Says Reports of Revolt in
the Republic Are Exaggerated
Growers of winter apples throughout the Pacific northwest,  tbe commercial orchards of which contritm
ted 14 per cent of tbe total production of the United   states in   1911,
already are lining up iheir forces to
defeat a bill  that  is to be brought
forward at the next session   of congress to regulate  the size' of apple
boxes.   The box used as a standard
the  last  ten   years in the P-icific
slope and intermoutitain country is
2,173,5 cubic iuches, while the national  apple   box  proposed in the
Sulzer bill,     recently   abandoned,
specified 2,352 cubic inches.
Since, the  bushel   roetsttre was
figured out by an English captain of
industry,   a  few  centuries  ago, a
bushel of apples bas consisted of  a
bushel heaping full, witb a cone six
inches above the rim, or 2,747715
cubic inches,   to be arithmetically
correct; but, on the otber hand, the
United States customs officials, in
the absence of direct legislation on
the    subject,     contended   that   a
bushel  of  apples is like any other
bushel,'and  should   contain   only
2,150 42 cubic inches, or  less thnn
tbe Northwestern box.
Now conies a decision of  Judge
Marion   DeVries, ,pf  the    United
States court of customs appeals, who
holds   in   brief a-i  follows:    "Tbe
bushel has come, by usage in   trade
and commerce, to be  with   us   the
Winchester bushel of English   law
prior to 1826, the date of tbe adoption of the imperial bus-he! in  Eng
land.   By a statute of Anne, A.D.
180,1, recognizing a  trade usage al
ready  in  force, apples and   pears
were required to he sold by heaping
measure; and in the absence of any
specific declaration   bv  congress as
to tbe contents of a bushel of  apples
or  the Jike,   it will be presumed
thut a bushel ol today is n bushel of
English law and   custom   in   1778,
and a bushel of applet is not a struck
Winchester bushel,  but that measure heaped."

"Scotty" Carruthers' large residence on Third street, near the Kettle river, was completely destroyed
by fire on Monday night. All thc
household effects weie also burned,

12 o'clock, when the occupants ol

time to save their lives from the
flames. Some emerged from the
burning building wrapped in blankets, not even having time to save
their wearing apparel.
Tbe building   was a large frame,

was exceedingly  hot.    Fortunately
the house wss isolated, and the tire-
nlen had no difliculty in preventing
tbe flames from spreudii g.     The

have started from an incubator kept

The Effect of 'Good Seed
If one extra potato were added to
each plant grown in the United States
the actual increase in the annual
yield of tho crop'would amount to
21,000,000 bushels. The figure is given
in a report on "Dry Farm Crops and
Their Improvement," by Prof. F. B.
Linfield, of the Montana agricultural
college, and published by the International Dry Farming Congress in its
annual handbook.
"If one extra kernel were added to
naoh head ol oats, barley, wheat or
ear of corn," says Prof. Linfield, "we
would have of oats, 20,000,000 bushels
extra; of barley, l.l.nno.otio bushels
extru; of wheat, l.r,,000.000 bushels extra; and of corn, r,.200,000 bushels extra. And nol for one year alone, but
for all time, this Blight Increase lu the
yield of the plant would add many millions ot htiBhels to our crops.
"Clean, plump selected seed, true to
variety, not mixed, freo from weed

germinating power should always be

Increasing his own yield."

China's Capitals
Tlie selection of Nanking as the capital by the provincial government of
China recalls the fact that the city
has had that designation at least twice
before. Literally,-the imiaio signifies
"Southern Capital," while tho meaning
of Pekin- is "Northern Capital." Just

empire, Nanking was the seat of the
Government is not mt-.de clear by, the
old records. In the early years of the
fifteenth century, however, tho capital was moved from there lo Pekiu.
During the Taipiug rebellion, the
opponents of the government designated Nanking as their seat ot government. That was in 1853; the rebels
kept up a semblance of power in the
city until their downfall in 1864,
. The new capital is in the centre of
what may bo designated the progressive part of China. Pekin's methods
and history are associated with tne
traditions of Manchuism.

