Great Notbern Magnate Dis-! to the farmer.
cusses Agricultural     !  "At ,he NationR
Matters
Practical farming, the work of
agricultural colleges, the scarcity of
competent farm labor, the diminishing food supply and other economic
questions are discussed freely by
James J. Hill, chairman of the
board of directors of the Great
Northern railway, in a letter to
David Brown, chairman of the Spo
kime committee of the Nations
Country Life congress.
Mr. Hill endorses the aims and
purposes of tbe nation wide farm
betterment movement,, to be launched in Spokane, November 23 lo 29,
and snys it will be a real service by
obtaining authoritative Information
which it would be possible for the
farmer of the country to put into
actual use, adding, among other
things:
"Always the first and most important matter to reach the individ
mil farmer and show bim what he
himself can do on his land. The
most highly educated agricultural
professor or teacher, when placed
upon a farm, can do little mors, if
anything, beyond adapting his crop,
to the soil. To select good seed and
to properly cultivate the land—thai
is all within thc reach of the aver
"age fanner.
"He can or sbould know whal
crop hia land is best adapted to ri 9
He can test his ieed by taking a
hundred grains of each kind nnd
planting them in a box of average
soil and |_flace the box in a place
where the sun will shine upon it.
The number of grains that grow will
give him the percentage of good seed
from which be will get results. lie
sbould use every particle of barnyard manure as fertilizer and he
should prepare his seed bed by
thorough cultivation before plant
ing aud then it should be well .harrowed.
"That is practically all that thc
best informed agriculturist could do
under the same circumstances. If
the farmer is successful in raising
full crops I think it is fair to assume
that be can be trusted to improve all
his home surroundings and his social condition. If his farm work is
not well done and the result is poor
crops, the other work will not appeal
to bim nor can he afford to spend
much time or money on otber mul
tan. .
"Minn* of ihe men who discuss
agricultural subjects arc apt to talk
over the bends of their audience and
to talk about matters beyond the
reach of Ihe average farmer. Many
of our agricultural schools are more
engaged in turning out teachers
rather than farmers.

The following is the maximum

day deling the past neek, as recorded by the government thermom
elcron Cooper Bros.'ranch:
Educational
association meeting, last year, a
speaker - said: 'I recently heard a
young agricultural college graduate,
who had beeu placed iu charge of a
farm, deploie the fact that be and
others like bim could go through college and receive a bachelor's degree
in agriculture without anywhere,
either in high school or in college or
on a farm, learning how to plow, or
dig a ditch, or harness a horse, or
milk a cow.'
"Wbat will help a farmer most is
clearly to enable bim to   help   him
self, and this can be done by  showing him on bis own farm.   We have
tried many methods and fouud tbal
the only results   worth   while   have
been obtained by showing the fui n-
er  through   tbe   preparation  of  a
small plot of ground, say five acres,
bow to cultivate his laud.
Manual   training   would   never
amount to anything if lbe pupil did
not actually   make  things, and the
same applied  to the cultivation ol
the farm."
Regarding the farmer being   interested   in   the   prosperity of   the
wage-earner and the business  man,
Mr. Hill says:
"Our agricultural  population  40
years ago was about 50 per   cent of
ihe entire population  of the -country.    It is now less than   one third.
Forty years ego the agricultural population had to raise  food  for  their
own mouths and for one additional
mouth.    Now we bave to raise food
for two additional mouths
"Relying upon our home market,
whicb was furnished mainly by tbe
agricultural population of our com
muiiily, we  had  stimulated industrials   until   we   had destroyed tbe
pro port ion between production   und
consumption, and the time is rapidly approaching, if  it is not already
here, when many of our industrials
will be compelled to seek  a  market
in other counties for  their   produc
tion or cease to produce.
"The scarcity of good farm  labor
today is felt by every farmer in  the
country, and the want  of it is com
palling him to limit his cultivation
practically to what can  be done by
mac
farm labor competent  or willing to
take  care  of  itock or milk a oow.

expects thnt a grade of 2 per cent to

but only ut great cost, ninny short
tunnels having to be driven.
Later a great seven-mile tunnel,
which will reduce the grade lo 1

suon will depend on circumstances.

CHAPTER XXVIII.
Explanations
Night was beginning to fight with
morning by he time thiit Venner returned to Merton Grange. There was
no one to be seen; the house was in
total darkness, so thut Venner placed
the motor in the stable and returned
tl hos own, rooms. On the whole, he
was disposed to congratulate himself
upon the result of his night's work.
It mattered very little to himself or
jnybody else what became of Fenwick, now he was once out of the way.
He was never likely to trouble them
again, ind as far as Venner could see,
he was now in a position openly to
claim his wife before all the world.
Despite his feeling of happiness,
Venner slept badly, and a little after
ten o'clock the next morning found
him back at Merton Grange. Evors
greeted him cordially, with the information that he alone was up as yet,
and that the others had doubtless
taken advantage of the opporunity to
get a good night's rest.
"And you will see, my dear fellow," he said, "how necessary such a
thing is. Goodness knows how long
it is since I went to bed with my
mind absolutely at rest. The same
remark applies with equal force to
Miss Le Fenu—I mean your wife."
"I can quite understand that,"
Venner said. "It has been much tbe
same with me, though I must confess that I was so happy last night
that I could not sleep at all. By
tbe way, have you any information
as to you father's movements? He
probably knows by this time that his
house has been given over to a gang
of swindlers."
"He does," Evors said, "I have
had a telegram from him this morning
to say that he will be home some
time in the course of the day; and,
to tell the truth, I am looking forward with some dread to meeting my
lather. But I think I shall be able
to convince him now that I am in
earnest, and that I am anxious to
settle down in the old place and take
my share in the working of the estate.
When my father sees Beth and knows
her story, I am sanguine that he will
give us a welcome, and that my adventures will be over.   I want him to
meet Beth down here, and last night Change'for the bettef 'in the poor

