A communication from W. O,
Miller, district superintendent of the
C.P.R., stated that it would cost
$8800 to construct a standard subway at the Winnipeg avenue crossing, and nothing but a standard
subway would be considered by tbe
company at present. He adviced
the council to hold tbe matter in
abeyance unti.l the company's plan
for more extensive improvements in
this city were more fully matured

policy with a local agency if possible.
A letter irom tbe Vancouver Rubber Co., Ltd., stated tbat 500 feet ol
hose and other appliances for the

Clerk Minhinnick, had been shipped.
The mayor informed the council
that Mr. Minhinnick had ordered
these goods without authority from
the council,'and he, the mayor, had
subsequently cancelled the order,
but the company had refused to accept the cancellation because tbe
goods had already been shipped
from Toronto. The city solicitor
expressed the opinion that the city
would nnt be obliged to accept the
order. On motion, the clerk was instructed to explain the situation to
the company, and to show them
where they erred in not accepting
the cancellation.
The usual number of accounts

M.' Frankovitch, of the Grand
Forks hotel, addressed the council
in support of tbe construction oi a
sidewalk from his hotel to Woodland's drug Btore on First street.
He stated he had been unable to secure tbe signatures of the interested
property owners to a petition asking
for the construction of the walk, as
it had been destroyed by fire, and

lie, 12; New Republic, 20; Gold
Coin, 4. Many oi these faces are in
the same ledges, but a large number
of them are in independent   shoots.
The manager of the New Republic mine expects to have the first
250-ton unit ol the new mill in
operation by June 1.
At about 9:30 this morning a
break occurred in tbe Granby flume,
300 yards above the power house,
and thirty ieet oi the structure were
carried away. The accident to the
flume will not affect the operation
oi tbe smelter, as it simply means
that more oi the Bonnington Falls
power will be used at the works.
Tbe flume waB constructed about
twelve years ago, when the smeller
was built, and the accident bas been
expected for some time past.
The high winds during tbe first oi
tbe week blew a laundry in Chinatown askew. It now resembles
the leaning tower oi Pisa. The
sky end oi the building occu
pies the air space oi another Chinaman's ground property. This has
raised serious legal complications
among tbe Celestials. The man
who oww the lot on which the atmosphere has been pushed off by
the top story oi the building claims
that he is entitled to ground rent,
while the laundryman points to the
fact tbat bis building does not occupy any ol bis neighbor's ground.
Tbe controversy has been quite ani
mated during the past tew days.
None oi the local barristers appear
to be able to satisfy tbe disputants
as to their legal rights.

Tennis club, held recently, the following officers were elected for the
ensuing year: President, George M.
Lee; vice-president, J. D. Campbell;
secretary-Treasurer, C. E. Smith;
executive committee, Messrs. Lee,
Campbell, Smith, Hamilton and
Lathe. Two courts are now being
put in shape ior the season's playing, and will be ready shortly. A
tournament is contemplated, as in
former years. Any one wishing to
join the club, which has a limited
membership, is requested to com

is particularly d'rjcted to the necessity
of forwarding to A. Bryan Williams,
provincial game warden, Vancouver,
on the date of the issue of each license, a memorandum giving number
of the license, the name to whom
issued, the denomination, date, and
The attention of government agents
is also called to the bounty of $2

One oi tbe largest audiences ever
seen inside tbe opera bouse witnessed tbe presententation oi the
"Spinsters' Return," a spinsters'
convention comedy, by tbe ladies of
tbe city, assisted by three or lour
gentlemen, last night. Every Beat
wa* occupied, and some oi the
standing room had been rented. The
stage bad been beautifully decorated
ior the occasion, and it presented
pretty picture, crowded, as it was,
witb handsomely attired "spinsters"
and children.
From a dramatic standpoint the
play was not very pretentious. But
it gave ample scope for tbe display
oi the musical and literary talents
of those taking part in tbe performance, and every one acquitted themselves in a highly complimentary
manner. The numbers tbat appealed most strongly to the audience were solos by Mrs. Mclnnes,
Mies Edna Traunweiser, and little
Kathleen Kerby, the youngest member oi the company oi artists. Theae
were all heartily encored. A violin
solo by Miss Kerman waa also one
oi tbe treats oi the evening, and she
I was tendered several encores. Bet-
, sy Van Tassell's eight talented children all played their parts well, and
came in ior a round oi applause.
The ladies' orchestra bad, apparently, been organized primarily for
laughing purposes, and it had tbe
desired effect. The experiences oi
the spinsters in tbeir search for husbands were related in a manner that
produced much merriment. Tbe
chairwoman of the convention and
leader of the orchestra, and Prof.
Dinkenspiel, the hypnotist, handled
their parts well. The bachelors of
the city furnished tbe subjects for
the local hits, which were cunningly constructed and well received.
Ii the spinsters will only persevere,
undoubtedly a large percentage oi
thehachelors in the city can be
teastd into becoming benedits.

their best efforts toward making tbe
entertainment a brilliant success:

