By ALBERT TUCKER KENYON  Copyright, 1910, by American Press  Association.  "Do you see that lady over there?"  asked lieu Ilollister ut a social gathering.  "Ves. What about her?"  "Though she has never been married, she is known as Mrs. SVarbur-  ton."  "Indeed!" I remarked, looking at her  Again. There wns nothing in her appearance to indicate n scandal. On'  the contrary, there was that to refute  one. "It cannot be used reproachfully?"  "Certainly not. She applies It to  herself," replied Ilollister.  "IIow do you know all this?" 1  nskod.  "Sho is my cousin. 1 know her  slory well. She is going out of the  room.   Observe her."  1 did so, ii ml ns she walked she  seemed to be looking up. as If at some  one beside her. And yet there was no  one there.  "She  believes,"  added  my companion, "that the man  whom she considers her husband is attending her.   Uo  comes and  gws.    Whether ills  being  or not being -'illi her has anything to  do  with a  greater or less degree of  menial  deflection   I   don't  know.    In  society she Is never seen, without him.  On all other iiulijet-ts  1 consider her  perfectly   raticual.    She  is   respected  and beloved niul we'i-ed everywhere.  No one has to'.tl her rhat other people  do not see her aticiidaut and that she  suffers under a hallucination.    Nevertheless she knows others do uot see  him.   POll, it Is impossible for her to  believe that she does not see him herself.  "This Is her story: She is Miss Marion Beale. When the Spanish-American war broke out she was engaged to  Sam Warbui'twi, a captain in the ���������th  "United States Infantry. She was very  much in love with him, and the parting with him Quite broke tier clown  lie was with his regiment in all the  fighting that occurred from the time  the American troops landed till the  last shot was fired. Indeed, it was one  of these last shots that killed him.  "It seems tint when lie wont to the  ���������war his betrothed bad a presentiment  thnt he would never come back io her  She scanned ail the reports of the  fighting, always dreading to see his  name. There were a good many hoi  fights In that war, besides a lot of disease. Miss Heale suffered from the  strain and received a terrible shock  at last News came that the Spanish  forces at Saniiago had surrendered  and the will- was over. The people of  the United States were rejoicing at the  ���������victory, and Hundreds whose relatives  in the army had been spared to them  ���������were looking forward with delight to  their return. Miss Deale shared in  these rejoicings. There came a belated report that her lover was killed at  the very last. She withdrew from the  social world for a time, and wheu she  reappeared was observed to act as If  attended by Captain Warburtou."  "And bow do you know that he is  not attending her?" I asked.  Ilollister looked at me as if he had  been suddenly struck with the belief  that I was as daft as the lady.  Now, 1 am n physician, aud a physician of the newest school. In other  word, I believe in autosuggestion,  which means that people suffering  from certain ailments, especially of the  so called nervous order, are producing  the trouble themselves on themselves  by believing they have the ailment in  question. 1 was very much struck  ���������with the personnel of Miss Beale and  was seized with a desire to cure her  of her hallucination. 1 Wished Hoi Hater to tell her that he knew a man  who did not share the opinion of most  people that she suffered from hallucination, but that such a thing as the  real   nresence of  CiiDtuiu   Warburton  YOU CAN SEE  HOW IT HEALS  No doubt or question as to the healing power of  DR. CHASE'S OINTMENT  To people who have used internal  treatment in an effort to cure eczema  it is almost beyond belief what benefit can be obtained by a few applications of this soothing, healing ointment.  It is seldom that the cause of eczema can be determined but one  thing is certain, the itching must be  stopped and the sores healed up.  These results are secured by tlie  use.of Dr. A. W. Chase's Ointment.  The itching is relieved almost instant.  ]y, and you will be surprised at the  healing which will take pluce over-,  night.  A little patience and persistent  treatment with Dr. Chase's Ointment  will give you more practical and definite results than a whole lot of dos-  iug with internal medicines. You can  see how the Ointment heals. The  other is guesswork.  Mr. Geo. Peterson, South Bay, Ont.,  writes:���������"I wish to communicate to  you the great benefit I received from  using Dr. A. W. Chase's Ointment.  For years I suffered with a great skin  disease on my head, a sort ol eczema.  I tried four doctors, giving each a  fair trial, but got no better. In fact  the disease spread to. my left arm.  "I saw Dr. Chase's Ointment advertised ancl began using it. Persistent  use of this treatment has entirely  cured me, and I give you a statement  of my case with pleasure, as I hope  thereby to induce some other sufferer  to try the same Dr. Chase's Ointment."  Because this ointment has made  its world-wide reputation by curing  the most severe' 'and longstanding  cases of eczema, arid piles.is,no reason you should overlook Its scores ol  uses in the relief of itching and irritation of the skin.  Dr. A. W. Chase's Ointment, GOc  a box, at all dealers or Edmnnaon,  Bates and Co.., Toronto,  was possible.   My ultimate object was  to gain her entire coniidence.  "Do you really mean," usked Hollis-  ter, "that you have any idea whatever  that a wraith is attending her?"  "My reply is the question I have just  asked. How do you know there is not?"'  "I don't know It, but I'll bet you $10  to 10 cents there isn't."  "What use in betting? Neither of us  could win, since neither of us could  prove his position.. However, I wish  you to introduce me to your co     n."  I received the introduction. I made  no mention of what flollister had told  me, chatting on trivial subjects. I  asked permission to call upou the lady  and received it. When I called I saw  at once by my reception that Ilollister  had told her what I had said to hira.  In me she had found some one to sympathize with her. Welind uot been together long before she regretted that  Captain Warburton had gone out'to his  club, the Army and Navy, else she  would have been pleased to have mo  make his acquaintance.  My theory was that Miss Beale's  trouble was mental nnd had come from  a shock; also Hint she would have recovered from that shock by natural  process, or rather had recovered, but  was keeping up the hallucination by  iinlosuggesiion. In other words, she  made herself think that Captain Warburton was with her by believing ho  was with her.   