in the valley, and the local orchardists who are ahout to install similar
plants were naturally very much interested in its initial test. It can
be snid without exaggeration that
they were highly pleased with the
trial. Those who expressed their
views regarding the system, felt confident that it was the most efficacious
and economical method that could
possibly be devised for placing an
adequate water supply at the dis
posal of the farmers.
The substation is located near
the Great Northern bridge, and from
this point the power will he distributed to the fanners who are now
' t installing plants. The station is
equippetl with lightning arresters and
all the latent improved appliances.
Thc electric current enters the sub
mail, Wash.
As even the name of char-pitting
may be unfamiliar to people who have
had no etpeneuce in, or the chance of
the obseYvation of, lund clearing operations, it may be explained that it
is a scientific process for burning out
stumps in a man tier which call, for a
minimum of expense ami attention.
Here in the Pacilic Northwest the
methods used in the east for clearing
logged over would prove quite inado
quite, as the stumps nre so huge as to
defy the efforts of even the heaviest
stump pullers. Dynamiting is ell'ee-
tive, hut it is costly ami the element

of Ihe power coinpany, gave nn in

The little group-on the portico stepB
melted away, and one by one the
slouching figures vanished into the
darkness. Zary stepped on to the
pavement, and proceeded to open the
front door of the next house. It
yielded to his touch.
"I am glad of this," he said; "and
really we owe a debt of gratitude tc
the tender hearted rufiian who was
averse to leaving a poor girl in this
house all nlone. We will spare Fenwick the trouble of any inconvenience
so far as she is concerned."
So saying, Zary proceeded to walk
up the stairs, turning up the lights
as he went. He culled the name of
Beth softly three or lour times, and
presently a doer opened overhead and
a girl in a white dress came out. A
pleased smile spread over her face
as she looked over the balusters and
noted the caller.
"Felix," she said softly, "is it really you? I have been hiding myself
in my room because I was terrified
and after Charles had gone those men
quarrelled so terribly amongst themselves. I suppose Charles forgot all
about me in the excitement of the
"Oh, no, he didn't, dear one," Zary
said gently. "He would have come
back to you in any case. But I am
going to take you away from this
house where you have been so miserable. I am going to see that you are
not molested in the future."
"That is all very well," Venner interposed, "'but where ean the young
lady go? She is quite alone and help,
less, and unless yon hove some re.
putable female relation
hotel at any time she returned.   Oh,
no doubt she is returning, or I don't
suppose for a moment that she would
have asked me all those questions."
The  information    was    sufficiently
disturbing, but there was'no help for
i it.    All they had to do was to  sit
! down and wait patiently    till   Vera
j came  back.    They  were  not in the
I least likely to attract attention, see-
! ing thut several men in evening dress
! together with their wives were seated in the hall for a final chat after
the theatre.   In her long white frock
partially  concealed  by   a clouk   antl
hood, Beth would have easily passed
for a girl fresh from a theatre or a
dance.   It whs a long weary wait of
over an hour, nnd  Venner was feeling distinctly anxious when the hig
folding doors at the end of the hall
now and her cheeks were wet. "It is
not for my own sake—it is for the
sake of the poor girl upstairs. I had
promised to say nothing ol that to
anyone—to try and save her—and 1
left you und ran the risk of forever
forfeiting your affection. But if
Beth is better in the morning I will
try to get her to absolve me from my
promise and induce her "
"She  is  not  capable  of  giving  a
promise ot    rescinding   it,"   Venner

"II I had stuck to my prolossion
and left politics severely alone," the'

to have said towards the end of his
life, "I should have been a richer

Le Fenu?"
"So you know all about that?"
Vera cried.
"Yes, I do. I have seen him tonight. Gurdon has already had an
interview    with    him—an    interview
opened and Vent's tall graceful lig- .that almost cost him his life.    Oh,
"It is not a matter of my relations,"
Zary smiled. "Miss Beth will go to
one who is her natural protector, and
who will watch over her welfnr' with
unceasing cere. To put it plainly,
Miss Beth is going to the Grand Empire hotel, md you are going to take
her. To-night she will sleep under the
same roof us her Bister."
Venner was just a littl- startled by
the suddenness of the proposal, yet
the suggestion was an exceedingly natural one, for who was better capable
of looking after the unfortunate Beth
than her own sister? True, the hour
was exceedingly late; but then, a
huge place like the Grand Empire
hotel was practically open night and
day, and a request at one o'clock ir
the morning that a guest should b>
knocked up to receive another guest
would be nothing in the way of a
"Very well." Venner snid. "Let her
put on her hat and jacket, and she
can come with me at once."
Fenwick Move. Again.
Beth raised no objections to the
programme; indeed, the suggestion
seemed to fill her with delight. She
would nnt he a moment, she suid.
8he would put certain necessaries in
a handbag, and come buck for the
rest of her wardrobe on the morrow.
Venner hud expressed a desire that
Zary should accompany him hut the
latter shook his head emphatically.
"No, no," he said, "you lire going
alone. As for me, I have important
business on hand which will not
brook the slightest delay. Mr. Gurdon had hest return to his own rooms
and fir his own sake I woultl advise
him to keep in the middle ol the
road. You two little know the danger you incurred when you decided
to thrust your head into this hornet's
nest. Now I will see you lioth off the
premises und put out nil the lights.
I may mention in passing that 1 have
a latchkey to this place,"
A few minutes later Venner found
himself walking down the deserted
streets with his fair little companion
hanging on his arm. She shattered
10 him very prettily und daintily.
hut there was n great deal in her remarks which conveyed nothing to
him at ull. She constantly alluded
to matters of which he was entirely
ignorant, apparently Inking it for
granted that he wns au fait with what
she was saying. It struck Venner,
thnt although not exactly mentally
deficient, she wns suffering from
weakness of intellect, brought about,
probably, by some great shock or terrible sorrow. On the whole he was
not. sorry to find himself in the great
hall of the hotel, the lights of which
were still burning, nnd where several
guests were lounging for n final cigar.
"I know it is exceedingly lute,"
Venner said to tlie clerk, "but it is
quite imperative thnt this young lady
should see Miss Fenwick. Will you
be good enough to send up to her
room und tell her bow sorry I am
to disturb her at Ibis time of night,
but that the matter is exceedingly

