A little excitement was created in
the city on Tuesday morning by tbe
visit of a United States homestead
inspector. According to bis statement, settlers on the' other side
the line have violated the law
in taking up pre-emptions, clearing
tbe land of tbe timber, disposing of
tbe wood, ties and sawlogs, and tben
abandoning their holdings. A
large quantity of wood, ties and sawlogs haB been purchased by sawmill
men, railways and wood dealers.
Tbe inspector claimed to bave tbe
right to come over'here and collect
for the wood, aB the parties who had
. cut and sold it in violation of the
law were irresponsible. It is stated
that one dealer effected a cash settlement with tbe inspector. This
appears to be a complicated case,
and as The Sun's international barrister is spending hie vacation in
Europe at present, an opinion as to
tbe legality of the points involved is
withheld; but it appears strange tbat
after a person purchases,pays for and
imports an article in good faith,
other parties should have the power
to come along and demand a second

In Order to Secure Water
This Tear, Plants Mast
Be Purchased Now
The meeting of irrigationists in
the city hall on Monday evening,
called for the purpose of hearing the
result of the conference between the
committee appointed at the previous
meeting and the local representative
of the Cascade Water Power & Light
company regarding a modification of
some of the clauses of the power
contract, was not very largely attended, owing doubtless to the short
notice given. Mr. Cooper explained
the concessions the company was
willing to grant, which constituted
about all the business transacted.
All of those present expressed themselves as being in favor of ordering
the pumping plants at once, before
the power contract is signed, in order to secure irrigation this season.
As the machinery companies require eight weeks from the receipt of
the order until shipment iB made,
tbe importance of this step being
taken can readily be realized.
Basket Social
The basket social held at the residence of Mr. and Mre. Hodgson son
Tuesday evening, the 21st inst., waa
in every way a great success. The
guessing contest created a good deal
of interest. The credit for this inspiring feature belongs to F. E. and
Mrs. Lathe, who spared no pains to
make it attractive to those present.
A short but very acceptable musical
program followed, all the numbers
being well received. Mr. Swain then
took the auction block and offered,
one by one, more than forty baskets
of the choicest viands, which were
eagerly purchased by the gentlemen
present. Mrs. Tuttle prepared an
appetizing cup of coffee, and when
all the baskets were sold, ladies nnd
gentlemen congregated in little
groups and closetl a most enjoyable
evening in happy fellowship and
with tasty refreshments. Mrs. Hodgson is deserving of the highest praise
for the excellent arrangements made
for lhe comfort of her guests, and
for the delicious candy made by her
'and esgerly purchased by the visitors. The proceeds were presented
to the Methodist church of this city.