The problem before m*  -as I saw It-was to kill Captain Warburton.   lie was dead to all other persons, and it was my business to kill  | him In her mentality.   IIow was I to  ; do this?  One evening when calling on Miss  Beale I said to her, "By the bye, I was  introduced Into the Army and Navy  club the other day and met Captain  Warburton."  1 saw that the mention of him seemed  to disturb her���������that a pained expression passed across her face. So I made  but one more remark about him���������a remark conveying something I especially  wished to convey. "He is not looking  very well." Then, without waiting for  a reply. I turned the subject.  Once or twice after that I mentioned  having met Captain Warburton. and  never failed to remark that he seemed  to be ill. My process or. rather, attempted process of cure was necessarily a slow one, and by hurrying I  feared to spoil all. Indeed. I Was not  willing to take any risk by haste on  my own account as well as the lady's.  When 1 began my course of treatment  I simply desired to enable her to get  rid of the image she was creating of  her former lover. Before I had known  her a month I hoped to put myself in  his place.  As soon as I dared net decidedly I  .wrote her a note stating that I had a  very important communication to  make to her and I hoped she would  nerve herself to endure a separation.  I would call the same evening.  I called and found her anxiously expecting me.  "Mrs. Warburton." I began at once,  "your husband yesterday called at my  office to consult me on the matter of  his health. 1 found him suffering from  n heart trouble which, should he receive the slightest shock, might carry  him off. I have told him that absolute  quiet is essential and have advised  him to go away from the city, from  every one .he-knows, or .who knows  him, and to live absolutely alone, not  communicating with any one. He has  taken my advice and asked me to impart the news to you."  By this act I gave my patient a temporary backset, but this I expected. I  saw that she was going through the  strain she had suffered at receiving  the news of Warburton's death. I did  all I could to comfort her. but would  not say that I believed the course I  recommended would restore her husband to health. I left her. promising  to return the nest evening and give  her more news.    :.  '..���������..When I saw her again she told me  that the captain had been to see her  before bis departure���������that he looked  very badly, and she was very much  troubled about him. This was an unwelcome surprise to me, fori feared  the wraith would see her occasionally  without my permission. I told her to  tell him if he saw her again that the  excitement attending the meeting  might kill hira.  It was evident that Miss Beale would  not very long bear the strain I  was giving her. She couldn't sleep,  suffered from nervous paroxysms and  was rapidly losing flesh. 1 must kill  Captain Warburtou as soon as possible. I dreaded to announce his death  to her, but was forced' to cbooc*) between doing so and restoring him to  health. I chose the former course.  Fortifying myself with restoratives, I  went to see her one afternoon, and  when she came into (he room where I  was I showed her by my sympathetic  and melancholy expression that I had  bad news for her.  "He is dead!" she walled.  I took her hand and pressed It. but  said nothing. I drew her to a sofa  aud. sitting by her side, told her as  briefly as possible that one evening  while the captain was sitting in his  lonely abode some one had fired a  shot outside. Even so slight a shock  hud arrested the beating of his heart  I was greatly surprised at the resignation with which she received the  melancholy news. She asked me about  the funeral. But 1 hud prepared myself for this. 1 told her that 1 had already directed that the captain bo  burled ut his retreat. I confessed to  have deceived her,. In many things  about him for bis aud her good.  I left Miss Beale without having had  occasion to use the restoratives. I had  great hopes that I would restore her  to health, and these hopes were fulfilled. She improved rapidly after  this iind, so far as 1 or others could  discover, did not see the figure of her  former lover, though she told me she  dreamed of him. and sometimes these  dreams were so realistic that sho was  not sure but that sho was awake  when sho dreamed them. 1 told her  that the vision was simply the result  of a nervous strain.  As I hoped, even these symptoms In  time faded away, and within six  weeks after I bad killed Captain War  burton I felt sure that I had put a  quietus on him forever.  I believed now all that remained td  be done was,* to give my patient a  strong tonic. But Instead of drugs I  gave her a trip. I sent her abroad,  and she remained abroad for six  months. Shortly before she was to return I wrote her that 1 needed an outing and would meet her at Nice,  where she was getting rid of the winter. I found a great change in her.  She had gained twenty pounds in  flesh and gave every Indication of vigorous health.  But n surprise was In store for me.  Grasping my hand with fervent gratitude, she said:  "Doctor, I know tho obligation I am  under to you for curing me of my  hallucination. I myself at times suspected what it was, but I could never  get rid of It."  A considerable part of my treatment  I have not mentioned. It was interesting Miss Beale In myself. Before  our return to America we were- married.  Carlile's  Trombone.  The  founder of tlie Church  Army,  Prebendary Carlile, who was recently  received   by   King George,    tells   an  amusing story about one of the open-  air   brass   band    processions    which  paraded London, headed by Mr. Carlile with a trombone.    Robed  in  his  surplice, the prebendary left the procession���������which was a New Year's Eve  parade���������from time to time and entered the numerous public homes passed on the road.   In one public house  a man seized the prebendary's trombone  ancl   told   him   he  should   have  it back if he would play a tune.   On  his reply that he was too fired, a tall,  clean-shaven man volunteered to play  instead.   Calling out,   "Hats off, gen.  tlemen!"   he played   "God  Save  the  King."   The musician then took Mr.  Carlile's  cap  and   passed   it    round,  collecting 0s. in a very few moments.  The   cap,   collection,   and   trombone  were then    returned    to   Mr.   Carlile,  who  departed   well  satisfied  to  have  raised    something   for    the    Church  Army relief  work  in   this  unconventional way.