that she could get   back    into   thc

"Here is your sister," Venner said.
There was just tt stern suggestion in
his voice. "Now you are not to cry
or make any scene, you are not to
attract nny attention to yourself,
but take it all for granted. You can
be as emotional ns you please when
you nre nlone together in your
"Vera came across the hall in a
jaded weary way, as if she were thoroughly tired out. Her face flashed
a little as she recognised Veiiner.
Then she looked at his companion
and almost paused, whjle the blood
ebbed from her face, leaving it deadly pale.
"Gerald," she whispered. "Gerald
and Beth. What does it mean? What
strange thing has happened to bring
you both together here?"
"Don't make a scene, for goodness'
sake," Venner said. "Take it as
calmly as you can. Unless you are
self-possessed, your sister is sure to
give way, and that is the last thing
in the world to be desired. I cannot
possibly stop now to tell you all the
extraordinary things which hnve
happened to-night. Let it be sufficient to sny thot it is obsolutely imperative thnt you give your sister
shelter und that nobody but yourself
should know where she is."
"But how did you find her?" Vera
nsked. "Arid who was it suggested
that you should bring her to me?"
"Let me just mention the name of
Zary," Venner replied. "Oh, 1 con
come round here to-morrow and tell
you ull about it.   If you think there
is nny possible danger "
"Of course there is danger," Vera
snid. "Mr. Fenwick may be back at
any moment. He does not know
that I nm aware thut my sister is
even alive. If he became acquainted
with the fact that we had come together again, all my plans would be
absolutely ruined, and my three years
ol self-sacrifice would be in vnin."
"I nm nfraid you must run the
risk now," Venner snid. "At nny
rate your sister will have to stay
here till the morning. It is perhaps
a good thing thnt she does not un-
derstnnd what is going on."
Apparently the girl had no real
comprehension nf all the anxieties
and emotions of which she was unconsciously the centre. 8he was
holding her sister's hand now and
smiling tenderly into her face, like
a child who has found a long lost
"You may rest assured on one
point," Venner went on. "For the
present there is not the slightest reason to fenr Fenwick. He hus hnd n
great shock to-night; all his plans
have been upset, and he finds himself in a position of considerable
danger. I know for a fnct that he
is going straight away to Canterbury, and probably by this time he
is on his way there. According to
what your mysterious friend Znry
snid, he hnd some plan cut nnd dried
for providing for your sister's safety
to-morrow. Now tnke the poor chiltl
to bed, for she is half asleep nlrendy
ami when once you hnve mnde her
comfortable I wnnt you to come
down ngnin nnd have n few words
with me. Oh, you need not hesitate;
surely a man can talk to his wife
whenever he pleases—and, besides,
there are several people here who
show not the slightest signs of going
to bed yet."
"Very well," Vera said, "Come
along dearest, 1 see you are dreadfully sleepy—so sleepy that you tlo
nol appear to recognise the sister
you have met lor the first time for
three yenrs."
Venner had lime tn smoke the best
pnrt of u cignr before Vera reappeared, They took a seat ill n secluded
corner of the hall, where it wns possible to talk without interruption.
"Now, please, tell me everything,"
Venner replied. "This is one of the
most extraordinary and complicated
businesses that 1 ever heard of. In
the first place, I came to England,
weory antl worn out with my search
for you, and ball inclined io abandon it altogether. In Ihe very last
place in the world where I expect
to meet you, I come in contact with
you in this hotel. I find that, you
arc being passed off ns the daugh-
ter of one of the greatest scoundrels
who ever cheated the gallows. But
that does not check my faith in you.
I had kept my trust in you intact.
Ever since you left mo on the day
of our marriage 1 have had nothing
but a tew words to explain your
amazing conduct; nnd now here am
1 doing my best to free you from the
chains that bind you, nnd all the
while you seein to hug those chains

Why do you tlo this? What is the
secret thnt you conceal so carelully
Irom the man who would do anything
to save you from trouble, from the
man you profess to love? II you do