Venner had scarcely ceased speaking before Fenwick and Vera appeared. She gave one timid glance at
Venner; then, averting her eyes, she
walked demurely across to her place
at the table. Fenwick followed, looking downcast und moody, nnd altogether unlike a man who is supposed
to be the happy possessor of millions.
Hie manner was curt and irritable,
and he seemed disposed to find fault
with everything. Venner noticed, too
that though the man ate very little,
he partook of far more champagne
than was good for anyone. Thanks
no doubt to the wine, the man's dark
mood lifted presently, and he began
chatting to Vera. The two men at the
other table appeared to be deeply interested in their dinner, though, as o
matter of fact, they were listening intently to every word thnt Fenwick
was saying. He wus talking glibly
enough now about some large house
in the country which he appeared to
have taken for the winter months
Vera listened with polite indifference.
. "In Kent," Fenwick was saying.
"Not far from Canterbury. A fine old
house, filled with grand furniture,
just the sort of place you'd like. I've
made all arrangements, nnd the sooner we get away from London the better I shall be pleased."
"It will be rather dull, I fear."
Vera replied. "I don't suppose that
I shall get on very well with county
people "
"Hang the county people," Fenwick
growled. "Who cares a straw for
them? Not but what they'll come
along fust enough when they hear
Mark Fenwick, the millionaire, is fn
their midst. Still, there is a fine park,
round the house, and you'll be able
to get as much riding as you want."
Venner watching furtively, saw that
Vera was interested for the first time.
He had not forgotten the fact that
she was an exceedingly fine horsewoman; he recollected now Uie glorious rides they had had together.
Interested as he was in tbe mysterious set of circumstances which had
wound themselves into his life, he
was not without hope now that this
change would enable him to see more
of Vera than was possible in London.
In the lonely country he would be
able to plan meetings with her; indeed, he had made up his mind to
leave London as soon as    Vera had
§one. Moreover, in this instance,
uty and inclination pointed the same
way. If the mystery was to be solved and Vera freed from her intolem-
We burden, it would ba essential that
every movement of Fenwick's should
be carefully watched. The only way
to carry out this plan successfully
would be to follow him into Kent.
"You heard that?1" he murmured to
Gurdon. "We must find out exactly
where this place is, and then look
out some likely quarters in the neighborhood. I must contrive to see Vera
and learn her new address before she
"No reason to worry about that,"
Gurdon snid. "It will all be in the
papers, the doings of these nionied
men are chrunicled as carefully -now
ng the movements of Royalty. It i«
any odds when you take up your
Morning Post in the morning that
you will know not only exactly where
Fenwick ia going to spend the winter,
but get an exact history of fhe house.
80 far as I ean see we might finish
our dinner and go off to a theatre.
We lire not likely to henr nny more
to-night, and all this mystery and
worry is beginning to get on my
nerves. What do yuu wiy to an hour
or two at the Gaiety."
Venner pleaded for a few moments
delay. So far as he was personally
concerned he felt very unlike the
frivolity uf the typical musical comedy i but still, be had finished his!
dinner by this time anil was not disposed to he churlish. Fenwiek had
now completed his repast also, and
Was sip|itng his coffee in an amiable
frame .if mind, heedless apparently of
business worries of nil kinds.
At the name moment a waiter eame
into the room and advanced lo the
millionaire's table with u small parcel
in his hand.
"A letter for von. sir. An express
letter which has just nrrived. Will
you he good enough to sign the re-
"Confound  the   people,"    Fenwick
!;rowled. "Can't yon leave me alone
or half an hour when J am having
my dinner? Take it up to my room.
You sign it. Vera."
"I'll sign it, of course," Vera replied. 'But don't you think you hnd
better open the parcel? It may be of
some importance, People don't usually send express letters at this time of
night unless they are urgent. Or,
shall I open it for you?"
The waiter had gone by this time,
taking the receipt for thc letter with
him. With a gesture Fenwick signified to Vera that she might open the
parcel. Sh,* cut the string and opened the flat packet disclosing a small
object In tissue paper inside. This
ahe handed to Fenwick who tore the
paper off leisurely. Then the decorous silence of the room was startled
by the sound of an oath uttered in
tones of intense fury.
"Curse the thing!" Fenwick cried
His yellow face was wet and ghastly
now.   The big purple veins stood out
like cords on his forehead.    "Am  I
j never to be free from the   terror of
I this mystery?      Where, did it come
j from?   How could it be possible when
the very mnn I have most reason to
dread is no longer in a position "
The speaker broke off suddenly, as
if conscious that he was betraying
himself. The little object in the tissue pnper lny on the table in such a
position that it was impossible for
Venner or Gurdon to see what it wns,
but they could give a pretty shrewd
gueis. Venner looked Inquiringly at