General Sir Reginald Polo-Carew,  who has been returned for Bodmin,  in the recent British elections, relates  the following story showing the energy of the British soldier. A German attache in the South African  war was amazed at thc spectacle of  the British soldiers after a fight staggering into camp, but rushing instantly after a football 'which was  thrown on the veldt. The German  attache said to the general, "Well,  you are the most extraordinary people in the whole civilized world. I  have been with your men all day. I  know what they have done. I know  they have had nothing to eat or  drink, and I know of no other troops  in the world that would not have  been lying down asleep. If we could  do this wfe could conquer tlie world!"  Studied   In Tree-Tops.  Dr. Eyle, who has given up the  Bishopric of Winchester, worth $.30,-  000 a year, to become Dean of Westminster at a salary of $10,000, is a  fine example of muscular Christianity. When at Eton he became famous as a runner and jumper, and today finds chief recreation in walking,  tennis-playing, and mountaineering.  As a boy, too, he was very fond of  climbing trees, and was often dariog  enough to read his books while seated in the topmost branches. One day  he fell down from one of these eyries,  and would have been killed had it  not Deer, for a cushioned seat at the  foot of the tree, which broke his fall.  A quaint hobby of his is collecting  portraits of Erasmus, the famous  Dutch scholar, of which he is believed  to have a greater number than any  other man living.  A Common and Dangerous  Trouble���������You Must Enrich the Blood to  Escape Danger  Anaemia is simply a lack of blood.  It is one of the most ccnimon and at  the snine time most dangerous diseases with which" growing girls suffer.  It is common because thu blood so  often ; becomes ' impoverished during  development, when girls are loo frequently allowed to over-study, overwork and suffer from a lack of exercise. It is dangerous because of the  stoallhiness of its approach, often  being well developed before its presence is recognized, and because of.its  tendency to grow so steadily worse,  if not promptly checked, that it may  run  into  consumption.  The value of the tonic treatment  with Dr. Williams' Pink Tills should  be known to every mother in the  land. These Pills make new, rich,  blood, tone the organs and nerves,  bring a glow of health to pale, sallow cheeks, arid drive away thc  weakness, headaches, faintnoss, heart,  palpitation and loss of energy so noticeable in young girls who are suffering from anaemia. To -all such  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are an ac-  tunl life saver. Miss Mabel McTavish, Prince Albert, Sask., says: "In  my case I can only say that life had  lost its magic; all work was a trial,  and even pleasure only a task. When  I went up a flight of stairs I was  ready to drop from sheer weakness,  and I had begun to think life would  be a continual burden. But all this  is now changed, thanks to Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. These were recommended'to me, and after taking  them for about a month I found my  health renewed. I could sleep better, my appetite returned, and I was  so strong and well that housework  was no longer a burden to me. My  sister seemed to be going the same  way last summer and Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills were at once sent for and  two boxes made her as well as ever.  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills arc now the  prized medicine in our home, and  doctor bills have been fewer since we  discovered the virtues of this great  medicine."