"Oh, I tlo Indeed," Vera whispered.    There   were   teurs  in   her  eyes

fine adventures the last two or three
days—but if it ull ends in snving

would be distasteful to you, and becnuse you have given some foolish
promise which you are loth to break.
But tell me one thing. You said just
now that you bad not seen your sister for three years, though she has
been living with your brother, whom
you visited quite recently."
"That is easily explained," Vera
said. "It was deemed necessary to
tell Beth ve or two fictions with a
view to easing her mind and leaving
her still some slight shadow of
hope, which was the only means of
preserving her reason from absolutely leaving her. These fictions
entailed my keeping out of the way.
Beth is exceedingly different from
me, ns you know."
"Indeed she is," said Venner,
smiling for the first time. "But does
it not strike you as nn extraordinary thing that I should be fighting
in this fierce way in your behalf,
and that you should be placing negative obstacles in my way all the
time? I won't worry you any more
to-night dearest^you look tired and
worn out. You had better go to
your own room, and we can discuss
this mutter further in the morning."

As te Why the Negro Is Black and
tht  Indian  Rsd.
One question which always hu interested scientist, is "what makes
ths Omen-inn white, the negro black,
and the Indian red?" The popularly
accepted theory has heen that tbe
races of black and red skjns ara
made so as "ie result oi continuous
exposure to glaring sunlight, but now
a l»tr-ied German professo-, Dr. A.
Rergleld. come forward with the idea
that it is aU a mere matter ol feeding. Dr. Bergfeid points cut that in
Ihe animal and insect world color it
often determined by Iood, and he
argues thnt by chemical process the
same results are shown in the different human-races.
He thinks that the original man
was black, as his principal diet must
have heen vegetarian. Fruit and
vegetable: contain maneonntes which
ally themselves with ircn, making a
dark brown combination. Dr. Bergfeid says that negroes who add meat
and milk to their vegetable fare are
never as dark as those who only eat
Indians ere red heowse they have
,'bsorhed for generations haemoglobin, the red substance, in the blood
of animals killed fnr Iood.
Mongols ore yellow because they
descend Irom dark fruit eating races
who penetrated into the plains ol
Asia, became shepherds and lived to
a great extent on milk, which contains chlorine und hus a bleaching
The Caucasians were another
b-'ieh who beeaiiirt still whiter by
adding salt to their dielaiy. Common sail Is a strong chloride and is
a powerful agent in bleaching tht
.kin. The effect, he declares, can be!
seen on negto children who have been
brought up on n white dietnry. They
sre never ns black as their kindred
who have not nbundoncd Vegetarian
And no doubt the statement was
perfectly true, for there is surely no
profession which rewards its most
gifted followers so poorly ss lhat ol
For more than sixty years the late
W. li. Gladstone devoted his great
abilities and untiring energy to politics for u money reward which did
not average the salary of some bank
managers or newspaper editors; and
this although he spent much more
thnn a quarter of a century in office,
nnd for sixteen of these years drew
$25,000 n yenr. His offlcinl enrnings
during the whole of his long lifetime only totulled, roughly, $575,000.
representing an average of $8,275 a
year. »Hnd the great statesman devoted himself as enthusiastically to.
let us say, the Bar, he might reasonably have trebled his revenue as a
Minister of the Crown.
Lord Salisbury's political triumphs
paid him only at an average rate of
$250 a week, spread over his forty-
seven years of labor, although for
twenty years as Indian and' Foreign
Secretary and First Lord of the Admir-
alty his revenue was a yearly $25,-
000. If his lordship had even remain,
ed true to his clever pen .during all
theBe years of toil at statesmanship
he might have hoped to fare as well
The lute Duke of Devonshire was
nineteen and a half years in office,
and drew $320,000 of Government
money; but his average income from
this source, spread over all the. years
of his political life, was under $7,000
—or less than the pay of an Under
Secretarv. Viscount Cross was nearly
half a century at Westminster for $370,-
000, or less than $8,000 a year—an in-
come which he could at least have
trebled in a profession. Mr. Joseph
Chamberlain would nevet have grown
rich from statesmanship as he has
done from commerce; for in a quarter
of a century all his takings were $195,-
000, a sum which he has probably
made in a single year of business life
at Birmingham. This, too, although
he had more than his share of the
"plums" in the shape of eleven years
of office out of twenty-five.
Lord Lansdowne's long work at poli-
tics, covering forty-three years, hat
only added $170,000 to his exchequer,
a sum probably less than his broad
acres yield in three months. Lord
George Hamilton has drawn $340,000
in forty-one years—or a yearly average of $8,300, which cannot be regarded as an extravagant reward for a
mon of his abilities. The late Lord
Gosehen was but little better off with
$350,000 lor a still longer service; and
Lord Rosebery's share of the "plums."
during forty years and more, is only
valued at $88,000, the price he might
pay for a couple of raoehorses.
Of course, it may fairly be contended that many, if not all of these
statesmen, are rich enough to be quite
independent of their political earnings
—to be able to treat statesmanship as
a lucrative hobby. But it cannot be
denied that such abilities as theirs
would have commanded much greater
rewards in other walks of life.

