The Greenwood hockey team returned from the Rossland carnival  Sunday with the International cup.  They would" have won the B. C.  championship cup had not Rochon  been severely injurad and unable  to play in tbe final' games. ,The  boys made a splendid record, only  losing one game. They defeated  both Moyie and Nelson easily,  losing to Phoenix in the B. C. cup.

An excursion train was run to  Rossland Saturday morning with  the intention of getting there in  time for the afternoon game. Two  extra player3 were on the train.  The excursion left here at 8 o'clock  and was scheduled to arrive in  Rossland at 2 p. m., but it didn't.  The motive power was some scrap-  iron, with smoke-stack, lire and  steam boxes, throttle and cowcatcher���������tho latter really unnecessary. All this metal wa3 carefully mounted on several sets of  brakele?s wheels. The train fiaally  got .in motion," aided by some" of  the crew with piuch bars. It  worked its way carefully to Eholt-,  Grand Forks-and through the bulldog tunnel, keeping within hailing distance of schedule time. On  the down grade, with accelerated  speed, the cow-catcher left the  scrap heap and'anchored itself and  the traiu. Then was seen the reason for the brakeless wheels and  the real object of carrying the cowcatcher. Tlie misfortune occurred along the Columbia and might  have resulted in a very serious accident and the loss of many lives.  A locomotive was procured aud  the train arrived in Rossland two  hours late and an hour after the  game had been played.  There  aro  iivNidton.

