try to be considerate toward yon.
indeed, I may say that I bought tbe
bird aolely on your account. 1 hope
you will lake to each other and that
tn time he will alt on your shoulder
and utter his lay. We will now go up
and hear htm trill forth."
The cage was brought from tbe ball
Into tbe sitting room find placed under
the llabt.   Mrs. Bowser took another
and still closer look, and she gated at
Mr. Bowser In a pitying way. Be failed to notice lt, but stood before the
cage with his fingers ln tbe armholea
of his vest and said:
"Only cost $10, and he's worth double   tbat.   It  surely   was  a   happy
thnuirht of mine.    See bim cock bla
head on one Bide and look at me."
"Do you tblnk he knows tbat I'm

"Very likely."
"That's what the bird man said—
thnt he'd know me In a very little

But the bird wasn't He sat on bis
perch and had a puzzled look about
bim and finally closed bis eyes ln
"Like a tired Infant," whispered Mr.
Bowser as he tiptoed away and sat
There was utter silence ln the room
tor the next Hve minutes. Then the
bird gaped and uttered a sort of croak.
"That's u sign of hunger." was whispered. "Mrs. Bowser, have you any
cold corned beef In the house?"
"Mercy, but he won't eat such stuff!
You'll have to get seed of some sort."
"Cm!   1 forgot that   I'll be out of
bed at 0 in tbe morning.   I'll try him
now with a drink."
Bird Falls to Tak* Water.
A pint bowl of water was put In tbe
cage, but lt attracted no notice.
"Mrs. Bowser, It's you," said Mr.
Bowser after standing and ppzzllng
for awhile. "You and the bird are not
en rapport and he feels It. Birds can
tell wben people are down on tbem."
"But I'm not down on this one."
"But he feels a sort ot constraint, a
coldness. You had no Welcome for
j him. 1 don't want to say anything
harsh to you, but lt you assume an
inimical attitude toward this helpless
and innocent hearted bird 1 shall huve
to bave a talk with you. Go into the
otber room for awhile until 1 get him
to singing. He looks as If be expected
you to hit bim with tbe ax every Instant"
Mrs. Bowser went upstairs and was
gone twenty minutes. Just as she returned tbe bird opened Its mouth,
flapped Its wlugs and uttered a sound
between a squawk and a shriek.
"By thunder!" gasped Mr. Bowser.
"That Is one of bis songs, 1 take It"
she observed.
"He did tbat as be caught sight of
you. The poor thing knows you are
ready to murder bim tbe moment my
back Is turned. By John, woman, even
the birds of the air can read you!"
"That's "because I used to chase so
many out of the cherry trees wben I
was a little girl."
"Chase wblppoorwllls at nlgbt?"
"No—blackbirds by day.   Mr. Bowser, you have been done for. That Is a

"Woman, what do you mean?"

"Just what I say.   I should  bnve

more a whlppoorwlll than our cat."
"Woman, this Is the last straw." be

"And from the looks of lt 1 shoiili!

as well.   Blackbirds have been tannin
to squawk a little, but never to slug.

"In my own house 1 am Insulted!"
"I don't see how."
"1 am told that I am a fool."
"I have simply told you that you
bought a  blackbird for a  whlppoorwlll. Even If you bad got tbe latter be
never would have uttered a note. Tbat
breed of birds never sings in captivity."
Mr. Bowser lifted up the cage and
left the house with lt, going straight
to tbe family butcher.
"I'll get you hundreds like him from
tbe farm at 10 cents apiece." waa answered. "Can you leave the bird
here? Of cnusse. Yes. perhaps 1 can
give htm and the cage away. Am I
sure as to tbe breed? Wby. man. your
own wife must know that this is s
blackbird. If you want something to
amuse yon during the long winter

i When tbe cageless and blrdless Mr.