Political  and theological enemies pursued it with  the venom of a rattlesnake until the  government shut it out of the mails,  and its editor ceasad to publish it,  paitly on account of a lazy liver and  partly because it takes a pile of money  to run a paper that is outlawed.

Shop, Greenwood,  SrW^wBIO������wBCOwsp*wW*BwwC^BwB*8*Psi  During the first sixty years of  the nineteenth century the newest  race of men were forming. They  were Westerners. Their Kingdom  was the wide valley from the Alle-  ghenies to the Rockies, from tbe  Great Lakes to the Gulf, the most  imperial physical basis ever prepared upon the globe by nature  for a favored tribe. Lured by the  tales of Daniel Boone and his kind  the boldest spirits of the east followed the Ohio river or poured  thiough Cumberland Gap into tbe  inviting wilderness. They made a  New World.  They have three marks. First,  their susceptibility to religious  emotion. This characterizes all  young-hearted peoples. Only when  civilizations grow weak and sapless do they doubt and criticize.  Their second mark is humor, the  quaintest and most pecular in history. The distinguishing element  of Western humor is that it is  funny. French wit is subtle, delicately stimulating the thought  molecules. Irishmen are nimble.  Englishmen are dry. European  fun as a rule is of the raw-head-and  bloody-bones type. The West produced an absolutely new type, from  ArteuiU8 Ward, the first western  humorist, to Mark Twain, Bob  Burdette, Mr. Dooley and George  Ade.  Their first mark is a tremendous  activity. They are all "Sons of  Martha." They conquered the forest and swamp. They were as  pugnacious as pious, for, as was  said of the pilgrims, "they first fell  upon their knees, and then fell  upon the aborigines."  The incarnation of westernism  may be found in Abraham Lincoln,  made  "Of sweet clay from the breast  Of the unexhausted West,  The kindly earnest brave forseeing  Society's Greatest Sin  They arrested the girl who, they  say, left the baby on the back door  step. The hand of the law reached  for her and fetched her. They will  put her on the stand and compel  her to bear her heart to the gaze of  the morbid crowd. Maybe they  will send her to prison if they can.  All the world will know her name  and revel in her shame.  But who knows the name of the  man who brought her to her plight!  Who cares! What policeman will  go and fetch him! What plainclothes man is busy in his quest!  Not any, no doubt.  We brand her with the brand of  the Scarlet Letter; but him, we  take him into our house, into our  club, and he is a good fellow.  If we let her escape the prison  cell we turn her out upon a self-  righteous world to shift; as best she  can for her meagre fare.  But hira, wepa'rouize, for he's a  brick we say.  But he's a coward and a churl.  .Ono can feel a certain respect for  a man who will face death to hold  up a train, or who will meet his  enemy face to face and kill him.  But the man who will betray a  woman's trust, and who, having  betrayed her, will desert her  in her plight, is a contemptible  skunk, the lowest brand of criminal.  The punishment that should be  inflicted upon a girl in such a case  as this should be to compel her to  to tell her betrayer's name. And  then, whatever penalty the law imposes for her wrong should be  transferred to him.  You say no? You say perhaps,  that he was not the first to wrong  her? Well his offence against  society is not to be excused for  that.  Let's overthrow the double standard of morality. Let'B place the  ban against the man who- thus offends. Let us impose strict Justice.  Too long the woman has suffered  for the man's offence. This is an  age of reason, or supposed to be.  What is reasonable about allowing  only one to carry all the load of  guilt? And she the weaker one.  The one whom, by every rule of  right, we should cherish and pro-  As You Make It.  , A town becomes what the people  make it, but you cannot build a  town with i.ickle ideas. The  Beacon of Aurora, Illinois has this  to say about building up towns:  "Don't sit around aud damn  your town."  "The town is just as good as the  man who damns it.  "Every city is just what its citizens want it to be.  "A desire on the part of the  people for a better town is a prayer  that is always answered.  "The advantage of one town over  another are the result of the people  rather thnn natural conditions, and  environment.  "In any event, it was the people  who saw the natural advantage,  frequently some one individual saw  them first.  "There is no reason why Cleveland should have been the oil centre of the world. There is no oil  there naturally and shipping facilities are no better than a dozen  other so far as oil is concerned.  It was simply John D. Rockefeller.  He wanted to live there and his  personalit}"-, his individuality  brought the oil to him in pipe  lines."  There is no reason why Boston  should be the shoo manufacturing  centre of the world. No hides are  there���������they are shipped from the  west. Simply some man who knew  how to make shoes on a large scale  wanted to live there, and his success started others along the same  line.  There is no physical reason why  Chicago should have been the beef  packing centre.    It might as well  have been St. Louis.    Simply old  Phil Armour, wanted to live there.  In nearly every  town one visits  you  hear   residents   say:     "Aw,  this aint nothing but an over-grown  country town."    The residents of  any town who makes this or similar  statements, are applying the brake  of adversity to the- wheel  of progress in the commercial and industrial growth of any community.     1  Cincinatti is Btill the mercantile  supply point for all the territory  south of the Smith and Wesson  line.  Years ago, at the waning of the  river traffic, it was about to give  place to Louisville and Memphis.  The citizens got busy and built  the Cincinatti and Southern railway. This road was once a dream  in the individuals mind. They  called him a dreamer. Yet his  dream saved the town.  IS THE GREATEST      ,  THEATRICAL i SHOW PAPER  IN THE WORLD.  $4,00 Per Year.

If you wish to stop dallying with the cup that cheers, eat  orauges.  The advice was given by Dr. G.  J. Drews, to the Chicago Vegetarian   Society, in   an   address   on  "Cooked Food vs. Unfried Food."  "Orange juice is the best antidote for an alcholic appetite,"  he  said.    "When anyone feels a desire to drink anything intoxicating  all he has to do is to buy a couple  of oranges.    After eating them the  desire will soon pass away.    The  secret  lies in  tbe   sugar   of   the  orange.    It immediately causes a  wholesome disgust  even for   the  odor of a barroom.  About 95 per cent, of all diseases  are caused by eating cooked food.  That is because food, coming into  contact with fire, makes it unnatural. It gives it a sweet taste  which causes au abnormal appetite.  In consequence, the system becomes"  overworked and tbe blood deteriorates."���������Chicago Tribune.  Novel Legislators  The fourteen Socialist members  of the Wisconsin Legislature live  together, as one large family,   to  save expenses.   They have hired a  large living room,   big enough to  serve as a small ball in an old business block in Madison, and in this  they spend their evenings during:  the session of the Legislature conferring and studying   legislation.  They sleep in rooms in the same  building.    The  total cost of the  establishment for the fourteen men  is $25 a month.    This of course,  does not include their food.

England   Is Showing Some Quite  Re-  markableWork.  A shoit time ago the papers referred  to a wjiiderful .collection of pictures  by German working men which had  been collected by. Dr. Adolf Leven  stein, of Berlin. An article dealing  with these pictures was published in  The Strand Magazine, aud the editor  of that famous monthly invited working men of this country who had devoted tlieir leisure'to drawing and  painting to send specimens of.their  work.  The   lesult  of   the   invitation   was  astonishing.     Hundreds of paintings  and drawings were forwarded by British   worhing-men.    Dozens  of   trades  were  represented, including such diverse occupations as gardener, house-  painter,     lighterman,"    paperhanger,  compositor,   railway   porter,'   weaver,  coal-miner, waiter, and many others.  A selc-ction of these pictures is published   in   the  May   number   of  The  Strand, and the general artistic merit  "is such as to cause one to marvel that  so  much  talent lies hidden amongst  men whose daily' toil secures for them  a wage averaging from  $5 to $G per  week.    The article  published  in The  Strand commences with an initial picture-letter worthy of Walter Crane.   It  has been drawn by H. W. Ford, who  for  eight  years   worked   as  a   bottle-  washer to a firm of;wine merchants,  and   whose   weekly   wage  amounts to  *5.50.  iiut this  humble artist has higher  thoughts than bottle-washing.