BURN CAUSED OPEN 80RE
Zam-Buk Worked a Wonderful Cure.
Sometimes a bad burn, a deep cut,
or-some similar mishap, sets up a
permanent injury, in the form of an
open, discharging Bore. In such cases
Zam-Buk will be found of unequalled
value.
Mr. \ Nixon, of 901 William Ave.,
.Winnipeg, a blacksmith ot the C.P.R.
shops, hatl his foot badly burned by
some molten metal falling upon it. He
says: "The burn was a very bad one,
and utter the first tew days lt left an
open sore, which showed marked signs
of blood-poisoning. It discharged freely and caused me terrible agony. For
three weeks 1 suffered acutely and
could get no ease. At last I obtained
a preparation from the doctor, whicli
seemed lo stop the discharging and
made me quite hopeful, but finally the
wound became aB bad as over.
"I was then advised to use Zam-Buk,
and from the first application the
balm gave me relief. The inflammation wbb thoroughly checked, and the
poisonous matter cleared away in a
very short time after beginning with
Zatn-Bult. Healing then began, and In
less than two weekB the wound was
thoroughly cured."
Ono of the main lessons of this case
lies right here—try Zam-Buk first for
any injury, sore, Bkln diseaBe or
wound. Don't spend money and waste
time ln experiments. Zam-Buk is equally good tor piles, blood-poisoning, festering wounds, chaps, cold sores, child-
rens' eruptions, scalp sores, varicose
ulcerB, chilblains, etc. All druggists

In the system cause pain and give
rise to feelings ot fatigue.

vigor and activity.

matter which has been clogging and
retarding the organs of digestion is
removed. Headaches, and backaches
disappear, the appetite is sharpened,
digestion improves and you feel fine
ln every way.
A single box' of Dr. Chase's Kidney-
Liver Pills, at a cost of twenty-five

HER DAUGHTER SAVED
8TRICKEN WITH AdUTE RHEUM-
ATI8M—RECOVERY 8CARCELY
EXPECTED
Mrs. Dolina J. Lawlor, writing from
Oxbow, Sask.,'says: "I would be lacking in gratitude lt I did not write ypu
and let you know of the wonderful
good your Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
have done for my daughter, Belle Lawlor. Indeed I think I may safely say
that tbey have been the means of saving ber life. For many years my home
has been ln Bruce Mines, Ont. Something over a year ago my son and
daughter, then in her sixteenth year,
left for tbe west. When leaving here
my daughter was In the best ot health,
but ln fie following spring .she was
stricken with what the docto.- said was
inflammatory rheumatism in Its worst
form. After n few weeks she was
able to get up, but her hands and
limbs were so swollen that Bhe could
not dress herself. She continued ln
this way for some tic.;, and. then a
second attack, worse than the first,
set in, and my son' telegraphed me, as
she yrea very low. While I was getting ready to make the trip of eighteen
hundred mileB I got a second message
to come at once, as they feared she
could not live. When I reached ber
I found her even worse than I had expected. She was bo weak and emaciated that I would not have known
her, and she could only speak in a
whisper. Her hands and fingers were
all twisted and her limbs swollen to
twice their natural size. The doctor
had then been attending her for two,
months, and she seemed steadily grow-^
ing worse. We did not dare move her
In bed for fear of her heart giving out.
She waa as pale as a corpse, and her
lips and face always cold. Wo had to
fan her continually, and if we ceased
only tor a little while she would gasp
tor breath, and no one who saw her
thought It possible sho could get belter. She suffered such pain that 1
used to go out of the room and put my
fingers in my oars to shut out her
Hasping and moaning. I had known
before of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and
aB wo could gradually see her sinking
I told my Bon 1 was going to give her
the Pills. Ho was opposed to my idea
tor he thought a change in the medicine might prove fatal. Howoer, I*,
was finally decided to give her the
Pills, ln a week's time she showed
some improvement and felt like eating. From that time on she began to
sain steadily. Gradually her hands
and fingers became straight, the swelling ln the limbs went down, and her
heart-heats became regular, and the
color returned to her face, and Boon
the cure wbb complete. She Is now
as strong and healthy bb any girl of
her age, and to see her you would
never think she had passed through
an Illness from which none of her
friends thought she could recover. You
have my sincerest thanks for what
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills bave done for
my daughter, and you may be sure I
shall always recommend them."        I