his friend.
"Well, what do you suppose it is?"
he nsked.
"Personally, I have no doubt what-
ever as to what It is," Gurdon said.
"I am as sure as if I held the thing
in my hand nt the present moment.
It is the second finger which nt some
time or nnother was attached to Fenwick's hand,"
"You've got it," Venner said. "Upon my word, the further we go with
this thing the more complicated it
becomes. No sooner do we clear up
one point than a dozen fresh ones
arrive. Now, is not this amazing?
We know perfectly well that the man
whom we have to cnll Bntes has been
kidnapped by our interesting friend
opposite, nnd yet here the second
warning arrives just as if Bntes were
(till free fci carry out his vengeance.
What ean one mnke of it?"
"Well, the logicnl conclusion is that
Bates has an accomplice. I fail to
see any other way of accounting
for it."
Fenwick still sat there mopping his
heated face nnd turning n disgusted
eye upon the little object on the table.
He seemed to be terribly distressed
nnd upset, though there wns nothing
like the scene on the previous occhs
ion, and doubtless few diners besides
Venner and Gurdon knew that anything out of the ordinary wns tailing
place there. But they were watohirg
everything carefully; they noted Fenwick's anxious fnce, they could henr
his stentorious breathing. Though he
had dined so freely he called for
brandy now, a lnrge glass of -which
he drank without any addition whatever. Then his agitation became lesB
uncontrollable, a little naturnl color
crept into his cheeks. Without glancing at it he slipped the little object
on the table Into his pocket and rose
more or less unsteadily to his feet.
"I hnve hnd *a shock." he muttered.
"I don't deny that I have hnd a terrible shock. You don't understand it
Vera, nnd I hope you never will. I
wish I had never touched thnt accursed mine. I wish it had hen fathoms under tbe sea beiore I heard
of it, but the mischief has b°en done
now and I shall have to go on to the
end. You oan stay here if you like—
as to me, I am going to my own
room. I want to be alone for a bit
and think this matter out.'"
Fenwick lurched across the room
with the nir of a man who is more
or less intoxicated, though his head
was clear enough and his faculties
undimmed. Still, his limbs were
trembling under him and he groped
his wny to the door with the aid of
a tnble here and there. It wns per-
Imps n rnther risky thing to do, but
Venner immediately crossed over nnd
took the sent vacnted by Fenwick.
Vera welcomed him shyly, but it was
palpable that she was ill at ease.
She would have risen had not Venner detained her.
"Don't you think you are very imprudent?" she said. "Suppose he
should change his mind and come
back here again?"
"I don't think there is much chance
of that," Venner said grimly. "Fenwick will be only too glad to be by
himself for' a bit. But tell mc, dear.
est, whit was it that gave him such
a shock?"
"I don't understand it. nt nil," Vera
snid. "lt wns something to do with
tint dreadful mine and the vengeance
connected with it. This is ihe second time the same thing hns happened within the Inst few dnys and I
fear that it wil] culminate sooner or
later ill some fenrful tragedy. I have
sonic ha/.y i'l-n of the old leifend,
but I hnve almost forgotten what it
"I don't think you need worry
about thnt," Venner said. "Though
it will have tu be spoken uf again
when the whole thing is cleared up;
but now I wish to talk to you on
more personal mutters Bid I understand Fenwick to say that he was
Inking 11 large house somewhere in
"Thnt is his intention, I believe,"
Vera replied. "I understand II is a
large dull place in the heart, of the
country. Personally I am not looking forward to it with the least V'en-
sure. Things nre bad enough here in
London, but there is always the comfortable feeling that one is protected
here, whereas in a lonely neighborhood the feeling of helplessness grows
very strong."
"You are not likely to be lonely or
neglected," Venner smiled. "As soon
ns 1 have definitely ascertained where
you are going, Gurdon and myself
will follow. It is quite necessary that
we should be somewhere near you;
but, of course, if you object "
But Vera wns not objecting. Her
face flushed with a sudden happiness.
The knowledge thnt the man she loved wns going to be so near her filled
her with a sense of comfort,
"Don't you think it will be dangerous?" she asked.
"Not in the least." Venner sai.l.
"Don't forget thai I nm a stranger
to Mark Fenwick, whioh remark ap
plies with equal force to Gurdon. And
if we take a fancy to spend a month
or two hunting in the neighborhood
of Canterbury, surely there is nothing
suspicious in that. I am looking forward to the hunting as a means by
which we may manage to get some
long rides together. And even if Fenwick does find it out, ii will be easy
to explain to him that you made my
acquaintance on the field of sport."
Vena whispered, "I may be wrong,
of course, but I feel that strange
things nre going to hnppen, nnd that
I oha'l need your presence to giv»
nie  courage."
Vera might Have said more, but a
waiter came into the room at the
same moment with an intimation to
the effect that Mr. Fenwick deeired
to speak to her. She flitted away
now, and there was nothing for it
but for Venner to fall in with Gurdon's suggestion as to a visit to the