Why Ptoplt Llvt Longer NowT
Unquestionably, under modem conditions, despite the added, stress ot
existence, we live longer than our
forefathers did. All who read this
paragraph who are of average physique have a reasonable "expectation
ol life," something like ten years in
excess of the others grandparents.
The annual death-rate for the whole
of Great Britain, is about nineteen
in each thousand men, and seventeen
in each thousand women. In 1838 it
was twenty-three lor men, and twenty-two for women. This improvement
is not shown so much among old people, however, as among the young.
These interesting figures are chiefly
important because they show what
the opening of hospitals and the great
advances in medicine and surgery
have done for humanity. We live
longer because advancing science has
thown us the way.
Lord Charlit's "Friend."
Among the stories told by Lord
Charles Beresford when in Canada recently were several concerning "political friends." One was to the effect
that he had just won his scat at an
election, and a few days afterwards
he was driving with the Prince ol
Wales through St. John's Wood, when
thev passed a frowsy-headed dame
who wns evidently under the influence ot liquor. As she beheld the distinguished oeouponts of the carriage
she bowed genially, and, waving her
hand to the successful candidate, exclaimed : "Chawlie, I do declare I An'
fer've got Wyles with yer this mawn-
n'l" His Royal Highness turned to
Lord Charles Beresford and remarked; "Really, you seem to have made
a great many political friends."—

Delights of Summer Prevail for Pour
No longer is the Klondike, even in
popular conception, the lone land of
ice and snow, which fiction and tradition pictured it. Northward, swift
on the heels of the gold-seeking, pioneers have come railroad builders and
telegraph linemen, capitalists, bankers, Settlers, until not only Alaska
hut the far northwest is repeating
California's marvellous story of development.
Steamers, many of them palatial
in fittings, now navigate the rivers;
towns with organised systems of gov.
ernment are growing fast, with
schools, churches, hanks and streets
lighted with electricity and paved.
From end to end of the mighty river,
the Yukon, the traveler may wander
during four months of the year and
never see snow. Instead there will
be a tangle. of rich vegetation, of great
forests, of grass that grows as high as
a man's shoulder, wild berries in
great variety, beautiful ferns waving
in the soft bree7.es, great beds of the
{mrple lupine and the beautiful yel-
ow lilacs bordering the banks everywhere.
Three years ago the inhabitants of
Dawson lived principally on dried
and canned meats und sliced evaporated potatoes. To-day fresh meat is
bought in winter and all vegetables
are grown nearby.
Nothing pleases the Klondiker more
than to entertain a skeptical visitor
from the south at table'with lettuce,
asparagus, green peas or celery
grown in his own rear yard. Moreover, throughout the Klondike country live stock can find sufficient food
to sustain life even in winter.
From Dawson city to St. Michael's
by the Yukon is 1,600 miles, and
during the open season of navigation,
from the middle of May till October,
some 40 stern wheel steamers ply
up and down, making the trip in 10
to 12 days.

Col. Den'ton Arretted.
Col. George T. Denison, Toronto's
famous police magistrate, was once
arrested himself under peculiar circumstances. It waa in the spring of
1868. He was in Montreal, where he
met 8ir Henry Havelock, with whom
he had become acquainted the year
previous in Toronto. Sir Henry, a
son of the Havelock of Indian Mutiny
fame, had come to Canada to succeed
Colonel (afterwards Lord) Wolseley
ag Deputy Quartermaster-General cf
the forces here. He found Colonel
Denison to be a congenial spirit, full
of enthusiasm for military affairs,
and so he asked him to accompany
him on a walking tour through the
Eastern Townships, to secretly examine the frontier and verifying the
official military maps. Col. Denison
was pleased to go along. But the
mysterious movements of the two
when they started aroused considerable suspicion. At last, while they
were at the village ol Huntington,
they were questioned hy a locol
militia officer, and as their answers
did not satisfy him, the two colonels
were arrested. The officer who took
them in charge intimated that the
village magistrate was ready to commit them as "suspicious characters,"
and that they were to be driven
twenty-eight miles to the county jail
at Beauharnois.
At that stage of the proceedings
they bound the magistrate to secrecy,
disclosed their identity, and were
then allowed to proceed. Col. Denison tells the story in his book, "Sol-
diering In Canada," and notes that
this was the only time he was ever
placed under arrest.—Toronto Star.

A couple of members of the Canadian Art Club were recently honored
in New Yoik. At the annual dinner

medal of honor for sculpture was
presented to Mr. A. Phimistcr Proctor, for the statues of tigers which

were exhibited at the Cnnadian Art
Club'i exhibition in Toronto Inst
February. The completed works are
in bronse and are beyond life sine.
Another member of the club, Mr.
Horatio Walker, was honored by the
purchase of his famous picture
"Oxen Drinking," for the Canadian
National Gallery at Ottawa. The pic
ture has for a considerable period
been on exhibition ut the Montrose
galleries in New York. Its removal
to Ottawa has excited so much interest in New York that in making the
announcement, the New York Herald

Regular Attendant
As the new minister of the village
was on his way to evening service he
met a rising young man of the place
whom he was anxious to have become
a member of his church.
"Good evening, my young friend,"
he said, solemnly, "do you ever attend a place of worship?"'
"Yes, indeed, sir; regularly every
Sunday night," replied the young fellow, with a smile. "I'm on my way
to see her now."—Metropolitan Magazine.