It required an appropriation of
$200,0011 of lbe people's money to
secure thi; election by acclamation of
one government member in Alberni.
Ijfri !.arly every instance where the

Tub Grand Forks correspondent of
Nelson News should be more careful
in obtaining facts. The Sun does not
know of any Liberals or Socialists in
this dfstrict who have expressed confidence in the McBride government.
He is only "Good Roads" Taylor

The roads are realljLnot much better
than th^y were when he became a
cabinet minister, ulthough the loud
appropriations since that time have
been excessively high.

The Liberal platform on this issue
reads as follows; "(1) We insist on
the complete removal of the liquor
question from partf politics. (2) The
control of the liquor traffic should be
vested in the municipalities or locally-
elected boards iu unorganized territories. (3) A local option law. (4)
For the protection of the public we
insist upon careful inspection of all
liquors offered for sale."
For five years the records of tho
government's prodigality—or worse—
has been locked and guarded and the
public denied access to evidence which
would inevitably result in  conviction.
In a speech at Agassiz, J. P. McConnell, Liberal candidate for Ya'e,
said: "I challenge Mr. McBride to
show whether orjiot the government
has made a payment of $800,000, o'r
any other sum, as a whole or part of
a first installment of interest on the
bonds of the Canadian Northern
railway guaranteed in 1909. It
would mean .that the fust payment
of interest would practically burden
the whole $4G,000,000 on the province."
It will be interesting to note'what
the local Conservative candidate will
have to say in defence of the repurchase by the government of thousands of acres of mountain peaks
and useless lauds from the C. P. H.
Railway company, for 40 cents an
acre. Messrs. McBride, Cotton, Tis-
dall and otber members and supporters of the government objected
to giving the railway company 25
cents an acre for the lands before
they were picked over and the best
culled out, but are quite agreeabU to
give 40 cents an acre for the refute,
and Mr. Shaw was among those who
favored this being done. What has

Your Money Back for the
Asking.   You Promise
Nothing
We are *io confident that w« can
furnish relief for indigestion and dyspepsia that we promise to supply the
medicine free of all cost to every one
who usnit according tu direction who
is not perfectly satisfied with the results. We exact no promise aud put
no one under any obligation whatever.
.Surely nothing could be fairer. Wa
are lecated right here where you live,
aud our reputation should be sufficient
assurance of the genuineness of our
offer.
We want every one who is troubled
with indigestion or dyspepsia in any
form to come to our store and buy a
box of Rexall Dyspepsia Tablets.
Take them home, and give them a reasonable trial, according to directions.
If they don't please you, tell us and
we will quickly return your money.
They have a very mild but positive
action upon the organs with whioh
tbey couie iu contact, .apparently acting as a regulative tonic upon the re-
vassal newspapers as surely as a fire
must have sticks.
Of course they receive suitable rewards in the form of advertising and
job printing and copious subsidies and
bonuses and premiums. But how the
bosses reduced them to such vassalage,
such servitude, and made absolute
flunkeys of them all, would be a hard
question to answer. The litte words
serfdom, bondage, and slavery do
not properly express the shackled condition of these newspapers.
Take any of these papers that wear
the yoke, for example. You expect a
party paper to support its party, of
course. But these papers do not only
do that: they are servile. Their obvious flunkeyism makes yuu sick,
afl'hey uot only follow .the government,
but they follow at its chariot wheels
with chains round their neck. This servitude is incomprehensible, because
the rewards received by these papers
are not big enough. With thiee or
four notable exceptions, tne bosses aie
not generous to these papers. Anybody can understand the bosses who
distate tne issue ukases to these parasitical newspapers insisting upon obedience, buhpuoh cowering, crawling,
groveling obsequiousness is hard to
undrstanJ.
The government's leading organs
fawn upon the two bosses like*- dogs.