when going out to dine. Substantia
spoons they were, too, not used tor
mincing bites, but half-grown Indies
with oviform bowls and square shanks
Only persons of wealth could afford
During the reign of Henry VIII. the
apostle spoon came into vogue. At the
top of the shanks were small figure'
of the apostles and in the days when
they were made it became the custom
to give a set of 13, including one with
an effigy of the Christ, to brides. It
was considered generous, however, to
give the wedded pair two spoons, one
for each, with their initials plainly
marked, so there would be no confu
sion at fushiouable tables. There were
nlso spoons which were a combination
of marrow borer for handle and just
plain siioon for the bowl.
How lhe Koundheads rebelled against
the religion of the Catholics is shown
by spuuus from which the saints have
been chopped. This made the shanks
hard lo hold and gradually a concession tu ornament was made by flattening tbe shanks at the end. This lorm
developed into the modern spoon with
its widetopped handle. In the past
two hundred years spoons have varied
little in form.

It would seem that Zam-Buk, the
famous healing balm we hear so highly spoken of everywhere, is particularly useful in the family circle. A
report sent by Mrs. E. Davey, 786
Ellicc Ave., Winnipeg, will illustrate
this. She says: "My little boy, of
three, while ploying, fell from a high
verandah to the ground, cutting his
forehead badly. Instead of calling a
doctor who would undoubtedly have
put in a number of stitches, I bathed
the wound well, and applied Zam-
Buk. The little fellow, although suffering keenly, soon had relief from
his pain. In the course of three
weeks, by applying Zam-Buk daily,
the wound was nicely healed.
"Since then I have also used
Zam-Buk for a boil which came on
my check, and which proved very
painful and looked unsightly. Zam-
Buk soon drew the boil to a head
and it then quickly banished it.
"Another time my baby was scalded on her left thigh and calf of leg
with boiling water. Directly it was
done I thought to use Zam-Buk, and
spreading some on lint I wrapped up
the baby's limb. Next morning she
rested much easier and I applied a
fresh bandage with Zam-Buk. I kept
this, treatment up daily, and was rewarded by seeing a great improvement eaeh time I dressed the wound.
In a very short space of time the
scalds were all nicely healed.
"I cannot recommend this wonderful healing preparation too highly for,
family use, and I have suoh great
faith in its healing powers that my
house is never without a box."
For all skin injuries and diseasus,
piles, eczema, salt rheum, and face
sores, Zam-Buk is absolutely unequalled. 50c. box all druggists and

Yeu   Literally  Take   Up  Your  Bed
Wherever You Go.
You are supposed to carry your own
beddinfc with you just as you carry
your own toothbrush. In the trains—
and there are very lonjj train journey*
by slow trains in India—in the guest
houses of the native princes, in camp,
of course, always, and in the hotel*
and inns your own bedding is a necessity. Indeed, you can scarcely carry
too much in India if you wish to be
comfortable. All sorts of clothing
from fur coats to the thinnest linen,
all sorts of hats from a Cap to a pith
helmet, a spirit lamp, a folding table
and chair, a small amount of tinned
or bottled food and a supply of mineral water for the train, a large supply of linen and under-clothing, for
one changes often, and the laundry
work is done by beating on flat stones.
The changes of temperature from noon
till midnight are startling. One must
give up cold baths and take to tepid
or hot water and be careful indeed
what and how much one eats and
drinks—no alcohol before sunset, and
very little then, and the plainest and
most nourishing food.
In this land, as large almost as the
whole of Europe, there are only a few
large cities where one can buy any
of the luxuries or comforts of life outside the obvious, and what you need
you must carry with you. On a large
scale you do what the native does—
you carry your household gods aud
goods about with you.
How differently "pick up your bed
and walk" sounds in your ears when
you see a whole population of hundreds of millions actually carrying
their beds with them whenever they
move. Why should one take heed as
to what one shall eat or drink or wear
when a handful -of rice, a thimbleful
of water and a loin cloth sufilce? The
group of servants in front of their
master's door at the hotel or the hundreds of families I have seen traveling by train, by bullock cart or even,
on foot have squeezed and sifted life'*

Goldsmith,  M.D.
The lovable character of the author
of "The Vicar of Wakefield" shine*

which Richard Ashe King has incorporated in his biography of Goldsmith.
Goldsmith, who set up as a physician on the Bankside, Southwark,
anticipated modern therapeutics in
recognizing that every sick man is a
special case, demanding ipec.al
He was once called to a poor patient who plainly stood in greater need
of food than of physic. The tenderhearted doctor put all the money li*

"The Whitecoati."
When the first Duke of Newcastle
•et about raising a regiment for the
king in the civil war his men were
known as "Whitecoats." The reason
of the nickname L told in a letter
from the duchess, which is printed
in the life of the duke:
"My lord, being resolved to give
them new liveries and there not tie-
ing red cloth enough to be had, took
up so much of white as would serve
to clothe them, desiring withal their
patience until he got it dyed, but
they, impatient of stay, requested my
lord that he would be pleased to let
them have it undyed a* it was, prom,
ising they themselves would dye it
in the enemies' blood. Which request
my lord granted them, and irom that
time they  were called "Whitecoati."
Keep Your Coat Collar Cltan.
Often the collar of a coat begins to
look shabby when the coat itself is
still quite fresh, and it is wonderful
what a difference a thorough cleaning
will make.
First of all take a piece of clean
rag, dip it in spirits ot turpentine and
rub the collar thoroughly with it.
Leave it for ten minutes, and tlu n ruh
it again with the turpentine and
scrape > it carefully to remove any
loose dirt.
Next sponge it with a l.ttle alcohol
or chloroform and keep wiping it until it is almost dry. Hang it up in
an airy place for an hour or two, and
you will be delighted with tho resu.t.
How te Make Paper Stick.
In papering a room which has hitherto been whitewashed it is not easy
to make the paper adhere satisfactorily. The experiment should be n mini forming the paste with skiniinilk
instead ol water. The milk must, however, be carefully skimmed to that
every drop ol cream has been removed, the whey of separated milk being
the best for the purpose. The paste
must be scalded well and should oa