Some people imagine Unit  aitistic ecllarmeu,  bricklayers'  labor  ers,   etc.,  are   simply   wasting   their  time.   Keeping pigeons or poultry, or  canvassing for insurance companies in  one's spare time, would, according to  them,  be  much   more sensible.    But  they are narrow-minded,'.that is all."

Burn   Caused  Open   Sore  Zam-Buk, Worked  a Wonderful  Cure.  Sometimes a bad burn,, a deep cut,  ,or some similar injury sets' up a more  'permanent injury, in the form of an  open'discharging sore. In such cases  Zam-Buk- will be found of unequalled  value.  Mr. J.J Nixon, of 001 William Ave.,  Winnipeg, a blacksmith at the C.P,R.  shops, .had his foot badly burned by  seme molten metal falling upon it.  He says: ."The .burn was a, very bad  one, and after the first few' days it  left an open sore, which showed marked signs of blood-poisoning. It discharged freely and caused me terrible' agony. For three weeks I suffered acutely and could get no ease  At last I obtained a preparation from  the doctor, which seemed to stop the  discharging and made me quite hopeful, but finally the wound became as  bad as over.  "I was then.advised to use Zam-  Buk, and from* thc first application  the. balm gave me relief. The inllam-  . ma tion was thoroughly checked, and  the poisonous matter cleared away  in a very short time after beginning  with Zam-Buk. Healing then began  and in less than two weeks the  wound was thoroughly healed."  ,One of thc main lessons of this case  lies right here���������try Zam-Buk first for  any injury, sore, ' skin disease cr  wound: It is equally good for piles,  blood-poisoning, festering wounds,  chaps, cold sore's, children's eruptions, scalp soies, varicose ulcers,  chilblains, etc. All druggists ancl  stores sell at 50c. box or post free  from Zam-Buk Co., Toronto, upon receipt of .price.-.

' ���������       ���������       Montreal  Mark Twain's Fake Speech  "Among the many pranks of Mark  Twain's journalistc days," said a Virginia city editor, "was the concoction  of a speech that was put upon a famous senator. The senator had attended a Virginia City banquet, but had  not spoken. He had a sore throat. A  brother from a rival paper reached  thc banquet late. 'What did the senator speak about?' the newcomer whispered to Mark Twain. 'He made a  very interesting speech on the potato,'  was the reply. 'The potato, eh?  That's odd. Let's have the points,  will you?' 'With pleasure,' said Mark  Twain, and he dictated a half column  that the reporter duly printed the  next morning, as the distinguished  senator's valuable contribution to  agricultural science. The speech began like this: 'Ladies and gentlemen,  had it been my lot to be born and  reared in Ireland, where my food  would have principally consisted of  the potato���������that most salubrious and  nutritious root���������I should now be, instead of the poor, infirm, stunted creature you see before you, a tall, stout  athletic man, able to carry an enormous weight."  When   I   Get  There  When I get time I'm going to write  A poem great and fine;  I'll pour my very heart and soul  Into its every line.  It shall be called my masterpiece,  By it I'll stand or fall;  Ancl in the ages yet to come  It will be praised by all.  I've studied deep of,human life;  I've sought the ways of men,  And all because I want to draw  Them with my sharpened pen.  I want to sway the plastic world  By thoughts and words sublime;  And try to make it better, too,  And will���������when 1 get time.  Alas!   Tho years have come and gone,  And each succeeding day  Has added cares already wrought,  And time has slipped away.  The masterpiece I fain would write,  I fear will be but rhyme;  Because the more of years I live  The less I have of time.  What  Would   Be   Left?  An education authority sub-committee was examining a class in a  school. One of thc members undertook to sharpen up the scholars' wits  by putting the following question:  "If I had a mince- pie and gave  two-twelfths lo Harry, and should  keep half the pie for myself, what  would there be left?"  There was a profound study among  the boys, but finally one lad held up  his hand as a signal that he was  ready,to answer.   ���������  "Well, sir, what would 'there be  left? Speak aloud, so that all can  hear," said the committee man.  "The plat-a!" shouted thc hopeful  fellow.  He was excused from answering  any more questions.  Milked  Her Dry  A farmer who had recently bought  a vacuum cleaner met a friend of his  and persuaded him to go home and  see it work. The farmer said-it would  clean anything. In front of the house  was a dirty cow. The friend humorously suggested that the cow be given  a dose of the cleaner. A few clays afterwards the friend met the farmer  and said:  "Did you ever try your vacuum  cleaner on the cow!"  "I did," laconically replied the  farmer.  "What happened?" asked the  friend.  "Milked her dry, begum!" said the  farmer.  Value of Laughter  A famous doctor once said, "En-,-  courage your child to be merry and  to laugh aloud; a good, hearty laugh  expands the chest and makes;the  blood bound merrily along. Commend  me to a good laugh���������not to a little,  sniggling laugh, but to one that'will  sound right through the house; it  will not onlv do your child good, but  will ��������� be a benefit to all who hear,  and be aiv important means of f driving the blues away from a dwelling.  Merriment is very catching and  spreads in a remarkable manner, few  being able to resist the contagion.  A hearty laugh is delightful harmony,  indeed, "it is the best of all music."  More Water Used .-,'"'���������.'  A writer in a New York paper notices a marked change in thc habits  of Londoners, and records the impression thus: Ten years ago, if you went  into any restaurant or hotel in London and swept your eye over the  tables at lunch time or during dinner,  you would see that the principal  things thereon were liquids in various colors in bottles ancl glasses, beer,  hock, red wine, sherry, champagne  and port. But if you go into any restaurant now you will find that the  principal burden of the tables besides  thc various dishes consists of carafes  of water, still or bubbling.  Gastronomy  A Frenchman ancl a Belgian were  discussing the. best method of eating  woodcock.  "I hang the woodcock up on a  nail by the beak and fasten some  larks on to its claws," said the  Frenchman. "After a week I throw  away the woodcock and eat the  larks, which by that time have' absorbed all the flavor of the woodcock." ���������  "I do the same," replied the Belgian, not to be outdone, "except that  I throw away the larks as well as the  woodcock and then eat the nail."  Where   Silence   is  Golden  A tourist called at an inn in Donegal and ordered a roll and butter and  some tea. It was brought, and on cutting the roll ho found a black beetle  in the middle.  "Here!" he called to the waiter,  "Take this and show it to the proprietor."  "I wouldn't be afthcr showing it to  the propriethor, if I were you, sor,"  said Pat. ��������� . .