this Season.   r_/ln Inspiration of Love and
Affection—r^4 Picture that will be like a
-. . Member  of  the  Family—A   Daily
Study for Old and Young'
rrilK K.imily Herald nnd Weekly Star of Montreal, acknowledged to be
\ the greatest and best family and farm paper on the continent, has on
many occasions given its readers most delightful premium picture,
hut this season they have secured what is beyond any question of doubt
"•the best picture ever offered newspaper readers. It is entitled "Home
Again" and describes a touching but joyful incident between two friends
who meet after anxious separation. c
"Laddie," a collie dog, famous'for his beauty and gentleness, winners
nf many prizes at dog snows, tbe pride ol the family and neighborhood,
has been stolen, and alter many days' absence he escapes one night from
his captor and returns homo on a snowy winter's morning with the rope
whieh he broke in his struggles for freedom dangling from his collar.
His familiar bark brings his little mistress, Marjoric, to the door und
she throws her arms around her trusty playmate's neck with cries of joy
which bring her mother and brother to the door. "Laddie" is equally
delighted to be "Home Again," and answers he'r welcome by putting his
paws on her shoulder and resting his head against her breaBt with a little
whine, which in his dog language means—"Where 1 love is Home."
The sweet-faced young mother, a woman' of soft curves, tender eyes
nnd parted lips—the two glad-eyed children—an eager boy with hair like
1 i- mother's nnd the quick gesture iif excited boyhood; the warm-hearted
girl with rippling locks, her affectionate arms around the shaggy neck .of
ihe beautiful collie, all go to form a picture tbnt will win a favored place
on the walls of any home.
The picture is by tbe celebrated artist, Arthur J, Elsley, famous for
his skilful anil sympathetic painting of children and animals.
The beautiful picture "Horns Again" on henvy plnle pnper 22x20
inches all ready for training will be mailed FRKK to every subscriber of
The Sun and Family Herald and Weekly Star for 1912.
- The small Bum of 81.00 will secure the two papers for a full yenr including a copy of the charming picture "Home Again," which nlone is
easily worth a two dollar bill, in fact it could not be bought nt thnt price.
Every home in Mhe Boundary should get the big Si.-50 worth this
season.

CURED ACHES AND
PAINS LIKE MAGIC
WHEN HE USED DODD'S KIDNEY
PILL8 FOR RHEUMATISM
Saskatchewan man tells of quick relief
after three years of suffering.
Holbeck, Sask.,—Among the many
on the prairies wbo are shouting the
praises of Dodd's Kidney Pills none
speak with more enthusiasm than Mr.
Matt. Syversou, a well-known resident
of thiB place.
"I suffered from Rheumatism for
three years," Mr. Syverson says; "and
I was also troubled with an acute
pain around my heart. My case was
a serious one and several times I
doubted if recovery was possible. But
seven boxes of Dodd's Kidney Pills
cured me completely.
"I can truly and honestly recommend Dodd's Kidney Pills as a remedy
for cases like mine. They surely
cleared out all my aches and pains as
II by magic."
Rheumatism is caused by uric acid
ln the blood. When the kidneys are
right they strain all the m ic acid out
of the blood. Dodd's Kidney Pills
make the kidneys right. That is why
they never fall to cure rheumatism
and kindred diseases.