up to town today and fetch her sister.
By the way, what has become of your
friend—Gurdon, I think his name is?
yet told me why those two or three
room were furnished in the empty
house."
"Who told you about that?" Evors
asked.
"What a chap you are to ask questions ! We got into the empty house
after the so-called Bates was supposed to have been kidnapped, and to
our surprise we found that all that
fine furniture had vanished. There
! was no litter of stray or sign of removal outside, so we eame to the con-
| elusion that the stuff had been conveyed from one house to the other.
After a good deal of trouble we lit
upon a movable panel, and by means
of it entered the house where you
and Le Fenu were practically prisoners. We were on the premises when
you managed to get the better of
that man in the carpet slippers and
his companion; we heard all that took
place in the drawing-room between
Fenwick and Beth and Le Fenu. In
fact, we aided and abetted in getting
the police into the house without
causing any scandal. That was very
smartly done. But come, are you going to tell me the story of the empty
house, and why it was partly furnished?"
"I think I can come to that now,"
Evors said. "The whole thing was
born in the ingenious brain of Felix
Zary. He was going to lay some sort
of trap for Fenwick, but we shall
never know what it was now, because
Fate has disposed of Fenwick in
some other way. Now, won't you sit
down and have some breakfast with
me?"
At the same moment Vera came in.
Familiar as her features were and
well as Venner knew her, there was
a brightness and sweetness about her
now that he had never noticed before.
The cloud seemed to have lifted from
her face; her eyes were no longer sad
and sombre—they were beaming with
happiness.
"I am so glad you have come," she
said. "We want you to know all that
happened last night after you had
gone."
Venner explained that he knew
pretty well all that had taken place,
as be had been having it all out with
Evors. What he wanted now was to
get Vera to himself, and presently he
had his way.
"We are going for a long walk,
he said, "where   I   have   something
serious to say to you.   Now that you
have no longer any troubles on your
shoulders, -I can be very Arm with
you "
"Not just yet," Vera laughed.
"Later on you can be as firm as you
like, and we are not going for a long
walk, either. We shall just have time
to get to the station and catch the
11.15 to-Vietoria. I am going up to
London today to bring Beth down
here. I think the change will do her
good. Of course, we can't remain in
the house, so I have taken rooms for
the three of us at a farm close by.
When Beth has had everything explained to her and knows that the
man she loves is free, you will see a