to New York. His large factory for
the manufacture of his famous tuberculosis mire, whicli was but little
known twenty years ago, now employs five hhndred man. Owing to the
decrease in tuberculosis, due to the
efficacy of his remedy, the sale are,
nevertheless, gradually falling off.
The social event of the past week
was the lawn party given by Mr. and
Mra. Peter A. Z. Pare, at their beautiful Riverview farm home, in honor
of their daughter's eighteenth birthday. The guests spent an enjoyable
time by indulging in games and
music. But the hit of the evening
was Mr. Paie's narration of his experiences in starting hia orchard. In
1911, he said, his entire fruit crop
consisted of one peach, one pear, one
cherry and two apples. The wind
blew off the peach and the pear, the
birds ate the cherry, and some bad
boys destroyed his apples. These
catastrophies made him feel blue, but
he persevered, and today he is enjoying the fruits of his perseverance.
It is reported from the coast that
Hon. Richard McBride, who was formerly premier of this province, will
leave for London shortly in order to
receive knighthood.
As The Sun goes to press today, it
is stated, on fairly reliable authority,
that the city couneil has, after a
twenty years' quest, succeeded in
engaging a competent city clerk.

The taking of census was completed
in every city of the Dominion today
The result of the work of the enumerators will be made public from Ottawa tomorrow morning. It is esti
mated that the population of the coun-
tiy will probably be 50,000,000. In
1911 it was 9,295,562, and in 1921
it had increased to 23,745,198. The
population of Orand Forks will probably be a few hundred in excess of
A conservatiue estimate of this
year's fruit crop in the Kettle valley
places it at two thousand carloads.
Arrangements are now being made to
run solid fruit trains this fall over
the Hudson Bay railway to Port
Churchill, from which point the fruit
will be shipped to all the large Euro
pean centres. Similar trains will be
despatched to Montreal, New York,
San Francisco and the City of Mexico.
Mr. and  Mrs.  Martin   Burrell   ar
rived   in   the city   today from Aus
tralia, and will visit for  a view dayi
with  friends   at   the  corner of Sun
avenue and 129th   street.    Mr.   Bur'
rell was a member of the Dominion
parliament in 1911, but owing to  his
antagontic views  on   tho  reciprocity
treaty, which   was   then   a   burning
question in the land, he wus defeated
fur re-election in 1912.    Being piqued I
at  llis  defeat, he emigrated   to   Aus-1
tralia, and now owns one of the lurg-1
est   sheep   ranches  in   that commonwealth.    Mr  Burrell is versatile.    Ini
this country he gained u high  reputation as au authority on fruit growing.
Jesoph Martin, whose candidature
for member of parliament from one of
the constituencies on Melville Island
has added zest to political life in the
middle north, was granted a live minutes' interview with the editor of The
Sun this morning. It had been rumored that Mr. Martin was in favor
of re-erecting a tariff wall between
Canada and the United States. His
explanation regarding his attitude on
this question was not entirely satis-
torv to the editor, and the electors
should qui/.z him further on this point.
Twenty year-' ago Mr. Martin was
called the stormy pet'al of polities.
If elected this fall he will probably
attempt to re-enact  his former mle.

Room  Where  Gathered Stage Qoodi
Are Kept Is a Queer Place.
The "property room" of a theatre
is tho old curiobity shop of the show
A reporter was recently taken bnck
of thc stage of the Grand in Toronto.
Thc ufternoon show was over—everybody homo to prepare for the evening.
Dark nnd dismal—not even a mouse
stirring. All lights were off and only
the dreary shiver oi the big tin thunder sheet could be heard ns manager
nnd reporter made their way through
thc long passageways that led down
under the. stage.
A property room Is where the
"props" are kept. To mnke it even
clearer, "props" are the articles use I
in mnking up a stage picture, with the
exception of the scenery. Kor Instance,
the kitchen scene of a rural drains
contains chairs, table, stove, a bucket
of water, piece of soap, towel, cupboard and dishes, etc., «tc.
All such articles are "propertied
nnd are handled by the property man
In many companies nearly every piece
of furniture down to the smallest arti
cic3 ate carried by the company, but
this is not the general rule, the thea-
tre being called upon to supply n
large part of requirements. For this
purpose a property department is
kept up, under the charge of a hous»
employe who knows by instinct where
to get the most unheard of articles
it the show requires them.
From a skull for Hamlet to nn automobile for a modern melodrama-
nothing is supposed to puzzle
Down in the property room of the
Grand are accumulated the bric-a brne
and furniture of twenty-five yeirs.
Little by little the department has
picked up its wares, an urn this
week, a curtain pole the week before,
a i, rden bench a month ago, and so
on. By the time a theatre is ten or
fifteen years old the property room
begins to assume the air of a combined junkshop and palace.
Across yonder stands a throne
chair in which many a Queen Gertrude has mimicked the sorrows of n
pefidious heart. A foot distant lies
a folded garden bench in which the
iover on many a moonlit stage ha'
prated of his undying affection. Here
is a water bottle used by the hungry
wanderer in the melodramatic desert,
there stands a papier-mache mummy
that stirred the horror of children in
the Egyptian cave of the mesmerist.
On the shelf lies a set of curtains behind which the lovely Desdemonn
slept while the painted Moor bellowed out his unrest so that the furthest
gallery boy might shake with terror.
Indeed—to depart from poetic fantasies, the great cellars loom up in
the murky light of an electric globe
as something very mysterious, very
sacred and full of horrible possibilities. Long lines of folded scenery lie
stacked on stands looking like the
sail room of an abandoned schooner.