Copyright, 1909, by American Press  Association.  It wus ii quoerly placed little bouse,  thin old homo, perched nearly a hundred feet above the wide asphalted  street that had been graded through  the hill crest to tho river, u hundred  and fifty yardj distant to the west.  There was u ragged front of jugged  rock from the street liuo up tc the little garden in front-of the old colonial  house at the top or the man in tide  cliff. Slinky with age, a fence of white  palings ran along the edge of the precipice as if to fend off the hated city  from the innocent, fresh,country beauty thai (lifted over its rickety top with  the street below.  i*'or Nature was In league against  the paling. She strived to cover the  rocks with blossoming honeysuckle,  vines and gorgeous wistaria clusters  and hung the llowers. like ripening  grapes. In the- seamy sides of the cliff  where the dynamite had In tearing tho  live rock in twain opened wide crevices  und gaping wounds in hor side.  The top of the hill and the garden  were readied by a long flight of wooden stairs���������stairs weather worn and  shabby for want of paint.  At the top of the stairs was a high  gate.  Beyond the gaie the city disappeared.  No murmur of it reached you in the  garden.  Here were deep woods of giant oaks,  their bases carpeted with violets and  strawberry blossoms and now and  then masked by blackberry patches.  Tbe garden was a mass of color.  Great bushes of pink peonies flanked  one side of the graveled walk from  the gate, rivaling tlie array of white  blossoms on the other side of the  walk. The palings were blddeu with  blossoming Jacq-.iin roses and lilac  bushes. In the center of the lawL was  a bonny brier alive with tiny wmte  flowers.  Out on the terrace Miss Suowden sat  iu her rustic rocker. A dainty sunbon-  net protected her sallow face, just  now puckered with a frown because  of the Ming her niece gave the gate as  she burst into the garden.  Aliss Suowden sighed plaintively as  the girl came up tbe walk, her white  tam-o'-shanter perched on the side  of her head at a rakish angle iu odd  contrast lo the primly dressed flaxen  hair drawn taut around tbe little bead  to tbe long braid dangling behind.  She swung u voll of parchment tied  with a blue ribbon in tier baud uud  humined a little song, as if there were  no such thiugs as au elder aunt's  nerves.     '  "Now. what's the matter, aunty?"  she queried, halting iu front of Miss  Suowden at the sight of the frown.  "Matter? Why. uothiug. child." protested .Miss Snowdeu, running her linger along the edge of ber crochetiug  and beginning a new count.  Tbe girl dabbed at her hat until It  assumed a more dignified if uot a more  becoming poise.  "Mamma any better, aunty?" she  asked. Then, without waitiug an au*  swer, she dropped ou the lawn. "Aud  who do you think was thereV"  "1  am  sure  1  don't  kuow.    How  should 1?"  Miss Snowden worked furiously.  "Colouel I'ayson."    The girl looked  up shyly.   "The one the papers are all  so full about.   Tou know, who's just  back from the Philippines."  Miss Snowden did not speak.  "Thiuk of him coming till the way  up here to our dinky little commencement:"  "Josle!" gasped Miss Snowden, horrified.  "Hut it was dinky���������awfully dinky!"  persisted her niece.  "lie's the loveliest man you ever  saw, aunty���������so tall and straight���������and  he walks with his shoulders thrown  back and his head up. His hair Is  only just beginning to turn gray. 1  could see that all the older girls were  stealing sly looks at him. hut he didu't  take any notice of them. He came  right up to uie and looked at uie so  queer. One would think he'd uever  seen a girl like uie before. He shook  hands with uie and held my hand in  his for a long while, still looking at  uie with that strange, wistful look. I  wotider what be did in the Philippines  to make lilm so famous. He' must be  awful brave."  "Indeed?" Miss Snowden muttered.  She was thinking deeply ns she bent  over those crochet needles. The evening light was fading. The sun had  transformed the river at the end of  the street into a flood of flaming color.  Had he recognized tbe child?  "Oh. nnnty. I want to tell you something: I wish you would listen." broke  In her niece. "He was awful nice,  but-buf-  "But what?" asked .Miss Snowden.  "He kissed tne." the girl replied In  an n.westrlcken whisper, looking down  nt the river.  The elderly Miss Snowden quivered.  She could not speak. Presently the  girl, tilled with embarrassment, plucked nt the ribbon of ber diploma, then  slowly rose aud went Into the house,  her cheeks Hushed and ber pretty head  bowed.  The colors trooped In the evening  tky; dusky shadows appeared In the  old garden. She sat, ber beud leaned  back and ber eyea fixed upon tbe bonny  brier.  "Aunty," called the girl softly from  the bouse, "supper Is ready 1"  The elderly Miss Bnowden made no  reply. The girl In the doorway stood  wultlug. Presently she stolo Into the  garden and pillowed her head numbly  In tbe lap of the elderly Miss Suowden.  "After all my care, Josle," mtir.  mured the' elderly Miss Suowdeu-  "after I had taught you bow evil men  are!"  '  "Wns It really so awful?" The girl  looked up pensively. "Every one  thought so.  Cut it seemed all right."  "Josie!" the elderly Miss Suowden  ejaculated In shrill horror. Her hand  grew rigid upon the girl's head.  Years before there had beeu a wedding under Miss Snowden's roof. Theu  had come a baby girl, nnd, the mother  being In delicate health, Miss Snowden  hud the entire care of the child. Sho  used to bathe her and dress her, put  her to bed nt night aud lie with her  till she went to sleep. The girl baby  had grown to be a girl when the young  husband aud father, who was a soldier  in the service of the United States,  sailed for the other side of the globe  with liis rogitneut and remained avvuy  a long while.  But the time came when he became  impatient that he beard nothing ot his  wife and child. He sent a trusted  messenger, who in due time returned  with die news that (bey were both  dead. lie mourned for them and  when he was ordered home with his  command naturally sought tbe placo  where he had left them. It was a  risky game Miss Snowden. who had  sent back Ihe report that his wife and  child were dead, was playing. And  now she had come to the end of passable deception.  Some one was coming up the path.  A inati!  lie was opening tlie gate!  "It's be:" gasped tho girl, rising in  dismay.  She lied toward tho house, leaving  Miss Snowden to face tho enemy.  Lie canto leisurely up tbe path, stopping now uud then to caress a peony  in a reminiscent way.  "Well, sir.' How dare you como  here?" rang out the challenge from  the rocking chair and brought him to  a halt at the bonny brier.  "I am looking for the parent of a  Miss Pnysou," lie said quietly, "one of  the young ladies who graduated Irom  the high school toda3\ I am Colonel  Robert 13. I'ayson. May I ask whom 1  am addressing?"  "I ���������I refuse lo answer, sir:" responded the elderly Miss Snowden hesitatingly. "Vour presence is an intrusion  ���������a great intrusiou."  He bent his head slightly and listened to the voice rather than the  words.  "I know your voice," be said slowly.  "It seems connected with something  very distasteful. But 1 catinot place  you."  He stood lu profound (bought for a  moment.  "The reason I called." he said deliberately, "is rather curious. Kleven  years ago I went to the Philippines,  leaving a wife and a four-year old  girl. They were to follow when the  country became settled. News readied uie a year later that they had died.  Little Miss I'ayson looked so much  like my wife in her girlhood that it-  it���������well, filled me with'u wild, unreasonable hope that perhaps there bad  been some mistake."  Miss Suowdeu preserved a venomous  silence.  "These peonies, the honeysuckle, the  wistaria," he murmured, moviug about  tbe garden, "all speak so strougly of  my wife that it seems to me she must  be here."  Miss Snowden's niece came down tho  walk from the house. Behind her,  clasping her baud, was a slender little  woman.  Miss Snowden. heariug the steps on  the path, turned, stared helplessly and  straightened up in her rocker.  "Bessie, haven't you any more  pride?" she cried shrilly. "Think, he  never wrote when you were nearly  dead: Think of the report his corporal  brought me! Think of his not coming  home for all these years! Think of  his never answering your letters:"  The colonel darted forward up the  path.  Miss Suowden flashed past, pale with  auger aud venom nnd fear.  Inside the house she hurried to;the  big old,;. fashioned kitchen, locked the  doors and from the cupboard drew  forth a packet of letters and threw  them into the range.  "They'll uever know." she muttered,  staring at the packet, feeling vaguely  the shadows of coining desolation aud  isolation creeping upon her.While the  vicious jealousy of years burned aud  flamed in her heart.  There was a gentle knock on Ihe  kitchen door after the knob had been  turned. She did not heed.  "They've told each other." she muttered, "and now they know that I did  it. He had no right to take her from  me.  I was so alone."  She sat In Ihe kitchen chair and  stared into the future.  Aud what did she see? For herself  a lonely old age imblttered by remorse, for her niece life for a few  years with her reunited parents In tbe  army-post, then love, then marriage  with a young ollicer and a group of  rosy cheeked, bright eyed children  springing up about her. Then she saw,  but it did not enable l>*r to throw off  her selfish regret, that the other's gulu  was her loss, for a selfish nature cannot become n generous one.