I mean the fellow who fell down the
cellar trap and found himself landed
in the house in. Portsmouth Souare."
"Oh, Gurdon's all right," Venner
laughed. "I hope you will have the
chance of making his acquaintance
in the course of the day. You seem
to have been in Charles Le Fenu's
confidence for some time—tell me,
why all that mystery about the house
in Portsmouth Square? Of course, I
don't mean Le Fenu's reasons for calling himself Bates, and all that kind
of thing, because that was perfectly
obvious. Under the name of Bates
he was lying low and maturing his
plans for crushing Fenwick. As a
matter of fact, Fenwick was almost
too many for him. Indeed, he would
have been too many for him, if Gurdon and myself had not interfered
and given both of you a chance to
escape. It was a very neat idea of
Fenwick's to kidnap a man and keep
him a prisoner in his own house."
"Yes," Evors said. "And he used
his own house for illegal purposes.
But before I answer your question,
let me ask you one. Why was Gurdon prowling about Portsmouth
8quare that night?"
"That is quite easily explained,"
Venner replied. "I sent hiin. To go
bnck to the beginning of things. I
hnve to revert to the night wben I
first saw Mark Fenwick at the Grent
Empire Hotel, posing as a millionaire
nnd having for eonujnny a girl who
passed ns his dnughter. Seeing that
this psuedn Miss Fenwick wns my
own wile, you cnn imagine how interested I wns. She hns nlready told in
your bearing the reason why she left
me on our weilding day, nnd if I nm
snlisfied with those rensons it is nothing to do with nnyhody. As a mnt-
ter of fnct. I nm satisfied with them,
nnd there is no more to he said; but
when I rnn agninst Vera ngnin at
the hotel I knew nothin-' of past
events, and I made nn effort to find
out the cnuse of her apparently
strange conduct. In a way, he wns
fighting against me; she would tell
me nothing, and I had to find out
everything for myself. On the night
In question I sent Gurdon to Portsmouth Square, nnd he hnd the misfortune to betray himself."
"II nenrly ended in Mn death."
Evors snid, soberly. "Chnrles Le
Fenu wns very bitter just nhout thnt
time. You cnn quite understnnd how
it wns that he mi«took Gurdon for
one of Fenwick's spies. But wby did
he eo there?"
"He followed my wife, and there
you hnve tbe simrle exnlannlion of
the whole thing.   But you have not
matter with her mind, and when she
realizes her happiness she will soon
be as well as any of us. You will
come with me to London, Gerald?"
"My dearest girl, of course I will,'
Venner said. "I will do anything you
like. Let us get these things pushed
through as speedily as possible, so
thnt we cnn start on our honeymoon,
which has been delayed for a trifling
matter of three years, and you cannot say tbat I bave been unduly impatient !"
Vera raised herself on her toes and
threw her arms round her husband's
neck. She kissed him twice—there
were tears in her eyes, but there was
nothing but happiness behind the
leers, as Venner did not fail to
notice.
"You have been more than good,"
Bhe whispered. "Ab, if you only
knew how I have missed you, how
terrified I was lest you should tnke
me at my word and abandon me to
my fate, us you hnd every right to
do. And yet, nil the time I had a
curious feeling that you trusted me,
though I dnred not communicate with
you nnd tell you where you could
send me ns much ns a single line. I
was fearful lest a passionate appeal
from you should turn me trom my
purpose. You see, I had pledged myself to fight the buttle tor Beth and
her lover, nnd for the best pnrt of
three yenrs I did so. And the strangest part of it all is that you, my hus-
liunil, from whom I concealed everything, should be the very one who
eventually struck straight to the
heart of the mystery."
"Yes, that's nil right enough," Venner smiled, "but why could not you
have confided in me in the first instance? Do you think that I should
hsve refused to throw myself heart
and soul into the affair and do my
hest to help those who were dear to
you?"
"I suppose I lost my head," Vera
murmured. "But do not let us waste
to much time nt all, or we shall lose
three years; and do not let us waste
too much time sta all, or we shall lose
our trnin."
"Tbnt is bringing one back to earth
with a vengeance," Venner laughed.
"But come along and let us get all
the business over, and we can look
eagerly forward to the pleasure of afterwards."
(To be continued.)

FIRE EATERS.
Th* Trlek ef Breathing  Flames and
8parks From the Mouth.
Fire tricks were practiced In very
ancient times. The lirst known bre
breather was a Syrian slave named
Euuus. a lender in tbe Servile war in
Sicily, 130 B. 0. He pretended to hare
Immediate communication wltb the
gods. When desirous of Inspiring his
followers with courage he breaibeu
flames and sparks from bis mouth.
lu order to accomplish tbls feat Eu
nus pierced a nutshell at botb ends,
and. bavlng filled it wltb some burn
Ing substance, be put It In bis mouth
and breathed through lt Tbe same
trick Is performed today In a more
approved manner. Tbe performer roils
some flax or hemp luto a ball aboui
tbe size of *t walnut which be lets
burn until It is nearly consumed
Then he foils around It more Has
while It Is still burning. By tbls
means the Ore is retained In the ball
tor a long time. He slips tbls ball
Into his mouth unperceived and
breathes through It. His breath revives the Ore. and be sustains no In-
Jury so long as be lohales-ouiy tbrough
his nostrils.
Various theories hare been advsneed
to account for other feats ot this sort
performed by the ancients. An old
ordeal was tbe holding of a redhot
Iron by tbe accused, wbo was not
burned If he were Innocent Probably
some tiroiectlve paste was used on tbe
hands. Tbe peculiar property of
mineral salts, sucb as alum. In protecting articles of dress trom Ore bas

WhyShouldlUse
Cuticura Soap?
"There it nothing the matter
with my skin, snd I thought
Cuticura Soap was only for akin
troublei.-' True, it is for akin
troubles, but its great mission is
to prevent skin troubles. For
more than a generation its delicate emollient and prophylactic
properties have rendered it the
standard for this purpose, while
its extreme purity and refreshing
fragrance give to it all the advantages of the best of toilet soaps.
It is also invaluable in keeping
the hands soft and white, the hair
live and glossy, and the scalp
free from dandruff and irritation.
While its first cost is a few cents
more than that of ordinary toilet
soaps, it is prepared with such care
and of such materials, that it wears
to a wafer, often outlasting several
cakes of other soap, and making
its use, in practice, most economical. Cuticura Soap is sold by
druggists and dealers everywhere,
but the truth of these claims may
be demonstrated without cost by
sending to "Cuticura," Dept. ;M,
Boston, U. S. A., for a liberal sample cake, together with a thirty-two
page book on the akin and hair.