There is just one cure for anaemia
—moro rich, red blood. Anaemia is
simply a bloodless, run down condition. Then the body becomes weak
from overwork, worry or illness,
an examination of the blood will
show it to be weak and watery. The
common symptoms are paleness' o'
lips, gums and cheeks, shortness of
breath and palpitation of the heart af-
ti'r the slightest "exertion, dull eyes
and n loss of appetite. Anaemia itself
is a dnngerous trouble nnd mny pass
into consumption. It can only be
cured by making the blood rich and
red, thereby enabling it to carry the
necessary nourishment to every part
of the body.
It is a proved fact that Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have cured thousands and thousands of cases of
anaemia. They are really intended to
make new, rich blood and are compounded in the most scientifiie manner with the finest ingredients for the
blood known to medical science.
These Pills nre not a cure-nil. They
nre intended to cure only those discuses that have their origin in poor,
watery blood, and starved, weakened
nerves, nnd the record of their success
in doing this is their constantly increasing popularity in every pnrt of
the world.
Mrs. E. Colton, Golden, B.C., says:
—"As a matter of duty I wish to say
a word in praise of. Dr. Willinms'
Pink Pills for whnt they have done
for my daughters, one 18 and the
other 18 yeurs of age. Both were pale
aud bloodless nnd suffered from ninny
of the symptoms of anaemia. They
would tire easily, suffered from frequent headaches, were ensily discouraged, and often fretful. 1 saw in our
home pnper the story of a young girl
who hnd similarly suffered nnd wns
cured through thc use of Dr. Willinms' Pink Pills. I bought three
boxes of tbe Pills nnd my daughters
startetl to tnke them. Before they
were done they begnn to feel better
nnd look bettor, and I got a half
dozen more boxes, nnd by the time
these were used, they were enjoying
the best of health, with rosy cheeks
nnd not like the same girls nt all. I
also gave the Pills to my little l)6y
who had rheumatism, and they completely cured him."

Eczema Worse

His Right to Drive In Rotten Row-
Privilege Bestowed by Charles II.
The Duke of St. Albans, due to a
freak on the part of Charles II., his
ancestor, is the only man in the
British empire, with the exception
of the King, who has the riuht to
drive on the famous Rotten Row of
Hyde Park.
The Dukes of St. Albans are descendants of Charles II. and Nell
Gwynne, the famous orange girl. The
"Merrie Monarch," while he had bestowed honors upon his natural children by Lucy Walters, Louise de
Querounilles and the Duchess ol
Cleveland, absolutely refused to do
anything for his son by the famous

high price of bacon, and wondered
why the dealers continued to make it
more expensive. Thn clerk paused a
moment, wiped his brow and guve the
following surprising explanation.
"It's a psychological reason—that's
what I thinks," he said "These
men who run the pork businesses
are getting rich by turning hog into
bacon. Somewhere in the process the
nature of the hog disappears and nothing is left but the plain bacon.
Where does the nature of the hog go
to, eh? Why, I think is goes into thc
people  who  run  the businesses."
Thc lady departed with tho impression that she was not the only person with a grievance; the clerk had
evidently been asking fer a raise in
A Disgusted Lover.
When James IV. of Scotland went
to London to propose for the hand of
Margaret, the daughter of Henry VII.,
he was somewhat disgucstcd to tind
her at their first meeting so busily engaged in a game of cards that she was
scarcely able to give him an) a. um-
itching nor to the tendency of these
ailments to sproad over the entire
body.   The essential point is how to
bring about cure, nnd if you have
been reading the cures reported from
time to time 'in this paper you will
already know that there is nothing
like Dr. Chase's Ointment ns a cure
for enema, snlt rheum, psorinsis nnd
every form of itching skin disease.
This ointment stops the itching
almost ns soon as applied, lessens the
discharge from the visicles or blisters, cleans out the morbid growth
and stimulates the process of henling.
Becnuse other treatments have failed, you may feel discouraged. But
in I)r. Chase's Ointment there is a
cure for you. We know this becnuse
of the reports we hnve received from
so many thousands of cases.

The lad in later years inherited
much of his mother's good looks and
merry wit and became a great favorite of his fnther; so much so that before the king died he had granted
the young fellow, along with other
honors, estates, and pensions, the
hereditary oflice of lord high falconer of England and the right of driving down Rotten Row, a right which
hns been enjoyed by the Duke of St.
Albans ever since.
In connection with this an amusing incident occurred one afternoon |
at the Turf Club   of   London.    The
queer prerogative of the Duke of St.
Albans  was   being   discussed   when
Admiral  Lord  Charles   Beresford of-1
fered to wager that he would manage i
to drive up   and   down Rotten Row
the following day without being molested or interfered with in any way.)
As all present were aware of the
lookout kept by the park police lo
prevent wheeled traffics there his
bet wus readily taken. He left them,
arranging that they should be at a
certain point of the walk bordering
the Row about noon. After waiting
there for some time beyond the appointed hour looking in vain for Lord
Charles, they were just about to take
their departure, congrntulnting themselves on having won the wager,
when the oilskin-clad driver of a
watering cart that hnd passed two
or three times up nnd down the Row
before their very eyes, laying the
dust, suddenly raised his oilskin
cap and jeered at them to the effect