In The Lilt.
Gurdon looked out from the shelter
of the great portico to see the sheets
of rain roaring on the pavement.
Nothing but the steady plash of the
raindrops as they rattled on the pavements. To walk half a mile on such
a night meant getting wet through;
and Gurdon somewhat ruefully regarded his thin slippers and his light
dust overcoat. Hall a dozen times
did the night porter blow his whistle,
but no sign of a cab could be seen.
"We sha'n't get one to-night," Venner said. "They are all engaged.
There is only one thing for it—you
must take a room here, and stay till
the morning. I've no doubt 1 can
lit you up in the way of pyjamas and
nil the rest of it."
Gurdon fell in readily enough with
the suggestion. Indeed, there was
nothing else for it. He took his number antl key from the sleepy clerk
in the office, nnd made his way upstairs to Venner's bedroom.
"I'll just have one cigarette before
I turn in," he said. "It seems as if
Fate had ordained it thnt, I am to
keep in close touch with the leading
characters of the mystery, Hy the
way, we never took the trouble to
find out who the handsome cripple
"That is very easily done in the
morning," Venner replied. "A striking personality like that is not soon
lost sight of. Besides, he has doubtless been here before, for, if you will
recollect, his attendants took him to
the right table as if it had been ordered before hand. And now, if you
don't mind, I'll turn in—not that I
expect to sleep much after an excit-
ing evening like this. Good night,
old fellow."
Gurdon went tut to his own room,
where he slowly undressed and sat
thinking the whole thing out on the
edge ol his bed. Perhaps he was suffering from the same suppressed excitement which nt that moment wns
keeping Venner awake, for he felt
not the slightest disposition to turn
in. Usually he wes a sound sleeper;
but this night seemed likely to prove
an exception to the rule.
An hour passed, nnd Gordon was
still sitting there, asking himself
whether it would not be better to go
to bed nnd compel sleep lo come to
him. Impatiently he flicked out his
light and laid his head resolutely on
the pillow.
But it was all in vain—sleep was
out of the question. The room was
not altogether in darkness, either; for
the sleeping apartments on that landing had been arranged back to back
with a large open ventilator between
them. Through this ventilator came
a stream of light; evidently the occupant of the adjoining room hnd not
yet retired. The light worried Gur-
don; he asked himself irritably why
his neighbor should be permitted to
annoy him in this way. A moment or
two later the sound of suppressed
voices came through the ventilator,
followed by the noise of a heavy fall.
At any ordinary time Gurdon would
have thought nothing of this, but his
imagination was aflame now; his
mind was full of hidden mysteries.
It seemed to him thnt something sinister and underhand waa going on in
the next room.
Usually, no one would identify the
Grand Empire Hotel with crima and
intrigue; but thnt did not deter Gurdon from rising from his bed and
making a determined efloit lo see
through thc ventilator into the adjoining room. It wns not an easy
matter, but by dint of balancing two
chairs one on top of the other the
thing wns nccomplished. Very cnu
liously Gurtlon pushed back the glass
slide and looked through. So far as
he could see, tliere was nothing to
justify nny suspicion. The room was
absolutely empty, though it was brilliantly lighted; nnd for a moment
Gurdon felt nshnmed of his suspicions, antl turned nwnv, half determined to try nntl sleep. It was at
that instnnt thnt he noticed something out ol the common. To hiB
quickened ear there enme a sound unmistakably like a snore, and pushing
his body hnlf through the ventilator,
he managed to mnke out the bed in
the.next room. On it lay the body
ol a boy in uniform, unmistakably a
messenger boy nr a hotel attendant
of that kind. Fnr Gurdon could see
the hotel name embroidered in gold
letters on his collnr.
Perhaps there was nothing so very
mysterious in this, except that the
lad was lying on the bed fully dressed, even in his boots. It was a luxurious room; not nt nil the class of
apartment to which the hotel management would relegate one of their mes-
senger boys, nor wns it possible thnt
the. Ind had had the temerity to go
into the vacnnt room nnd sleep.
"Something wrong hire." Gnrt'on
muttered, "Hung me if I don't get
through tiie ventilator and seo what
W. N. U., No. 133.
it i;."
It was no difficult matter for an
athlete like Gurdon to push his way
through and drop on the bed on the
other side. Then he shook the form
of the slumbering lad without reward.
The boy seemed to be plunged in a
sleep almost like death. As Gurdon
turned him over, he noticed on the
other side of the lad's collar the single word "Lift." It began to dawn upon Gurdon exactly what hnd happened. In large hotels like the Grand
Empire there is no fixed period when
the lift is suspended, and consequently, it hns attendants day and night.
For some reason, this boy had evidently heen drugged and carried into
the room where he now lay. There
was no doubt whatever about it, for
it was impossible to shake the latl
into the slightest semblance of life.
Gurdon cross >d to the dbor, untl
found, not to his surprise, that it wus
locked. His flrst impulse wos to return to his own room nnd call the
night porter: but a strange, wild iden
hnd com? into his mind, antl he re
frained from doing so. It occurred
to him that perhaps Mark Fenwick
or the handsome cripple had hud a
hand in this outrage.
"I'll wait a bit," Gurdon told himself. "It is just possible thnt my key
will fit this door. Anyway, it is
worth trying."
Gurdon made his way back to his
own room again, to return a minute
of two later with his key. To his
great delight the do^r opened, and
he stood in a further corridor, close
to the cage in which the lift worked
noiselessly up nnd down.
It was absolutely quiet there, an
thnt anybody standing there would
have been able to carry out any operation of an unlawful kind without
observation. Gurdon stood their,
looking down the lift shaft, until he
sow that the cage was once more beginning to ascend. It came up slowly
ond smoothly without the least noise,
until it was leyel with the flior on
which Gurdon was standing. It vas
one of the open kind of lifts, so thnt
he could see inside quite clearly. To
till practical purposes, the lift was
empty, save for the presence of one
man, who lay unconscious on the
floor. The cage was ascending so leisurely that Gurdon was in a position
to make quite a close examination of
the figure before the whole structure
had risen to the next floor. It did
not need a second glance to tell Gurdon that the mnn in the cage was
suffering from the same which had
placed the boy assistant beyond all
power of interfering.
"Now, what does nil this mean?"
Gurdon muttered. "Who iB there on
the floor above who is interested in
getting these two people out of the
way? What do they wnnt to bring
up or send down which it is not snfe
to dispose of by the ordinary means?
I think I'll wait and see. No sleep
for me to-night."
The lift vanished in the same silent
way. It hung overhead for some little
time, and once more appeared m
sight, this time absolutely empty,
save for a small square box with iron
bands at the corners, which lay upon
the floor. As the cage descended
Gurdon suddenly made up his mind
what to do. He sprang lightly on to
the top of the foiling coge and grasped the rops with both hands. A moment later and he was descending in
the darkness.
As. far as he could judge, the lift
went absolutely down to the bine
ment, where, for the time being, it
remained. There was a warm, damp
smell in the air, suggestive of fungus,
whereby Gurdon knew that he must
be in the vaults beneath the hotel.
As his eyes became accustomed tt;
the gloom, he could make out just in
front of him a circular patch of light,
which evidently was a coal chute.
He had no need to wait now for the
full development of the adventure.
He could hear whispered voices and
the clang of metal, as if somebody
had opened the door of the lift. One
of the voices he failed to understand,
but with a thrill he recogniied the
fact that the speaker was talking in
either Spanish or Portuguese. Instantly it flashed into his mind that
this was the language most familiar
to the man who called himself Mark
Fenwick. Beyond doubt he was quite
right, when he identified this last
development with the actors in the
dramatic events cailier in the evening.
"Now, don't be long about it," n
hoarse voice whispered. "There ore
two more coses to send up, and two
more to come down here. Hns that
von come olong, or shall we have to
wait until morning?"
"The van is there right onout.li,''
another hoarse voice answered. "We
have got the stuff out on the pavement. Let's have that last lot here,
and get it up at once."
Gurdon could hear the sound of
labored breathing as if the unseen
man was struggling with some heavy
burden. Presently some square object was deposited on the floor of the
lift. It slipped from some one's
hands, and dropped with a heavy
thud thnt caused the lift to vibrate
like a thing of life.
"Clumsy fool," n voice muttered.
"You might hnve dropped that on my
foot. What did you want to let go
"I couldn't help it," another voi"e
grumbled. "I didn't know it was
half so hea'y. Besides, the r.ne
"Oh, ate you going to be there 'ill
night?"—another voice with n suggestion of o foreign accent in it, asked
impntiently. "Don't forget you huve
got to bring the man down yet, nnd
see thnt the boy is taken to his place.
Now. un with it."
Standing there, holding on  to Ihe
rope and quivering with excitement,
Gurdon wondered what was going to
happen next. Once more he felt him,
self rising, and an instant later he
was in tlie light again. He waited till
the lift had reached his own floor;
then he jumped quickly down, tat
ing care as he went to note the box
which lay on the floor of the lift. A
corner of it had been split open by
the heavy jar, and some shinny ma-
terial like sand lay in a little heap,
glittering in the rays of the electric
Gurdon stood there panting for a
moment, and rather at a loss to know
what to do. next. Once more the lift
came down, this time with two boxes
of a smaller siie. They vanished; and
as the lift rose once again, Gurdon
had barely time to hide himself behind the bedroom door, and thus escape the observation of two men who
now occupied the cage. He just
caught a fleeting glimpse of them,
nntl saw thot one was an absolute
stranger, but he felt his heart beating slightly faster as he recognised
in the other the now familiar form of
Mark Fenwick. The mystery was beginning to unfold itself.
"Thnt wns a close thing," Gurdon
muttered as he wiped his hot face. "I
think I had better go back to my
own room and wait developments.
One can't be too careful."
The lift-boy was still sleeping
soundly on the bed; but his features
were twitching now, as if already the
drug was beginning to lose its effect.
At least, so Gurdon shrewdly thought,
nnd subsequently events proved that
he was not far wrong. He was standing in his own room now, waiting by
the ventilator, when he heard the
sound of footsteps on the other side
of the wall. Two men hnd entered
the room, nnd by taking a little risk,
Gurdon could see that they were examining the unconscious boy coolly
and critically.