Every Indulgence I* Given to Prisoners at th* Last
What happens to a man, condemned
to die on the scaffold, from the time
he leaves the dock doomed, to the moment the small body oi men enter his
cell one morning to inform him that
Ihe hour has come ior the carrying
out of the orders ol the law?
A condemned man has a tew privi-
lcjes not according to other convicts.
He may be allowed to smoke, he may
be granted a little beer on occasions,
his food may be just as he chooses,
but all this greatly depends on the
governor of the prison.       '
A condemned prisoner is never left
alone, day or night; warders are always in the cell, and in the centre
of the floor stands a small table, and
on it rests a book. ThiB book must be
carefully written up, lot it must contain a complete account of all the convict's doing, bis sayings, his requests,
) and so forth. In short, it contains
a detailed account of the convict's life
in the condemned cell, and nothing
must be omitted.
Naturally this book makes very interesting reading, but it ia quite impossible to have a look at it, ior after
tb i execution is over the book is carefully sealed, and is known of no more,
unless the Home Office, Ior some reason, desires to peruse its pages.
A condemned prisoner does not go
ou'. to exercise with other convicts;
he is taken out quite alone when no
inquisitive eyes may rest on him, and
he is not paraded for Church service
with the others. He does attend chapel, but he occupies a pew by himself , and is screened off so that other
convicts may not see him.
Sometimes a condemned man plays
dominoes or draughts with the warders in charge of him—it is a rule to indulge auy condemned prisoner bo far
as possible, but a daily paper he is not
allowed to bave, although he may read
ns much as he likes, but only volumes
from the prison library. He does no
work unless he specially asks for it,
and then he is only give such tasks
as do not necesitate the using of sharp
tools in case oi any attempt at suicide.
A condemned man may write and
receive letters, and he may see visitors, but never alone—a warder is always present, and visitors see the con
vict through a form of grille—they
may neither touch nor kiss him.
On the morning oi the execution
the prisoner is awakened early. Breakfast is given, and it consists of what
the doomed man desires. Afterwards
be may smoke, and await the coming
oi the chaplain. The latter official \,
always in the condemned cell on the
morning of execution.
ln due time the convict's ordinary
clothes are handed in, and these he is
required to put on, hut no collar or tie
accompanies the suit of clothes. They
are net wanted, for the neck must not
be covered up in any way.
Within a few minutes ot eight
I o'clock or nine o'clock, a small body
. of men reach the door of the condemn
ed cell—tbey are the officials entrusted with the carrying out ol the law's
demands. They enter the cell; the
convict stands up, and is asked by one '
particular official il he is "John So-
On un affirmative answer being civ
en, a document haa to be signed by
one of the officials—this document is
u receipt to tbe governor ol the prison
Ior delivering up to the proper authorities the said "John So-and-so's body
for legal execution."
A few preliminaries have to be gone
through with—the prisoner, for instance, is asked if he has anything to
say, uny requests to make. The executioner is then introduced, and swift,
ly the prisoner's arms are pinioned.
Once on the scaffold the business is
soon over—the feet are placed on the
chalked-out marks, the lega are deftly
pinioned, the white cap is placed in
position, the rope is adjusted wilh
running noose lying behind the left
car, the signal is given, and the
hangman doea his part, and in a minute afterwards the execution is completed.—Pearson's Weekly,
No Mistake About It
A populor actress tells the following  story ol Sir   Henry    Irvine,   in
whose support she appeared when he
produced the pny, Peter the Great.
It upoeors that at a rehearsal of the
play in question at the Lyceum Thou,
tre in London a wonderful climax
had been reached, which wos to be
heightened by the effective use ol the
usual thunder und lightning. The
stage carpenter was given the order.
The words were spoken and instantly
a noise which reaembled a succession
of pistoi shots was heard off the
wings. "What on earth are you doing, men?" Bhouted Sir Henry, rushing behind the Bcenes. "Do you cull
thut thunder? It's not a bit like it."
"Awfully Borry, air," responded the
carpenter, "but the fact is, sir, 1
couldn't hear you because of the
storm.   Thut was real thunder, sin"
Face Death Under Water Rathsr Than
the Hunter Above.
The cunning exhibited by certain
species of wi' 1 fowl when wounded
is remarkable. Many a duck hunter
has winged birds from a flock and
seen them di, . never apparently to
return to the surface again. Certain
kinds of ducks which are obtuse in
their willingness to come to decoys
become, when struck by a bullet, little devils of almost sarcastic cleverness.
A case in point occurred not long
ago wben a duck hunter on the St.
Lawrence showered a big coot with
T e shot from his boat secluded in a
rush bed. The duck flrst attempted to
rise, but discovering that its wing
v...s crippled, immediately dropped into the water again and dove. The
hunter stood up in his boat with his
gun leveled lor a second shot at the
bird when it should come to the surface, but he waited in vain ior the reappearance of nis game.
There were few ducks flying to occupy his attention, so he determined
to row out and solve if possible the
mystery of the coot's disappearance.
Thj water under the decoys was shallow enough for him to see clearly the
weed covered bottom, and he paddled
carefully about near the spot where
he had seen the wounded duck lunge
below the surface. Suddenly, in the
clear water below the gunwale ol his
boat, he saw the solution of the mystery.
Anchored a few feet Irom the bottom by a thick reed stalk, wings outstretched and head hanging limply
down over hia back, waa the body of
the elusive coot. With the tension ol
a death grip it was evident he had
clutched the weed to keep himself
Irom rising again to the surface where
he had received before the pain from
the wounding bullet. Rather than
give himself up to thia strange enemy,
he had preferred to remain at the
Running his oar blade into the water, the hunter tried to detach his
game; but so tenaciously did the lee'.
clin» that it was only by severing the
weed itself that the duck was brought
again to the surface. Even when tuk.
en into the boat, the bird's death
grip remained fast upon' the rush
Another instance ot the straits to
which u wounded duck will resort in
evading a hunter was furnished by an
American golden eye. The bird had
been wounded among decoys in o
small water hole of a frozen lake.
When he dove and failed to reappear,
the hunter walked to the other side ol
the hole, and there, through the transparent ice, was astonished to see his
game swimming with both feet and
wings along just under the ice. lt
was evident that the wounded duck,
in its lright, had gone under the ice
and was frantically swimming about
in search of an opening. The hunter
followed the desperate bird for some
little diBtonce. Then the poor creature's strokes began to grow weaker,
the wing action censed, and Anally
the body lay still against the undei
surface of the ice. With an uxe the
hunter chopped out the drowned duck

• Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription
Is  the best  of  all  medicines   for  the cure of  diseases,
disorders  and weaknesses  peculiar to women.   It is the
only preparation of its kind devised by a regularly graduated physician—an experienced  and skilled  specialist  in
the diseases of women.
It is a safe medicine in any condition of the system*
THE ONE REMEDY which contains no alcohol
•nd no injurious  habit-forming  drugs and which
creates no craving for such stimu^iuts.
THE ONE REMEDY so  good   that   its   makers
are not  afraid  to  print its  every ingredient on
each  outside   bottle - wrapper   and  attest to  the
truthfulness of   the   same under oath.
It is sold hy medicine denier., everywhere, and any dealer who hasn't it can ■
£ct it.    Don't take a substitute of unknown composition for this medicine op
known COMPOSITION.    No counterfeit is as good ns the genuine and the druggist
who Bays something else is "just ns good ns Dr, Pierce's" is either mistaken
or is trying to deceive you for his own selfish benefit.   Such a man is not to be
trusted.    .'Tr.  In  trifling with vour most  priceless possession—your health—
ii..;- i'e your litV itself.    Set that yuu get what you ask for.