Sir Q.'s Quaint Request.
Sir A. T. Quiller-Couch. the novelist, who will prnhahlv be known lo
his intimates ns "Sir Q.," once found
himself seated at a millionaire's
table. The master nf millions was
not lacking in hrnggnducin, and his
guests were quickly appraised of the
cost of each expensive dish. Particularly, did he dwell on sopie
beautiful grapes, each grape bigger
than a good-sized plum, and each
bunch a foot long. Some of the guests
ate charily, and "Q.." extending hia
phite. remarked, "Would you mind
cutting mc off ahout eight shillings'
worth,  please?"
The new knight, who has immortalized Fowey, near Cornwall, where
he lives, under the name of "Troy
Town," was once a classical lecturer
ut Trinity. The long vacation came,
and time hung heavily, so he wrote
"Dead Man's Rock," his first novel,
and the first publisher to whom he
offered it accepted it. His daily task
never exceeds 1,000 words a day, and
he often writes no more than 150.

Colonel Aucblncloss of tbe United

He waa In tbe artillery, and a colon!)
ot artillery tn tbe regular army Is a
very big man. Tben. too. Colonel Aucblncloss commanded a big fort on tbe
Atlantic coast, and tbat made bim a
bigger man still. Outside tbe fort waa
a collection of hotels used by persons
from all over tbe United States as
recreation resorts, all of whom looked
np to tbe colonel commanding tbe tort
as a sovereign.
One day wben dress parade was taking place Inside tbe fort, witnessed by
flocks ot persons from tbe hotels out-
side-principally.young ladles—tbe colonel left bla office to go to bla domestic
quarters. As be was passing tbe line
tbe band "beat off," marching before

ceremony of dress parade for ao Indefinitely long period.
Lieutenant Bob Phillips waa adjutant of tbe post. Now. tbe adjutant la
an Important man at all military ceremonies, especiully dress parade. Aa
Colonel Aucblncloss passed Lieutenant
Phillips wus standing. Use all the rest,
atlff as a ramrod, while Ibe band was
marching back and forth. , Lieutenant
Phillips waa suffering at tbe time from
a aore spot on tbe tip of bla nose, lt
to happened tbat a buugry fly lit on
the organ and. finding such sustenance
In tbe sore spot as especially aulted
Ita taste, began to pull lustily.
There are nerves In noses, especially on tbe under side. The agony endured by tbe adjutant waa excruciating. Nevertheless, owing lo the Important part be took In the military
ceremony he was tbe last man on the
ground wbo should Infringe upon military discipline by raising bis hand to
■boo away tbe fly. Such a breach of
uniformity would be especially noticeable In every one and tf made by tbe
adjutant would constitute a frightful
•sample to the rest of tbe corps on
Furthermore, It wu expected tbat
•very man would be at "eyea front"
Phillips beld bla eyea In tbat position
rigidly. Consequently he did not are
the approach of bla commander ou bla
right Just before tbe colonel came
within bis range of vision Phillips' ar
ony had paaaed tbe limit of human
endurance, and bla band went up to
brush off the fly.
Colonel Aucblncloss stopped, cast a
terrible glance at tbe transgressor and
paaaed on. Phillip* aaw bim and knew
that be waa doomed. Be waa tben
preparing for examination for bla promotion to be captain and felt nre that
each a flagrant breach ot discipline as
raising a band to brush a fly from a
aore spot on bis nose would be a great
detriment to bla attalplng the rank to
whicb be aspired.
The next day Phillips waa obliged
to read oo parade an order relieving
himself of tbe duties of adjutant ot
the post and appointing another In hla
place. After the ceremony be went to
hla quarters wishing that he might be
permitted to challenge tbe colonel and
run bim through to the hilt Persona
Buffer by their mistakes, their misfortunes, and Injustice. It la only in tha
laat of tbese caaea tbat rebellion ean
possibly be advisable, and even then
to grin and bear It la usually the neat
policy.   Lieutenant PhUUps wu la a
obliged to do this, but a spirit
ot animosity toward the colonel was
engendered ln htm wbich promised to
burst into a flame and bring on. an
army scandal
Now. It happened that Colonel Au-
chlncloss, who. notwithstanding his
age, wu a bachelor, and Lieutenant
Phillips unknown to eacb other had intentions wltb regard to a young lady
wbo was stopping at one of tbe hotels
outside the military reservation. What
a fly had started a woman developed.
Miss Marjory Dressier was much flattered at the attentions ot tbe mighty
commander and much pleased wltb
tboae of hla subordinate. As soon an
tt became evident to both officers that
tbey were rivals the tire burned hotter ln the breast of tbe younger, and
tbe elder drew a tighter rein In bis
official intercourse wltb bis Inferior.
Tben came Lieutenant Phillips' examination for promotion, und, owing
partly to bis being absorbed by love
rather tban his studies and partly
from tbe breach of discipline for which
bis colonel bad reduced bim from tbe
position of adjutant be was denied a
cuptaln'a commission.
The young mun. conceiving thut this
deprivation was tbe result of tbe colonel's animosity toward bim, preferred
charges against bim tor tyranulcal
Tbe commander of the department
ln wblcb all this happened was an
uncle of Miss Marjory Dressier. Bis
official position prevented bis expressing any opinion lu tbe matter, but bis
wife, not being similarly handicapped,
took a secret part In the proceedings.
Miss Dressier was her sister's child,
and the young lady. Inasmuch as she
wus ln doubt whether sbe would marry the colonel or the lieutenant, would