In every printing office the compositors indulge in-little jokes by setting up items and advertisements  which ure not charged for on the  union scale, and which, of course (unless by some untoward accident),  never appear in the newspaper. One  night, or rather one morning, about  three o'clock, two compositors were  proceeding homeward on ' Queen  street east, Toronto, when they came  upon an old coat. Its owner had  apparently been in that state of mind  in whioh outer garments seem a superfluous burden, and he hud calmly  taken it off and dropped it on the  sidewalk. The printers picked it up  and found in it the time card of some  man evidently engaged in mechanical  pursuits. St. Paul's Roman Catholic  Church was hard by, so they hung  the coat on the church fence and proceeded homeward. They happened to  mention the incident'in the office, and  a night or two later the assistant  foreman called ono of them over and  showed him a condensed advertisement set up on the galley. It described the coat and the time card, and  asked for the return of the garment,  stating that there had been ?500 in  the inside pocket, and that the one  returning it would be liberally regarded. The two "comps." spent the  rest of the night in cursing their oversight in having failed to examine the  inside pockets. They even made an  examination of the churchyard on the  way home on an off-chance that the  coat might be still there. The advertisement, of course, did not appear  in the paper next morning, and then  they  twigged  the  joke.  A favorite hoax in large composing  rooms, when some particular personage was showing signs of "chesti-  ness," used to be to set up a fake  advertisement from the management  for n successor, and by some means  attract the individual's attention  thereto. It usually had the effect of  making him extremely anxious for  an hour or two. Occasionally a joke  of this kind would slip into the columns of the paper in the hurry of  getting out a form, and then there  would be trouble downstairs. For this  reason the foreman of a well organized composing room looks with a de-:  preeating eye on jokes with the type.  The Vagaries of Slang.  Not long since an eminent Canadian Senator advised the students of  Toronto University to avoid slang as  they would a serpent. Not all of us  take so severe a view. There are  some rare growths of slang that are  really a short cut to clear and accurate expression. It is notorious,  however, that the slang habit, aided  by the writers of the sporting columns  of the newspapers, has obtained a  rank luxuriance which would "make  the conversation of the average young  man of to-day almost unintelligible  to any Rip Van Winkle who went  to sleep in the eighties and came to  life this week. So great a hold.has  it taken ' on' the people of this continent, that they unconsciously express themselves in slang at the most  serious moments. At one of the big  conventions held in Toronto this autumn, this habit gave a farcical turn  to a very pathetic episode.  A telegram was delivered to an American delegate, and two of his friends  saw that -when he opened it, his face  changed. He held the telegram in his  hand and as though in a daze, und  then the tears commenced to trickle  down his cheeks. They hastened to  hirn with the words, "What's the  matter, old man?"  - He held out the telegram and said  in a broken voice: "Say, what do  you know about that? My mother's  dead.   Ain't it awful, Mabel."  Daisy Did For Him.  Friends of a certain amateur gardener in Toronto are having a good  laugh at his expense. Always- looking for something new to try in his  greenhouse, he studies every sr-ed catalogue that comes his way. The title  "Michaelmas Daisies" caught his eye,  and the description following chained  his .fancy. He determined to raise  those delicately petalled star-like purple blooms, and wrote forthwith for  the seeds. He planted, tended, and  cared for them and all went well with  the little strangers. They sprouted  up in profusion, and, when thinning  out the bunch the enthusiast kindly  remembered other friends who had a  like botanical interest. Not a whit  discomfited by the transplanting  those given away . also. grew apace  and all blossomed out about the same  time.  INJURED fOOT CURED.