A NUMBER, of the more enterprising towns in this section of the
province hnve had clenning-np days
this spring, nnd ns a further incentive lo the citizens to beautify their
premises, free shade and ornamental
trees have been distributed by the
municipalities. This is a policy
that is worthy oMmitation.
Vancouver enjoys the distinction
of being the only city in the world in
which Henry George's single tax
doctrine is literally applied to the
management of civic affairs, and the
city is obtaining a great deal of free
advertising for ils progressiveness in
being the,flrst municipality to adopt
this piinciple. All improvements
in that city are absolutely free from
taxation, the required revenue being
ruised from taxing tbe land alone.
A tremendous impetus in building
operations is said to be directly
traceable to this policy, which is
a''0 given credit for much of Vancouver's rapid growth in recent

War is unpopular because this
is tbe twentieth century, and barbarism is on the decline. Other
causes haying tending diminish interest in the military profession are:
The increasing lack of interest shown
by the people in martial parades,
the hostility of the,banks, the increase in wages everywhere except
in the army, and the opportunity
offered by the Latin'republics to see
ourselves ns posterity wjll see us.
The military expenditures of powers
—England, America, • Germany,
France, Austria, Russia nnd Japan
—in time of peace (1909 1910)
amounted to $994,303,000 forthe
army, and JS09,538,000 for the
navy. If all, the expenditures for
forts, fortifications, pensions and the
like, which are the result of wars,
armies and navies, were included,
these figures would be greatly enlarged. Some authorities, for instance, have estimated that 75 per
cent of the government's expenditures in America are directly and
indirectly due to miritarism. The fig- ■

made by R. M. Winslow, provincial
horticulturist, steps are being taken
by the provincial government to establish a comprehensive system of
market reporting for the benefit of the

be stationed in tho chief distributing
markets, and from telegraphic reports
sent to Victoria bulletins wil] be issued to affiliated associations, thus
keeping them posted to within twenty-

6 Year Old Girl Cured of

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 were frequent and uncontrollable, especially at uight. Her stomach was weak and her appetite poor.
This caused her to huve frequent
headaches, and the least exertion
would tire her.

The Lloyd-George budget in Great
Britain was called "the people's budget" because it was intended to benefit the many, ar.d riot the privileged
few. The reciprocity tariff is a people's budget for Canada. It is in
tended to bring into closer touch the
toiler who produces food and the
toiler who consumes food. It does
not find favor with the privileged
classes, for it lessens their power of
taking toll from food as it passes-frnni
the toiler in the field to the toiler in
the factory. The Lloyd George budget triumphed in Englaud because the
people saw it at work. Eftorts wefe
made to scare the people, to convince
them that it would ruin the country.
But the budget went into operation,
and its practical benefits were so great
that the house of lords abandoned
their opposition, and today they are
sorry they began the fight. If the
people's budget of Canada goes into
effect, there will be a similar experience. Those who are now predicting
ruin, annexation, commercial and industrial chaos, will be silenced. The
workers on the farm and the workers
in the factories will have enjoyed the
benefits of f.-eedom, will not surrender them, and will assert their Tights
at the polls. The opponents of reciprocity are making a tremendous outcry today, because they know that
this is their last chance If they can
influence either Ottawa or Washing-.
ton to prevent the ratification of the
agreement, their interests will be safe,
and they can continue to pose as defenders of their country. If the measure goes into operation, their predictions will be falsified, and t*ne masses
of the people, in Canada and the
United States, will make it forever
impossible to restore the taxes that
hurt the farmer and the consumer by
checking the production and distribution of food.—Toronto Star.

It would seem from these experiments that man is indeed superior to
all mechanism; with the very slight
exception that he always wastes inj
ergy during the first five minutes of
work before regaining his equilibrium.
It would seem that Monday's hu
man labor is the most inferjo-i, antl
Tuesday's the most superior, owing
to the curious action of Sunday as a
rest day; the Monday lassitude of the
French workingman is proverbial.
And it is found that the workman

keen interest among scientttts
The relation between fatigue and
accidents receives much more attention in Europe than here, as do all
matters relating to the conservation
of human energy and the safety of thu
workingman. The relation between
fatigue and accidents has indeed been
noted in practically all forms of hu-
many energy. Rank clerks make
most of their -mistakes late in the
afternoon, and this is said to have had
something to do with the early closinsr
of such institutions. Bankers, at any
rate, have had the sense to note the
mistakes of their employees are likely
to prove expensive.        -

O fatal gift! What cruel touch,
At once too little and too much;
The spark that never is a fire,
The hope that ends in vain desire.
The eye to see and understand,
III served by will, nr tongue, or hand;
The eager heart that chafes to find
Life shower her gifts upon the blind.
And yet, O bruised and baffled heart,
Thine, after all, the better part;
What toil can win; iviliatgold can buy
The deathless spark,the unclouded eye?
These ara thy birthright; these.indeed,
Approve thee of the royal seed;
And these shall s«t thee, soon or late,
A king, within thy palace gate.