defendant the next towurd tbe plain-
tig. The former being a prominent
artillery officer, tbat arm of the service took great Interest In tbe trial,
aome sldlug wltb and some against
their comrade of the big guns.
Of course the officers' fumllles took
greut Interest In the trial, aud, as there
Is Intercourse between tbe different
corps, the trouble spread to the Infantry, cavalry and tbe stuff corps.
Thus by tbe time tbe court wus ready
to try tbe case tbe whole army was
The members assembled lu full uniform. Tbe first proceeding wus lbe
reading of tbe charge, which was tyranny, and the specifications, which
were very numerous. Tbe first specification begun thus:
"ln this, that on or about tbe — tb

. and painfully tender"-
At tbis point tbe president ot tbe

thai ibis luiideut ot a fly lighting on
tbe udjutunt's uow was the beginning
of the trouble, whereupon li«* wus sut
tailed, and tbe reading proceeded.
Tbere waa one mutter that could not
be Introduced Into tbe trial. Thut was
tbe rivalry between plaintiff and defendant for the bund of Miss Dressier.
But everybody kuew tbat tbis had
added fuel to tbe Same till the fly
that bad lighted on tbe adjutant's nose
hud been put entirely In ibe buck
ground. Wben tbe triul began and all
tbrough tbe army tbe question was
asked. "What's this rumpus between
Colonel Aucblncloss and Phillips'!"* the
reply was Invariably. "Why, you see,
a fly lit on Phillips' nose wben be was
on dress parade," etc. But after
awhile when tbe question waa aaked
the reply would be. "No one knows,
but tf you want to get at the bottom
of tbe matter you'll bave to look for
a woman tn tbe case."
It wu found necessary to bring witnesses lat government extiensei from
the uttermost points of tbe world, and
wben a witness waa summoned It waa
necessary to wait tor hla or ber arrival, so tbe cote dragged and was
very expensive till at last It was
found necessary lo ask congress for a

Outwitted His Critics.
A minister living in an Aberdeenshire count town had preached a sermon which a skipper, one ol his parishioners who traded to London,
thought very like one which he. had
read to hit. family the Sunday beiore
from a volume ol sermons which he
had purchased in London.
On the Sunday following he. with
two brother skippers, took the book
to church to ascertain the correctness
of the suspicion. The minister in
due time gave out a text which, true
enough, the skipper found in the index of his book and pointed out to
his friends.
The minister then proceeded with
the sermon, going on word for word
with the sermon book for a sentence
or two, which greatly excited the
"skipper, who, with a crony on each
side, kept tracing the words in his
book after the minister and saying,
"See till him; see till him."
The minister, who used himself to
tell the story, aj_id:
"I lookit iloun and saw what they
were at, so I turned ower twa leaves
at ance, an' they never clappit saut
upo' my tail after that."
New Vegetable la Sought.
English horticulturists are turning
attention to the possibility of finding
a new vegetable in the ground nut,
which, though ot excellent flavor and
wholesome for food, is disregarded by
all but "pigs and children."
Ground nuta. otherwise called "jar
nuts" or "earth chestunts," have
been from time immemorial a favorite delicacy with village boys, who
are now generally barred from searching for them in the English woods,
where they grew best, by killjoy
gamekeepers. In Gerarde's time their
merits were well known, and they
grew profusely "almost everywhere"

Burns-Jonas' Joke.
Of Burne-Jones and William Morris
Mr. J. Corny ns Carr relates an arousing story.   Morris had at one time a
horror of growing  stout.    The  poet 1
went to bed at a Thames side inn one '
night, and Burne-Jones played a trick
on him, taking a section out ot his I
waistcoat and  sewing the  remnants
together. The next inorni: i he watched tho terror and consternation with
which Morris tried to make the garment meet around his waist.   It was
not until the smothered laughter of
the painter reached Moris' ears that
the poet wu relieved from his anxiety.

regarding the most satisfactory destination for every consignment which

of these associations, however, to conduct their business in such a wny that

and tbe best organized associations are

of fastening battery and roll terminal

of tbe clock move and tben tighten up

otber way Ihe nut would tend to untwist It and It would slip under the

ables the consumer to obtain fresb
products, as tbey are shipped direct
from the point of production to tbe
place of consumption. Tbe plan carries other benefits which ure of great
moment to tbe producer. He Is enabled
to sell In carload lots ut shipping point,
thus saving to himself the cost of transportation, whicli ranges from ? to 15
per cent of the gross selling price. The
exchange secures n much wider distribution of the crop, with tbe result
tbat overstocked markets are much
less likely than under the consignment
system. Transportation companies provide better service, and claims are
more promptly settled through the exchange than In lhe case of Individuals.
This plan enables the producer to be
his own salesman. It transfers the