Sad Surprise at the Wedding

THE SPARKLES THAT FAILED.
Samuel Starts the Evening at Home
With High Resolves-Mrs. Bowser's
Jey Pales on Discovery That the
"Diamond" Gift Is Spurious.
•y M. QUAD.
(Copyright, line, by Associated Literary
Press.]
THERE was a good nntnred
■mile on Mr. Bowser's face as
be entered the door tbe otber
evening, and tbe tired Mre.
Bowser' was glad to see lt. The cook
had taken a day off to attend tbe wedding of a sister, and the work had
fallen on the mistress.
"Never mind, old girl," Mr. Bowser
answered as she explained matters.
"The dinner will be good enongh for
anybody. It you'd telephoned me we
wonld have gone ont to a restaurant"
"Welt, If you won't scold I shall be
■II right"
"8cold? Scold? Why, I'm glad the
eook went out. We'll have a little dinner all by ourselves. Capital! Fine!
Just what I would bave wished for."
Mr. Bowser snt dawn ln a jolly
mood. Bc mlgbt have found fault
with some things, but he didn't.' He
praised everything, nnd now and then
be chuckled. His altitude was co
strange Hint Mrs. Bowser finally
queried:
•'Was business extra good today?"
'■Business sll right-all right."
"And aro you feeling better than
usual?"
"Keeling like a new gold dollar.
Shake hands, Mrs. Bowser."
She gave lilm her hand across the
table, but at tbe snme time wondered
If be hnd gone crazy.
He grinned and chuckled and filially
burst Into laughter.
"Mr. Bowser, will yeu tell me what
tans happened! I can't make yon out
■t all."
"Ha, ba, ha! Little woman, do you
remember thirty years ngo today?"
"Why-why—let's see? Thirty years
■go?   My stars, but It's onr weddlog

• "Sure jou had-sure!"
"But you had remembered lt, you

"Of course. Thnt'e wby I'm glad
•bout the dinner. It's our little wedding dinner over again. Fine, One!
Oh. I'm not such an old codger a; you
sometimes take me for:"
"You are Just oue of the best men In
the world, und I am coming aronnd
the table to kiss you! How forgetful
of me, and bow thoughtful of you!"
The meal was not half finished yet.
•nd Mr. Bowser continued to smile
■nd .'buckle. He evidently hod something up his sleere. What It was did
But develop until they bnd reached tbe
silting room. Mrs. Bowser wns on the
point of saying that ahe would like to
celebrate the occasion by going to tbe
Ibeater, when be announced:
Resolutions te Stop.
"It Is a snowy, blowy night, and
•we'll pass It at our own fireside In
talk. Yes. just thirty years ago this
afternoon you became my bonny bride.
Have you ercr regretted It. dear?"
"Of course not.   Hare you?"
•'Never. I have often talked about
divorce, but tbnt wns only n bluff, you
know. And I have done some blowing
■bout your extravagance In running
. the house, but. of course, I dldu't mean
It." .     -
"I never thought you did."
"that's sweet nnd nice of you.- I
ought to bc ashamed of myself, and I
■is, and 1 promise to do better .In the
future. Here, on tbe thirtieth anniversary of our wedding dny. I'm going to
promise to stop certain things:
"I shall not roar any more about the
coal bills.
"I won't sny nuother blamed word
■bout the gas bills.
"I'll never mention divorce end alimony again,
"I won't contend tbatl could run tne
house better than you do.
"I won't growl about tbe prices yoo
pay to tbe grocer nnd butcher.
"1 won't buy a Are escape, a burglar
alarm nor a dying machine.
"I wou't climb Mount McKinley nor
discover the north pole.
"1 won't try to save gns nor bring a