The traveling on the first railroad
ln England was not very comfortable undoubtedly. The coaches were
at first only coupled with chains, as
wagons are now, so that they jerked
the unfortunate passengers nearly off
their seats at starting and clashed
violently against each other when the
driver put on his brake. When fairly in motion, if the speed was any
but the slowest, the very short wheel
base produced a pitching action so
trying that it the journey had not
been a short one it would have seriously affected the popularity of the
railway as a means of passenger
Coins Turned to Snakes.
A money trick of Hindu jugglers
invariably causes great amusement to
every one who sees it except the victim of the joke. The juggler takes
three copper coins and places them
in the palm of some one in the group
of spectators, bidding him hold them,
as tightly es he can. By and by it
seems to the holder of the coins that
they aro swelling and growing hot.
They seem to be moving about. He
holds his hand closed as long as he
can and then opens it, always with
a gasp of fright; for there wriggling
about are three tiny snakes.

Keep Out
An invention has been completed
for what many 'thought to be impossible, namely, an indicator to reveal
the number of the 'phone where the
receiver is taken down while a conversation is taking place. Subscribers
to rural 'phones know that there are
always one or two people that are
always interested in others people's
business and frequently their presence may be known by the click of
the receiver as it is taken from the
holder. This indication will not only
indicate when a third person comes
on the line, but when they go off.