In the spring the system needs toning up. To be healthy and strong
you must have' new blood, just ns
the tn>es must have new sap to renew their vitality. Nature demands
it, and without this new blood you
will feel weak and languid—you may
have twinges of rheumatism or the
sharp stabbing pains of neuralgia
Often there are disfiguring pimples or
eruptions ort the skin. In other eases
there is merely a feeling of tiredness
and a variable appatite. Any of these
are signs that the blood is out of
order—that the indoor life of winter
has lessened your vitality. What is
needed to put you right is a tonic,
and in all the world of medicine
there is no tonic can equal Dr. Wil
Hams' Pink Pills. These Pills actually make new, rich, ret) blood—your
greatest need in the spring. This new
blood drives out disease, clears the
skin and makes weak, easily tired
men, .women and children, bright,
active and strong. You can prove
this by your neighbors for there is
not a nook or corner in this great land
where some weak, ailing man or woman has not been made well and
strong by this great medicine. Mr.
H. Wilson, Stonewall, Man., says:
"Some years ago I was run down,
languid and depressed and felt as
though I was only fitted for life's scrap
heap. A friend who had great faith
in Dr. Williams' Pink Pills gave me a
box. Before they were all used I felt
some better, and thus encouraged got
a further supply, and it was not many
weeks until I was again enjoying my
former good health. I think Dr. Williams' Pink Pills a boon, to every
weak person."
Sold by all medicine dealers or by

A Chinese Episode and lit
Horrible EMect

A whole year passed after Nelson's
return from Asia before be found himself again treading an orleutal street
and rubbing elbows wltb slant eyed,
blue bloused Chinese. His present position In tbe custom bouse made It
necessary tbat be sbould visit a well
known silk Importer, wbose place of
buslnesa lay ln the heart ot San Francisco's reconstructed Chinatown.
Jay Nelson had been glad enough to
. eliminate all memory of bis last year
In China. Tbere bad been one horrible Incident from which he bad fled,
but whose shadow had lurked In the
background of bis daily life since hla
return to America. In broad daylight
be had laughed at the fears* tbat pursued his flrst sleepless, fear baunted
nights. After awhile the fear gave
place to a sense ot security fostered
by tbe practical workaday happenings
of bis busy life.
Today, however, as he passed aiuug
Dupont street and turned Into a narrower thoroughfare tbere burst npon
bim tbe significant fact that this part
of a great city was but a fragment of
tbe old eastern world after all.
He had to pause once or twice and
Inquire his way, for the house of tbe
Importer was set In the heart of the
web ot streets and alleys. Tben wben
bis goal lay but a few yards ahead
tbere sprang Into sudden view, bobbing along In the trowd before bim, a
certain green nnd gold paper parasol.
tbe meaning of wblcb was all too
clear to Jay Nelson, Be had a vague
realization that tbis emblem of an <-ld
horror might have been evolved from
bis own morbid fancy.
He pressed forward, eager to stretch
forth his hand and prove that Ihe
Japanese umbrella was a thing of air.
was an optical Illusion. But slways It
danced before bim like a wlll-o'-the-
wisp, now showing a glint of gold end
green and tben melting Into a. doi,en
Illusive tints.
Where It went there be too mast
follow until be could prove by scraal
contact wltb Ils surface that It was a
creation ot bis fancy and not the
dreaded emblem of tha White Brotherhood.
It drew bim on down Into ibe very
bowels of tbe earth.
Tbe paper umbrella collapsed and
wu cast aside, wbile the hearer turned to confront Nelson Hen tbe latter awoke from bis mmce-llke state
•nd stared flrst at I .» strange tar*
that confronted him. tben aboui the
•mall dungeon-like room, empty of fur
nlture and reeking wltb foul ouors
•nd lighted by ■ single swinging oil
lamp. Nelson's gate came back to tbe
face of the Chinese, and he shivered
•lightly, for tbe face was thst of a
member of tbe dreaded order-the sign
w»s written on tbe man's brow.
Instantly Nelson whipped off his
coat holding It beforo Mm as a shield
■nd backed lo tb* stairway leading
"Hold a moment" said tbe Chinese
In the Cantonese dialect; "1 am not
'"Who else?" demanded Nelson
aharply In tbe same tongue.
"The brotberbood-st eacb stair

contemplate flight." relurned tbe Chinese Imperturbably.
"What do you want with me?"
"Command of the big brother that
yon be brought before him for trial."
"He came on from Hongkong to
■rek meV"
Tbe Chinese cackled shrilly. Tben
tie spat contemptuously. "The brotherhood Is everywhere. Csptaln Leeson

"Wby do yon call me by Captain
Leeson's name?" questioned Nelson
"Because yon' an ha."
"Suppose I am not?"
"Tou are!" asserted tbe man roughly. "Tb* brotherhood does not mske