"I won't trade tbe place for a chicken farm nor go to mlslug sugar beets.
"If we play euchre you can have the
Joker In the pack, and If you get It on
roar deal I won't aay yon stole It.
"There, dear, whnt do you think of
that?" bc triumphantly finished.
"Just ns I said before, you- are the
best man Iu the world," replied Mrs.
Bowser.
Handout of the Gift.
"Aud, now, dear, I want to hand yon
a slight token to aid you to remember
tho happy day.- 1. know you will ba
pleased with It, for you've always
wanted one. Give me a kiss and take
It"
And thereupon he handed ber out a
bracelet set wltb diamonds. It was
more than set. It wns studded with
tbe precious stones. >
Mrs. Bowser ««v -asn of delight
and reached for tbe bauble.
Tben her baud and ber face fell.
"What Is It honey? Don't you admire lt?"
"Y-yes."
"Isn't It what you've long wanted?"
"1-1 guess so."
"gee bere, now," said Mr. Bowser aa
be rose up; "there's something wrong
hero, nud I want to know what it is.
Would you rather hnve had a cluster
ring?"
"No, but"-
"But what?  Out with It!"
"Did you buy this at a jewelry
store?"
"Did I? Did I? Well, no, but It's
just ns good as If I bud, Isn't tt? You
cnn see thai It's new. I couldn't lind
nny bracelets In tbe jewelry stores.
They were nil just out of them. Just
as 1 got off the car this evening a gentleman stepped up to me aud asked me
to buy tbis at a bargain. It belonged
to bis wife, who died before sbe ever
wore it It's worth $200, but 1 beat
bim down to $S0."
"Ob. Ui*. Bowser, you didn't pay him
mr
"I'd hnve been a fool not to!"
"But this forenoon a detective came
along our street and warned us nil
against the man. He's what they call
a faker. "He wns here balf an hour
before you came and offered tbis very
bracelet for $10!"
"By thunder!" ,
"And I'm sure he would have taken
$n. The gold ts only brass, and the
diamonds are glass."
Bowser Bunkoed.
Mr. Bowser, red fared and month
.open, stood for a moment und then
shouted:
"Tben I don't know diamonds from
glass, eh? I'm u fool, ami? 1 need a
guardian, do I? -Woman, don't trifle
wltb mc!"
"But go out nnd ask some one. Go
to a Jeweler," she replied.
"I will go, madnm-I will go. And
I will return to confound you. Yon
may get. down on your knees to me,
but It will do uo good. Never-never
will 1 forgive you!" s
And three minutes later be was In
the drug store around the corner.
"You bought It off a man, didn't
ydii?" nsked tbe druggist as bc banded
tbe bracelet back.
"Yes."
"Five dollars?
"No-llftj!"
"Tben go hang yourself! Yon are
tbe biggest fool In the state!"
Mr. Bowser visited three Jewelry
■tores In succession. In each Instance
the bracelet was handed back In a
weary way with the rooinrk:
"Wholesale price $2 each!"
Then be went home to find Mn.
Bowser reading. Sbe didn't even look
up, and after waiting ten minutes be
said:
"In tbe morning you cnn consult
your lawyer nnd I will mine, nnd we
will arrange for the dlrorce and alimony!"     ^^^^^^^^