Toronto, Canada.—"I shall endeavor

began taking Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. I scarcely knew
wbat it was to be well. 1 had awful

I and usually before
I my monthly periods
II suffered terribly
land had to go to

I to walk across the

I so tad. I doctored
I for a long time, but
I the doctor's treat-
1 ment did not do me
1 any good. I gave up
I all hopes of ever
'being well  again
until one dar my husband saw the Com-
Sound advertised in the paper. He
ecided to get me a bottle, and I am
thankful he did. I had not taken one
bottle before I began to feel better,
and I kept on taking it until now I am
a different woman. It also helped me
during maternity and childbirth. I
can thoroughly recommend your Vegetable Compound to any woman who
is afflicted with female troubles."—

Sometimes a bad burn, a deep cut,
or; some similar injury sets up a more
permanent injury, in the form ot an
open discharging sore. In such cases
Zam-Buk will be found of unequalled
Mr. J. Nixon, of 901 William Ave.,
Winnipeg, a blacksmith at the C.P.R.
shops, had his foot badly burned by
ome molten metal falling upon it.
He says: "The burn was a very bad
one, and after the first few days it
left an open sore, which showed marked signs of blood-poisoning. lt discharged freely and caused me terrible agony. For three weeks I suffered acutely and could get no ease.
At last I obtained a preparation from
the doctor, which seemed to stop the
discharging and made me quite hopeful, but finally the wound became as
bad as ever.
"I was then advised to use Znm-
Buk, and from the first application
the balm gave me relief. The inflammation was thoroughly checked, and
the poisonous matter cleared away
in a very short time after beginning
with Zam-Buk. Healing then began
and in less than two weeks the
wound was thoroughly healed."
One of the main lessons of this case
lies right here—try Zam-Buk first for
any injury, sore, skin disease cr
wound. It is equally good for piles,
blootlt poisoning, festering wounds,
chaps, cold sores, children's erup
tions, scalp sores, varicose ulcers,
chilblains, etc. All druggists and
stores sell at 50c. box or post free
from Zam-Buk Co., Toronto, upon receipt of price. You are warned
against harmful substitutes and inferior preparations, which yield a
bigger margin of profit and are sometimes pushed as being "just as good.'
Nothing is just as good.

Value of Laughter
A famous doctor - once said, "Encourage your child tp be merry and
to laugh aloud; a good, hearty laugh
expands the chest and makes the
blood bound merrily along. Commend
me to a good laugh—not to a little,
sniggling laugh, but to one that will
sound right through the house; it
will not only do your child good, but
will be a benefit to all who hear,
and be an important means of driving the blues away from a dwelling.
Merriment is very catching and
spreads in a remarkable manner, few
being able to resist the contagion.
A hearty laugh is delightful harmony,
indeed, it is the best of all music."

Rock Mills, Grey Co., Ont. (Special)—"I must say Dodd's Kidney
Pills worked wonders in my case,"
says Mrs. Stephen Roy of this place.
"I suffered with inflammatory Rheumatism in my right arm, and though
I tried several remedies the swelling
increased and was very painful. My
hands and limbs were also badly
"I got a doctor and he helped me,
but the swelling never entirely left
He said it was because my heart was
weak. Then I decided to try Dodd's
Kidney Pills and, as I said before,
they worked wonders."
Rheumatism of any kind is caused
by disordered Kidneys failing to
strain the uric acid out of the blood.
Dodd's Kidney Pills cure it by curing the Kidneys. They also cure the
weak heart by making pure blood and
lessening that organ's work of propelling the blood through the body.
Dodd's Kidney Pills only cure the
Kidneys, but they always do that.
And with healthy Kidneys you can't
have Rheumatism, Lumbago, Heart
Disease, Dropsy or Bright's Disease.

Antl in the ages yet to come
It will be praised hy all.
I've studied deep of human life;

And all because I want to draw
Them with my sharpened pen.
I want to sway the plastic worltl
By thoughts nntl words sublime;
Antl try to make it better, too,
And will—when 1 get time.
Alns!   The yenrs have come and gone,
And each succeeding tiny
Has added cares ulreatly wrought,
And time has slipped away.
The mastcrnicce I lain would write,
I fear will be but rhyme;
Because the more of years I live
The less I have of time.