A prominent medical man, who suffered with v. severe cough and cold on  the lungs, often being kept awake all  night, and weakened by loss of sleep,  finally discovered a simple formula  which will cure any lough in five  hours by the clock. It is' a laxative  tonic cough syrup which can be made  at home by anyone and the formula is  here given for the benefit of those who  pass sleepless nights in painful paroxysms. Those who have tried it say  it is "magical, and beats any high-  priced, slow-acting cough medicine  ever sold.  Mix in a bottle one-half ounce fluid  wild cherry bark, . one ounce compound essence cardiol and three  ounces syrup white pine compound.  Take twenty drops every half hour for  four' hours. Then take one-half to  one teaspoonful three or four times a  day. Give children less according to  age. This will tone up and rid the  system of deep-seated coughs every  time.

FOB HALE BT ILh DIUTaOIBTa  Fancy the chagrin of the seed purchaser when it dawned upon him in  his own greenhouse and was forced  upon his attention in several others  that his "Michaelmas Daisies" were  nothing more or less than common,  ordinary, wild asters.  Jollying Hon. Mr. Fisher.  Glen Campbell, M.P., caused the  Dominion Minister of Agriculture an  anxious moment the other day, but it  was only a joke. Referring to a  newspaper report which reiterated  some criticism of Hon. Sydney Fish-  or's administration of his Department, he said the newspaper had not  gone far enough. Ho w������uld, therefore, make the deliberate charge "that  there is no Department.under the administration of the Government  where, in certain seasons of the year,  there is so much grafting as in his  Department."  A way of deciding dates of certain  important events is suggested by the  following anecdote from Lippincott's.  The parents of an under grad. were  disputing as to the date of their last  letter to their son, whom they had not  heard from for some time, to relieve  the distress of the mother.  "Are you sure, Thomas," asked the  mother, unconvinced, "that it "was on  the 12th that you last wrote to Dick?"  "Absolutely!" was the father's decisive response, "I looked it up in my  checkbook this morning."