"You will never get Edith," said
Dure Spalding to his friend Luther
Bennett, "and you may as well not
try. You are rich and she Is poor, but
you're not tbe kind of a fellow she
would fancy."
"You tblnk so?"
"I know so." i
"What will you give her for a wedding present if I do?"
"Wbat will I give? It seems to me
that's heads you win, tails I lose.
What will you give If you don't ?"
"I'll give a thousand dollars to nny
charity you name."
"In what time."
"One year."
"Have you received any encouragement?"
"None whntever."
"Very well; I'll go you. Ho.y do you
propose to win?"
"The basis of my operations will be
money."
"She'll not marry for money."
"Not directly, but Bhe may be Induced to do so Indirectly."
A few weeks later Bennett received
a note from Miss Edltb Cromwell stating tbat a fair was to be glveu to raise
money for the church of which she
was a member wltb a view to paying
off tbe debt Sbe hoped he would attend and help thc cnuse. Mr. Bennett
replied tbat he would be on hand.
Whon tbe evenlug for the sale arrived
he sauntered up to MIsS. Cromwell's
booth, expended $10 ln various articles
bc bad no use for and left tbem to bc
sold again. Miss Cromwell was disappointed. She had expected to get at
least double the amount from one sho
knew to be her admirer and rich.
"Is there nothing else you sec that
yon want?"
"Nothing else? I haven't yet bought
anything 1 want."
"Is there nothing I can procure for
you?"
"Yes; I wonld like a photograph of
your pretty face, but that, of courso,
U not for sale."
Miss Cromwell made no reply for
awhile. She was thinking she might
get a pretty sum for the church by
yielding in tbe matter. Finally sbe
said:
"Of course my likeness Is not for
sale, hut 1 might give it to the church,
and the church could sell lt."
"Certainly."
"How much would It bring?"
"A thousand dollars."
Miss Cromwell caught her breath.
There were two reasons for her doing
so-viz, she wns flattered that any
man should value her photograph so
highly, and she would lie delighted to
band lu a thousand dollars to tbe
church. She turned tho matter over
rapidly in ber mlud. Wbat difference
would Bennett's possession of her likeness make? A mnn might buy a photograph of a fashionable beauty for a
few cents. Those of actresses were
for sale everywhere. Thc debt was
$1,205. The $205 would undoubtedly
be raised at this fair. The $1,000 she
would get for ber photograph would
.oniplete tbe amount required.
"What would yon propose to do with
my photograph?" sbe asked.
"Wear It In tbe hunting case of my
watch."
"Wonld nuy one except yourself see
itr
"One standing hy when I looked for
the time of day would be likelv to see
It."
Miss Cromwell thought again. "Will
you do anything else with it?" she
asked.
"No."
"I'll think It over. The fnlr lasts two
evenings. Come tomorrow evening
nnd I'll give yon nn nnswer."
Bennett went away, assuming a
careless air, though he was much Interested in thc proposed deal. He wns
desperately Iu love with lhe girl nnd
would have paid a dozen church debts
to get her. The next evening (Intel ho
stopped at her booth. As soon us she
saw him the color left her cheek. She
was waiting on some one else at the
time nnd as soon its she hnd finished
opened n little box. took out a cabinet
photograph and bunded it to Bennett
He concealed a look of triumph as he
drew forth a pocket check book, wrr.te
a check for $1,000 and gave It to her.
She folded It, placed It In the box from
which she bad taken the photograph
and sold:
"You can cut the bend off if you like,
nnd It will fit In your watch case."
"That's exactly what I propose to
do." And he walked away, apparently as carelessly as if he bad purchased
a pincushion.
The next day I.utbcr Bennett while
chatting with bis friend Dave Spalding took out his watch to look at the
time, and Spalding caught a glimpse
of Miss Cromwel.'s bend In the case.
"By Jove!" exclaimed Spalding,   j
"What's the matter?"
"You have won already."
"I don't claim to hove won." And,
llendlug au engagement, Bennett bur*
ried away.
Spalding went at once to Miss Cromwell, told her tbnt he had seen her
bead In Bennett's watch ense and asked her If Bennett bad a right to wear
It there. ./
Miss Cromwell was stunned. Sbe
admitted that he had, bnt she wouldn't
explain. Since she wns unwilling to
have It known tbnt she had sold her
likeness even for the church she never
explained. She sent for Bennett, who
came and convinced ber thnt there
was bnt one way out of tbe matter-
to marry him.
A Failure.
"Do you think, sir." nsked the waiter, helping the guest on with his etint,
"that lightning ever strikes twice in

"Yes. I guess it does," answered the
departing dluer.

at tills table before you came in gave
me a fifty cent tip, sir."
"Ah, Indeed! And you think there
may be a chance Hint he'd come hack