'  Bible Society Report Tell-; of Riddles  Confronting Translators.  ' Some of the riddles than,have to be  solved before the, Bible can be translated into remote and barbaric tongues are cited, in that annual wonder  book, the popular illustrated report  of the British and Foreign Bible Society, the 1909-10;edition of which has  just been issued.'���������How, for example,,  can you find a name for "lamb"  among the inhabitant's'' of- some island where,the-only .quadrupeds are'  pigs and rats? How.can you render,  "whiter than -mow" in the dialects of  West-Africa,-where snow is utterly  unknown. ,  Occasionally the difficulty is one of  sheer space, , Lengua, the speech of  an Indian tribe in 'Paraguay, which  has been-furnished during the'past  year with the Gospel according to St.  Mark, is so unwieldly that the word  eighteen can only be ��������� represented  thus: "Sohogemek-wakthla-mok-emi-  nik-antanthlam." Literally- translated that means, ' "Finished my  hands,-pass to my other foot���������three,"  for finger and toes serve as units.  The word for butter 'in Lengua is,  ." Waitky-anamankukingninik-ikpith-  muk"���������which means, literally, "the  grease of the juice of the udder of tho  cow."  In New Guinea the translator wanted the proper ' idiom for "far be it  ���������from me to do this thing," so he consulted an intelligent catechumen.  "Yes," replied the catechumen, "I  understand" exactly.' We have_ the  precise idiom; we say, 'May I speak  to my mother-in-law before I will do  this thing?'" For in that land of  strange taboos one of the unpardonable, sins is for a man-to open his  li] j to his wife's mother.  ��������� During the past year the.Bible So-(  ciety - issued 6,620.000 copies of the  Bible or of parts of the Bible, . including translations into six additional languages bearing the outlandish names of Ongom, .Namau,  Houailou, Ponerihouen, Fiu, and  Eagii.

Hitherto the metal known as radium  has'been'certain salts with a radium  basis, such as bromide and chloride;  pure metallic radium has not been  known.  The isolation of pure* radium has  been accomplished by means of electricity, as the" result of the unremitting labor of-Madame Curie and her  co-laborer, M. Debierne. Thus isolated radium appears as a white metal which alters rapidly when it comes  in contact with the air, changing  from white to the condition of black  oxide. It burns paper, energetically  decomposes water, and adheres firmly to iron.  This is'about all that is known so  far of this mysterious metal. The investigators had only'-one decigram of  radium salt to" work with But since  they sealed the precious metal in a  tube as soon as they succeeded in  isolating it, they will be able to study  it at leisure.  ���������Jf  #���������  Two Scotchmen were out walking on  a warm day.

A Faithful Elephant. ,  A naturalist tells an anecdote of an  Indian elephant which is one of the  best proofs of the sense of the animal j  and of its power of communicating  its thoughts. An elephant was order, i  ed to drag a tree which proved too |  heavy for its strength. It was urged  and excited to continue its efforts till  the poor animal broke the chain by  which it was fastened arid ran- away.  All supposed it had escaped to the,  jungle, where it would mix with the  wild elephants and be seen no more.  But iu about an hour this faithful  and sensible servant of man returned, accompanied by two other elephants, and by their united strength  the tree was easily Temoved. The  other elphants disappeared after the  work was done, and the wise tame  elephant, remained.  An Amazing Apparition.  In connection "with one of" the parties given by the widowed Countess  of Ancaster a "strange story is told.  It was in 1893, and one of the guests,  a lady who had just arrived, said,  "I've just seen Sir' George Try on on  the stairs. He .looked..yery strange'  and white, .and did "not speak." But  Sir George' Tyron was' then in the  Mediterranean engaged in manoeuvres, and the lady was so informed.  She persisted, however, that it was  Sir George whom- she saw, for she  knew him extrtmely well. The next  day came the terrible news of the  Victoria and Camperd.own, and the  admiral's tragic-fate.  Last of Birnam Wood.  Near Dunkeld, in the Highlands of  Scotland, is liirnam, Macbeth's country. .There one may see two great  trees standing on the banks of tho  Tay, which are said to be at least  1,000 years old and among the few  which remain of the original Birnam  wood. These .two trees, a sycamore  and an oak, are large eriouth of themselves to have provided a goodly  army with branches, and the trunks  measure, at the. ground, fifteen feet  in diameter. :.-   ���������  Lydia E.Pinkham's Vegetable Compound Cured Her. .