At the risk of being considered
officious, The Sun urges the ranch-
ers who intend to install irrigation
plants this spring to make all possible haste. The subject has been
thoroughly discussed, and the time
when the wuter will be needed is
rapidly approaching. Kven if ihe
plants are ordered tomorrow, it will
be the middie of June before they
can be put in operation. The promoters and committees have worked
very hard to bring this enterprise to
an actuality, and it would be an injustice to them, as well as a Bevere
setback to the vulley, if their labors
should count for naught.

be overlooked ngain. We really cannot recall any particular service
that the Hon. Richard has rendered

to a title any more than the Hon.
Nap. Bowser. And it would be a
terrible waste of energy to stretch
his name out to Sir "Napoleon"
Sir William Van Horn* has

If the reciprocity treaty will raise
the price of our fruit lands to as
high a figure as is obtained fnr the
land on whicli thc cheap American
fruit is grown, it will at least create
n few more capitalists in this valley.
If it docs, it must naturally follow thnt the rancher will rcceivo
more fur his products, because it is
a conceded fuel that land is high

6 Year Old Girl Cured of
Kidney Trouble
Mrs. Alex Moore, of James" St.,
Oxford, N.S., says: "Booth's Kidney
Pills cured our little daughter, Chris
tina, aged six years, of many symptoms of kidney weakness. She complained of a sore back, the kidney secretions wore frequent and uncontrollable, especially at uight. Her stomach was weak and her appetite poor.
This caused her to lu.ve frequent
headaches, and the least exertion
would tire her.
I A'e had tried
Inany remedies,
I iut she clitl not
■improve. Finally
Iwe learned of
|l3ooth's Kidney
and procured a box. In a
short time she was
well and does not now complain about
her back, the kidney secretions huve
become normal, and she plays around
the house with uo apparent fatigue

At a recent meeting of the executive of the British Columbia Poultry
association, held in tbe offices of the
live stock branch, department of
agriculture, the association approved
of tbe action of the government in
forwarding the co-operative movement in marketing poultry pro
ducts. It was also the consensus o
the meeting that the necessity of. i
government undertaking demonstration work in poultry products be
further urged.
Considerable discussion followed
on methods of scoring eggs in egg
exhibits at poultry shows and agricultural fairs. The following score
card for judging eggs was adopted:
1. Freshness  30
2. Quality of yolk  10

In connection with the judging of
eggs at poultry shows and agricultural exhibitions the following resolution wa-; adopted: Tbat two eggs
in each dozen shall be broken by tbe
judge in judging.
It was further resolved that this
system of scoring be forwarded lo all
secretaries of agricultural and poultry associations, and it was recommended that this standard, as adop
ted by the British Columbia Poultry
association, be adopted by the agricultural and poultry associations
throughout the province,
Discussion followed on methods of
improving the situation in regard to
the marketing of fresh eggs in British Columbia. It was finally resolved, tbat the resolution which
was adopted by the executive in its
meeting of October 27 and 28, 1910,
regarding the stamping of eggs for
sale, be forwarded to the Dominion
government, viz: That the prevailing custom wben selling eggs of misrepresenting to the purchaser the
quality by selling packed and cold
•storage eggs as "strictly fresh" is
detrimental to the consumer and the
producer, therefore the British Columbia Poultry association respect
fully beg of the government of the
Dominion of Canada that if legislation is possible lhat such be enacted,
and this association would suggest
that the producer, when selling eggs
in the public market or to a dealer
as "fresh eggs," be compelled to
stamp each egg with his name and
date of laying oi Baid egg, and that
any producer or dealer who sells
eggs not so marked as "fresh eggs"
be liable to a Hue of nut lens than
$1 nortxeeeding 850 and costs for
each offense.
A resolution was adopted that at
all locil poultry shows held in the
province, that all prizes and specials,

"I wonder," growled the Circassian
beauty, "why the manager always
comes to see me when he is drunk."
"Probably thinks you're a snake
charmer," chortled the ossified man.
No doubt or question as to tht healing power ol
To people who have used internal
treatment in an effort to cure eczema
it is almost beyond belief what benefit can be obtained by a few applications of this soothing, healing ointment.
It is seldom that the cause of eczema can be determined but one
thing is certain, the itching must be
stopped and the sores healed up.
These results are secured by the
use of Dr. A. W. Chase's Ointment.
The itching is relieved almost instant,
ly, nnd you will be surprised at the
healing which will take place overnight.
A little patience and persistent
treatment with. Dr. Chase's Ointment
will give you more practical and definite results than a whole lot of dosing with internnl medicines. You can
see how the Ointment henls. The
other is guesswork.
Mr. Geo. Peterson, South Bay, Ont.,
writes:—"I wish to communicate to
you the great benefit I received from
using Dr. A. W, Chase's Ointment.
For years I sufforftd with a great skin
disease on my head, a sort of eczema.
I tried four doctors, giving eaoh a
fair trial, but got no better. In fact
the disease spread to my left arm.
"1 saw Dr. Chase's Ointment advertised and began using it. Persistent
use of this treatment has entirely
cured me, and I give you a statement
of my case with pleasure, as I hope
thereby to induce some other sufferer
to try the same Dr. Chase's Ointment."
Because this ointment has made
its world,-wide reputation by curing
the1 most severe and longstanding
cases of eczema and piles is no reason you should overlook its scores of
uss3 in the relief of itching and irritation of the skin.