C. P. R. Operate New Lines
It is stated that in a short time the
entire line of the Canadian Pacific
Railway between Moose Jaw, Outlook,
Kerrobert and Macklin, in Saskatchewan, will be opened for traffic. Services have been operated for some
time at either end of the line between
Moose Jaw and Outlook and Macklin
and Kerrobert, but it was only last
month that the central portion of the
line between Outlook and Kerrobert
was completed.
It is now 267 miles from Moose Jaw
to Macklin,    and    construction work
i was started north of Outlook in May,
1910, The new line leaves Moose Jaw
in a northwesterly direction, and runs
through    a    rich    farming    country.
j Eventually it will form a junction
with the Lacombe-Castor Branch at
Kerrobert. When the whole line is
opened for traffic it will be a great
boon to all classes of traffic in Saskatchewan, for not only will the farmers along the right-of-way benefit, but
it will give the towns and cities, now
rapidly growing, in the vicinity of the
line, a direct new connection with the
main line of the C. P. R. to Moose
Jaw, Regina, Brandon, Winnipeg,
Minneapolis, St. Paul and Chicago.

NOT A GAME OF CHANCE.
The Jury Decided Thst Seven-up Wss
Purely Scientific.
One of Mark Twain's old time stones concerned tbe game ot seven-up.
or old sledge. Some Kentucky uoys
were arreated for playing this game
under the usual charge of playing a
game of chance. When tbey were
brought before tbe Judge tbeir lawyer
claimed that this game was nut a
game of chance, but was a gome of
science. Tbe court, puzzled, uaned for
a suggestion, and tbe lawyer declared
tbat If a Jury of six gamblers well acquainted wltb the game lu a sclentibo
way and six deacons be Impaneled
with a puck of cards their decision
ought to be determinative. So tbe story goe»:
"Tbere wns no disputing the fairness
of the proposition. Four deacons aud
the two dominies were sworn hi as
tbe 'chance' Jurymen, and six Inveterate old seren-up professors were
chosen to represent tbe 'science' side
of the Issue. They retired to tbe Jury
room.
"In abont two hours Deacon Peters
sent into court to borrow S3 from a
friend. In about two hours more
Dominie Miggles sent Into court to
borrow a 'stake' from a friend. During tbe next three or four hours the
dominie and tbe other deacons sent
Into court for small loans.
"The rest of the story can be told
briefly. About daylight the Jury came
In. and Deacon Job. tbe foreman, read
the following verdict:
'"We, the Jury ln the case of the
commonwealth of Kentucky versus
John Wheeler et al., bave carefully
considered the points of the case and
tested the merits of the several tneo-
rles advanced and do hereby unanimously decide that tbe game commonly known as old sledge, or seven-up.
Is eminently a game ot science and
not of chance, ln d<*monstrRtlon
whereof lt ts hereby and herein stated,
iterated, reiterated, set forth and
made manifest tliat during tbe entire
night tbe "chance" men never won a
game or turned a Jack, although both
feats were common and frequent to
the opposition, and furthermore in
support of this onr verdict we call attention to the significant fact that the
"chance" men are all broke and tbe
"science" men bave got the money,
tt Is the deliberate opinion of tbl* Jury
thnl the "chance" theory concerning
seven-up la a pernicious doctrine and
calculated to Inflict untold suffering
and pecuniary loss upon any community that takes stock In It.'"
SLEEPING   SICKNESS.
The Grip This Dreadful Disease Tskss
Upen Its Victim*.
The course of the dreadful disease,
sleeping sickness, It au extremely slow
one. Tbe first singe Is said to last a
year or more, and tbe cause of the disease may be In the blood long before
any symptoms whatever present themselves. Tbe patient ha* occasional
fever; Indeed, a disease hitherto called
Gambia fever has recently been recognized as the flrst stage of sleeping
sickness. It Is said that tbe swelling
of tbe lymphatic glands of the neck is
a characteristic early synipiom. Tbis
was known in 1SH.1 to Dr. Winterbot-
tom. win. state* that slave traders,
recognizing tbe symptom of a fatal
disease, would not buy slaves who bad
this glandular enlargement. The patient feels well and strung and Is nble
to go about bis usual occupations,
Tbe second stage Is Indicated by a
distinct change In the appearauce of
the patient. Hla expression grows
heavy snd dull; he becomes apathetic,
lies nrouud a great deal aud cannot
exert himself. With the progress of
tbe disease tbese symptoms become
more marked; walking and speech become dlfUcnlt aud finally impossible.
During the last week Ibe aufferer lies
In a state of complete coma, from
which the Illness derives its name.
Often during the second stage of the
disease tbe brain becomes affected,
and some of lbe patients try to run
away Into tbe forests or swamps,
where they die of exposure or starvation. To prevent this the relatives of
a sufferer frequently chain bim dowu
until tbe time comes wbeu he can uo
longer move.-McClure's Mugazlne.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 3,   1911
A friend—or foe—of The
Sun sends us an editorial clip-
pling from an eastern paper
Youth's Compaion in 1912
No other paper is quite like The
Youth's Companion. It takes in
half a million homes, where the
choice of reading is made with as
much care as the choice of friends.
For years The Companion hap enjoyed contributions by distinguished
men and women of Great Britain
and Canada. Among those already
engaged to write for the 1912 volume are General Baden-Powell, who
bas something of interest to say
about the Boy Scout movement, Sir
Harry Johnston, who recalls the
last of the Great South African hun