How  it blooms again where the plow of  Time has passed.  A Eeal Man.  Speaking of the late Tom Raby  who died at White Bar, on the  North Fork of Rock Creek the  Hedley Gazette says:  Peace to his ashes.. He was  about the toughest and most wiry  piece of man flesh to be found anywhere and not a lazy bone in his  body. At 75 years he would make  a bigger showing in the day with  pick and shovel than most of the  younger men of one-third his age.  He had a high sense of honor aud  was as proud as Lucifer, we doubt  if there is a man in the country  who can say that he knows of Tom  Raby ever doing a dishonorable  action or beating any mau out of a  cent. It is not likely that he had  left more of this world's goods  than will be enough to bury him  but that doesn't matter and detracts nothing from the real manhood of the man. He simply lived  his own life in his own way, content with his dog companions of  which he always had one; they died  one by one of old age, their master  being all cheir years their most devoted slave. Long after he is gone  tales will be told of how he toiled  on the Creek living on bacon himself and buying fresh beef for his  dog Benny.  "He prayeth well; who loveth well  Both man and bird and beast  He prayeth best who loveth best  All things both great ami small:  For the dear God who loveth us  He made and loveth all."

Hi* who expresses the truth may  find this life chequered, but never  dull.    CoaursHii' may be a polite deception, but marriage is a fine eye-  opener.  A li, down tbe ages the clergy  have stood for slavery, and shivered  at the thought of freedom.  The work of Nature cannot be  nullified by forms and ceremonies  ancl that is one reason why matrimonial laws have caused so much  sin and misery on this planet.  The failure of the grape crop in  France will raise the price of champagne. This will have a tendency  to force the use of water or whiskey  upon the poorer classes of people.  P.

The highest point reached by  any railway in the world is on the  Morococha branch of the Central  Railway of Pern, a wholly broad-  gauge line operated by the Peruvian Corporation, the altitude of  the rails at the highest point on  the back-bone of the Andes being  exactly 15,805 feet above sea level.  Ticlio, the western portal of the  Galera tunnel and the point of  junction of the Morococha branch  with the main line, is the highest  railway station in the world, at  lo,GG5 feet. To reach this point  from sea level the line passes thru  fifty-seven tunnels, over a dozen  principal bridges, and utilizes  thirteen switch-backs, but has i.o  gradient up to 4-i- per cent, nor  does it resort to rack propulsion.  A hand-car started at Ticlio will  run unaided to Callao, the seaport,  and as a matter of fact such a car,  equipped with safe brakes, runs  before each passenger train, carrying an inspector on the lookout for  fallen rocks or other dangers. The  grandeur of the scenery along this  route cannot be imagined. The.  second highest railway iii the world  is that from Antofagasta in Chile  to Oruro ami La Paz in Bolivia,  and is perhaps the narrowest gauge  line for such a long distance, being  21 feet in width of track. The  highest' point is at Colluhuapi,  where the altitude is 15,S09 feet,  50 feet lower than the Peruvian  line.���������Peru To-Day.  Riches and Poverty.  It is well known that Andrew  Carnegie is a man of very few  words. However, he made a very  characteristic speech some time  since to his veteran comrades in  the telegraph service in which be  was engaged during a part of the  period of the civil war. He says:  "Comrades, I was born in poverty,  and would not exchange its sacred  memories with the richest millionaire's son who ever breathed.  What'does-he 'know', about mother  or father? These are mere names  to him. Give me the life of tbe  boy whose mother is nurse, seamstress, washerwoman, cook,teacher,  angel and saint; all in one, and  whose father is guide, examplar  and friend. No servants to come  between. These are the boys who  are born to the best fortune. Some  man think that poverty is a diead-  ful burden, and that wealth leads  to happiness. What do they know  about it? They know only one  side, they imagine the other. 1  have lived both, and I know there  is very little in wealth that cau  add to human happiness beyond  the small comforts of life. Millionaires who laugh are very rare. My  experience is that wealth is apt to  take the smiles away."  TRUSTING:.  Nobody runs over a child if he  can help it. Even a thief will  bring you back your pobketbook if  you trust him to take care of it.  It is the trusting that does it. Few  men, no matter how crooked, can  resist the temptation of reaching,  if only for a moment, an honest  man's level.���������F. Hopkinsou Smith,  B- 0. Voters' Lists.

A Califoriiiau who was shooting quail  in a large vineyard near Santa Rosa had  met with excellent success. Indeed his  "bag" was so fine a one that au element  of mystery entered into the affair.  At first he thought he must be shooting  tame quail, the birds behaved so strangely, refusing to fly until almost trodden  underfoot and then fluttering through the  air in a most unnatural manner.  The hunter's dog continued to bring in  live birds, which he supposed at the outset he had wounded; but when their number began to exceed the number of his  shots the fact was borne in upon him that  this was a very strange hunt.  Finally he came upon a bird lying upon  his back and kicking. He picked it up.  It appeared to be uninjured, Setting it  upon its legs, he watched to see what it  would do. It staggered and floundered a  few feet farther and then tell helplessly  on its back.  Then a stispicion-of the truth came to  the hunter, and he proceeded to investigate. It turned out Hint the quail had  been feeding on frost-bitten grapes, which  had fermented on the vines. Tliey were  quite drunk, and as completely incapacitated as human beings are in similar con-  Hurry Up.  She was a beautiful statuesque  blonde who had changed her residence from New York to Philadelphia and secured a position as stenographer in the office of a staid, dignified citizen of good old Quaker  descent. On the morning of her  first appearance she went straight  to the desk of the boss. "I presume," she remarked, "that you  begin the day over here the same  as they do in New York?" "Oh,  yes," replied the boss, without  glancing from the letter he was  reading. "Well hurry upand kiss  me, then," was the startling re-  joiner, "I want to get to work."  Cured Him.  A little man in the west of England rushe 1 to the river last summer, swearing that he would drown  himself. When he had waded in  to the depth of his waist, his wife,  who had followed him, seized him  by the hair, and then, at* a local  editor described it, "she led him  back till he reached a place where  tho water was about two feet deep,  where she pulled him over backwards, and soused him under, and  pulled his head up again."  "Drown yourself (down he went,)  leaving me to father the brats 1  (another plunge) get drunk! (another souse) and start for the river!  (another dip.) Better use the  water instead of rum! (another dip  aud shake of the head.) I'll larn  ye to leave me a widow!" After  sozzling him to her heart's content,  she led him out a wetter if not a  better man, and escorted him into  the house, and closed the door,  I  N the interests of the  public, the local health  authorities strongly urge  all licence holders, householders and agents for  vacant buildings, to immediately proceed to  place their premises in a  sanitary and cleanly  condition Prompt com  pliance with the above  request will prove most  satisfactory to all concerned.