The otber laughed derisively. "I
waa told you would claim tbat nam*.
Nelson died tbat nlgbt"
"Ab." cried Nelson suddenly, "yon
•re tb* big brother! This Is tbe tribunal. Tou are alone; yon thought to
fool me; see yon later, Tal Uiol" Hs
started to leap op tb* stain and then
stopped short
Tal Laao mad* no move to arrest bla
flight He merely folded bla long claw
tlpiied Augers Into either capacious
sleeve and smiled widely.
II waa tbis smile that baited Nelson's
departure, tbe smlla and a certain bussing whisper tbat sang down tb* *ttli»
way and bore warning on Its brents.
Again be turned to the Chinese.
"Have lt over wltb-tbls court of
yours! Be quick, for I have business
to attend to—matters of Importance."
"Very good. Captain Leeson," commented the man called Tal Laao. "hollow me."
He led tbe way to a shadowy corner
and pushed open a door into another
dimly lighted room. At a long table
sat seven men. three on either side
and one at tbe end. At tbe farther
•nd ot tbe table tbere stood a wide
armed empty chair. Except for a luw
swung lamp above tbe table tbe room
waa devoid of otber furnishing.
"Captain Leeson," be announced In
• low voice, "on trial for betraying secrets of tbe White Brothers."
"''aptatn Leeson died, as you all
know," said Nelson sternly. "1 saw
bim die, killed by your orders. He
died tn tbe street of"—
"Silencer' menaced tb* leader. "He
claims to be Nelson, tbe one wbo died
tbat night"
Tbe seven nodded In unison, bnt did
not remove tbeir gate from Nelson's
angry face.
He kept silence now, briefly reviewing tbe strange events tbat bad snatched him from tbe busy streets of tbe
city into as dismal a den of murderers
as one mlgbt hope to tind along the
water front of any Chinese city.
Before his eyes tbere flashed a picture of bis last year ln Cblna. Tben
be bad been ln tbe diplomatic service
of bis country. Leeson, bis friend, an
Englishman In tbe British employ at
Hongkong—Inspector of health or something of that sort—bad Interested Nelson In bis establishment of a leper colony down In Anam.
It was Leeson's ambition to clean
out the lepers bidden In the city, to
roof tbem out from tbeir places ot concealment and transport tbem to tbe
colony where preparations had been
made for their segregation, where
tbeir cases sbould be studied and
modern methods be employed.
It happened tbat the afflicted onea
looked on tbe Idea of banishment with
distaste. Tbey cared little to be herded together In a foreign province far
from friends and familiar scenes.
Tbey cared nothing whatever for tb*
benefits tbat mlgbt accrue to posterity
through tbeir segregation.
Leeson's efforts met witb little success, and be brought tbe law to bis
aid. Tbua he gained permission to
capture the afflicted ones, and so bis
colony prospered for awhile. Tben
tbere waa formed against him the society of the White Brothers, created to
protect tbe lepera scattered throughout
the city from Leeson's agents. Eacb
one bore some mark of tbe disease,
and tbey had some otber emblem by
wblcb tbey might be known to eacb
otber If tbe mark ot tb* disease waa
not plain enough. And tbis emblem
was tbe green and gold paper umbrella, with Ita snaky twisting golden
dragon colling In and out of tb* green
painted bamboo shoots.
Nelson remembered tbe flrst time ha
had seen them—that nlgbt of Leeson's
carefully planned expedition Into a
suspected quarter. It whs ai night,
and red lanterns hnd lighted the street
down Its crooked length Suddenly
tbere bad burst upon them and tb*
three agents who accompanied Leeson
a hideous babel of cracked voices; a
horrible spectacle of ghastly faces; a
leprous mob that leered and Jeered at
tbem; tbat drove tbem point by point
toward tbe end of the street of lepers;
a yelling crowd tbat received tbe bullets from their revolvers snd died
noisily; a filthy crew tbat tried to
toucb tbem, tbnt longed to render
tbem as loathsome aa Itself.
Leeson bud been killed, arid Nelson
tried to forget tbe sight as tbe rest ot
tbem got away. Tbe next duy he led
a party back to tbe street, but it wns
deserted. Even poor Leeson's body
bud disappeared. After tbis outbreak
the matter went under lhe supervision of a large medical corps, aud the
colony nt Anam was augmented hy
several hundred cases. Nelsou resigned from tbe service and went borne,
sii'kened of Ibe whole dubious web ot
oriental lire, thankful thnt ne hud escaped oouth.t—that be was clean.
Now they hnd round him out they
would take tbeir revenge for bis betrayal ot tbeir outbreak. It pleased
tbem to call bim by Leeson's name.
As Leeson be would probably die In
this bole In lb* ground under Hsu
Nelson determined to force some Immediate action from tbe men wbo bad
sprung up In tbis faraway city to call
him to account for bis setting tb*
hounds of Is w upon their trail. Alibis
hideous dreama of tbe past year aeemed
to bave been realised In the Strang*
events of tbis day that would undoubtedly be bis last on earth.
It bad been a strange day. and even
now. face to face wltb death-fur tb*
presence of these Whit* Brothers
meant nothing less—be seemed to b*
moving in a dream mora frightful tban
anything bis sleeping mind bsd conceived.
"Fir* ahead." be aaid recklessly;
"I'm not afraid of you. Com* on,
•very devil's Imp of youl" Hs flashed
oat tbe revolver he always carried just
aa tbey arose In a body and earn* at
bim, a ghastly company wltb stretching, clawing fingers and fiendish eyes.
Tben Jay Nelson awoke. He sat up
ln bed. bis brow dripping sweat and
his heart pounding wltb excitement
for once more be had dreamed of tbe
Japanese umbrella and tbe horrible
band whose emblem lt was. Tbis was
tbe worst dream of all, and be murmured devout thanks that It bad been
a dream.
Sitting there with the morning sunshine streaming into the room and a
fresh breeze from tbe bay ruffling his
hair. Nelson saw tbe early newspaper
slid under bis door. Eager to be in
toucb wltb tbe commonplaces of everyday life, be fetebed It and read th*
headlines. After awhile, tn a corner
of the sheet be read^that the Hongkong authorities were satisfied tbat
they bud rid tbat city of Its lepers.
The White Brotherhood bad been
broken up, and most of Its members
were In Anam colony. Tbe leader, Tal
Laao, was dead. Captain Leeson's
deatb had been avenged.
Jay Nelson weut forth that morning
a care free man to interview the silk
importer In Chinatown. At last he waa
emancipated from fear. H* would
dream no more.
The Pet Cat
Cats need careful feeding, and It Is
not generally believed that they can
and will (If taught) eat green vegetables. Tbey should be given tbese
In tbe form of cabbage, cauliflower
and asparagus once every day, and
tbat at. noon.
Strangely enough, the pet caf s heaviest meal, consisting of four ounces of
meat should be given at night and lt
should Invariably be run through a
chopper. Potatoes are excluded fron.
the diet of all well cared for cats, but
sardines are given twice a week and
only ln cold weather.
Cats have Individual tastes tbat may
be gratified within reason. Tbe ordinary American cat—and lt Is more satisfactory tban tbe Angora—may even
be given peaches or currants or cocoa-
nut These are mentioned because
tbey were tbe peculiar dainties most
liked by s cat of the writer's acquaintance.
All of tbe cat's milk Is boiled and
given warm and well diluted, and last,
but very Important a dally supply of
fresh water and green grass la absolutely necessary.
Where "Cranford" Was Written.