The table  was there all rigbt, .but in place of the  smoking breakfast that Red's'hungry  imagination bad conjured up there  were only some fragments ol loaves of  black bread and a pitcher of water,  while seated about the table were four  half starved children.  Tbe woman explained to Red that  they were themselves nearly starving,  that sbe was a widow und that a  grown son, ber sole support, bad wan-:  dered off- months since in search of  employment, but that she never turned a hungry man away unfed at least  with such as she hud and euded by  bidding bim sit up to their frugal  board.  - But Red did not move. He stood In  tbe middle ol the floor and stared as  though hypnotized. He stured at the  partly eaten pieces of dry bread, at  .the famished looking children, at the  pale faced woman und at the room in  general, wbereiu want was written everywhere. He stared for. a full minute, aud then, without a word, he turned aud strode out of tbe room.. And  the woman noticed that be did uot  limp as be went out ns be bad done  when be came in.  Outside, Red made for tbe nearest  alley, divested himself of bis "makeup," stored the bandages in a bundle  for future use and started' uptown.  An inspiration bad come to Mr. Red  of'Milwaukee.  He bad been In Frisco many times  before, and be knew the ropes at a  certain cheap eating place south of  Market street. Once in a moment of  weakness he had accepted a position  in the place lor a few days wnsuiug  dishes.  Red went boldly into a meat market and said: "I'm after de meat for  Johnnie's bash factory. Johnnie sent  me.   Dey wuuts teu pounds."  The butcher looked ut Red. "Just  some (rump disbwusuer at Jounnles,"  he thought to himself. "He acquires a  new one every other day. I'll cnunce  it's being all right."  Red hiked with tbe meat, but not to  Johnnie's. He uest lay for a baker's  wagon. Pretty soon one rattled past  ������nd stopped in front of a bouse, lied  watched his ehunce, and as "tire driver  ran around the bouse "with two louves  of bread he helped himself to four  nice, fresh warm ones IrouTu box up  ou top.  Butter and milk were next on his  shopping list, and these he stole from  back doors where the articles bad been^  left, it being yet early in tbe morning  and Red being an artist in this klud  of foraging.  A hulf hour later the kind hearted  though poverty stricken woman who  hud offered Red a share of what she  had was surprised to Uud on ber back  porch the food he had collected, together with the following crudely written note:  Deer Madum-Dese tings arc for you  Don't say nothln about It to nobody. Jen-  turn de Kids loos on It. A FRENU.  The next inorulug another aud similar offering was fouud on the porch  and eagerly appropriated, the poor  family supposing It to be tbe work of  some charitably disposed person, as  In fact it was. though tbe tramp who  had called nt their door was farthest  from their thoughts.  These early morning donations continued with scarcely nn interruption  for three weeks. Souje mornings there  would be articles of'clothiug for both  children and ndults as well as food.  Of the latter, there was a great variety  ���������as great n variety, iu fact, as the  source from which it came."  "Wat yer rustlin' so hard fer all de  time. Ited?" asked Kelly the Rum one  night when they met In an alley where  some empty barrels afforded free Lodgings.  "Got a fambly to support," waa  Red's terse reply.  "A which?" exclaimed Kelly, scarcely crediting his ears.  ������������������'���������  "A fambly," repeated Red.  "You sure must be nutty," said Kelly, with alarm, as though in fear of  bodily harm.  Then Red bad to explain tho situo  Uon. -I ain't goin' to see them kids go  hungry," ho said, "not as long as 1  ran rustle."  "You'll git pinched an' sent over de  road fust thing yer know," warned  Kelly.  "Can't help It none," said Red.  "Them kids Is goin' to eat as long as  J'ui here."  "Where does yer fambly reside, Mr.  Milwaukee Red?" inquired Kelly, with  ��������� mock obeisance.  "Out Russian Hill way," Red told  bim.  Ignoring  tho  other's sarcastic  manner.   ,  MijusHlun.IlUl^..*Mt^..Ke,,Jrj ttu>  cynicism in  his voIce\ changing to a  note of interest  "Yes, Russian Hill," repeated Red.  "Wat's remarkable about those?"  "Nothiu'," said Kelly, * with forced  effort to appear unconcerned. ,Aud  then, after a moment during which  ueitber spoke, he asked: "Where does  them people live? Worked that section  meseif once."  Red told him the street and described-the house, wondering tbe while,  though not appearlug to notice the  strange effect, the information seemed  to produce upon bis pal.  "An' yer been feedin' 'em fer a  month." mused Kelly.  "Yes.' au* I'll be feedin* 'em fer another month unless���������unless ber son  (-omes back. Reckon he's bummln'  somewhere same us you au' me.  Didn't like to tell tbe old woman!  though. Say. pal. If 1 bad some kin  folks o' me own to hustle fer I'd���������I'd  quit the road un' go to work."  Kelly did uot answer at once. He  seemed to have lost tbe power of  speech and to be lost in thought,  thougb Red knew him too well to try  to force bis ragged frieud to unbosom  bimself.  Finally Kelly pulled himself together and said: "Well, must be golu'.  .Uota beu on. No, don't need no help.  See yer tomorrow." Aud then be added impressively:. "Red, whatever yer  do, - dou't git pinched. Hear me?  Keep yer eye peeled an' don't git  pinched.   S' long."  "S" lotig^ Kelly." said Red. "Look  out yer don't git pinched yerself."  There was no denying it was a grim  risk Red was running, as was indicated by tue following news Item which  appeared prominently tbe next day iu  a city paper:  SXEAK   THIEVES   INFESTING   HILL  Ul STRICT.  Recently sneak thieves have been plying  their trade In the ttussian Hill district so  industriously that! there is an , insistent  call for more police protection.