It required a man of groat parts to b������  ��������� successful publisher at that time, as  much as or even more than it doos today.  Suoh an institution, for example, as the  Sorbonne or University of Paris required  the highest guarantees of character, capital and literary capacity in the licensed  bookseller. Ho must bo an adopt in al]  the knowledge and soiooce of the period,  as well as perfectly skilled in tho mechanical needs of his business. The university,  too, whioh was always in close touch with  the ohurch, oven whon its studies had begun to broaden, exercised a jealous censorship, lest somo religious heresy should  creep in. Whenever an error of this or  even of a more trivial sort was found, the  transorlpts were burned and the bookseller heavily fined. Sometimes his privileges  might be entirely revoked, indeed, and he  himself imprisoned. The bookseller could  Dot even fix a price on his own product*  Four of the guild in Paris, for example,  were sworn as appraisers by the authorities of the Sorbonne to fix the soiling value  of a boob, and any deviation from this was  a penal offense. To students the price was  fixed at two-thirds of the charge asked of  the general purchaser. The booksellers  oould not dispose of their entire stock and  trade without tholicensoof the univorsity,  wbUh must, also approve the purchaser.  As an additional help to students, the Sorbonne in themiddle of tho fourteenth century framed a law compelling all booksellers to koep books to loud out on hire,  And this examplo was imitated at Toulouse, Bologna, Vienna and Oxford. ���������; In  this way circulating libraries were established In the middle ages.���������Harper's  Round Table.  NO HELP FOE IT.  The late .Senator Pettus of Alabama,  was u devote-; of draw poker. Pie did  not care whether he won or lost. All he  wanted to do was to sit at a table, draw  curds and bet his money. One evening  he arrived at Tate Spring, in Rust Tennessee, and began his hunt for a game.  At last he located one, ami confided to a  friend that he was going to spend the  night in the game. "Hut," objected the  friend, "that's a crooked game, Those  fellows will rob you." "Well, I'm going  to play anyway,-' said Pettus. "What  else can I do? It's the only game in  town."  Ninety-Seven Miles an Hour.  This country can now lay claim to haying broken the record-in railway speed.  A mile has been made in thirty-seven  seconds and two miles in seventy-five  seconds, while drawing a regular train  of four cars on a descending grade of  .thirty-two feet to tlie mile. This corres  ponds to a speed of about ninety-seven  miles an hour and leaves a very small  margin 1-eyond which to-attain tho 100  miles an hour  speed, which lias heretofore been regarded as impossible on ������  steam railroad.   In the reports of this  wonderful performance it is stated that  there was no preparation made for the  test, and that "a more unfavorable time  could not  have   been   chosen, as the  rain   poured   in   torrents during the  day and only censed half an hour before  tho time acheduled   to leave Philadelphia."   This statement is now questioned and one writer holds that instead of  being an unfavorable time for such a  test of speed it was a most propitious  opportunity.' The rain wot the rails and  tho lubricating qualities of water, acted  to greatly reduce tlio rolling friction of  the wheols upon them;   The reduction  of this friction was tho same as an addition of power in tlie locomotive, and the  phenomenal speed obtained under theso  conditions suggest, to tlie Courier-Jour  nal some thoughts concerning this form  of friction, and its action in increasing  the resistance of trains.   It is difficult to  foretell how soon the average speed of  steam travel will bo permanently increased.   Tlio   cost   of  such   increase  must   bo   ci'iisidcroil as vital   to the  question at issue, mid in this calculation  the rapid rato at which tho' train resistance increiiKw with iucronsod speed will  play an inipi-rliiiH part.   Becent experiments set'in  lo ihovv that resistance at  high biiooiI.s imiofc so groat as has boon  generally hiij posed. Tlio figures hitherto  i'noled in c iliiit on a level track, at forty  miles an hour, tho resistance is about  double that at twenty-five miles an hour  nnd at sixty miles an hoor it has again  doubled, being respectively seven, thirteen and twenty-five pounds per ton. It  Is, at all ovonts, certain that any experiments having in view the adoption of n  higher average speed on railroads must  bo'uecoiiipariied by a proportionate ad  '.:inco in system and safety ai*nliance������  .

Another social phenomenon baa been  laid nt tho door of the Teutonio race of  northern Europe, ono which even more  than divorce Ib direotly the oonoomitant  of modern intellectual and economic progress.

Morselll devotes  a chapter of bis Interesting treatise upon  this subject to proving that "the purer the  Gorman race���������that is to say, the stronger  tho Germanism (e, g., Teutonlsm) of a  country���������tho nioro it reveals In its psychical oharaoternn extraordinary propensity  to solf destruction," On the other hand,  the Slavic pooples ncom to him to be relatively immune. These conclusions he  draws from detailed comparison of the  distribution of suloldo in tho various countries of wostorn Europo, and it must bo  confessed that ho has collected data for a  very plausible caso. Thoro can bo no doubt  that in Germany tho phenomenon ouluil-  natos in frequouoy for all Europo, and that  It tends to disappear in almost diroot proportion to tho attenuation of the 'i'uiitnnlo  racial oharaotorlotlca olsowhero.������������������Williuni  Z.