will doubtless be of great Interest.
Tbe centenary of Mra. Haskell's

character studies for "Cranford," In
which she reproduced to tbe life tbe
everyday existence of the "maiden ladles and widows of limited means"
who formed the social life of tbe village.

Some Notable Examples of Prevision
In Sleep.
Considerable interest has been taken in the story of a dream which
come true, the person concerned being the wife of a Calcutta business
man. While in Scotland, where she
was on a visit home, news came from
India that her husband had been
drowned, and as the snd intelligence
was about to be gradually broken *o
her she immediately declared that
ahe knew her huBband waa dead, as
she hud been warned of his death in
a dreom. The circumstance is curious, and difficult to explain. Whatever the explanation, this case ol a
dream coming true is only one of
many well authenticated insiunecs.
Perhans the best known o' all is
that which Lady William Russell,
mother of the ninth Duke of Bedford, used to tell about the death of
her uncle, the first Marq'iis of Hastings, who had brought her up. Lady
William dreamed tha* she saw a
long hall, in which was a couch,
round which a number ol female
figures were standing in on attitude
of grief. There was nobody on the
couch, but she seemed to meet her
uncle, who embraced her.
She remarked to Lord Hastings
that he was terribly cold; whereupon
he replied. "Did you not know I was
dead?" In her dream, she asked
how it looked on the other side, and
Lord Hastings told her quite different from what was imagined, "and
far more beautiful." Then she
awoke. Much upset. Lady William
Russell told her dream; and some
dnys later news came from Malta,
where Lord Hastings was governor,
that her uncle had died on a couch
in a hall at the time her dream occurred.
The third Lord Waterford, husband of Louisa, Lady Waterford,
was able to verify a story of s dream
coming true. Talking one day with
the landlord of the inn in the village
close lo Curraghmore, a man rush
up and said there had been a murder on Ihe hills. Then it must be the
little one, said the landlord; at
which Lord Waterford became very
susnicious, not unnaturally. The
landlord proceeded to explain that in
the nielli he dreamt that two men
had come to the inn, and that the
taller of the two had murdered the
shorter with a very curious knife.
He told his dream to his wife, who
laughed at him. But, to his horror
the men he had seen while asleep
came to the inn, and one used the
curious knife to cut up his food.
They left, and soon afterwards news
of the murder arrived. 8eareh was*
made for a tall man answering to
the landlord's description, and one
was quickly arrested. In prison he
confessed he had murdered his short
Dreams have been more than once

the Ruthcrfords of Edgerston. in
Roxburghshire. Dreaming that an
aunt, who had brought her up anil
who lived in Kifeshire, was going tn
be murdered, she. very much against
her husband's wish, went off to see
her relative. When she arrived the
door was opened by the man who.
accord;ni! to her dream, was gnini; tu
commit the murder. Mrs. Rutherford slept in her aunt's room, and
arranged fnr her two cousins to be in
the adjoining room. And the precaution wns justified, for in the niplit
the butler tried to enter, hut Mrs
Rutherford threw open the door, nnd
called her cousins. The man hnd a

endorsed by a large body of the Republicans, the bill to put the agreement in force was adopted with no
amendments and in almost the identical form in which it passed the hou«e
in tho last session preceding this session. The passage of the bill marked
the close of a fight that had raged in
the house for six days. During that
time the safety of the measure was at
no time threatened, but the Democratic and Republican leaders working
for its passage conceded all the opportunity desired by its opponents fur debate and protest against it. Following the same policy, amendments were
admitted in the house for almost every
section of the bill, and in each case
they were rejected by an overwhelming vote given by the friends of the
measure on both sides of the house on
the theory that any amendment
would nullify it.

The Breathcable Remedy for Catarrh.
The rational way to combat catarrh
is the Hyomei way, via., by breathing.
Scientists for years have been agreed
on this point, but failed to get an antiseptic strong enough to kill catarrh
germs and not destroy the tissues of
the membrane at the same time, un-.
til the discovery of Hyomei (pronounced Higli-oiiie.)
Hyomei is the most powerful yet
healing antiseptic known. Breathe it
through the inhaler over the inflamed
and germ-ridden membrane four or
Ave times a day, and in a few days the
germs will 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
Co., Ltd., Fort Erie, Ont. Hyomei