The Age of Electricity
"Thirty years ago," said a member of congress to a newspaper reporter, "1 walked six miles over a
but and dusty roud from my coun
try home to the county-sent to see u
circt-3 that advertised to have on ex
hibition a light made by electricity.
There were scores of others in our
in ighborlio.id who went, not to see
the circus, but to get a sight of tbis
new marvel, the electric light.
a
"That was thirty years ago.   Last
month, on advice of my physician,
I went out to a   suburban   sanitari
um   for   treatment for a rheumatic j
trouhle.    Al the corner  I took ,an
electric car that carried me   to   the i
suburbs.   There 1 entered an   elec t
trie automobile   that  whisked me a |
mile   farther,   to   the   sanitarium.
Hauing arrived there, I was taken
by au electric elevator to my room,
where au attendant  turned  on  the
electric light and   switched   on  the
electric fan.    A  moment later   the
house physician came in.   On leaving me; he said tbat I would be notified   when   to   come down to the
treatment room.    Soon after his call
an electric sign on the wall  Hashed
the words, 'Treatment Room.'
"On going down lo that apartment, I had an electric light bath,
after which the phyi-icimi applied
electric sponges to my aching joints.
When I had returned to my room
the electric telephone at the head ot
my bed rung, and lying there, I
talked to my secretary in the house
office-building in Washington. He
bad called me up to ask after my
health.
"Just hefore day the next morn
ing I awakened, and desiring some
hot milk, summoned tbe night attendant by pressidg an electric button. When I made known my
wants the atteudant retired, returning in a few moments with a small
electric stove, on which he t-oo i
heated a palatable drink. Before rising lhat morning I bad an electric
ma».-age. The nurse told me thai
he had just been attending a patient
with a chill, and had materially relieved him by packing electric bed
warmers about him.
"During the forenoon I had a
slight attack of nervousness. I was
placed in an electric chair—not the
electric chair—and its gentle vibrations soon sent me ol. into a soothing sleep.
"During the afternoon I had occasion to communicate with a ci 1-
league on a matter shat I did not
care to trust to the telephone. Accordingly, I telephoned my secre
lary to have the member in question
call me on the telautograph punctually nt a certain minute. This he
did, within a quarter-minute of the
time I had set, for the clock at the
sanitarium and the clucks in lhe
house building are both connected
by electric wire with the government
ollicial clock at the national  obser
vatory, aud regulated to the second
eaeh day. Then I sat down snd
carried on a secret correspondence
on the electric telautograph, by
means of which the words were written by electricity at a distance of
eight miles.
"When I recovered sufficiently lo
walk, 1 strolled one day up lhe valley to the source of all this power.
U was a humble little stream tbut
tumbled down tbrough an iron pipe
to a turbine wheel. I do not know
which excited my admiration more,,
the numberless uses to which 1 had
seen electricity put, or the elmplic -
ty ol this tailingslieam that was the
moving power of it; but 1 do know
tbal my emotion did not compare in
intensity wilh the amazement that 1
felt thirty years before, when I first
beheld lhal glowing bulb under lhe

tbe beat picture ever offered newspaper reader*. It is entitled "Home

who meet after anxious separation.
"Laddie," a collie dog, famous for his beauty and gentleness, winner

lias been stolen, and nfter many day*' absence lie escapes one night from
his captor and ri'iurns home on u snowy winter's morning with the rope
which he broke in bis struggles for freedom danulimt from his collar.
Mis familiar bark brings hia little mistress, Marjorie, tn the door and
she throws her arms around her trusty playmate's neck with cries of joy
which bring her mother anil brother to the door. "Laddie" is equally
delighted to be "Home Again." and answers her welcome by putting his
paws on her shoulder and resting his head against her bream with a little
whine, which in his dog language means—"Where I love is Home."
The sweet faced young mother, a woman of soft curves, tender eyeB
mid parted lips—the two glad-eyed children—an eager boy with hair likej
his mother's and the quick gesture of excited boyhood; the warm-hearted
girl with rippling locks, her affectionate arms around the shaggy neck of
the beautiful collie, all go to form a picture that will win a favored place
on the walls of any home.

Appealed to  Him
Two newsboys sat in the gallery of
a local theatre in which "Hamlet"
was being played. It was the first
time they had seen u play, and they
were held breathless with excitem-.nt.
In the last scene, after Hamlet had
killed Laertes and the king, the queen
had died of poison, and Hamlet of a
poisoned wound, the younger of the
two could contain himself no longer.
Turning to his chum of the streets
in rapturing tones he said:
"Golly, Bill, what a time for sellin'
speshul-'."
The Dealer—"Well, he's sixteen
years old, mum, I'll admit that; hut
he ain't wind-broken nor nothin'."
Mrs. Newcash (who has decided not
to buy)—"We're very sorry, but we
would not cure tn buy a horse that
was not thoroughly wind-broken."—
Judge.
He—"Do vou approve of dancing?"
She-"No."
"Why not?"
"Why it's mere hugging set to
music."
"Well, wlrnt ia there about it that
vou don't like?"
"The music."—Tit-Bits.
Wife—"Why did you refuse to give
that man the rooms?"
Husband—"He looked so ill-tempered I was afraid 1 should never summon un courage to raise his rent later
on."—Fliegende Blaetter.
"Jack is blindly in love with you."
"How do you know?" "He told me
he didn't think you looked a day over
twenty-nine."—Toledo Blade.