A Common and Dangerous
Trouble—Tou Must Enrich the Blood to
Escape Danger
Anaemia is simply a lack of blood.
It is one of the most common and at
the same time most dungerous diseases with which growing girls sutler.
It is common because the blood so
often becomes impoverished during
development, when girls are too fre-
cfuently allowed to over-study, overwork and suffer from a lack of exercise. It is dangerous because of the
stealthiness of its approach, often
being well developed before its presence is recognized, and because of its
tendency to grow so steadily worse,
if not promptly checked, that it may
run into consumption.
The value of the tonic treatment
with Dr. Williams' Pink Pills should
be known to every mother in the
land. These Pills make new, rich
blood, tone the organs and nerves
bring a glow of health to pate, sallow cheeks, and drive away the
weakness, headaches, faintness, heart
palpitation and loss of energy so noticeable in young girls who are suffering from anaemia. To all such
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are an actual life saver. Miss Mabel McTav-
ish, Prince Albert, Sask., says: "In
my case I can only say that life had
lost its magic: all work was a trial;
and even pleasure only a task. When
I went up a flight of stairs I was
ready to drop from sheer weakness,
and I had begun to think life would
be a continual burden. But all this
is now changed, thanks to Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. These were recommended to me, and after taking
them for about a month I found my
health renewed. I could sleep better, my appetite returned, and I was
so strong and well that housework
was no longer a burden to me. My
sister seemed to be going the same
way last summer and Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills were at once sent for and
two boxes made her as well as ever.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are now the
priiied medicine in our home, and

A writer in a New York paper notices a marked change in the habits
of Londoners, and records the impression thus: Ten years ago, ii you went
into any restaurant or hotel in London and swept your eye over the
tables at lunch time or during dinner,
you would see that the principal
things thereon were liquids in various colors in bottles and glasses, beer,
hock, red wine, sherry, champagne
and port. But if you go into any restaurant now you will find that the
principal burden ot the tables besides
the various dishes consists of carafes
of water, still or bubbling.

It Was Embarrassing, but It

(Copyright. 1810, by American Preoe Aaeo-
One summer 1 alighted tram a stage
st the entrance of a hotel beside a New
Hampshire lake. Tbere were several
persons sitting on the porch, and one, a
yeong girl, arose and advanced wltb a
happy smile to meet me. If there Is
one thing I bave always prided myself
00 It Is keeping my equipoise wben
people speak to me whom I don't remember. 1 bad no Idea wbo tbe girl
waa, but did not propose to betray my
Ignorance. She put out ber band and
put up her lips. Not te give hep tbe
expected kiss wonld bave been a'rude-
Tbat was about as sweet a kiss as
1 ever enjoyed. Whether It was because ber lips bad a peculiar flavor to
tbem. whether lt waa that lt was unexpected or whether tbere was a nnt-
ami predisposition In me for tbat per
ticnlar girl I don't know.   I only know
Wat the softness of rose leaves la noth

enced In tbe pressure of those lips.
Of course 1 waa not ao stupid as te
•peak flrst 1 gave ber tbat privilege
and waited for a one,
"Wbat brought yon eo early r were
lier flrst words.
"I found I could get away earlier
than I expected."
"How did you leave Katherine 7"
"Very well."
"Why, she hasn't recovered, hu
"I mean ebe'a dotao very well"
"I think III go In and register, get-

Entering tbe olliee, I found a clerk
land asked if Mlas — I stumbled on
'the name.
"Miss Elllsonr supplied the clerk.
"Did she say anything about a room

"Tes. bnt she dldnt expect yon on

While we were talking I was running my eye baek ever registered
names nntl! I came lo "Mrs. Montgomery Ellison. Miss Edith Ellison. Detroit" I didn't knew a sonl In Detroit,
eo I waa now quite sure the yonng
lady had mistaken me for some one
else. I most let her down easy. It
occurred tn me that to put my name on
the hotel register might betray tbe
situation, eo. the clerk turning to inspect his key nek. I left bim without
doing so and walked toward the door.

walked ont on to tbe porch and Joined

My next move waa to discover wbat

It was to be supposed tbat he wat
ber lover, but I was not certain.
"You've changed a little since I saw
you," she said.   *
"Do yon tblgk so? Let me tee—how