SELECTING A DRAFT SIRE.
Qualities That Indicate the Most Desirable Animal.
Every one wbo Intends to undertake.
to raise draft horses sbould look before
he leaps, says the Country Gentleman.
The same qualities are desirable In all
breeds of these horses, but unfortunately all the desirable qualities are
not confined to n single breed. For Instance, there/Js no breed equal to the
Clydesdale la bind pastern; tbe Suffolk
bns good feet, superior bowels nnd a
disposition equaled hy none; thc Shli-e
lias more size: tho I'ercheron an attractive carriage, smootl^ legs nnd ■
style and color pleasing to those wbo
like the grays and blacks. The Belgian has fewer admirers because he
lacks action, yet ho Is sturdy and s
splendid doer.
There are splendid nulmnls cf all
breeds, yet thc undesirable will always
predominate. • Soundness must be tile
first quality, lu n stallion feet must
always be marked down as quality No.
2. Small nnd shelly feet are often
transmitted from stallion to foal. The
foot should bc round nnd wide at the
bed, and the born should bc tough.
Disposition should be placed third.
Though a stallion should be masculine J
In every way, yet he should be easy to
handle and free from vklousoess.
Fourth Is bowel development It Is the
mainstay of a hard day's work. The
horse with good bowels hns room to
store his food, Is a big enter, a good
doer and a hardy animal. Do not be
deceived, however, by- tbe shrewd stallion dealer, wbo can put fnt - li u had
howeled horse and glvo bim the desired appearance.
Quality No. 5 will be chest and
quarters. A draft horse should be
wide In tbe cbest aod  bis quarter*
The modern Belgian can be described as wide, massive, ample,
round and compact In conformation, says the Breeder's Gazette.
The head Is shorter than the Flemish, the ears ore short and thick,
and the face Is rather lacking In expression. The-nccU Is characteristlo
of lhe breed, being short and massive and surmounted with a short,
dense mane of coarse hair The
withers Sre wide and thick, but not
very high. Tho back Is wide and
strong, but a little swayed, whllo
the croup, owing lo lis superabundance of muscle, is double. The
shoulders are strong, the knees wide
and flat and the canons short, There
are some blacka and many roans,
but the prevailing colors are bays
and chestnuts. Tho general appearance of a Belgian denotes enormous
strength, coupled^wlth a calm temperament, moro or less lymphatic.
The Belgian stallion shown waa five
times a lirst prize winner at Brussels.
broad and muscular and well let down
to the hocks. Action Is sixth. Always
stand directly In front of or behind
tho horse ns he Is walked nnd trotted.
The action should be true, tbe hind
feet moving In n direct line wltb the
front No "winger" or "paddler"
sbould be selected. The horse should
pick up his feet with a snap In bla
movement
Quality No. 1 la bone. Years ago It
was aupposed tlmt lilg bone was ■
necessary adjunct of a druft horse,
but alnce no one has yet heard of ■
horse breaking bis leg becnuse hla
bono was not large enough tbe term
big bone Is used only by would be
horsemen and those who arc Iguoraut
of the deslrnblo qualities ln houe.
Quality is what we want. The bone
should be bard nnd (Inf. nnd the tendons on the legs should stand out
prominently. The round boned horse
should he discarded.
The otber qualities to be considered
nre straight hind legs, straight feet-
pigeon toed nnd slew footed horses nre

TtNDIRS
You cannot be over-careful in tlie
selection of medicine for children. Only
the very gentlest bowel medicine
should ever be given, except in emergency cases. Ordinary pills, cathartics and purgatives aro apt to do more
harm than good. They may cause
griping, nausea and other distressing
al'ter-ell'ects that are frequently health-
desttoying.
We personally recommend and guar
antee ltenall Orderlies as the safest
and most dependable temedy, which
We know, for constipation and associate bowel disorders. We have such
absolute in the virtues of this remedy
that we sell it on our guarantee of
money back in every instance where
it fails to give entirejsatisfaction, and
we urge all in need of such medicine
to try it at our risk.
Rexall Orderlies are eaten just like
candy, are particularly prompt and.
agreeable in action, may be taken at
any time, day or night; do not cause
diarrhoea, nausea, griping, excessive
ooseness, or other undesirable effects.
They have a very mild but positive
action upon the organs with whicli
they ceme in contact, apparently acting as a regulative tonic upon the relaxed muscular coat of the bowel,
thus overcoming weakness, and aiding to restore the bowels to t. more
vigorous and healthy activity.
Rexall Orderlies commonly completely relieve constipation, except of
course wben of a surgical character.
They also tend to overcome the neces
sity of constantly taking laxatives to
keep the bowels in normal condition.
Three size; of packages, 10 cents, 25
cents, and 50 ceuts. Kemember, you
can obtain Rexall Remedies in Grund
Forks only at our store—The Rexall
Store.     H. E. Woodland.