Death After a Scratch
Morris Quatznni, an eleven-year-old
Windsor hoy, fell off his bicycle and
scratched his wrist. He thought nothing of the injury, but blood poison
set in, and he is dead.
Such incidents as these — by no
means infrequent—ought to make people realize the danger that may lie
even in the smallest flesh wound.
Take a simple illustration. When
a knife, a rusty needle, a splinter of
dirty wood, a barbed wire fence, or a
thorn, scratches the hand, the latter
is inoculated with germs, of which the
air about us is full.
The way to avoid serious results is
to cleanse the wound and apply Zam-
Buk. Zam-Buk is a powerful, yet
painless germ-killer, and when applied to the broken skin is absorbed
into the tissue, instantly destroying
the germs that spread disease and
stopping the pain and smarting. That
is why Zam-Buk is so popular with
children.
The flesh thus soothed and purified,
the wound is made perfectly healthy,
nnd all poison and cause of festering
removed. Having done this, Zam-
Buk then proceeds to heal the wound
or sore, and new healthy tissue is
built up in a quick, painless and perfect manner.
Zam-Buk must not, be confused with
ordinary ointments. Zam-Buk is a
unique preparation, possessing antiseptic, soothing and healing qualities
that are not to be found together in
nny other preparation. It is not only
a unique healing halm, but it is also
a skin food. For all skin diseases and
injuries—cuts, bruises, burns, edema,
chafing, ulcers, ringworm, etc., it is
without equal. It is also used widely
for piles, fnr which it may lie regarded
as a specific. All druggists and stores
sell at 50 cents a box, or post free
from Zam-Buk Co., Toronto, for price.
Refuse harmful imitations.
Wanted To Know
Mrs. Flint (severely)—Do you ever
drink intoxicants?
Soiled Sponer (at the door)—Before replyin', madam, permit me to
ask if dat is an invitation or merely
an inquiry?
"How did yonr passenger hoppen to
fall from the aeroplane into the
water?" asked the aviator's friends.
'He started tn rock the "plane," replied the nviator, significantly.—Buffalo Express.

DR. CHASE'S
KIDNEY-LIVER PILLS
"It is nothing when you get used to
it," is a common expression which i
many seem to apply to attacks of biliousness.
Year after year they suffer from frequent spells of bilious headache, indigestion, constipation followed by looseness of the bowels, dizziness, despondency and ill-temper, and the habit
seems to have become so firmly established that they do not think of breaking the chains of bondage.
Why not make a break for liberty ,
health and happiness? Dr. Chase's
Kidney-Liver Pills stand ready to help
you. They have helped thousands under just such circumstances to know
again the joys of healthful living.
Dr. Chose's Kidney-Liver Pills cure
biliousness by reason of their direct
und specific action on the liver, causing the bile to be properly filtered
from the blood, where it acts as a poison, and passed into the intestines,
where it is necessary to aid digestion
antl regulate the action of the bowels.
By this treatment you not only obtain relief from the attack, but bring
about lasting cure and prevent kidney
disease, which is the usual outcome
of neglected biliousness.

A Lightning Conductor
"The late Thomas Wentwnrlh Higginson," said a Harvard instructor,
"loved music, hut not the extremely
technical music of Richurd Strauss,
Ravel antl others of that type. Colonel Higginson used to tell a story.
He said that Strauss went one summer on a hunting trip in the mountains. It. chanced that on a certain
afternoon a terrific thunderstorm descended on a hunting purty. Amid
enr-spliting thunder anil blinding
lightning, amid deluges of rain whipped by a ronring wind, the huntsmen
all sought shelter. Where, though,
i was Strauss?
"Three frientls set out in alarm to
look for him. They (eared that in the
I wild chaos of the storm he hud fallen
I down a precipice. After a long while
j they fnund hiin; they found him do-
a ing—what do you suppose?
"Strauss stood bareheaded on the
I summit of a lofty crag. The lightning
played about hiin in vivid, violent
flashes; the rain deluged him; the
roaring wind flapped his coat-tails
about his head, and the musician, a
ramrod in his hand, was busily engaged on his crag in conducting the
thunderstorm!"—Detroit Free Press.

The heart is a wonderful double pump, through the

miles an hour, "Remember this, that our bodies

pure blood any more than the engine oan run smoothly without oil." After many years of study ia the
active practice of medicine, Dr. R. V. Pieroe lound
that when the stomaoh was out of order, the blood
impure and there were symptoms ol general breakdown, a tonio made oi the glyceric extract of certain
roots was the best corrective.   This he called