1 I wished to ask where we were
when we parted and, above all. whether we were lovers. Bow could I
fit me a question to get thia information without making a break?
"I'll bet yon cant remember yonr
last words." I said playfully, "on tbe
day I left yon."
.   "1 can." she ssid-"-don't forget tbe
canny .--
t  "Wbat a memory!"
- "It was delicious.   I almost made
myself sick."
I waa pnsaled. Candy la sweet, bnt
I fancied the last words of a young
girl to ber lover before parting for two
years wonld bave more depth to them.
"Well." I said, making another attempt to draw ber ont "do you feel
Jnst the same as wben we parted?"
"About what?"
"The moat Important thing yon can
think ot"
"The moat Important thing I ana
think of?" sbe said musingly. "Oh. I
knowl No, Indeed I don't feel the sams
about wbat was the moot Important
thing to me at that time."
"Any change there?"
"Why, In wbat yoo bave Jost mentioned."
"Yes, lndeedl Wbst was tt we were
talking about? Oh, yee! I'm eo Bind
to see you thet I can't think of anything else."
"Well, about this change of heart?"
"Change of heart?"
"Yes. Weren't yon saying you've bad
a change of heart?"
"No! What put that Into your bead?"
"Ob, tell me about that most Important thing to you!"
"The moot Important thing when you
left; not now. Well, I waa to have a
new drees, and I was In a great quandary as to whether I'd have It made
up with large or small sleeves. You
know, then tbey had been wearing
small sleeves so long that there was
sure to be a change very soon."
1 gave an Impatient grunt I was
not getting on. Here was I playing
the part of another not knowing whether that other wns cousin, uncle, brother
or lover. The situation waa distressing.
"Do you mean to tell me." I said,
"tbst your heart bas had oo emotional
upheavals since 1 last parted with

the face. "Emotional upheaval!" she
repeated. "Aren't thoee words both too
big to be put together?"
"What I mean ts doee your heart occupy tbe same position It occupied two
years ago. or bas lt changed?"
"You remember tbat position was
"I understand that perfectly well, bnt
an equivocal position may become a
settled one."
"Well, tben. I don't mind telling you
tbst tbe position Is settled. My mind
Is made up."
1 was getting deeper ln the mire
rather tban getting ont of It. Every
moment I dreaded lest I wonld he
called upon to make some explicit statement tbat would give me away. I had
taken a kiss from s stranger I bad no
rlgbt to take, and now I was piling up
tbe sin by endeavoring to extract from
tbat stranger her heart's secret Nevertheless I pushed on.
"Well, what Is the resultT
Tbst things are tbe same as tbey
were before anything happened."
I waa getting red lp the face.
Though tbe sir waa delightfully cool.
1 look out my handkerchief and mopped my face. Having lost my iiwur-

might come In and bring the real

starting there were two trains I mlgbl
lake fifty minutes apart. I took the Unit.
"I'm disappointed." said Mlas Ellison.
"Disappointed!  Why?" I aaked.
"I don't believe yon are glad to see
me a bit."
"How ran yon ray tbat? I wu never happier In my life."
My looks belled my words. 1 was
never more miserable.

in my agitation I had changed positions so often that my chair now
faced tbe ladles sitting on the otber
end of tbe plana. One of tbem gave
me a bow or half a bow, as though
fearful of oot being recognized. Her
face wen familiar lo me. I knew Ibat
I waa acquainted with ber, but I
couldn't place ber. I wu also sitting
with my back to the direction from

mncb resembled myaelf coming np the
steps. He stopped and stared at me.

Into a laugh.
"Frank." sbe said, giving him a duplicate of the kiss she had given me,
"this la Mr. Edwards. He came aa
hour ago, and 1 mistook him for yon.
Hsd not Mrs. Gordon, wbo knows him,
told me when be went in to register '
who he la I should have continued to

She looked at me and burst Into another laugh. It I looked u 1 felt 1
must have resembled a man who had
been tarred and feathered, ridden on a
rail and tben keelhauled. My legs
would'scarcely support me.
Then she kindly came to my rescue.
Tbe real Mr. Wardwell went Inside to
register, and Mlsa Ellison bade me be
seated snd said:
"Don't be troubled. It was my mistake, snd you were led Into It very
naturally. Mr. Wardwell Is my half
brother. Wben I uw him last I was
meditating accepting an offer of marriage.   I declined lt"-
Thank Hod!"
"Aud this Is the explanation," she
continued, with a smile, "of wbat I
was saying to you. But what is the
thank God' for?" turning nway ber
face and continuing tbe smile.
"For two things—flrst, that you declined tbe offer and, secondly, tbat
Mr. Wardwell Is yonr half brother Instead of your lover."
"This Is quite too much." sbe said,
rising,  "for sn  hour's acquaintance.
Yon sbould speak to Mrs. Gordon."

What to Do With Hats.
Tbe most troublesome of a woman's
minor possessions to take care of Is
tbe hatpin, for, no matter how carefully
It Is stuck ln a cushion, something Is
bound to catch tbe head or tbe point
and over goes the cushion, or else tbe
fabric caught Is torn. Even tbe tall
decorative holders made especially for
hatplus are likely to fall, as they become top beavy wben several plus are
put In tbem. Tbe only sensible receptacle for tbem Is a tall, thin necked
vase of glass, glass and silver or of
pottery. Thus, too. Is employment
provided for many a discarded ornament. One woman declares tbat from
tbe cupboard for such burled treasures she bas unearthed enough vases
suitable for this purpose for all the
bedrooms snd bas matched tbe color

Dresden affairs.