And besides tbe risk which be knew  be was -running Red felt "the weigbt  of the responsibility which be bad voluntarily .assumed. Looking out for  himselt was au easy matter. .Long experience bad made him a past muster  lu tbe high art of living without working. But looking out for himself and  supporting "a fambly" were two different propositious.  However, ne bad not long to earry  the burden. One morning���������it was a  week since Kelly's sudden disappearance���������Red wns surprised to find the  poor woraau awaiting him on the oft  visited back porch. .   _<-'  Their surprise was mutual. Tor the  woman at once recognized in Red tbe  tramp with whom sbe had offered to  divide her crust several weeks previous.  "Aud f8 it really you who have been  doing this?" she questioned, as though  doubting ber senses.  "1 reckon 'taint nobody else, mum,"  said Red.  "flow cau I thank or ever repay  you?" she suld. ber lips trembling.  "Don't try to do neitner one, mum,"  advised Red, longing lor some avenue  of escape. "How's yer gittlu' erloug?  How's tbe kids?"  "Ob, that is what I was waiting to  see you or whoever brought tbe things  about," said tbe woman. "We don't  need belp any more.

He was gone so long,  and we didn't know wbere be was.  But be says he'll never leave us again.  We're all so bappy! It seems as'  though you buve brought us good  luck. I want you to come this evening  and see'my Will. He'll be so glad to  see you."  Red looked past the woman and saw  a coat which he easily recognized as  Kelly's banging upon a peg Just with-  iu the kitchen door. And bis pare  strange behavior ou tbe nigbt of tbeli  last conversation was nt once explained.  "Don't see bow I can come, mum,"  he said, "but tell Kelly-I mean Wil1.  ���������that I'm glad he's doln' so well and  to stay with his new job."  And before the birppy woman could  detain him or press upou bim more  words of gratitude Red was out tbe  gate aud go tie.  But one day they saw nn item in a  newspaper about a tramp being run  over by an automobile and lying in a  hospital with a broken leg. Something  In tho reporter's reference to the man  led those whom Red had befriended to  think it was he. Going to the hospital, true enough there was tbelr old  friend. As soon us he was able to be  moved tliey took hltn borne with them,  and as they were now in a more prosperous condiffon they kept him till be  had grown stroug again. Then he Insisted on going out to resume-hls  tramps. They tried to persuade him  to stay with them and get work, but  he shook bis head grimly and walked  away. ' ���������   A Gardening Peer.