Raymond blurted bla startling announcement uud dodged out of tbe
bunk house. Ills three comrades stared
opeu mouthed ut one anotber until
Pepper broke the silence.
"■Married!" be uttered dazedly. "Did
he aay that'."
Tony Ooff solemnly nodded. "And
he said ber inniiu la Emmerett Hodge,"
he aaid ln an awed tone.        >
"Emmerett Hodge!" repeated Prole
bitterly. **A gin wltb a name Uke
that always has a tony wedding.
What did Hay-muid aay about UT I
didn't sense It all. I waa so flabbergasted."
"Aa near as I can r*coilect be laid
tbere was to be a fancy tlene at ber
bonse aud we waa invited. Tony bere
hu got tu atand up with tbe bridegroom."
Jink Prole un Jointed his long legs
ud stood erect, towering above tbt
otber twp. "Wbat about a weddln'
present?" he demanded.
"That's easy. We'll all cblp ln and
git Mrs. Cat-wood to buy lt down to
Pen Held. Wlmmen alwaya know wbat
to git"
Tony Ooff ahook his head. "Nix on
that. Pepper. Wby, Raymond's been
onr mau for tbree yeara-ever since
1 <coin« to the Twin Star. I feel
mighty friendly to him. I reckon all
of us do. and we mnst pick out the
present ourselves.   Wbat ss-ayY"
The others nodded assent, and as it
Happened tbat tbe morrow waa tbe
monthly pay day they decided to ride
•ver to Penfleld tbe next afternoon
and select, a wedding gift for Raymond's bride'.
With pockets well lined and bronzed
(aces portentously solemn with tbe
Import of tbeir mission, tbe tbree set
forth on the twenty mile ride from the
Twin Star cattle ranch to tbe largest
town In the county.
They atopped at Red Spider for tbe
mail, and lbe three wedding Invitations tbat fared tbem nearly canned a
stampede. Jink Prote stared unhappily at tbe engraved words.
"1 dunno." he hesitated. "It mlgbt
bt this present business ougbter be did
by an expert If wt should make a
mistake sbe—tht Isdy - Emnierett-
mlgbt take offense at wbat we got"
Tony Guff tucked bla envelope away
Ud prepared to amok*. "Tbere ain't
no use losing your nerve," be said at
length. "You braced oa to tbe Job. and
•eta got to carry It through. Mebbe we
ain't got to go clean to Penfleld. What
you tblnk of tbut lamp In Cox's winder!" Ue pointed a lean foreflnicer at
the duaty. fly spoiled merchandise displayed by the postmaster.
Tbe three surveyed It longingly.
' It was a tall lamp of pink glass and
when freed from dost and lighted
mlgbt Vaat an added rosy glow over
the future of the newly wedded pair.
Mr. Pepper stands to tht door and
bawled an Inquiry.
Be returned and flung himself on
bis horse. "Three ninety-eight. Including tbt shade." be repeated contemptuously, "and ua with a hundred in
our pockets to spend!"
Wltb one accord tbey resumed tbe
journey to Penfleld, leaving behind tbe
dark shadowing mountains with the
laat glimmer of tbe eunset along tbe
tipper ridges. It was after dark when
tbey pounded into tbe town, and, hungry and thirsty, tbey made tbelr way
to a restaurant and satisfied tbelr appetites.
Afterward they entered tbe Farnum
emporium, a maze of narrow aisles
running between shelves and counters
laden wltb glaaa and cblna In every
conceivable form of fragility. The
tide walla of tbe store were lined with
countera upon wblcb were piled household wares, while tbt rear presented
a gloomy barricade of furniture against
a background of gaudy carpets.
Jink Prole sidestepped down an
aisle and reached tbe barricade Jnst
aa a pretty girl arose from a cbalr and
laid down a piece of fancy work.
"Wbat can I du for you!" ahe asked
briskly.
Rofore tbt tall ranchman could an-
awer tbere came a tvrritk* crash and
the sound of splintering glass blended
with startled profanity.
"Oh!" exclaimed tbe glrL "That's
real mt glass!"
"'Tie considerable rut np." agreed
Trole at tbey reached the scene of
disaster, wbere Pepper and Tony Ooff
stood staring down at the havoc they
had created. "How'd you manage to
clean off the bnll shelf!"
Mr. Pepper twlaied bis long mustache
ruefully. "Of course It can't lie because
it'a-uarrow gunge here. We sqnnze
ourselves as well's we could, but somehow there wan't no place for elbows.
Now. mlaa, what's ths dumuge!"   Bt
dug bis hand deep Into a pocket and
brought forth bla month's pay. $40.
Tht girl knelt upon tbe floor and
bent* her bead above tbe fragments,
piecing tbem together with little dismayed exclamations. At last she tossed
back ber misty black hair and looked
np at tbem with slowly crimsoning
cheeks.
"It's too bad." she aaid regretfully,
"but tbla Is real cnt glass, and It's aw-
ful expensive. There waa a water bottle and alx tumblers—$10 for tbe bottle and $3 apiece for the tumblers.
Tbst's $22.   I'm awful sorry!"
Without a word - Ptnntr and Ooff
eacb laid $11 uu in* suen.   rue giri
took lt reluctantly. "I told Mr. Far
num be bad the ahelvea too crowded
to bt snfe." sbe said. "You've paid for
theae tblnga. Would they do you any
good if i waa to mend 'em for. yuu!
tou could use 'em for ornumenls."
"Nary, miss: tbey ain't any good to
ua. We're looking for—wbat am we
looking for. Prole!" demanded Ooff impatiently.
"A wedding present" drawled Mr.
Prole, gingerly withdrawing from tbe
perilous vicinity ot breakables. "We
thought of a pink glaaa lamp, but it
don't coat enough. Bave you got a
real expensive 'lumlnftor, miss?"
The girl smiled and led tbe wuy to a
ahelf laden wltb a flower bed of colored lamps. Bhe glanced at tbe price
tags and then aaid: "Tbls one for $12
la tbe moat expenalvt ont. It's very
pretty."
Tht three surveyed the lamp doubtfully. It was a small lamp of brass,
wltb an elaborate ahadt tet with pink
opalescent glaaa.
"It don't cost enough." said Prole
with regret. "It'a mighty pretty, mlsa.
but we couldn't band out no measly
present like tbat to Emmerett Dhow
na something better."
Tbe girl stilled an exclamation and
took them to a case full of silverware.
As tbey gravely examined knivee and
forka tbe girl watched them uneasily.
At last, flushing deeply, she spoke,
"Most any girl would tblnk tbat lamp
waa a nice present"
Tbey shook their beads negatively.
"It'a got tu be aumetblng pretty nice
and tasty." said Tony Ooff: "you see.
ber name'a Emmerett and a girl that
baa that bandit to ber la used to good
living."
"We couldn't get anything poor looking." added Pepper, and Jink Prole
nodded assent
■'It's a nice lamp." persisted the girl.
"Wt mlgbt git four or rive lamps-
enough for the bull bouse. Let's look
at them again." Jink Prole turned
euddenly to lead tbe way back to the
lamps; bis sharp elbow dug Into Tony
GofTs ribs, and tbat atom gentleman
leaped backward to fall heavily
against one of tbe china laden tables.
When tbe clattering crash bad died
Into alienee Mr. Ooff picked himself
out of a debris of broken dinner seta
to confront an lratt little man wbo
danced wildly before them and demanded instant reimbursement for bta
losses.
It required tbe united efforts of Tony
Golfs companions to convince*the angry proprietor tbat tba offense was
not intentional.
"You can't fool me!" he sputtered
loudly. "I bad a place shut np oncet
In Dead Eye and they didn't leave mi
much aa a glass salt cellar-wiped out
my bull stock of cblna and glassware
and"—
"Drop It confound ye!" growled Jink
Prole. "Jest you compose ynur little
bnnch of cinnamon sldewblskers and
git down and count np your loss. I
reckon we can pay fer what we break
We're a-shoppin' fer cnt glass and cut
cblna. and we've paid ftr $22 worth already."
Tbt three ranchmen stood rigidly
in their tracks while Mr. Farnum and
the black balred girl took Inventory
of tbe shattered crockery. Many of
the pieces of various dinner sets were
whole and there were several vases
that were cracked or only slightly broken. These Mr. Farnum announced
would be a total lost to bim and the
ranchmen mlgbt as well carry tbem
away.
Six dinner sets and four vases and
a glass water pitcher had goue dowu
to destruction, and Mr. Farnum dolefully announced tbat $00 would barely
cover tbe wholesale price.
In silence tbe $110 was handed over,
while tbe girl stood near witb downcast face.
"All these pieces that ain't broke be
long to yon gentlemen." remarked Mr.
Farnum magnanimously. "Of course
tbey ain't no use to mt because none
of 'em match anything else I've In
stock. There's cups and saucers and
platea and"-
"I guess we'll bt going along," Interrupted Prole slowly aa be thrust bis