Qoldwin Smith's Secretary and Companion May Be His Biographer.
Mr. T. Arnold Haultain, who for IB
years acted in the capacity of private
secretary to the late Qoldwin Smith,
is editing the memoirs ol the deceased
scholar. The reminiscences should
prove one of next year's big books.
For several years beiore his death
Goldwin Smith spent much time and
thought in consultation with Mr.
Haultain, recording his impressions ol
the many eminent figures in world
polities of the past two generation:
with whom he had ec-ne into intimate
contact. Some of the most important
part of this material was dictated during Prof. Smith's last illness. This
Mr. Haultain considers he will have
to thoroughly revise.
In addition to this work, Mr. Haultain is seriously considering writing
a book on Goldwin Smith himself, for
which task no one will deny him
eminently qualified. Who of all the
special writers who lor the past few
weeks have been summing up the career of Canada's grand old msn oi
letters, should be better fitted to reveal his character than Mr. Haultain,
who has studied with him, traveled
with him, and written with him during the ripest years of thi publicist's
Mr. Haultain is a man of considerable literary achievements, an essayist
with a fine old world style, always
entertaining, never a trace of blatant
Americanism. He is one of the advanced authorities on Canadian literature—though he objects to the term
Canadian literature himself, on the
ground that it is premature. Canada
is waiting, for the song of the construction' camps, and the railways,
and the prairies, not transplanted
continentalism, examples of which we
sometimes get labelled "Great Canadian Novels." Mr. Haultain is always
idealistic in his writings, pleading for
?Tester refinement in the young Dorn-
nion where growing pains sometimes
tend to mske rawness subversive of
fixed politeness. Good-humnredly—
Mr. Haultain never rants — he criticises our eccentricities of speech and
manner; the "graphaphone voice." In
"Two Country Walks in Canada" he
censures such un-British expressions
as "on time" lor "punctual," "rigs"
for "carriages." Years ago, he used
to write poetry, graceful finished
verse, which had great "Vogue.
Late Weather Prophet Disagreed Radically With HI.. Fellow Scientists.
Twenty yenrs ago the name of
Prof. E. Stone Wiggins, who passed
away recently in New Brunswick,
was a household word not only in
Canada but in America because of
his ability as a weather prophet. A
highly-educated scientist, ne came tn
for some ridicule because many of his
theories were in diametrical opposition to those of other physicists and
astronomers. He foretold a violent
storm to occur on March 10th, 1883,
to rise in the North Pacific, and
striking America Irom the southwest,
to sweep eastward and along the
Great Lakes. General havoc was to
be done along the Lower St. Lawrence
region and the Gulf ol Mexico. Dread
of the storm induced Canadian and
New England fishermen to keep in
port. They were well rewarded lor it
came on time with all its lury, dealing denth and destruction in its path.
Upon one'occasion Professor Wiggins
wrote to the Lords of the English Admiralty, warning them not to allow
vessels out of port on a certain date
as a most disastrous storm would occur at that time. They only laughed.
However, a lew days Ister the Lord
Mayor of London opened a subscription for the widows and orphans of
the four hundred men of the Hull
fishing fleet lost in tbat storm. One
ot the greatest discoveries wu thst
the atmosphere cannot absorb moisture till charged electrically. To the
perpetual rains of the summer ot
IMS he attributed the eruption of Mt.
Pelee, which filled the northern
hemisphere with electric energy, turning it into a large aerial sponge. In
his book the "Architecture of the
Hesvens," published in 1884, Prof.
Wiggins propounded his theory of the
universe, namely, that the sun is
enclosed in sn atmosphere of electricity by whose positive and negative
forces it attracts and propels the
comets through space. In time these
bodies become so great that the sun
ean no longer repel them, when they
fall into irregular snd finally circular
orbits around the sun.

Aids Nature
The great success of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery in curing 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 the necessary strength to the stomach to digest
food, build up the body and thereby throw off lingering
obstinate coughs. The "Discovery" re-establishes the
digestive and nutritive organs in sound health, purifies
and enriches the blood, and nourishes the nerves—in
short establishes sound vigorous health.

The Breatheabli; Remedy for Catarrh.
The rational wuy u, combat catarrh
is tho IIyiiini'i way, viz., by breathing.

germs und not destroy the tissues uf
the membrane at the Hame time, until the discovery of Hyomei (pronounced High-onie.)

healing antiseptic known. Breathe it
through tho inhaler over the inflamed
and germ-ridden membrane four or
fivo times a day, anil in a few days the
gcrmsfwill disappear.
A complete Hyomei outfit, including the inhaler, costs 81.00, and extra
bottles, if afterwards needed, cost but
50 cent. Obtainable from your druggist or postpaid from the R. T. Booth