The island of Aitutaki, one of the  ilervey, group, in the Pacilic, is surrounded by islets underneath which  ..re submarine caverns, the home of  sharks. The natives classify them as  iagoon sharks, which are quite ferocious- at times and' spare nothing  they "can seize. The lagoon', shark,  about six feet long, is esteemed a  delicacy, and the natives supply their  feasts with the toothsome dish by a  remarkable  style  of fishing.  Arrived over the entrance to the  -shark cave, the fisherman leaves his  canoe to the care of his companions  and dives to the bottom, carrying  with him a slipknot of strong cord.  He expects to find two or three sharks  at home, well satisfied and drowsy  after feeding in the lagoon, with their  tails toward the entrance. Selecting  the largest, the diver adroitly adjusts  a noose over, the tail, taking care that  it hangs loosely! If he has another  noose he secures a second shark.  The shark catcher now, with one  bound on the white, sandy bottom,  rises to the surface in order to assist  his friends in .hauling up the fish.  The ustonished sleepers beneath suddenly find themselves ascending tails'  first to the surface. Once inside the  canoe a smart blow from an axe between the eyes or on the nose ends  the career of the fish.  One of' tlie most successful shark  catchers at Aitutaki was Reubena.  Long practice had made him almost  amphibious. One morning he started  off with two companions to one of the  more distant islets. ���������  On entering it Reubena found several sharks lazily resting themselves  In a trice a slipknot was skillfull}  passed over the tail of the nearest  shark without exciting its ire. Th������  shark at this critical juncture moved  so that there was not room enough  for Eeubena to get out.  He gently stroked the side of the  shark and succeeded in inducing it  to move away so as to permit his  exit. This operation is said to be vory  agreeable to the fish, but if through  nervousness the shark be stroked the  wrong way its anger is sure to be excited and the diver's life would be  the certain forfeit.  Reubena was making his escape  when, to his dismay, another large  shark came back from feeding in the  lagoon and blocked up the entrance  with his unwieldy body. To get out  now was impossible, for even Reubena dared not stroke the head of the  monster.  The captive fisherman waited, hoping the shark would go further in sc  as to leave the opening free. Thfl  huge fish did not move. Reubena's  agony became intense. Seconds see'm-  ed to ' be hours. At last the shark  passed on quietly into the interior,  and Reubena was barely able to gilt  out of the cave and rise to the sul-  face.

Give Goldfish Shade.  A friend was showing me her collection of goldfish the other day witA  great pride. The tiny fish were darting about here and there in the clear  water, and, then resting for awhilo,  they found life very pleasant.  - Some people do not seem to realise  that it * is positive cruelty to keep  these fish in an open vessel without  any shade.  Fish have no lids to shield their  eyes, as we have, and so cannot endure a bright light. They suffer greatly if entirely exposed, as is evident  from the way in which they dash  around and around, sometimes until  they-are fairly worn out.  Shade can easily be provided by  placing growing plants, dense enough  to shelter the fish, near the globe in  which they are kept or by placing a  grotto of rocks in the aquarium itself.

Though I had the services of a skilled doctor for a time,  I did not recover my strength, and  gradually I grew so weak that I  could not do any housework. As I  seemed to grow steadily weaker I became much discouraged, for previous  to my accident I, had always been a  healthy woman.. About this time I  received a pamphlet telling me of the  strengthening powers of Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills. I procured a box at once  and began using them, when they  were gone I got three boxes more,  and by the time I had used these I  found myself somewhat stronger and  my appetite much better. Before I  began the Pills I could scarcely  walk up stairs, and could do no work  at all. Now alter taking three boxes  I was able to walk out in tlie open  air. I kept on with the Pills, and  after using six boxes was delighted to  find that I could again attend to my  household affairs. I took two more  boxes of tho Pills, and 1 felt that I  was as well as ever I had been, and  equal to any kind of exertion.

Tub working man who invests  310 a month in a million or million and a half company, the only  asset of which is a hole in the  ground from 10 to J00 feet deep,  deserves to lose his money. Experienced mining men will jump  at any mining proposition , that  shows possibilities of largo dividends. The fako promoter lives  upon the inexperienced.  ijome one of, the leading industries  in the district. This would necessitate the importation of a' large  number of "expert"''"witnesses, but  there are hundreds of able-bodieil  loafers who would gladly settle  hero if they were given the oppor,*  tunity to.testify two weeks in the  month at S2 per d.ty.

When a "promoter" attempts to develop a property ou a profit.sharing basis, the  worker should give ita wide, berth.