pocket "We're speut about all tbe
money we reckoned on In tbls here

pink lamp up In Red Spider ter three

Emmerett." *
The girl flashed a glance at tbt retreating form of her employer and
tben laid a band on Jink Prole'a tleeve.
She was laughing, bnt tht tears were
in ber eyes.
"Don't you dart boy that pink lamp."
she whispered. "Yon aet out to get

"flow d'you know sbe would rather

triumphantly.

Your Money If You Are Not
Satisfied With the Medi- .
cine We Recommend
We are sn positive that our remedy will permanently relieve constipation, no mutter how chronic it
may lie, that we offer to furnish the
medicine at our expense should it
full to produce satisfactory results.
. It is worse than uselesB to attempt
to cure constipation with cathartic
drugs. Laxatives and cathartics do
much barm. They cause a reaction,
irritate, and weaken the bowels and
lend to make constipation more
chronic. Besides, their use becomes
a habit that is dangerous.
Constipation is cused by a weakness ol the nerves and muscles of the
large inlt-stiiie or descending colon.
To expect permanent cure you must
therefore tone up and strengthen
these organs and restore them to
healthier activity.
We want you to try Rexall Orderlies on our recommendation. They
are exceedingly pleasant to Uke, being eaten like candy, and are ideal
for children, delicate p. mods, aid
old tolks, as well as for the robust.
They act directly on the nerves and
muscles ol the bowels. They apparently bave a neutral action on
other associate organs or glands.
They do uot purge, cause .excessive
looseness, nor create any inconvenience whatever. Tbey may be taken
al any time, day or night. They
will positively relieve chronic or
habitual constipation, if not of surgical variety, uud the myriads of associate or dependent chronic ailments, u taken witb regularity for
a reasonable length of time. 12 lab-
